And yet lives in a country that if it wasn't for the US would probably be speaking Japanese right now...

Glad they finally seem to be addressing this issue. It was a royal pain in the arse when i was a running 32bit windows system. I have upgraded my rig recently and no longer have the problem but it needed to be sorted and its good that it is.

To be fair to BW, it take a bit of time to build up a solid case for a memory leak and, as posted earlier, its not overly easy to fix.

In addition to fixing the memory leak and updating our website and launcher with new security features, today's maintenance had a lot of back end preparation for Game Update 2.0 and Rise of the Hutt Cartel. Luckily, we were able to complete everything and get the servers up an hour earlier than anticipated; we appreciate your patience.

Sorry for any confusion or frustration caused by the messaging! We'll be sure it's fixed for future maintenance.

Because of Daylight Saving's Time last weekend, we'd changed the time zone to be congruent the current UK time. However, we'll be posting our English maintenance times in US Pacific time (currently PDT) and GMT from now on to use a standard that most people in the world are used to converting from. The French and German times will remain in Central European Time (currently CEST).

Now how about closing this thread instead of just reading the first post? This thread went downhill fast.

I am SO relieved that this has finally taken place. I know it was only 6 hrs, but I would have waited all day if you told me that in the beginning.

SWEET! I've had to call to remove it before when I moved from a physical token to my tablet, then from my tablet to my phone.
