SWTOR Game Update 4.7 Patch Notes

SWTOR Patch Notes for Game Update 4.7 that will arrive on Tuesday after maintenance (5 – 9 am PST).

Current game version does not match the server’s. | 08.08.2016, 02:54 PM

Hey folks!

We have figured out what the issue is and we have a few options on how to proceed. What we are going to do is we are going to move tomorrow’s maintenance up to right now, meaning there will no longer be a maintenance tomorrow morning. Within the next 15-30 minutes we will be bringing all servers down as we deploy Game Update 4.7 and Chapter 16.

This means that as the servers come back up 4.7 will be live and you will have access to Chapter 16 Early Access if you qualified. We do apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but with this solution you will be getting Chapter 16 and GU 4.7 even sooner than planned.

This means that starting soon SWTOR servers will be unavailable for approximately 4 hours (hopefully less). We will be keeping SWTOR.com available during this period.

Thank you for your understanding.

Game Update 4.7: The Battle of Odessen
Highlights

  • Chapter 16 – The Battle of Odessen! Prepare to face Arcann in deadly combat as he launches a full-scale assault against the Alliance base on Odessen! Still recovering from a shattering betrayal of the now-renegade droid, SCORPIO, the Outlander’s Alliance must rally to defeat Arcann’s forces in a desperate battle to determine the fate of the galaxy!
  • New Alliance Alert: Shining in the Darkness! Something is fishy on Nar Shaddaa. Voss Mystic Sana-Rae’s most recent vision will send you to the Smuggler’s Moon in search of a mysterious Force user. Luckily Blizz is sure he knows exactly who she means and will be tagging along for the ride.
  • New Pack Opening Experience! This new experience enhances the way you open packs, store, and acces your items. Read more about this feature in our Community Blog.
  • Collections Improvement! Collections has seen a slight re-organization! For ease of use, Collections now has several helpful subcategories to help you quickly find a weapon type or creature mount. Companions now have their own Collection category.

General

  • Weapon Tuning slots have been added to Level 50 Operation and PvP weapons.
  • Players can now use the Companion Locator Terminal in the Alliance Base Camp to regain Companions which became unavailable due to The Fallen Empire storyline.

    What a piece of shit update. This game is dead. An absolute embarassment to MMOs everywhere. I’m surprised the morons at Bioware have not added a first person shooter component to the game yet the way things have gone since Rise of the Hutt Cartel.

    Look at this pathetic piece of dog shit. How many times do people need to fight Arcann? Sigh. Even the story is recycled and sold as new.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Even sex is better than this shit

    Gee that’s just what everyone needed. You really know us well bioware. Fuck you

  • fromm_cartel

    Any data on the 220 gear EC vendor? Legacy gear? Maybe some legacy ear/implant/relics?

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      are you serious? Are expecting information from eaware? Real and tangible info? From a company that can’t make an ops in 1 year?

      LOL

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Collections Improvement! Collections has seen a slight re-organization! For ease of use, Collections now has several helpful subcategories to help you quickly find a weapon type or creature mount. Companions now have their own Collection category.

    Are you shitting me? Who asked for this shit?!!! Give us new operations you fuckheads

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Weapon Tuning slots have been added to Level 50 Operation and PvP weapons.

    Vomits*

    Players can now use the Companion Locator Terminal in the Alliance Base Camp to regain Companions which became unavailable due to The Fallen Empire storyline. You must complete Chapter XVI before this option is available. Note that the terminal does not allow you to regain Companions which were guests (such as Darth Marr).

    What a tremendous piece of shit. It took 16 terrible chapters to get real companions back. Typical bullshit from EAware

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Characters wielding a Vibroblade and a Lightsaber no longer use the One-Handed idle stance.

    Can fix this but still won’t fix datacron bugs. You know, things that matter!

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    The Character Sheet now displays correct values for Companion damages and no longer takes Equipment into account.

    Welcome to update 4.7 Rise of the Companion Fixes

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    The graphics setting Bloom now works properly with skyboxes when using MSAA.

    I think I would have unsubbed if this had not been fixed. They listened to my prayers!!!

    Said no one ever.

    • Decimal

      Looking over your posts here I suppose you could be more obnoxious.

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        No one can be more obnoxious than the fucking losers at Bioware you continue to support with your money.

