Lifeday will begin tomorrow! Also, the 6 year anniversary vendor will go live as well tomorrow with some new stuff. All of that info will get updated tomorrow on the in-game events page (plus I believe a standalone blog on the 6 yr anniversary).

Thanks everyone! Lord Ptach did not mean to cause panic by not mentioning it in the notes.

One week until I quit Swtor.... | 12.08.2017, 10:49 AM
As a heads up, once we get close to the movie launch (so mid-next week) we will make a post about spoilers. Specifically, that we don't allow them outside of SW discussion / off-topic and they must be spoiler tagged. Since we are all SW fans here, we action pretty hard on any rule breakers.

Let's all just be good to each other and not ruin the movie for anyone with spoilers on the forums.

So Bioware, you just going to pretend it didn't happen? | 12.07.2017, 02:30 PM
Hey folks,

Conquest rewards not being issued is definitely not something we are ignoring, I apologize if it felt that way. The team is continuing to investigate how and why this is happening so we can hopefully get a final fix for it. Separately, we don't want those of you who have earned your rewards to not get them, we are working on that as well.

I don't have timing updates right now, but the team is actively working through this.

Clarification Request; Nvidia GeForce Promotion | 12.07.2017, 01:17 PM

  • Is this only for newly registered Nvidia GeForce users or do already existing members using GeForce stand a chance as well?
  • How many packs will be given away?
  • Why are certain countries excluded?
  • Will something be done in the future for those using a different GPU?
Happy to provide some clarification!
  • There is a chance to receive a code, if you meet the criteria. Recipients are selected by Nvidia and are given out on 12/13 via a notification in GeForce Experience app. Not everyone who qualifies will receive the pack.
  • All accounts, not just new ones.
  • A lot!
  • This is due to various reasons, most commonly outlined by the countries themselves or the company running the giveaway (NVidia in this instance). If someone from a country that is not in one of NVIDIA’s participating country has a valid code, they will still be able to redeem it on swtor.com.
  • We are always looking for new promotional opportunities. Although nothing is planned right now, there is always that possibility in the future.
Hope that clears up any confusion.

Looking forward to new Warzone but I am hoping for some matchmaking in regs by now. Didn't win a single match as republic players on Darth Malgus.

Very curious about upcoming qol changes.
Hey Alec, hope you're enjoying the Traditional Jedi Robes! Just as an aside, we're making some final adjustments to the pants in the patch next week, too. Thought you'd appreciate the minor tweaks.

So, I was minding my own business and wandering around the forums when I suddenly got summoned into this thread!

We've been playing the new Yavin 4 Warzone, and it's quickly becoming my favorite. Can't wait for those of you who PvP to experience it next week!

I sincerely hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for the /poke.

Happy Holidays,

Boss HP for new Flashpoint: TatC -- Let's Discuss... | 12.05.2017, 05:26 PM
Hey folks,

We hear you about the health levels and mobs inside of Copero. We are making some changes with 5.6.1 next week to bring it more in line with the difficulty / time you experienced with Umbara. Here are the current patch notes for these changes in 5.6.1 (still subject to change, check on Monday for the final).
  • Bosses have had their health significantly reduced in both Story and Solo Mode.
  • The damage done by bosses has been reduced in both Story and Solo Mode.
  • Bosses have had their health slightly reduced in both Veteran and Master Mode.
  • The number of enemies has been reduced throughout the Flashpoint.
  • The Guardian Droid will no longer instant cast their Mortar Volley ability.
  • The Copero Security Droid will no longer instant cast their Seeker Missile ability.

Thanks everyone.

Ninja Scout Hull Buff | 12.05.2017, 09:41 AM
Hey there folks,

Great catch! The changes mentioned were ones that I made quickly in response to balance issues I saw after 5.5. There was a long-ish delay between when I made the adjustments and when the patch notes were being collated for 5.6. I simply forgot that these needed to be included in the 5.6 patch notes. I'll do my best to avoid doing that in the future. There certainly was no intent make "ninja" changes. The intent was simply to make responsive changes to aspects of GSF that still needed additional love.

I hope that helps explain.

Thanks,

Bret

"Daily" Areas Now Grant A Weekly Mission And Lose The Area Completion Daily. Why? | 11.30.2017, 05:42 PM
Hey folks,

Ok, let's talk about what changed in 5.6 and what is changing in 5.6.1 since they are tied together.

5.6 - In this Game Update we removed the Galactic Command interface from the game along with changing Group Finder to Activity Finder. As a part of this change some Missions were removed from the game as they were explicitly tied into either Galactic Command or Group Finder respectively. This is why the Daily Mission to send you to the those areas is no longer there. The weekly is intended to be the "wrapper" Mission for all of the dailies in that area, which is a change we made coming off of the "bugged" CXP values previously. This was a part of the steps we were taking to re-balance CXP across the game but it was missing one part...

5.6.1 - The lack of that Daily Mission means you actually get less CXP than you did previously from the Daily areas, which is not something we want. In fact, we want you to get a lot more CXP from solo Missions in the game. In Game Update 5.6.1 all of the Planetary Heroic Missions and Daily Area Missions are going to have their CXP rewards tripled to 225 CXP per Mission (up from 75).

Our goal with this change is that both Planetary Heroics and Daily Area Missions are great sources of CXP for solo players. These changes in 5.6.1 along with all of the other increased rewards for both group and solo in Activity Finder means you can gain Command Ranks quicker than ever in whatever activities you choose to play.

Thanks everyone.

-eric

PS – As an added aside… due to a separate change we made, each Planetary Heroic Mission will now also gain the bonus from the “Planetary Heroic Highlight.” Previously this only affected the mission which you gained from Galactic Command.

Solo Ranked NO Rewards at all - BUG??? | 11.30.2017, 01:51 PM

What you are describing certainly sounds like a bug. Is this happening after the match, from the solo ranked mission, or both?

I will pass it on to the team.

Known Issues: Game Update 5.6 | 11.30.2017, 01:44 PM
Hey folks,

One more known issue for the list. A handful of Disciplines are currently performing better than they should be. This is due to a number of unintended passive benefits which are applying to them. There is no in-game indication on your character of whether or not it is applying to you, but it is a bug related to some set bonuses. This will be addressed in a future update. If you notice you are healing for or doing more damage than usual, this is why.

Nerfed a Little Too Hard? | 11.30.2017, 01:11 PM
Hey folks,

There were some nerfs applied to the EMP weaponry with this last patch. However, there was one bug introduced on EMP missile. The intended functionality is:

Primary target received 100% damage.
Players enemies within the AoE sphere receive 50% damage.
No-player enemies within the AoE sphere receive 100% damage.

This bug should be fixed with 5.6.1. I hope this helps to clarify.

Oh! Yes, purchasing the cheap companion gifts is 100% fine. It was purchasing the free ones that was the problem.
