Wow...I appreciate the honesty...I'm very disappointed in that answer, but I truly appreciate you finally addressing it and I hope it's fixed soon.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Same here. It is sad such game breaking (at least game experience ruiner) bug is going to take that long to get fixed... Well, at least it is going to get fixed (hopefully) at some points.

EDIT: typo

Hey folks,

Quick update on timing. We need a bit more time to finalize the patch and to verify all of the fixes that we have listed above. We are going to be moving the maintenance to Thursday, same time window.

Thanks everyone. I will work on getting all messaging updated to reflect the change.

Does this include Darth Marr and possibly other companions that we can get temporarily when playing chapters and leaving their instance?
Pretty please?
Darth Marr shall rise again.

I will provide more details as I get them.

Thanks for the info - many of us were wondering if the companion issue was being looked at. Good to see that it is

This issue needs to be fixed sooner than super soon. When people return to the game and their companion just stands 50 feet behind them and lets them die it doesn't make a good impression.

Not to mention how frustrating it is for people running dailies, heroics or chapters where you can't change companion.

Fast track that ish. Please.

I know this isn't the specific forum for this issue, but can someone direct me to a area where I can let the devs know about a gameplay limiting bug with the companions after KOTFE starts?

I have not noticed this before, because I have not played GSF in 3 years, but once you start KOTFE, even if you get your companions back, they are not unlocked in your GSF panel and also they cost requisition. I am not looking for a refund, just simply to fix it so that when we get our companions back or new companions through the storyline, it lets us use them in GSF like the original game did/does.


Thanks!
I love Star Wars.

I agree with this 100%, I've been playing again for a few days now and it's been driving me crazy how frequently my companion just stands there and does nothing even when I manually tell them to attack. With such a major bug existing I can't say how long this return will last.
