First let me tell you that I've been doing the "Heroic missions" everyday for months now on both my lv 55 chars and I always found them to be fairly easy to complet even without the best Tier7 mods or whatever Tier they are.

Tonight I log in, grab the daily and it strikes me right in the face....the enemies are without a doubt more difficult to defeat. Not sure if somehow BW increased the missions difficulty or nerfed the dmg output of our ships, but I know for sure something happened.

Anyone experienced the same thing?

Edit: Nothing in the patch notes.

I noticed something tonight on one Republic escort Mission; a wall of rock appears with no way past that I could see. Where there used to be an alley, there is now what appears to be a solid wall. Of course, this is my second day back after being away for a long time, so I will watch a vid to see if things were changed before today.

I've encountered a similar issue on the Empire space mission (Taspan Ambush). It's an escort mission and there is now a wall of rock that is unavoidable now. It wasn't there yesterday. Strange...

They know about it. The patch caused a bunch of unintended glitches. As for heroic missions, they're much harder because evidently the power conversion module isn't correctly amplifying blaster fire. So things live longer, and can therefore shoot at you more. It's possible that collision damage also went up. Check the bugs section. They're trying to get a running list of what bugs are encountered in the space missions at the moment.

Just maybe it's....Hitchicker's guide to Galaxy's wall?

This is Syvris evacuation, that moon chunk that becomes a solid rock definitely wasn't there before the patch so it's a new bug.

Both are definitely true. I have done herioc space missions to get from 51 - 55 on all 6 of my 55 lvl characters and up to 53 on another. I space a lot and the syvris does have a big wall in the middle as well. I hope they fix the heroic missions I would hate to lvl the last 2 characters the traditional way.

Oh thank god, I thought I was crazy!! I am 2k away from hyperspace legend and suddenly I cant complete some of the missions and the ones I always did with bonuses are taking multiple tries and I have to completely disregard the bonus stuff.


So, in the mean time, who's up for drinks over on my smugglers ship?

Space missions haven't been directly updated in some time, right? What a weird bug to come up.

Hi everyone,

There are some issues with Space Combat since Game Update 2.3.3. I've made a few posts in the Bug Report Forum, with this being the main one. As you can see from this post, we're investigating the reports now, and that includes damage taken and given not seeming to be correct. We'd very much appreciate your input there, and to ensure communication goes to the same pace, I'm going to close this thread.

Thank you very much!
