Timeline Alterations - A Bit of Confusion

I began to notice something: Going through (and adding to, occasionally) Wookieepedia's entries regarding in-game stuff, particularly the KotFE storyline, there is a bit of a change regarding "what year it is".

Now, when the expansion released, it was implied that the events that took place after the Chapter 3 class story - Makeb, Revan, Ziost, getting ice-blocked, so on - all occurred in 3640 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin - as in, before the first Star Wars movie - for those unfamiliar with the dating), or 13 ATC (After the Treaty of Coruscant, the SWTOR dating system). The timeskip, therefore, would be five years later, in 3635 BBY/18 ATC. Except this no longer appears to be the case. All across the board, the events from Ilum onward have had years added onto them - according to a developer on Twitter, RL time has passed since the events on Ilum:



So, as a result, we got an additional three years tacked onto the timeline. Valkorion's death on Zakuul is now listed as being in 3637 BBY/16 ATC, and the timeskip is now 3632 BBY/21 ATC. So now, my brain is officially confused.

Though it raises confusion, it should be noted that it's not a official confirmation. They can modify the dates if someone brings up this confusing event to them. Point on it, though, it makes me feel old to realize there's been three years now XD

Interesting. I've been assuming the 1 expansion = 1 year timeline the whole time.

Yeah.  If they can't keep their story straight, we'll just have to do what works best for each of us.

Well, it's mostly because that's the system that games generally go with. Even if you're with an expansion for two years, in-universe only one year has passed between expansions. Which gets awkward with games that have holidays...
