Is this upgrade going to improve anything for the user?

Less lag, better graphics, the option for my dynamic combat and more immersive open world experience?

The Clockwork City has been launched in ESO, oh what Iokath could have been, and the Path of Fire launched a month ago in GW2. While the big thing this year for SWTOR appears to be somewhat vague in what it means for the player and taken the place of any significant content for the year. 5.6 is meant to be the biggest update of the year at one op boss, one flashpoint and 2 pvp maps (which are ultimately 2 maps with nothing in them). So it would be nice to see how this investment is going to benefit the end user or customer as it were rather than appear to be a gimmick that doesn't change anything.

Considering the description stating back end maintenance and something to do with their data centers + no form of patch, I don't think so.

I don’t know depending on how much of an upgrade in hardware and software to serers i would think heir be slightly better latency and performance/reliability (due to server optimzation) but not by much

But i would judge it when the 5.5.1 patch is out which updates the client for this upgade

Well, it's certainly a long DT, but it's needed for the server merges.

And yes, I agree with those saying it's disruptive to the european players, but no matter what they do with DT, it would be dirsuptive for some one, so we have to take the bad with the good so to speak. It does really suck, but it's nothing we can do about it.

On October 2nd they posted the roadmap which detailed that there would be an extended maintenance today.
This post was put on the 20th, that is 4 days ago with the exact timing.

And if you were ASSUMING that it would start at the same time but just longer, let me just remind you that the current duration already goes into the prime time of the EU zone. As it will not finish until 7PM for us. Any later would really be unfair.

Learn to read and learn to think please.
Don't freak out, I'm just here by the grace of a referal. Nothing more.

Bioware please be careful during the maintenance today please, I suddenly got the feeling something will go terribly wrong with the hardware updates that will force you to do the server merges way ahead of time

Reminder - Character transfers will be turned off with this maintenance. They will not be turned back on until some point after United Forces which is still TBD (based on testing). The current character transfer sale will also be ending on 10/24.

Details:
DATE: 24 October 2017
TIME: 3:00AM - 10:00AM PDT (1000 - 1700 GMT)
VERSION: N/A

Thank you for your patience as we maintain Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!
