Hey everyone!

I wanted to let you know that we will be performing maintenance for Game Update 3.2.1 on Wednesday, May 27th!

Date: Wednesday, 27 May 2015
Time: 1230AM PDT (0730 GMT) - 830AM PDT (1530 GMT)
Version: 3.2.1

You can find the Preliminary Patch Notes here, and final notes will be posted on Tuesday the 26th. If there are any updates during the maintenance period, they will be posted on the SWTOR Twitter account, as the website will be offline.

Thanks!

You should drop in on the OPS forum sometime and read about the feedback regarding Underlurker.

To be fair - "preliminary patch notes" usally means "this is what you're getting - any feed back will be ignored".
In recent months I've seen them go back on a decision to turn the "refer a friend" speeder from a 110% at all levels to a standard adaptable mount, but other than that - we go from preliminary to release without much in the way of change.

Probably, and I was sad to read they do nothing with the SM Underlurker the PUG breaker.

That is still HM content though with the best weapon in the game. It is supposed to be very hard.

I am talking about a storymode boss that players should not have insane problems beating because of bugs.

Just noticed that it's an estimated 8 hour downtime... Is that normal for a patch?

Just saw that after you mentioned it. There are a lot of changes to potentially big files (such as French/German localization files). However, I believe with the current Patcher we won't need to redownload the whole file, it should just edit/add the pieces it needs to.

Chances are, the reason for the long maintenance is the re-grant of the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event achievements. I would guess that, like the 12x XP hotfix script, this has to go through the list of every account, cross-reference with some kind of archive of Achievement information, and add the necessary achievements.

Unlike the 12x XP script, this one will do more than simply test for account type and flip a switch. It will have to grant multiple achievements, and can apply to both Subscribers and non-Subscribers, which (considering how long it took for the 12x XP script to run) would certainly explain the maintenance time.


I don't know for absolute fact if that's the reason, but it probably is.
