Hey everyone,

We've identified an unfortunate issue in the Bounty Hunting Event that went live with today's patch. As a result, we have had to turn off the ability to complete the affected Mission by temporarily removing the Mission accept and turn-in terminals.

The team is actively working on a fix; in the meantime, we'd recommend that you not continue participating in the event until a fix has been implemented, as that progress may be lost. We're very sorry for the inconvenience, and will keep you posted on our progress. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy Double XP, Renown, Starfighter, and PvP points throughout the rest of the galaxy!

I've had zero problems with this on 2 of my chars. Done 2 regular and 1 kingpin. Haven't tried yet on the third but I guess I'll have to wait.

Any chance the event will be extended accordingly? Even more than the Double XP, I was looking forward to grinding out some bounties this week, and would rather not have to wait another month (or more).

Query;
How will this affect those of us who already had active Bounty Contract missions waiting to be turned in when the terminals were taken down?

Starting bounty week at the same time as double XP. Interesting decision. As it is bounty week should not just be one week a month. Not everyone has state of the art pc's. Nearly impossible to do bounties due to all the lag and everyone falling over each other. Not to mention gankers coming in at the last second to kill your bounty before you have a chance to freeze them. It needs to be at least two straight weeks from now on or left on indefinitely.

I second that notion.

Is there an ETA on this fix?

I only did one kingpin (Alderaan) on the imperial side yesterday. I had no problems with the [weekly] mission from the Solo Activities window or the mission turn-in. I got a Completed Bounty Contract in my currency tab. I did not have any problems with it, but then again I'm at maximum reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association so if there was a problem with rep I wouldn't have noticed it.

Usually when they do emergency things like this its because of some exploit. Exploits often take priority for downtime or removal server side over fixes that make life better for the players.

Still no word on when the pick-up/turn-in terminals will be available again?

from what i've heard, the issue was that people took multiple missions per char, and were able to hand them in too, so exploiting the fact you are supposed to only had in onea day for each char. (or two, if the char can do Kingpins, 1 normal, 1 Kingpin) So hopefully it won't affect anyone who handed in the normal amount, etx.
You know you can't fix an idiot, turns out you can't quarantine them either!!!
