Attention: SWTOR.com Is Down For The Next 12 Hours

You may have noticed that Star Wars: The Old Republic has suddenly stopped working. That’s by design, apparently. The official SWTOR twitter feed has posted the following announcement:

#SWTOR.com is currently down for maintenance. ETA of 12 hours, we will let you know as soon as it becomes available.

No further clarification about the nature of the maintenance was given as of this writing, but as the free to play conversion begins tomorrow, we’re guessing it’s related to that. This was posted at 10 PM Pacific time. Yep, no one is doing anything in a galaxy far, far away until tomorrow afternoon or late morning, so go ahead, turn off the computer, pour a glass of wine and relax. Or maybe play Borderlands 2 instead.

NOTE: due to lack of clarity, we want to confirm that the post here is about the main site being taken offline, not just the game. Obviously, we know why the game itself is down. Apologies. – Ross

…oh, you mean the maint. that has been scheduled and announced for nearly two weeks now indicating this as being the 1.5/F2P release? If you check in on your subject matter more frequently then once in a blue moon, you wouldn’t have to ‘guess’ what the maint. was in relation to.

@ Frost – If this article was about the game servers being offline “for some reason” then I would completely agree with you. However, the big update wouldnt explain why the website is also down for that long.

Well, we’re well past the 12 hour mark. In just 15 min. we’ll be at the 14 hour mark.

The servers probably crashed due to the amount of people coming back to the game.
