We've had this problem SINCE EARLY BETA. It was THE #1 issue (easily) that everyone wanted taken care off FIRST.

It still plagues our game play TO THIS DAY and it's unacceptable that this wasn't fixed IN BETA.

Bioware still has a TON to learn about what needs to be put at the top of list. PRIORITIZE. This is ridiculous and I'm beyond pissed that we still have to deal with this a month after the game has been released, and likely much much longer.

SHAME ON YOU BIOWARE.
This is pretty true actually. Suddenly the value of Georg's words have plummeted since he does indeed act like it's something they were caught off guard with.

Great news. This game has some amazing elements (story, art direction, etc.), and its nice to know you are working on the not so nice elements. With this fix, and maybe a few others, the pvp in this game will be awesome and as exciting as I know it can be.

Thanks for the update

First good post of 2012.

We don't care about game of the year awards or whatever operation you're launching until these problems are fixed.
I have a bad feeling about this.

Do you know how much code there is to go through?

Much of Beta is spent making sure the leveling experience works, making sure the systems are put into place and making sure the launch is relatively smooth

In MMOs, its launch now fix later. otherwise you keep falling more and more behind your competitors.

They probably have been working on it since Beta but only since launch after the systems were put into the game and working did they have the resources to fully pursue the issue.

They kept their whole Team Post Launch. They did this to fix things quickly. They know the game isn't perfect and they are trying to get it done. Do you really think that a team that has spent 5 years working on something doesn't care about it and doesn't want to see it successful or calls home on it?

No, when you spend 5 years on something and you eat breathe and sleep it, you invest time into and it becomes part of you. I know, I'm a musician with a Degree in Music. My Music is part of me. This game is part of them. WoW is part of the Blizzard Developers.

These guys want to see it succeed and they are trying, but I guess you've never invested yourself into a large work of something to be truly proud of. Everything is probably handed to you in life and you feel entitled to having everything perfect on day 1

yeah I'm mad Bro.

The Trooper's mortar volley is an animation issue not related to the technical fixes mentioned in this thread. It is however being worked on (take this as a confirmation that we are not satisfied with how the ability reacts to player input and that we intend to fix it).

Please understand if I'm not going to discuss more individual ability concerns in this thread to avoid derailing the topic at this point.

Since I see some demaind for it, I will see if I can get you guys an update on individual ability animation concerns (both balance and gameplay) in the future. You should see a number of non animation concerns with faction ability fixed in an upcoming patch on PTS.

This is great, if SW:TOR keeps up this player to community relation i might just stick to SW:TOR from here on out

Not one BioWare reply yet. Please REVERT The changes. Thank you.
We've seen your feedback on the change and the team is working on improvements to ability cooldown readability as we speak.
