Grade 7 Space Missions TOO HARD! | 01.25.2021, 01:32 PM
I'm going to ask that both of you move on from this conversation. Your points have been made multiple times and it is clear that this discussion between you both is only going to move in circles. If you would like to continue this topic privately, you're more than welcome to do so. However, please move on from this thread if you do not have anything new to add.

EDIT: Grammar

Hi Xina_LA,

Thanks for this report concerning the emotes names.

Does this bug is encountered with all the emotes? If not, could you provide a list of the bugged ones and a video/screenshot of the bug?

Thank you.

The Conquest Crafting Objectives Need to be capped per legacy. | 01.22.2021, 05:16 PM

Nope and Nope. Waste of my time and it'll end up in hyperspace. This is a game mechanic that needs to be addressed. NOT and individual player or guild. You can NOT fix this by simply banning or sanctioning any one user. It's akin to stopping credit sellers. You whack a-mole one, and two more just sprout up. We want action. Kinda like how you all immediately at the snap of a finger address a certain ring of guilds mass ninja inviting and purging to win planets on DM, and now SF servers.

I'm not sending in a ticket to report anyone player or guild either, it's a waste of time compiling a list. However, if you want to be back logged with literally thousands of our members from 5+ guilds copy and pasting the same message into an in-game ticket with another video break down, and their signatures at the bottom we can arrange that too, I'd rather not though.

So let's just cut to the chase, limit the crafting conquest objectives to be either per character or per legacy not to exceed 5 million conquest points. That way all the smaller guilds can continue sitting there for six hours spamming one button to get their rewards on all their characters(Bogus) and not feel affected, while the larger conquest guilds actually interested in playing the game and organizing content, can actually be on a level playing field.

Thank you.

Grade 7 Space Missions TOO HARD! | 01.22.2021, 02:49 PM

Hi all - we really appreciate the discussion! I wanted to let you know we're going to take a look at Reputation rewards for Grade 5 and below missions for a future update.


a thread to debate the merits of slicing changes (post here, not there) | 01.22.2021, 02:46 PM

Great discussion in here! I wanted to jump in and let y'all know we're going to take a look at Remote Slicing for an upcoming update.


2021 Projects | 01.22.2021, 11:22 AM
Hi all,

Thought this would be a good conversation to start up to get to know y'all outside of the game.

What are some projects you're working on that you want to complete by end of year? I'm re-organizing my office and my work space. I'm not an interior designer by any means, so this is definitely a long term project for me. I plan on building some shelves, making a little area to relax when I need to step away from a monitor, and putting up some decor/art. I've found that I really like drilling holes into a wall.

I also want to learn five new dishes to cook. I recently made Eggs Benedict for the first time and nailed the sauce, so I was pretty pleased.

Let me know what's on your plate for this year! (pun intended)

Note: I don't want to spam the Dev Tracker, so I won't be able to respond to every single comment here, but know I'm reading the conversations!

That you would have had to see at the top, since it was the last thing we were discussing here.

A lot of people doubt our threads ever get read and I'm not sure what to tell them at this point.
Someone kindly let me know that I moved it to the wrong sub-forum and I thanked them for the message. It was a mistake on my part and I rectified it as soon as soon as I could.

There are many reason why people have issues with this, and yet, you continue to put forward that it's a LTP issue.
I do play the game, but I haven't gotten to this particular point of it yet. A question was asked and I was able to find an answer for it, so I responded. Conversations that happen afterward is feedback that I can gather. I read as much as I can from all the pockets of the community and do my best to respond in ways that can be helpful for players, show that someone on the team is active in the forums, and that we are doing our best to keep communication open. I don't see my post as meaningless.

Welcome to the 6.2.1 PTS! | 01.21.2021, 03:17 PM
Hey everyone!

We've updated the PTS and it is once again open for testing. Here is a list of the Uprising fixes we've implemented:
  • All: Full Level 75 rebalance of all Uprisings. This includes enemies and bosses.
  • Destroyer of Worlds: Reduced the amount of Trash by about 50%
  • Destroyer of Worlds: Adjusted range of Skurr & Velloc attacks so they now only hit players within their AoE indicators.
  • Done and Dusted: Enslaved Sand Bats now have a reasonable amount of HP
  • Firefrost: Environmental snowfall in the final boss now actually can damage the player.
  • Fractured: Final boss no longer resets randomly after defeating Lord Anril.
  • Fractured: Enemies no longer can go through a specific gate while it's closed.
  • Inferno: Kolto stations now work.
  • Landing Party: Commander Tassar can no longer cast Void Space right after Force Slam.
  • Trench Warfare: Walkers can no longer damage players with missiles while they're on turrets.
  • Trial and Error: Marlon Fenn has a new leap attack that does AoE damage in a radius around him when he lands. Can execute this ability 1-3 times in a row.
  • Trial and Error: Electric Wire Traps no longer Stun the player on anything but Master Mode
  • Trial and Error: It's no longer possible to get stuck on chairs in the final boss's room.
  • Trial and Error: Giant roving laser traps now move slower
  • Trial and Error: AoEs for Alirra Semhess are now more visible and distinct.

They even sent me a video of them doing it to demonstrate. If any developer would like it, message me too.

Conquest gained from crafting needs to be Capped per legacy. No more than Half whatever the large yield conquest goal is. It truly is ridiculous the numbers you can output with it in concert with others, something a normal human would struggle to replicate. I'm an officer in one of the largest conquest guilds on impside, and we just barely beat a guild that literally had 15 members on throughout the entire night we were running conquest in one last push. Bogus.
If you have not already, please send reports through the proper channels. I encourage you to go here and follow the steps under the platform SWTOR.

I also ask that you refrain from posting a step by step or breakdown of any type of system abuse in the forums and that you instead include that language in your report and let our team review and process.

Hi folks,

It seems that Koth's crew doesn't know when it's time to leave a party.

Our team is still working on this and when we have more info to share about this bug, we will inform the community.

Hey Deadbladey,
The Grade 7 Missions are intended to be challenging especially for players who have mastered everything in the Grade 5 Mission. You are meant to have almost max level ship gear and have knowledge of when to strategically use your abilities. However, there is little to no RNG, so that will help with planning your route and trying new techniques tp complete the mission. While Grade 7 is the most challenging piece of content for this mode of the game, it is definitely doable with the right gear and strategies.

EDIT: I'll also be moving this discussion to the appropriate sub-forum.

Thanks, everyone. I'll pass that info along. Can you also provide the names of the droid NPCs?

We are in the last stage of the Shroud story line in his assembly line. You can not finish the turret/droid battle because invariably (three times in a row) at least one droid get in the center podium with the shield and gets stuck. You can target him bit can't "see" him so attacks (even DoE) won't work. Once my healing companion got stuck in there and didn't heal.

So does anyone have a solution because I certainly don't. Bioware, any intentions on fixing this?
Can you tell me the exact quest name and the droid NPCs' names? That would help us look into this further.
