Hi everyone,

I'm sure by now a lot of you have encountered an Error in which it is impossible to start a Flashpoint with a group I first encoutered this bug with a friend of mine when we attempted to do The Esseles and then again today when I tried to do Colicoid War Game with a group, you join a group and you all have the same quest, but some of you are at different stages of the flashpoint so you are instructed to "reset all active flashpoints" right click your portrait > Phase > Reset Active Flashpoints but then after this when you try and enter the instace, and ERROR message occurs (see link) that says "The party leader must reset the current flashpoint before a new one can be started. Right-click your portrait and select the phase option 'reset all active flashpoints.' " apparently you can get rid of this bug by adding a random person to group promoting them to leader then leaving, abandoning the quest and starting over but there doesn't seem to have been an attempt from Bioware to resolve this issue, which in my opinion is a massive blocker of a bug, if anyone else has any infomation on this issue please let me know via this thread.

Many thanks.

Noremax.

Thank you! I have this bug, sadly missed the flashpoint for today but meh... next time!




Offtopic: I made a ticket saying if they don`t fix it in the next 3 days i`m asking my bank to charge them back for selling me an incomplete game without endgame acces.... maybe if we all charge them back they will fix it and since the game will lose so many subs we can buy it much cheaper.

Yeah. Good luck with that. They didn't sell you an incomplete game. Launch games are going to have bugs. There are a billion bugs out there that they are trying to fix. They are not all going to get fixed immediately. It takes a lot of time and effort to track down bugs, fix them, test the fix, etc. Debugging is not a simple process. Relax, it will get fixed. There is a workaround, you know the workaround, use the workaround.

It is incomplete, if you buy a movie DVD with the last 10 minutes missing, don`t you ask for a refund? Same thing here... they sold us something that doesn`t work. I will give them 3 days to answer the ticket tho...

We need to stand up and refuse to eat this... if you hurt their profits they will improve, that`s what they care about so that`s what you target.

Well said if you went to Mcdonalds and and ordered then paid for a cheese burger and got it home to find it was a regular burger you'd be like hmmmm I'm going to Burger King next time... we're not really getting what we're paying for. Although that doesn't mean the game isnt good, I'm really enjoying it thus far and 98% works perfectly it's just these little set backs that make you feel disheartend as it promises in ever other sector to be a perfect game, I have patience and confidence in Bioware to come through however and these bugs will be fixed in time WoW had bugs for a long time before it was a decent build. And for all of you there is a work around Add someone to your group, promote them to leader then leave the group it will spread the bug to them so it's a little harsh but it's mad world! :P (so if a random player invites you to group) be suspicious and Whisper them first...

Happy Gaming!

And May The Force Be With You All!

For The Republic!

I encountered this error today, tried lot of things and I found the problem. Your daily flashpoint quest, you must reset that one. Reset ALL the quests involving that current flashpoints.

My group encountered this issue yesterday with Black Talon. We went and did The False Emperor and went back and were able to zone in.

Been trying with some guild mates to get into various Flashpoints all evening, tried 1 Hard mode and 2 on Ilum so far, but it gives the error you mentioned every single time. Tried adding random person to team etc and it didn't fix it at all... which means I've basically just wasted the last hour trying to access content that doesn't work.

THANK YOU! I managed to find this thread via google. It happened to me last night. The party leader transfer trick worked. I lost about an hour trying to figure it out.
I find your lack of same-gender romances... disturbing.
