  • Hawke

    Class stories fixed, that’s good news, as well as the Colossus droid. The sorcerer fix is nice too.

  • Shadowofdeath

    Don’t get me wrong, bug fixes are always nice. Just wondering when they’re gonna do class balance, haven’t had any since 5.0 dropped 6 months ago

    • there’s been small changes, but nothing in the patch notes
      BW is completely silent on those

      • Shadowofdeath

        yeah, most of the ‘small changes’ were pretty glossed over, like taking AOE dr away from assassins utilities and fixing game breaking issues like the broken sin and merc reflect.

        Not much anywhere else though

        • (Merc reflect wasn’t changed, operative was)
          but yeah, ‘normal’ class balance is rly lacking right now, the only balancing was nerfing sin tanks

  • Mer Vila

    No companions fix?

  • Hydden

    Ctrl+F Mercenary/Commando…..
    Close tab…

  • Ben Gimson

    “The Tusken Partition Stronghold Decoration is now set to a decoration hook, instead of a floor covering hook.”

    Only bit that I care about^ :’)

  • Havik79

    When are they actually going to make Iokath dailies worth doing.

    • abaddonsmummy

      I think they have.
      I have done the dailys/weekly a few times and although some are quite good the ones requiring the Iokath shards were ridiculously overpriced requiring a silly amount of grinding to get the shards, and even if you got them you could easily get killed in either of the mouse or monitor forms by an adds group meaning all the shards were wasted (i know there was a boost to buy for the missions but that meant more shards to grind).
      Looking at the patch notes here I was expecting to see a reduction in the shards required however instead the have done this –
      “New item: Legendary Iokath Shard Cluster – This consumable is dropped from some Daily Missions on Iokath. This Shard Cluster is Bind on Pickup and will award more Shards than the Artifact Iokath Shard Cluster.”
      And –
      “Iokath Daily Missions have had their Command Experience (CXP) rewards increased and they will also now reward consumable CXP Packs.
      Iokath Sentinel, Walker, and Mouse Droid Daily Missions have had a Credit Boom or Credit Explosion and Iokath Shard Clusters added to their Mission rewards.”
      All in all with the increase in shards rewarded and the increase in cxp and credits from the missions this looks like a more balanced area.
      Now to add them to conquest….. 🙂

      • Havik79

        What do you get for all that grinding, boosts for dailies, an armour set, a mount and a mini pet, the reputation vendor is worse than frigging voss.

        • abaddonsmummy

          Then it’s the same as all dailies.
          Money, reputation (for the gear and speeder) and cxp.

          • Havik79

            No the others have several things, in the case of gree legacy gear, this has 3 things, and all 3 are crap.

            • abaddonsmummy

              If your in it for the gear, and or a speeder and you don’t like them then it’s not for you, and it’s doubtful they will add any other reputation items.
              I personally love the imperial set of Reputation gear and apart from the chest and boots the Republic uniform is pretty boring, and the speeders a bit ‘meh’.
              However with the cash and cxp being tweeked and hopefully conquest soon makes it worthwhile for those that are looking for the usual daily’s experience.

              • John Kosto

                See how you can actually make accurate posts when you’re not in that white knight trap where you need to defend everything about SWTOR? 😛

              • abaddonsmummy

                Such a shame you don’t read all my posts then, then you would see I don’t always ‘white knight’.
                Pigeonholing is a shame, especially when not true.

            • thegoalie79

              Then don’t do them, you dont have to do everything in the game. Why are you bitching about it? Obviously some people enjoy doing them and find them worth while.

              • Eban

                people are starved of content so yes they would like to do them or have something to grind thats worthwhile

              • thegoalie79

                Again NOT all content is going to be for everyone. Its amazing how you guys think BW should call you personally and ask what you want in the game. Well buddy that is not how the world works. I see tons of people out doing the dailies so too bad for you and the others that dont feel like this content is worthwhile.

              • Eban

                Man your on a mad ranting mission today aren’t you.
                What you say is true about not all content is for everyone but if they actually released diverse content for all types of players instead everyone gets crumbs then the feedback will continue to be bad.
                And there’s little to argue about the daily vendors suck btw.

              • thegoalie79

                No the feedback will continue to be bad because kids on the internet want their upvotes so they come to every forum of a video game and complain. Its like they need to feel included in something in their life. Its not just swtor its every video game these days. I am not mad just posting facts that the complainers dont like so they all get huffy and puffy.

              • Eban

                To be fair mate your the one that sounds huffy and puffy and the complaints are all valid points thats why they tend to be met with angry rants rather than discussion.

              • thegoalie79

                No angry rants here I am just posting facts. And no they are not all valid. Above someone is crying it takes him 15 SECONDS (in reality its 5) to pull out a companion every now and then. He is acting like this is some game breaking bug. Sorry that is not a valid complaint I could go through almost every post and explain how they are not valid.

              • Eban

                He is complaining about something thats not working as intended so it is in actual fact a valid complaint, its irrelevant if its 5 sec or 50 sec its not working correctly.
                I imagine theres issues in game that you find annoying but others will deem trivial.
                You seem to be on the war path of going against anyone here that has any level of gripe with Bioware like they haven’t earn the negativity.

              • John Kosto

                Actually… since we are paying customers, yes, it would be perfect if Bioware could listen to the players and add content that they want, instead of adding things which you claim are “not for everyone” but a better description for what’s happening since late 2014 would be “content that has driven most players away”.

                Welcome back Diehard Fan.

      • John Kosto

        Many of the Iokath daily missions are fun, but many are also so boring that I did them once for the achievement and I will never do them again. For example the binoculars mission and the mouse droid mission.

        It’s nice of them to offer more incentive to do these mission (increase in CXP and shards rewards) but the stuff you can buy with these shards are still not that great.

  • Xalty Xalt

    “Tyth now drops crafting materials.” Any guess which???

    • Dr. Mike Wendell

      Desh and Silica? 🙂

      • Reaper

        lol

    • Reaper

      probably VMC and isotope

    • John Kosto

      With that note, I have a question about 246 schematics. Are they only attainable from NiM ops? Because I have opened a few PvP weekly crates with my two Tier 4 toons, and they still drop 240s….

