Star Wars Celebration 2019 is nearly upon us and for the first time, the SWTOR Fan Community will be playing a part! Headed up by @swtorista, the Community will have their own booth at the event, along with swag, giveaways and much more. Passionate SWTOR players will be staffing the stand letting Star Wars fans meet the very-active gamers of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Below you can also enter a competition of my own to win a 30-day SWTOR Game-Time code!

Who is the SWTOR Fan Community?
The Community is made up of SWTOR players, content creators, bloggers, streamers and podcasters. While it is not affiliated with Bioware, it nevertheless will be shameless in being positive in promoting the game and those who enjoy time creating and playing their characters during the Old Republic era.
You will be able to find them at Booth #1344 next to Cosplayers of the Old Republic.
