SWTOR delays Update 5.4 by a day due to a last-minute bug

Very dynamic.
Sorry to rain on your Umbara parade, SWTOR players, but you’re going to have to wait an extra day to dive into the August update.

The devs announced that they had to delay the patch in order to fix a serious issue with the new instance: “As we do with all updates, we continually test until it goes out the door. From this testing we discovered a critical bug with the Crisis on Umbara flashpoint. This bug can prevent a substantial amount of gameplay when a player experiences it, from not playing the intro cinematic to not allowing re-entry into the instance. Due to the severity of the bug, we are not comfortable releasing the game update in its current state.”

Update 5.4 is now scheduled to deploy first thing Wednesday morning. The silver lining to all of this is that the team has lowered the cost for the Umbara train stronghold from two million down to a much more reasonable 5,000 credits.

Just a note: the update has been pushed to Thursday now. The issue is with the first cutscene of the new Flashpoint.

I have zero problem with them delaying something for a day in order to fix a critical bug they’ve found.


In all honesty I do not mind them delaying it to fix stuff. Better to get a patch that works and have only 1 maintenance then 2 to fix it as well.

I recently returned to the game and got to say that I have been really enjoying it. Sadly if your not on Red eclipse in the EU the game feels empty but hopefully that will be solved soon.

For the rest the game is great, the story is fun and engaging in my opinion.
Queue’s pop fast and plenty of people around.

For those on the fence to return I would say go try it out the command system really is not that bad :) + they are bringing out some good stuff :D

Wow, that’s not my expierence at all. The command system is a nightmare, sure you can do it for one toon maybe with a little patience… but all the other toon? Yikes nope.
PVP pops are getting too slow and most veteran players have gone. No wonder though, Bioware took a year too adress class balances and they didn’t even get it right.

Sorry for the rant, but I wouldn’t recommend to come back to SWTOR right now at all.
