Are you alluding the companion range attack bug? I think I mentioned this elsewhere but that is actually a pretty big issue to fix. The team is working on it but it will mostly come in 6.0.

Its not only ranged companions, melee companions with Vibroswords are bugged as well. Their heal/damage is FAR worse then heal/damge from other companions (ranged and with polesabers).

Come on, Eric. 6.0??? It was broken in December!!! You should not need 10 months to fix something as basic and needed in gameplay (it affect more the 3 clases with leaps) as this.
It was suposed to be a patch after Dantoine (so at most June/July) and now you move it to september.

If it comes in 6.0, then it will not be really a fix, because major updates comes with big reworks in mechanics, including companions (as you did in 5.0 when they started to lagg behind badly). So you can hope for it but it may or may not change and chances are this issue will become like most of the long term ones that once in a while the patch notes says is fixed only for it not be be fixed at all and the patch notes and forum topics edited.

And BTW, is not just ranged comps. Melee has some issues too, they stuck too much.

Wow. That ... is a long wait. 2 seconds to break and almost a year to fix.

Fixing the other (Earlier) defects with the Comp's that have arisen with the Reunions (Battle Barks, Frozen Faces ="Pod People" would also be nice.. Kinda like a "Once and Done" instead of dragging it out and letting them go on indefinitely.
Finding their way back on the ships would be convenient as well.

***? Like really?
This very critical and essential bug is there now for 5!!! months and should have been fixed 5 months-3 days ago, and now 6.0? And we all know that even this is only a very vague "maybe" because you might mess up things even more in 6.0, like in every update. And you are busy with other stuff, the new features, anyway - in order to not mess up too much. So how slim is the chance for this being fixed at all in 6.0!? in addition to the fact that this will be almost a YEAR too late IF it happens? You really can't be serious about this.

This is a very unacceptable timeline for fixing something that used to work for seven years. Revert the code, or at the very least send a free Compendium to every character in game so they can swap out their broken companions.
