SWTOR Maintenance 15th November 2012

UPDATE (8.45am AEDT): Appears that servers may be down again for a little while for some people according to a SWTOR.com tweet – not ETA on when they’ll be back up. In the meantime, check out the full 1.5 Patch Notes.

It’s the bigg’un: a 12-hour maintenance downtime for the transition to Free to Play. Local time conversions for you:

AEDT: 5pm-5am
AWST: 2pm-2am
NZDT: 7pm-7am

The blurb from BioWare:

Hello everyone, we wanted to let you know that we will be performing scheduled maintenance for twelve hours on Thursday, November 15th, 2012 from 12AM CST (10PM PST/1AM EST/6AM GMT/7AM CET/5PM AEDT) until 12PM CST (10AM PST/1PM EST/6PM GMT/7PM CST/5AM AEDT). All game servers, SWTOR.com, and the launcher will be offline during this period. This maintenance is expected to take no more than twelve hours, but could be extended.

Explore Section X, a brand new area on the prison world of Belsavis, where you will not only embark on a galaxy-wide mission to recruit the legendary HK-51 Assassin Droid as your companion, but also confront agents of the Dread Masters in their attempt to activate a powerful ancient Rakata weapon.

In Game Update 1.5, there will be two different ways to play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™:
Subscription – A service designed for players who want unrestricted access to all the game features via ongoing subscription or by redeeming a Game Time Card. Subscribers will receive ongoing monthly grants of Cartel Coins. Cartel Coins can be used to purchase valuable items including customizable gear and convenience features that will enhance the gameplay experience.
Free-to-Play – The first 50 levels will be Free-to-Play, with some restrictions on access to new content and advanced player features. Some restrictions can be “unlocked” with Cartel Coins.

After this maintenance is over, restart the game launcher to patch to Game Update 1.5.

  1. Well, they are alrdy an hour and a half past 12 hours wtf

  2. almost two hours late, they could have at least sent out a message telling that it was delayed and the new finish time.

    There’s now no ETA on when servers come back online

  4. So the game is still down and the site is down….. seems like they are sticking to their Standard Operating Procedures.

    They really could learn a thing or 2 from the way Arena Net have done maintenance for Guild Wars 2

  5. Looks like it’s back online…. Welcome to F2P 😀

    Thing’s happen, to stop from fixing what ever may have caused it to put up a post takes away from fixing what ever might have caused the delay as it is pushing times even further into the distance. The game will be on when its on.
