A pretty big bug has appeared in SWTOR’s Fractured Uprising, causing the first boss to effectively off himself before players get the chance. The bad news is, using the bug to progress through the Uprising is considered an exploit. The good news is that you won’t be banned for it.

The developers give two reason for not banning players who exploit this bug. The first is that despite the exploit, Fractured Uprising offers players better CXP when compared to other Uprisings so players who are in it for Command Ranks would be running Fractured no matter what. The other reason is that the bug is self created, and doesn’t require players to do anything in order for it to happen.

The other good news here is that the developers plan to fix it in short order with the implementation of Update 5.1 on January 24. As with all updates, this may change but you can keep track of the developer’s plans for the fix via the thread on the SWTOR forums.

    Game is dead, if they ban those few nerd milking cows, devs will starve to death.

    • HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA so true. It’s the only reason why they wouldn’t ban the nerds milking the cows otherwise they would.

    In reply to Sad Day, almost every MMO player knows Adventure Quest. But on another note I think even the possibility of banning someone for abusing an exploit is incredibly stupid. The player didn’t bring the exploit into the game, the company and its shit coding skills did, so why punish someone because they chose to capitalize on YOUR mistakes. It’s like picking Soraka ADC in LoL then getting mad at the enemies for shitting on you.

      Partly what I was trying to say their coding skills is pretty bad and it’s worse since they only got 1 coder for their games. Or at least 1 coder for AQWorlds. I don’t know if they got coders for seperate games but they decided to punish players for capitalizing on their mistakes. I tried raising the issue myself with the support team they shot me down immedietly. Their support team is very unreliable from my experience. They still won’t be done fixing the coding fixes till either later this year or likely 2018 if even that. But you won’t see me on any of their games I guarentee that.

        Oh sorry I mean they been working on these coding issues since 2010-2012 and they still aren’t done with them yet. They claim they might be done with it early 2017 but I wouldn’t be suprised if it went into 2018.

    Wish the devs of this one indie dev browser game I know was that nice. Theres a similar bug like this it causes you to 1 shot everything but in a private instance where no other players are around and they are still banning players. It is an exploit but it can’t be used in public instances where players are around but you can invite your friends to the private instance if you really want. People been trying to keep it secret but the devs already know. I admit I used it but the devs made alot of the drop rated stupidly hard. They made it so stupidly hard like around 0.1% drop as example for plenty of items to the point I quit their community base. They didn’t see nothing wrong with it they thought the players needed a challenge the players were mad and trying to find ways to farm it easier we tried this exploit similar to this bug swtor had we got banned.

      What’s that other game you speak of?

    • Sad Day on January 17, 2017

      It’s a small time game not many people heard of and has a very small community it’s called AQWorlds. Going off topic a bit personally I wouldn’t recommand trying it if I was you I had bad experiences on it.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
