Heroic Missions repeatable since December 5th downtime

Hey everyone,

As many of you have noticed since yesterdays downtime, Heroic Missions are now repeatable instead of having a weekly lockout. While this is a bug and we are going to fix it with 5.0.1 next week, we dont consider this an exploit. Thanks for those that have sent their reports of the issue, and enjoy your plethora of Heroics!

#2 Harbinger Has a Queue!!!!!

Hey folks!

We have identified the issue, and are working to get it resolved. In fact, we have seen a significant dip in the queue.

If you're seeing issues with in-game mail, it is simply a delay - nothing has been lost.

We are going to continue working on the issue, but you should see a steady improvement over time.

#3 Downtime - 12/5/2016

As there seems to be some confusion, let me clarify.

The bug was exploitable by entering a higher number in the Disintegration pop up than you had available in your stack of items. e.g. You had 10 Jawa Junk available, and entered 1000 in the pop up.

If you simply Disintegrated the whole stack you had without using a high number than you had available, you did not encounter the bug, and therefore did not exploit.

Sorry for any confusion!

Hey everyone,

We brought the servers down to address an issue involving setting the stack size in the "Disintegration" pop up higher than the amount you had available.

As of this downtime, this issue has been fully resolved. For those who are wondering, we do consider having taken advantage of this bug an exploit. After a detailed review, we will take appropriate actions as needed.

Thank you,

Hey everyone,

Apologies for the last minute notice, but we will be bringing the servers down at 1:45 PST (2145 GMT) for a brief update. I will post as soon as the servers are available, but we don't expect the downtime to last more than an hour.
