That is a null argument. I work in quality assurance so I know that bug free software is a myth. However this is a very clear case of an engineer not testing his code and QA not doing its job. The fix was supposed to make probes spawn more consistently. Instead they no longer spawn. So not only did it not fix the issue it also broke existing functionality. Any capable tester worth his salt would have seen this happening. Even if the engineers have a big issue coding this then at the VERY least QA should have seen this.

The issue with the matrix cubes was also something that could easily have been seen by a default testing 101 update test. Again it is so blatantly staring people in the face that I for the life of me cannot understand why it was not caught. If I make mistake like this I can pack my bags and go find another job.

Oh it's a good bet this will happen here. Every server's chat is full of hate about the issue right now, and there are similar threads running on the general forum already. This mistake is going to cost them quite a bit,
Yo. Droid companions need an operations vendor, too. My extra coms have to go somewhere, and I'd prefer SCORPIO to Kaliyo.

I consider myself to be VERY patient with this game, but I have kinda reached the end of my thether now.

Please dont say all MMO's have these sorts of issues, I played WOW for 4 years and there were some very minor bugs but nothing like this, this is just incompetence and a lack of testing (caused by funding issues?).

I am bored enough with end game content, the guild has been farming it for months on mains and alts, to not be able to play it after a "fix" is just ridiculous.

So is the ticketing process.

This game has so much potential, just logged WOW and realised how old the game is compared to SWTOR, but I fear with EA pulling the purse strings and no passion for developping this game and now with the F2P thing being progressed my fears are playing out, absolute disaster.

The game is great, but EA have shown absolutely no faith in it and now they are force choking every last penny out of it.

I too am in the software biz. I know bugs happen. Unintended consequences sometimes bite you in the rear. No matter how hard you try you cannot test ALL variations. However...

This is just utter bush league!

Your QA must be non existent if a code change goes live that was meant to fix something but actually breaks it. This is grounds for termination in my opinion. You are a world class software company and this kind of stuff occurs regularly!

How many people's whole weekly raid schedule did you just screw up? If you don't fire someone for this please IM me their phone number because I have some encouraging words for them.

EAware why do you keep breaking things with every patch? Your superiors should be fired for releasing such half assed untested fixes and patches.

Their patches have been pretty good overall. This is an exception. For a game where patches break everything, give EverQuest a try.
