Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline on Tuesday, May 16th 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. SWTOR.com will also be down during this time.

Details:
DATE: 16 May 2017
TIME: 5:00AM - 9:00AM PDT (1200 - 1600 GMT)
VERSION: N/A

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

*** BIOWARE is every Tuesday to be a maintenance day with no patch or content or class balance.

Would be nice, IF they could fix the bugs/probs. Them going for month or two between bringing servers down in the past was crazy for an MMO.
Should do like WoW. Down every Tues for maintenance & server resets. Clears up the bugs & issues.

Why can't we take down servers earlier like we did in the past. Here is a example of one maintenance back in 2013. I think these were so much more convenient to your player base.


On April 24th, all game servers, SWTOR.com, and the launcher will be unavailable as we perform scheduled maintenance. Game Update 2.0.1 will be implemented during this downtime. Details are as follows:

Date: Wednesday April 24th, 2013
Duration: 5 hours
Time: 2AM PDT (9AM GMT) to 7AM PDT (2PM GMT)

Would you know it that was one of my reasons for cancelling the sub? Took up my WHOLE Aussie evening. So. Like. No. For the love of God NO! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. I miss central *standard* time because it meant 12am my time rather than 10 pm. But I can handle 10pm. Not going to pay for a game that's always down on Tuesday evening from 5pm until whenever. It was usually midnight. So no. Please no. I can't reiterate no enough. And yes I put that in the reason you're leaving space.

Maybe they are trying to recreate the Harbringer database corrution issue on all servers this time.
