I Got A Message From Eric Musco?? | 08.07.2012, 02:00 PM
Hey everyone,

You caught me, I totally did send that PM! As I explained, one of my roles here at BioWare is guild outreach and so sometimes I like to prowl the forums and establish contact with new guilds that catch my eye. However, anyone should feel free to contact me with questions, comments or concerns in regards to guilds. We have a public email address for that kind of thing and it is guilds@swtor.com. Any guild should feel free to reach out to me through that address.

Thanks!

Scheduled Maintenance: August 7th, 2012 | 08.03.2012, 12:46 PM
Hello everyone, we wanted to let you know that we will be performing scheduled maintenance for six hours on Tuesday, August 7th, 2012 from 2AM CDT (12AM PDT/3AM EDT/8 AM BST/9AM CEST/5PM AEST) until 8AM CDT (6AM PDT/9AM EDT/2PM BST/3PM CEST/11PM AEST). All game servers and SWTOR.com will be offline during this period. This maintenance is expected to take no more than six hours, but could be extended.

This weekly maintenance is done in order to make general improvements and to check performance of the game so that we can continue to provide a consistent, quality experience. Quite often (but not always) after a maintenance period there will be a patch to download. After the maintenance, please login via the launcher to download the latest patch. If your launcher was open during the maintenance, you must close and reopen it for a fresh login.

Please remember that we have added a new section for the SWTOR subreddit and to nominate discussions from there as well!

You can also send me your nominations directly in a PM!

Please remember the Community Round-Up blog is meant to highlight interesting, productive discussions, and server events - not the most talked about forum threads.

TOFN chat bugged | 07.30.2012, 02:05 PM
Hello everyone. We apologize for the inconvenience and are currently looking into chat issues on Tomb of Freedon Nadd. Thanks for your understanding, and please watch this thread for additional information as it becomes available.

BW can you PLEASE fix your buggy OPS!!!! | 07.30.2012, 01:02 PM
Hey everyone!

I am trying to get the exact details about the issue you experienced to pass them onto the team. If I am understanding this correctly:

  1. You kill the 3rd bomber.
  2. Kill the walker, which leaves Kephess.
  3. While fighting Kephess, a 4th bomber (which is unneeded) erroneously spawns.

If this is the case, let me know. Also, one of the things that is always helpful in bug reports is if there is anything you can think of that is directly causing this to happen, feel free to add it. This will give us a great starting point to get to the bottom of what's going on.

Hello everyone. The server has been taken down briefly to resolve chat issues that players have been experiencing. This is only a brief server restart, and we will post as soon as the server's available again. We appreciate your patience and apologize for the late communication with regards to the restart.

Restart "TOFN" server !! | 07.27.2012, 03:04 PM
Hello everyone. This server is currently being restarted, and we apologize for any inconvenience. If you did not see standard server restart messages, this was due to the nature of the chat issues. However, it should be available again very soon, and we appreciate your patience.

Official Q&A Thread for August 3rd Blog Post | 07.27.2012, 01:48 PM
Hello and welcome to the official Q&A thread for questions to be answered for the August 3rd, 2012 Q&A blog post.

As a reminder, we’ll be starting up a weekly Q&A blog series in which we will select questions from the community and post answers to them every Friday. We’ll have the next set of answers next week on August 3rd, 2012, but before that, we need your questions!

Please use this thread to ask your question (one per community member, so make it count!). On Tuesday at 2PM CDT (8PM BST/9PM CEST/5AM AEST), we will close this thread, select the questions, and get answers to them for Friday’s blog post.

In order to increase the chances of having your specific question answered and to help us keep the thread manageable, here are some guidelines on asking questions:
  1. Keep your question relatively short. Background details are welcome, but don’t go overboard.
  2. Please actually ask a question. We want to hear constructive feedback elsewhere in the Forums.
  3. Use common sense – we cannot answer everything, especially on far-reaching content.
  4. This should go without saying, but be respectful.
  5. Limit yourself to one question in this thread, please. You can always ask another question next week!
  6. And finally, as a reminder, this is not a discussion thread. Do not comment about what somebody else has posted.

As development plans are always subject to change, questions about future features will often get vague answers which can be repetitive and sometimes annoying. With that in mind, the development team is more interested in questions about current in-game features or systems, or questions about why development decisions were made. You’re still welcome to ask questions about future features and we’ll continue to answer them where appropriate – just expect the occasional ‘soon.’

Any other posts apart from questions in the thread will be removed.

With that being said, please ask away!
