you do realize that bioware has claimed that they're working on it correct?

i.e it'll be fixed, we just don't know when
No it means unspecified period of time...

We need to know if it will take another 2 weeks for the next fix to come out so we can decide to reroll or not. Even after their first ETA is wrong, they can still update it,make a second ETA and apologize.

Again, BioWare failed to update us in regular basis and pissed alot of customers off who couldve rerolled and be at the same point as their current JK.
As I recall (presuming you're referring to the one on page 6), that ETA was for CLOSING the bug window - regarding the fix for those hit by it, it was

It'll take us a bit longer to get a fix out for characters already experiencing the issue,

No time window given, and unfortunately, "a bit longer" is getting frustratingly long. And I'm not begrudging people getting upset. What I AM getting miffed over are the repeated cries of "This should have been fixed in Beta!", even though it was only recently that they nailed down what caused the bug to begin with. That coupled with the outcries of (essentially) "spread the word that the Devs don't care" are overreactions, primarily because it might bring down what is easily the best MMO I've ever played, in spite of the bugs.

Remember folks - the game is officially less than a month old right now. This has been one of the smoothest launches I've ever heard about, and the Devs, I'm sure, are still adjusting to the monumental task before them, as this is new ground for BioWare. Pressure them about fixing, keep complaining and asking for updates - that's good to do! But don't threaten to quit the game, or tell others not to buy it simply because of this one significant flaw that might not even appear 2 weeks from now.

Launch has been very smooth indeed, the follow-up has been less than stellar. Lack of precise communication on gamebreaking and near-gamebreaking issues that afflict thousands of paying customers is not acceptable.

BIOWARE DOES NOT CARE.

If they did they would be giving us some kind of idea about what is going on with this. But they have given us nothing. They are trying to sweep it under the rug.

Mark my words...

This is going to take a very long time for them to fix, if ever it is fixed at all.

Now now, I think BioWare does care, but they might be struggling. Perhaps they won't give us a date, because they fear they won'tbe able to stick with it, hence getting more hate? Anyhow, I'd like an approximate date, say: "Couple of days, a week, 2 weeks, 1 month" that sort of stuff.

As an aside, is this a bug? Half of the luxury gifts I passed onto Kira yielded zero points even though she said "Now that's what I call a gift." The other half ranges from 19 to 24 points, even blues.

Thinking of dumping her altogether and start the process of gearing my other companions. She's one broken ****.

If they cared they would tell us that it is either something they hope to fix soon, or something that will be like this for a long time. People want to know if they should re-roll or hang tight.

Personally I think it will take a very very long time before this is resolved. They have BHs who cant even complete their class quest. Do you think a romance side quest that has been broken since beta is going to be fixed anytime real soon? I don't.

There are some of us that consider this bug a big deal. IF Bioware cared about us they would have a Dev posting every so often about this issue. Go to the BH boards and see how badly they are screwed.

BTW; Have you seen the latest patch notes, lol. See all those fixes they got lined up! lol

Well demanding that it should have been fixed in beta was not my intent. Too lazy to go back to my old post but I can see how my words can lead to that conclusion. Again though, I am primarily mad on lack of communication between BioWare and players. I for example could have rerolled but chose not to in hopes that BioWare would implement a bug fix after reading the word "days" opposed to weeks.

I do agree it is one of the best MMOs I have ever played and I will still recommend it to other players but a very important part of the JK story that I paid to experience is missing and past experiences of BioWare/EA support for me anyway was not good.

Just to make sure, I created my jedi knight character the first day of early access. But I haven't got to the quest yet, can someone else confirm who created their JK before the patch and did the dark side flirt after the patch that doing the dark side flirt isn't bugging anymore? I would really appreciate if someone who tested this could tell me.

don't mean to be rude but this is like the 20th time this has been asked and it's been answered just as many times

yes, you'll be fine. Sorry if that sounded snarky, but bioware also just spoiled the main story for me by doing a flashpoint when they assumed i got to a certain point. With this glitch on top of it i'm in a bit of a...mood
