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.

Still, if we can avoid those issues being live we would like…

SWTOR : PTS changes to Vandin Huttball map.

Eric Musco have informed the community that SWTOR developers will be making some changes to Vandin Huttball map. Hey folks, We are aiming to try to have a new PTS patch this week, to be deployed tomorrow. It is possible it will slip to next week, but I will let you know for sure tomorrow. We will have mirrored playtests from last week, if it goes live this week. Here are some of the changes we are making based on your feedback: Made some environmental changes to the map to make it feel a bit less “cluttered.” Removed the “box stack” in the center catwalks and replaced them with forcefields. This gives more visibility across the map as well. Throw the Huttball will now stay in the first pop-up slot if you also have the Gravity Grapple ability. This should address concerns for players who keybind the Throw the Huttball ability….
