I avoided the spoiler but it would be nice to get some more content for the romances who haven't had any more scenes since their return.

Why do people assume that the problem with the patch is a bug?

They only spoke very vaguely about a "last minute issue" which they still need to understand fully. That can mean anything. Maybe this "issue" is that the patch is simply not ready coded, but they thought it would be by now. And the reason they don't tell a new date for the patch is that they don't know yet when they will actually have the patch ready? Some dev didn't deliver their codelines yet or whatever.

I wouldn't be surprised.

If there is a specific bug or actual issue, they could (and probably would?) have been a bit more specific like "we found a bug in the new stronghold and pest patrol has been booked for tomorrow".
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free 10 x inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

That said, our investigations into the exact cause of the bug are still ongoing, so we don't feel comfortable calling this a fully "fixed" issue. As it currently seems unlikely that we will get such confirmation in time for the release, we wanted to share these details for those among you who are justifiably cautious where your romances are involved. If you’re concerned about potentially missing the cinematic lines referencing this romance, you may want to hold off on starting “Signal from Noise” when it becomes available in update 6.1.
Did no-one see this? Devs, have you really not tested / run through the Scourge romance to see if it runs as intended? Are you expecting us to do that knowing full well the/any errors will not be retro fixed? Is anyone who romanced Scourge prepared to sacrifice their character's romance just to check this out? I'm not.

I remade my Knight with a 70 token until I get the chance to replay him normally (mostly because I was concerned this wouldn't get fixed) so I'll likely run it on the token one first to see the romance, and then test it on my other version of the character (the one who has the romance bug) to see if it plays or not. I intend to not play the broken Knight anymore anyway so I'm willing to test it out.

But it still is pretty crappy that it has not been tested by the Devs to see if it will run or not. If I didn't have the token version of my Knight, I certainly wouldn't risk it and I'd be pretty annoyed I couldn't deal with this Vitiate stuff on my Knight first.

I've lost romances on all but two of my characters. All the romances with Theron, Lana, and Koth disappeared somewhere along the line, despite taking all the Flirt options I could find. Romances with class companions survived the chapters. Customer service told me each time that nothing can be done.

(Interesting note: All the characters who lost their romances are female Agents. Yes, I have a bunch of agents. Light side loyal to the Empire, light side double agent, dark side loyal to the Empire, dark side independent, etc.)

Given that you realize how important romances are, and how deeply disappointing it is to try to run a story repeatedly with variations only to be forced into the same generic dialog repeatedly, are there any plans to add a fix? Perhaps something the players could manage themselves, like a Romance Terminal, where we can set who our current romance is?

It would be nice to go back and replay some of those chapters with the romance reinstated, and even better to go forward knowing those fun story moments will take place.

Hey folks,

We have passed final testing and will be deploying tomorrow! Dan will be updating maintenance timing in a bit but expect downtime tomorrow morning to push out 6.1.

Thanks all.
