A heads up. This is so bad that you can be in cover and have other people leap to you because of the lag.

Now I can’t even load up specific characters when I swap. The screen just gets stuck in an never ending load screen with a the blue wheel spinning.

This really has been one of the worst double XP events. Full of lag and now bugs too. It makes long time players not want to stick around. Imagine how new or returning players feel when they experience these problems. They take one look and go “no thanks”.

There needs to be more than just a msg saying you are aware of it. Maybe an apology of sorts and promise to do better and offer a compensation double XP week before the end of this month or the first week of the next.

Confidence is low and dropping.

Thanks for letting us know Eric.

I do want to leave some of my feedback. That is to say that performance is paramount for the success of the game. While i like the conquest changes, they are not worth the stability of the game. Heck, we were already having problems with desynch in warzones and low fps on Ossus World bosses.
I would recommend putting focus on something like updating the client to 64bit since it will most likely translate in better performance for the game. I think even if this translates on delays on content, it is far more important to have combat that feels fluid and responsive. At the end of the day, that is why people play the game.

I hope you mean that you will "pass those details on", because there's a difference.

Don't know if this is a lag issue, or something new, but i can't quick travel to my stronghold, or fleet. This is on SF .
No Idea if people use these, but if so, here's my referral link

I suffer from incredible lag at the best of time (Go Aussie Internet), so it took me a while to realize "OH, this isn't my lag"
when my partner in NZ was getting kicked and they never have lag issues.
Good to know its at least known by the crew.
Hope the game hasn't broken too hard

Same here - invisible Walls, no transport to anythere, no abilities can be activated, no mount.
Except you do this in the first seconds after login.

Edit: Strange enough, Dantooine seams to be working fine.

Still big lag on Darth Malgus.

If this have any relation to the calculation of Conquest points from XP, i would highly urge you to reconsider your decision to calculate new Galactic Renown points also from XP.
If this high lag happened with launch of 6.0 many new players and returning player when they see how unplayable game is will quit and never come back and also spread bad review of game.

Also changing conquest points to be calculated from XP doesn't make much sens, old way was better, also this is change that wasn't discussed with community(at least i didn't notice) it was only announced with all news for 6.0. and immediately implemented.

So best thing would be to revert conquest to how it was, and calculate Galactic Renown points like you now calculate CXP. Calculating both or even triple(XP + Conquest + Galactic Renown) at same time after each action/kill will always make more stress on servers especially when there are many people logged on like when are new events, new content, launch of 6.0 etc.

Please consider this if not now at least for launch of 6.0, only thing worse then not having new content is not being able to play any content.
