Planetary Conquest & After Event

Reoccurs: Weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays

Category: Planetary Conquest
Our Tuesday and Thursday conquest events give everybody the chance to do the large group activities such as destroying enemy base defenses, killing Battle Masters and slaying large open world monsters. Afterwards we usually run special event SM+HMx16 boss kills, easy-medium difficulty raids or open world monster boss kills.

Because of the patch 5.8 conquest changes we do not know what the objectives for the week will be in advance. This means that you have to signup blind. If you want to help the guild with conquest and score yourself some easy points then signup for the conquest event and whatever follows it. Our event leader will talk the group through the evening's activities at the event start time.

Signup order does not guarantee a spot. The most people we can take each night is 24 and for the events which end with raids we do drop it down to 16 later on. For that part we will be picking the best team composition from the signups. Our priority is to pick the group with the best chance of success. Keep in mind that we repeat the Tuesday event each Thursday.

What Are Planetary Conquests?
  • Each week the guild gets to invade one planet from a small selection
  • Guild members earn points by completing conquest objectives which you can see on your conquest panel
  • The conquest objectives are a mix of killing Conquest Commanders, heroic missions, group finder flashpoints/operations, crafting, PvP and GSF
  • Basically you get points for just doing normal stuff, no extra work required!
  • At the end of each week, the guild with the highest score for the planet wins
  • You get a bunch of loot along with legacy titles and achievements for each target conquered
  • To get the title you must reach your weekly point goal on at least one character in the guild and log in within 3 days of us winning the #1 position
  • If you want to learn all about Planetary Conquest and how you can help improve your scores then head over to our Conquest page which has all the details in one place
  • You must have access to your personal starship so you can accept the group summons, otherwise you must make your own way to each location. The group will not wait for you as over the course of the event this can delay things by 20-30 minutes which is not fair on everybody else
  • For the raids and special boss kills we ask everybody to have StarParse and Teamspeak installed and setup
  • Make sure to be in the "War Room" Teamspeak channel 5-10 minutes before the start time
  • If you can not attend then please give us at least 30 minutes notice before the event start time
    • Change your signup to a No
    • Post a comment here to explain your absence as event organisers may miss whispers

Conquest Update
Although we know this will be the Rishi/Yavin conquest week we are going to be treating it as the first patch 5.8 random conquest. Our updated conquest system means that the conquest event now has signups enabled and there is no separate event for the raid after. If you want to join the raid then you have to signup for the conquest event and be there.

The primary reason for this is because we can no longer tell in advance how long the openworld objectives will take. Some weeks there are 6+ objectives to complete which can take over an hour. Other weeks there are 2 objectives which are covered in 15 minutes. This means we can't have a fixed start time for the raids.

Black Knight Nyaard
Miley Fury has been doing a great job handling the openworld objectives and he is now joined by Nyaard who will be in charge of the raids that follow. He will look at the raid objectives each week and decide the best way to handle the raid(s) for the evening. It could be final boss lockouts or it could be completing the entire raid. On weeks were there is no raid objective he will pick something he thinks the group can handle that won't get them locked out from guild raids scheduled later in the week. He has a proven record of being a badass nightmare raider and I'm sure he will do a great job with the conquest raids.
So it *was* random after all, thanks for the incorrect info BW!
Thanks for the update and rationale behind this change Ula. While I can understand and even agree with the reasoning it does unfortunately mean that those like myself who are unable to commit to being online for 7pm (GMT) but can commit to being online at 8pm (GMT) now no longer have anything we can sign up for (thanks for nothing BioWare!). Is there any possibility of having something with a start time of 8pm (GMT) that could be signed up for even if only once per week and/or on different days?
