Discussion Topic: Discussion Topics! | 07.13.2017, 12:37 PM
Hey folks,

For this weeks discussion topic, we want to talk about... discussion topics! What I mean by that is, what are the things you want us to have a discussion about in the future. For context, here are some of our previous topics:

Galactic Starfighter
Bolster Changes for PvP
Master Mode Ops Drops

When you make a recommendation, I would ask that you be as specific as possible. We try to have the topics be guided so that there is focus to the feedback. Ex: "What new game mode would you like to see in a Warzone" is better than "what would you like to see added for PvP."

Give us your thoughts on future topics!

Big Mistake in Cartel ad on Launcher | 07.12.2017, 04:55 PM
Thank you for the heads up on this, passing it on to the team. I am pretty sure the Companion in the store is correct, not the launcher/blog which states Mount. Let me verify.

No need to PM us, or bump the thread! Posting here in bug reports is the correct thing to do (we don't respond to every thread). I have sent this additional info on to the team, thanks for the report.

Change to Cartel Color Crystals and Weapon Tunings with Legacy Weapons | 07.11.2017, 04:42 PM
Hey all,

Let’s review today’s Crystals and Weapon Tuning change and what caused it. With Patch 5.2.2, we made a change so everyone could take advantage of the Weapon Tunings across their account. We did that by adding them into Collections. This is the same process we use for Flairs, Armor Sets, Mounts, Crystals, Weapons, Pets, and more. This appeared to be a very welcomed change, but over the past month we found out players were subverting the collection system by using an exploit related to Legacy Weapons. Sure, you can argue it’s been that way for a long time, but Weapon Tunings were new and being able to use them across your entire account is a cool benefit.

What happened is some players would add the Tuning to a legacy weapon, send to an Alt, remove it on that Alt, re-add it to the weapon, which would then incorrectly unlock it in Collections on that toon. They would then send that weapon to all of their toons and perform the same process. Thus circumventing the entire collection system and obtaining Weapon Tunings for their legacy without having to pay for it. As everyone has pointed out, Crystals sold via the Cartel Market could also be collection unlocked this way, and in fact, as players have clearly stated in this thread, they’ve been doing that for a very long time.

We did not impact the ability to use Crystals and Tunings in Legacy Weapons and we did not prevent you transferring mods, hilts, barrels, augments, or enhancements, through your legacy weapons (which I do all the time). This change did create a situation for all of us who are using Collections properly where there is an added step (and credit cost) to moving weapons. Our plan with Patch 5.4 in August is to resolve this new issue by allowing Collection Unlocked Crystals and Tunings to be transferred using your legacy weapons as you did previously (no cost/no removing of the items first).

As most of you already know, we do not communicate details about exploits and typically only acknowledge their existence after a fix has been deployed. In this case, we included it with our Patch Notes yesterday so you knew ahead of time what we were doing today. I also know this makes some of you unhappy, but the loophole needed to be closed and we did that in today’s patch.

Items Missing from Deepwater Essentials Bundle? | 07.11.2017, 02:13 PM
Hey!

Good catch on this. I checked into this with the team and it seems that the source information for the items you listed is incorrect across the board. The items that are in the Deepwater Essentials Bundle are only the items listed in the CM tooltip, which are:
  • 1 Manaan: Fountain of Tranquility
  • 1 News Kiosk: Most Wanted
  • 1 Large Aquarium
  • 1 Aquarium: Laa Scalefish
  • 1 Aquarium: Faa Scalefish
  • 1 Explorer Supplies Set
  • 1 Manaan: Lounge Set
  • 1 Manaan: Office Set
  • 1 Manaan Patio Set
  • 1 Manaan Floor Lamp
  • 1 Selkath Citizen: Lost
  • 1 Selkath Cyborg: Surly
  • 1 Selkath Officer: Patient
  • 4 Flag: Manaan (Hanging)
As a note, I included the actual item names in the list above. The CM tooltip has a couple of typos for the actual item names (which the team is aware of).

The Iokath items you listed below are similarly not found in the Dread Warlord Pack. All of the decos you listed below have not been released yet, their source information is incorrect.

We apologize for any confusion. Again, please refer to the tooltip in the Cartel Market for the Deepwater Essentials Bundle to see exactly what you are purchasing. Thanks everyone.

This issue should now be resolved. If you run into it again, please let me know the server you are on and what faction you are playing.

Thanks!

Good call Jerba! I misread the OP's post, what Jerba stated is correct. You need to donate the decos through the Stronghold Management Window.