  • Zaniel

    still waiting for the Zakuul stronghold to be released…

  • Jep Fareborn

    No mention of Gear Preview Window fix… lol How long must we wait for this standard feature to be corrected?!?

    • abaddonsmummy

      It got slightly better for about a week and now it’s back to emptiness.
      But at least we got the weapon preview back, thank heaven for small mercies 🙂

    • df0:

      I lost all hope this will ever be fxed.

      It’s broken for years, if I remember correctly. And the last patch, despite the fact the preview wasn’t even remotely touched by the patch, made it even worse (now showing a zoomed in view of the characters/companions feet sometimes).

    • Drivan

      Longer, much, much longer.

  • Pendric Nascor

    TL;DR: None of the 1-5 year old major bugs was fixed.

    • Dr. Mike Wendell

      Of course not.

      I hate not having a real science fiction based MMO that actually believes in 1) what they’re doing and 2) customer service.

    • thegoalie79

      It really gets old you guys still are crying about 5 year old items. Listen you can rehash all the five, six year old talking points every time they do a patch. Its not going to help your crusade to take down swtor. You failed move on, seeing the same people on here every patch complaining is pretty pathetic.

      • abaddonsmummy

        Tbh apart from a few Qol bugs, and a gf system that needs a bit of tweeking, the day to day play is rarely disrupted by anything major leaving it still a great game to play.
        Nothing stops me from HM’s, gf sm ops, FP’s, uprisings, heroics and conquest.

      • lel

        Yeah, but your white knight brown nosing will help to improve the game. If there is something going wrong: SAY IT! If you stay silent the world doesn’t change.

        • thegoalie79

          Its not brown nosing calling out asshats using 5 year old talking points who are desperately trying bash a video game. Its also just as sad having White Knights trying to protect them like you are doing.

          • lel

            Learn to read.

            It’s about many bugs, ONE to FIVE years old, that have never been fixed. Major bugs. This crew only fixes the most recent fuckups they made.

            • thegoalie79

              Please list the “major bugs” that have impacted you lately that have been in the game for FIVE YEARS. I will wait…

      • John Kosto

        Nice delusions. No one is trying to take down SWTOR, and there is definitely not a crusade happening. The fact that there are 5 year old bugs still not fixed is just pathetic.

        • thegoalie79

          I find it more pathetic people like you are still crying about 5 year old talking points.

          • John Kosto

            The joke’s on you, because I have literally never complained about any 5 year old bugs. My gaming experience is only ruined by the lack of content, a boring and not fun storyline (KOTFE/KOTET) with zero replay value, and of course, people who pretend the game is good.

            • thegoalie79

              No the joke is on some dumb ass crying about a video game he doesn’t like or enjoy. Grow up and go find something you enjoy. Is your life that miserable you need to complain about a video game on the internet? Really that is where you are in life?

              Clearly a lot of people do enjoy the game, find value and don’t have an issue with the content. Oh but everyone is supposed to be a loser and cry like you? Yeah go polish your participation trophies little buddy.

              • John Kosto

                Haha you’re a funny little troll. Where I am in life is that I have a job that gives me a lot of free time while paying for my bills, and it’s also a job that I like. I also have a few dear friends that I love and they love me, my family is all safe and sound, my sister will give birth to my 2nd nephew very soon, and on top of that I am dating the hottest and most kind girl I have dated so far. Does that answer your question? I hope it does.

              • thegoalie79

                Really and you still find time to cry about video game you don’t enjoy, find boring and has zero value? Well I recommend you do what most 7 year old can do when they lose interest in something…go find something else.

              • John Kosto

                Yeah I find the time because guys like you make it more interesting and more fun. So thank you for being that hurt about someone saying mildly negative things about your precious game. It’s really entertaining to see someone care so much about something that is not even theirs. Unless you are a Bioware employee….

                Btw don’t twist my words. I find the latest storyline boring and with zero REPLAY value. That doesn’t mean I don’t love parts of the game, or raiding with my friends. You really are a piece.

              • André Tierling

                Easy guys, calm down. Everyone that plays SWTOR know that this game has potential to become better, its no problem to admit that. We have lack of end game content, the game is becoming unpopulated, and I dont see anything being that really changes that in new patchs. Love SWTOR, but even love need to be feed or it dies. <3

    • How do you know if you didn’t read?

      • John Kosto

        Doesn’t really matter though since he’s correct.

        • You know that, and I know that, but how does he know that 🙂

          • John Kosto

            Well I think the point of his post was that you don’t even need to read the notes anymore to know that they won’t be fixing these bugs….

      • Ölk

        You really need to read something to know something that is obvious?

        It’s like reading about the sun rising every morning.

  • Dr. Mike Wendell
    • EyesOfGehenna .

      Dunno, but the facebook page has a 4.3 rating from 23 reviews…that means nothing.

      • Amodin

        That’s probably everyone at Bioware Austin.

      • HMHero

        google only has 16 reviews

    • Whitedragon
    • Robert René Dibello

      Its part of the hiring process… Sell your sole to EA, get working on the cartel market and give them a good rating!

      • Dr. Mike Wendell

        Must be since many of those reviewers are former BioWare employees. I only see one current one and that’s Eric.

        • David Daniels

          Eric needs to get fired who already destroyed this game.

          • Darth Ji’inx

            How would firing Eric, who’s not a dev, fix the game?

      • John Kosto

        EA collects shoes?

    • Getting to BW Austin’s headquarters is easy, so a 4.4/5 is probably fair. If only it was easy to get out of BWA, especially if you happen to be New Content 😀

      • Drivan

        This literally made me Lol!

    • dfsdf

      They pay some company for positive reviews and followers in social media. Like most awful companies do.

    • Naq

      Thats the star rating for the cafeteria.

  • Havik79

    I Hope that is a typo and it is also 2x cxp.

