Excellent request! I am happy to report that throughout the whole weekend we had exactly zero new exploiters. We really can't express how happy we are to see that all of our players continued to play fair and without the use of an exploit. In the future, it will continue to be our goal to respond to, and act quickly to curb use of any exploit. A special thank you to all of you who avoided this issue and to everyone who reported this to us privately. Get back to leveling!

Hey Shirahko,

We have a few edge case players who have not had it activated yet. We are actively looking into fixing these right now!

Hey folks,

The script has been run to completion. Please completely close your game and reopen it, all active subscribers should have the Epic Story XP Boost!

There is no way to know that it has hit you without logging off and back in to see if the Boost is turned on. I will keep you informed with updates as I have them!

Unfortunately, you have to log completely out of the game. Keep in mind if you want to wait I will message as soon all subscribers have had it activated.

Thanks

This is just a bug since the script I mentioned hasn't hit you. That message will disappear once the Epic Story XP Boost has hit you.

Hey folks,

In order to turn on our Epic Story XP Boost, we are running a script which will activate it for all subscribers. In total the script will take approximately 90 minutes to hit all subscribers. Once the script has hit you, you will need to log out and log back in for it to be active. I will post in this thread once the script has been completed.

All subscribers should have the Epic Story XP Boost by 10AM PDT.

Thank you for your patience. I will continue giving updates as I have them.

Hey folks!

I am seeing the same thing you are, the Epic Story XP Boost is not yet live. We are actively checking with the dev team to see what the status is. I will give you updates as soon as I have them.

Hey folks!

The Epic Story XP Boost is set to go live at 8AM PDT, so approximately one hour from the time I am making this post. Who's ready to get their levelin' on?!

So Bioware, about people bypassing the locked part on Ziost to fight the OP Boss etc. | 05.01.2015, 10:36 AM
Hey folks,

I wanted to pass on one more update before we go into the weekend. In looking at our data, since we actioned players yesterday for exploiting we have had no additional players exploit since then. It is a great sign that, for the time being, use of the exploit has completely stopped. We will continue to monitor throughout the weekend and take action against any further exploitation.

We want to thank all of you who have steered clear of that area and continue to play the game in a fair and respectful way. I will give you one final update regarding the exploit on Monday. Thanks!

Hey folks,

I wanted to give you an update on the Ziost exploit that was discovered. As mentioned in my post yesterday, we took action against those players who had participated and we are continuing to monitor for additional players throughout May 4th. In doing so, we have discovered more players who were exploiting last night. Since we had previously expressed that participation was considered an exploit, we are going to be increasing the action taken against these players. Those players will all be receiving a minimum of a one week suspension, along with the other actions which we listed yesterday.

To reiterate, we will continue to monitor this issue throughout the morning of May 4th when the area goes live. Action will continue against players who participate in this exploit. Thank you all for helping us to keep The Old Republic a fun and fair place for everyone.

Details of the Grand Nightlife Pack | 04.30.2015, 10:34 AM
Hey folks!

We have seen some confusion around the Grand Nightlife Pack, what it is, and why it costs a bit more than you normally see on a Cartel Pack. Admittedly, we could have been a little bit more clear in the store tooltips and we will make sure that is better in the future.

So, what is in the Grand Nightlife Pack? This pack is basically all of the best items from The Star Cluster and Club Vertica Nightlife Packs all in one place. Here is a basic idea of the items you will find in the pack:
  • Complete armor sets (ex: Tulak Hord Disciple’s Armor)
    • Note: All armor sets pieces are contained in a single lockbox, you do not need to get pieces individually
  • Mounts (ex: Dathomir Rancor)
  • Weapons (ex: Exquisite Champion's Dualsaber)
  • Color Crystals (ex: Advanced Yellow Core)
  • Rest & Recharge Items (ex: Credit Flip)
  • Etc.

What you will not find in the pack is the following:
  • Minipets
  • Titles
  • Emotes

As a last note, this is how each part of this 4 slot pack works:
  • Slot one: A random super rare or better item
  • Slot two: A random item
  • Slot three: A fortuitous dye kit (these contain two random dyes and have a change to drop rare dyes like black/black)
  • Slot four: A Minor or Major XP Boost (the general boosts, not the specific ones such as Exploration, Flashpoints, etc)

As you can see these packs are very special in that they provide you a high chance to get some really great items. I hope this explains a bit about the new Grand Nighlife Pack and why you will definitely want to get your hands on one, or ten, while they are around.

Thanks!

Update: Win-trading and "Trolls" in Ranked PvP | 04.30.2015, 09:26 AM
Hey folks!

As we have done before, I wanted to provide an update on the status of win-traders and trolls in Ranked PvP. For win-traders, we made another pass at the very end of the season and on Tuesday we issued actions against win-traders, including resetting their rating so they would receive no rewards. As a reminder, any action that someone receives regarding win-trading will carry over to each subsequent season. Action taken against repeated win-traders will scale aggressively so we can curb this behavior.

One thing I am happy to report is that although we have certainly not gotten rid of win-trading yet, we have seen a steady decline throughout this season! We intend to continue pursuing win-traders in the hopes of removing this behavior from Ranked PvP entirely.

As for those PvP “trolls,” we have also seen a steady decline in this activity. As these players pop up, either through reports or our data, I am forwarding them onto our Terms of Service team for investigation and action. Players who are participating in this behavior are seeing some pretty severe action being taken. For these players they are all receiving, at a minimum, a 7 day suspension.

Thank you all for your continued reports and diligence in helping to clean up win-traders and trolls in Ranked PvP. I will continue to provide periodic updates throughout Season 5 and beyond.

-eric

Season 5 Update | 04.30.2015, 09:11 AM
Hello PvPers! Season 4 has come to a glorious conclusion and Season 5 is underway! We hope y'all enjoyed the action and are looking forward to a new season to test your mettle. I have a quick note to share with y'all about the Season 5 Reward Teaser.

Unfortunately the teaser for Season 5 will not be posted this week. We strive to have the teaser come out at the start of the season but right now with everything that is going on this Spring we are in a bit of a log jam and unfortunately the teaser blog will be coming out later in May. Featured in the blog is concept art of a reward that we feel is the best we've ever released and a reward that y’all have been suggesting ever since Ranked started. We will keep you in the loop of when to expect it and we hope y’all agree about its awesomeness when it comes out!

We are excited to see all the brutal action in Season 5. Now get in there and go berserk!

Cheers!

Hey all,

PTS will be going offline with the 3.2a maintenance today, but will be coming up separately, as we are going to apply a new patch to it today, as well!

I will let you know as we get closer to bringing it online.
