Hi, sorry to say but the patch 5.4 fix to the guild panel reloading bug has introduced some new bugs that is making admin all but impossible. I am seriously sorry to report these problems as I had great hopes when I saw you had put some time into helping the guilds but you really need to handle these as I can see lots of people being accidentally set as officers which could lead to some interesting guild dramas...

Bug #1 - This one has been fixed with patch 5.7

Let's say I have 5 people in my guild:

  1. Adam
  2. Brian
  3. Camy
  4. Donna
  5. Eric

If I left click on Brian so his row is highlighted and then right click and choose Guild->Set Member Note it works as expected. Now if I right click on Donna her row becomes highlighted but when I choose Guild->Set Member Note I see Brians member note. This is the same for officer note, Set Rank and Set Primary. Basically you end up setting things for the wrong characters. This also applies when you right click and try to /w somebody from guild panel, it puts the wrong name in the chat.

Bug #2

Similar to the above but this involves shift-key multiple character select. If I left click on Adam, edit his member note all is good. Now I want to change the rank for Brian, Camy and Donna so I left click on Brian, hold the shift key down and click on Donna. I see just those 3 names highlighted as I would expect. The problem is when I right click and Set Rank it changes Adam as well even though he is no longer highlighted.

Bug #3

Shift select is still selecting everybody from the top of the guild panel to the current cursor position when any of the actions that used to make it reload occur.

Bug #4

Things that used to make the guild panel reload are still making it steal text chat focus so you fire off lots of hotkeys when trying to type in chat with guild panel open.

Bug #5

The right click whisper option from the guild panel does not work with names that have foreign characters in them. For example if I right click "Dhrör" in the guild panel and choose Whisper then in chat I see "/whisper Dhr▪r:" when I should see "/whisper Dhrör:". In-game the foreign characters are replaced with blocks and the whisper does not work. This problem is not present if you right click and whisper from the Friends/Who panels.

I've instructed my guild officers not to touch guild roster notes until further notice. Thank you for this.

You mean a major content patch for this game took something that was already broken and broke it more? I am totally surprised by this. I certainly couldn't have expected it from the fact every single major patch for the last two years has done the exact same thing.

I didn't mean this as a "**** Bioware" post, I just wanted to draw their attention to some big issues that are bound to cause a lot of problems across servers in multiple guilds.

It was nice to see they tried to help their guilds, even if it didn't work out as planned

That being said; please please fix this quickly, I've had to instruct my officers to stop setting ranks/notes/stars which I know will upset a lot of my guild members!

Im wondering if anyone from the Yellow Team will say anything about it tommorow... Like really BW, its really reeally anoying..

Tab resetting when ppl login or logoff we all get used to it after the two years or so.. But this is kinda.. New stuff and it practically makes you more and more tilted every time you try to sort out the mess in big guilds..

Cmon.. Keith or Eric.. Say something..
