Same, I have been stuck with Voss Rampage 2 as well (and CZ weekly) since PTS went live.

Going to try this myself (I have the same display). I'll be a bit upset after completing at least 20 POs that I chose to do across several characters. If I only get points for the ones presented to me then thats going to be a huge problem.

UPDATE
Just finished to two "pinned" POs and got daily credit for them. Not good. Thanks for not letting us know that the pinning means something

One of mine was Taking Sides (kill insectoids on Voss). I was able to kill the entire spawn of shaclaws several times and was waiting on them to respawn. I obviously had the entire planet to myself, but a second or more person trying to kill these targets would have made for a bad time. Specific targets vs "Enemies" should have very fast spawn times or be indigenous species (Sand people? Rakghouls?). I know insectoids is the main theme of this season because of the Companion reward - its going to be nasty if you don't turn things up by alot.

Were you able to find the Galactic Seasons page?

Yes, but only because I read the posts that mentioned it was on the login rewards page.


Were you able to locate your Galactic Seasons Priority Objectives in the Galactic Seasons screen?

I see nothing on the Galactic Seasons page that says what the priority objectives are. I did click on a block of text with mysterious icons in the upper right hand corner that had the words "Daily Priority Objectives" and "Weekly Priority Objectives", but they were glommed together as one link that link just took me to the Conquest Page. I don't even see anything referring to the Weekly Priority Objectives on the Conquest Page. I assumed the two POs at the top of the list were the daily ones but I question that since they are not called that. I do see they are based on daily repeatable conquest objectives. Do I go by that? I dunno.


In the Conquest screen there is a list of tentative Daily and Weekly Priority Objectives. These are all denoted as "PO: Name". What feedback do you have regarding the current list of objectives?

My only feedback so far on the objectives comes from me doing the insectoid one on Voss. I cannot see this working on live at all, since only one or two people doing it at the same time will mean fighting for mobs and waiting for respawn and then fighting for mobs again. You can say group up, but what if I'm already in a group of 4 and we have killed all the shaclaw. Now we have to try to beat the other guy to the next spawn. I guess that's fun for some people, but I'm not into that mine-not-yours kind of race anymore.

Also, along those lines. Will these kinds of objectives work in ops teams? If I'm here with my guild doing Voss: Defeat Enemies 1 and 2 and we kill any insectoids, will those count for me? If I understand correctly, not everyone will have the same PO I have, but a few potentially will. Will some get credit and not others as currently happens for quest objectives when you are in an ops group?


How do you feel about the cadence and points offered in GS?

I didn't get that far. I'm still looking for 75 shaclaw on Voss.


What other general feedback would you would like to tell us?

I think there may be a seed of something good here, but the interface looks like something that only works if you already know where everything is. Maybe those links on the Galactic Seasons Page should go to their own page that just spells out the Daily and Weekly POS, which each of those being a link to those Conquest targets on the Conquest page. Also, I think I would put something on the Galactic Guide Entry for Login Rewards that mentions Galactic Seasons to make it more evident that that is where you go to learn about and participate in GS.

Since everything on the GS Vendor is bind to legacy, there's no reason to prevent any one character from buying everything. Why disable the ability to buy a blaster when the player is on a sage, when the blaster is legacy, meaning it can be tossed in the player's legacy vault and picked up by a gunslinger alt later?

O.o I just bought the entire stock of weapons from the vendor earlier today on a single character. Are you sure you had enough tokens for what you were trying to buy?

Hello everyone,

As we head into week 2 for the Galactic Seasons PTS, we wanted to give you a small update based upon the feedback we have received so far. There have been quite a few bug fixes, but if you see more, please report them here!
  • Catch-up is now enabledů.this PTS build simulates what it might look like halfway through a Galactic Season.
  • Rewards added to many levels that had no rewards.
  • Split the Seasons vendor into two to clarify which rewards are permanently available and which rotate.
  • Cleaned up how the Conquest window displays your priority objectives. This is still a work in progress so please keep giving feedback!
Below is a new set of feedback questions to help us improve the system all around.

We have updated Priority Objectives. With the update to them:
  • Are they clear as to what you need to do to complete them?
  • Could you find them quickly without having to look hard?
  • Could you efficiently track their progress?
  • Do you feel the Daily Objectives are ones you can complete in 20-30 minutes?
  • Do you feel the Weekly Objectives are ones you can complete in 50-70 minutes?
  • Any general feedback you may have regarding the Priority Objectives and the update are welcome.
We have updated the reward cadence for Galactic Seasons.
  • Do the current list of rewards appear appealing?
  • How do you feel regarding the cadence of rewards (when you get which rewards when)?
We have added a secondary Galactic Seasons vendor to the Fleet.
  • Does this second vendor help clarify what rewards are Seasonal and which are rotational?
Catch-Up is now enabled.
  • Were you able to quickly and effectively determine which Reward Levels were eligible for Catch-Up?
  • Did you utilize Catch-Up? If so, how many Reward Levels did you purchase?
  • What are your thoughts on the current credit pricing model for Catch-Up?
  • Did this feature make sense to you?
  • Any other general feedback you may have about our Catch-Up system are welcome!
Thank you for all of the valuable feedback you have provided so far!

