Many people, especially subscribers, have been upset about patch 2.1. People are mad about this patch being a cartel market update only. But players are also forgetting that BioWare already announced how the coming two games updates is planed out. Still Cory Butler found it necessary to post on the official forums explaining what the developers have in mind. Check it out below:
Howdy, folks. Cory Butler here to follow-up on some of your concerns that have been surfacing in the forums and on social media sites around Game Update 2.1: Customization. First, it’s important to know that 2.1 will not affect the cadence of our game update schedule. 2.1 was the second half of our Cartel Market implementation plan. So, do not expect to see this type of Market-driven update on a regular basis. This release was comprised almost entirely of cosmetic options that have no impact on combat balance or gameplay. Vanity modifications are the kinds of things, in general, that...
Great news! BioWare just announced that the Gree Event will return next week. I guess it’s time to build a ton of rep whit them again and get them sweet sweet items. Here is the story:
Gree In-Game Event Returns – 05.17.2013
The ancient Gree starship, Gray Secant, returns to Ilum between May 21 and May 28 bringing with it great rewards, including unique armor, pets, weapons, and more!
Join with friends for another chance to earn valuable Reputation points and become a living Legend as you fight for the Gree’s grand mission. This is a great time for players at level 45+ to jump into the event before the event returns at level 55 in the future.
Visit the in-game News Terminal located on Carrick Station or Vaiken Spacedock to get started on your adventure!

Eric Musco has an interesting forum post today, on how BioWare handles feedback. Basically he is saying that SWTOR developers are indeed listening to what the community have to day, but it’s not easy to implement what the players want, or do not want. There is a technically part to the game, and let’s also be honest, most people on the official forums are insane!
Reading through the forum thread started by Eric, I can’t stop laughing. Many people are now writing stuff like “Well, since you said you do listen…ANSWER ME THIS!” and ask a random concern that they believe is the biggest problem of SWTOR right now. I would shoot myself if I was a moderator over at swtor.com. I guess it’s true that you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious. Reminds me of the good old Jeff Woods rant

Patch notes are up. We were almost right yesterday. It was a bug fix with he crystals. People were more or less printing money off this bug, as you could vendor crystals that you could get for “free”. No event unfortunately. Check out the patch notes below:
2.1.0b Patch Notes
White Color Crystals can no longer be Reverse Engineered.
The vendor value of Color Crystals that are tracked via the Collections UI has been reduced.
BioWare will be taking down the servers tomorrow to preform maintenance as well as deploying a new patch. Patch notes are not available yet, but giving the developer responses on the forums, it’s probably some kind of exploits / bug thing they need to fix fast. Might have to do with the collections crystals “bug” (mainly because I don’t know if it’s considered a bug) where you can essentially get free crystals from the cartel market.
On the other hand.. Patching up to a weekend, might be because of an event? Below are what we know:
On May 17th, all game servers will be unavailable as we perform maintenance. Patch 2.1.0b will be implemented during this downtime. Details are as follows:
Date: Friday May 17th, 2013
Duration: 2 hours
Time: 3AM PDT (10AM UTC) – 5AM PDT (12PM UTC)
Thank you for your patience as we maintain service for Star Wars™: The Old...
