Hello everyone!

Hey folks,

We just got sign off for the fix! Current plan is that the servers will go down in about 20 minutes, at 2PM Central. We expect all servers to be offline for about 30 minutes as we deploy the fix. There will not be a patch to download.

Thanks all.

Hey folks,

Our back-end fix has helped alleviate some of the issues but not all. We are working on a secondary fix which should resolve the remaining issues, but it will require us to briefly bring down all servers. It will be a couple of hours from now as we get things ready, but expect a brief downtime (30-60 minutes) sometime early afternoon Central US time.

I will provide more timing updates as I have them.

Hey folks,

At this point you should be seeing improvement for traveling in and out of Strongholds, as well as logging into characters that are in them. We are looking into characters that are still in a bad state. More updates to come.

When is the upcoming Nightlife? | 06.18.2019, 08:40 AM
The Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event is actually live right now! It'll be going until July 30th and I've updated the events page to properly reflect that.

Ok folks, we are beginning the process to try to fix the Stronghold issue. We are rolling out some changes behind the scenes so you should start seeing improvement over the next hour or so as it is rolled out.

We will continue to monitor though and if this doesn't resolve it, we may need to perform a maintenance later today. I will swing back in the thread with updates!

Hey folks,

We have a line on what we believe is causing the issue and the team is looking into a fix. We are hoping to fix the issue without bringing the game down. I should have an update for you in the next 30 minutes or so.

Thanks all!

Hello everyone,

I just got to the office about 10 minutes ago, but I wanted to let everyone know that the team is currently investigating the issue. Once we know more, I will be sure to come back here with an update.

Lag is getting out of hands on Darth Malgus. | 06.17.2019, 12:58 PM
Hey there,

Yeah, this is a known issue following our last maintenance. We are looking into a variety of fixes and are planning to have something to address it by tomorrow. It is possible we may have a brief downtime as a part of this fix, but I will pass on those details once I have them.

No Conqueror of Dantooine achievement | 06.17.2019, 08:42 AM
Hey folks,

I am looking into whether it is a bug or not that there is no achievement for Conquering Dantooine. I will let you know one way or another and if it is a bug, what the plan is.

Thanks!

super lag on SF Dantooine | 06.16.2019, 11:16 AM
I appreciate everyone keeping us up to date with the status of things over the weekend! I've been passing on the improvements along with the areas that still need further investigation to the team. We'll be rolling out some more adjustments on Monday that should improve the overall situation.

super lag on SF Dantooine | 06.14.2019, 04:05 PM
Throughout today the team has made some back-end changes to help alleviate the issue. While we've noticed an initial positive effect from this, I will closely be monitoring the Forums over the weekend. Please continue to let us know if there are issues or if its gotten better. If you are still having issues, please include the area and server to help us narrow our scope. I will be sure to pass it on to the team and we can act accordingly.

I'm not sure why that didn't get transferred over to that feed yesterday, but I made sure to fix it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

Hello everyone!

I wanted to let everyone know that the team is aware of the issue and actively investigating solutions. Some adjustments were made last night that seem to have helped in some areas but not others, so we're continuing to pursue solutions to fully address the issue. I'll be sure to update you later today as we learn more. In the meantime, please continue to share any lag you're noticing on Dantooine or elsewhere (or any improvements)!

Bug hunt XP Nerf? | 06.12.2019, 03:39 PM
Hey all,

It's been a while since I posted, but wanted to jump in and say yep, we've known about this area and had planned to fix it with the expansion.

We typically don't include these types of changes in Patch Notes, but tbh, this snuck out with 5.10.3a. Since it's now effectively rolled out, we'll keep it in and will update the /slap message you're receiving when you are killing the poor bugs. What you are seeing isn't the final change, so we'll make additional adjustments in upcoming patches.

Speaking of patches, we have a mid-summer update including the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event (with new rewards) coming out soon. Most of the team is focused on the expansion and of course, what follows in the winter.

See some of you at the Cantina in San Diego next month!


Keith---

ps...I'm seeing double XP and double CXP in-game on my toons, so you might want to check again. It's typically visible on your experience/CXP bar on your UI.
