Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline on December 16th in order to apply Game Update 5.0.1a. The website will also be unavailable during this time.

Details:

TIME: 7AM PST - 9AM PST (1500 GMT - 1700 GMT)

Patch Notes:
  • It was recently discovered that snow is cold. Snowballs in the Life Day Event will now properly cool down the Overheated Droids spread around the Galaxy.
  • All NPCs can now be targeted by Snowballs during the Life Day Event.
  • Theron Shan will no longer appear hidden during Chapter 1 and Chapter 6 of Knights of the Eternal Throne.

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

And maybe set the in-game snow ball tosser to the same cooldown as the cash shop cannon - snowball is 15 seconds, cash shop cannon is 7 seconds.

Please let us continue to target NPCs after the Life Day Event, no need to put any more effort into disabling it again.

Move inventory tabs back to the bottom!

Thank you guys,your patch broke my game lol. But in seriousness i have that dreaded quick play mode screen that wont go away no matter what i do outside of reinstalling completely which basically will kill me in game because of raid obligations and other stuff. Any suggestions outside of full redownload would be great.TY

This is the same as every Year, there is and have been an advantage for the shop cannon.
History is on the move, Captain. Those who cannot keep up will be left behind, to watch from a distance. And those who stand in our way will not watch at all.

Is there a plan to bring the snowball cannon back to the CM or vendor? I know there are some tough issues with bringing it back but I would like to know. Will the current ones in game be modified in any way?
