Hey everyone,

The last time we talked about Season One, we said that it was targeted to begin on Tuesday, October 29th. Unfortunately, we are going to be delaying the start of Season One.

I know that this is the absolute last thing any PvP players will want to hear, but we have good reason. We have discovered that there is a major issue with how ratings are being awarded in Ranked matches currently. This bug can cause some very serious "rating inflation" to happen. Basically, if we started Season One with this bug in place it could become near impossible for teams who get a late start to catch up.

Simply put, we couldn't begin Season One with such a nasty bug in place and because of that, we are delaying its launch until we can get it resolved. The team’s new target date is November 12th. Like all dates we announce in advance they are subject to change if we find a show stopper issue late in the development cycle.

Thank you all for your patience. We are just as eager to get Season One started as you are but we want to make sure it is done right!

As long as Galactic Starfighter is not delayed I don´t care that much.. only playing regular warzones for regular people like me, who sometimes suck at PvP anyway

I resubbed for GS and my goodies (PS, where are my Join the Battle goodies, I wonder.... Still waiting)

Meh...fine with me. Calling it "Season 1" doesn't change anything at all about the gameplay, so it's a non-issue imo. It's like delaying a cosmetic item from the CM.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

They could have just said it was delayed and not give information at to why or give a new projected date for its start. From the sounds of it this bug that is in the current system is not something we want to be there when it goes live so it it take 14 more days to fix that issues I pretty sure most every one is willing to wait those 14 days to avoid having a broken system. Well unless your one that thinks such a bug would give you and advantage, but you would be one of those types of people would you?
