Eww, and I thought they smelled bad on the outside.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

So as typical, we should see a tremendous decrease in lag spikes associated with Patch releases? Woohoo!!!!!!

Seriously though it has almost become a joke as the cycle is this:

1. BW releases a patch, lag spikes jump all over the place regardless of the system you use. Inserts about 2 or 3 additional bugs. Maybe 1 annoying long term bug gets fixed.
2. Patch X.X.1 gets released, fixing about 50% of the lag spikes and 1 of the average 2 bugs from patch X.X.0 then makes a new bug.
2a. From here there is a bout a 50/50 split an emergency patch will be released within 1 to 3 days of either the X.X.1 or X.X.2 patch.
3. Patch X.X.2 is released fixing the previous bugs from X.X.0, but not the bug from X.X.1, and lag spikes diminish to levels of 'normal'.
4. Game stabilizes on patch. X.X.3 but that only lasts about 2 to 3 weeks until they release patch X.(X+1).0 and the cycle starts all over again.

I get the bug aspect - literally every system is 'unique' in the combination of versions of systems, conflicting programs, and preferences. I totally understand and it happens especially if fix A solves my issues, but generates problems for system B. It's the lag that annoys the every living heck out of me. I mean literally each patch the server lag goes to hell and I wait for the patch Gods to deliver thy wishes of a fix. Then the GM Copy-N-Paste (FYI - I so want that GM name if I ever am a GM of a online game) blames the internet, the internet backbone, your ISP, and your computer for the issues, but its never ever ever them. However, its funny we can open YouTube videos to see how to fix the lag when spiking, talk on the P2P communication program of your choice, surf the net, get email, etc. but its my computers connection to the net that is the issue....

Felt like doing my complain sharing today. Hope you enjoyed.

Can't wait for miner to dig out traditional Jedi robes out of there.
Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Don't let your artists' work go to waste, Bioware

Will never happen. Jedi Robes lack the necessary visible e-under bewbs and would be inappropriate for anyone rp'ing mardi gras.

On another note......how are the patch notes not posted at the same time as the announcement? It's the only mmo I've ever played that doesn't have them ready by now. My guess would be BW still has no idea what they're releasing either. It'd explain a lot......

For how long have you been telling yourself that, I wonder.
