So.. I just did Xeno II yesterday... 2 wipes, brought him down the 3rd time.

People kept leaving.. Some after the first wipe, some the second, some when they saw there were group members with only tionese or who were doing it for the first time... We spent so much time trying to get people to replace the ones leaving

Anyway as for repair costs 2 wipes 23k credits.... now this is more than before the bug fix bot not an insane amount per wipe like i was seeing before, and I have not changed a thing in my gear.

Anyone else experiencing this or is it just me? Have they implemented any stealth partial fix maybe?

Im wearing ALL oranges with 60% BH 40% columi

Chest is lvl 50 orange, Pants is Alderaan social, gloves, boots etc are of various levels.
I used to be a Jedi like you - until I took a blaster bolt to the knee

Bulwark always makes me sad. I mean, people in full BH not interrupting Bulwark Smash... Sentinels killing the little repair droids instead of cc'ing them... Not even asking directly helps.

If you CC them, won't another set spawn when the timer hits anyway?

CCing them saves a few seconds of dps. Not super important imo.

Yeah, that's been my experience but I haven't done that FP on HM in a while so just checking.

Back on topic, it seems like the posts here are slowing down. Have so many given up and left? Or stopped caring and gone back to playing and just dealing with it?

Me, I have ~24 days left on my now cancelled sub, hoping EA pipes up and says something, yet not daring to hope they'll fix it.

Yes, another set will spawn. The cc'd ones will disappear.

The problem with this credit sink is there is nothing tangible to go along with it. Give me a speeder or a convenient. Apply a cost to the quick travel each use. Like the 1k fleet passes. I don't complain because the service is worth 1k for the convieneience of travelling. Charge me for using world speeders. Charge me for quick travel. Stop with the insane raiding costs. It's gettig out of hand and theres nothing worse than spending money (real or fake) and getting nothing in return.

The window for fixing this is rapidly closing. Once the players that have unsubbed actually have their subs expire and get involved in other games they will be much less likely to come back once the devs decide to do their jobs.

I dropped my sub as well. It's probably a combination of events slowing posts down. People have said all they can, now it's more about reporting their experiences in game and how its affected them which is great as it gives developers more to work with, if they are paying attention.. It's also probably a feeling disgust and anger with Bio refusing to say a single thing. I am guessing that sometime very soon they will announce a patch and there will be an adjustment of sorts and with that a large portion will be happy and satisfied. I like this game, it's just I've never seen such an apathetic company like this. Maybe it's their business model and I just don't understand it's intent.
It is easy to be brave from a distance.

I am afraid i do not share your optimism, I see this going either way a reduction or cartel surely it must have been spotted.

Just one response and no update very strange me thinks, I thought they had confirmed that this is working as intended?
