You have lost a customer.
You have lost 2 customers. Let's go guys, make the chain go to 100!

EDIT: I also think that if you don't get crashes, you get horrible fps. That's me at least.

[*]Prophecy of the Five
[*]All Characters
[*]Crashes every time at the initial loading screen after selecting a character. As of right now, SWTOR is completely unplayable.
[*]This issue started occurring after downloading today's (1/15/13) patch.

DxDiag will be in following post since it is too many characters for one post.
[*]Your reliability report in spoiler tags

SWTOR completely crashes, as well as prevents me from viewing any other window such as "Task Manager." I have to completely restart the machine, or sign out/in in order to regain control of the Windows OS.

In an effort to keep your data organized and easy to read, please respond to the questions above in the same format!

Prophecy of the Five
All characters
Crash to desktop happens after last patch 1.61
1. when leaving Section X
2. During black hole dailies

Note PC is custom built for games and runs ME3 CE with no issues.
Win7 Pro SP1 fully updated ( AMD 3.8ghz Quad core, EVGA 560 Ti with 310.90 driver. 16 GB Ram, 120 SD HD)
Anti Virus Vipre turned off when gaming. Run Game Booster 3.4. Cable 40mb down and 5mb up. I average 20 MS on good night and 60 to 80 MS on bad nights.

Lets see how 1.6.2a patch works.

Jedi Covenant
All my characters are affected
Crashes at the end of flashpoints, Hard mode flashpoints, and sometimes out of the blue. About 2 if I don't do any FP's, or HM. More if I run in my group for FP's or HM's.
I'm just waiting for the screen to load me back to my previous location after any FP's or HM's. This is a crash because I end up at the begging of the FP area, I"m not D/Cing because I usually end up in the same spot if I D/C.
I also repaired my SWTOR launcher to see if that would help get any issues resolved and it hasn't helped.

Are we making any progress with this memory leak nightmare? I'm not going to quit or anything but these crashes happening all the time have been going on too long. It's sad that a big part of my gameplay experience is looking at the time and thinking 'it's gonna crash any minute' and then it does. I suppose it's more sad that I stick around through it all but I can't quit. lol Lets fix this very soon ok
