If you think the bonus isn't working, please let me know what server you are on and what zone you were in at the time.

Thanks!

Huh? What.. did the code that provided the XP bonus display bar self-destruct at midnight last night????

But I appreciate that you gave us an heads-up BEFORE the usual suspects took a flame thrower to the forum. Of course they won't read this and will still wield flame throwers, but that's a different issue entirely.

I suspect this has to do with them not wanting to push a patch out (due to time/money/QA costs) than anything else.

It's easier to just patch the server, than the client.

They already stated the numbers have been adjusted so that you would be earning cxp around the same amount as during the event. They also adjusted the boosts as per the patch notes to cover all levels for new cxp boosts they now stack unlike before. So you would be earning cxp at the same or even more so then what the event offered.

Xp is another matter and honestly leveling was already fast enough as it is you don't need a xp boost to level.

Also you should never expect it to last. Same thing when they did the 12xp boost prior to 4.0 release, they removed it because they already made leveling faster in 4.0 to compensate. Same complaints rolled in that it should stay and it didn't.

Won't be surprised if they do a double xp / cxp event for a week every so often in the future but that's the most you will get.

The event makes those of us who do PVP/GSF and character leveling tolerable. Thank you for extending that.

Now let me get back to reading this
Quote:
Developer BioWare Austin is said to be working on a new “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” game. Now, an industry insider has added fuel to the flame by stating that the developer is doing exactly just that.

This all started with game journalist Liam Robertson on his Patreon-exclusive podcast. During the said podcast, Robertson said that BioWare Austin is now exclusively working on “Star Wars” games for the indefinite future.

“What they’re currently working on right now — and I have this on good authority — is a sort of remake/revival of ‘Knights of the Old Republic,’” Robertson said, according to Game Rant. “I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now.”

Robertson also said that BioWare will redo the game saying that the developer is “wiping the slate clean.” The developer is apparently doing this so that the new “Knights of the Old Republic” will fit in nicely into the new “Star Wars” canon established by Disney after it acquired the franchise.

The game journalist admitted that he doesn’t really know how the game will end up in terms of continuity since BioWare originally started developing the game as a revival/remake. But now, it does seem like the game will be “its own thing.” Finally, Robertson firmly said that BioWare is prototyping the new “Knights of the Old Republic.”

Eric, mission terminals are showing pre-event levels for CXP rewards (i.e. dailies show 25 CXP, etc) on Harbinger. Is this intentional/known?

As for actual rates I just got 1800-ish for a regs warzone loss, as a data point.

I'm not seeing adjusted experience levels in the mission log. I haven't completed any missions yet, but it would certainly appear that there is no bonus being applied. Numbers aren't supposed to lie, are they? =)
