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.
