So...
- back to Tuesdays, ok let's keep it regular (high fibre intake helps)
- the reason for the early start to bounty week is now clear
- relatively minor niggle - since you were obviously planning this a week or more ago (evidenced by early start to bounty week) it would have been nice to give at least 24 hours notice

Heh.. glad I cloned one on my character while I had the chance.

I wonder when they are "officially" releasing this baby into the CM.

I know this has been said over and over again, but these times are really *the worst* times for servers to be down for APAC players. My guild in particular has a TFB HM progress run planned for tonight which we were hoping to sneak in before weekly reset.

3am PDT = 8pm Sydney time, prime time for gaming in Australia / Asia region. If you simply shifted the maintenance to 6am PDT (11pm Sydney time) APAC players would love you a little bit more and we'd actually be able to get some stuff done on a Tuesday or Wednesday night.

Not sure what time this is in Europe, but surely server updates could be staggered to suit timezones for simple maintenance patches??

Interesting...you let us preview the new pack now but we can't get it for awhile? That's kind of cool...but such a tease!

Gree/BH always went live on servers 3am, even the Makeb launch.

The CorSec Electrobaton has been removed from the Collections Window to be included again when the weapon is added.

OI! No fair, I have it in my Collection! Plus I have one to sell

Can you clarify whether this will require players who already have it (after its release on Harbinger) to reobtain the item when it is next added to Collections? Presumably Collections will be able to detect my bound electrobaton and add it?

Glad I didn't throw it away!

in europe it would be 4 pm till 9pm
london would be 3 pm till 8 pm
Moscow would be 8 pm till 1 am
so more people would lose the game on primetime, and because bioware decided not to regiolock the game its not possible to stager maintenance
