This delay really couldn't have been surprising to anyone...could it??

They've been very clear that the release dates are TARGET dates, as in not carved into stone and dropped from on high. I get that it's inconvienent to have taken off work in order to enjoy a new patch, but delays of new patches happen so often in mmos, in general, and swtor, in particular, that this cannot be a surprising situation. I'm glad that 1) they're being clear about the delay and why and 2) that they're not releasing an unstable patch in order to hit an arbitrary date. I'd take this experience to heart and plan for there to be delays the next major patch as well - this is pretty much par for course.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Could you at least tell us if the patch is planned for this coming raid week? Assuming NiM shares the lockout with hard mode, it would be cool to know if we should save our TFB runs this week for eventual NiM attempts or if we can go into hard mode for the week.

Thanks.

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.

Um, yeah........the target date that was released (11th) was a target date and we knew this. When they posted that there will be maintenance on the 11th and 2.2 will be deployed......................that was an official released date. It was very *unlucky* for them to not have the patch actually FINISHED when they gave the official release date. This is bad business management, nothing more nothing less. When a business is managed badly, it fails.
DPS is science. Healing is art. Tanking is strategy.

Hey folks,

I wanted to give you an update on Paid Character Transfers since I know you have been curious about it with the delay of 2.2. Unfortunately, we have come across some bugs that are present with Character Transfers, specifically around Achievements. We definitely want to insure that we are providing the best service possible when you pay to transfer your character.

Know that unlike Game Update 2.2, fixing this is a bit more involved and so Paid Character Transfers will no longer be launching with 2.2. This is entirely subject to change as we work through it, but the next likely launch target is 2.2.1. I apologize for the delay on this, I know many of you were looking forward to transferring your characters this week. We will get it out as soon as we can!

Disappointing, very disappointing, but, as I said in a prior post, not unexpected. This is par for course.
