Others take it as some sort of personal insult to their mothers and throw a hissy fit.
And some freak out completely and actually spend money on changing their characters skin with the appearance kiosk, which most likely means they will have to change it again once the bug is fixed (since it seems to be two skintones that have been accidentally switched)
Yeah. Spend real money to get the look you want, have to spend real money (for some) to unlock the race because it's not always on GTN at a price you can afford with in game creds...always best to just say "Oh well. Things happen."

If people just reported the bug calmly, do you think it would get priority? You know, like all those other bugs that have been reported and still not fixed on items people have paid real money for?

I'm still not happy that my Smugglers outfit got changed from Black to Grey in a patch, but since I didn't pay real money for it, I'm sure it's more of a "You're out of luck." area
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Turning all of our Cathar characters clown-white is a disaster and it needs to be fixed ASAP, please. I don't want to have to wait 2-4 weeks for this to be resolved and I would appreciate it if the development team could schedule in a quick 1 hour downtime to fix this right away tomorrow morning or even the day after. Please do not make us wait weeks for this fix.
I agree, if all the Black humans suddenly turned White this would be fixed by tomorrow morning.

It is completely unacceptable and if they let it sit until the next update, they are being completely irresponsible.

Could this not be fixed via a hotfix of some sort instead of waiting for the next full patch?

Kinda immersion breaking since i only started leveling my cathar a week ago, and so have a lot of story cutscenes ahead of me over the next couple of weeks.

[EDIT]: Just noticed now that on my trooper Aric Jorgan appears to be suffering from this to, as the lower half of his face and neck are now far paler then they used to be..

Okay so it isn't just my cathar that has gone pale. Least Bioware likes to keep things interesting :P

No. It's a bug. They'll fix it in an upcoming patch.

Why would you think you would have to pay money to fix it? Oh right, the fourth poster went off half-cocked. Gotcha.

Can we get any kind of comment as to whether Aric Jorgan's change of appearance is connected to this?

I mean, I feel like some of it is related to the fur colour, but there's some general weirdness with his new face that's present on custom faces of different colours as well.
