True, if only that kind of thinking were applied to bug fixing. I mean that sure seems as simple as "reskinning" something to me in order to fix. And there's been how many CM updates since that started?

Bug fixes don't make them money.

Bug Squashing and item developement are traditionally two very different teams. Also, bug squashing is a very tedious process, considering you need to ensure your possible fix has very minimal chance to make things worse elsewhere.
I am eating your canon, and pooping your immersion.

Indeed, perhaps this particular bug wouldn't have been introduced if they weren't madly rushing to add more CM items :P

Only bioware cares if you random casuals and bads are "having a blast" cuz they know they can keep milking you on the cm.

Whenever I see a post like this.......

I applaud you and your awesomesauce. Remind me to never ever group with you as my player skills simply are not worthy of you or your presence....

I just report and move on. That kind of contribution is not needed in a civil discussion.

So... first as to the OP, is this news? Lol! They do this once every three weeks or so, like clock work, since the packs were introduced. You are just trolling. Plain and simple.

As for the rest... most of you know the answers to your questions. You are just looking for an excuse to whine the same old whine. It would have been better to necro an old thread.

There are separate dev groups working on CM and game content. There have been plenty of new content releases. You may not like some of it, or all of it, but there has been a crap load with more on the way.

I was going make a thoughtful comment, but then I noticed who the OP is. Not worth the effort of a reasonable response. Nothing to see here.
