Game Update 5.9.3 Delayed

Hey folks,

The team has made the decision to delay the launch of Game Update 5.9.3 to next Tuesday, October 2nd. We have a handful of known issues that we are tracking for the Update which we want to address before it goes live. Unfortunately, we were unable to get them fixed in time for our planned release date tomorrow.

Some of the issues we are seeing include:
  • An issue with our Conquest scheduling which will stop it from proceeding as intended.
  • The interface for holocalls not displaying properly.
  • The preview window not activating properly for a variety of item types.

In each one of these instances there is a workaround which would not actually block gameplay. Still, if we can avoid those issues being live we would like to. We are going to take the extra time to address these issues to give you the best 5.9.3 we can. I will provide further updates as we move towards next week. Double XP will also move back one week to 10/9 - 10/16. Thank you all for your understanding and we apologize for the late notice.

Hey folks,

I just wanted to ensure that all of you saw our announcement yesterday on Twitter. Game Update 5.9.3 will be going live next Wednesday, Sep 26. One additional timing of note is double XP. The event will not be starting right away on launch day. Instead it will start one week later and run for a week. The dates are:
  • 9/6: Game Update 5.9.3
  • 10/2 - 10/9: Double XP
Thanks everyone.

Outlaw's Den is working as intended.
This looks like it should be addressed in 5.9.3.

Thanks!

#7 PTS Coming Down

Hey folks,

Here are some of the final changes happening between the last PTS patch and live:
  • Throw the Huttball will now appear in the first slot of the po-up quickbar regardless of how a player receives the Huttball.
  • The map inside Vandin has been updated.
  • To address concerns regarding difficulty in getting back into the match after scoring, a grapple has been added which will take a player from the endzone to the nearby catwalk.
  • Consular stuns will work as intended.
  • The team arrows will now change dynamically similar to Queshball.
  • Fixed a variety of bugs related to Shield / Crit.
  • Players will now be stunned when the Vandin Huttball match ends.
