Hey folks,

Game Update 5.10.3 is being delayed by one week to Tuesday, June 4th. As we were in the final stages of testing and preparation for launch we discovered a critical bug that we need to take the time to address before going live. For context, the issue is that a large portion of combat animations simply stopped working. Obviously, that's a pretty big deal! We are digging into whether it is a systemic change that caused it or just a bad build/version. Either way we want to take the extra week to ensure that we have time to fully understand why this is happening and get it resolved.

This will cause a few timing changes on our end, which makes this a great chance to share those details with you!
  • Since it's brand new, we will run the Pirate Incursion event twice in a row, from June 4th - 11th and June 11th - 18th.
  • Nar Shaddaa Nightlife will be returning from June 18th – July 30th.
  • Double XP will run from June 11th - 18th.
  • We were planning to do our first Onslaught livestream next Thursday, May 30th, where we would discuss Spoils of War! We are still on track for this to happen and so look for that stream next week. We will let you know if anything changes.

Thanks everyone. We never want to delay an update if we can avoid it but certainly the animation issues are not acceptable to go live with and so we are going to take the necessary time to get them resolved.

I appreciate the heads up. Looks like I will miss a part of this due to taking care of some family matters. But this gets the community one step closer to the main event !

Much appreciated !!

Thank You
Best Regards

Thanks for letting us know - we are kinda used to this sort of delay now. Maybe its time we build the 1 week delay into the expected release date from now on. So, I'll start you off and I warmly look forward to 6.0 on the 1st week of October.

Joking aside though, yeah its important that we get it delivered as unbroken as possible.

Can you tease us some info we don't know about 6.0 yet as a consolation for not getting this release on time?!

Good news that the issues are being sorted before it's launched. My signature will be a chaotic mess if I have to troll you in it about bugs!

Double checked with the team and it will not be GSF.

I think I'd be more surprised if this hadn't gotten delayed.

Thank you for informing us on the details.

It is indeed better to delay patches than breaking the game. ^^

Though i wonder what caused it. Might your engineers be trying to fix the desync issues and a bug slipped through? Or have they became so rampant that they catched up with more animations? Whatever the case, i hope everything is fixed.

Looking forward to that 30th live stream! Though i'm personally more excited to see the class changes.

Will there be a explanation of how gearing and how to acquire the gear system will work? Since a lot of the current currencies are being deleted and traded for credits, how is it changing? Or is it more "still trying to figure it out" stage? Or will that explanation come in the written blogs and not in the livestream? Honestly, I don't care either way, as long as we get the info.
I love Star Wars.

There is a ton of information coming in that stream! We are working on a blog to go out alongside it as well in case you miss it.
