Interesting. A boolean with a value of 1(or 0). Maybe you just found the problem

Hey folks,

After further investigation, we unfortunately will be unable to address the issues with the Rakghoul Plague before the event expires on Tuesday. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

For those who were looking to run the Rakghoul event, it is scheduled to return on January 12th. Thanks everyone.

None of that is true when the event isn't running and you can clearly observe that if the event ends while you're logged out in the caverns.

So by your example, rakghoul_event_tatooine *IS* set to 1.

Therefore, maybe the problem is more complex than a bunch of armchair developers seem to think it is.
How about they tell us how complex it is? For example:

This is so complex it is going take us a few days to a week to fix.

OR

This is so complex it is going take us a few weeks or a month to fix.

OR

This is so complex, and it is the holiday season, and the staff all got fired, and we don't care anyway, that we have no idea when we are going to bother fixing it.

He beat me by 2 minutes....nevermind.

Thank you for the update, even though it sucks.

Thanks for the update Eric. Is it possible to get a make up week in before chapter 10 hits?

Bad news for those who were looking forward to it, Eric.
Me personally, I'd have had to force myself to do the whole thing again after doing it so recently, so it doesn't affect me much.

I'm glad to hear it'll be back in less than a month though! (My energy for doing it again should be renewed by then )
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!

Wow...locking a companion behind a broken event is kinda sketchy eric...
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Well, Hopefully by that time on January 12, 2016 that the bugs will be address and fixed. This is one reason why I have not even started my KOTFE experience because we have way to many buggs and loosing any of my companions would be devastating. The bugs have literally over-taken this game to make it even remotely fun anymore. Its just a grind with no new content like walking zombies. Thanks Bioware you truly did it this time.

I really think the problem may be running multiple events at the same time. Each requires lines of coding and in this case Life Day and Rakghoul may be using lines that conflict with each other. (That may be why we haven't seen this problem before.) So to track down all the conflicts, and recode it would require a great deal of work.

Ugh, that's really unfortunate, especially considering that "look at all the Events we have going on this December!" was kind of the thing BW was trying to push for the month as we wait for Chapter X.

They've got to be having a "when it rains, it pours" time over there, between this and the server issues / rollback.

Good point there! I was wondering why they were planning on having two events running at the same time.
