This basically...The "glitch" basically just puts the color of your offhand item for the throw.
I use it as a means of distraction all the time. In PvP my jug uses copper, but my buddie's tank jug uses red...so my generator uses a red crystals o when I throw my lightsaber it looks like he did it. You would be surprised how many people turn and attack him after I throw a "red" saber at them.

That's cool, I was thinking about switching colors to see if that's what it was. Good to know.

They will fix this, if they know about this, in due time. Why not go to the right place in the forums or open a ticket about this, instead of whining & making demands?

And as for more important glitches/bugs, problems, start reading other forum posts.
Atm there is a serious glitch with some users not being able to use the in game CC option. There was a couple bugs about relics stacking improperly, I'm not sure if those have been fixed yet. The free speeder that was given last week, will not work for 49 or below, when it should work for level 10+. The list goes on and on. Minor things mainly, but some are way more important than an aesthetic bug, that not all people see.
Paying them gives me the right to demand anything reasonable. and this is reasonable demand. Part of paying a subscription is so bioware can pay people to fix issues like this.

For the record, I submitted a bug report over a month ago about this issue. I also opened a general ticket. They told me that it is a glitch, therefore this issue can't be resolved by customer service.

So yeah I have taken those steps. They didn't work. That's why I'm here complaining on the forums trying to get the developers attention.

I know this a serious bug which needs to be fixed...But is it wrong that I kinda like it when I throw my saber and it is a different color?

Its not wrong for you to like it but, I think its weird because it doesn't make any sense for it to randomly change colors. More people should be upset about this because its not being fixed in a timely manner. I can understand liking this glitch at first but, after a while it gets really annoying. This should have been fixed a long time ago. same thing goes for the no info error for Reverse Engineering dread relics(level 50). That glitch prevents you from learning the schematic. That glitch first occurred in April. It still hasn't been fixed. The developer team should be fixing stuff much faster than this. Instead, They are probably on vocation in Hawaii enjoying smoothies.

Paying a subscription gives you the right to post on the forum, and demand anything you want.

Bioware has a right to ignore your demands.

You're paying a game subscription. It doesn't make you part of the development team or give you power to set development priorities. Bioware said they know about your bug. The fact that they haven't fixed it yet should tell you that they feel its a very minor bug and that the developers are working on things they feel are more important. I will admit that I would agree with that assessment. Nothing is displayed in a confusing manner. Nothing is failing to display. This is purely cosmetic, and not even on a visual that is continuously visible. It's a minor color difference on a 2 second ability animation that occurs --at most-- a couple times a minute. The 'Pink Assassin' bug and "Unmatched Cutscene Equipment" bugs are far more annoying that this.

Until you're willing to pay the $50 per-hour, per-person cost of fixing the bug (and this is not a "one person for 10 minutes" bug), then you don't get to decide what bugs are fixed and what gets left for some other week.

REQUEST: Bioware: Do not fix this bug. There are many other bugs that are far more important. Work on them first.

ETA: Clarification -- I didn't mean to say "Do not fix this bug ever". I meant "Do not fix this bug now". Sorry for the miscommunication.

What would they do without you. They are lucky to have you and your wisdom.

I can understand that there are probably bugs out there that are far more important than a visual fx bug.

However, telling them to flat out not fix a bug is ridiculous.
