Hello everyone,

We are bringing down all servers in ~15 minutes in order to address the Temple Chair.

Thank you.

Temple Chair (Basic) Exploit | 06.24.2015, 03:51 PM
Hey folks,

We are continuing to remove players who are using the exploit from the game. Currently, players found to be exploiting are all receiving a 7-day suspension. This in no way means that this is the only action that will be taken against them. A 7-day suspension is the minimum suspension we are currently giving out and it removes the player from the game, giving us time to further investigate each account.

After investigating each account (and transfers to related accounts) we will go through and take additional action, including removal of credits, items purchased, and adding additional suspension time up to and including permanent suspension all based on their severity.

Again, we ask that you please avoid use of this exploit. I will continue to pass on updates as I have them

Hey folks,

Quick update. We have already begun taking action against players who have used this exploit and will continue to monitor the situation. Separately, we are working to get this fixed ASAP and are hoping to get it out today. I know many of you have questions about what is being done, how players are being tracked, etc. I will pass on specifics on all of these things once the issue has been resolved and all action has been taken.

I do want to reiterate, do not participate in this exploit. We made sure to notify everyone ASAP that this was an exploit and that action would be taken against its use. We are taking this issue very seriously, and appropriate action will follow.

Hey everyone,

I see some confusion in the thread and wanted to clarify that seeing the Launcher messaging does not indicate that you personally have done something against Terms of Service. This messaging is displayed to the entire player base as a means to inform everyone that we are aware of the exploit and that participating in it will result in action.

If the launcher messaging brought you to this thread thinking that you have been banned or otherwise had action taken against you're account, don't worry - we are just trying to get the information to everyone as they log into the game.

Hey folks,

In today's patch, we placed Temple Chair (Basic) onto the Esstran Exports vendor for one credit. After bringing the servers live today we noticed that currently, you can sell the Chair back to the vendor for 100 credits. Obviously, this is not intended. As stated before, when these issues arise we want to make sure we get out in front of it as quickly as possible and are open with you about what is being done.

For the time being, please do not buy and sell the Temple Chair (Basic) in this manner. This behavior is considered an exploit. We will be addressing this issue as soon as possible. Once fixed, we will investigate and then take appropriate action for use of this exploit.

Thanks everyone. I will pass on update as I have them.

KotFE: Why not weekly updates to the players? | 06.19.2015, 01:54 PM
Although it won't necessarily be a traditional "Friday Update" like you referenced, we are planning to have regular content from now through launch. Everything from blogs to screenshots. We will be sure to keep you intrigued and ready for Fallen Empire.

PS - Tait and I will continue to consume string cheese throughout this period, for science.

Do we get to keep our stuff? And question re crafting | 06.17.2015, 02:18 PM

Also, I am big into crafting --its how I've made my SWTOR fortune. Will crafting remain the same after the expansion? I am confused about it due to the information on having to "find" old companions and gaining new ones.

Thanks! I'm mostly excited about the expansion, but I'm pretty attached to my characters, companions, their stuff and the in-game economy.
Yup, you absolutely get to keep your stuff! How Crafting will work is something we will talk about more down the line. Thanks.

KOTFE Story and Companions | 06.17.2015, 01:08 PM
Hey folks!

Seeing all of the discussion around our Knights of the Fallen Empire announcement has been awesome! It means a lot to the writing team to see how much y’all care about the details of the story and characters of SWTOR, and all of the insightful questions and debates that flow from that. I’m here to hopefully shed a bit of light on a few of the most common questions I’ve seen.

Up front, I think the best answer I can give to any story question is that it’s always best to wait and see how the story itself will answer it. I personally just hate giving out spoilers, so I won’t be doing that here. I promise, the main storyline of KOTFE is all about the things y’all have been asking, and October is going to be here very soon. In the meantime, though, let’s see if we can’t at least clarify a couple of things now:
  • The Outlander: your character’s past will be a key part of their identity as the Outlander moving forward. The choices you’ve made, romances you’ve pursued, your class, etc are all a part of who your character is, and those decisions will be honored in KOTFE; often in unexpected ways. How that works for characters who are created at level 60 is something we’ll dive into in the future, but we will not be setting a “canon” version of any class or world storyline. Your choices matter – that’s at the heart of our storytelling philosophy at BioWare.
  • Companions: there’s a ton of stuff going on with companions in this release, and we’re not ready to dive into most of it just yet. What I can say is that past companions will return in the story, sometimes as very critical parts of the overall story shared by all Outlanders. Which classes can recruit which characters, who can be romanced, who can you kill and who might betray you? You’ll have to play and see Finally, I’ve seen a lot of people referencing the KOTFE page’s character list as a list of companions – not everyone on that list will become a companion, and not every companion in the story is included in that list.
  • Valkorion: who is this guy? What happened to that other Emperor? Aren’t they both actually Jadus, who’s secretly Kephess, who’s actually a mutated clone of Kai Zykken created by Fez Burba for the Star Cabal’s secret war against the Shroud? OK, so I actually haven’t seen that theory, but IT’S ALL TRUE TELL EVERYONE BEFORE IT’S TOO LA----

[Charles had to take a few days off to relax, but he’ll be back in time to answer more questions at our Community Cantina event at San Diego Comic Con next month! - Musco]

Confirmed, you can still return to old planets.

BIG Question on Free level 60's and the Ones on CC.... | 06.17.2015, 12:05 PM

My other question is that when one makes a new 60, does that character's story take place right after the KOTFE trailer and does NOT go through the ORIGINAL 1-50 storyline? Meaning any companion you would have gotten from the original storyline are gated until you somehow meet them in the new expansion or the new companions will be your original 5 companions from the KOTFE storyline.
These are great questions! It is details like these and more that we will talk about in a future blog. There are definitely a lot of logistical questions that come with starting at 60 and we want to make sure cover them all. Stay tuned a bit closer to launch.
