Bioware will be pulling the servers down on August 16th, 2013 for 2 hours starting at 3am PDT to apply Patch 2.3.0c which is just a small patch to deal with a few issues with the Bounty Contract Week event. I think it will be a VERY welcome change to have the respawn rate of the Shady Characters increased, as that has been the number one complaint I have heard regarding the new event.
Patch Notes via Bioware: 8/16/2013
Bounty Contract Week
- An issue affecting the spawn rate of Shady Characters has been corrected. The respawn rate of Shady Characters has been increased significantly.
- The “information” count required to advance Bounty Contract missions has been reduced to 4 from 5.
