These space missions have been bugged since the launch. Only one mission was resetting for me through out the week. Now I get three to reset and can only accept one cause the other two say I am not eligible for them. I figured you'd have plenty of time to fix, but how can it work on the test server and not when you launch the patch? Is it just me or are other people having this issue. I know it is about the money cause I see new cartel items, and this is what I am saying. I want these space missions so I can make in game money. I spent my cartel coins and time to equip my ships and I can't play any of them.

While I wholeheartedly support you reminding the CS staff of this, I caution against any hope of a meaningful reply or resolution.

Consider:

1. There have been three patches since these went live, with no fixes whatsoever.

2. These bugged space missions were added to the known issues list only last week, despite dozens of forum posts on this very topic since the day they went live.

3. The only action taken by the dev team has been to nerf the credit rewards to the point where they are far less worth running than ANY OTHER non-Heroic space mission per time spent, and

4. They managed to screw up the credit nerf up on top of everything else (Regnant Station Assault offers a measly 500-some credits for completion, the veritable middle-finger to those of us waiting for fixes).

5. The availability of the missions is not the only thing that's been bugged since their errant release without adequate (any) testing, including but not limited to broken Blast Condensers not adding the stated bonus damage, broken Improved Power Conversion Modules halving missile damage in addition to blaster damage in shield mode, and mission-objective ships becoming invulnerable to weapons making the missions impossible to complete.

Keep fighting the good fight though, I for one look at the above and--as someone who genuinely enjoyed this portion of the game prior to the whole "Heroic Space Missions" debacle--am going to get my last couple characters to 50 and get the hell out, pre-ordered Hutt Cartel be damned. The lack of follow-up support and deafening silence from any staff member has never been more apparent than with regards to these space missions. The mind truly boggles.

Hi folks. I just wanted to step in and let you know that we have identified a fix for the availability issues with the Heroic Space Combat missions, and it'll be deployed in an upcoming patch. Thanks for your understanding while we worked on a solution.

It's about time! I genuinely enjoy space missions but there is no incentive to do them outside of the weekly missions, which for my characters have only been giving 3 or so a week.

I hope this future patch comes sooner rather than later, because often the only reason I log on in a day is to do these space missions.

"The fix will be in upcoming patch" I heard 2 patches ago :P But lets give them benefit of doubt and hope that they will fix it on Tuesday.

Too late I canceled my subscription a few days ago because of this issue.I dont even believe at this point a patch will be coming anytime soon, just words.If by some miracle they release a patch, it will probably still be bugged after it.Then what, another few months to look into it again?Have fun waiting people, I'm done.

While I dont think it is worth unsubbing over, it is very disappointing. I am glad that you guys seem to have at least one that you can run each week... ever since maybe the second week this went live, I have not been able to do ANY of them... The missions just aren't there at all and it makes me sad.

Thank you Amber for the Dev response. Here is hoping this fix does come sooner rather than later since I for one enjoy the space missions as well from time to time, and the missing black hole comms make me sad

Thank you Amber, that is what we like to hear (anything would be great most times, IE: That this is a known bug, that we have identified, or we are stilling looking into it).

Thanks

Thank you! It was driving me crazy, was just about to submit a ticket and post on here. Itching to do some more space missions.

Would be nice if they would deploy this soon...