  • How about you fix the stupid new companion bug, where anytime you come out of a queue (raids, PVP, flashpoints, uprisings) your companions get tucked and your companion window is gone. So you have to manually pull out a different companion, close the window, and then pull out the one you want. EVERY TIME!!!!! Before it was annoying your companions would keep popping out after you tried to tuck them. Now you have to manually spend 10-15 seconds getting them to come out. WTF…..

    • Emon McCullen

      Hm, this happened to me a few times but I never even realized it until I read this here. And when happened, I’d just press the shortkey for the companions window (“[” in my case) and click the summon button. Easy peasy.

      • Mer Vila

        Sometimes that work, sometimes (most times) it doesnt.

    • d+f0666666666

      They don’t know what they are doing. They pray every day that SWTOR wont crash beyond repair. But if it does, this crew is totally helpless. Most patches break more things than they fix. And BioWare still refuses to lay off this crew and employ some people who know what they are doing.

      • Travelering_swordsman

        well this game will die off just like Galaxys did. and Biofail will apparently suffer for it.

    • thegoalie79

      Dude really stretching to make something to complain about. I can pull up a companion in under 5 sec. The desperation is strong in you.

      • keyb°rdbrokjn

        Hello Mr. White Night.

        It’s broken! It doesn’t matter if it just takes under 5 sec. It’s broken!

        • thegoalie79

          No broken would be you cant summon a companion. Sure it may be “broken” for desperate kids like you looking for something to complain about so they get their upvotes…good luck with that.

          • HMHero

            5 seconds? No, you have to repeatedly summon a different companion than the one you want, dismiss them, close the comp window, reopen the window, then finally summon the comp you want, it’s broken.

          • Hoss Musk

            It doesn’t work like it did before, it doesn’t work how it’s intended to work.

            It’s broken.

            To hard for you to understand a simple fact like that?
            I feel bad for your boss and your colleagues, working with somebody like you must be a real pain.

            • thegoalie79

              Yeah coming from some asshat crying on a video game forum about something that takes 5 seconds to fix. You clearly have enough issues going on in your own life. So a bit of advice you might want to get your own life straightened out before you attempt and fail and judging others.

              • Drivan

                Wow, you are an asshole.
                The tone, content and writing style remind me of someone else on these forums who is notorious for having many alternate accounts…

              • Eban

                come tomorrow he’ll come online and say it was all an experiment again lmao

      • You clearly don’t understand the bug….

        • thegoalie79

          You clearly are a pathetic loser who got banned from the swtor official forum and now hold some creepy, sick, awkward drudge against the CM. Now you spam any mention of swtor on the interweb because of it. Yeah its takes 5 seconds to fix the issue and determine what type of person you are.

      • Danny Seth

        The thing is after you do the Iokath turret instance mission for example, your companion window is gone. And you have to go to menu – Companions & contacts – after it loads, choose your favorite companion (mine is Shae Viszla, and I have almost all companions minus Broonmark, who I accidentally killed and Pierce, cuz he’s imperial) and It takes around half a minute to scroll down and get it out, and when doing this repeatedly, it gives reason for complain. Other companion bugs may include having to buff them in almost every fight since there’s a ton of reasons they lose their buffs, like riding a mount, taking an elevator, entering an instance etc.

    • Xandryah

      exactly ^^
      i agree …

    • Drivan

      They don’t know how to fix the bugs that they keep introducing.
      For example, about 2 years ago they introduced a bug into the item preview feature. Randomly the preview will just remove your character and turn the things you were looking at to greyscale or invisible. It was supposed to be fixed a LONG time ago, but after they told the community they knew of the bug and were working on it they never mentioned it again.

      Fast Forward to last night, I am previewing items for my new Jedi Knight because I just can’t stand the default gear that I’l picking up and sure as shit, every 45 seconds or so I have to close the window and start my preview all over…
      It makes playing barbie dress up so difficult… lol!

      But that is just 1 of about a million bugs that they just can’t fix.
      Companions have had quirky bugs since the beginning. Like how they won’t enter/exit some instances with you so you have to dismiss them and then recall them before a fight and when you leave. Clipping issues, the fact that they sometimes appear in the floor of your stronghold when you log in, their targeting is off, they use abilities that you have turned off, don’t use abilities that you turn on and often ignore the fact that you put them in tank spec and heal you, even when you are the healer… 🙁
      EA/BW/SWTOR has a bad rap for not addressing bugs and glitches unless it causes an exploit that people become vocal about.

    • Darth Twinge

      Oh, good. I thought it was just Elara continuously attempting to escape….
      XD

  • WTF!

    The maximum number of Galactic Alliance Statue decorations has been increased to 10, up from 1.
    WTF are they doing!?

    From the patchnotes Game Update 5.1: Defend the Throne:
    The limit on Galactic Alliance Statues has been increased to 50 (up from 1).

    Why was it down to 1? And why isn’t it increased to 50, like it was before? WTF!

    • Nomad

      Why would you even want 50 of those?

      • WTF!

        Doesn’t matter.
        5.1 promised 50.

        Then a bug decresed it to 1, 50 have been possible till this happened.
        So it should be 50, no matter if anybody needs it or not.

  • DIE
  • Yallida

    When servers will up?

    • BugWhale
      • Drivan

        Oh SWTOR, breaking bore than you fix with every patch and maintenance cycle…
        It never fails.

        • Mer Vila

          it´s a feaaaaaaaaaaaatuuuure duuuuude.

          • Drivan

            Ah yes, those hidden features!
            I love their suprise features!

            “Surprise! You’re gonna love this month’s new feature. We broke our shit beyond repair and our only full backup is from the 2.5 release… Trying to get back as much as we can, repairs are coming in July with, what we will be calling, patch 2.5beta2…”

            • HMHero

              2.5 would be the shit

              Wouldnt it be awesome if the game launches and the screen displays Rise of the Hutt Cartel poster LOL

    Everyone that plays SWTOR know that this game has potential to become better, its no problem to admit that. We have lack of end game content, the game is becoming unpopulated, and I dont see anything being that really changes that in new patchs. Love SWTOR, but even love need to be feed or it dies. <3

    • thegoalie79

      You do know it wasnt good the first time you posted it and its not any better the second time.

