Harbinger. I saw Senya's Pike on sale for 400 million and 775 million. I seent it! I saw the normal lightsaber going for 200 million and 300 million. Defiant Vented Lightsabers for 120-150 million credits. Vectron Vertica mounts for 15 million credits. Dathomir Rancor mount go from 20 million credits to 75 million credits in two weeks. There are no justifications for price gouging like these examples. In fact, sky high prices like this turn people off from playing the game. There has to be better ways to make credits besides farming the same Heroics every single day or amount of credits given out for heroics and other things need to be reduced. The GTN must be brought back into reality or it won't bode well for this game.

No it's the smallest demographic as has been stated. There are more Americans playing this American game so in essence they'd patch at the times it's going to affect the most player base the least. How is that hard to understand?? An EU game would patch when EU times are best.
Or how about just go play WoW. When I used to play, they'd drop ALL servers every Tues from like 9-11am est time. Get that, EVERY Tuesday just for maintenance to keep the game running smoothly.

I assure you BW is not choosing to do these times because they're spitting on EU players.

Y'all realize that you're not going to get a response? Tait will just post "Servers are now up!" and close the thread.

Just like every other time this happens.

Then, around 50 minutes before the servers went down:

Last time I checked 50 minutes is less than an hour . . . .

50-50 mill is @@@@@@@ crazy.

Years old bugs, but also recent ones, that appeared out of nowhere and are easy to fix, are COMPLETELY IGNORED!! But when a Cartel Market Item is not working and one that is purchasable is free due to a bug it immediately requires and emergency patch and game downtime!!

Eric, I hope you at least feel very stupid when writing such threads!
C'mon dude, don't shoot the messenger. I'm sure he's not the one who makes these kinds of decisions. He's just the guy who has to post it for us. Treating the people who keep us informed badly just leads to them not informing us at all.

Not to mention this is something easy to fix, a quick patch. Fixing game bugs takes a lot more time and effort. If you've ever been involved in game development you should know that. Everything is a domino effect and for a game as complex as Swtor it's even worse. So yeah, they fix the quick stuff that effects their bottom line because first and foremost they are a business.

Secondly, if you're upset that the item is being taken away don't be. Most games would have banned you for taking advantage of a bug. It's called utilizing an exploit and it allowed you to steal an item you weren't entitled to. Taking the item back and refunding creds is the fairest way to deal with it. Honestly I would have just given users who intentionally exploited the bug a warning or ban.

No one is suggesting that Europeans are not the smallest demographic, but moving it a couple hours earlier would not affect US prime hours, and would also not be a big "screw you" to us in Europe.....Your early morning (when most of you are sleeping), our mid afternoon (when most of us are at work/school/etc) is not that much to ask for those of us who shell out our sub fee every month as well.
