It did come up on PTS and I have been posting a few times how the devs needed to fix it and the false positive Trojan (see the customer service forum) but they ignored me I'm sorry to say.

Btw I strongly hope anyone who wanted to transfer did it already, the copy process for PTS found those slots to be bad data and removed any fitted augment to the inventory and killed the slot. If the transfer process is similar it could do some damage.

So they were already aware of this and still went ahead and released the patch. Bunch of amateurs with no consideration for anyone's time, sounds like EA should of fired a few more people.

If anyone is wondering you can go in game and type "Augment" into the support center. Among the knowledge base questions is one about level 50 gear with Mk1 augment slots. If you click on it you get an answer stating that ALL gear made prior to 1.3 has an Mk1 augment slot NO MATTER WHAT.

In the FAQ we were told that gear would get an augment slot equal to it's crafted level -OR- whatever the highest level augment is.

In reality no matter what the old slots are MK1. This means all your previously crit crafted level 50 gear is now worthless. That includes stuff like War Hero. So I have to ask why deceive us then change it at the last minute? It doesn't make any sense. If this was the best you could do why wasn't all the gear automatically defaulted to Mk5 instead of Mk1?

It's dumb that augments are tiered anyway. Gah, glad I spent 100k on that armor that's now useless.

It is a bug, level 50 gear should get converted to MK-6 augment slot directly. We couldn't test this on the PTS because there was another bug on the PTS that basically removed all the augment slots from all your gear.

The knowledge base question seems to imply it's not a bug at all.
