Hey everyone,

As many of you have noticed since yesterday’s downtime, Heroic Missions are now repeatable instead of having a weekly lockout. While this is a bug and we are going to fix it with 5.0.1 next week, we don’t consider this an exploit. Thanks for those that have sent their reports of the issue, and enjoy your plethora of Heroics!

When do you plan to address the rest of this 5.0 mess that has been bestowed upon us?

Because lalalalalala...can't hear you.

Here's an idea, why not leave it in place since you made this an almost impossible grind? Even with them in place the average player won't hit your weekly cap. Some people have more than one PC you know.

Any heads up as to what we can expect in 5.0.1?

As an aside where is our "Community Manager"........I have never seen a community in more need of managing than this one right now and he seems to have disappeared.

When can we expect some "official" response from our concerns/gripes/************ around 5.0 and GC in particular?

Most likely he's on vacation... all of EAWare has traditionally up and walked out on us for a month and a half break this time of year.

Tait... addressing repeatable heroic missions is pretty much near the bottom of the list of issues that actually need addressing in this game right now. Tell your bosses that this sort of willful blindness and deafness to the complaints and concerns of your customers is going to ruin this game's profits for them; as more and more people leave the game, there's fewer left to milk for CM purchases.

How can they fix a looting/disintergration issue and end up unlocking Heroics???

I am so confused right now, this seems deliberate to me :| So I'm either prepared for a massive Nerf or I'm prepared to have a few things fixed...

My credits are on the Nerf.

One of the loading screen "tips" says something like "Most of heroic missions are repeatable daily" or smth like that. I never saw it before 5.0 Are you completely sure it's a bug?

Why do you consider it a bug? It's not like heroic missions are worth a lot of cxp to start with, compared to most other activities.
How many and how quickly do we need to complete heroic missions for them to compare to other GC activities?
