Hey folks,

Last note on the exploit for today. We fully believe that the issue is resolved at this point. However, parts of it are tricky to verify with absolute certainty. If you happen to notice that you are able to use this exploit at any point going forward, please cease using it and contact me privately, immediately. Reminder, here is what was happening:

This meant someone could infinitely hit the accept button over and over again and reap those rewards.

This created a bad situation for two reasons. First, it was extremely exploitable. Two, someone could get stuck where they couldn't progress because of their Mission not completing.
Thanks everyone!

Oh...another exploit. whose counting anyway....

I am so glad I don't do heroics that often. I am scared I will find exploits in this game in general, due to how buggy and unpredictable of late it has been. If anything; this Galactic Command system has taught the devs and the player-base, it's that if you leave bugs in your code (for a system linked to everything in the game) they will totally affect end-game gearing and the community...it has totally exposed the bugs in this game.

GC is a good idea. But you have strayed way away from your promise to keep operations as the highest rewarding content...as it is the hardest and largest group content. But we can expect a fix 6 months after early access...seriously guyz. Do some metrics for a week and make a decision, it's not that difficult. You should have about 2 months of metrics by now anyway. It should be somewhere between 2x or 4x what we are currently getting based on the other content. 6 months after that is 6.0? why bother if GC tweaking is only finished 6 months in...and I know you'll be changing stuff in the summer regardless.

An apology would go a long way for 5.0. What are your plans to get raiders back and PvP teams? No-one wants to do ranked PvP on our server any more as there are maybe 4 or 5 groups per night. Don't ask about Ranked warzones, they are relics of a bygone era. I would rather wait for a warzone pop than ******* Rishi Arena again.

But P.S. DO NOT, leave these sorts of bugs in 5.2 War for Iokath please. I want to enjoy the game again, not be fearful of whether or not my mission is completing/progressing as intended. I am just going through the content.

Hmm, seems sort of fitting for an intelligence operative in a fascist dictatorship to hack and override rule of law, but I feel like doing that on a Sith Warrior would make sense as well, because who's more privileged and entitled than a SW?

I just imagine everyone waiting around for us to introduce an exploit so everyone can start spamming my inbox and CS with reports to get their reward lol.

I applaud the team's quick action resolving this issue. Kudos.

(See, I'm not a hater all the time)
Let this sink in, this game is Free to Play, boasts one of the most popular IPs on the planet and yet 76.47% of the servers are empty.

Nice communication and action on this issue.

One question though ... what have you done with the real Bioware Austin?! :P
