That is not the issue. If they found the bug a week ago they could have delayed it for as long as needed. But right now the damage is done.

What needs to be weighed is the severity of allowing said bug to go live vs messing up everyone who scheduled their lives around this. This is why many people are asking what the bug is. If it's something like "unify colors isn't working" or "TfB NiM first boss can't be killed", or "ranked warzone queue is broken".

No, we complain because it seems to be impossible for them to set a target date and hit that target.

It really does matter. If the issue is something unimportant id rather just wait for that for another week and get majority of the patch tomorrow. Much rather that than wait an extra day for the whole patch.

To clarify two points in the thread. Although I don't have exact timing yet, Game Update 2.2 will not be tomorrow (6/11) at all. The maintenance is delayed past tomorrow.

As for the specific bug. What we needed to fix were some critical bugs inside of the the new Nightmare Mode Operation, which would need to be fixed before the Update went live. Upon implementing those fixes the Game Update itself became unstable. That is what we are working through now.

Hope that gives a bit of insight.

I'd rather have a stable patch filled as less bugs as possible, than a bug they found that caused too many harmful bugs go live. All you other people who scheduled your lives around this better have learned a lesson.

Makes sense to hold off on a criticle bug that involves PvE. Good thing bolster has been working as intended since the test server..oh wait.

Eric thank you for the reply. I still think it is a terrible practice to schedule an update which isn't finished. Why not make sure it is final and then schedule the update? You would avoid these kinds of situations.

Anyway, one question still remains. Does this mean transfers are delayed aswell?

What exactly would that lesson be? Not to have any interest in competing for world firsts etc? Or maybe just that its time i moved on from SWTOR.

They clarified the problem now so for me personally, i can accept its more than likely the best course of action and it just sucks for me and the others who made plans.
