Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline on Wednesday, November 8th in order to apply United Forces. The website will also be unavailable during this time.

Details:
DATE: 8 November 2017
TIME: 1:00AM - 1:00PM PST (0900 - 2100 UTC) (Note that this maintenance will likely take at least 12 hours. Monitor social media for updates on maintenance timing.)
VERSION: 5.5.1 United Forces

Patch Notes will be available on Tuesday, here.

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

Details:
DATUM: 8. November 2017
ZEIT: 1000Uhr MESZ bis 2200Uhr MESZ
VERSION: 5.5.1

Danke für eure Geduld, während wir die Dienste für Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ aktualisieren.

And again... no Summer Time in Europe. Now is "Central European Time" (CET).
Incorrect: "10:00 Uhr MESZ bis 22:00 Uhr MESZ"
Correct: "10:00 Uhr MEZ bis 22:00 Uhr MEZ"

Additional information:
"Central European Summer Time" (CEST) = "Mitteleuropäische Sommerzeit" (MESZ)
"Central European Time" (CET) = "Mitteleuropäische Zeit" (MEZ)

Hey, will the patch be available to download when the maintenance start or will we have to wait a bit for that ?
Just so I know if I can boot the launcher before going to work in the morning.
Yes, I'm a lazy person, I completely know it.

1:00AM - 1:00PM PST = 0800 - 2000 UTC/GMT. Therefore 0900 - 2100 UTC = 2:00AM - 2:00PM PST.
Says so here https://savvytime.com/converter/pst
May I kindly ask which is the actual correct time? Usually you guys go by your own PST time, so I would assume that 1:00AM - 1:00PM PST which in actual fact is 0800 - 2000 UTC/GMT would be correct. However can this be confirmed?

Eric, i really hope to God above, that things get fixed, and that everything goes well. I think most of us would be willing to go for a couple weeks of downtime, as long as long lasting /bugs got fixed and everyone would get a good level Ping and Latency with their connections for everyone.

May the Real Force be with you all.

@Team_Porsche: The converter works correctly, but you made a mistake.
- "Add Time Zone, City or Town": Enter "London" here
- "PST Time": Enter 1:00 AM
- Result: London Time = 9:00 AM
- "Pacific Standard Time" (PST) is UTC-8. 8 hours different to UTC.

"I think most of us would be willing to go for a couple weeks of downtime" LOL what? You don't really know this player base do you? Look at all the complaining and outrage their was when a recent patch was down an extra few hours. There is no way this game could survive a few weeks of downtime.
