I, for one, am thinking this will only fragment the all ready small PvP community even further thus creating even more a sorry state of affairs for PVP in this game.
People need to get it through their thick skulls that this is not PvP in the traditional MMO sense.
ALOT of PvE players will play this because it is not even slightly like the regular MMO PvP. I loathe PvP in SW:TOR but I'll be playing the heck out of this expansion because i love space shooters.
And that is what this is. A space starship shooter.
Comparing this to regular MMO PvP is like comparing call of duty to regular MMO PvP.
