Star Wars: The Old Republic celebrates its 11th year anniversary and to say that a lot has happened would be an understanding. Some of the latest changes include the launch of the game's eighth expansion early this year, and also the Update 7.2 released early this month which introduced a new planet.

Keith Kanneg and the SWTOR team revealed in a post that despite the challenges, they were able to adapt and move forward with meaning and purpose. It helped them make sure to focus on what made the game good while also admitting that there are things that still need improvements.
