when the codes came up i was so happy until none worked ones again to slow maybe more luck next time
So, why don't collect the data you need from the "nests" of Tauntaun babies? Or why do you not buy the pet off of the vendor? I have not played since 2012 but have got a ride from the "nests" already

I think every account that is and has posted in this thread today deserves a new mount out of the new Cartel Pack or something worth while like that. Or a few million credits.......

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. Here the media isn't quite as...err...enthusiastic and there is a bit more privacy extended to the accused but people is people.

I bet the folks at BW are wishing they'd just left that CXP alone right about now. Heh

It's like being at a car dealership and getting your car fixed -- if something unexpected pops up in a repair, they give a heads up. It doesn't make things go faster, but the wait is put into perspective.

Customer service is about perspective.

Three hours ago we were told two, and now we are told it will be three. That's a massive, four hour extension.

Oh, components aren't showing up on the HUD -- ah, yeah, this isn't just fixing some little part of the game that I'm not going to mess with, it's a major thing. Okay - go fix it.
2 hours ago he said they would start testing in 2 hours and there was no ETA on a fix, to use your comparison, that would be like a mechanic coming out to tell you "so we found the problem, but we don't know what to do about it"

Thank-you Eric for keeping us in the loop as best you can & for being smart enough to not bother trying to give time estimates because even I know you do that & someone's going to BMC when it can't be met because one correction caused a cascade failure elsewhere. Here's to hoping the dev's are able to correct the code causing the unanticipated PITA issues without losing DAYS of game time. Correcting code is never very simple, especially when more then one programmer has been involved in a project that's ongoing over several years, making corrections, adding features, ect . . .

All of that increases potentially problematic interactions between different lines of code exponentially. The fact that even with the glitches, bugs & outright critical crashes that have occurred over the years Bioware has kept this game functional & mostly fun has earned my respect. Especially when you consider there are far more serious situations going on irl right now (like the Flooding in Texas, ect) we really don't have anything serious to ***** about when this game encounters the occasional performance error that Bioware Dev's work their Assets off trying to correct in a timely manner.

Add in the fact that Eric has been doing regular updates to inform us on how things are or are not progress, then I have nothing but respect. Especially in the face of the rather ungrateful, whiny & self-entitled slime sucking twatwuffles whom I'm sure make Eric & their fellow Community reps wonder just how old some of the players are in the forums & why their parents even let them have a computer (supervised or not) nvm this game!

Thank-you to all of the Bioware staff working to keep us in formed & fixing this current issue so we can return to gaming. Pay as much attention to the ones whom are acting like self-entitled slime suckers as you would to a flake of dander blowing off your friend's head!

My understanding is that you will receive a small patch if you patched already this morning (or a slightly larger one if you didn't). No full downloads or anything crazy. I will triple check though.

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.
