Odd I got mine done on Nightmare Lands server.
If your in your own base you wont get updates. Also your Ops group needs to have done the most dmg to that kill to get the count and you need to have contributed to the fight. Also you cannot grief the same player you need to kill other players in between.

Thank you Bioware for the 5+ hours of pve box grinding today. Not to mention the reward for my effort... not 1 battlemaster token. usually i complete the weekly on tuesday, this will be a first i dont even bother to attempt it. Kills seemed to count once if the opposing faction member just zoned in. after that the player would not count towards credit or give valor at all. If its like this again tomorrow im going to seriously reconsider continuing my subscription :/

Lol, obvious troll. I solo killed 3 people at central... nothing.

Edit: If you are from EU, that could be the reason you are getting credit. So, no troll I guess.

Atm i'm expecting them to... fix their crap in a reasonable time frame but not to continue screwing up with every single minor patch they release. As in "Oh, look guys, we made a terrible mistake with today's patch, how about we rollback until we fix it!". Or at least a proper testing before they release it. If that's what you call "expecting too much"... Yea... i guess... not. And stop licking their boots, they're not as understaffed as you may think. Not to mention the vast resources they have at their disposal. Like i said, i'm a SW fanboy. But you're obviously blind for the... obvious.

There are lots of issues... Ilum, WZ Daily, PvE encounters, FPS, ect... They do need to fix these and in a timely manner. However they do not have the whole team doing this and EA is not giving them the amount of resources you seem to think they have. As for licking there boots you have me all wrong bud. Only Bioware game i have enjoyed over the years was Mass Effect and thats the only time i will lick their boots or kiss their ***.



Is that supposed to make me feel better? Paying for beta? Awesome... And what's that "rushed to be released"? Rushed? After almost 5 years of development??? Yea... rushed... lol. Nobody argues about the release - awesome indeed, and the leveling - awesome. And then you hit endgame and endless frustration... I agree tho - we are paying for beta. Which is actually the problem...

I am not here to comfort you and make you feel good or bad. However it is the truth that we are still playing a beta version of the game. EA/Bioware should have gotten actual PvPers and PvEers to test there content while it was still "in beta" and this game could have been far better at the end game. However they didn't and so here we are.


I'm trying to stay positive but they just keep doing it wrong. I mean every single minor patch - a new screw up. C'mon... Can't you at least feel it when they're slapping your face with pure insults? Crying is when i come here and cry about "OMG POWERTECH SO OP NERFNERFNREFR!!1". Alas, i'm here presenting a real issue that affects everyone in quite a negative way and this is not crying - this is constructive criticism - and that's the least they deserve. Burning them with fire is more suitable but hey... I don't really have the time to take a plane and nuke them from orbit. And besides we kinda gave quite a lot of suggestions already - personally i'm tired, they're not paying me, i am paying them:

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=234156

And look how well they're implementing them - by screwing up even more with a damn "minor" patch (God, help us when they release 1.2 AGAIN without proper testing)...

They do keep screwing up patches. However like i have been saying for a month now is that before anything gets released they need to test it on the PTR. However no one wants to re-lvl on the PTR so we are going to constantly have these type of patches. I really wish they could get there crap together but i am being nice and trying to help them out.


And? BW did not intend for that to happen and did not test it properly. And? Did they do something to fix their own mistake (for which we paid literally and figuratively speaking)? No, they didn't. Just a bunch of useless copy/pasted yellow answers from a bunch of clueless on the forum boards and Twitter with empty words and promises. Why did they leave the servers online at first place when ppl were FLOODING them with youtube movies of what is happening currently? The problem was obvious for a 3 years old monkey - and they did nothing to prevent it, fix it or stop it, they just stood there and did nothing while ppl were exploiting the sh*t out of their mistake. They were receiving tons of feedback literally every single minute on forums, twitter, youtube, mails, ingame tickets - and they did absolutely NOTHING. But yea, we're asking "too much" from them and crying for no reason... Really? Yea, it could've been avoided. But it wasn't. Second time in a row counting only their patches, not the pseudo-beta they were running for months before the release without realising that most of their "testers" were just treating it as a "Free2Play" game and not doing anything about giving feedback about problems and countless bugs that are still present in the game (that's why we ended up with a product still in "beta" on the release).
They screwed up with the patch and punishing people for there mistake is something EVERY MMO has done. Look at WoW... They have banned so many high end guilds for exploiting something they were told about in a PTR testing phase, or the PvPers that used MMR exploits to get R1. So yes they took forever to fix something but you should be used to that type of stuff by now. Right now with Ilum on my server as a Rep i cant go out there and i have accepted this. Do i like it? **** no. Does it make me want to rage quit? Not really. There are a lot of issues that need to be fixed but until EA gives Bioware Austin the money/resources and there is a working PTR where the players can test patches we can expect to see more bugs in the future and them taking forever to get fixed.

I got all my updates fine, all 150. Not sure why you didnt get them at mid. Maybe players have a cut off for giving valor after a certain amount of deaths in a period of time.

I imagine most players complaining in this thread are republic base instakill exploiters though.

WRONG AGAIN SONNY. Thanks for your horrible contribution to this topic though. I know for a fact that no one is getting kills to count or valor for Kinarth Spider Server.

If i screw up the customers will cry and demand instant fixing of any problem (and trust me - if i'm not able to fix their problem in a matter of hours - i will be without a job). So it's a bit childish to go to my customers and start crying "I'm understaffed and with not enough funding". Customers.Do.Not.Care.About.My.Problems. I have to deal with them because that's what i'm getting payed for. Beginning to see a pattern here?

You and many others have been delt with. However making claims and demanding something wont get you anywhere. There is a yellow post saying the issue was being looked into but thats not good enough for most people so they keep posting and posting and making claim after claim. If you work providing customers service then you should know that some people with call multiple times a day with the same issue even after you have told the person what to do to fix the issue or you told them you would look into it.

I understand people dont care and those people also are narrow minded and need to chill.
