  1. Complete garbage! I was beta tester. Played into replease and started having this happen. I tried all this with Support and Developers and it did not fix the problem. The issue is in the game and the SWTOR servers. Consider this, if the game plays fine one day and not the next or later the same day then then it is not the computer but the server as 99% of users done make system communication changes to the working machine. If it was a user mahcine error then the odds are other online games would also have issues that used the same ports. I play three online games and none of them had issues like SWTOR did. I played one night with constant Error 9000, quit and then went to dinner, came back home and tried again, worked fine. Got into a group for a mission and we got part way into the stops when it started happening to one of the other players not to me. If it was my machine, as they often claimed then it would happen each use (without change) and yet it did not. This was, and from the posts I see on google search, is an ongoing issue with the game that is still being blamed on the user and not fixed. That is what is killing the game.
