Today, we are pleased to announce the first ever Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Guild Summit, being hosted in Austin, TX in March. Over the course of a few days, guild leaders from around the world will gather together to discuss the state of the game with the developers from BioWare Austin. Guild leaders (or a designated officer in the event of a guild leader being unable to attend) will participate in Q&A sessions with developers, roundtable feedback discussions, and will get a preview of some upcoming game features.

The goal of the summit is to facilitate an open discussion between guild leaders and the game design team. This event will provide an opportunity for attendees to voice their feedback directly to the teams responsible for the design of Star Wars: The Old Republic, hear the team’s thoughts and reasons behind design decisions, and discuss the current direction of the game.

The Guild Summit will be hosted from March 4th – 6th, 2012 at the DoubleTree Hotel Austin. Due to space limitations, the event will be invite-only. We've already invited guilds of various backgrounds and sizes to the Summit, from Endgame to Role-playing to PvP guilds, but we've got some space left for additional guild leaders who wish to attend. We ask that interested leaders submit an application, which can be found at this link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SWTORGuildSummit).* Guild leaders will be evaluated based on the information provided in their application.

While we welcome applications from guild leaders from anywhere in the world, please be advised that the Summit will be conducted entirely in English. Applications will be accepted until 11:59PM CST (GMT -6) on February 10th. If you have any questions regarding the event, send us an email at guilds@swtor.com!

*Must be 21 or older to attend. Guild leaders selected to attend are responsible for all of their travel, food, and lodging expenses."

I'd donate to a fund to help send Joe or one of our officers to this if we were invited.

Smart move by bioware here. They really need some good ideas. They don't seem to have a clue.

In case it matters, there are currently members within just a couple (<3) hours' drive of Austin, which may make this fund's necessary size MUCH smaller.

I'd volunteer to go if I knew I'd be able to make it down there.

Considering they pick foo, will there be a guild meeting to acquire ideas?

I like to see them taking their "user centric" focus seriously. Hopefully they let Joe go and ask the tough questions.

Yep. And some likely forum discussion :)

If I don't go, it's likely leadership from one of the other guilds we work closely with will. In that case I'll try to get our input to one of those GM's.
