Yeah... 2 hours until our raid starts... 2 hours, to open crates, wait for light side winning to get +15% on cxp packs, to play the new story, to prepare for the new op and to eat something. Bedtime right after raid ends at 10:30 pm because the clock rings tomorrow morning at 6 am.

So much to do, so little time...

The ones that really have a problem are the European Servers as it is later than that. (I believe like 4 p.m or later)
I work Wed-Saturday 12 hr days so Im off on tuesday .

Tell you what, lets just make it equal in "time spent" to get a BiS piece from PVE and PVP. Lets see currently it takes couple hours to get one if you are lucky, maybe twice needed with OPS, whereas it would take MANY weeks to get one PvP. If it was fair it would be 1 BiS handed out with every PvP weekly. Not all PvEers are whiners because they realize how quick you can gear up with OPS compared to PvP.

So much to do, so little time...
And thats the moment, when SWTOR twitters "need about 2,5 hours more for patching".....so at 9pm youre raidgroup looks like this:
4 people still downloading
2 got problems with launcher after patch
1 decided to go out because "BW won't bring the servers up anyway"
and you decide to change the raid notice to "never raid on patch day" ^^

Don't forget - there will be new CXP boost packs in CM that give a bonus of 100% for 3 hours. If you have CXP packs saved up, it could be worthwhile to pop one of those when you have DvL 15% on before opening the packs and crates. I don't buy any CM consumable items (or gambling packs) but am going to make an exception just this once. This boost doesn't impact disintegration of crate items. If you have a spare 3.5 million lying around, you could also get the Character Perk that adds another 10% bonus.

Aren't these boosts available at a vendor to spend Command Tokens for? I have 5000-6000 left inside of some command stashs, so that wouldn't be the point.

I don't think the vendor ones give 100% bonus; for that you have to spend real money (in the form of CC.)

I really wish they would make that legacy wide instead of per character. With over 14 characters........

All servers but Harbinger are up. WHy? Because do YOU want a bloody reaper online?
