    I know 2 things.

     

    Guild banks are gone

    And the people who spent 600k on them haven't gotten the money back

    Except players who unsubbed due to 1.2 being a total ****fest. I'm afraid they vanished from SWTOR universe forever.

    You understand what was implied both in your title and the post you linked you op to.

    Look at my post history..I've been a HUGE critic of ToR and Bioware..HUGE.  That said  1.2 was a step in the right direction. Yes it came way late, Yes it has some problems but it has made the game better.  the emergency maintance seems like a pretty small ordeal to me and fairly common after a large patch.

    Sorry but what large patch? These are the notes for patch 1.2a, the patch that broke the game.

    If this has happened yesterday, when they implemented the actual content patch, then I would give them more slack but the fact is they managed to break the game implementing a bug fix. It's utterly pathetic that a multimillion dollar can't implement a non-essential bug fix without bringing all the servers down. It's not like they were hotfixing some deep, gamebreaking bug.

    Oh and I understand what was implied in the title and I see nothing wrong with it.

    Rollback (Verb): Restore (a database) to a previously defined state.

    Since the servers were temporarily restored to their pre-1.2 state they were, by definition, rolledback. Now that the servers are down and not set to pre-1.2 the term does not apply anymore and hence why MikeB changed the title.

        Some reading comprehension would help you here.  The patch (1.2a) AFTER the big patch (1.2) messed things up, not the big patch.  What I was directly addressing was that testing showed them that Ranked WZs were not working as intended and they decided that rather than intentionally releasing broken crap like SOE, they would put off the Ranked WZs.  Then along comes the little patch that messed with one single feature of the game that it was not even intended to touch.  Obviously, the little patch was not tested enough, but my previous post was about the WZs not being in 1.2, not the mess 1.2a made.  Sorry you did not understand that.

        As complicated as the programing is, I am surprised it does not happen a lot more often than it does in most games.

    What's the big deal, so they left out a planet or two. No biggie! After all Alderann was wiped out, BW is already +1

    Well shit happens. You can't really expect a patch that huge (and subsequent small patch to correct some things) without there being some issues yeah? I remember playing WoW and sometimes patches would break the game for a couple days. 

    So...the world is not ending, the sky is not falling. Just relax.

And then outsource the game to three guys named Peggy who live on Pirate Island. I'm playing it safe and changing to grape juice.

        I'm not sure if you are joking or actually wearing the biggest tinfoil hat I have EVER seen.

    Wow, I have never had anyone take me seriously before. My wife warned me that could happen,even with me. Maybe this will clarify things, "Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't really trying to kill you". There. By the way, you aren't a cop are you?

    Thank you.  The troll army was in full attack.

    Lol wat? I don't think anyone here actually thought the items were permanently gone. Almost every comment is about BioWare's inability to put a patch in without breaking the game and they still apply 100%.

    Right - your headline was 'patch 1.2 rollback' Which is entirely misleading and a hyperbole to the extreme.  

     

    Lol, get back to your desk at BW and fix the glitch already!

    Yep, for WoW its always been normal for the servers to go back down 1 hour the servers come back up, after a couple o hours delay, that said I certainly dont miss the servers going down for an emergency patch and roling restarts 4-6 times betwine tuesday and friday.

    But yeah.. while I agree its anoying its no different then any mmo out there, it happens.

    Quit trying to project Biowares failures onto Blizzard.

     

    And as for saying "B-b-but WoW had that happen!"

    Guess what.

    WoW lost 2 million subs last year. You're REALLY not making a good case for yourself

    Must have been some pretty nastty bugs because they are actually rolling back parts of patch 1.2 and having to rebuild some areas of the game.    They are now saying that the servers will be down until the situation is resolved.

     

    Incoming free time for all - I see this in your future if you play SWTOR.

    Which is mindboggling considering all the patch was doing was fixing a problem people had with deleting characters...

    This sucks!!! But mind boggling, unprecedented, proof of incompetence, beginning of the end... Hardly. I've seen major patches come and go with many games, and issues are nothing new. I will admit, this one is definitely on the high end though. But please stop the 'end of days' silliness.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    This. 

    Yeah, I remember when WoW deleted guild banks.

    Oh wait.

     

    Blizzard fucks up: Orc shoulder pads shink

    Bioware fucks up: Guild banks get deleted and people lose 600k credit.

     

    The best part is the patch that broke guild banks was only implemented to fix a problem where people couldn't delete there characters....

    HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN? How do botch a patch so badly?
