Does anyone know if lockouts get reset after an update? Normally updates are Tuesdays so it doesn't matter, but my group is supposed to do Tos this week and it would suck if we had to do all 4 bosses again Wednesday after clearing them Tuesday...

I apologize for the late notice on this. We are going to delay the launch of Game Update 5.4 by 24 hours. Crisis on Umbara's maintenance will now be on Wednesday, 8/23 at the same time as the originally planned maintenance (5AM - 9AM PDT).

As we do with all updates, we continually test until it goes out the door. From this testing we discovered a critical bug with the Crisis on Umbara Flashpoint. This bug can prevent a substantial amount of gameplay when a player experiences it, from not playing the intro cinematic to not allowing re-entry into the instance. Due to the severity of the bug, we are not comfortable releasing the Game Update in its current state.

I will go ahead and updated the messaging in both this thread and the launcher to reflect the new maintenance window. Again, we do apologize for the late notice and thank you for your patience.

No way. This is the single best part of the patch.

Typical. I was looking forward to getting to play the new flashpoint before going to Gamescom on Wednesday, but you can really rely on Bioware to always let you down. No further comment.

No, raid lockouts do not reset during maintenance, so you'll be fine.

Lockouts will reset as they normally do on Tuesday.

Correct, the ending of Season 8 matches up with the Game Update. It will end when we deploy the update.

As a separate note on timing, the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event will still end tomorrow. That is scheduled ahead of time to end on a specific date/time.

Riiiight.... because everyone would have been perfectly happy if they'd released it on time with a huge game breaking bug right?

As much flack as some people give the devs about bugs, seems you should be glad they caught this one before they launched it. I know I am....

Have fun at Gamescom. The (mostly bug free.... because you know there will be bugs lol) FP will be waiting for you when you get back.

If it was Bethesda they'd have just told "Dave" the blind and deaf tester (only tester) to keep quiet and have released it anyway

So well done Bioware. You earn yourself one point on my Devs/Publishers to not have eliminated when I rise to power chart.

Fortunately I'm not around Wednesday either so it works out just fine for me. Work must intrude.
