The trade ins for Elite War Hero Combat Medic gear and Combat Tech gear are swapped

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills because I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else yet. I play a merc healer and have a full set of War Hero Combat Medic gear. When I got home from work today and tried to buy some elite war pieces I realized it wouldn't let me buy any of the Medic gear, only the Combat tech gear.

Lo and behold if you look are the turn-ins required for the upgrades, the Medic gear specifies it needs Combat Tech gear piece to turn in, the Combat Tech gear needs a Medic piece. I'm on Pot5 and I have no idea if this issue is specifc to me, to my server, or game wide.

Kind of ridiculous I go through all the effort to get max comms, but I can't buy any of the upgraded gear yet and now I'm gunna have to wait for another patch for this to be fixed. Get your **** together Bioware.

Edit: I had a guild mate check it and he sees the same problem with the trade in descriptions even though he's not a merc. Even if I try and right click the piece to buy, it won't let me buy the Medic piece without a piece of Combat Tech gear to trade in.

This issue was reported early on in the PTS forum and was ignored, so the bug was pushed to live servers. We can only hope they'll patch it soon.

Same issue here. Makes you wonder if the devs even care, not even responding to tickets about it.

A bug like this is gamebreaking and should have been hot-fixed as soon at it was discovered.

However I do agree this should already have been fixed. A bit like PVP balance.