        • Decimal

          Faulty assumptions. I expected no less.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Republic Characters now receive the “Sarlacc Stomper” Title and Codex Entry upon completion of the Mission “[HEROIC 2+] The Long Goodbye.”

    A title and a codex. I rather get a blowjob from Musco’s girlfriend

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Jedi Consular Players now receive “The First Son (Consular)” Codex Entry during the Mission “Chaos and Harmony.”

    Well at least it’s not a nerf

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Sith Warrior Players now receive the “Halidrell Setsyn” Codex Entry on completion of the Mission “Seek Your Contact.”

    Just what this class needed. More useless junk. Fix concentration you lazy fucks

    • Kobie

      Holy whine spam.

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        Just saying the truth.

  • Macleod

    Someone change his diaper so he stops crying…please.

    • Decimal

      Seriously.

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        The truth hurts buddy boy. Perhaps you should email EAware to let them know how happy you are with the shit content they have given you for 20 months and counting now.

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      Unlike you I don’t take EAware’s dick up my ass. How does that feel by the way? I mean clearly you like defending a company who couldn’t care less what you want

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Achievements for the Mission “Arma Rasa” now properly appear in the Legacy window.

    Oh my, the legacy window, the window to the soul. Thank you EAware!

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Color Crystals can now be previewed without first previewing a weapon.

    LMFAO if this isn’t a worthless addition/change idk what is

    • Vladislav

      Actually now i can watch crystall from CM and sigh not from Dulfy, but from game itself, if i will return to this shit ever again..

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Flipping the Minimap vertically no longer covers the “Exit Area” button with the PvE/PvP Focus Switch.

    ROFLMAO this one is for the PVP quitters. Rage quit I owned you with my concealment and you cried to EAware for nerf.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    The Dark vs. Light: Flashpoint Master Achievement is now a requirement for completing the Dark vs. Light: Legend Achievement as intended.

    More pointless requirements. How about you require two new OPERATIONS per year you giant shitholes

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Fixed a visual issue with the Overwatch Captain’s Helmet.

    Blatant Copyright Infringement. I hope Blizzard sues the fuck outta them

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    A new vendor has been added outside the Eternal Championship. This new vendor sells 220 Rating items for Eternal Championship Trophies.

    LOL that shit should be free.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Removed the Group Finder Tactical Flashpoint Mission that was incorrectly appearing on the Republic Fleet’s Priority Missions Terminal.

    Mark my words, this fix will break another mission.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Attack effects no longer fire from the feet of Annihilator T4-1D.

    Who the fuck complained about this? L2P for fuck sakes

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    M1-4X’s Quick Kolto Burst now fires from his cannon instead of his chest, which he considers a marked improvement.

    Oh he does? I guess he’s a living thing like musco’s girlfriend on my dick

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    The description of the Heroic Transport item on the Mission “Search and Rescue” now references the correct Mission.

    What a life saving fix. I thought life was over.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    The description of the Heroic Transport item on the Mission “Factory Recall” now references the correct Mission.

    Nothing like fixing references no one gives two shits about. Priceless

  • MTCason

    Someone clearly has a chip on their shoulder. Anyhow, good stuff from my point of view. Is this new Alliance Alert for Guss or is it another companion in addition to that? Dare we hope, Kira?

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      You didn’t read this shit at all. There’s only one addition/change that’s worth it on this shitty ass list. Credit increase for all heroic missions. Nothing else is “good stuff”. Quit sucking EAware’s cock. Their semen is visible on your lips.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Imperial and Republic Commanders now only spawn in PvP Instances.

    Who cried? Sigh.

    • AGF

      Stop whining and go somewhere else, not liking the game? stop playing it. And don’t spam comments here.

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        Clearly a EAware employee. Go make new ops. For all other things…shut the fuck up

        • AGF

          Clearly an angry 12 year old… xD

          • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

            I’m trying to save you 15 bucks a month and instead you rather lose 15 bucks a month because you don’t have the brain capacity to see that Bioware doesnt give a shit about you or what you want. Just your money.

            There’s no hope for you. But I still try to save you.

