On March 18th, all game servers, SWTOR.com, and the launcher will be unavailable while we perform scheduled maintenance. Game Update 2.6.2 will be implemented during this downtime. Details are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, March 18th, 2014
Duration: 7.5 hours
Time: 11:30PM PST on 3/17 (6:30AM GMT) - 7AM PST (2PM GMT)

During maintenance, all updates and additional information will be posted on our Twitter account.

Thank you for your patience as we maintain service for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™.

Wow, haven't seen a 7-hour maintenance in a while...
I think you messed up Daylight Savings Time, the end time should be 2pm GMT, not 3pm GMT. And the Twitter link is still broken.

It's obvious the server droid opted to skip his scheduled weekly maintenance. Personality quirks are emerging and most likely Directive Seven will be reborn.

The timezones are a bit messed up... did you mean Monday 11:30pm PDT (not PST) to Tuesday 7am PDT?

If so, that's Tuesday 6:30am - 2pm GMT. What's there now is 8.5 hours long for GMT.

I'd strongly recommend using timeanddate.com's event planner for getting times right. Essential when planning ops with a group across multiple timezones!

7 Hour Maint. I hope patch notes are quite lengthy but I won't be shocked if it isn't.

I would hope the long time of Maintenance is because the Rakghoul is coming back....

And because Bioware is FINALLY going to fix these laggy servers once and for all.

Nice to see us Aussies get completely screwed over again, its bad enough when it goes off at 8pm, but now it will be off at 4:30pm, nice to know its more important for a handful of americans to play in the morning before, then let Aussies get a chance to play.
