Here's my list of things I hope this emergency patch does!

1. Surprise class balance across the board for classes in PVP
2. Conquest reverted back to before 5.8
3. PVP comms gearing system reinstated
4. Brand new stories that branch off from the original companions adding more companions related to said stories

They are launching 13 new raids, one for each original planet (not counting the starting planets). Dulfy has all the info.

One guess of mine:
They reduce the drop rate of the new rating 240 augment schematics and limit them to master mode altogether.

Well, it's a possibility anyway. Not sure whether they'd actually shut down the servers for that or just wait until next Tuesday.

I am not a PvPer but would that not mean that half the community is nerfed and rage quits? There may not be balance between the advanced classes and specializations at the moment, I cannot be the judge of that, but given that the same character options are available to each player, the game is balanced on the player level. If someone invests their time to play the Über-Class to pwn in PvP, they won't like it if the stop pwning.

Hey all, the drop rate for the schematics is intended and we don't have any plans to lower it unless you tell us otherwise.

You guys know that they drop in solo and veteran mode, and they are not MM-last boss-exclusive, as you said earlier?
