The answer is now in this thread behind those spoiler tags. =)

I wasn't really all that troubled by the layout, I simply used the map and was able to deduce my way from the rooms' names/functions.

The only somewhat obscure thing was doing the bonus mission to get into the server room... took me ages to find a certain interactable object that finally enabled me to get it done. =D

I guess the main reason for the number of enemies when in a Walker is simply that this is the best way to demonstrate just how much more powerful you now are because of the Walker... if it were just 3-4 silver mobs, I reckon any well-equipped DD could take them out about as fast if not faster (due to the heavy Walker abilities-cooldown) as a Walker... but with those big groups, and sometimes multiple waves of them in short order, it really demonstrates the destructive power a single Walker can bring to bear in the hands of a skilled pilot.
Yeah, I don't mind the large groups of mobs. I mind that there's so many of those groups.
Regardless, I still think it's a fun idea, and I wish it had been implemented just slightly differently.

Thank you for your understanding!
The servers are still offline for me.
Do you have any current or additional information about this maintenance?

Hey folks!

All servers are now live! Let's talk about why we did this quick maintenance. The Planetary Missions button in Galactic Command has had its functionality turned off to address a bug. The intent is to address the underlying issue and turn the functionality back on during our launch maintenance on Friday.

The reason we made this change is a bug where if someone pressed the Planetary Mission button there was a chance it could automatically complete some Missions. Meaning that by simply pressing the button, they could receive CXP. Additionally if someone declined the pop-up they would receive a new set of Missions which could continue this effect.

The actual effect of this bug is fairly minimal as it only impacted a limited amount of Planetary Missions. We are not taking action against individuals who experienced this bug. I also want to thank everyone for being discrete about the nature of this bug as we received quite a lot of personal messages indicating what was happening. That allowed us to isolate and address the issue quickly.

Thanks everyone!

And bioware could simply disable it too. I did disable it on my desktop many moons ago, but I play on my laptop now and haven't thought about it since then.

But of course...blame anyone but the company who puts out a product with that kind of crap in it....and they'll keep doing things like that. Or do companies just spontaneously do stuff because no one tells them or complains?

No problem, always happy to report exploits. Also glad to hear you won't sanction players since a lot of my guildies accidentally clicked the button and were wondering why they auto-completed the quests.
