  • Corrected an issue where players could get more than 8-players onto their team in Warzones.
  • Kubrickian

    “Corrected an issue where players could get more than 8-players onto their team in Warzones.” Glad I wasn’t PVP’ing in recent weeks that sounds like premade from hell matches.

    As for GSF, Sledgehammer is the clown car of the bunch. Strange they didn’t pick a true bomber but a weird hybrid instead. Comet Breaker may be the coolest looking ship ever designed in Star Wars. Hope that 3D designer has that one in their portfolio when trying to get a job at ILM.

    • ThatGuy

      Good to know one is still, in fact, sane after having witnessed more than 8 enemies in warzones here & there. Hell, indeed.

    • AbnerDoon

      Agreed the sledge is the weak link of the bombers kind of sad they aren’t starting people with a beacon bomber. The same goes for the comet breaker as plasma rail is extremely finicky to land a shot. Even with accuracy up it’s seems to be a 1 in 3 or 4 chance for the shot to actually hit.

    • ConcernedGuest

      They are both hybrids .
      The Sledge ability as fighter is to limited ’cause running out of afterburner to fast, and for sat def has only one mine/drone.
      The Comet’s weap config is usless. When using the sniper gun the torpedes are wastes, and if switching for torpedos, well, why do you fly a sniper ship? Then use a Condor with missiles for faster target lock in dogfights.
      The only good use for the Comet is it’s fun configuration: twin torpedo banks … 🙂

      “Gold Five …. FOX THREE”

  • D_Pulse

    Sweet! I’ll be redownloading and subbing to finally get my EV cheevos.

    • ThatGuy

      Sounds like sarcasm lol

  • CrumpetTrumpet

    I wonder if summoning Quinn/Elara from the terminal will finally fix being unable to get back Torian/Vette.

    • ThatGuy

      I killed Quinn as soon as I could. So, there’s that.

    • gaelicvixen

      I let Vette die each time but haven’t actually tried to summon Torian since so I didn’t realise that was broken :C

  • Need2Crash

    Tier 4 crafting schematics can be found on Crew Skill Trainers and looted from Tier 4 Command Crates and PvP Loot Boxes.

    Many Tier 4 crafting schematics require Iokathian Samples which can be found on the Command Token Vendor.

    I wonder if it gona be 1:1 ratio for those or something stupid like 10:1 was hoping it was mat you could farm from iokath.

  • Ben Gimson

    “Major Valor Boosts which are rewarded from Encrypted Datacubes are now bind on pickup.”

    Not even bind to legacy. Thanks for making them utterly fucking pointless…

    • Jep Fareborn

      Gotta unlock them all from collections? Per each toon you use?

      • Ben Gimson

        The Encrypted Datacubes are added to collections. There’s 8 to unlock for about 90CC each if I remember right, though once they’re unlocked they’re unlocked for every character. Each one can be used to get a Major Valor Boost or a Major Experience Boost, for a total of 8 per character.

        Aside from the valor boost they have absolutely no other purpose.

        • Ian Argent

          You can get a nifty armor (YMMV) out of it.

          • Ben Gimson

            A set that’s been recoloured dozens of times. Valor boosts were the only reason to get the cubes, and now they’re being taken away.

            • Ian Argent

              Speak for yourself – I really rather like the armor and it’s a convenient way to get ahold of it.

              • Ben Gimson

                Lucky you.

              • Ian Argent

                I enjoy the game by enjoying the game. When that stops, so will I.

              • Ben Gimson

                Ok… not sure how that’s relevant, but ok.

    • Bind to legacy gives you infinite free boosts. Make new character -> unlock cubes from collection -> mail boosts -> delete character. That’s not really intended.

      • Ben Gimson

        You still have to grind up to the point where you can get to Shaddaa via heroic teleport, which is still an hour or two of work. The cubes are now utterly worthless.

  • Meelis S

    A new Command XP Legacy Perk, Commanding Legacy, is available for
    purchase. This perk can only be purchased once you have reached Command
    Rank 300 on a character and it increases all Command XP gains within
    your Legacy by 25%. This perk stacks with all other bonuses and only
    affects Command Ranks 1-299.

    Lol did i see it right? Another pay for consumable. Oh boy it will never end.
    Next item will be CXP rank 300+ booster. Another CM consumable to buy.
    Wait for it….

