Hello Pistols,

We would like to investigate the phenomena that you're reporting here.

I want to reiterate for everyone that when you're reporting issues, we really need you to please be detailed and provide more than just what happened, please. For anyone who has experienced a Warzone that begins with 7 players on a team, and then the spot is never backfilled (which is what I am taking this report to exclusively mean), please provide the following information:

1. Warzone name
2. Faction (Was the other Faction the same or opposite?)
3. Approximately what time this occurred
4. Any other relevant details (for example, the match ended early because of 6 scores in Huttball)

Thanks for your reports!

1. Any/and all WZ types.

2. Sith Faction (altho have seen multiple peeps reporting same for Republic).

3. Time: Last night, 5:30PM to roughly 8PM PST, Bastion server.

4. The WZ starts with 7...there is no 8th...when a person leaves the WZ and gives us 6 people only...the 7th spot is backfilled as normal...but not the 8th spot. I have a screenshot from a Voidstar last night where 15 total players played the entire game...8 for the Republic...and 7 for Imperial.

Amber this is an older bug from awhile ago, I know they've made some more adjustments to backfill of late, but this is indeed an issue. There is no way to reproduce it, other than just queue'ing up and checking. Essentially, the game is reading 8 players accepted the WZ, when in fact there is only 7. /shrug

Did you try resetting your UI via CTRL UU? Sometimes, I see only 7 people in a warzone. However, if I do a manual head count there's actually 8 on my team. Sometimes CTRL UU will fix it and the 8th will show up in the ops frame. Sometime it will not but obviously I see the missing person running around in the WZ and know we have an 8th.

It's easy to spot an 8th at the beginning of a WZ when they're not grouped.

While I have seen this a few times, this is simply a seperate issue.

I can confirm this bug, and it's really annoying. Dear god Bioware not AGAIN. Why do you keep reintroducing the same freaking bugs? It's getting rediculous.

This isn't the first place I posted about this issue (don't remember which forum thread it was). But, this is NOT a faction issue. I have played Huttball on the Imperial side with 6 players with the 7th and 8th spot never filled. The bizarre part is that when one of the players would quit the warzone, it would replace their spot! Now, a few hours later (all of this was on Tuesday but has persistently occurred since), I was in a Hypergate against my pub side guild and we were in mumble together. They started their match with only 7 people where the same exact issue occured. The eighth spot was never filled, but if someone quit the warzone they would be nearly instantly replaced. The next time it happens, I will promptly post here with all the relevant information. Thank you Devs for taking a moment to respond because I know many PVPers are frustrated. Lets just start playing again

This happened to us 2 nights ago on the Jedi Covenant Server on the Republic side. We would backfill the 7th but never the 8th spot. Had 3 warzones in a row w/ this problem and we actually won one of them. But now I have to wonder whether the other side was having the same issue.
