- Game Update 2.4.1 was deployed on Tuesday during a longer than usual maintenance. It included a fix for the various Relics of Reactive Warding bug, which effectively became an exploit that many players were making use of, though the other relic issue (stacking power relics) remains extant and is scheduled to be fixed in Game Update 2.4.2. Another issue with some mission objects not being clickable was resolved in patch 2.4.1a, deployed on Thursday morning.
- After Game Update 2.4.1, some players’ mobile security keys stopped working. The solution is to remove and re-add the security key.
- An issue was introduced with Game Update 2.4.1 that will prevent the ship guild bank legacy perk from being unlocked. There’s no effect if you already have it unlocked. It will become available again in the next update (hopefully 2.4.2).
- There is an issue with displaying a player’s rating, in the case where they are doing both solo and group ranked arenas. While BioWare hoped to get it fixed for Game Update 2.4.1, it’s been delayed until 2.4.2.
- While it should be obvious, all solo and group ratings will be reset once the pre-season ends and Season 1 begins.
- It is intended that the weapons being sold by the Czerka vendor on CZ-198 that have 69 mods still cost Elite commendations, rather than being changed to Basic commendations.
- The next Community Cantina will be at the EA (Electronic Arts) Redwood Shores office in San Francisco on Wednesday, 13th November. Attendees will get hands-on time with Galactic Starfighter!
The Vy’aalators are looking for more raiders! They run on Monday evening (US time), starting at 5:30pm Pacific. If you’re interested, please post in this thread on our forums.
