This would likely lead to EU servers being down right now for the fixt, since they'd have been patched and failed earlier, and they would possibly have not patched the US servers and just let them play 5.4 until they new 5.4a was working.
It seems it might still screw with the EU playerbase, heh.

Always wondered why they don't do rolling upgrades. I can see a reason against it with the new expansions, of course, since you probably can't have some people have earlier access than others, but with the patches, I really don't see a reason against it. Unless they all have a shared backend database that can't take it...Impossible to say without knowing their architecture

A brief update whether everything is on track would be great to ease our minds ^_^ a brief update whether we could get the Bright Yellow Eyes appearance option be made available in character designer for Twi'lek and other species as compensation would be even better!
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.
Here is my referral link. Click it and we'll both get nice things!

I don't know where you work but I can tell you one thing that you would not survive one release weekend where I do.

Do not release another update without proper testing. Why rush?

Next time.. tell us the servers wont come back online today.

This delay 1 more hour every hour is annoying as hell.

Leave that stuff to air-plains and <insert other douche/turd>.

Sure thing. Original ETA is still holding true. We are definitely getting closer and all of our testing is going well!

Everyone's so greedy on here. You lost less than $1 worth of sub, poor you. Stop asking for free crap that would just require them to do more work. I just want the servers back up.
