I didn't say it was reasonable, merely that saying "new people are permanently locked out" isn't reasonable either.

Depends, I suppose, on whether we mean "new players" or "new characters" when we say "new people". New *players* can't lock *themselves* out of it, but they can lock their *characters* out.

And all they actually did was punish people for doing what they are supposed to in the game, which is leveling their characters, by taking away access to an event quest that many people enjoy, or at least want to be able to. I find no valid excuse for that.
Again you talk as if it is impossible to do the quest on a different character, as if the *player* is locked out because that character made level 28. And the function of the AoEs is to remove all the non-mission mobs from the area, not to remove uninvolved *players* from the area.

Having thought about this in more detail myself, though, I'd say that making the "arrival" AoEs only hit NPCs would be a good place to start, and to do the same for the Kingpins as well. Samovan Bann on Coruscant, for example is problematic because he spawns in a questing area (there's at least one mission on Coruscant that takes the character onto that platform - you get it from the security services guy across from the entrance to the Gonthor Industries Heroic), and Lord Trok on DK is inside the effing Dark Temple where everyone has to go.

So yeah, fix the AoE to be anti-NPC, and put the mission back for everyone. You have my vote.
To go to Belsavis, you must go to Belsavis.