      • André Tierling

        thegoalie79, your opinion is apreciated, love you man <3

        • thegoalie79

          In this case you are correct that was just my opinion.

          • André Tierling

            <3

    • Darth Lattice

      But they gave us boring pathetic quests on Iokath. This will save the game!

      • André Tierling

        YEY! and we have cosmetic change on galaxy map and UI <3 I want to play it like never before!

  • André Tierling

    In fact, the game will not die anytime soon, simply because it is SW. A lot of people play for RP, a lot of people play for PVP and do not mind just playing this, do not care if we have new content or not, because it’s SW. I would particularly like to see new content for the end of the game, as indeed new group activities by the planets, such as the possibility of defending map territory with guild, group or factions (if any). Today we see people walking to and fro on the map with absolutely nothing to do … we need a continuous content for end game, not just a mission that can be done in an hour, and then return to ostrich. <3

    • Neomy

      This game is now alive because of “it’s Star Wars” for 5 years. The “it’s Star Wars” stuff will be depleted some day. And 5 years is a long time of using “it’s Star Wars”. It may be out of stock soon.

      • André Tierling

        I agree Neomy. The sad part is that our love to SW is being used, not respected. I play the game today because I love my friends in there, but… more and more of my friends are leaving the game, and I feel that soon I can leave too

    I’ve never played WoW. A friend wants me to try WoW (we both started playing SWTOR together, he is no longer playing SWTOR, but I do since release).

    Right now, I’m installing WoW!
    I’ve got enough of this BioWare/EA shit…

    • HMHero

      Good luck! (elves are gross)

    • I usually play with Wildstar anytime BW is shitting the bed with SWTOR. It’s fun for 2-3 hour spurts, but no more than that.

  • Yallida

    This is becoming really annoying… ALMOST every single one maintenance they must screw something up… I hope they at least won’t count this day to subscription time…

    • Mer Vila

        And now you have just crushed my dreams Mr 😉

    • Drivan

      You can bet your ass they will. As long as they get the servers up before they would be leaving for the day you will still have a day subtracted from your subscription time…

    • thegoalie79

      Are you people really this ignorant? Or does your blind hatred towards a VIDEO GAME just make you appear this way. Almost every MMORPG ever created has had issues during patches. This is not a swtor things. What is amazing you idiots talk how much you hate the game and now you life is ruined because you cant play it for 6 hours in one day. Step outside for a bit buddy.

      • Yallida

          • Yallida

            Facts you say… Well the fact is that siebce 4.0 every maintenance is f*ck up by them… Dude even in 3.0 there wasn’t such things so pls care to watch what you say….

      • Drivan

        Please take a deep breath and rather than act all salty and rude over a comment that someone made about a VIDEO GAME take a moment to realize that the comment you just made makes you part of the problem that you are trying to point out to others.

        Also this IS a SWTOR thing. In the past 8 years I have played 9 different MMO’s SWTOR has had far more serious issues such as server crashes, log in server crashes etc than any of those 9 MMO’s.

        Oh, and calling people idiots isn’t going to help your cause, it wil make people angry and they will just respond to you in the exact manner in which you are talking to them.
        You seem to be the kind of person that could get triggered easily, so fair warning, you are starting a forest fire with your behavior.

        • thegoalie79

          I have no cause. Video game forums have gone down hill over the years because of people like you and others on this site. There is no fixing them your kind has destroyed any credibility they once had. There is a reason why 99% of gamers never step foot in forums and its because of you guys, not me. Those are the facts.

  • Just to note for all the funboys that were defending biofail when we were screaming about the push back of the last patch, HERE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHY WE RAGE!!!! We get one tweet that says “Maintenance is going to last an extra hour”, then an hour later one tweet that says “We are investigating a login issue”, and now 2+ hours of nothing while the game is down. How hard is it to f’ing communicate? This kind of little dumb shit that they do EVERY TIME to show they don’t care about their player base is why we all light the torches and storm the castle IMMEDIATELY when there is a real big mistake. Or to put it visually….

    • Drivan

      Yep.
      Then again the fanboi’s you are directing this comment to will never understand. To them this is just part of being a SWTOR fan. This is just something that happens and Oh well, we need to give BW time to fix it. In the meantime go pay for another 12 month subscription, buy $1000 worth of cartel coins and create 2 or 3 more subscribed accounts so that you can show you are a faithful supporter of the game.

    • 2 mins after I post this, they reply. Glad to know they are reading this comments instead of doing work….

        • Musco is that you? Keep sticking up for bioflop “The Goalie”. Damn, and here I was thinking you were just defending your virginity this whole time 😀

          • thegoalie79

            Oh poor little buddy did you get kicked out of the forums and you cant move on with your worthless life? Oh your tears are so precious.

              • thegoalie79

                Oh no little buddy I am posting facts you are the losers whining on this site cause you are such a loser you cant booted from the official forums.

              • I’ve posted more times on the SWTOR forums in the last hour then on this site dipshit, lmao. Nice try though. Nobody cares about the SWTOR forums though. It must be weird nearing 40 years old though (’79 makes you 37-38) and trying to use internet tween words like TRIGGERED. But the all Caps totally makes it cool bro, keep it up 🙂

              • thegoalie79

                Oh I am just educating millennials like you. See I am actually at work not sitting in my moms basement polishing my participation trophies like you clearly are doing during the downtime.

              • Drivan

                You do realize that Elara and Kira can’t actually pleasure you just because you press your junk against the screen right?
                Seriously, you should back away from the keyboard, go down to the local bar, have a few drinks, loosen up and maybe talk to a girl.
                That would do you a WORLD of good.

              • thegoalie79

                Oh its too fun watching the kids get triggered. Plus at work so cant go to the local bar.

