Patch Notes – 9/4/2014 – 2.9d Patch Notes
As Elrik wrote earlier today, BioWare had to deploy a patch to fix some of the servers performance issues, players in Star Wars: The old republic have experienced lately. S Elrik wrote, it’s encouraging that Bioware was quick to take action to fix them. Below are the patch notes: There will be no download associated with today’s maintenance. General Applied multiple fixes in order to address server stability issues. Resolved an issue that would cause a guild to lose ownership of a conquered planet after a server restart. Ensured that the historical ownership of conquered planets is correct.
Patch Notes – 8/29/2014 – 2.9c Patch Notes
BioWare is adding a new patch today, that will fix the Conquest Flashpoints exploit, tha tsome players are using. Flashpoint Conquest Objectives are intended to be one-time only, not infinitely repeatable. The only Flashpoint Objectives that can be repeated are the Group Finder ones – and those can only be done when you have the Daily Mission for the Group Finder available. Below are the patch notes: General Flashpoint Conquest Objectives are now non-repeatable as intended. The Galactic Starfighter Invasion Bonus for Ilum now applies properly. I really don’t understand the point of this. PvP/GSF grinders are doing stuff and getting points all day long. This week we’re not getting easy points for the five-minute heroics AND they’re taking the Esseles/BT runs away? Might as well rename it “PvP conquest”.
Patch Notes – 8/26/14 – 2.9b Patch Notes

Below are the patch notes: 2.9.0b Patch Notes General Corrected an issue with Galactic Strongholds that caused reduced performance in some instances. Corrected an issue where a player’s Legacy Titles would appear blank.

Non-repeatable Conquest objectives are no longer reset by logging into a character that has not participated in the Conquest Event. Keys granted to others players now persist through log out, as intended. Missions + NPCs Players can now interact with Bakmar, the Republic Flashpoint vendor on Manaan. Image source
Game Update 2.9 Known Issues
With a new gameupdate comes new bugs to the game. Here is a list of the known issues so far. Luckily there are no game-breaking bugs a this time. Players do not receive double Prestige on previously placed items after conquering a planet. Decorations can get bugged if the layout is switched while a Decoration is present. Workaround: If you find you have two Decorations occupying the same area, leave the Stronghold and then re-enter. A guild will still be displayed in the Leaderboards if it is disbanded while controlling a planet. Emissive effects on Decorations are not rendered in the Preview Panel. Guild names are not updated on the Leaderboard if they are changed during a Conquest event. Companions are missing the Mission Icon above their head if they are summoned in a Stronghold. Players can get stuck in a Decoration they were situated on if they return to…

Now we can finally sit in a chair…
It took BioWare a while, but finally we get the emote all players have been waiting for in Star Wars: The old Republic – /chair – and guess what it makes you do… It makes you sit down in one of the many many chairs around the game. Together with this emote comes another emote : /sleep, that makes you… Yes you guessed it right. Both emotes are on the Public test servers right now, and don’t seem to need unlocking, you just automatically have them unlocked! It is an interesting way to allow players to sit in chairs without having to reprogram stuff. While it’s not the ideal solution… I like it. Check them both out in the video below: Since it’s a generic emote and you’re not actually sitting on a chair/couch, you also won’t ever get any closer than the lip of the seat due to clipping,…
