I would LOVE it if they fixed the Error Code 9000. It disconnects me, as well as many others (by the responses on the Forums) on a frequent basis. Driving me bonkers.

Still love the game, however. :)

@(Unverified) outside of inconsistent lag(my laptop doesnt quite meet MINIMUM requirements so that could be the reason) error 9000 is the only bug Ive come across and it is indeed annoying

@(Unverified) TBH I think that is connection lost due to unstable connection. Pretty much a DC from say WoW. I can't be 100% since I have never experienced it but that would be my guess. I assume their netcoding does not allow for much of a timeout and kicks the user pretty fast well the client dc's from the server pretty fast.

@Kane Hart

Most of the error codes are connection related, so that sounds plausible. Never had it myself and I always pride myself on having a great and stable connection, even if it isn't that fast.

They fixed two of the three most annoying Smugger/Agent bugs in today's patch:

1) Some large mobs could keep you from entering cover when targeted. (fixed)
2) Some abilities would get interrupted while in cover for no reason. (fixed)
3) The Cover Bar keeps turning back on every time you change areas. (Argh!)

They fixed the Sith corruption toggle; why not the cover bar? Hopefully next week!

So cover bar is what that thing is called. I didn't know there was a toggle - I've just been placing my new abilities twice - once standing and once in cover each time.

Hooray! It wasn't in the patch notes, but the option to disable the Cover Bar now stays as set even after you re-log our change planets. I'm now a happy Agent. If there can be such a thing...

@aurickle As an Agent the only thing that bugged me on that list (well not really on the list) was the Sith Corruption bug. I know it's silly but as a role-player it makes no sense for a non-force sensitive to look like Palpatine's evil off-spring... especially when they're a Chiss. It makes perfect sense for a Sith but not anyone else who does not use the force.

I'm so glad that it's fix and my Chiss stays dark blue after zoning, as for the other stuff... icing on the cake. ;-p

--2) Some abilities would get interrupted while in cover for no reason. (fixed)--

Whoo Who! That's a biggie, I had actually swapped seek cover to Shift-F and Crouch to F keystroke because Seek cover was so damn buggy. Your guy with sort of do a crouch/stand/crouch/stand/crouch/stand but couldn't do his ability you were trying to do. It could be deadly at times so I just starting using the crouch in place. Nice fix!

I am glad that the Sith Corruption is fixed. I just want Bioware to finish ironing out the other bugs as well. Still, I am enjoying the game a lot even with the bugs.

As long as they're bigger then the previous bug patch we've had, they'll be fine. If they are the same size or smaller, it'll be truly a disappointment for me. Although I won't quit the game over something as small as this(imo), it'll be like eh...

Just waiting on ArcheAge.

Yeah, i'll check back in April...wish I hadn't thought the game would be ready at launch, I know better...but a couple of months from now this might be polished enough to play.

Loving the game personally, but my biggest issue, which may not be a bug but is surely bugging me, is how if you have a companion out during a flashpoint/operation, and you happen to have to use an elevator or any type of instance change to get to a new area inthe flashpoint, your companion leaves. This has caused a many deaths when grouped in a two man and entering combat to only find you are missing that healer/PDS companion again....!

How about sending a companion on a 50 minute mission only to realize they were your selected companion and you can't select another without canceling the mission? Rarely happens, but still annoying.

Perhaps an issue, but really I'll take having a companion at all over all other MMOs that do not (even pet classes are not as good), then to have to manage companion availability and pathing.

How Bioware handles their game post-release is what will determine the degree of its success. So far I've been lucky. I haven't had to cope with the game breaking problems many other have been experiencing, but I am nevertheless disappointed with Bioware's demonstrated ability to fix these problems and other more simple ones. It seems like every patch brings new problems, in other words, while many of the lesser, more readily fixable problems, such as disappearing reverse engineering buttons, unharvestable resource nodes, or vanishing companions remain unaddressed. While they aren't game breaking, they are definitely frustrating to deal with and they occur often enough for me to consider unsubscribing for a few months in hopes that they'll be fixed in that time.

I keep getting stuck between rocks.

I hope they eventually fix that.

@Beltyra Skyrim has a better balance between bugs and great gameplay.

@Beltyra I have yet to have Skyrim crash on me a single time. And I've probably played it almost as much as I work at my full time job. SWTOR on the other hand crashed as soon as I loaded it up. Not saying it's a bad game, or anything, but yea. Glitches and crashes are a lot worse when they are in a MMO game also.