              • So to be clear from the last 15 minutes of you having more Rage then Tyth in HM, does this sum up everything:

                1) I’m a millennial
                2) I have participation trophies
                3) I polish them
                4) I’m in my Mom’s basement
                5) I don’t have a job
                6) I’m Triggered
                7) I changed my name to this from something else
                8) I’m banned from the SWTOR forums
                9) I’m weird creepy and sick
                10) I’m an asshat

                While I am literally none of those things in actuality, I could just as easily be all those things. That’s kind of the point here champ. I am an anonymous person on the internet you didn’t know existed until 20 minutes ago, but you have already had no problem going 0 to 100 and jumped to a hundred conclusions based on absolutely nothing of fact that I’ve said, because all I’ve actually said is that Bioware is doing a bad job and I’m an unhappy consumer. If that isn’t the definition of TRIGGERED, I don’t know what is. But keeping doing this, its good for your blood pressure i’m sure. Also you are now blocked, so be furious alone 🙂

      I’ll be honest, every time they have to shut the servers down I wait for the day that the game won’t reboot.

      Well or you are new to this game or is must be something wrong with you…
      Last 2 years is really “maintenance nightmare” because they screwing something almost everytime on maintenance…
      Dude really go sleep

      • thegoalie79

        Been playing on and off since launch…plus other mmos and guess what little buddy they all have issues every now and again. If you are not emotionally and mentally stable enough to able to handle a little break from a VIDEO GAME maybe its time you stop playing them and get some help.

        • Swelke

          It’s not “every now and again” with this game, though. I’ve never seen this kind of bullshit happen in any other MMO, at least definitely not this often.

          And, at this point, it’s frankly ridiculous. You’d think they’d have their shit sorted by now, and know how to address these issues.

          • thegoalie79

            During WoW Legion the fist week queues on some servers were maybe an hour. 4 weeks later they were having issues and queues went up to over 4 hours on some servers. This went of for a couple weeks. So maybe step outside of these forums.

            • Swelke

              1. But that’s -fairly- normal when an expansion releases (especially in a bigger MMO like WoW), I’ve experienced those things before. In SWTOR, it’s always about the bugs and other issues. Like, pretty much everytime they release a patch, even a minor one.

              2. Ah, the condescension. Serves me right for going from reading to posting and getting into the mess.

      • abaddonsmummy

        I don’t honestly remember any “maintenance nightmare” for the last 2 years.
        I’ve been playing for 5 years and and apart from a few delayed patches I don’t remember this at all.

        • Yallida

          And you also don’t remember that most of maintenances have extended time I presume?

          • abaddonsmummy

            Now and again but I wouldn’t use the phrase 2 years of nightmare maintenance.
            An hour or two maybe now and again.

            • Yallida

              Ok maybe I rounded this to much but still that doesn’t change fact that since 4.0 maintenances leaves very much to wish…

              • abaddonsmummy

                I can agree with you on that one.
                I think the bigger issue is the amount of problems they seem to have incurred.
                A bitraider issue AND a Datacentre issue AND backend services issue?
                I’m not sure if thy’re just being brutally honest for once (which is ok I think we’d all rather have that) and this can normally happen or somethings gone badly wrong which they didn’t expect which is concerning to us players.

              • Yallida

                I believe that if they would be honest since middle of 4.0 and admit that they have technical issues today players would be more emollient than now.

        Unfortunately unofficial forums like these attract the worst elements of gaming.
        Some here are just here to flame and wind up people as you have seen from their posts, if they’re here to be abusive just ignore, let them post their repetitive boring memes and sick comments, they’re here for the attention and upvotes not the game.
        Some however have genuine concerns and will engage in good debate as they are concerned about the game and it’s future.
        Time on here will show you that, don’t be put off by the trolls, on here it’s one rule for them and one rule for the others, they are here to spoil not engage.
        Remember it’s always your fault for enjoying the game in their eyes and you will be held responsible for every aspect of the game, even the parts you see fault in.
        Don’t be put off, that’s what they want.

            So I reminded him that he will become like you and your friends and be judged so.
            I am honest.
            You…………..

            • Drivan

              Uh you obviously didn’t read everything he posted, like this one,

              “Haha the amount of little asshats i triggered here today is priceless. Well you all enjoy hanging out in your little circle jerk safe space crying about a video game, my work here is done. Its amazing how sad you guys are. Off to go play the mmo called real life maybe some day you guys will grow up enough to try that one out. Some of you I highly doubt it. See you in game!”

              Pretty obvious that he was only here to piss people off. And considering he was posting every couple of seconds with random inflammatory garbage with comments intended to make people angry. The dude deserved every rude comment he received.
              You sure do view the world through some really twisted lenses…

              Given your history I’m not surprised you are coming to his defence. This guy jumps on with the intent of making people mad, goes all machine gun Kelly on the thread and you take his side and jump to his defence.
              Then again he is probably your next soul mate now that Diehard has been Banned.

              • abaddonsmummy

                No I read it all , he was having a rant like all the other haters and trolls do here daily, the ones you keep telling me have a voice, and shouldn’t be trolled back.
                I didn’t upvote his comments as he got nastier, instead I told him how he looked.
                But I saw all your guys comments as they got nastier too. Sad to see.
                But as usual one rule for one group etc etc.
                Always interesting to see the shoe on the other foot is it not?

              • HMHero

                You try to sound so above it all and better than but you are deep in it and the same as.

              • abaddonsmummy

                I could have easily deleted or edited my post, but that’s not me, I stand by my comments, but I can also learn from them.
                I saw his first comment and greed with it, people were jumping on the hate bandwagon because the patch was held up.
                I talked about unofficial forums and what they can be like.
                Based on what I read I’m happy with my response.
                I saw he was being pulled up for that so I said don’t be despondent this forum is like that, one rule for one group etc etc.
                Then I scrolled down and saw him fighting with the usual forums trolls and told him he will be judged as they are if he adopts their attitude and language.
                I’m also happy with that comment
                It’s typical of this forum to make someone else responsible for someones comments and when it suits them, shall I bring Musco sucks or rance’s behaviour to your door when they post disgusting comments because you talk to them?
                That’s rocky ground there my friend.

