I think I'll save my RP build for Rp and reserve an option to refrain from using lightsabers. I was really surprised at amount of negative feedback I got even though I was having some mad fun. The pleasure of one at the expense of others I guess. Even still, the community has a right to the law of their land.
Don't listen to them. As long as it is fun for you, you're a winner.

The real losers are the ones who force themselves to play the way others tell them to, and lose the fun factor because of it. Win or lose, who cares. It is the fun that matters. Isn't that the reason people play video games in the first place; to have fun?
You know... normally I would agree with you. Play the way you want; I'm not paying your subscription. However, your response to the OP is remarkably short sighted and selfish when it comes to a multiplayer game where your gameplay (good or bad) impacts the fun that other people are having. If I am so bad at PvE that I keep dying, over and over again, but I'm doing that on my own, it's nobody else's business because I'm only affecting myself. If I want to spend an entire night dying repeatedly, not finishing any quests and gaining no commendations, credits, or XP, who cares? I have the right to do so. But when I queue with a group of people (in any context, PvE or PvP), they have a right to expect that I am going to try and do my best, as they are more than likely attempting to win the match, finish the raid, or whatever, and expect that everyone else in the group is trying to do the same. If I'm brand new, but trying to get better, so be it. But if I'm purposely handicapping myself without my group's knowledge and consent, that's very rude, selfish, and inconsiderate. That has nothing to do with the "law of their land," either. That's just simple common courtesy.
Cancelled subscription again. Heading back to Star Wars Galaxies on Bloodfin. Send me an email if you're interested in learning about it (or Google Bloodfin).
