Linux users have that issue from the 1st day and it is related to KUSER_SHARED_DATA and particularly timer field there. Swtor is relaying on exact values of it, however it is internal for windows and never supposed to be used in such way.

If you're intrested, you can start reading from here:

Well, we (linux users) did workaround for that.
There is no ignorance - there is knowledge.

With all of the links on that thread did you ever get closer to resolving the issue?

I had this issue as well. Through some other problem, I had to reinstall my launcher. After the reinstall, I was able to access all my toons on the Harbinger even after a force log to server select screen.

For those who havent tried, reinstall your launcher and see if it helps you like it did me.

Stuck at splash screen with spinning cogs. First time this has ever happened. 6 toons on Harbinger.

Immediately loaded into the server select screen, with a queue for Harbinger. Was able to login to a different server with no issues.

Update: Queue finished, toons loaded, playing now. My money is on something wrong with the load screen hitting a server with a queue.

I can tell you when I noticed the problem. I logged off 3 hours ago to watch a movie ,and when I logged back on I saw a message for a server update for Tuesday. That's when I noticed.
