As we know that any new MMO, even big-budget behemoths like BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic, is often fraught with bugs and exploits that can keep the game from living up to its full potential.
James Ohlen has said SWTOR players can expect patches to fix bugs and exploits found in the newly launched MMO “almost every week”. These patches will be focused almost entirely on fixing bugs, exploits, and glaring balance issues within the game.Speaking in a post on the official forums, Ohlen said to expect balance changes, and other minor fixes, as such issues are of “the highest priority.” “They are reviewed by senior leadership on a daily basis. Bug fixes usually take longer than a week to get into the game because we need to fix the issue and then test the fix. Some bugs take longer than that because of the complexity of the issue,” he said.
Ohlen does remind players, however, that bug-fixing is not always a simple task. “There are issues that we will fix immediately,” he says, with the caveat that “these are rare and not every issue can be fixed in this manner. We usually reserve these ‘emergency fixes’ for bugs that are stopping players from playing the game or to exploits that could unbalance the entire game if not corrected.”
Ohlen said previously we’ll just have to wait for the next patch to see what the devs have cooked up and Bioware will be adding “new game systems and content in future patches”.Every players could expect this patches .
