Game Update 1.6: Ancient Hypergate is now live in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™! This Game Update brings some exciting new content to The Old Republic including:

Warzone: The Ancient Hypergate lets you test your strength with a brand new PvP game mechanic. In this Warzone, Republic and Empire forces are locked in a brutal conflict to control two energy pylons. You must fight to take control of these powerful pylons and kill any foes in your way to discharge a massive blast of energy through your faction’s gate. The first team to open their portal will unleash deadly reinforcements to wipe out enemy players.

Heroic Space Missions will challenge your galactic piloting skills. Both Republic and Empire classes have six new repeatable Level 50 Heroic Space Missions. These updated Space Missions are the most intense Space Missions to date and players who are up to the challenge can earn Black Hole Commendations to spend on ship upgrades, high level gear, and more!

I'm extremely excited about this patch!! Lots of great new goodies for us, and I'm so pumped to see the PvP gear gap being taken away. However... I don't seem to be able to play now. The server lag is extremely high, and not just for me, but for many people on the server.

This patch sucks unless you really wanted a new warzone. The Christmas items are embarrassing and you have to pay for them. This just shows once again that Bioware have no idea how to make an MMO.

Ever since the update, my game has not been working correctly. I was playing my game and my character kept getting stuck in the hallways while touching nothing. She couldn't move forward. I lost a connection. Whenever I start the game over it doesn't bring me to my character selection screen. It just shows the loading screen without a progress bar. Please fix.....and add Togruta species for next update

Thank you!

there is a mixup between the required gear for the Elite war hero combat tech and combat medic.

This was reported on the PTS 3 weeks ago and nobody corrected it

You're doing worse and worse in my book EAware.

And charging money for event items supposed to bring the community together for Life day? Really?
Your greed knows no bound EAware.

not because of the content or the gravity of the bugs, it's not game breaking.
But it shows where your priority is: grabbing our money through the cash shop and not reading the bug reports from people who test on the PTS free of charge for you, out of their love of the game.
That is sad.

Not entirely pleased with just buying the items.

I like it how you guys don't write a single yellow post in any of the recent threads in order to explain your reasoning behind the latest changes (end-game gear on the market, event items on the market with no event happening). While at the same time i've seen you silently deleting some threads and merging the other ones, which makes me think that you are here on the forums, but for whatever reason do not desire to communicate with us on the matter.

This was actually a kind of dissapointing Update. Love the new WZ so far...but everything just feels "wrong" for some reason with TOR now.

Fix AMD Crossfire support.

Because playing Warzones at 20 frames per second is so much fun!