The new weapons/armor that were added to the collection are bugging out when previewed on a character, i.e. invisible body etc.

Are they clear as to what you need to do to complete them? No - they are all called Daily or Weekly Priority Objective only, rather than telling you what is involved. You need to click on each individual objective to see what is involved. You do not know how many points you are getting for them, nor what they entail.
Could you find them quickly without having to look hard? No - see above
Could you efficiently track their progress? Yes
Do you feel the Daily Objectives are ones you can complete in 20-30 minutes? Yes
Do you feel the Weekly Objectives are ones you can complete in 50-70 minutes? Yes

Do the current list of rewards appear appealing? Mostly yes
How do you feel regarding the cadence of rewards (when you get which rewards when)? Poor, still far too many empty days.

Does this second vendor help clarify what rewards are Seasonal and which are rotational? Yes - this is the best implementation

Were you able to quickly and effectively determine which Reward Levels were eligible for Catch-Up? Yes
Did you utilize Catch-Up? If so, how many Reward Levels did you purchase? Yes, 40 levels as it is not costing any credits at the moment. (Maybe a bug!)
What are your thoughts on the current credit pricing model for Catch-Up? Actually spot on - I'm pretty rich in game, but this allows you to grab a couple of levels but gets VERY VERY expensive if you try and do the entire season, as it should be.
Did this feature make sense to you? Yes, though it should make it clear that you are purchasing all the previous levels too.

So it's shaping up much better now.

Current bugs:

Clicking the lower Priority Objectives button in the Galactic Seasons window doesn't do anything.

The left hand drop down menu has the galactic seasons level bar and line not matching up

The Galactic Seasons horizontal progression bar is still no relation to what's actually going on and is instead just incrementing based on levels completed. https://imgur.com/a/zTJOf77

Clicking on potential reward items in Galactic Seasons window just brings up the unlock window, rather than showing what they actually are.

There is a UI bug when you go to the final page of the galactic seasons window. It goes 97, 98, 99, 100, 95, 96. Image here https://imgur.com/a/QNmIXP0

Current feedback:

Having the Priority Objectives mixed in with Conquest is a recipe for disaster and is confusing.
UI for GS is very low res. UI is still not very user friendly, can't click to see what rewards are as it brings up unlock window only.
Still too many empty rewards - some examples of minor items that you can include to bulk it out are as follows - Crafting prefabs, Crafting Satchels, Manaan Research Data, Recovered Relics, KDY Construction Kits, Relics of Ossus, Eternal Championship Trophy, Ziost Memory Holographs, Golden Certificates, Reputation Items, Random Utility Decorations, Random Bronze Decoration Packs, Random Jawa Junk, Fleet Commendations

  • Are they clear as to what you need to do to complete them?
    I had no trouble getting that info
  • Could you find them quickly without having to look hard?
    They were stickied to the top of the conquest list, so yes, easy to find
  • Could you efficiently track their progress?
    The Daily I did (kill 75 on home worlds) tracked nicely.
  • Do you feel the Daily Objectives are ones you can complete in 20-30 minutes?
    Easily in this case, a simple 'defeat enemies 2' on Tython
  • Do you feel the Weekly Objectives are ones you can complete in 50-70 minutes?
    mmmmaybe - the one I got was Galactic Starfighter, so if it pops it shouldn't take too long - there's so few on the test server I barely bothered to check the queue for that at all. If that's the one I get for the whole week, I'm fairly sure it won't happen. The Refresh button for that is an excellent idea!
  • Any general feedback you may have regarding the Priority Objectives and the update are welcome.
We have updated the reward cadence for Galactic Seasons.
  • Do the current list of rewards appear appealing?
    Seems fine to me.
    One caveat I have is that once we get the kubaz companion leveled up, the gift rewards for him won't be worth much.
  • How do you feel regarding the cadence of rewards (when you get which rewards when)?
    So far, so good, but would be better if every level had some kind of reward, even a trivial one like a credit voucher.
We have added a secondary Galactic Seasons vendor to the Fleet.
  • Does this second vendor help clarify what rewards are Seasonal and which are rotational?
    Yep
Catch-Up is now enabled.
  • Were you able to quickly and effectively determine which Reward Levels were eligible for Catch-Up?
    Yes, the buttons make it clear
  • Did you utilize Catch-Up? If so, how many Reward Levels did you purchase?
    I bought three levels
  • What are your thoughts on the current credit pricing model for Catch-Up?
    It scales up nicely - one or two is easy, but it gets very expensive very fast.
  • Did this feature make sense to you?
    I think it's a fine way to cover for those times when you can't get in and complete goals.
  • Any other general feedback you may have about our Catch-Up system are welcome!
