CU[edit | edit source]

Combat Upgrade. The next big project the SWG development team worked on after the launch of JTL. Once called the Combat Revamp, this change attempted to balance out combat throughout the game. The CU was designed to balance all of the combat professions as well as give each specific roles in battle. Because this undertaking covered a lot of content and changes, it took a long time before testing was ever completed.

The CU was originally slated to go live with the Rage of the Wookiees expansion, on May 5. However, the Devs and SOE pushed the date up 6 Days, to April 30, much to some players' dismay. The Combat Upgrade existed as Publish 15 for the general ground game, free for everyone. The Devs made it clear the you would not have to buy the expansion to get the new combat system.

For some details on changes with the Combat Upgrade, see the Combat Upgrade Changes page.

CURB[edit | edit source]

Combat Upgrade/Revamp/Balance. Another term for the CU originally concocted by the early CU Alpha Testers as "CU/R/B", which was a joke alluding to the Combat Upgrade's two former names (Combat Revamp and Combat Balance).
