During last night's maintenance, some areas of the game were reverted to pre-Game Update 1.2 status. Some areas were 'missing' and characters that were in those areas would be unavailable. We took the live servers offline at approx 9:30AM CDT (Austin time).
Our server and deployment teams are now working to rebuild assets for the live servers, but this is unfortunately not a quick process. We currently estimate that our downtime could be up to eight hours, but that time may be extended.

Better than it was but still sucks for people who payed 6 months
Hello everyone! At BioWare we're always listening to our fans and we've heard our community's comments around players with Level 50 characters being the only group awarded 30 days of play time. We appreciate the feedback and are pleased to announce that we are expanding our Legacy Promotion, also awarding 30 days of play time at no charge to players that have reached Legacy Level 6 (who may not have a 50th level character).
We just released the innovative Legacy System as part of Game Update 1.2, and felt that looking at Legacy point progression across all of your characters was a great way to reward our most avid players. This means that any of the experience you earn with any of your characters brings you closer to the goal of Legacy Level 6. The choice of how to get to Legacy Level 6 is yours.
First, you need to have passed Chapter 1 to unlock your legacy. Examples of how to get to Legacy Level 6 include:
A pair of characters Level 45 and 42
A trio of characters of Levels 45, 32 and 32
A bunch of characters Levels 35, 33, 31, 29 and 20
A single 50th level character that has enjoyed the endgame for a brief time
Remember these are just examples – you’re free to choose how to earn your Legacy experience to gain Legacy Level 6.
We've also got another significant piece of good news: everyone will have until April 22nd at noon CDT (5:00pm GMT - click here for a time zone converter) to have a Level 50 character or Legacy Level 6 on their account to get 30 days of game time on us. (Your 30 days of game time will be applied to your account on April 25th by 11:59pm CDT.) Players will now have multiple options, as well as more time, to try and reach these goals.
As always, we appreciate your feedback and will do our best to surprise and delight our customers.

Rakghoul Outbreak Evrent on Tatooine Empire & Republic
April 15th, 2012 #584
From Darth Hater:
Today marks the first of the live in-game events for Star Wars: The Old Republic. Earlier this morning, two mysterious objects appeared in the faction fleets. The Republic feel saw the inclusion of a blimp and on the Imperial side, a communication terminal. Players who click on the objects are told to stay away from Tatooine due to a Rakghoul Outbreak. According to sources on the official forum, if players take part in the event, they will gain several codex entries and possibly a reward. The event is still ongoing, so if you’re thinking of playing today, you should head on over to Tatooine.
Videos of the live event indtroductions are available after the jump.