            • AGF

              If I want to lose money then that’s my choice, you have no right to instruct me or insult me. If you think it’s a loss, then simply unsubscribe or go to the Forums, and that’s it! Who are you to “save” me? or judge my “Brain capacity”? you filth
              P.S: Not all of us pay every month, some are preferred or past-subs…
              I see there is no hope replying to an angry child behind a screen, not even the Force can save you…

    • Emprah

      You are a retard. Did your mother snort glue while she was pregnant? Seems like she did.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Increased the Credit reward amount of all Heroic Missions.

    This is the only change worth talking about. The only one. Everything else on this list is absolute cow shit. Only credit increases are worthwhile. If you don’t agree fuck you.

  • Revan

    My game is bugged? I just downloaded this new patch today and I can access the new cartel pack thing.

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      What else is fucking new. This game is always broken. ALWAYS.

      • Gguy

        “points at the door” if you got the problem,leave

  • CRYPT from CATACOMBZ

    So still nothing about adding tuning slot in to Vibroswords? How suprising

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      Expected more from EAware? That’s like expecting sex from your teacher

  • Disqus this

    Thats some pretty boring patch notes other than that mediocre, single player, short story is over (for now at least anyway).

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      LMFAO. Only credit increase to heroic missions is worth something. The rest feels like content I would gladly wipe my asshole with.

      • Gguy

        then you lack taste

  • ScicleX

    Meaningless post to exacerbate RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures crying.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    Meaningful post to tell all the Bioware cocksuckers you’re being robbed of 15 bucks a month.

    Even netflix offers better content for 9 bucks a month.

    • The Undertaker

      Go to Netflix, you Bantha rear-end.. Or post on the games Forums, don’t spam your shit here!

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        Bioware just spammed their shitty update with 1, I repeat ONE FUCKING WORTHWHILE change. Yet my posts which are meant to save you money are your issue LMAO

        • Gguy

          your posts are meant to tell us how butthurt you are over small matters

        • slimj091

          The only way your posts would save me money is if you die while posting your posts so I don’t have to pay for the welfare your family lives on.

    • Gguy

      they need to make a living,they are a big company you know?!
      and they aren’t “robbing” you of anything…you choose to pay yourself!

  • Pretty sure someone pulled the trigger early on this one. I just downloaded all of the assets… a day early? :/ Idiots.

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      What else is new. A bioware fuck up is as common as STD among black people

  • Paratrooper1776

    Must be nice to talk shit to other people behind a computer. You are clearly a cowardly little bitch. If you don’t like the game, then quit. Nobody wants to read your bitching and crying.

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      I am trying to save you money. Is eric musco’s cock really that tasty that you just can’t stop sucking it?

      • Paratrooper1776

        Please save everyone’s time and suck start a pistol. Time is more valuable to us than $15 a month. Though I would pay $15 to watch you livestream the event.

        • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

          It would be a better investment than the one you are spending it now LMAO. You slob, You are the perfect bioware customer. Clueless.

          • Paratrooper1776

            And you are still a worthless little bitch. Go figure…

            • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

              I can see musco’s cum on your lips. I’m surprised you have time to reply to me while holding that chode in your mouth.

              • Paratrooper1776

                I’m sorry, I don’t speak little bitch. Maybe act like a man, grow a pair, and move on. I might listen to you then.

              • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

                Funny you say that because you’re pretty attentive to everything I post right now lmfao. Game set and match. Owning bioware’s white knights is too easy

              • Paratrooper1776

                Wow… that’s all you have? Hurry and get your sad excuses for shit talking in now before your Mom wakes up and takes the computer back.

              • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

                Says “that’s all you got”

                Replies with a mom joke

                lmfao Kid you are extremely easy.

              • Gguy

                1:bioware is doing a good job,but they ain’t your damn servants.
                2:bugs come and bugs go…bioware ain’t gods.
                3:if you got a problem with the game,you can always stop playing,nobody is forcing you…but we won’t tolerate your insults and constant judging

              • Vladislav

                1. So you paying money and do not expect that they will be repaid? Hey. Can you pay me too? I like do nothing for money.
                2. and not good dev guys too..
                3. let me guess, “the one do not play this RIGHT NOW must do not discuss this game”?

              • Diadas

                Preety attentive to everything your saying?….says the one that reply’s to every comment here..give it a rest

              • Beto Pani Rivera

                But my friend lets se, if you have the chance to make the game great again, what you would you do???

              • Vladislav

                I will answer instead.

