Hey folks,

The team has made the decision to delay the launch of Game Update 5.9.3 to next Tuesday, October 2nd. We have a handful of known issues that we are tracking for the Update which we want to address before it goes live. Unfortunately, we were unable to get them fixed in time for our planned release date tomorrow.

Some of the issues we are seeing include:
  • An issue with our Conquest scheduling which will stop it from proceeding as intended.
  • The interface for holocalls not displaying properly.
  • The preview window not activating properly for a variety of item types.

In each one of these instances there is a workaround which would not actually block gameplay. Still, if we can avoid those issues being live we would like to. We are going to take the extra time to address these issues to give you the best 5.9.3 we can. I will provide further updates as we move towards next week. Double XP will also move back one week to 10/9 - 10/16. Thank you all for your understanding and we apologize for the late notice.

OK, but these 11th hour movements are getting a bit too frequent. Just smells of an inability to manage a delivery.

Give them a break, they only have a skeleton staff that's running double shifts.

Will that cause the double Xp event to be moved or will that still be on track for the Oct 2?

Why would you move back the Double XP though?

Well thanks for the update, better to leave it time to properly patch those issues than to rush it.
