SWTOR Forum Guidelines | 03.01.2021, 11:40 AM
Hello everyone,

We wanted to post a reminder of Forum rules and etiquette when engaging one another here. In order to foster constructive discussions in a safe and healthy environment, we do enforce our forum rules and expect our community members to treat each other with respect, even when disagreeing. You can read the full Rules of Conduct here, but these guidelines will help you contribute to the community and keep it a fun, healthy, and safe space for everyone!
  • Be mindful and respectful of each other even if you have differing opinions. Tone over text can be misinterpreted. Before you click ‘Submit Reply’, think about how your tone can come across to another community member.
  • Do not attack, harass, bully, threaten, or insult another community or staff member.
  • Hate speech is not tolerated. This can include and but is not limited to derogatory or hateful comments about a person’s race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, appearance, nationality, country, and religion.
  • Calling out another player, community member, guild, or brigading (group coordinated harassment) against them is not permitted.
  • Do not spam. This includes spam reporting, spam messaging, and repeatedly posting the same message multiple times.
  • Report a problematic post using the report function so our team can review it. If you see negative comments being posted that violate our rules, please report them. Engaging can further spread the toxicity.
  • Creating false reports can result in actions being taken against your account.
  • It is at the sole discretion of the Community and Moderation Teams to remove content that they believe violates the Forum Guidelines and/or Rules of Conduct or is otherwise objectionable even without receiving a report of a potential violation.

Helpful reminders:
  • If you have issues with your account, please contact Support here.
  • If you need to report a player outside the forums for harassment, cheating, and/or abuse, please go here. Choose STWOR as the platform and follow those steps.
  • The Bug Report sub-forums and their guidelines can be found here.
  • The STAR WARS Discussion sub-forum is for any topic that is Star Wars related but non-SWTOR. The Off Topic sub-forum is for any topic that is outside of SWTOR and Star Wars as a whole.

Any post that has been determined to be in violation of our rules will be removed. It is at our team’s discretion if further action must be taken against any account that has broken our rules.

We will always strive for the Forums to be a healthy space for everyone who wants to participate in conversations here. Please know that the Community Managers and Moderation Team are working together to review player reports, keep the forums organized, provide our teams with important information from the Forums, and are always helping point players towards helpful information.

Thank you,
Community Team

DATE: March 2, 2021
TIME: 4:00AM - 7:00AM PST (1200 - 1500 UTC)
VERSION: 6.2.1

Patch notes are already available, here:

Thank you for your patience as we maintain Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

All the servers just crashed? | 02.23.2021, 01:04 PM
Hi folks,

You should now be able to log back in and play. If you keep having connectivity issues, please let us know.

Thanks for your patience.

All the servers just crashed? | 02.23.2021, 12:21 PM
Hi folks,

Thanks for the report concerning the connectivity issues. Our team is currently looking into it. I'll update you when I know more.

As you are still experiencing an issue and the recommendations from others have not resolved your issue, I will be moving this thread to the appropriate sub-forum. You posted in General Discussion, so I will be moving this to the Bug Report sub-forum.

Secondly, I also encourage you to report this in-game as well and include as much info as you can such as the YT link that you posted later on in the thread. Use /bug. Please keep all that info in a consolidated format, so it will be easier to review, repro- etc...

Lastly, what happened in Texas was more than a power outage. While we do value all of our players, the safety and recovery for our teams is the highest priority right now. This is not a simple flip of a switch scenario and everything is immediately 100% again. Understand that and have more empathy, please.

I thought it was supposed to be bounty contract week... not Gree... | 02.23.2021, 10:30 AM
Hi folks,

Due to last week's situation, Game Update 6.2.1 was not deployed as scheduled. The effect of it is that this week's Conquest is the Relics of the Gree Event instead of the Bounty Contract Week. The Conquest and Event schedule will return to a normal rotation next week.

For those who are looking for Bounty Contract Week, we are exploring adjusting the schedule to account for the fact that it was missed this week. Keep an eye on the in-game event page for any updates.

We apologize to anyone that was looking forward to the Bounty Contract Event this week. We will also update the website schedule to reflect this.

Feb/Mar Events ? | 02.23.2021, 09:54 AM

As far as moderating the forums, posts that violate our rules are deleted. We encourage civil conversations and we ask that players follow our guidelines.
I am also asking you to be civil with me and other community members here.

If you are not aware of the situation in Texas, we experienced a state wide weather crisis. Most of us literally could not contact anyone for days while the worst of the ice storm hit us. There was no power, no heat in freezing temperatures, no internet, no water, and no cell service. My communication focuses during this time was doing what we could to provide shelter, warmth, food, and clothes for people who needed it most. As I wrote in my post yesterday, we are working toward becoming fully operational and will provide updates as we can. I am asking for your understanding in that this also includes adjusting and updating communications.

Quick Check In | 02.22.2021, 09:28 AM
Hi everyone,

Wanted to check in on a personal level and let you all know that we are still recovering from the Texas ice storms that hit us last week, but we are working to become fully operational. Many of us were without power, water, gas, internet etc... for the majority of the week, and we appreciate everyone who has sent us positive and uplifting messages.

We will have game focused updates soon, so please keep an eye on all our official channels as usual. We thank you for your continued patience as we continue to recuperate and bounce back from last week’s crisis.

Bioware, have you been changing things while the game is live? | 02.09.2021, 10:12 AM

We will run a repair on both seperate PCs and see if that fixes the graphics bugs. It’s very weird that it started on exactly the same day as each other. While that’s not impossible, it is improbable considering we did no PC software updates on either from the day before. Will report back if that doesn’t fix it.

To confirm, you are saying the activation lag bug is most likely your end or at least not totally our end?
Hi again, I have a few confirmations that nothing has changed.

For lag, I asked around and everything looks normal. As always if you or others experience any issues, please let us know.
