Could you please look into this :

I'm unable to go to Corellia

I'm unable to launch KOTFE 15

and i'm unable to launch KOTET 1

 

In each case, i get stuck on an endless loading screen and the only thing i can do is close the game, go back to it and try finding something else to do as no matter how long i wait or how many times i try, it's always the same.

Alredy had these issues before the latest patch, but i've no idea what is causing them.

Hey, that's nice and all, but does this mean that players who have already passed a point where they would receive the lightsaber will have it added to their inventory?

 

Good point, one that deserves a direct non-waffling answer from the dev's

Excellent news on all the fixes being rolled out so quickly :D

 

Thanks guys. Fingers crossed it rolls out issue free.

 

Edit: I noticed this bug I reported isn’t on the patch notes.

Can we please find out if the removal of the Iokath Recombinator from the Jawa junk vendor (Izzar) is intentional or a bug that is slated to be fixed.

None of this worked for me.

 

What did work was removing BitRaider from my Launcher Console and moving to direct download.

 

EA/Bioware, fix this. There are multiple times where you deploy an update and then we can't log in for DAYS because bitraider didn't like something.

Thank you for your patience as we maintain Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

 

Is this patching Maintenance the reason this weeks conquest finished 6 hours early and was the earlier time posted anywhere?

 

I was just about to complete my last characters conquest totals for the week and push my guild over the 2 Mil target.

The consequence of the earlier conquest time means that my guild missed its target by just under 100K and 4 of my characters failed to meet their personal 50K targets.

Hi Esra,

 

Our last Game Update 6.2 'Echoes of Vengeance' changed the Conquest reset timer, making it match the Weekly Mission reset timer.

 

Dan posted more information about that change in the following thread: December In-Game Event Schedule

 

Hey everyone!

 

I wanted to follow-up here with some clarity on a few things. Conquests will begin at 12:00pm GMT, so the previous Conquest week will end at 11:00am GMT to allow for the hour cooldown period between events.

 

Some of you have been curious why we're making this timing change. We have aspects of SWTOR that reset on a weekly basis - Operations lockouts, Weekly Mission Resets, Conquests, etc. We know that these events are important for players and some modify their playtime based on when these resets happen. Aligning all our reset timers makes things easier for players to keep up to date with SWTOR, provides an expectation for future resets, and helps prevent potential development problems on our end when having multiple systems using different resetting behavior.

Will this also be fixing the issue of Jace Malcom and Acina both showing as dead when Jace Malcom should be alive, for my Imp's who sided Republic on Iokath, or will I still have to wait to take two Imperial's through the story until it's fixed? :o Edited by Farferello
