The Codex system

Preface: I received a security warning today regarding www.swtor.com as an untrustworthy site, I wonder if they just meant the people than run the company, anyhow, I digress. Here is the post.

So, I started a new character, a Sith Warrior. Lovely person mind you. He enjoys long walks on the beach, quiet nights by the fire, reading a book, or punishing Vette repeatedly for her continued failures. I will make another post about this, which is, I think Punish should be on a shorter timer and also include kicks and other assorted ways to insure that Vette does what I tell her.

So, I'm trying to complete Korriban as an entire planet in the codex achievements stuff, only to find out that two points in the Codex haven't made it to live and that they only existed in Beta. I figure, hey, Bioware forgot this minor part. I travel to Dromund Kaas and attempt to do the same thing. Well, lets just say, I'm completely unimpressed with Bioware. This isn't because they didn't transfer this to live, it's because it's gone a full year without them actually fixing it. It shouldn't take a year to fix these things. It should take less than 3 weeks.

Some solutions to this problem and maybe some conversational dialog, because I'd hate for this to sound like me just bashing on Bioware, because, that's just out of line and unproductive, and maybe undeserving and stuff.

Does Bioware actually test these items?
Does Bioware actually read feedback from beta-testers?
Is this game still in Beta?
Is this really a game and instead an attempt to see how far a person's patience can be pushed?
How many people have had problems with being unable to complete Codex entries?
When should the customer actually expect some results from the people they employ?

Thoughts, Suggestions, Comments, Concerns?

not enough
none that they acknowledge
seems like it
patience young padawan
everyone
realistically, minor bugs should be hotfixed within a week. Any major bugs should be addressed in 3 weeks to a month.

If you can look past the bugs, this game is rather enjoyable for what it is. it's a star wars MMO that was released too early and that has been poorly maintained. I play the game and have fun though.

I am baffled that the codex is still not fixed. How hard can that be?

sometimes a little humor and a few quick jabs might keep bioware alert and motivated to do their jobs

There's a lot of broken titles for world missions, or, ones they considered in beta and decided to take out for whatever reason. I'd really like to see those back.

Buuuuut fixing the Codex doesn't bring EA / WARE any money now does it?

Cartel Market does.

Makeb expansion does.

Codex fix does not.

BIOWARE doesn't hear the sound of their customer's complaints. BIOWARE only hears the sound of their customer's money.

By the Force, how sloppy can they be?



They are really pushing the boundaries in sloppiness.
