I would say that servers are not up since I just seem to sit on the load screen. Have tried reloading launcher several times. Anyone else having this issue or have any suggestions. Been trying for over an hour now.

seems like the patch is bugged and a lot. first the game gets stuck when i try to enter my ship so i log out then i cant log back in so i restart the game and everything is going fine. Then i enter a warzone and at the end of the warzone everyone is just stuck and we cant leave had to shut down the game again.

+1 For Gree Event
+0 For Bounty Hunter event (its a recurring event so its kinda hard to get excited about it)
+1 For GSF event
+1 Casino event
-1 For Rakghoul event no-show (There are people who haven't had the chance to participate in such an event, like me)
-1 For Bolster Op (really? really? REALLY?)

Sunk 15,000 credits on the casino event, but that's okay–it's fake money anyways, and I did win 4 Kingpin tokens in the process, plus countless, countless other Smuggler tokens. It was a good run, even without rewards in the end. Maybe if I had millions of credits like some people I'd keep running until I got rewards. As it is I'll probably do Dailies and then immediately run and blow those credits on Nar Shaddaa.

This event will occur. The comments about "plague eliminated" are an in-game-universe joke: "We eliminated the plague, loyal citizens, do not worry, it will never happen again."

I checked the math on that, and it turns out its a +1.

More people playing ops means more people experiencing incredible content they might otherwise never have been able to, leading to greater player retention. And from what it sounds like, this is only for Story Mode Ops on the group finder. So Ops via the group finder finally becomes a thing, and HM and NiM are not effected (unless you count the fact that more people will achieve higher levels of gearing, making it easier to build groups for the harder modes down the line).

Providing a simpler way for people to get even just a few more end-game commendations will keep more players interested. This is a good move.

They did not mention it in the patch notes, so it is almost certainly just a bug.
