SWTOR No Conquest for the week of Feb 2-9

Due to bugs, conquest for the week of Feb 2-9 is cancelled. Conquest Broken Again: 2nd Feb 2016 | 02.02.2016, 11:31 AM Hey everyone, The team has finished looking into what has caused this week’s Conquest to not start properly. Unfortunately, the issue is a bit more complex than we have experienced in the past with Conquests. Due to this, we will be implementing a fix for this with Game Update 4.1 next Tuesday. This means that there will not be a Conquest this week, as we work to address the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience. -Tait Join the forum discussion on this post
