Downtime - 12/5/2016 | 12.05.2016, 04:11 PM
Hey everyone,

We brought the servers down to address an issue involving setting the stack size in the "Disintegration" pop up higher than the amount you had available.

As of this downtime, this issue has been fully resolved. For those who are wondering, we do consider having taken advantage of this bug an exploit. After a detailed review, we will take appropriate actions as needed.

Thank you,

Tait

Hey everyone,

Apologies for the last minute notice, but we will be bringing the servers down at 1:45 PST (2145 GMT) for a brief update. I will post as soon as the servers are available, but we don't expect the downtime to last more than an hour.

Hey folks!

Since there is a bit of confusion, I figured I'd jump in and let you know that this IS an intended change.

The following has been added to the known issues list:
  • The crafting schematics which drop from Operations currently require materials from Conquests. This is unintended, they should require materials from Operations.

Changing requirements on already earned items? That needs to be addressed. | 12.02.2016, 05:42 PM
Hey folks,

This is unintended, the items should not have a valor requirement. The team is looking into ways to correct this in a future patch. I will pass on updates regarding how and when as I have them.

Dark vs Light Event Achievements | 12.02.2016, 03:53 PM
Hey folks,

We have been reading the feedback since Tuesday regarding the removal of the Dark vs Light Achievements and we understand the frustration this has caused. With that in mind, we are looking into options for having those Achievements restored in some way (it may not be exactly how they were when you earned them). We should have more details to share next week! We just wanted to ensure that you know we are hearing your frustration around this issue and are looking into solutions.

Thanks!

Wasn't we supposed to get credits for old currency? | 11.30.2016, 10:56 AM
Quick update! After the quick maintenance we just had, some characters will now have received their credits from the crystal/commendation conversion. Here is the criteria:
  • My character has not logged in since 5.0 launch - The next time you log in you will have your credits.
  • My character has logged in since 5.0 launch - You will not receive your credits until after Friday's maintenance.
Thanks everyone.

Downtime: 30 November 2016 | 11.30.2016, 10:45 AM
Hey folks!

All servers are now live! Let's talk about why we did this quick maintenance. The Planetary Missions button in Galactic Command has had its functionality turned off to address a bug. The intent is to address the underlying issue and turn the functionality back on during our launch maintenance on Friday.

The reason we made this change is a bug where if someone pressed the Planetary Mission button there was a chance it could automatically complete some Missions. Meaning that by simply pressing the button, they could receive CXP. Additionally if someone declined the pop-up they would receive a new set of Missions which could continue this effect.

The actual effect of this bug is fairly minimal as it only impacted a limited amount of Planetary Missions. We are not taking action against individuals who experienced this bug. I also want to thank everyone for being discrete about the nature of this bug as we received quite a lot of personal messages indicating what was happening. That allowed us to isolate and address the issue quickly.

Thanks everyone!

Diplomacy missions have wrong Dark/Light icon | 11.29.2016, 04:10 PM
This is working as designed. The icon displays your selected alignment, because you will earn points for your chosen alignment by completing the Crew Skill Mission. HOWEVER, you will also earn the original value of Light or Dark side points as determined by the Mission.

In order to see this in action, you can hover over the Dark/Light icon in the top left corner of the mission to see how the math works out. Example: you're set to Light Side about to do a Dark Side mission, it will still show as Light. Hover over the icon to see the actually alignment point value. Also, if the Mission crits, it will give points based on the inherent points of the Mission, not your setting.

Shae Vizla Missing head | 11.29.2016, 01:01 PM
It is not intended that you can customize Shay, outside of the one of the three Shay Customizations you can get from her Alert. This is a bug, and will be addressed in a future patch. Anything she is wearing will be returned to you when she is updated.

Game Update 5.0 Known Issues | 11.29.2016, 10:49 AM
  • Crew Skills are missing from the Crew Skills UI. Workaround: Open the Crew Skills window with the hotkey ("B" by default) and they will repopulate.
  • Legacy Abilities are missing. Workaround: Relog and they will reappear.
  • Highlighted activities in Galactic Command are not granting the intended bonus.
  • The crafting schematics which drop from Operations currently require materials from Conquests. This is unintended, they should require materials from Operations.
  • No loot is dropping from Flashpoints for low level players, regardless of difficulty.

More 5.0 Bugs | 11.29.2016, 10:46 AM
Please make new threads for new issues instead of making "compilation" threads that contain a number of posts about different bugs. It makes it easier to reply to issues and keep information about specific bugs organized in one place.

Chapter Tells Subscribers They Need to Sub first?!? | 11.29.2016, 10:42 AM
The reason you are seeing this is that you likely do not have early access. That message is in error however, it should state that you need early access, not that you need to subscribe (given that you are already a subscriber). I will pass this on to the team.
