Companion Respawn Fix is way Overdue

It's just been way too long for something this large of an inconvenience to not have been fixed. Patch after patch after patch has sailed by without so much as a spoken word or acknowledgement by BW about this issue.

As a player who groups with 2 good friends in game, we often use my HK companion for extra DPS but companions stop respawning almost right away which means we have 3 possible choices right now:

1. Regroup, which fixes the issue for a few minutes.

2. Stop and pull out companion manually, which isn't helpful if we get attacked or draw aggro first.

3. Don't use a companion.

All 3 of these choices have draw backs that no player in SWTOR should be forced to deal with because the system should be working correctly and hasn't been for far too long.

Workarounds like the 3 mentioned above are meant to provide a potential solution until a bug is fixed, not used as an excuse not to have to fix a bug. Sure, there are far worse bugs in game, but few have lasted longer while being more irritating than this one nor encountered by group players more often.

Please address this issue.

It's crazy and doesn't only happen when you're grouped. It happens constantly and irritatingly.

Glad to see I'm not alone, I was getting worried for a bit.

I can't even see Vector naked :-(

But yeah, Companion issue is rather annoying -- especially when you aren't paying attention to it, and die numerous times because your companion isn't there >.<

If I had a dollar for every time that happened, I'd buy a controlling interest in EA and have the bug fixed.

I agree, we deserve a fix for this!

If spawning companions cost CC they would have this fixed by tomorrow.

If it doesn't affect CM/CC, bug is low priority.

Been waiting for the hyperspace client crash fix for over 6 months.

I forgot about the hyperspace bug! Yes, that one is also super annoying.
