Today I learned there is no auto log out timer, I am not sure how I feel about this. So far after the 5am restart I have been logged into the game, today is also my birthday so I have been out and about doing things, which to my surprise I came home and I am still logged into the game just afking it.

How does this affect the game servers for a person or persons to be logged into a game for so long?

I'm sure it has no particular effect. But Happy Birthday!

I wasn't sure because any other MMO I have played has a log out timer for after x amount of minutes AFK it kicks you off the game.

I wonder if you could:

1. go AFK near a popular mission
2. Collect free exp, rewards
3. ????
4. Profit

I have never come across any form of lag in game yet so it must not be effecting the servers ;)

p.s Happy Birthday

I assume that there is a number of slots on each server. You'd be taking up one of those slots. Also anytime you're near other active players, your player data will most likely be shared, thus using up some unnecessary bandwidth.

So how do you stay logged in while they're rebooting the servers?

fwiw, I had some particularly bad lag s few days ago (Sunday night?).

It was during a complicated arkfall sequence with all the action, lasted 5-6 minutes. I'm generally happy with the download speed.

I stated that I relogged in right after the reboot this morning and have been on ever since.

You know I should test this theory out, but I wonder if it would be considered cheating of some sorts .__.

Yup kind of surprised too that there isn't one. SWTOR has a terrible activity detector and tries to bump you if you spend too long without actually moving. You can be kicked for being AFK simply for standing still and chatting or using the broker. Fun times.

so before you cross the bridge leaving mt. tam an going towards the ranch theres a hill that on each side events spawn an your safe from dmg. ive seen people there all the time doing nothing. tested it myself, had my gf do the events while I went an had a smoke. pretty lame I think.

"I have been logged in to the game for x Days "

So "X" = a number preceeded by a '0' and '.' as in '0.x'?
