Hey folks,

I just wanted to ensure that all of you saw our announcement yesterday on Twitter. Game Update 5.9.3 will be going live next Wednesday, Sep 26. One additional timing of note is double XP. The event will not be starting right away on launch day. Instead it will start one week later and run for a week. The dates are:
  • 9/26: Game Update 5.9.3
  • 10/2 - 10/9: Double XP
Thanks everyone.

Thanks for the update, Eric. Any ETA on 5.10 though?

Well at least you got round to posting it here (eventually)

Please remember there are a LOT of people who can't abide social media and refuse to use it for a variety of reasons.

So make sure you post all announcements here, social media should be secondary to these forums!

Thanks for the heads up! Looking forward to the double XP week. Like the others mentioned, I appreciate announcements here since I don't do Twitter that much.

Is 5.9.3 just the PvP update or will there be any other content?

Yeah, weird. Glad it got posted here, but, why is this not the first place lol. The actual SWTOR forums is prioritized behind Twitter and other social media outlets? I avoid social media like it's a plague. But. I am probably a rare one.

BW/EA, you will lose more players if you continue to punish PVP and alts.

Speaking as someone who doesn't have a Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram account... I kind of doubt that there are all that many of us among the player base or potential player base. I'm willing to bet their social media posts reach the vast majority of the audience (and significantly more than the Forums do).

That being said, setting up "post all updates on Twitter, Facebook, and the Forum" as the standard operating procedure (or even an automated process) should be such a simple thing to implement that it seems like a no-brainer.

Please consider clarifying how exactly Tier 5 will be obtainable. There's no point in leveling alts in Double XP week if the grind will be a new nightmare. Leveling CXP would be pointless too if the crafting system ignores command levels.
