About MMO Bits
MMO Bits is an MMO Gaming focused website owned by Xam Xam featuring content primarily for Star Wars The Old Republic and Elder Scrolls Online. The site features a mix of news, reviews, opinions and guides.
MMO Bits was founded in December 2017.
MMO Bits is a hobby project born out of Xam Xam’s passion for SWTOR, making content for the game and the desire to eventually expand into creating content for other MMO’s. She has no expertise in website creation and development but has been slowly teaching herself the ropes.
Why ‘MMO Bits’?
The name is a reference to a time in SWTOR history (during the 4.0 era) when only story content was being released. The Developers referred to the MMO elements the game was lacking new content for (and players kept asking for) on their streams as the ‘MMO Bits’.
About Xam Xam
My name is Rachel an Aussie, cat lover and select MMO gamer, but online, I go by Xam Xam. I previously wrote a Blog for 3 Years called Xam Xam Says before creating MMO Bits. My main (and first MMO I ever played) was Star Wars The Old Republic.
I created MMO Bits as a hobby project born out of a passion for SWTOR and making content for the game and the desire to eventually expand into creating content for other MMO’s. I have no expertise in website creation and development. I am slowly teaching myself all the ropes and hope to eventually be able to turn MMO Bits into an incredibly well-made, quality website.
Since SWTOR introduced me to the MMO genre, I have gone on to also play WildStar (RIP), Elder Scrolls Online and New World.
In SWTOR, my main content focus these days is PvP and Strongholds but I occasionally do Operations with <Hates You>.
SWTOR Content Creation History
I created the Blog Xam Xam Says in December 2014 and closed it in January 2018. It primarily featured content about SWTOR.
I was formerly (roughly mid-2015 to mid-2016) a team member of TORCommunity a SWTOR Fansite with databases, guides, galleries, tools and more.
I have made appearances on various notable SWTOR Podcasts over the years. A full list of appearances can be found below.
SWTOR Content Creator Spotlight
I was featured in Star Wars The Old Republic’s Content Creator Community Spotlight series in September 2019! You can read the interview here: The Community Content Creators of SWTOR – Meet Xam Xam.
I am active on Twitter as part of the SWTOR Family Community there. I tweet a lot using the #SWTOR and #swtorfamily hashtags.
I became a part of SWTOR’s Content Creator Program (formerly the Influencer Program) in November 2017! You can learn more about the Content Creator Program from this official Article and Swtorista’s Video.
I started Streaming on Twitch in August 2021 and have intermittently continued streaming since then.
MMO Bits Language
English Australian/UK is the primary language used on this website. However, since the games covered use English – US, it is likely there will be some overlap and minor inconsistency in terms of spelling and grammar. So you may see some English – US and English – Australian/UK used interchangeably even in the same articles. Both languages have different spelling and grammar conventions. I typically try to stick to English Australian/UK grammar conventions.
