Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline on Jul 12th in order to perform back end updates. As there are no client-side changes, there won’t be a version number or download associated with this maintenance.

Details:
DATE: 12 July 2016
TIME: 6:00AM - 9:00AM PDT (1400 - 1700 BST)
VERSION: N/A
DOWNLOAD: N/A

Thank you for your patience as we maintain Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

I'd imagine it might be to compensate for the increased number of players on the starting planets, possibly.

I notice I have serious (60k-400K ms) lag spikes when I'm connected to Jedi Covenant these days, and it's not on my end (usually).

Updating ship visuals and things of that nature would involve client-side updates.

Nuh - probably just running a vacuum cleaner over the heatsinks, to try to get a few extra hours out of the servers
Just like everyone else, here is my friends code , if you sub or re-sub we both get rewarded.

Hopefully this fixes the whole decorative NPCs render issue. Everywhere looks like a ghost town right now.

Players can't see back end updates directly.

Maybe the mysterious stronghold visitors will be fixed? It has been really strange seeing random companions pop up temporarily, especially non-holographic versions of companions I don't even have.

If the bug that prevents the Blood Hunt flashpoint from completing is fixed, I'll celebrate!

I wonder if those are client or server changes.
