Full details coming soon but a few things that are pretty safe to assume about our cantinas:
  • They are typically on Friday or Saturday nights.
  • We try to host them as close to the convention as we can.
  • A pass is not required for entry (outside of 1 or 2 examples in the past).

Thanks!

What's Next? | 02.21.2019, 12:46 PM
Hey folks,

With 5.10.1 out the door I know you are all curious what is coming next. We have talked about some of this in the past but I want to put a new update all in one place.
  • Bugs from 5.10.1 – We still have a few issues that popped out of 5.10.1 (such as Vette causing hitching) that we want to address. Our next planned patch was actually 5.10.2 but we want to get a bug fix patch out sooner then that if we can. It won’t be huge but getting a few of these fixes out soon is something we are actively investigating. I will pass on more details on timing and what will be fixed once I know more.
  • 5.10.2 – Our next update is coming… We are prepping a couple of blogs around what you can expect in this update along with getting things staged to get it in your hands on PTS. Look for more info on this update in early March.
  • After 5.10.2 – We should have details on our SW Celebration Cantina announced toward the end of February. Join us in Chicago if you can, or just keep your eyes posted on the interwebs during Celebration for more news from us on what is coming this year.

Thanks all.

Hey folks,

No new updates but the team is aware of the issue and looking at a fix. It is our intent to get this fixed in our next patch, pending testing. I don't have timing on that patch at the moment but will pass on those details as I have them.

SWTOR Deserves A Revival: More Funding, Resources and Manpower | 02.21.2019, 11:56 AM

Hey Ylliarus!

To try to calm any tin foil hats spinning up from that image you linked, let me try to provide some context. The reason you cannot find that post anywhere on the forums is because it came from our Influencer forums. For those that don’t know (and we have a blog in the works for this very topic) we have something called the Influencer Program. This group contains content creators of all sizes who we aim to support via promotion, etc. One of the components of the group is that they have access to a closed, under-NDA forum where we sometimes seek out early feedback on things, address questions from their communities, and more.

The image you are linking to is from a specific topic that was brought up by some folks in the group. They were looking to get into creating content for Anthem in addition to SWTOR and were asking for similar support/access to what they have in our Influencer program. What you are seeing is my response to that request. There are a number of EA-wide influencer programs, most prominently the game changers group. We built our own program for SWTOR separate from that as we had very specific benefits we wanted to provide. As a result, being in our group doesn’t automatically mean that someone receives those same benefits on other EA or BioWare titles. So all in all, this post is really just me directing our influencers who are looking to expand into other EA games to investigate the EA game changer program.

That is the full context of that post, so I hope that clears up any concerns.

Companions after 5.10.1 | 02.15.2019, 06:01 PM
Hey folks,

The team has narrowed down exactly what caused the Companion influence issue and we believe we have a fix for it. The current plan is that we will have that fix in our next patch, which I do not currently have timing on. I will provide more info there as I have it.

One note is that when we fix it one of two things will happen. Either we will restore the companion to their prior Influence or it will remain at its current value, whichever is higher at the time.

Thanks all.

FYI: Restoration of lost Izax Kill / Timed Run Achievements is Incoming | 02.15.2019, 05:57 PM
Hey all, just as a quick update:

Now that 5.10.1 has fixed the underlying issue that was causing the MM Izax kill and GftM timed run achievements to reset, and new players can no longer be broken, we're going to be able to run an update over the character database to restore the achievements (and the original time stamps) to players who earned but subsequently lost the achievements.

Players who have re-earned the achievement need not fear --the script will simply jimmy the timestamp to the earliest date found in server logs. I realize this doesn't impact a great many people, but for something as demanding as MM Gods we wanted to give credit where it's due.

That being said, I can't offer a timeframe for when this update will occur. This kind of database update has to be performed during a downtime, and this specific issue impacts too few players to justify its own downtime, therefore it'll have to piggyback off of some otherwise scheduled downtime as is convenient.

So, sorry I can't tell you exactly when, but I just wanted to confirm that those first few clears will eventually be getting their original timestamps back. Look to Musco for updates on when this will occur.

This is something the team is aware of and looking to address in a future patch. I will get it added to the known issues list for clarity.

This is correct. The team is looking into an issue where Sith Warrior's who have Vette as their Companion are seeing these issues. I will pass on more info as I have it!

252/258 Set Bonus not working?? | 02.13.2019, 12:28 PM

So now, for me, set bonus is 100% okay and great. Perhaps some other people may have different experiences.
Highlighting this as it correctly describes what we fixed. In short, the armorings that were missing the set bonus after yesterday will now have it.

Companions after 5.10.1 | 02.12.2019, 05:18 PM
Hey folks,

The team is looking into the Companion issues reported following 5.10.1. Keep the details coming.

I mentioned in the set bonus thread that we may have a maintenance tomorrow to address that issue. We do not yet have a fix locked down for these companion issues so they will not be addressed tomorrow.

Thanks all, I will pass on more info as I have it!

252/258 Set Bonus not working?? | 02.12.2019, 03:37 PM
Hey all,

Quick update. We have a possible fix, the team is working through getting it created and tested. Once I have that confirmation we will plan to have a maintenance to push that fix live. Our current timeline if all goes well would be for tomorrow morning.

I will let you know in this thread once I have more details and if a maintenance is happening, I will get messaging live.

Thanks all, more details to follow.

I wanted to highlight this post as this is accurate. If you lost Hexid and are not seeing her Alliance Alert, look at your Mission Log. The Alert was automatically placed in there.

252/258 Set Bonus not working?? | 02.12.2019, 01:23 PM
Hey folks,

Thank you all for the details in this thread, they have been very helpful in us being able to quickly investigate the issue on our side.

The team is looking at what is going on and the best way for us to address it as soon as possible. I will provide update as I have them.

252/258 Set Bonus not working?? | 02.12.2019, 11:11 AM
Hey folks,

We are looking into your reports on the missing set bonuses from the armorings. I have a few follow-up questions to help in our investigation:
  • Although the tooltip isn't displaying the set bonus, is the set bonus still applying?
  • If you moved the armoring but still have the original shell. Is there the correct mod in your original shell, and you still have the moved mod (missing the tooltip)?
  • If you take the mod which is missing the set bonus and move it into your inventory does the tooltip change?
We are actively looking into the issue, thanks in advance for the help.

If i over looked it in notes never mind this but i do not think i did. If i didnt please fix this today.......

THANK YOU......
Good catch! I double checked and it is likely fixed, but I am also getting some conflicting information on whether it is resolved. Let me know after the patch today if Hexid is available to you!

Game Update 5.10.1 - Known Issues | 02.12.2019, 06:37 AM
  • Ossus crit path Missions are not rewarding Geonosian Power Cells when they should be.
  • In some cases Jace Malcom and Acina are both displaying as being killed by the player.
  • In some cases Sith Inquisitor players are unable to summon Quinn.
  • Not a bug but if you had a Companion reactivated for you with the changes in 5.10.1 you may receive an in-game mail containing their equipment. The mail will have the subject of "deleted character", fear not, your characters were not affected.
  • Ranged Companions further than 30m from their target are not attacking properly.
  • Sith Warriors who have Vette as there active Companion will see their game freeze intermittently.

So... this is most likely fixed actually. I didn't note it because there were a number of things "under the hood" causing credit to not be counted properly. However, this should be fixed now in almost every instance. The team is still verifying a few of this situations.

In this case I erred on the side of not noting something that is fixed as opposed to putting it in the notes if there were situations where it wasn't resolved. Once fully verified I will get it added!
