Harbinger Down!?!?! | 01.24.2015, 11:54 PM
Hey everyone,

Quick update. We have been working through the possible issues which brought the server down. It is our goal to get the Harbinger back up ASAP. Unfortunately we are still working through getting the server back online. I have no ETA at this time. I will continue to pass on information as I have it. Thank you all for being patient.

Thanks for the info! We are aware of a number of these situations, but if you run into one, make sure to put in a /bug or post here so that we can make sure we're accounting for all of the still available Planetary Comms.

16-Player Story Mode Loot | 01.21.2015, 11:33 AM
Hey folks,

We completed the investigation into the 16-Player Story Mode loot drops, and it does appear that they are not correct. We are aiming to get this fixed in 3.1.

Changes Coming in Tomorrow's (1/21) Maintenance | 01.20.2015, 04:28 PM
Hey folks,

First, as Tait alluded to we will be having a maintenance tomorrow, on Wednesday the 21st. We didn't have our regular Tuesday maintenance due to the federal holiday here in the states. I wanted to let you know a few of the things coming in tomorrowís patch:
  • Item rarity borders will now show properly
  • No more getting stuck in Blood Hunt if someone dies to Jos or Valk Beroya
  • The Underlurker will no longer rush extremely quickly back to his target after leaping
  • There have been adjustments made to the Contraband Slot Machine (more on this in a second)
  • There is also one other fix, check the final patch notes for more info
Letís talk about the changes coming to the Contraband Slot Machine. When we were going into 3.0.2, we wanted to make Grade 11 materials more accessible to more players than they were at the time. As you know, we simultaneously put in the Contraband Slot Machine, which afforded you a fairly good chance to get Jawa Junk and other Jawa vendor scrap parts. This had two effects:
  • It had the risk of taking the Grade 11 material costs in the economy, in the long term, to a price below where we would like
  • It created a situation where it could be more profitable to completely ignore crew skills by use of the Slot Machine
With those in mind, we decided to make the following changes, which will be live tomorrow:
  • The drop rate on all Jawa scraps, has been greatly reduced
  • The drop rate on Contraband Reputation items, has been increased
  • To insure that the Slot Machine is still an awesome item to strive for, we have added a faction specific walker mount as a very rare drop
  • Lastly, we have increased the cost of each Slot Machine coin from 500 to 750 credits. It was always our intent that the coin cost would increase over time as we add more Slot Machines that accept the coin
Thanks everyone!

The GMT times are actually correct - it was the PST times that I got wrong (I wrote them in local time). Sorry - fixed!

Sentinel and Marauder Changes | 01.16.2015, 09:45 AM
Hey folks,

We know there has been concern from the Sentinel and Marauder community about the status of their class, and when they might be receiving changes. Sents and Maras will see changes in update 3.1.1. As a secondary note, it is our plan that in some cases we will also put our minor patches (such as 3.1.1) on PTS. This way we can get some additional testing, especially around class changes.

Thanks everyone!

The Contraband Slot Machine | 01.16.2015, 09:41 AM
Hey folks,

We know that there have been many questions about the Contraband Slot Machine and its intent. Here are a few notes on it:
  • The Contraband Slot Machine is not bugged.
  • It is 100% not an exploit to use the Slot Machine.
  • If you feel the desire to sell access to your Stronghold, thatís totally up to you. As a reminder, do not scam people as that is against ToS.
  • We added the Slot Machine as a fun idea based on the positive feedback from the Nightlife event, so spend those credits to your heartís content!
With that being said, we do hear the concern from many of you around the effects of the Jawa Junkís drop rate on the economy. We are going to take a look at it and make changes accordingly. I will let you know once I know more. In the meantime, have fun!
