It's not entirely their fault. So many of them grew up being brainwashed by Blizzard. We should pity them.

Same old argument.....you complain with us or you are automatically against us and that makes you a bunch of "BW fanbois"

It's getting old...

I like this game.....it requires maintenance.....it is not the end of the world. We all pay for it and that is something you accepted, like it or not, when you subscribed.

If you go under Program Files (x86)>Electronic Arts>BioWare>Star Wars - The Old Republic you will find an application called FixLauncher that should help.

That's 32 hours. 32 hours out of the average of 720 hours we get per month. A day and a half, at best.
You might get 720 hrs on average a month to play but im sure alot of us get a hell of alot less time to actually play. Factor in sleep, average 8hr working day plus lunch break (30mins - 1hr), travel time to and from work, then other commitments such as social, sport and family time i'm sure you would get about a quarter than half of that 720hrs.

On average i get 3-4 days a week where my time is flexible enough to play for about 3hrs at a time if nothing else pops up. 4hr maintenance knocks out 1 whole gaming session for me which im used to as every Oceanic player who's played several MMO's should but when schedule UNSCHEDULED maintenance in Oceanic prime too then 2hrs downtime is a long time

How about, instead, we use facts.

Maintenance periods are usually on Tuesdays. Maintenance periods can last up to 4 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less.

So, that's 4 maintenance periods a month.

Now, it isn't unusual for there to be more maintenance periods after a major patch, or even sometimes a minor patch.

So, let's say there have been 8 maintenance periods over the past month ( I'm not digging up the info for the exact count, but 8 seems a fair number).

How you came up with "We're losing a week each month" is the issue here that is TRULY baffling.
Awesome someone who respects facts.

I wont assume the op is in the Oceanic region as that isnt fact. I am in that region.

I work during the day. I sleep at night. Mainenance windows always start just after i finish work and finish just as i go to bed. 7pm-11 for 4hr maintenance, 7pm-1am for 6hr and tonight i may just squeeze in an hr or two for a 2hr maint.

I have lost a weeks worth of my gameplay in the last month.

There was an Asia Pacific Official release of servers based in the region.

Since this release no changes have been made to the window of maintenance.

There IS a window of time where none of the 3 Officially released regions are affected in their prime times.
11pm Sydney
1am NZ

1pm London
2pm Berlin/Paris

6am LA
9am NY

A normal 4 hr mainenance skips all primetimes. A 6hr maintenance would hit only the first hour of Berlin/Paris.

Nope. I tried that along with the 15 other things the CS recommend . So I'm just hoping the hot fix does the trick.
