Why does Bioware even bother to have test servers? | 04.08.2014, 12:06 PM
Hey there,

This issue was actually fixed on PTS, but unfortunately it was still present in this build and we were unable to fix it before the update went live. I posted about it in the Bug Report forums to try to give players a heads up. It is something we are aware of and are going to get fixed ASAP.

Please let us know in the Bug Report forums if you encounter any other issues.

Female character texture is still messed up. | 04.08.2014, 08:24 AM
Hey all!

I wanted to update you on the status of this:

While it's not 100% yet, we are looking to fix this with 2.7.1. This is, of course, subject to change. I'll let you know if it gets pushed!


Game Update 2.7 Issues | 04.08.2014, 07:50 AM
Hey folks!

There are some things you may run into in 2.7 that we are aware of and are working to get corrected:

- If you're doing Flashpoints with a party, and the leader re-queues while one member is on the loading screen of the previous Flashpoint, that player may not be able to join the new Flashpoint with the party.

To avoid this, make sure that everyone is out of the loading screen before re-queuing.

- There are collision issues with some of the elevators in Korriban Incursion.

You can use the button near the elevator to get to the top (or bottom.)

- The Toxic Pipe Sludge in the Quesh Hutball Pit can damage you while under the platform below it.
- In Assault on Tython, Lord Goh's ability Debris Projection can cause framerate issues and possibly Line of Sight issues.

That is a very interesting concept! How do you move from one level to another? Do you see an issue with the team on top not being able to be knocked off from below because they have the high ground? Would it be overly aggravating to classes without knockbacks to play? What would their role be?

Maybe make them a special assault soldier who gets a huge rocket launcher to shoot at people and has to destroy something at the end of the escort?
While switching out the abilities would be a more involved engineering task it would be really fun! A set of abilities only the VIP had. Should the abilities be more powerful than normal abilities so the VIP is a force to be reckoned with? Or should the VIPs be more support/less DPS focused and rely on their teammates for survival?

Also, english is not my native langauge so please excuse any weird and non-sense making phrases.

First off all, I think this is a great move by BW and the developers and a great chance for us.

My idea would be something like a Rakghoul Apocalypse:

1 player starts off as a Rakghoul. His goal is to kill the 7 other not infected players.
Now you might say :" Great idea you nublet ! You just condemned that poor guy into a life full of faceplants!! WTG!!!"

That's why he will have help. An ever growing army of rakghoul NPC's will help him achieve this goal. The longer the fight goes on the more waves and harder mobs come will spawn and to his help.

If one of the 7 Players dies, he respawns as a rakghoul too and will fight the remaining not infected players.

The fight is over if either all players have become rakhgouls or managed to survive 15 minutes without being defeated.
Beware: at least one non infected Player has to stand in the main fighting area or the rakghouls will overrun that place and will win!
This mechanic is intended to prevent the non-infected players to run away so they don't die.
To make things easier for the Non-Rakghoul Players manable turrets that do increased damage can be used at a certain point between fights. Those turrets can of course be destroyed and have a cooldown.
That would be a lot of fun, especially if the map was very labyrinth-esc! How would the winners and losers be determined? How would the rewards be determined? The player that infected the most amount of healthy players? The player that survived longest?
