Another maintenance day another set of patch notes…

A few of the highlights:

  • Corrected an issue that could cause Companion Characters to appear without a head when wearing certain headgear. This was affecting Ashara for me, so looking forward to that correction.
  • Warzones now end early if team populations become too imbalanced.
  • Optimizations have been implemented that decrease instances of crashing to desktop.

I am hopeful about the work on the crashing to desktop issue as I have been suffering from that frequently, with 7 crashes in one play session over the weekend. However, I should note that in the few minutes I logged in this morning after the servers came back up, I crashed to desktop after about 2 minutes…

More patch notes after the jump.
