The platform on Dromund Kass that you fall through was reported X times. If they even can't fix this when reported why bother...It seems there like 1 dude left on their team and thats make the whole company seem unprofessional. Welcome the fanboys for this one!

Remember seeing this bug on the PTS runs posted on youtube, and Guess what its still there when i'm running it on live today.

So, NO bug corrections at all? Only drinking coffee during work hours to make the day go faster? Just wondered...

Hey there,

This issue was actually fixed on PTS, but unfortunately it was still present in this build and we were unable to fix it before the update went live. I posted about it in the Bug Report forums to try to give players a heads up. It is something we are aware of and are going to get fixed ASAP.

Please let us know in the Bug Report forums if you encounter any other issues.

It can be completed by standing under the button and the entire team press it.

It is a annoying bug but it is not gamebreaking

So why didn't you simply delay the live patch until everything was in order?

Because then they would actually have to do some work, and fix the problem now, rather than leaving it a few weeks/months.

Because the bug isn't worth delaying the patch for?

Gamebreaking was not the point of this post....It was about what we reported as a bug but went live...Now we know why.

No. They fixed it and didn't include the fix into the built that went live today. There is a subtle difference there.
