Unsubscribing because you can't do your companion is going too far... Just wait till its fixed. I'm level 41 and worried about more issues, like for example Sentinels are the worst class in pvp...

Tank is sweet because you can go in and stand there and hit for like 1-2k a hit, and own. Although I've seen a lot of sentinals with good K-D ratio's and they do pretty awesome in PvP.

Off topic though haha

Bioware, please fix Kira... fixing her for new players only is not acceptable. I'm level 40, finished Hoth and have all my companions. Max affection with Kira, and still haven't received a single quest from her after The Defector. It's been too long with out an acknowledgement or update on the issue. I'm actually starting to get a little annoyed watching update after update be implemented, without any mention of addressing the bug.

I have high hopes that Bioware will do the right thing and fix the issue for ALL players. If they don't, or tell us they have no plans to do so... that would be enough for me to cancel my subscription out of principle. No long winded post about why I'm quitting, just straight up cancellation for poor customer service. If it comes to that, then I suggest everyone do the same.

oh my goddess...this many pages on the issue? does anyone actually READ the patch notes?

Hello everyone! We appreciate you joining us to play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, and we hope you enjoy the game. As MMORPGs are large and complex projects, inevitably we do discover issues that may affect gameplay. We're working constantly to fix anything that will affect the player experience, but for now this is our current list of high priority in-game known issues.


This list of known issues was last updated on: January 4th, 2012

For the Jedi Knight mission "The Defector", flirting with Kira Carsen during the Ship Intercom conversations following the events at the Abandoned Mining Base will prevent players from being able to receive further companion conversations from Kira Carsen.

Workaround: Avoid flirting with Kira Carsen during "The Defector" mission. Players who have already flirted with Kira will need to wait for a patch before they will be able to have conversations with Kira but will still be properly accumulating affection with her in the meantime.

all of that comes from the patch notes..is a known issue..THERE is your ackowledgement. they are working on it. For future reference its under the known issues setting in customer service. and for those of you who are complaining about it you guys really should be ashamed of yourselves. you at the very least GET the options to even engage in romance, those of us who are more inclined to Same Sex Romances don't even GET the option to engage in them. lemme let you in on a spoiler secret...it doesn't really ruin the class story if you engage in it or not...you can still do it AFTER the class quests are all done. so go forth and play your game..or don't..its your choice..but there are more important issues to worry about than Kira (game clinet stability comes to mind) and as a known issue they'll fix it when they can. now go game peeps.

Why yes, princess, we DO read the patch notes. That exact text has been there since several days after launch. That exact text has been there since before they "fixed" the issue for new players and left everyone else in the dark. The Dark Side flirt option (allegedly) works fine now and they've left the "workaround" there to make it look like they're paying attention.

Bioware hasn't provided a real update on the situation since before patch 1.02. Try understanding the situation a bit before you come into the thread on your silver steed.

I've long since rerolled my JK, but misinformation and people (people like you) hanging off Bioware's every word are the worst part of this thread.

We shouldn't be ashamed of ourselves. This is an issue that has been known since Beta, and almost everyone here who has experienced it has benched their characters because of the issue. We got a single dev post early on claiming it would be fixed "in a few days", and "a little longer" for those of us that already have the glitch. 2 weeks later, we get a patch that fixes it for new players, and no word since on whether or not this will be fixed for those already bugged soon, or if it will take weeks, or whatever. It's upsetting that everyone is so vocal in this thread about how they've had to abandon their main chars, and Bioware isn't making any more posts telling us what they're doing, how long it will take, whether it would be just faster to reroll, etc. We've got nothing, and this is making a lot of players not want to play the game.

Maybe it wouldn't ruin the romance for you to have all of the romance options after the fact, after the main story, completely unconnected to the main plot of the game. But if I just wanted to see that, I'd wait for a youtube vid of the romance convos. We want the narrative flow that the romance should have. We want the romance to connect with the things we are doing in the main plot. We want to have those little bits of dialog during our class quests that connect the main plot and the romance subplot.

I agree with you that the lack of homosexual romance options is really, really crappy. But that issue doesn't invalidate this one. We're both stuck so that we can't engage in the romance plots that we wanted to. The only difference is, we were told we'd be able to, and now we can't, and we're not being told when we can expect to be able to start playing our chars again. Homosexual romances should definitely be a huge priority on features to be added, but fixing what's already there should be higher, I think.

I get that a lot of this thread has a lot of anger and irrational hatred of Bioware. But most of us here are people who have accidentally glitched ourselves through a dialog option, without any warning, and are now just not playing our mains because of it. We're paying 15 a month to be able to play this game. The least we should be able to get on an issue like this is an ETA, or them telling us that it may take too long so we can just bite the bullet and reroll. We shouldn't be ashamed.
