How "unexpected" ..... At this point we can't trust their release dates for anything ....

Next thrusday they will say we had to postpone it again due to some minor bugs. Not sure how many issues can ONE flashpoint have. The disappointment will be no less than it was with Coppero or Umbara.

Seeing as we don't get bug fixes, and each content patch has bugs, it's better if some actual QA happens before release. So the delay isn't a bad thing.
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.

The plan was when we released 5.9, so I have no problem with extending the deadline a bit longer. But, once we take the servers down on the 3rd of May, the extension ends.

Thanks,

As I wrote before: It all depends when the Anthem-intern is coming to the Swtor office. Before 5.8 he signed off ill on Thursday and Friday, thus the delay. This time, he is needed on Monday at the Anthem office (Powerpoint presentation), thus the delay.

Originally, I meant it as a bad joke. Nowadays, I almost believe it.
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free 10 x inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

Better to take extra days, than releasing an unfinished update.
Good luck with this. I'm looking forward to the update, I hope my motivation will return with it

One key learning this past year is not to release a Game Update if its not ready. We pushed really hard to be ready for next Tuesday, but we uncovered a couple of items we want resolved. To do that, we need a bit more time including this weekend to make sure our fixes are solid and ensure you have the highest quality play experience possible.

We decided to give ourselves an extra couple days and release Game Update 5.9: The Nathema Conspiracy on Thursday, May 3, 2018. Just in time for May the 4th!

Also, we will be providing a minor update on May 22 (Game Update 5.9.1) which includes the Nar Shaddaa Night Life event. Im also working on a new Roadmap that provides you with all the details of our upcoming Summer events and overall direction for the remainder of this year. Ill keep you updated on progress and let you know when well post it on our website.

Thanks for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic!

Keith---
Thank you for the heads up. I admit I was very eagerly looking forward to the update on 5/1, but I appreciate that things happen. And, while I don't expect a response, I can't resist: When you say "other summer events," does that mean Dark v. Light II?

I'm sad that Theron's return is delayed, I'm excited to see him back again and what will happen, but I guess what's a couple more days. It seems par for the course here anyway. Makes me wonder though, if there will be anything for May the 4th or if this is it?
Well, I guess this is it, your Highnessness. So long!
