1.1.5 Patch Notes — 3/6/2012

BioWare took the servers down for scheduled Maintenance today. At the same time they launched patch 1.1.5. While this patch is nothing compared to the monster that patch 1.2 looks like it’s going to be, it still brings many new fixes to the game. Check it out below: General Players can now use the command /roll or /random to generate a random number between 1 and 100. This command will also accept a range (example: /roll 20-40) or a die value (example: 2d6). Classes and Combat General Moving while channeling an ability (such as Telekinetic Throw and Force Lightning) will no longer cancel the Global Cooldown, which would allow those abilities to deal more damage than intended. Sith Warrior The French version of the “Darth” title is now correct. Flashpoints and Operations Operations General Bosses in Operations now drop the correct amount of loot when the group is using the…

SWTOR Servers Down on a Friday Night- Plus Scheduled Maintenance Jan 31st

Players were shocked by unexpected downtime last night right in the middle of Friday night/ Saturday morning gameplay for SWTOR. The forums went down, too, meaning frustrated players couldn’t even go rage about why they were kicked off their favorite game. Some took to Twitter to complain about it while we awaited the return of the servers and an explanation as to what had happened. A forum post explained it earlier in the day but few people caught it. Most of us were informed of the server shut down by the in-game notifications as we were playing. That post on the Official forums goes onto explain the upcoming scheduled maintenance: Scheduled Maintenance Date: Tuesday, January 31st, 2012 Time: 2AM CST (12AM PST/3AM EST/8AM GMT/9AM CET) until 10AM CST (8AM PST/11AM EST/4PM GMT/5PM CET) All game servers and swtor.com will be offline during this period. This maintenance is expected to take no more…

1.0.2d Patch Notes 1/12/2012

BioWare used today’s maintenance to fix a few minor bugs in the game. Below are the patch notes Items Fixed an exploit that allowed the removal of Armoring item modifications that were not intended to be available for removal on Artifact quality items. Magenta color crystal recolored hot pink, renamed to “Fabulous Crystal”. Stats remain unchanged. ( oh wait…)  Flashpoints and Operations Flashpoints Bug Fixes Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented players from resetting their active Flashpoint. OperationsEternity Vault Using “Reset All Active Operations” no longer causes Soa and the Ancient Pylons to respawn even if the player is currently locked out of these encounters.

Server Maintenance yet again.

BioWare have closed down there servers to patch the dupe exploit that has been around for a few days. While I’m pretty bummed about not getting to play as much as I would like on my day off, I’m happy that BioWare fix these exploits as fast as possible. So what was the exploit about anyways?  Well basically you fool vendors to think that they  bought  a stack of 99 items while they actually only bought one item. readers have mailed us how they made millions of credits before the server went down, but we have no screen shots to prove it. Funny thing about this bug is not the bug it self  (shit happens and then you fix it) but the fact that Reddit and 4chan users tried rallying the masses to “take down TOR”. I’m not sure what’s up with these people, but you can read more about “Operation Occupy SW: ToR” here.

Unscheduled maintenance (1.0.2b Patch Notes 1/5/2012)

The SWTOR Servers just went down for an unscheduled maintenance. Here is the what why and when: We are working on getting a patch deployed to address the issues that some players are still experiencing after 1.0.2 including: Fixing an issue that causes in-game chat channels to stop functioning for some players. Preventing social emotes (like /getdown) from interfering with combat. We’re currently testing this patch, and we hope to have it deploy sometime in the early hours of the morning tomorrow (CST), but if we experience any issues with this patch, we may hold off its deployment until tomorrow night. The combat bug with social emotes we talked about yesterday was pretty game breaking, and so is the chat channel bug, so it’s nice to know that BioWare are ready to resolve problems fast rather then wait till next scheduled update. Random image is random. Nice Rancore though 🙂
