Believe it or not, I was told it was a bug the same day the changes went live, with a 3 seconds response time.
Did they made up an standard answer to lie to us at the office? Just NOT possible.
With all the posts on the matter, the response you received should have been stickied. All I saw was tons of posts/threads/dicussions that went unanswered/ignored. I even made some of them. What are we supposed to think when majority opinion is "on purpose", due to the 13th patch notes saying "Players will no longer be able to bypass the ground encounters on The Cure.", and no Dev speaks up to the contrary in the main areas of the forum?
Also the new notes say "The borg geometry has been returned to “The Cure” ground." So again, what are we supposed to think?
