Good question.

As indicated above, we are not planning to have a patch with our maintenance tomorrow and this means a few things:
  • We are not fixing the bug with Daily Area Missions, so those CXP rewards will remain crazy high for the time being.
  • The Umbara Stronghold exploit is still possible. Again, please avoid this exploit as we will be investigating and taken action once addressed.
  • We are unable to extend the "double" event.

Right now it seems likely we will have a patch on Tuesday of next week. If that happens I will let you know the status of the above bullets. We know there is great interest in seeing some more of the double event and we are looking at timing for that.

Thank you again for your patience this past week.

Yup! I am just locking down timing of our maintenance for this month. It may be a day or two but I will have it up this week.

I know most people have asked that we make the inflated heroics the normal rate, which sounds great, but maybe a better idea:
1.) Change ALL heroics (not just the broken ones) to be something like 200 (up from the 75).
2.) For EACH item "featured" in the galactic command for the day, greatly increase the current bonus. The current bonus really isn't worth even changing behavior, whereas having a 20x multiple may be.

This would be better than making the current broken heroics permanent because:
1.) When heroics are featured ALL will be, so we will not crowd too many in the same place and more variety would keep it less likely to get boring.
2.) We would actually have incentive to do different things each day, giving us the chance to see each item as a mini event and actually featured (currently most just ignore what is featured because bonus is too small).

Again along with every patch it effects European prime time. It was good that you did the server restart early in the morning but why cant it be done with every maintenance I mean 5 am gmt will be around midnight in America so each zones prime time is not effected.
