Shouldn't 25 - 3 x 5 equal 10? But yes, seems like the fleetpass is now not emergency any ore, but my free pass every day all day long!

Not a fan of the bounty hunter event changes. Some of us have Kingpin contracts already bought on Hutta with high level characters, form what Iím understand we wonít be able to do them now. Nor do I like the fact we can only do each Kingpin contract once a week on a character, instead of each day. For start it lock out low level character form the event quite fast, like my BH. I'm not sure if there trying to slow down the rep grind but this isnít going to work. All it going to do is force people to play on even more alts.

As for the color, all I can say is wow. Those are some crazy prices; I wasnít even in the ballpark on those. I was going to buy them but no way, not for a one time use. If they were permit or account wide maybe.

Anyways like how you handle the medical table, change to fleet pass, and Iím interested in the new emotes.

This has happened 3 times out of the last 4 or 5 scheduled maintenance windows with little to no warning and directly affects the scheduled runs of many APAC-oriented guilds. For my guild in particular, it cuts our ops schedule in half. Then there's the wonderful unscheduled windows for minor fixes that reflect you use poorly designed debug and testing tools.

Yes you can do as you please in terms of maintenance scheduling, but how about a little courtesy to those of us in a time zone that isn't in the middle of the night. Though I suppose if you keep alienating them the remaining 10-20% of us kicking about will just leave, which also solves the problem.
That's pretty rude of them and it would be nice to have that changed. I play on shadowlands so I don't encounter that, however it is annoying when I'm off that day and I have to wait til 10am to start playing.


Must all the servers be taken down and updated at the same time?
How hard is it to do an update? Seems like it can almost be automated or done by one person.

If not... Couldn't you just update them all around 3 AM in each servers most popular time zone? Maybe hold off on the euro server since they'd have too much of a head start

Yep off on the QT time, got excited. There is some really neat things in this patch they just slip in-game.

I sometimes wonder if they're just afraid people will just find something to complain about anyways.

I wanted to wait extra long for my travel time. Damnit Bioware.

2000 for a single black dye is completely ridiculous; 1000 for the white isn't any better.

That wouldn't do much to fix the problem I just described. Advanced notice would work wonders.

"All Imperial players can now reach the lore object to obtain the "Invasion of Balmorra" Codex entry, as it has been moved just inside the Balmorran Arms Factory".

That's nice for the Imps, but at least that one was achievable with an agent.

The Republic equivalent is still broken.

The Safe mail was unexpected and very, very, very appreciated for altoholics! Having cross-faction legacy alts appear in the type-ahead would be nice but this eliminates 99% of my worry and prevents me from mistakenly mailing valuables to my original (pre-server-merger) name. TYVM!!!!!!!!!!!

Ofc the fleet pass and QT are wonderful!

So much QoL for just a minor-numbered patch!

Thanks again for safe mail!!!!
