***Major Issue***
This became very apparent when doing S&V 16 Man HM Boss 7 Dread Master Styrak
*Constantly tanks were reporting the dragon spit was not rendering.... (We used sorc pulls to save tanks)
*Repeatedly members would report rendering issue right after being returned from a nightmare. The raid wiping issue was the 8 force ghosts not rendering for some players. Trying to get in Melee range to prevent obliterate on a mob that has not rendered is a major issue.
*After multiple issue all having to do with things not rendering during the fight we finally killed the Dread Master after about the 5th attempt. We could have one shot it if we didn't have all these problem across 10 of our 16 people in the raid.

Not rendering boss mechanics for 45 seconds is game breaking. please fix.

I've had adds not show up on my screen. Long loading times. Ability lag. Mailboxes, GTN terminals, etc not showing up on the fleet for minutes. Framerate issues that make the game borderline unplayable.

Prior to patch 2.1, I almost always had great performance. The difference is really insane.

Basically it was a cluster*****
More or less, what these people said.

Yeah i was hit with the same thing too. Have recently done a fresh OS/SWTOR install and still the same.

A game i was running perfectly fine in the highest settings at release in 2011 has got progressively worse performance wise and im starting to lose all hope after all the team is smaller now...

I could go on and be even more negative and rude but i wont. Unsubbed until patch notes contain even a hint of optimization over "heres the armor from swtor videos released in 2008 for x ammount of coins"...

I totally agree, before patch 2.1 was released my game performance was very good, but now its terrible low, sometimes the loading screenshot doesn´t show the image, the hud is buggy an sometimes doesn´t charge and force me to click Ctr+U, and so on. I hope this problems get an answer or better yet GET FIXED!

The reason the above post annoys me is because ppl like this guy above presume to speak on my behalf (i.e. vast majority of players) whereas in fact I am having no issue whatsoever.

^^Link to my system.

In most cases, people who are having performance problems either run the game on non-overclocked CPUS, or low-end CPUs and/or low end GPUs.
"this guy above presume to speak on my behalf (i.e. vast majority of players)" Doesnt that mean you are now speaking on behalf of "a vast majority of players by stating he is speaking on your behalf you effectively claim to belong to that vast majority and by not considering that you might be the minority on whose behalf he is not speaking
let's assume I am 1 of the vast majority, I agree the game has a lot of issues that werent there before last patch, most noptably; random crash to desktop, at least once or twice an hour, and at least 1 or 2 BSOD's a day, only when I play SWTOR
Played WoW a week ago for few days, no crashes, no BSOD's

I also have noticed a difference since patch 2.1. Most noticeable when effects are cast (like Gunslinger's AOE for example). The sounds are louder and in pretty much bad quality, on top of that the FPS is lower. Before 2.1 this was all fine on my end.

So I'm saying it's not just graphics, but sounds too. Want an example? Clear the oasis infiltration to hear a loud BANG. It makes people deaf.

2.1 definitely has caused a significant increase in load times. I have not had any problems in combat, other than in PvP occasionally. But load in times are significantly worse after 2.1.

Also it is really annoying to have to wait for mailboxes and mission terminals to show up several seconds after I walk over to them.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

I am also experience the same exact issues that everyone has listed here. Please fix it EA.

Prior to 2.1, only zoning was an once in a while problem. Now it is much much more debilitating.

EA, how come I do not see all of what is contained in this thread in the updated bug report? Rendering is a huge problem right now. For example, as other people have stated, I can be grouped up and only see half of the targets and none of my companions. I was trying to call off the attack because of this issue but thankfully everything started to appear and were able to finish without any more glitches or any deaths.

I am about to go back to LOTRO and Fallout New Vegas, maybe Train Simulator 2013 if this frustrating problem is not fixed.
