Between downloading and getting preferred status...it took me like 2 days of gaming. Between preferred and subscription...took me another 4-5 days. And then I subbed and all hell breaks loose. Maintenance, patch, two days trying to figure out how to repair the game that was broken by the patch, and as soon as I am back in, couple of hours later extra maintenance. And the next day a hotfix maintenance. Through the last two I am keeping fingers crossed for fear it will mess my login again. Really had agonizing two days fixing it after Tuesday.

But, anyway...this shows that -in a bit of disorganized manner- work is being done. Compared to my previous subscribed MMO (DDO), where there was one maintenance every other month, one patch every semester, bugs remained for months, exploits too...though at least they never got a misfire. What's best? Quick resolution or working resolution? Remains to be seen.

Wow, week made!

Take your time in getting it fixed, SWTOR is worth the weight, more-so after this amazing example of respect for your players.
Agreed! Great to see the updates. Eric, thanks for the effort to keep us informed.

The reward is knowing you did the right thing.

If you see a crime happening and you call the cops you expect to get money for reporting it? It's your civic duty to do right, otherwise you'd be no better than the criminals. Being better human beings than the criminals, that's the reward.

Keith (my boss) and I were talking about this very thing. We certainly want to reward the good (not exploiting and reporting it) over the bad (exploiting). Maybe we can do something like this in the future!

I just imagine everyone waiting around for us to introduce an exploit so everyone can start spamming my inbox and CS with reports to get their reward lol.

I wonder where my Agent will rematerialise. The 15 minute warning came during the HK-47 fight in the Foundry and my team were still in the flashpoint when the servers went down.

I don't get annoyed either, actually.
If I: say something interesting, make you smile/laugh, help you out, profoundly touch your life...
Consider saying thanks with my RAF Link here.

I think a CC grant would be a great "thank you" (and encouragement). You don't need to reward everyone, but the one that leads you to the real issue (most detailed) would certainly be deserving of a 5000 coin reward imo. Maybe offer 100cc to others who help, but I do like the idea of rewarding people who report it.
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
