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.
All #SWTOR servers are currently unavailable for scheduled maintenance as we deploy Game Update 5.6.