              • HMHero

                The same as.

              • abaddonsmummy

                As you are the same as Rance and his ilk.

              • HMHero

                You don’t get it.

                You are the same as them too.

              • abaddonsmummy

                Who is ‘them’ man?
                There are a lot of them’s on here.

              • Drivan

                Just because you take the opposite stance doesn’t make you different. You are the same as all of us you criticize.
                The difference is I embrace that fact that I’m an asshole toward you, you try to pretend you are saintly…

              • Drivan

                The comment you posted on wasn’t actually his first post, it was one of his middle posts when he was trying to pull it together and make himself look good. Then he just went hog wild.
                But go ahead and defend yet another guy that just wants to be a dick for the sake of being a dick.

              • HMHero

                the post times are there for everyone to read

              • abaddonsmummy

                It was the first post I came across, my comments never hid that or said otherwise.
                I’ll leave you to your ahem *better* friends.

              • Drivan

                You are an idiot.

              • Drivan

                Your selective memory is showing again.
                You brought this behavior here, you started “trolling the trolls” with rude and inappropriate behavior. Then Diehard came along and the 2 of you were like peas and carrots.
                Now he has been banned, all traces of him have been deleted from the forums and here you are trying to find another jerk to pal around with.

                Unfortunately for you it appears as though this dude isn’t even a gamer and his purpose was to come on here and make fun of video gamers. The Jock bully, came over to the geek table to pour milk on our heads and eat our cheeseburgers because he thinks our fandom makes us weak.

                That is the kind of person this guy is. And here you are defending him and trying to be buddies with him. Like his little sidekick…

              • abaddonsmummy

                Oh so trolling the trolls is now allowed now?
                Strange how it was the worst type of behaviour before as you kept telling me.
                That’s good to know, but why did you change your mind?
                Because it suits you of course.
                And no-one knows if Diehard was banned that’s an assumption, just like my assumption you bullied him enough that made him ill and forced him to leave.
                Assumptions are interesting are they not?
                If this guy is a jock bully he will fit in well here with the rest of you, just on the other side of the fence for a change.
                Jock bully’s whether it’s him or you will be here for evermore, and as for defending, how is your sidekick Musco sucks doing?

              • Drivan

                Your method is the worst type of behavior, and that has ALWAYS been my point. You never get that, you never understand because you chose not to. You do whatever it take to make yourself look good these days, but when you first got here you were a rude, obnoxious kid, pretending that he is king shit. Now you are trying this zen master, I’m better than you approach.
                At least I’m still me…
                Funny you say he will fit in with us when we were the ones he was ranting on and you are the one that jumped to his side and is currently defending him…
                Musco speaks his mind and doesn’t hid behind inference, sarcasm, passive aggressive jabs and cowardly veiled insults.
                He has the balls to be blunt.

              • abaddonsmummy

                Blunt?
                You mean disgusting, vile and rude.
                That’s what your promoting here, and you know it, and you’ve seen it.
                I commented on one post from a a new poster that I agreed with, not the rest of his diatribe.
                If you thinks that makes you better you run with that man.
                Goodbye.
                P.s I’m not even going to bother replying to the post where you call me a name.

              • Drivan

                Yes I am blunt
                I have called you different variations of a jerk or asshole. Calling you an asshole, asshat, jerk etc is rude, yep you are right.
                You earn those titles fair and square. I freely admit that I am rude to you and treat you in the same manner that you treat others. I have admitted this time and time again. It’s no secrete and I don’t hide it.

                If you can’t handle being addressed by the title you have earned perhaps you should change your behavior?

                P.S.
                OOooooooo a name…. I might has well have dropped a nuke on the last living Panda bear…
                Sticks and stones bro, grow some thicker skin or change your behavior.

              • abaddonsmummy

                If that’s a reason to excuse you and your friends behaviour, good luck with that.
                Your going to need it.

              • Drivan

                Well lets see, we react to you the way a person unafraid to stand up to an asshole does where as you are the asshole.
                Ever notice how you treat many, many, many people in this community like crap and a great deal of us treat you the same in return. Have you also noticed that all of this douchy behavior really only revolves around you?
                Sure we criticize a video game, but that is an inanimate thing with no feelings, emotions or even consciousness.
                You act like an asshole defending a video game like you are defending your sister’s virtue, the problem is everyone has had a turn on this merry-go-round and the experience isn’t all that great anymore…

              • Drivan

                I’m not asking to be excused. I don’t even care what people think, I give a shit less about what you think.
                You however are being a pretentious, uppity prick that acts like he is better than everyone else simply because he has a more positive opinion of a game that is slowly slithering down the crapper.
                The bottom line is, you are an asshole who wants to be seen as a great person whilst continuing to act like an asshole.

              • abaddonsmummy

                Aaaaaand that’s the Drivan we all know, abusive and aggressive.
                The exact thing you crucify others for on here.
                What was the phrase you used?
                Oh yes ‘jock bully’
                Another thing that is only allowed when you do it.
                I’ll leave the last insult to you man.
                Until the next time. 😛

              • Drivan

                It is difficult for you to refute the truth isn’t it?

                Unlike you I never hide who I am, which is blunt truuthful and honest. You take it as abusive because you can’t cope with others recognizing and pointing out your true nature.
                BTW pointing out the poor actions is not bullying, it’s an on the spot correction. Then again I can’t expect one with your degree of double standards to know the true difference there.

        • John Kosto

          Did you seriously just stick up for that disgusting user? Seriously? Trying to justify another horrible behavior from a horrible human (or just a troll probably) just because they were also defending the game? Your credibility is getting worse all the time… You make me regret anything positive that I might have said about the times you appear to make sense…

          The edit on your post doesn’t really help you this time.

          • abaddonsmummy

            Good old biased john again, seeing life form one side of the fence.
            You should really take a step back and look at the forum, just once, I think you’d be surprised.
            Oh and you missed out ‘fanboi’, that’s your level these day.

            • HMHero

              You have zero perspective, you are the same as your view of John, no better. Head your own advise before giving it.

