This has been an issue since 1.2 yet no fix, but hey its not important right, got ya.
Hey look, a straw man!

Who's saying that this particular bug is less important than SGRA content?

I've never experienced the bug myself and can't really talk about it tbh.

I don't quite believe there's a choice between working on SGRA and fixing this bug either, considering they probably have a separate team for bug fixes. If this bug hasn't been fixed, it's likely due to other bugs being prioritized over it and not SGRA content.

So they claim to be against any and all romance content, but they post in support for future OGR content.
Right.
Way to take a stand there. Woo hoo.
Mindboggling, isn't it?

The world is not black and white, bugs fixed or unfixed. MMO's are a journey, not a destination.

Also, how is simply getting and answer to the question of whether SGR's are in the game or not taking away dev time from fixing things? That's all we want, a simple answer to a simple question. Its all the detractors that come in and try to cloud the issue. You've said you don't want this in the game. Fine, thank you, move along now. You have nothing more to add.

^.^
Like DR said, BW is damned if they do, damned if they don't.

I think adding SGR will have TOR gain as many players as they lose, and likely why it's on the low priority list.

I'd like more comments from the devs, but I understand why they havent. So they come out and make a comment about SGR, that will have people saying other things like "You gave answers to this, why not give answers to this bug, this content, this and this and this."

I havent experienced it either, but I know quite a few people who have. If it was just BT I'd say that's why it's likely low on the priority list. But I know a few who say it's all FPs.

Since it doesn't seem to happen to everyone, could be why it's a difficult bug to figure out.

Second, they feel like you are listening to them, thus improving the company image with the player base.
They don't really need to look at this thread. They analyze their games and usage of content, as any profit oriented company would do. They have said before that the numbers of SGR content usage are higher than some people would imagine. That's just random info though.

Just for the sake of making things even, SGR are in order. Maybe the timeframe is simply not clear yet. Might be one reason why they haven't mentioned anything with regards to Makeb.

Yeah, I'd advise just adding them to your "Ignore" list and move on.

I've started doing that and it's much better

Bioware really can't keep silent forever.
I do still think we'll get something with the expansion and hopefully it will hit the PTS soon after the new year (so we can get confirmation on what has been added). I imagine the Makeb stuff will require lengthier testing than patches so I expect it will hit the PTS well before it's release date.

Yep, I think so too.

Curious, curiouser.

BW can make good or make it worse with this one, and I hope for ther first.

Sorry. With general chat, guild chat, teaming, and the game being out for like a year now, I doesnt always occur to me it just isn't well known.

There's actually quite a lot of folks in this thread who have never been able to advance far enough into the game to really experience much of anything yet. Most of my characters are frozen around the level 12-15 range because I'm waiting on them to finish adding in all the base line content so I can play the game.
