Hello Customer Support, i encountered the following error: "The patcher service is temporary unavailable. Please visit our forums for the most recent announcements available".
I can`t access the game for 6.5 days.

I was a subscriber for 2 months, now i`m on Free-To-Play model.

I do not have an anti-virus or firewall blocking swtor, everything was fine 6.5 days ago.
My internet connection is 50 Mbit/s, usual lag 100-130 ms, no downloads/uploads are active during connection and gaming.
Connection to internet is (WiFi adapter -----> Wifi router ------> Internet).
No other programs besides Windows usual processes and tasks are active.
My hardware specs:
- Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4 Ghz
- Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
- Hynix DDR-3 8 GB 1333Mhz
- Gigabyte Radeon 6970 2 GB with latest 12.10 drivers.
- Western Digital Caviar Black 750 GB
- Thermaltake TR-2 550W
- Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I`m doing daily CCleaner runs to clean my PC from registry errors and other possible junk. Also i upgraded my PC 4 days ago (CPU + motherboard + cooler) to the current system.

Please help
