This is correct. The Lady of Sorrows bonus Mission wasn't really an exploit, but we saw some concerning behavior with that Mission for bots. That is why we held the patch notes until this morning.

Thanks!

That'll be "fixed" when Theron comes back. Meantime, hide it. It's not that big a deal, and I'd rather the bug squashers still at BW focus on bigger ones.

Hey Eric,

it seesms even Bioware's own server status page does not work properly anymore, more precise not as before. I double checked this with this original server status page since our server widget on our guild website (Enjin) does not work anymore since the patch today and shows the server offline while it is in fact online. But the SWTOR server status page does not show the same as before either. It still shows up/down but no population data anymore. Something changed obviously. Any clue? Intended or not? New IP?

Original Server Status page: http://www.swtor.com/server-status

Our page with server widget (worked until the patch today): http://tcf.enjin.com/


Kind regards

Frank/Nal'

Good questions!

This is an intended change so that the server status page matches the in-game interface for server select which we changed a few months ago. With the previous in-game change and now the web change, we ultimately removed two columns:
  • Server population - This column was fairly misleading due to the way in which it generated its value. The value it displayed was the current population relative to the total population cap. This often created situations where servers with more players would actually show as lighter than a less populated server due to its pop relative to its hardware cap. For that reason we removed it altogether.
  • Server type - Since we made the change where a player can be in any instance type, we no longer have specified server types. We similarly removed this column so it wouldn't falsely impact a player's server choice.
If someone was using a widget to get that information from our site previously, they should just need to adjust it for the missing columns.

Hope that clears up any confusion!

Work Around with theron: You can get him from the terminal, I did that with my sorceress at the time of Umbarra as he was the only companion I had with high influence (not anymore learned my lesson lol) but since I had done that I was able to complete things unsaid when my sorceress was mean to Theron when she went back to her pirate p.

My sorc isn't able to even trigger the Andronikus return mission. I'm playing a sorc but Andronikus' return mission simply doesn't exist for my char...maybe due to the fact that I got him back from the Odessen terminal some months ago.

But that obviously hasn't been fixed. The sadest thing about this is not even that I just don't get his return mission (though i'm playing a sorc) the sadest thing is: I don't care anymore.

You have to have completed the storyline through Iokath on your sorc for the alert for Andronikos to trigger.

I do. I have completed everything... KOTFE, KOTET and Iokath. I have done EVERY previous companion alert ( I have them all) and I also did the Umbara and Traitor among the Chiss flashpoint quests. Nevertheless the Andronikus return is not triggered for my sorc.

As mentioned before it's probably due to the fact that I got Andronikus back from the Odessen terminal some months ago.
