So yes this makes it not that hard to do every day, but its frustrating in that you cannot really focus on concentrated space missions for a decent period of time. The day the missions first came out and I was doing the initial missions was the most fun I had had doing space missions ... ever.

Overall I would much prefer if we were able to do them all at once, or at least have options to do more than one in a row on a given day. Instead I am left logging into multiple characters for 3-5 minutes a day, leaving me in a very unsatisfied and unhappy state with respect to doing space missions. If they do not change the current setup, I forsee only doing 1-2 missions a week tops. This is hardly what was seemingly promised with the new missions.
This. Sincerely, this.

The feedback in this thread is clearly that it makes little sense to have them structured in such an odd and inconvenient way. I would love to see this changed to have all space missions be able to be picked up in one day and reset on Tuesday, just like all of the other post-50 quests. No one wants to miss potential comms just because they didn't log in one day/forgot to pick up the quest.

If the issue truly is the quest mission limit, this is LONG overdue to be raised (and is a royal pain for all fresh 50s), especially with Makeb incoming and all the quests there that will compete with the usual 15 dailies/weeklies that I have stored in my logs.

And if this measure is supposed to prevent burnout on repetitive space missions by staggering them out, well, it's probably too late for that.

If the missions start disappearing out of my log (which they haven't, so far), I'm not going to do them--I like doing three or four in a big block.

I pretty much never post to these forums, except when the issue is something I think will cause a serious negative impact on my enjoyment of the game (and appreciation towards it as an institution, something that inclines me to keep supporting the game monetarily). This is one of those times. I'd rather have the old, bugged versions where I only got a handful of the missions to pay out but I could do them whenever I wanted, than this so-called fix.
No one is forcing you to do them.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

  • Thursday - Kanz Minefield (Imp) / New Covar Ice Field (Rep)
  • Friday - Duma Strike (Imp) / Baros Ambush (Rep)
  • Saturday - Lorta Escort (Imp) / Hypori Escort (Rep)
  • Sunday - Cha Raaba Assault (Imp) / Thanium Disruption (Rep)
  • Sunday - Operation Foe Smasher (Imp) / Operation Clean Sweep (Rep)

For balance, we have decided to move one of the Sunday unlocks to Monday in a future patch.

Additionally, we have confirmed that there is a bug with the Republic mission Regnant Station, and it does reward too few credits. This has been added to the Known Issues list and will also be addressed in an upcoming patch.
Why did this system even get pushed out? Was there some focus group we didn't know about that complained things were just too convenient and wanted things structured into a way where no one does the missions anymore? Are you trying to get rid of the space mini-game? Does this have to do with the full quest log thing? Where's the explanation why these were changed? Are you planning on doing this for all dailies? Is this some sort of test rollout to see how it would be received by the community if you were to change all dailies?

You may not be forcing me to do these missions, but it certainly feels like I'm now being forced Not to do them

A real fix would be making them weekly not moving the double Sunday one to Monday.

It would be interesting to know how many people actually do though. Given the hoops you have to jump for them plus the naff reward I suspect (though I have little evidence) that an extremely small percentage of players bother.

If so the change to the update system is unlikely to improve take up and may in fact reduce it further. Still gives an excuse to "deprioritise" space even more doesn't it?

So this would mean, if I read it correctly, that Regnant Station should have reset on Tuesday, and Hypori Escort on Saturday, the only ones I have gotten through so far. However I have been checking daily on both my 50s and neither of these have reset in over 3 weeks, yes only one week since the patch, but something is still not right.

Indeed, with my schedule I play swtor on monday and thursday and that's it. With the current implementation that means I can only do one space mission a week and it will always be new cov ice field.

At least when it was bugged there were like 3 that unlocked throughout the week I could do. I would really like to do all of them though, the new space missions are really great and it would be a shame if I had to give up on the others because of scheduling.

These daily missions are really annoying. Why not make them available all on weekly reset? All the other dailies works that way. Why do differently for these?? Geez, not everyone can (or want to) log on everyday to do space missions. NOT a good move BW!

Well, apparently you can pick them up and do them later. But you must pick them up the day they are available.

On Tuesday I picked up Regnant Station (Rep) and completed it.
Wednesday I picked up Ardis Outpost Fortification (Rep). I couldn't not finish it due to that Comcast network error in my area. So I just left it in my log.
Thursday I picked up New Covar Ice Field (Rep) and completed it. Ardis Outpost Fortification (Rep) was still in my log, I made a few attempts but was to tired to complete it.
Friday I picked up Baros Ambush (Rep) and completed it. Then attempted Ardis Outpost Fortification (Rep) again an completed it. Still gave me the Operation reward and BH comms.

I received all the correct rewards each day. But I ended up completing Wednesdays mission on Friday. SO if you want to wait to do them in one day. I believe you still can, you just have to pick up the mission on that day which should be to bad. I'm sure you all are on your ship at least once a day.

Those are my findings. Give it a shot to see if it works for you.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.
