SWTOR: Double Rewards Event – Bad News and Good News

In another galaxy far far away, BioWare ( The other Star Wars publisher)  is pushing the double rewards event in SWTOR, that was supposed to come with game update 5.6 to the next patch. So due to  a scheduling conflict in game.  It will now go live with game update 5.6.1. Here is the news:

Hey folks,

Quick update on the planned double event which was to start tomorrow with Game Update 5.6. First, the bad news. We hit a scheduling issue within the game and the double event will not go live tomorrow as intended. Now, the good news. As a make good for this missed opportunity, we are going to run the double event with Game Update 5.6.1 coming on 12/12. As an added bonus this will be an extended double event as we will run it from 12/12 – 1/1!

We apologize for the change in date, but expect you will enjoy 20 days of double time through the holidays.

Thanks everyone.
