Oh my ... I did it two times today as well and got stuck in the room with the door that wont open. Bummer. Guess this one gets removed from my mission list.

Can we now dispense with the fiction that BW has internal testers to quality check their patches?

But on the bright side, now we can't tank Foreman crusher on the pilars...because, you know, everyone's been asking for that... With all the bugs and glitches working against us, can't we just have one that actually makes the game unfair in our favor?

Same thing here, I tried Regular mode on group finder twice today and and got stuck both times, both groups had people that said they had been stuck there several times as well.

I tried zoning out the back in, it won't let me back just zoning back to where I entered on Hoth. I went to fleet and tried to enter from there, it just put me back on Hoth again.

I asked on fleet after, several people said they had been stuck on both Hard Mode and Reg. One person said they had just finished it by not skipping the conversations, but I think there might have been trolling.

This is a game breaker bug / content blocker so I would imagine it will be fixed some time in the next couple of days.

I've had this problem yesterday. Ran it on hard mode, we did kill the Droid boss outside. After the conversation with Kilran, both doors remained closed.
Two of my guildies have also told me they had the exact same problem yesterday.

Um.. not sure how your gaming day went, but mine went something like this...

Yesterday, myself and a few guildmates queued for the groupfinder daily (random hard mode). We were pretty happy to get Taral V, as it's one we can get through pretty quickly (yes, we usually kill the bosses).

After killing the droid, we end up trapped in the room with the console.

We tried everything we could to get past it, but ended up abandoning the mission, resetting phases, and re-queuing for the groupfinder.

Guess what...

We got Taral V again..
We tried it again, assuming it was just a temporary glitch...

Nope, still broke after the second try (this time we skipped the droid)...

So we queue again..
We get Taral V again....

FIVE FRICKIN' TIMES IN A ROW!!

We finally just gave up and logged off for the night...

If that isn't game breaking, I don't know what is. It certainly broke my enthusiasm to play the game last night.. and isn't that why we play? to have fun? Last night was sooo not fun...

I understand that bugs happen. I've been playing MMO's a long time and have suffered through some nightmares when it comes to dealing with bugs... They are... forgiveable to a degree..

The problem is, they are not letting players know about this, and just leaving them to flounder through it not knowing if the problem is something they did, or a temporary bug, or whatever..

Maybe, if there was something preventing you from queuing for this (and still get your daily/weekly), or at least letting players know via the patcher message, it might not be so bad.

Maybe having a link to the "Known Issues" right on the patcher screen might help... (as long as it gets updated with 'we are currently investigating' stuff).

oh let see... my day went a little something like this.
  • Log in and que up. T5 ques and team gets past droid boss for it to bug. Team seperates
  • Start working on dailys and que up again.
  • Que pops and its T5 again. Team splits right away.
  • Continue working on dailys and que up again.
  • Que pops and its T5 again. Team splits right away.
  • Finish dailys while queing again
  • Que pops and its T5 again. Team decides to go past droid and bugs. Team separates.

Jump on different toon to start working dailys on him while queing
  • Que pops for Kaon

No, its not a game breaker. The game does not revolve around that 1 single flashpoint. RNG was against you with the continuous rolls of T5. It happens to all of us. Some of us just find something else to do.

Do you want to know what is game breaking? How about not being able click on multiple consoles to go into another area because they don't show up being clickable. How about when you reset the GUI, nothing comes back to your screen except for the environment... no icons, no characters, nothing. How about when you move around, the time it takes from you doing something finally triggers about 2-3 seconds after you actually do the action? Yes, all of these situations I listed did happen to me at one time or another.

Yes, the game is supposed to be fun but when you solely rely on only doing 1 thing instead of having multiple things to do, then you bring it upon yourself to have the game not be any fun anymore when that 1 thing does not work as intended.

I'm not going to argue over what "game breaking" means, but it's certainly super annoying, especially for new players like me who only have 1 toon and T5 is the only Flashpoint worthwhile in my level range. I think it's definitely something that they should hotfix ASAP instead of waiting a week.

A week in MMO leveling time might as well be a century lol.