                They can listen to forums.Once they did it, remember thing about “Representative from each AC”? That was pretty well. Why they stopped doing this?

      • Gguy

        paratrooper is right,if you don’t like the game…leave,i can’t stand people complaining about every damn thing…

        your kind would complain if an update came out half a minute too late O_O

        • Michael

          If you don’t like the complaining here then leave. I can’t stand people who come here to complain about the complaining

  • Yallida

    LoL anyone else download this “patch” and get error info about game version?

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      LMAO and the error reporting begins. Whenever I think of Bioware I think about three things.

      Errors, Shit, and Gonorrhea

      • Revan

        No error here. I can access my characters. But I got a warn that it isnt the same version that the server uses.

        • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

          That would be an error

          • Gguy

            that will be fixed…

    • pox

      Just wait for the 4.7a patch on friday.
      Early access?
      Yeah, it’s gone, sry, best regards BioWare

  • Yallida

    WTH?!

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      Yep exactly. Fucking bioware just makes you lose your cool.

      • Gguy

        bugs come and bugs go…getting pissed of something like this is just a selfish as hell act

        • Vladislav

          And if company half good they fix most of them in pre-public servers.

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      I am terribly sorry you have to go through this. You deserve better. A paying customer deserves better.

  • Need2Crash

    I dont see any game fixes

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      LMFAO game what? That’s like expecting Donald Trump to build the wall himself.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    I aint even playing. I wanna fight Musco and whoop his ass on a livestream. Sick of this shit. MMO players deserve better.

    Oh wait, this isn’t an MMO anymore. Oops my bad.

    • guest

      Then why do you care about it? It’s just a waste of time…

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        I care about the players. The ones that are being robbed. The ones that ask for new end game content but instead get a new way to open cartel market packs

        SHAKING MY FUCKING HEAD

        • guest

          But if people didn’t like it why do they pay £10 a month for it?

          • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

            Only they know. Only they know why they would choose to support a company that only sees $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

            • guest

              So BW should not care about the money and go bankrupt?

              • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

                There would be even more money if there was more content. If anything they’d be better off financially taking THAT route then the SOLO RPG route which has caused many players to leave.

              • guest

                If BW cares only about money surely they would pick the rout that offers more profit? So what they are doing now makes more profit.

              • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

                But you lose your core players. Hell you even lose trust in their ability to communicate with the players. A profit increase is nice for their overlords EA. If other gaming companies can find a great balance between increasing profits and providing content for players why can’t bioware? And you can’t say size because they’re big enough now especially with the increase in star wars awareness the last few years among younger crowds.

              • guest

                But there a company, why should they care about people who don’t play there game? If they are making max profit why should they change it?

    • Gguy

      L-E-A-V-E

    • ZapTheSheep

      This past weekend, my entire guild started playing SWG again. Most fun we have had as an entire group since December of last year. F@ck you, biofail.

  • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

    I remember the days when we would be extremely excited to read the patch notes. Those days are long gone. Rise of the Hutt Cartel was the last expansion done right by Bioware.

    • Gguy

      your personal opinion,i think everything they ever released was good

      • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

        If by everything you mean bugged content, overpowered companions and monthly cartel packs, then yes I agree.

        • Gguy

          don’t see the problem with that,and bugs are bound to happen in any game…game development is hard

          • Vladislav

            Khem. Yeah. In any game. There you right. And how good dev guys depends on how FAST they fix them. I didn’t seen FAST fix from bioware in last 2 years perhaps. Except CM. CM they fix in 1-3 hours

          • Paulo Gomes

            Are you kidding??? There are bugs around that have been with us SINCE LAUNCH… Yeah sure, every game of this kind has bugs, that’s a given… But not solving them is just lazy…

  • Frank Rizzo

    I agree with you 100%, RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures. I too am an angry manchild baby.

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      Thanks for sharing. Now let’s pay our respects to a once great game. A dead game now.

      RIP SWTOR

      • Gguy

        the game is as alive as ever

        • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

          This game is nowhere near as alive as the days of Rise of the hutt cartel. NOWHERE NEAR those levels.

          • Cody

            Already rise of the hutt cartel started the slow decline in the story… back in the days, when it was worth playing other characters, for more that just one or to dialoge changes…

  • Nuno Bacharel

    So… Am I getting the new update right now? Is that it?

