Thanks, Eric. I'm a little concerned about how this latest patch will interact with whatever we have on our harddrives. Some of us have one version and I guess some another. I am hoping that the next one will simply negate BOTH versions and replace the files with whatever you guys are testing now, yes?

Initial testing of the fix is looking very promising. The strange issues that you saw (such as missing components on the interface) are not present and everything appears to be working as it should once again. This is not a guarantee as we haven't checked everything, but it is a great start.

With that in mind, we have begun the process of taking the fixed patch and moving it to the live servers. This process will take around 2 hours. Then, we need to verify that everything remained stable and is still working as intended.

Assuming everything goes well, we are hopeful that the servers will be live again in around 3 hours from now. I will pass on updated information as soon as I have it. Thank you everyone for your patience today.

Three hours? Nooo... so that was the entire European prime time gone T-T ah well, it must be even worse for you guys and gals over there so I shouldn't complain. I wish you a lot of goodluck and hope things will work out well for you!

P.s. as compensation... make the Bright Yellow Eyes option available for Twi'lek too!
For too long have we been forced to remain away from our glorious Sith Empire or beloved Galactic Republic. It's therefore imperative that in the near future we get the choice to return to our original factions and abandon the abomination that is the Eternal Alliance.

Splendid. Well, good luck with that. For us in the EU, the day is done with that, I would say. Fair enough.

Still doesn't piss me off as much as the codes, though. That is the part that actually makes me want to quit.

Exactly. If I am going to crucify someone, I want to be sure I have the right person. I don't know how the news works in Germany, but in the States whenever someone is accused of a crime the media jumps all over them...guilty until proven innocent (and sometimes still treated as guilty). Same when I was in the Navy. I didn't just hand out negative counseling sheets to people. I wanted to be sure I had the right person before doing something that could hurt their career. I'll gladly riot and storm the castle, but only once I have the information I need to be sure it is the right thing to do and that I am at the right place.

Yup. But since it's 2330 and I've got to be up at 0500 I guess I'll need to stagger to my 'puter and start DLing the patch. Fingers crossed that it's there when I get up.
