Somewhere in the mix of new content for Star Wars Battlefront, a glitch occured in the game causing game crashes and Rank issues. In light of this, a hotfix has been released in hope of resolving any issues.
The hotfix will reset the Rank of players that have been auto-leveled to 60 and resolve crashes that occur towards the end of rounds.
Due to Rank issues we've had with our max level players (auto-60, crashes at end-of-round) we're resetting Rank stats for some players to alleviate the backend issue we have detected. Servers will go offline for roughly 30 minutes while this update is applied.
We apologize for any inconvenience but this step is necessary so that you can properly gain levels again and avoid crashes at the end of rounds.
Earlier this week Star Wars Battlefront was hit with an update that brought increased Rank cap has been increased from 50 to 60 (there's a new 'bragging rights' item to go along with it), Hutt Contracts, autobalancing to ensure you don't play the same faction twice on the same map, scorboard changes and more.
In addition to the update, the Outer Rim DLC was made available to Season Pass owners bringing a new mode (Extraction), three new maps (Jabba's Palace, Sorusuub Refinery, Sorusuub Pipeline), weapons (DL-18, Relby V-10), and two new heroes: Greedo and Nien Nunb.