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      What does your heart say?

      • Nuno Bacharel

        Spare me your hate, please 🙂

        • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

          LOL okay. But only because you asked nicely.

      • Guest

        Shut up mom! You’re sending me away with some creepy long haired hippy!

    • Noomi

      They are taking the servers down now … we’ll be getting early early access to Chapter 16 and 4.7! 😀

  • s9

    What? We only get one alert? The one wich was delayed? Are they kidding me, this is the fkcing last chapter! This dev eam skcs!

    • RIP SWTOR: Solo Adventures

      Preach the truth.

    • Gguy

      they are still humans,not magicians and not your slaves either,take it or get out

      • mr. mice

        Yes, they are humans. But if you take a look what other humans with the same job can do, you’ll see they are stupid, untalented, greedy and lazy.

        • Gguy

          i care to disagree,the dev team is filled with nice folks. You people are so focused on minor bugs…give it a rest

          unless the bug makes the game explode…it can wait

          • GGguy

            Gguy it’s okay if you like this shit. I’m also willing to bet you started playing recently (year tops). So you have more content. Some of us have been here since day one and we have seen how incompetent they are.

            I will concede that not everything in the game sucks, but the bugs, lack of pve content, ranked NOW finally getting attention, it adds up for those of us who have been here.

            • Gguy

              no,actually..i have been playing since not longer after launch of SWTOR

            • guest

              There are alot of good people who work really hard on the game.

    What date was needed to get early access?

    • Sozinho

      Being sub as of 26th july. iirc.

  • kölz

    Did a Tactical today, none of the daily or weekly quest was finished by doing that! And there is no word about fix. Just removed some mysterious “Group Finder Tactical Flashpoint Mission that was incorrectly appearing on the Republic Fleet’s Priority Missions Terminal”. But the whole daily shit is fucked up on public side!

    • Sozinho

      Do you have another FP on your mission log unfinished? That happenend to me once, I abandoned one unfinished FP that I had and problem solved. And, yes, I agree with you, they need to fix that, no need to us to see how we can solve it.

  • guest

    So they retroactively added the flashpoint master achievement to the legacy tier requirement.
    Bet you a million credits its going to be bugged for people like me who completed all the HM FP’s already and won’t be retroactively granted to my legacy tier achievement.

    Any Bioware employee reading this please for zildrog’s sake double check this before you release the patch.

    Current game version does not match the server’s. | 08.08.2016, 02:54 PM
    Hey folks!

    We have figured out what the issue is and we have a few options on how to proceed. What we are going to do is we are going to move tomorrow’s maintenance up to right now, meaning there will no longer be a maintenance tomorrow morning. Within the next 15-30 minutes we will be bringing all servers down as we deploy Game Update 4.7 and Chapter 16.

    This means that as the servers come back up 4.7 will be live and you will have access to Chapter 16 Early Access if you qualified. We do apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but with this solution you will be getting Chapter 16 and GU 4.7 even sooner than planned.

    This means that starting soon SWTOR servers will be unavailable for approximately 4 hours (hopefully less). We will be keeping SWTOR.com available during this period.

    Thank you for your understanding.

        You are giving people who have complaints about the game a bad name with the childish trolling. Yes there are alot of people who dislike the direction of the game and want moar group content.

        I have half a mind to think you are some alinsky troll Bioware employee flooding comments sections with inane babble to deligitimize people who dont like the direction of the game.

        • Dragon

          I’ll be happy when people stop intentionally misspelling things. Yeah, I can read it and know what you mean, but what’s the point? Oh look, you typed “moar” instead of “more”! Wow, you’re so cool! Let me e-mail all of my credits and moist panties to you!

  • guest

    We are owed 2 alliance alerts from all the delays (skadge/rusk and zenith). Wonder if they will sprinkle these out over the next couple of months to help mitigate the content drought or they will just recycle them for next expansion. And when am I getting my HK mission?

    That new 220 ET Champ vendor is intriguing, I have hundereds of those stupid useless trophies. Hopefully is ear/implant/relic/standalone mod and not more idiotic static gear.

    • Guest

      It won’t be moddable, and there will be no main hand weapon.

