Patch 1.3 for Star Wars: The Old Republic is now live and available to download.
To download the patch simply log-in to the game. Patch 1.3, Allies, brings with it the new highly-requested Group Finder tool which allows you to find groups for Flashpoints, Heroic Missions, and Operations all with a few simple clicks. The patch also brings several balance changes and miscellaneous bug fixes.
The Group Finder was desperately needed due to the amount of group content that is in the game. It would take up to half an hour to form a group without this system and that was putting a lot of players off, creating an unnecessary barrier to entry. Hopefully this patch will remove that barrier and allow more players to enjoy the content that BioWare spent time creating.
