Bracket Changes, and What's Next | 05.05.2021, 08:54 AM


Hi everyone,

Now that players have had a chance to experience Game Update 6.3, we wanted to follow up on a change we had made with PvP brackets. Currently, there are now two brackets instead of three.

Previous brackets:
  • Levels 10-42
  • Levels 43-74
  • Level 75

Current brackets:
  • Levels 10-74
  • Level 75

The intention behind the change was to increase the number of PvP players available for the whole queue. We are in the process of analyzing the data for this change and also gathering feedback from players who participate in PvP.

We understand the impact that this had on our PvP community, and will be mindful of communicating changes such as consolidating the number of total queues and their intentions ahead of time before they are implemented.

While we are on the topic of PvP, we are aware of the questions regarding the future of PvP and what that looks like.

We briefly touched on some of the longer-term plans in a post last fall <link>. Our overall goal for PvP is to support modes that accommodate safe, healthy competition. We believe that if we can do this, we can encourage more players to try out PvP and foster a growing, positive community. The more players we have playing PvP modes, the better quality the experience becomes overall. As a result, queue times are reduced and matchmaking algorithms have more players in the pool to work with. To get there, we have been working on what the future of PvP could look like.

We have made great progress here, and laid out a couple of initiatives in-line with the transition. First, we’re keeping the existing Seasonal structure and rewards plan through Season 14 to allow us the time to finish our exploration and implement the next version of PvP. Next, we’ve been gathering feedback from the community on what sort of changes you would like to see. We are exploring things like map voting/selection, accounting for classes in matchmaking, tighter brackets in matchmaking, and the reward structures in all of the current ranked and unranked modes.

Thank you all for your continued feedback!

-Chris

Weekly PO: Outer Rim Flashpoints Not Progressing | 05.05.2021, 07:40 AM
Hi folks,

Thanks for reporting this bug with the Weekly PO: "Outer Rim Flashpoints".

This bug is similar to the one with the Weekly PO: "Coreward Flashpoints". Our team is aiming to fix those bugs with Game Update 6.3a.

In the meantime, you need to complete the Flashpoints with characters below level 70 to complete this objective.

For more visibility, I also added this bug to the Game Update 6.3 - Known issues list.

Galactic Seasons - Daily PO: Black Hole Daily Missions | 05.04.2021, 02:25 PM
Hi everyone,

Thank you reporting the tracking issue you all encountered with the Daily Priority Objectives.

This bug was generated from the Galactic Seasons Weekly Reset Timer not aligning with the Conquests and in-game events Reset Timers. Players who log in now (after the Conquest Weekly Reset) should not encounter this issue. For those who still encounter an issue with their Daily Priority Objectives, it should be fixed tomorrow when the dailies are automatically re-rolled. Let us know if it’s not the case.

With our next patch, the Galactic Seasons Weekly Reset Timer will match the Conquests and in-game events reset timers to 12:00 PM UTC on Tuesdays to avoid similar issues in the future.

Thank you.

Secrets of the Enclave deco drop rate too low | 05.04.2021, 11:10 AM
Hi all,

Wanted to confirm a couple things. For Solo-Story mode, decorations do not drop from the bosses, but upon completing the quest, there is a chest that grants a decoration. This is a one time grant. Decorations currently drop in Story, Veteran, and Master modes; however, they are not guaranteed on every kill.

We have read feedback similar to the OP's, and are evaluating increasing the boss drop rates for SoV and SotE for Story, Veteran, and Master modes. We will keep you updated on any changes that may happen.

Buying old Sub Companions does not allow you to unlock said Companions | 04.30.2021, 09:45 AM
Hi folks,

We're aware of an issue that players are experiencing with Nico Okarr’s Alliance Alert not being granted when using the Encrypted Holocommunicator. To prevent this issue from affecting more players, we have temporarily disabled the purchase of all Companions from the Galactic Seasons vendor Jaleit Nall and we will be removing them from this vendor in our next patch. The Companions will return to the vendor in a future patch during Season 1 once we have resolved the Alert granting issue.

Players who try to purchase Niko Okarr or future Companions’ Encrypted Lockbox will encounter the following error message:
  • "You do not meet the requirements to purchase this item."
We are currently working on a fix for this, we will update this thread when we have more information.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi csilvajonas,

That strategy was allowing players to bypass intended mechanics altogether, not allowing them to interact with parts of the encounter, and trivializing the fight in an unintended way. We look for ways to balance the game out and ensure that it is being experienced as it should.

I did see the other thread you had started, and I encourage you to consolidate conversations. I also do recommend keeping titles of threads related to the conversation you want to start as that helps forum users understand the context/content of said threads. You can message me either a direct question or provide a link to the original thread you created, and I'll do my best to provide an answer.

Group finder Operations are not rotating | 04.29.2021, 09:12 AM
Hi Saeten,

Thank you for this report regarding the available Story Mode Operations available in the Activity Finder.

This is not a bug, but this change was intended to help players complete the Weekly Operations Priority Objectives.
  • In addition to the three Lairs, the available Story Mode Operations in the Activity Finder are now based on the Operations required to complete the Weekly Operations Priority Objective.
We've also added this note in the Game Update 6.3 - Patch notes for visibility.