      • guest

        are we at least getting ear/implant/relic? that would be the most useful to me

        • sdfasfaase

          I hope not. If it is, I hope it is worse than the ops token gear still

    • Guest

      What do you mean we are “owed”? They NEVER said that Skadge/rusk and Zenith were coming. Just because someone datamined (against the TOS I believe) that doesn’t mean it is “owed” to us. You millennials and your sense of entitlement.

      • Gguy

        i agree,bioware doesn’t owe you anything,doesn’t steal nor take anything from you.
        bioware made the game and they choose how it will develop,you can accept it or leave…if you are pissed about paying…you can leave…games take lots of money and work ,time and patience to make…they need to make a living…

          • xw-0-qw

            We’ll see. My best guess: Koth. He smells like a traitor.

            • sdasdfasdfasfa

              Koth hates Arcann. It is probably Senya to force your hand to face him and Vaylin.

              It is possible that Scorpio told Arcann. It is possible that something was put on the Outlander’s ship/s before leaving in the final chapter.

              • Gguy

              • Zachary Williams

                A game that was and continues to be marketed as an “MMORPG” that lacks any way of doing the successively releasing content with multiple players gaining credit while in a group is failing to deliver the type of game that people are paying them to deliver. At the VERY LEAST there needs to be some way of doing the monthly chapters in a group of 4 where everyone rolls on conversations and everyone gets credit for the content being cleared.

      • Rompe Himself

        You’re so right. KOTFE is so far from being a single player game. In fact I think I’ll sub again and enjoy the shitty final chapter of KOTFE grouped up with my wife and another guildie and we can all smash Arcann together………………….oh wait. 😛

    • Thinktank

      Every new chapter should be a mini game that you can play while waiting for the end of maintanice.

      • Jinn Kazama

        I had always thought that about the space on rails missions. Isolated from the rest of the game… no need to change gear no interaction with any other players. 100% single player expect for chat…

  • keyb°rdbrokjn

    That’s what european players asking for all the time!

    • Aiko

      You are asleep at 2 PM CEST?

      • 9966+f

        Maintenance is now. It’s now 0:00/24:00. And yes, most people are at sleep at night in Europe.

        • Zachary Williams

          Since the best alternative is one that gives the most peak hours of access to the most players available, putting maintenance right after the end of the work day in the US is clearly not optimal. Would you appreciate the game being unavailable from 5 pm to 8 or 9 pm GMT? Less people play in the morning/midday than play in the evening regardless of timezone. Best maintenance time is one that hits everyone in non-peak hours, so the normal early morning US and midday to early afternoon Europe is a compromise that everyone should be glad to have.

          Except for Oceania, sorry guys.

          • Kplz

            Lets be real, they can put the maintanence window at anytime. The same low population is around no matter what.

      Lowbies are killing commanders?

    • Sozinho

      PVP phases are pretty empty, I leveled a character for DvL and always used PVP instances (to avoid spawnning times and H2 over populated), and guess what… I was the only one in almost all planets, and only found one character of the other faction in Belsavis. So, Imho, they are forcing the use of the instance in order to justify their existence.

    • Gguy

      i doubt they would get “ganked”…base commander are usally taken on by big ops groups and guildies…if you are a high enough lvl to take the guards out…then your group members would be able to deffend you if a single pvper came by

  • TheTruthIsOutThere

    Transation:

    One of us came out of our Cartel Market coma long enough to realize we were stupid enough to launch this final chapter on the same day WoW is dropping its Broken Shore Event, early access to a new playable class (what’s that?), and open-world pve demon invasions (group content…weirdos.) With this excuse we can get the end to our flaccid “expansion” over with well before everyone forgets about us. However, if you’re not a Blizzfanboi, don’t fret! THE NEW PACK OPENING EXPERIENCE is here to keep you busy until the fall!!!!!!!

    Wrong, I can’t access the chapter, I was sub until 31th july. And, of course, being pref I can’t post in the forums.
    First bug in this patch, so nice…

    • Matt Man

      you are preffered now so you dont get early acces, its for subs only

      • Paulo Gomes

        Yep, absolutely correct.

        • Sozinho

          No, they offered to give access in certain date and then moved it, so they wrote this:

          “Although we are moving the date, we want to reassure you that we are taking the necessary steps to ensure that you will not have any access issues when the time comes:

          Players who qualified in July for the Sub Reward will still receive the July Subscriber reward on July 26th.

