You might be aware of a bug in the Fractured Uprising, currently allowing players to bypass some of the mechanics of the encounter. Bioware is investigating the issue at the moment and considering a possible removal of the Uprising from the Galactic Command Uprisings Rotation.
This weekend the issue with the exploit was discussed in more detail during the live recording of the new Corellian Run Radio podcast episode. Moxys (one of the hosts) contacted me after the show and graciously provided me with Bioware’s official statement that the guys received via PM from community manager Eric Musco. Here’s what Musco told CRR:
First, thank you (and everyone else) who reported the bug taking place in the Fractured Uprising. We are aware of it and are investigating the issue and its impact. As for action that could be taken we will reiterate our stance on exploits: Any bug which a player can use to gain an advantage can be viewed as an exploit and could lead to action being taken against their account.
To answer your questions:
- What are some steps players can do in order keep themselves safe, especially since this particular exploit happens so fast?
Let the group know ahead of time that you don’t want to participate in any exploits, to go through the Uprising as intended. If an exploit occurs, report any offending individuals. Alert BioWare privately of this issue (we are already aware in this instance and are investigating)
- Would BioWare consider removing Fractured from the rotation of Uprisings until it is patched?
This is a great suggestion, we are looking into this as a part of our investigation of The Fractured Uprising. Hope that answers your question, I hope you guys have a great stream.
Honestly, I had not done that Uprising much after I researched it for my Written Guides, as it’s one of the most boring and shortest ones. Obviously, I don’t care about my Command Ranks, but this very same Uprising is currently the most popular and most farmed one as it is indeed the quickest and arguably the easiest to do for Command Rank XP.
Here’s one of my runs through the Fractured Uprising- Veteran Mode Run with friends and Subscribers from a live stream archived event.
