I really thought this bug was fixed. I haven't run into the scamper-stuck bug in 2? years.

I would in a heartbeat.

Let's open up the way-back machine and fix the bugs that will at this point still be in the game when the game is sun-setted:

Revisit the original story content and fixing all the graphical bugs, from skewed textures, stones, lamps, trees, buildings, etc., not positioned on the ground, seams where two textures should meet on the ground not quite doing so (Axial park, great example), and a host of overlapping objects competing for the same geometrical space (rugs / columns / walls etc.).... and... here's the joke of the century...make them put companion beds in the Jedi Defender Corvette.

Then from there, they need to work their way forward through more recent content. Voice-overs, even if they must pull old recordings off the shelf for dead voice actors, any buggy PvP maps, being granted SoR at 53 but its flashpoints being in hard mode only until you hit 55, etc.

And then tie it all off by finally fixing the horde of bugs in 5.10 and whatever they did to break GSF.

I'd be happy with not a single new feature, species, item off the cartel market, nothing if I knew a truly deep dive end-to-end on bugs was forth coming. They can recycle cartel market stuff for the daily fire sale which takes practically no coding time at all (wouldn't happen every day if it did) and focus whatever skeleton crew is still manning the controls on SWTOR to make a profound effort quashing that bug list.

Technically we already pay for bug fixing. However, with the official stance that "non-critical" bugs will not be fixed, that doesn't happen and I would indeed love if they dedicated a patch to bug squishing. My Saber Marshal's hood has had the awful clipping issue since 1.2, they've never done anything about that *********** annoying billboard from strongholds/conquest being stuck on the screen, animal mounts still don't preview properly, companions still have incorrect use of tank/healer voice sets etc. I'm sure everyone can add a dozen broken things they see daily that's been around forever :\
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.

Yes there is - competence.

Or a possible lack thereof.

One of my main frustrations is long standing bugs that seem to never even be looked at. So yes I would love to see some effort put into bug fixing even at the cost of some new content. My sub fees would feel well spent if they did so.

Wait... I do... I pay a monthly subscription.

Devs, please concentrate on bugs?
That's what I was gonna say. I do. I have been. I most likely still will. They have not fixed them with the subs that have been around. Why would I think more would matter? The Republic heroic mission on Makeb, "Into the fire" has been broken for 4+ years. It was part of the conquest goals last week and could not be complete because the final boss never spawned. It's not about the number of subs. It's not about the number of loot crate sales. They just don't fix bugs.

My signature was current on Makeb... Airlocked!

We don't need a new Arena, we don't need anything new for months. Just please fix so much of the substantial stuff that's broken ever since QA went out the window during 5.x.

I think it might be reasonably safe to say that this would be many peopleís all-time favorite update.

Consider me on board with this idea.

Surely that was what the summer of PvP was for all non pvp players. Or the long periods where there was no content at all. Or the current state of the game where subscribers pay for a AAA service but get development mostly focused on the Cartel Market.

I have seen no evidence that by not adding content they have improved the state of the game. So any suggestion they should focus on bugs over content would likely be seen as a means to move the 2 of the 3 remaining devs to Anthem and see how long subscribers would go with the occasional bug fix.
