Hey folks,

The team is looking into abilities not lightning up as intended. I will pass on more info as I have it and thank you for your reports.

it's getting worse. right now i was hitting target dummy on my operative and lacerete isn't lighting up even when i have tactical advantage in time. It starts to light up only in 1-2 seconds after iam actually get possibility of using it....sometimes if shows i can use some ability but in reality i CAN'T use it due to lack of tactical advantage points..

I made this thread with a lot more details before I saw this one : http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=971989

It goes beyond the abilities being grayed out. There is also a 2 second delay before they activate.

Can we also lose the “new” visual count timer on jugg/guardian force leap as it has no charges now to worry about.
It’s very distracting and hard to see when force leap will be back up because I’m partially colour blind.
A number count down would be better. Like we can do for the whole task bar, (which I hate and don’t use), but you could just put it on the one ability that has charges instead of that grayed swirling timer I can’t see (im sure I’m not the only one).
And if I had to guess, I would say it’s a root problem behind the grayed ability problems.

Yep, completely broken. Imagine if you are a new player or trying to play a new class. I can see people uninstalling if it’s not fixed fast and 6.0.2 will be too long to fix. In reality, I would say 48 hours will be too long for a lot of people. I really hope they are working through the weekend or they are going to lose a bunch of players who don’t know any better.

Are you also getting activation lag of about 1-2 seconds, even when they activate?

I can use most skills even when greyed out, but force charge is one that is not ready to be used even when the cd is done it seems.

Also there is a delay in updates for the distance to target. That only updates every couple of seconds, which is also annoying. All in all it's a really annoying bug and hope it gets resolved soon.

With the last patch, quite unpleasant errors appeared. Many abilities become available only after 2-3 seconds after their "rollback". The ability panel itself also works with errors.

Besides the delay, I agree that the gray swirly thing is not an improvement. I went back and checked and I have 0.1 seconds on my cooldown "text" selected, but the swirly thing doesn't really tell me if I have time for another ability before the swirly one has cooled down. Please give me the text back.

Um can we get some kind of update on this? Or are we seriously just gonna have to wait until 6.0.2 to get this fixed? Makes the game almost unplayable.
