Nope. Not working for the Head option here as well.

I would love to know why a QA person would not have it in the test case to make sure all the slots work when matching to chest piece? Or why all the people who played on the PTS didn't catch this.

Nice to see a thread on this. I noticed it too I thought it was just me or the helmets I was using. I usually hide my helmet so I'm okay for now but sometimes I like to enable it to have that "trooper" look. Hope they fix it soon.

using the new customisation tool i get the option of having my armour black or black...

I've made my tree and have messed around with a few bits and bobs but i'm honestly left with the overbearing feeling of.."this is half arsed"..the vid's and interviews at the start claimed group finder's , new crafting recipies customisation etc and it all seems to have just falled away..and whilst im sure we'll get them later this is not what all the people who were coming back believing 1.2 would be the saviour of the game will be expecting..
which could damn the game further ....

even the legacy tree unlocks seem ..well rubbish...the costs in credits whilst negligable for end game seem ridiculous...and you seem to get nothing for your legacy level save the ability to pay the next level of costs.

As I said Its early days but im honestly concerned that its going to cost moreplayers who were quite frankly expecting more from the miracle patch ...

If people aren't finding what they expect when they return it's because they, much like yourself, had unreasonable expectations. The way the "Match To Chest" color customization worked has been known, literally, for months.

The features in this patch have been nailed down (with the obvious exception of one) for weeks. The only thing that was removed was the ranked warzones.

If people come back expecting things that were never promised...

Well then, that wouldn't be anything unusual would it because half of the geniuses posting on these boards have no idea what they are posting about in the first place and are complaining about features that were never promised or issues that were resolved months ago.

Same issue for me. Belt/glove/boots/pants match up, no luck on headpiece. Nothing changes regardless of helmet type used or chest type used.

How this wasn't noticed during their after-patch testing is beyond me.

My trooper has a rust/gold chestpiece, all the other parts now match except he still has a white helmet with yellow stripe.

Wish we could color match companions armour, My Corso's armour has a diferent color for each piece right now.

It's easy to imagine how this got missed.

Most of the heavy testing was done on copied characters with gear that was mostly Rakata (ie. already matched.)

The people that rolled new characters and started armoring their characters from scratch stopped around level 10 (the level that you get the title at) and never saw their character with a helm at all.

This left only those who went all the way to chapter 3 (to get the other title) to actually test the matching system thoroughly and I'm betting there just weren't that many testers in that level range.

Just a guess as to how a bug like this might have been missed, if it's a bug at all.

iirc, in the video they selected a color from a palette for the chest piece.
