Is there an ETA on the free name change that was said a while back or is that gone?

Zulu Time = GMT

GMT Never changes either and in England we use BST in the summer as a result. For the rest of Europe GMT/BST would be more meaningful as that is what a lot people use as their point of reference when it comes to time zones

Instant fix for their cash-cow. Month and a half long fix for pvp exploits/bugs. Seems legit

Thank you for your patience as we maintain service for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™.
Does this patch address the freezing when installing asset 116? Or do we need to follow the outrageous carpet bomb fix strategy suggested by customer support.

They even suggested to find a mate with a running version game and and copy the whole thing over.. seriously

Not every one in the world has unlimited bandwidth I have 100 Gig per month and I have used 80% of it now. My connection speed is 100meg down 10 meg up but only get 200kb during most of the patch download. I guess alot of people are in similar situations.

I just macro'd ctrl+ 2x U because I'm so sick of that... Pretty pathetic about how long that's been going on for. Oh btw I still can't buy my conqueror shield generator since it's listed as 'undefined'. Still no fix in sight for that one either I suppose.

Frankly, just sticking to GMT would be less confusing to everyone else. Not sure what's so difficult to comprehend about it but using BST, UTC, PST etc etc makes it really difficult for people who do not live in those zones. And there are a fair number of us.

Gree event that was promised to hit between 2.1 and 2.2, that's my guess any way.
