Thanks everyone.

Just to be sure... One Rank 5 purple gift costs 960 credits and you can sell it back for the same amount. Is it OK to buy them? I want my new friends Raina and Hexid to love me and buff some folks to make my augments but if it's not OK, I'll sell back my gifts and do this the long way...

One more addition to the list. Shortly after launching 5.6 an exploit was brought to our attention. It allowed players to buy companion gifts for free and then sell them back to the vendor for credits. Allowing them to gain a large quantity of credits very quickly. We are investigating this exploit and will be taking appropriate action against individuals who abused it.

Eric! Could you comment on the issue regarding the eye colours and general new eye designs we got with 5.6? As can be seen on the forums it is a subject of significant debate, with some people like me loving the new change while others absolutely hate it. Do you know a bit more on what will be done with the new eye designs? Please don't revert to the old ones, if anything, give us a toggle in Graphics settings where we can choose what eye design we want to see ingame.

Let CS know about it in-game or through a phone call. They can access your ledger and what you bought and whether you collected the items or not. They will either refund the coins or grant the items. The game data will show what happened to you on their end. Always provide as much information as possible.

Other than the bugged ones. I don't see any difference between the Rep fleet gifts and Imp fleet gifts prices.
Direct action is not always the best way. It is a far greater victory to make another see through your eyes than to close theirs forever. What greater weapon is there than to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them?

To be fair= you guys do spoil us a lot and I didn't see or understand the wrong doing. In all my years of mmorpging, ive never actually encountered a bug considering developers are almost, in my experience, on top of things before releasing patches to the public.

I simply thought this was a limited "catch your new companion up" thing

I don't wish to be banned or punished harshly for my naivety - ive been playing for a few years and have invested heavily (time and finances) into this game and my legacy- and I want to come forward instead of pretending I didn't do anything. Knowing now that this was a immersion breaking bug I realize that I cheated when that was never my intention.

please if possible- email me so we can communicate a way to fix this.
I think that if you bought them but did NOT sell them back at an enormous profit, you are likely okay. But I would send a message to Keith and/or Eric (or both) so long as it isn't obvious that you took advantage of this exploit as a way to make a huge pile of credits, and I'm sure they will make that part of their consideration.
Do not correct a fool or he will hate you; correct a wise man, and he will appreciate you.

If you get the KDY bug exiting the instance and resetting it will allow you to progress. I know because we ran into this yesterday or the day before and resetting worked.

Eric, one of my guildies is in a panic because she bought 10 gifts when the price was zero. She added them to her stack and she doesn't know which of the 24 are part of the 10 that she bought for zero. She consumed some of them giving them to her companion. Should she destroy the whole stack? She says she did not sell them back to the vendor for credits.

We have some known issues for Game Update 5.6 that you should be aware of:
  • If you disintegrate numerous items in your Command Stash, and then you do this process again without closing the interface, the bar which displays how far you progress will display an incorrect value. You are still getting the proper CXP, but what is displayed will be incorrect. You can workaround this by closing and reopening the Command Stash after you do a disintegration.
  • In the Kuat Drive Yards Flashpoint do not press spacebar or escape while you are in the cutscene which transitions you across the ships (it is the second cutscene). If you do, it is likely that the entire group will be transported back to the first ship and unable to progress. As long as you do not hit spacebar or escape, this should transition you correctly to the second ship.
    • If you end up in the bugged state, you will need to completely quit the group and queue again through group finder.
    • As a precautionary measure, we have removed the ability for you to queue for KDY directly. However, you can still get it randomly.
  • If you had Unassembled Components prior to 5.6, the currency tab will show that you have 0 Unassembled Components. We didnít take them away, they are in your inventory. It is a bug that they are still displaying in the currency tab at all and will be removed in the future. If your inventory was full, check your mailbox.
  • The vendor Tahoota on the Imperial Fleet is selling various companion gifts that do not list a purchase price (but they do have one). When purchased, they can be bought for cheaper than is intended and will be addressed in a future update.

Thanks everyone.

Not Eric, but judging by past responses to minor exploits, it shouldn't be anything to worry about - they'll probably be looking for the sellback instead, and the consequences in any case would likely amount to taking away the credits made (none in that case)
What we must fight for is to safeguard the existence of the Sith race and the Sith people, the glory of our children and the purity of our blood, the freedom and independence of the Empire, so that we may fulfill the mission allotted us by the Force itself. Everything must be examined from this point of view and used or rejected according to its utility.
