Hey folks,

We will be taking the servers offline on March 28th 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: 28 March 2017
TIME: 4:00 AM PDT / 11:00 GMT - 9:00 AM PDT / 16:00 GMT
VERSION: N/A

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

Seems to be a lot of back end work going on lately. Prepping for server merges I hope.

Really appreciate letting us know ahead of time that the updates are coming. Do have one request though, can it stick to the forums and off the launcher until at least Monday? Or at least make the notice not so much in the way? Have never understood why it was there in the first place actually.

Before it was there, multiple complaints were made on these forums by people stating they were not aware of upcoming maintenance.

Servers need maintenance regularly. As far as preparations, well, there is 5.2 coming in two weeks so it might also be in preparation of that. A new explorable area, the first boss in a new ops, major changes to endgame gearing, something new for pvp, etc.

All in all it looks like 5.2 is a patch meant to stabilise the population and salvage what can be salvaged from the 5.0 debacle. I hope it will be successful but that's another topic.

There is also the point that they've made a lot of changes already since 5.0 and that may cause some backend issues as well.

As for server merges. Well, it may be on the horizon. I don't know, but I sure hope that if it comes to merges that people will get ample warning so they can prepare themselves.
Don't freak out, I'm just here by the grace of a referal. Nothing more.

You never understood why they made announcements on the Launcher??? You can't be serious...right?

It can pop up for a week straight...I'm thrilled they announce it there. There's literally no better place for it to be announced.

Yes, EU still down. Maintenance was scheduled until 1600GMT, then delayed to 1700GMT. It's 1725GMT right now and EU's still not up. What/when/why?
