Problem with Group Finder Daily reward

So did group finder twice today after update and did not receive the daily 30 comms for completing the flashpoints. I decided to look at my tactical flashpoint options and noticed that Legacy of the Rakata is not highlighted. Now I can't select it so I thought go to the area were that one starts. The droid then has no marker above it and you can't talk with him. Due to this the daily reward doesn't get rewarded along with conquest points

I've seen players in fleet chat talk about it, so yes, it may have gotten broken with today's patch.
I did run a Tactial Flashpoint earlier via group finder (and yes, I made sure that ALL flashpoints were checked) and when I open group finder now, it still shows "Daily Reward available" even though I should be locked out of the reward until tomorrow. I didn't really pay attention whether or not I got the 30 Basic Comms (I'm over the limit anyway) but I may not have gotten them either.

Can confirm that the Legacy of the Rakata tactical flashpoint is greyed out in the Group Finder but will need to do some more testing.

Alright, I can confirm that the Legacy of the Rakata flashpoint is completely bugged at the moment and would like to request that this bug report gets immediately escalated to QA.

As of patch 3.1.1, it is no longer possible for Republic level 60 players to enter the Legacy of the Rakata flashpoint manually on any mode (tactical or HM). In addition, it is no longer possible for them to run the tactical version of Legacy of the Rakata via Group Finder (they can still queue for the hard version). It also is not possible for them to receive the daily reward for running tactical FPs via Group Finder (30 Basic Comms)

At level 60, the Republic questgiver droid RO-P6 will no longer start a cutscene to grant you the flashpoint quest. When you talk to him, he says "Shuttle = ready // You + Theron Shan meet on Rakata Prime", even though I have no quest for this flashpoint in my quest log. In addition, he does not have a quest symbol above his head. Therefore, it is no longer possible to start the tactical and HM flashpoint by talking to the droid.
Note how I cannot talk to RO-P6 and the phase door is orange, indicating I cannot enter the flashpoint. My guess is that the conversation with RO-P6 got messed up or one of the phase quests got bugged.

In addition, the option to queue for the tactical version of Legacy of the Rakata via Group Finder is greyed out.
Even though the UI indicates you are eligible for the daily reward, this appears to be a display bug. The server appears to think that the Rakata flashpoint is a valid option and since you did not queue for it, you won't receive the 30 Basic Comm rewards.

Of all the bugs introduced with today's patch, this seems to be the most severe one and I hope it will be fixed soon. I guess a fix can wait for a few weeks since a workaround exists for this bug (see below) and it only affects Republic players at level 60. Players who are doing the Forged Alliances / SoR introduction story are often not yet level 60 and will still be able to finish the FA quest and continue onward with the Rishi storyline.

To clarify, this bug appears to only affect Republic characters at level 60, i.e. players who can accept both the Tactical and the HM version from the droid.
Imperial characters are not affected, Republic characters below level 60 are not affected either.

I discovered a workaround so that level 60 Republic players can still run the tactical version of Legacy of the Rakata via Group Finder. Since players below level 60 can queue for it, you just need to get in group with a player between levels 55 and 59. That players needs to have lead and queue you for group finder.
However, it only makes sense if you do this as a premade group since there won't be too many people queueing for Rakata while this bug exists.

In any case, at least with this workaround level 60 players can continue running the tactical version until this bug gets fixed.

Since I had the same problem with a republic character, I am confirming that this submit bug report is very accurate and the behavior is also well described. Same result as submitter, i.e,, no daily bonus comms and no conquests points awarded.

Well, unfortunately the forums were down for a few hours and the community team is probably finished for the day now, so I am going to PM Tait about this to make sure this gets noticed soon.
Also, I sent this in as an in-game bug report but by the time it gets looked at, QA probably already knows about it.

Blimey - pleased I completed my weekly on Tuesday (always get the tactical one out of the way as quick as possible, what with needing to run 3 and there only being 2 FP's that actually count).
But a bug.....after a patch? Get outta town!
A bug - only on the republic side? Get outta the country as well!