    • rippled

      Um it states “legacy perk” so no you didn’t see it right. Bout as far from right as possible infact.

    • Roksik

      It’s a legacy perk, wanna bet you’ll be able to purchase it with credits?

    • Sean Jackson

      No, you did not see that right…

    • Sadiala Desanta’Fey

      It can be gotten for credits (not a consumable) and its passive legacy wide. Chill, its decigned to make running alts viable – or more viable than having to run main at all times.

  • Disqus this

    Command XP Legacy Perk is a nice idea but only being 25% and not working but for levels 1-299 (so mains are out).

    It’s rather lack luster as a real catch up mechanic for alts.

    Swing and a miss BW. standard operating procedure for this guys.

  • Jep Fareborn

    They need to fix the decoration drops in Bonus Boss HM…er I mean Bonus Boss Master Mode Flashpoints. They need to drop automatically every time again as they once did before! ‘Earned’ decorations have become so scarce now in-game 🙁

  • Manzlok

    They need to fix a bug in star fortress where your comp disappears after every elevator.

    Been screwed over several times by forgetting to summon comp and walking into bosses.

  • Havik79

    Damn it, I was hoping for a preview of the new stuff in the event, I hope they are decent, still have like 20 tokens from the last one.

    I hope they hurry up and add tunings to collection like Keith said, I want to use my dark tuning from the DvL event.

  • Sotos

    “Players who defeat the Infernal Council in the Eternity Vault will now receive the “Defeating the Infernal Council” Achievement as intended”.
    LOL…took some years but here you are 😛 …

    • AdjeYo

      Pretty sure it was fine and they broke it at some point. I still remember rushing to get all the EV and KP achievments when it was announced their NiMs would be removed in the operation upscale

  • abaddonsmummy

    Some really decent stuff here, legacy alt cxp boost, disintegrating worth more cxp, speeder boost, Tier 4 crafting, companions influence gain on missions etc etc.
    Very good job.
    Hey it’s not ‘actual’ content as we all know and eagerly want, but these QOL improvements are pretty good.

  • Neun Dreisieben

    summarized:
    still no new content.

    • You would have to be a bit of an idiot to expect new content in a minor patch…

  • Steven Moore

    They updaded the patch notes to include that you can purchase grade 10 mats using jawa junk/scraps

  • Dr. Lagfest

    Where is the ventor for 246 items … ? Its just a new bonded item >.<

    • Vendor? They’re craftable now, they’re not vendor items. Try the GTN.

  • Andrew Horton

    so no new stroy mode for iakoth

  • j’oe

    the influence per crew missions is kinda bad, also no influence from crafting… laaame

  • hulkette

    Players who finished Iokath who are unable to summon Elara Dorne or Malavai Quinn can now use the Companion Locator Terminal to retrieve them.

    Still not working

    • KaffeboysDru

      works for me

    • Biggi

      Still not working for me.

  • Scared Guest

    Weapon tunings now in the collections, its working as intended or an exploit?!

  • Swelke

    “When traveling to Belsavis via the Galaxy Map, Section X will no longer be selected by default.

    When traveling to Corellia via the Galaxy Map, The Black Hole will no longer be selected by default.”

    Might sound like a joke, but dude, seriously. FINALLY. No matter how many times I travel to those planets, I never select the right area first.

    • Emon McCullen

      This is the one thing about these patch notes that really annoys me. Quicktravelling to a planet brings you to the orbit dock or space port, usually neither of the locations I want to be in and quuicktravelling out out there still doesn’t work most of the time. QT’ing to SecX and BH was a very convenient and fast way of going to Belsavis and Corellia. Now I have to pay attention to actually click these when using the option…

  • ConcernedGuest

    Speeder Boost 120% / 130% … bugged
    Conqueror of Corellia achievement from last week … bugged
    Ticket system for EA support … bugged / not working

    WTF??

  • The Great Scott

    As always, no indication in the Launcher nor anywhere in the patch notes of the actual download size. Can anybody please inform me of the amount of data I’m going to need? Thanks!

  • Shaun Kirtley

    I would really appreciate it if they remade the pistol running animation for the female characters, for some reason as soon as they have a pistol in hand they bring their elbows in as they run making it look like they are trying and failing to powerwalk.