              • abaddonsmummy

                As should you, I’ve seen your comments and upvotes.

              • HMHero

                I know I’m no different and don’t spend my time trying to convince others I’m not.

              • abaddonsmummy

                Man if I chose not to be aggressive, abusive and confrontational that’s my choice and no-one not you or your gang is going to change the person I am.
                Does that make me perfect?
                He’ll no, remember I’m still the resident blind fanboi around here.
                I see the game as I see it, I hate no-one, when you get to my age life’s too short for that nonsense, all I can do is say it as I see it.
                You’ll notice most of my observations are with the caveat imho, that means as I see it.
                Posters can take me up on it or not, or judge me by it, that’s forum life.
                You and your lot try to paint me out as some saint because of my views, that’s your choice not mine.

              • HMHero

                You are aggressive and confrontational though, you have been both of those things in this thread, saying you are not doesn’t make it true.

            • John Kosto

              I don’t think you know the meaning of the word “biased” to be honest. You were just defending the worst person that has typed on this website since Diehard Fan used to be around. And you were defending THAT guy too, who was even worse. How do you do that? Do you feel happy with yourself after coming to the rescue of these zombies?

          • Drivan

            Yes, he was sticking up for and defending that asshole. He wants it to look like he wasn’t but once you read all of his posts and interactions it’s almost as if he idolizes the guy…

    • abaddonsmummy

      Hey I totally agree with your post, people do have completely different views on things and handle situations differently and raging about it has no effect other than upsetting yourself.
      That said these forums are full of angry, some positive but mainly negative.
      It is unusual to have a positive rager (our last one ahem…left), but we are still surrounded by negative ones.
      To clarify I don’t mean posters who come here with genuine issues on the game, bugs, lack on new content, the direction of the game and it’s future, I’m talking about posters who will jump on any issue (usually minor) and rage how the game is dead/dying, the bioware staff should die in a fire (yes a poster on here actually said that in a rant), and the same repetitive sad meme’s that offer nothing to the ongoing debate.
      I can see as a liker of the game (I have major issues with the game as I’ve said many times, but i’m classed as the resident fanboy) these trollers can cause a reaction in some posters (after all we are all emotionally attached to the game, if not why are we here), which causes people to get angry and have outbursts, just like in real life.
      After that long diatribe what I am trying to say is you are absolutely right in that if you don’t agree with someones opinion respond in a respectful way and argue your case in a mature way, however it can be hard with some trollers that won’t engage, who have different motives, and if you try to tackle them, you then get heckled off the forum. But if a positive troll appears…..well you can see the outcome on this thread.
      It seems sometimes that’s it’s one rule for one group etc etc…
      Both are wrong (as I’ve said to thegoalie79) and if you become the problem that your complaining about then it dilutes and even invalidates your argument.
      Sorry for having to read though all that, take care.

      • Drivan

        This is a funny turn for you.
        Just a couple months ago some of us posted that we disliked the direction the game was going and the quality of the content they were delivering.

        You, me and a half dozen others had an epic back and forth where you were heaping praise on BW, EA and SWTOR for all the great material they have produced the past 5 years and we should all just be patient because more is on the way… We all stated that we felt that 2 years was patient enough and your opinion was that we were just haters.

        Such a quick turn in so little time.
        Keep moving toward the light mummy, you’ll be free from naivety soon.

        • abaddonsmummy

          Never happened.
          This posts reflect my opinion sorry if that saddens you.
          Nice troll though.

          • Drivan

            Keep telling yourself that. We know your history around these parts…
            Did I mention being sad? Nope, I’m glad to hear that you are finally starting to peer around those rose colored glasses and join the rest of us. You don’t have much further to go.

  • thegoalie79

    Hey guys,

    I’m sorry for my behaviour here today. But my mom wouldn’t buy me a new smartphone, this made me angry.

    • André Tierling

      Now you’ve told a fact. I feel sorry for your mother … honestly.

      • thegoalie79

        In actuality, she’s the only woman that has ever even talked to me. The movie the 40 year old virgin is loosely based off my life, and it’s only loosely because he actually had friends and kissed a girl at the end….I’ve done none of those things ever 🙁

        • André Tierling

          After all, you’re sincere. Life is good, my friend. Do not die without living it 🙂

    • Fred Garvin

      She’s being responsible and didn’t buy you a new smartphone so she can get you better health insurance.

  • Alekero

    8+ hours and they finally broke it. Fck…and i paying sub since early access. For their “thank you for your patience, little idiot and give us more money”.

    • Uludag

      Yep. Once again I feel so good, supporting this failure of a dev studio, since early access, with my SWTOR subscription.

      Money well spend.
      🙁

      • thegoalie79

        Really one day of downtime and you go full retard? You guys really need a life.

        • Alekero

          I got a vacation started yesterday (omg! ppl workin, you should try it) so today i wanted to play coz im leavin to seaside tomorrow (omg i have a house there, i definitely need a life and mooore money). No offence retard kid, but your troll shit is failed) get a life :'(

  • thegoalie79

    Haha the amount of little asshats i triggered here today is priceless. Well you all enjoy hanging out in your little circle jerk safe space crying about a video game, my work here is done. Its amazing how sad you guys are. Off to go play the mmo called real life maybe some day you guys will grow up enough to try that one out. Some of you I highly doubt it. See you in game!

    • John Kosto

      It’s sad that you think you provided anything else than sheer entertainment to us. I literally laughed my ass off with how sensitive you are :’)

      • thegoalie79

        Says the SJW who took all of 5 seconds to reply I couldn’t even get my work computer shut down before you started crying again LOL. Trust me little buddy I was very entertained with all the tears you guys were shedding too.

    • Swelke

      Make sure you pump up your Intelligence and Charisma attributes before you give it a try!

    • André Tierling

      Sad, he says… ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Alekero

      sad that its just an internet hero and in real life just a nothing)

    • Yallida

      If you have any idea what “real life” is…
      I tell you another secret:
      In real life real people wake up, go to school or work and when evening comes they like to relax… Then they go sleep (what I hope that you will finally do)

    • XD

      Look. You may feel bully and strong, because you are young and a jerk. But all sane people aleady know that it’s you who needs a real life.

