The sky would fall if they gave compensation. This may get fixed by Tuesday. IMHO it won't. It'll be a week or two before they get around to it because Bioware is doing everything it can to ensure a quality experience to its customers.

Our hope is for this to be resolved for next week's maintenance, but we can't give a definitive time. Thank you for your patience in this.

In the meantime, the current workaround is a preventative measure: In order to prevent this issue, players must look at every conversation option with Darth Tomen and always pick the one that shows they will get light side points in order to ensure mission progress.
The Known Issues thread has been updated in the Customer Service forums.
I really don't think you understand our frustrations. You've poured 100+ hours into playing your character the way you wanted (it's the whole reason for the light/dark side options in the game!) and suddenly you're at the ultimate point in the story, where your decision will single handedly shape the future of a huge part of the galaxy and then suddenly you have to pick a particular choice which is the antithesis of your character just to avoid getting locked out of almost all the meaningful end game content.

I usually don't care about MMO stories, but SWTOR has done it so well that I do actually care. I played my BH from 1 to 50 as a dark side evil bas**** and having to make that ending decision was painful. I'm still VERY thankful I read the forums first and someone mentioned their light sided BH friend didn't bug out and they thought it was tied to the light side choices, so I did the same and didn't get bugged out. I can feel for all the other BHs though, especially the ones who first discovered the bug and warned those of us quite not there yet about it.

I think instead of patronizing us and saying you understand our frustrations, a much better thing to say is "Our dev team will add a way for BH to reset the story back before the bug so they can complete the story how how they want to. And here's 60 daily commendations for having to wait so long for us to fix it."

Anyways, keep up the good plotline work! But hire a better (and darker-sided) QA staff!

yeah by not fixing something that has been an issue for a month in beta that they couldnt take the time to look at and fix.. instead they worry about jedi flirting and baby names in credits... sure shows the priority there. SI's are having the same issue as us and we're all not happy about it.. And by not giving us any kind of compensation just gimps us people that want to gear up to do operations.

So while all of our guildies/friends are doing operations with the proper gear they got from doing dailies we'll be stuck playing catch up for a mistake that was from what i heard constantly reported in beta and was ignored and never fixed... So if thats "ensuring a quality experience to its customers" we must all be in some other realm then you because the situation now doesn't show they care about quality too much..

You do realize that there are multiple different development teams for different aspects of the game, right? Each with their own workload. As a project manager, you can't tell the Animations dept to stop and fix a mission reward bug. That kind of mismanagement only leads to a heavily fragmented final product.

I'm sure most of these people do more work in a single day than most of you do in an entire week. They're not just sitting around a water cooler laughing about how angry you are over these things.

I understand that people are aggravated, but my initial point was against the "I CANT PLAY MY CHARACTER" whining going on. Believe me, I wish I could access the content as well. I don't like that I'm being left behind, but I'm making the most of it.

If you want to ***** and moan at this point, you can easily wait til Tuesday when they have tentative plans to have this fixed. If its not fixed then, start another 200 page thread. But the level of entitlement childishness in this thread is palpable.

You should work at EA. You sound like you'd fit right into their garbage product development.

Blizzard waits until February to release D3 because they care about their products.

Just adding to the, "omg, I can't get to Ilum," posts.

I was a bit confused trying to work out how to get there, so hit google and found this problem. Got a bit annoyed, especially with people saying this has been a known issue for ages.

However, there's still plenty to do. Right now, my plans are:

- Find the remaining datacrons.
- Run some flashpoints.
- Do some more PvP.

Missing out on the dailies on Ilum is a pain for sure, especially with guildies linking various items in guild chat that they got from the vendors there, but it's not a game killer.

Not at all. We should wait a month to access content we paid for (in my case 150).

5th day I have not been able to go to Ilum and do the dailies thats almost a piece of gear, they need to just give us the quest in our quest log till they can fix this , this is really unacceptable.

I think you misunderstand a project managers role if you believe they cannot tell animation etc to stop working on one thing and move onto another. It is part of their job to prioritise tasks and assign them out to the relevant department. Once they register a fix their internal test team verify the fix and move it into a live environment (in this case a PTS).

I dont think for one minute anyone considers development are sitting around doing nothing, they simply are not assigning the highest priority tasks in the correct manner, at least that is how it is perceived by the community (which in MMO's will often dictate priority to the development team).

Look every single player who plays a BH has every right to be annoyed that a bug such as this (that was reported in September) has not been fixed. The wording of the latest patch notes did nothing but fan the flames of this annoyance.