          Players who qualified for early access by being a Sub on July 1 will still have early access to the Chapter on August 9th.

          Players subscribed as of July 28th, will be granted access to Chapter XVI when it goes live on August 9th.”

          I can’t post in the forums, will be good to see what the devs says about it.

          Ty for comment!

          • The Watchmen

            The hidden thing they dont tell you is even if you were a sub on X date, you still have to be subbing on the day of early release. Believe me, it happened to me twice his year (Chp 13 and 15). If you arent subbing tomorrow, you aren’t getting early release, period

            • Sozinho

              What a shame! Ty for the info.

            • Paulo Gomes

              Yes, I was going to reply to Sozinho (which is Portuguese for Alone hehehe) but you beat me to it.

              The truth is the way they phrase this is misleading.

              You have to be a sub to experience Early Access I’m afraid…

            • Matt Man

              why wouldnt you have to sub? ITS BRAND NEW CONTENT and has been that way since the dawn of this game

              • The Watchmen

                I know that myself. I was making the point for the guy the didnt know. Reason I got screwed was my bank has weird posting times for my work checks so twice now I didnt have the money for the sub to renew. I have since switched banks and no more issues

            • Don Loco

              Yes indeed. They screw you on the fine details there.

          • Matt Man

            still need to sub when the date is dropped lol

        • Matt Man

          why do people think you can have brand new “premium” (i say that lightly) content without subbing? eat shit if you want the new stuff you HAVE to sub period

    Yay, I thought last chapter dropped tomorrow, time to be a casual one last time, finish DvL and KOTFE and unsub to this game once and for all.. Wheres that hk-55 chapter I was promised now for being subbed the duration of this shitter casual story. Just wanna do that and uninstall and never come back until this game gets new group content (as if). Ha

    • jaydog

      You get the Hk-55 chapter after you finish The Battle of ODdessen Chapter (had to go and read the fine print cus i was wondering too)

      • Leonardo Prieto

        where did you find that extra chapter of hk-55?

        • Secundum

          Subscriber reward only, from months and months ago.

    • Rompe Himself

      Please don’t tell me you stuck around JUST for the HK bonus chapter despite how God awful and by the numbers the KOTFE story has been what with how Choices DON’T matter a single fucking iota or how often the same shit is recycled (Arcann fight) to say nothing of how they also recycle existing content and try to play it off as something new to do with DVL.

      Well I don’t know what to say if that’s the case except Bioware is sure laughing at your stupidity considering nothing has been said of what the HK story will have or how long it will be. Hell, for all you know, it may be as cheap and nasty as the Nico companion recruitment mission. I would not put it past the laziness of Bioware.

      Yet I keep seeing here on the comments section as well as thread, people saying they will come good and make up for how lame KOTFE was with the next expansion. That is all the fanboi’s and Bioware drones have left now – Faith that Bioware will come good. Experience and the last year or two shows otherwise.

    • Risqu’e

    Dropped it early with a broken achievement for Flashpoint Master so you can’t get the last level complete. I went to all the trouble to do your old, played out, bullshit content again and you even fuck that up. I hope Eric Musco gets Zika….

    • guest

      I knew this was going to happen when they added FP master to the legendary achievement.

      If you scroll down you can see the prediction. Knew I should have left one FP unfinished when I saw they left FP master out of the legendary aheivement in 4.6

      They are going to have to run a script to fix it like they did last year with the broken conquest achievements.

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Zika? Really??

      First of all, wishing someone would get Zika over a game is ridiculous. Second, Musco is not a dev, he’s just their mouthpiece, yet people like you give him shit for things that are not his fault. .

      • guest

        Musco wasnt the moron who decided to add FP master back into the tier achievement without any consideration for what would happen to those who have already completed it. One of those “we’ll fix it later” type of things. They were desperate no one get that legendary tier without the awful HM FP grind.

  • guest

    FYI
    The new 220 Eternal Championship vendor offers 220 static gear (unmoddable) and 220 ears and implants for 18 eternal championship trophies each (weekly gives 6). No relics though.

    318 Mastery, 231 Power, 160 accuracy/alacrity/crit.
    Exact same as 220 ops token drops (without set bonus of course),
    and much better than the com vendor equivalent.

    Nice place to get ears and implants for those seldom used toons.
    Finally something worth using those trophies or re-running the eternal championship.
    Unless of course they nerf it.

