Actors and there drama am I right. Probably refusing to leave there trailer.

Hey folks,

Let’s talk about Season 7. We have just finished our full investigation of Season 7 and a few things have happened. All users who were found to be win-trading, hacking, botting, etc. have had their Season 7 ratings wiped out on all of their characters, they have been removed from the leaderboards, and appropriate ToS action has been levied against their account. With those actions being taken, we have gone ahead and sent the top 96 titles to the top performers of Season 7, so be sure to check your mailbox.

We wanted to explain a little bit about why this process delayed the Season 7 rewards. In past seasons we started to get a pretty good lock on how players were cheating. The "how" is important as it enables us to find those players quickly and consistently. Over time as players realize we can track how they are doing this, they change methods and we need to change with them. As we got towards the end of S7, between player reports and some suspicious things in our data, we could see that players were starting to dodge our ability to catch them. We then delayed the top 96 rewards specifically so that we could really deep dive into what was going on.

The “TLDR” of all of this is that through our investigation we were able to lock-on once again to how players are win-trading/cheating and how to identify them. We’ve eliminated them from the top 96 of Season 7 and we will continue to apply this knowledge into Season 8. Again I want to thank all of you for your continued reports of these players.

Thanks everyone.

Hoping for more of the same

Pretty sure you found the real reason for the delay. The traitor whoever he or she is, has been sabotaging the release in order to keep their good name. I can't blame em.

I think the missing companions might also play a part. They're probably holding the solution hostage until the devs write their returns. The characters are having their own little uprising.

I think it's all a ruse, and the real traitor isn't who we think it is. But when they went to change it in the live patch, someone misspelled a word in the line of code and they're having trouble tracking it down.

BW.... take your time and get it as "right" as possible. I'm still working on getting my VERY WELL geared mando past KotET anyway.

OK another day's delay.

I understand why, and I agree with your decision.

My question is this: what kind of half-*^%$d Quality Assurance do you have that only flags up a "show stopper" error with less than 24 hours to go?

If the issue is as big as you say it is, it would under any normal QA testing have been picked up on day one of testing.

Indeed - though I think based on this delay a trailer might be too luxurious. BW can only afford a tent....or maybe a tarpaulin!

I honestly don't understand why this is considered an "event". It's content that you sometime turn on and then sometimes turn off. What's the point of turning it off? There's nothing else happening at the casino when it's off LOL and it serves as a nice credit sink. If anything I would say add more games of chance to the casino on Nar Shaddaa.

I totally agree about the traitor. I have a feeling we're going to find out that the supposed traitor is not a traitor at all. I hope that's the case anyway.

That better be the case! This had better be just another way to add more depth to the character - and the characters romance for those who are romancing them. Otherwise, argh. I think a fair few people would be out otherwise.
