SWTOR’s double event won’t make today’s 5.6 patch (but the trailer is now live!)

Very dynamic.
The bad news is that the Star Wars: The Old Republic double event has been pushed back slightly. It was supposed to start today, but instead it’s getting delayed just like the Yavin Warfront until patch 5.6.1. The good news, however, is that when the double event launches on December 12th, it’s going to be turned on until January 1st, 2018. Which means 20 uninterrupted days of doubling.┬áIs that double the planned duration? Probably not exactly. But nearly double, right? Close enough.

For those of you unfamiliar with this particular style of event, the double event, well, doubles thing. Experience gains? Doubled. Command experience? Doubled. Currency rewards? Doubled, maybe. Story moments? Doubly potent. Lightsaber glows? Doubled. And now you’ll have double the time for double the rewards. (It’s actually slightly closer to triple the time, but let’s not quibble.)

In the meantime, the 5.6 patch is currently rolling out to the remaining servers today, implementing the new Theron Shan flashpoint, the new operation boss fight against Nahut, the new Galactic Starfighter map, the new group finder UI, and a level 70 booster in the cash shop.
