My concern about hacking not getting addressed | 01.09.2013, 07:40 PM

Not exactly the same as you quoted, but we can say this:

"We're aware of the speed hacking that is occurring in the game; rest assured we are making adjustments to prevent it from continuing; furthermore anyone that gets caught using it will have their account suspended and/or banned."

Want to Test RotHC (and live in Austin)? | 01.09.2013, 02:59 PM
Hello,

I have been fortunate enough to be a part of some of the on-site player tests that we've hosted here at the studio and I can honestly say it has been a tremendous help. So if you happen to be in the area and have some time to do it we would really appreciate any feedback.

As a UI Programmer, having players come on site gives me an opportunity to observe where UI may or may not be working and hear first hand what their suggestions are for what features they might want to see. It is also great to be able to ask them questions on the fly that the discussions bring up.

Hey, guys --

We care a lot about the fact that you care about the appearances of your characters. In fact, the Mod system is my baby, largely because it allows players to customize their appearance to your liking. We have another, similar, one of my babies coming in the near future, which will allow even greater customization (you guys may have seen me hinted about it in recent interviews). Short form: this is real important to me, and we're not happy that we've created a situation that makes people unhappy. We didn't think through the ramifications of the bugfix that we've made, and we're acutely aware of the financial angle (cartel coins as well as in-game credits on the GTN) involved.

We are still discussing potential fixes to the issue -- and there will be fixes -- but there are ramifications to all fixes. Players should keep in mind that previously, we had players who were upset in the other direction. We have a couple of directions that we can go, but we need to explore a couple of things, and regardless, it is not a fix that can happen instantaneously. I do think we can get something in a patch very soon.

We are pretty sure we can avoid a solution that forces players to spend additional cartel coins, and I'm not interested in letting a situation linger that leaves the player's faith in what we are offering on the cartel market in a reduced state. It is incredibly important to me, and the rest of the SW:TOR team, that players have a high degree of confidence in the market as a whole, and how we deal with issues like this. This has been a learning experience for us, and won't happen again.

In short: we'll fix this. Give us a little time to do so.

BW: you *broke* the lock/unlock Toolbar button... | 01.08.2013, 05:08 PM
Hello!

Just so everyone is aware, you can see the current lock status by reading the tooltip on the right (or wherever you might have put the "large tooltip" if you have moved it with the interface editor) like few people have pointed out.

Chicktopus - I too thought initially it was a missing art asset, but it was accidently updated with the recent addition of the bank and inventory sorting. You'll see the arrow icon there for the direction of the sort.

BW: you *broke* the lock/unlock Toolbar button... | 01.08.2013, 01:21 PM
Hi everyone. We appreciate your reports about the quickbar lock icon becoming an arrow. The change was unintentional, and we'll be reverting it in an upcoming patch.

Fix section x | 01.08.2013, 12:26 PM
We deployed a fix for this mission with the most recent patch. The patch note is:

March of the Dread Guard: Players now use the remote device recovered from nearby enemy NPCs to free all prisoners. Only 5 prisoners now need to be freed (down from 12), and leader NPCs count towards this goal.

If you are still experiencing issues with this mission, please post details regarding the trouble in this thread.
