1. Plant a vague "We are looking into this issue" reply on the forum and sticky it.

2. Fool the BDF into thinking the future is bright.

3. Unsticky the biggest and most well supported thread on the forums thus far.

4. Cross your fingers and pray to the gods that you have done enough to worm another months subs out of the masses to recoup some of the layout on this certain financial disaster.
Are you serious? The Bioware war? Care to elaborate on how they got to be this way and with what other games?

As annoying as the delay can be, it's not going to break this game.

It will. It breaks all competitive end game PvE/PvP.

It will for hardcore gamers, especially PvPers who want to perform with perfect timing in tight situations.

They still haven't fixed this issue yet? Awful.

It will break the game. You have no idea how annoying it is for me to play on my Jedi Knight with the double animation, unresponsive Riposte and other abilities. It's awful, awful, awful. I can stand it ONLY because I think it will get fixed. If all hope is lost I'll probably either ditch the character or just slowly stop playing the game.

It makes Juggernaut tanking even more of a pain than it already is. Don't get me started on PvP.

Don't even think about using Force Push tactically (Pushing someone off a ledge or into the acid in Huttball) during/after a long animation skill.

i dont think to sub at this time .... there is no future on competitive gaming here ATM...

Maybe if they manage to fix it i will return ...

but i fear the fact that behind BW there is the EA ...and WAR have still gamebreaking bugs from beta.

I just hope that someone at BW stand up and say : "what we are doing!!"

I have played WoW, DAoC, Rift and Aion, yet I have never experienced this kind of issue.
This is a big one for me too. It's happening a lot to me on my Jugg alt with retaliation, and happens on my assassin from time to time with assassinate in particular.
