I hope you are aware that you are killing European prime time due to that? In all due respect, I try to figure out the posts and the language on this forum if SWOTR were unavailable during US prime time.
May I suggest a simple rollback and get back to testing? Its a sane and customer-friendly decision. Forcing the servers to stay down without knowing whats going on leads nowhere - except to anger of your fanbase.
We aren't taking any options off the table, but first we need to understand what the issue is and the best way to address it. Our goal is to get the game back online as soon as possible.
