#4 7/16/2013 3:09:00 PMHello there folks,
There were a couple of bugs with the Jawa Balloon in the past. However, Game Update 1.2 in April of last year fixed what the OP describing (which is that the balloon could disappear randomly sometimes). There was another bug that persisted until Game Update 1.4 in September of last year that would cause players who used a persistent emote (such as /sit) to be teleported back to the beginning of the balloon ride.
Since then, though, this is the first thread I've seen of this nature. We'll be keeping and eye on this thread in case it's somehow rebroken, so if anyone else experiences problems with the Jawa Balloon on Tatooine, please post the details here (and don't forget to /bug!) so we can investigate further.
Thanks for the report!
#7 7/16/2013 3:54:00 PMHi there,
To clarify my post above: I've certainly heard anecdotes of this nature while running through missions on Tatooine myself. Also, I know there's a chance I've missed this being made into a thread before. Nonetheless, it's the first thread I've seen in the Bug Report Forum where a player is specifically calling it out as an issue for them.
That being said, something that will greatly assist in being able to fix outlying instances of something like this will be to gather as many specific details about it as possible when it happens so that we can pass that along to the fixers of bugs.
Some things to consider:
How far into the ride were you?
What time was it? (So we can look into things like how many instances of Tatooine there were, etc.)
What were you doing at the time? (Were you using emotes, holostatues, Toys, attempting to Duel, etc?)
How many others were with you on the ride?
Were you in a group?
Were you in a queue for Group Finder or a Warzone?
Did the balloon disappear or was your character's location changed?
