[Fixed] SWTOR server list empty for new logins, issue being looked into

Update (January 08):

The issue is fixed.

Original story follows:

Star Wars: the Old Republic, a narrative-focused online RPG from Bioware, is currently facing a serious glitch. A few hours ago, the game’s official Twitter handle acknowledged a “login service unavailable” error that users have been getting.

While this error was fixed quickly, another problem – empty server list – came to fore.

Since then, the company has provided regular updates on the matter, but sadly, it has all been about ongoing investigation into the matter.

However, the Twitter handle did say the ’empty server list’ problem only affects new logins.

Meanwhile, affected users are taking to social media platforms to convey their displeasure over this whole situation.
