Triangle Lock Button

What the hell is with the new lock/unlock button on the Quickbar? It's just a triangle! You can't see, just from looking at it, whether the bar is unlocked or locked. I realise you can hover over it and then look at the description - but common! There was nothing wrong with the actual padlock image that was there before - it ****** worked! Why replace it with a generic ****** triangle?

I heard it was a bug and they were changing it back - but there have been 2 updates since it was installed - ***?

Is this just me? Surely not.

Agreed. Nothing positive about this change.

They already replied that it was accidental and will be fixed.

Bioware has said many times that it's a bug, they did not mean to change it, and are going to fix it.

You dont accidentally change code to remove a padlock and insert a triangle.

You obviously aren't a programmer.

So, your choices were:
  • Click on it and try to move your icons. If they don't move, click it again.
  • Wig out on the forums about it.

It's still a ridiculously stupid bug, painfully obvious that the client was pushed live 2 patches ago with zero testing... not even a simple log in... and wasnt fixed in the patch we just had.

Perfectly justified to be annoyed by it at this point, and given the glacial speed at which bw addresses bugs and imbalance, we may see the padlock icon return some time in 2014.

But if you accidentally put the triangle art asset where the padlock was, it gets changed for you.

It's a minor bug that they're 1) aware of and 2) will fix soon.
Nothing more to fret about.

The triangle could be a placeholder image.
