    So making this platoon bug worse is for reasons I won't go into here my guild could only complete 2 platoons in the middle territory.
    So that is 50 players trying to add the same 30 characters at once
    Lets just say there were many instances of this bug appearing today.
    so now because of a bug that has been deemed an exploit and being that CG has warned don't do it we as players are expected to what coordinate yet another thing outside of the game and send 1 player at a time to go in and fill platoons so we don't encounter the bug??? Yeah that sounds fun.

    Yep. More sheets. More 3rd party apps. More time wasted.

    Don't even fill platoons, it's a joke

    We haven't filled any since p4

    Why in the world would a guy who spent all this money on new toons like the Nightsisters and Kylo donate them?

    Hey, thanks for your money, but now put them in a platoon mission and not use them

    Ridiclous

    This, no one put in $ just so they'd sit in a platoon. C'mon! And the battles are so ridiculous it takes zzMT and company just to get through it. I can't even beat the 4th wave with my once-arena Sith team - that's WITH me pulling CD and using AB on the fools. DS TB was supposed to be tougher, but this is out of hand.

    ^^ I think this is what irks ppl and why some heavier spenders either quit or stop spending. To help my guild- I should dump money into a toon maybe I’ll never use to fill 1/6 of those platoon requirements. Get real.
  • This Tb is broken plain and simple. Territory missions are impossible . And How many 5* brand new release characters can you require for platoons. Surely half the guild already has at least 1 each. Ridiculous. Not fun. Just a chore. Keep pandering to the top 1%.
  • At least they don't require toons like Starck or Probe Droid...

    (Looks in game at today's platoons, sobs)

    ...son of a Gungan!

  • Still would love to hear a reply on this from the Devs.
    Had it happen with me today, trying to get this broken TB going for my guild.
    Are you going to suspend my account because your system is doing this ? Or are you going to require us to go in one at a time and slot in platoons because your system is not working as stated above ?
    Some answer would be nice from you Devs

    Please cancel this horrible player experience called TB: Hoth Imperial invasion.

    So many bugs and mistakes.

    1 guy can cheat and gain max stars for his 49 honest guild members.
    How exactly are you gonna deal with this ?

    Simple solution is to avoid this situation by cancelling the current tb and give us something in return like rewards = to our last TB, Light side.

    This is a great idea. To ensure you aren't rewarding cheaters, just make rewards = the last TB.

    The thing is, they are about, I've seen edited posts by kozi in the past hour. they are lurking in the shadows.

    Afraid of the light, they are.
  • Remember the old Darth Vader bug, near the beginning of the game? Cheaters got their illegal DV capped to 5* stats (when most players were only able to have him 4*) and nothing else happened to them. This will have a similar result. Maybe they'll give them a 30-star reward or something like that, instead of max rewards. But no accounts will be banned.
    And people who accidentally did whatever the bug does once or twice, don't have to worry. It will be very easy to distinguish an accidental click from hundreds of deliberate clicks.

    Yes, I know they are about, it is why I posted and asked.
    I also know, they have pretty much already stated they are not going to comment till the conclusion of this TB. Simple fact remains, even if you know how to or do not know how to reproduce this exploit, it is extremely simple to do if you do not know it. This being the main reason they should have shut it down, as soon as they realized the exploit was present. Not taking into account the broken content, kitten platoon requirements and other things, but a flat out exploit should have taking the TB off the tracks.
    Just my 2 cents

    It's not a bug - just illogically dumb.
  • Again, per their response, just go recruit a player who has them or "acquire them yourself".

    Hey, there's a glut of whales just waiting to be recruited! Not a single one of them had said "forget this, I quit".

    Errrrrrr, wait a second...

    Ways CG can make up for the mistake:
    1. Have recently added DS Toons and ships (FO) to be FTP right away. This can help us to build teams and complete platoons in the future, without having to wait 2-3 months. Also have several events that grant DS shards.
    2. Emperor Palpatine Zetas and Darth Vader Unique (with Zeta), to help us boost Empire squads in TB.

    Bonus: Maybe add Iden Versio?
  • I'd rather they take anything that isn't f2p out of platoons.
  • Too bad they didn't put the Wampa in the platoon.
    The joke would have been complete !!!

  • I'd rather they take anything that isn't f2p out of platoons.

    I'd ALMOST agree with this, but when Paploo / Wampa / Falcon / Kylo's V1 ship / Reaper hit, they said WAI, recruit players who have them or "acquire them yourself" ie. spend money. So no, that's not going to change. The issue is that after this broken TB, there just aren't enough characters to go around for platoons that aren't stuck behind a paywall or needed in required missions. I don't know how or IF they can actually balance it unless they can put a minimum amount requested in days 5 and 6 like they do now. For example, we only see a Falcon or two, Reaper or two, etc. on those days. You usually don't see paywalled characters in LS TB until that point in time.

    Hey! There's still TOMORROW! You just need about half a dozen 7* Wampas and you, good guild, are good to GO! Happy farming!

    Hiya Holotable Heroes,

    Our team is working on a server release today that will slowly roll out a fix that'll address Territory Battle's Platoon Deployment mechanic. This fix will do its work in the background, so players will NOT require a client restart of their game. Let is know if you encounter any issues.

    @CG_LucifersDaddy and @CG_Leviathan will be on hand evaluating the numbers and taking action on accounts found to have engaging with this exploit.

    As always, we appreciate your patience and reports in regards to this serious issue. Battle on!

    I thought it wasn't possible to make changes to TB while it was going on?

    Not so black and white as all that. Sometimes it's client side (and that can be risky) sometimes backend/server side only, etc etc.

    But as with any update there's always a chance it can mess stuff up. So studios don't like to, as a practice, do emergency updates.
  • At least we know they are working on fixing some of the issues I guess. I think that's a step in the right direction. No point in taking TB down now, there's only a day left.