  • Deshik

    Anyone knows why I am unable to play the early acces today?

    They say that to be able to play today you have to be actively subbed on July 1 and I was.

      I hate that new pack shit. Totally takes you out of the game. Literally. I like going to my SH and opening packs and sharing in chat “look at this awesome Cathar sword I just got!” Or “look at this shitty ball toss I just got!”

  • Heya

    Anyone else facepalming the quest for the companion what’s his face? Ugh so ridiculous.

  • Paulo Gomes

    Godamn, this Forum has become toxic… Look, I am not happy with the direction of the game, but insulting one another will get us nowhere.

    Trying to add something worthwhile to the discussion should be your priority, not spamming on EA/BW. I get that many people are frustrated… Hell, I’m one of them! But disrespecting people that think differently is not the way to go, in my modest opinion.

    Let’s try and keep it civil guys. Please.

      I second that, but sadly it will never happen.

  • Estranged

    If you people used the same accountability standards for yourselves as game developers – you would commit seppuku.

    • Senya Tirall

      Get rekt.

      • Estranged

        Hawt!

  • Is anyone stuck patching right now? I’ve been struglling for like 2 hours trying to log in

  • kakkapyllynen

    Something is wrong… I completed Flashpoint Master before 4.7, and it still shows as completed…

  • Ezra Bridger

    Cartel packs experience? Really? That explains why proper bugs like the Guild Window are going unfixed for months. Delusional morons.

  • FlyXan

    Well, the new cartel pack opening mechanism has one huge advantage for sure. I opened 30 DvL packs and I didn’t have to make room in my inventory and I can use those damn XP boosts on other toons as well, who are below lvl65.
    It should not be a feature to be proud of though…it should have been done a long time ago.

    • Name

      Just out of curiosity, are the Bound DvL packs (from the event rewards) still linked to the character that gets them or can you pass their content along to your main characters with that Cartel Market “opening experience”?

      • FlyXan

        I could transfer to my BH’s inventory some items my Shadow got from the bound packs.

        • Secundum

          Not everything you got from those was bound.

          • FlyXan

            Other than the companion gifts everything is bound. Even the XP boosts, which are completely useless for a toon, who’s already level 65.

      • guest

        Everything you open using the new pack opening thing goes into a legacy interface you can access from any toon on your legacy via the new CM icon.

  • Weapon Tuning slots have been added to Level 50 Operation and PvP weapons.

    -Which PvP weapons ? Rewards from seasons arent tunin’able.

    Color Crystals can now be previewed without first previewing a weapon.

    -not true

      Operating words: level 50.

    Doesn’t work

    Today , 08:34 AM | #2 This is the last staff post in this thread.

    Hey folks,

    We are going to be having a brief downtime to address two issues:

    We believe we have a fix for characters stuck with a version error.

    To add Early Access to those players who were missed the grant yesterday.

    The plan is for maintenance to take an hour and we are going to start/end it as soon as possible!

    -eric

    • Adamant

      The brief downtime has just been extended. It’s funny how the early access that was supposed to be earlier than early again becomes later than late…

      • Michael

        Late early access is the only garunteed early access.

        Choices matter

  • Secundum

    “The Dark vs. Light: Flashpoint Master Achievement is now a requirement for completing the Dark vs. Light: Legend Achievement as intended.”
    SO glad I made sure to do most of this. Only Black Talon to go now. =)

    • Darth-Robin

      be sure to give it all you can on last boss she has a nasty short enrage timer.

      • Secundum

        I’ve done every HM FP at least 10 times-I just need to redo it on a new DvL toon.

    • Be glad you didn’t do all of it, as usual people who cleared it quickly get punished by bugs. I did all the HMs weeks ago, meaning I’ll probably be wating for a bug fix for a month now before I actually get Legendary.

      • Zed

        Well… I have everything needed for legend including the flashpoints
        one and eternal tier, but heh, for legendary i still have to… do the
        flashpoints ? wtf ?
        Sent a ticket, got a droid answer like “it’s an ingame bug that will be fixed in a later patch”… Oh dear, i’m so glad, i was expecting it to be fixed in a -previous- patch *cough*
        Haha, guess i’m back to grinding. Or maybe not. Cause i don’t know which one it is (10 credits bet on Manaan ? ^^)
