Couldnt we get the patchnotes earlier?

I mean, a few days before, not literally the day before.

ROFL, there's still class story progression bugs left in there since......what? Launch. I doubt they'll fix that.

I strongly suspect they only release notes the day before is so they can have the weekend off from people moaning, they've already given us (via "insiders") what class changes are coming anyway.

Yeah, would be nice. Question is, how late they bring lastest changes and last miute bug fixes before the patch build, deployment test, etc. And doubtful they're gonna provide details during w-end and unlikely they'll be willing to do that on Friday, so it leaves only Monday - D-1 before the patch

Probably stuff like checking for spelling errors and reading the entire patch notes etc!

Or so I would assume.
Hairy Co-pilot.

I have all 6 strongholds unlocked.... will I be able to "expand your command with a new Stronghold, the Umbara Mobile Base!" without turning off one of my current strongholds?
Chancellor Keith has ordered construction of New Mega Servers. 5 servers to Rule them ALL. Rebels Beware!
We had our New Hope chapter in SWTOR development it seems now is the time for E(A)mpire Strikes Back or will there will be Return of The Jedi?

Hey folks,

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.
