Great, so ui fix will come out next month? Oh wow, my payment for this month just went down the toilet since i can't play with this strobe nonsense.
A rocket launcher gives me all the spiritual peace I need.

For a sentinel, this is bad, horribly bad. I just did my first WZ since patch and paid special attention to the bars - there were times when the ability was definitely available and up, and it was black on the bar. So it's unintuitive and also broken.

It's so bad, even though I have a full night of freedom from kids/work, I'm turning off the game and going to do something else.

This isn't complicated. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel.

Look at other games that haven't mucked this up, and copy them.

Considering you're prepared to run a hotfix and maintenance when world pvpers in one zone aren't getting kill credit, I hope you're taking an issue that's actually making the game unplayable for some of us more seriously & have a similar timeframe for repairs in mind.

Oh, and you shut the poll before I could vote. "It's terrible" btw.

Bioware's priorities:

A tiny % of players aren't getting full credit for Ilum kills.
ZOMG!!! Panic!!! Bring down the servers immediately and deploy an emergency fix!!!!

A significant chunk of players cannot play without getting a migrane, nausea, and/or vomiting.
Yawn. We'll fix it whenever. No big deal.

Thanks for the answer stephen, but is this really all you can tell us after 48 Hours? Can you please be a little more specific?

Will you change the animation, so that GCD and CD are treated different again? It's nearly game breaking for Rage / Focus etc classes to be unable to tell what abilities will be available when GCD finishes.

Will you change the animation, so people aren't suffering from a headache anymore? I'm personally not affected by this issue, but any health problems should be a top priority.

Do we really have do wait until 1.2, or are you planning a patch before march?

Instead of outlining all the abilities that are on global cooldown try outlining the abilities that aren't on cooldown. :P