      Nobody fires that many stupid immature posts, who has a life.

  • wewill

    Whooohooo! Progress!

    I was able to login.

    Now watching a list of offline servers in the game client!
    Yeeeeeh!

      At lest now We Nerds can download patch 😉

      Bad situation but good communication.
      The last line edit is what we expect from you.

  • André Tierling

    We can understand and be patient, there is no problem in that … but if such a small patch is already so problematic for this team, I’m even afraid to ask for new content that I would really like to see in the game. EA, respect our love for SW and our money, please.

  • Formicula

    The day you realize why there are no server merges.
    The guys who have been able to run the servers are gone, long ago, to a company far far away from EA/BioWare.

    • André Tierling

      I think it is easier to happen a new pangea than to EA merge the servers 🙁

                It’s too coincidental that he always defends fanboi as if it was himself in any discussion, plus, he attacks the same people he attacks and using exactly the same tricks, too many evidences to not consider it, don’t let him fool you.

                I can only presume that the reference you make above is the assumption that the poster ‘thegoalie79’ is Diehard or indeed me.
                If you check ‘thegoalie79’s profile he has made 1378 with 2308 upvotes.
                This is clearly not diehard nor me, nor does he use the same slightly broken english that he did or the same language as me.
                Could it be possible that there is another poster that doesn’t like the trolls on here?
                Maybe more than one or even two?
                *gasps* in the whole world……surely not…..!
                The sad thing is you know it and your trolling as always.
                I could say your Shawny or Reactionary Monarchist or others, but to be honest I don’t really care. Your wasting your own time here looking the way you do, that’s bad enough.
                Oh and FYI replying to a comment isn’t an admission of guilt however much you dress it up in childish nonsense.
                Go on post the meme of the down syndrome child again, that’s about your level.

              • Rance

                Say all you want, you won’t fool me kiddo 😀

                Who exactly are the trolls? Because “thegoalie79” used offensive language and started to disagree and try to invalidate EVERYONE else on these discussions. Is everyone a troll except from you and him? Because I think that the opposite, is much more probable you know.

                There isn’t a person with half a brain that would find his posts not offensive and not horrible, but you went the extra mile and even upvoted him. Good for you. That’s your level.

              • abaddonsmummy

                You see you chose to ignore the bad language that constantly flows in the opposite direction, sad but true and a true reflection of your bias.
                If your just noticing horrible trolls on here you need to spend more time reading posts.
                There everywhere, but you chose not to see them.
                I wonder why?

              • John Kosto

                I see the trolls and I ignore them. EZPZ. You see the trolls and idolize them, as Drivan said very accurately.

              • abaddonsmummy

                Actually you ignore the negative trolls daily because it suits you and jump on the trolls that like the game.
                You friends on here are the negative trolls.
                That says it all.

              • HMHero

                I think you’ve moved the goal posts back to elementary school. Now you you don’t even know what a troll is?

                Everyone that posts here on the reg likes SWTOR, whether they like it’s current direction or not. A troll is not just someone that has a different opinion than you, a troll has to be here only to cause problems, everyone you call a ‘negative troll’ is here to discuss the game, opinions good bad and in the middle.

                You regularly defend people that come on here just to troll like you are their lawyer.

              • Drivan

                Agreed 100%

              • Drivan

                No one said that we don’t like SWTOR. I have said many times that I like and still play SWTOR.

                I don’t like the slow pace at which they release content, I don’t like that they have decided to have a laser like focus on single content types and I don’t like that they seem to break more than they fix with every maintenance cycle.

                I’m flabbergasted that a video game running under the world’s most popular IP doesn’t seem to be getting much financial support from its developer, their parent company or the owner of the IP. It feels like all 3 companies are just letting it slowly and painfully fade away. That is killing because I LOVE Star Wars, but what Bioware and EA are allowing to happen to SWTOR should be criminal.

                This used to be a GREAT game and will definitely stay on my top 10 list long after it is gone, but with their current direction and what little is being produced I can’t sit idly by pretending that shit doesn’t suck donkey balls. Yes I still love the parts that I have always loved, but FFS I have leveled 32 toons….

                This is Star Was….
                STAR
                WARS
                Those 2 words PRINT money, SWTOR should be raking in the dough and destroying their competition, but that isn’t happening. So either there has been some seriously bad decision making happening on the part of BW and EA or there aren’t very many Star Wars fans in the gaming world…

    I cant play the game. After patch the launcher crash or in my char selection it says I need to download the planet where my char is, the download bar is always at 0.00% and the play button is always gray. Just one thing to talk about, when you sell one product and take the money, you need to ensure that the product you sold works. I paid for a broken product 🙂

    • HMHero

      its bitraider call customer service theyll tell ya what to do

    • Fred Garvin

      “I can’t play the game.”

      This was an unintentional Quality of Life improvement added in the patch. Enjoy.

        Dr. Mike, the problem solves itself by restarting the launcher 5x times. Thank for your attention anyway. Love you <3

    “Players who complete the main story Mission on Iokath while also on a repeatable Chapter will no longer be blocked from gaining Elara Dorne or Malavai Quinn as a Companion.”

    My Warrior is still missing Quinn… :/

    • Andre Hoffmann

      Same as my Warrior i missing Quinn too, so what can i do to get him?

      • Darth Ji’inx

        Nothing at the moment. We’ll just have to hope that they eventually fix it for real. :/

  • Kirill Zhmurenko

    I dont know who writes the notes, but they really deswrve a reward for their sense of humour. Made me smile

    • abaddonsmummy

      I do love the way they write them eg “Even though they thought it was “really cool,” NPCs during the Fortify the Defenses Mission on Iokath will no longer have numbers in their name.”
      Brilliant, always makes me chuckle.

    • Acher4

      So true. They add nice humour to an sometimes “boring to read” notes.

  • Darth Ji’inx

    Still missing Quinn on my Warrior. :/
