If this was a known problem going into today then why not tells us so we can avoid it? I don't get letting us fall into these situations when you can help us avoid these? Love to see us fail much? Why not update the patch notes now so people that start to play later on see this and know to avoid it?

You sure that you submitted more bug reports than me and you know better how to do it? When you reach close to 3 digit ingame bug reports call me again and i will reactivate my main account especially for you to show you that i still have more.

This is a known issue and we'll be working to address it!
Was this issue known BEFORE you guys released this stuff, because, if so, you guys should have left 1.3 on the PTS until the fix was in. Releasing broken features is terrible. You guys already do it enough. I'd rather wait an extra week to one month for content and features that are significantly less buggy.

Actually.

The lesson here is: Don't expect anything that Bioware releases for this game to work properly because only 50 people bothered to test it anyhow.

this has been added to our known issues thread, along with several other known issues for 1.3. We update this regularly with high-visibility issues (specifically those we no longer need reports on), and will continue to update it as needed with any further 1.3 issues.

The only problem is that the Known Issues thread itself isn't highly visible. I lurk the forums everyday and even now I think I know where to go looking for this, but I never see it referenced anywhere so I always forget about it.

The problem is not enough people log on PTS to actually test and.try and break the current.build. These kind of.bugs only happen on when a large population play the game and such a situation rises. so even if it wasn't reported doesn't mean the bug is new. Just means nobody stumbled upon it :-) just relax there's always bugs After an update. Its not gamebreaking like 1.1 or 1.2 it's just a pain in the arse.

Can't wait to play tonight!

You missed the entire phrase "...was this a known issue BEFORE..." That makes the whole point of not enough people testing on the PTS irrelevant. If it was a known issue before release, it's just terrible implementation. I don't know how many times I've been in other LFG groups in other MMO's and we lose someone and someone in the group says, "Let me ask a guildie". But this bug makes it so you can't do that. Great idea that they want to increase the social activity by specifically having a social feature (guilds and guild chat) not be a part of it right now because they'd rather rush content and features out that aren't even close to fully functional just so they can say, "Hey, we got 1.3 out in June with Server Transfers! Aren't we awesome!".

In short: No. That is not quality release. It's these kind of things that continually stock pile until I'll quit the game one day because of terrible practices such as this.

To be a known issue it has to b discovered by testers I logged in PTS every night to test and get the title to use the off tool. BUT apart from the first few days I never got a queue pop up on either my 2 lvl 50 or my lvl 38. There was max 30 peeps on the fleet wo I
