1.4 Ruined my game! Consistant Crashing!!

I have played since Early Release and have had maybe 4 crashes to desktop since then, up until patch 1.4 came out! Now I am crashing to desktop EVERY 2 HOURS!!! I have read the forums and seen how many others are having the same problem!
Now another patch today and still no fix or word!? I have done a Clean Boot and also played game in Administrator mode as well as using the Fix Patcher button. Nothing helps!
Please give us some word that you are looking at this! Everyone is saying it is a memory leak and I checked my taskmanager and it seems to climb steadly till the game crashes. The crashes take place mostly when I am loading a new screen/area or loading into an alt of mine, but also when moving inventory/bank items or crafting/space and even just standing around! This is really RUINING THE GAME FOR ME!

And the Known Issues page was updates TODAY and this problem was not listed in it. But on the first page alone in the Customer Service section of this forum there are 4, FOUR posts about THIS SAME PROBLEM!

Its not our computers!

Just to reiterate OP's point here are some of the threads on this issue - most of which are from the past month. The first one of these is the most comprehensive and most of these links are taken from one of the posts there. This isn't a comprehensive list there's a bunch of other threads I'm sure.

Crashed to desktop since 1.4

Random crashes to desktop

Game Crashes

Game crashes since 1.4

Crashes and load times after 1.4

crashing to desktop since 1.4

CTDs caused by this

RAM use way up

Memory Leaks In SW:TOR

1.4 Memory Leak and other Bugs, bad Performance

I agee that it's a bit odd that this isn't in the known issues list.

its not in the known issues list because EA/Bioware have no idea what they did in 1.4 to bugger this game up and so logically have no idea how to fix it.

I have the same problem on one of my computers with Vista-32, 4GB, ATI 5770. Clean install, not used for anything else than multimedia and games.

5-6 load screens when changing character, or going to/from WZ or groups and the program hangs. Have to ctrl-alt-del back to task manager and shut TOR down manually. Also one service with SWTOR is hanging and have to be shut down.

I can then restart the client without issues but the same thing happens again after 5-6 load screens, aka its accumaltive.

Open up task manager and view your memory usage while playing, I think there is a memory leak and that's what is causing players to crash...especially 32 bit OS.
