2) FREE penalty resurrect on the same spot.

3) Collect the dna and sell each for 20k on market.

Is that it? Then why are people complaining about it?
I am waiting for this answer too.

Or do those that wish to avoid others because of actions like this not have the same right to an opinion?
If you want solo pve, don't play an mmo.

So they 'splode, then go sell the DNA and then they can afford many vaccines. I don't see the problem? It's easy free creds for new players and introduces them to the fact that events that impact normal gameplay happen.

What solo PvE is available on the Fleet? If you want to avoid it, then go participate in the game, not standign in a social hub that you know is going to gather people together to infect each other for currency.

I'm amazed at the QQ. Vaccine's easy to come by and buyable in quantity if needed. I even had two Imps try and blow themselves up on me on Eidolon, LOL.

It's what always makes me roll my eyes. People take a world event as the end of the world, and it isn't.

Not fun for me....
Get over it. It's an MMO. World Events happen. If you want to complain about it, go PvE, no one is keeping you on Fleet.

And then the poor lvl 10 sells his five dna for 50k and everyone is happy

I think there's a trend.
Quarentine Zone was an abomination.... Maybe it's about time bioware realised they're developing for a Star Wars game not WOW or some piss poor zombie BS rip-off title. Rubbish quest and for a first content update??

I bet the devs play WOW constantly just because they're so bereft of any actual Star Wars knoweledge or ideas/input.

Hey do remember that bit in the movies with all the zombies and aliens affecting people with a disease?? no I don't either.... the only infection here is the disease that BW are pushing on Star Wars fans.
Waiting for the definitive Star Wars sandbox mmo...

Awesome event, where from my point had both Republic and Imperials having fun. Even had cross faction assistance to kill stuff and patience as people did their questing. I have a feeling that for those PVP servers, there was some good old fashion world fighting, as there was some here on my server.

I see it as a fun time for all. Sorta had many players actually doing stuff in the same area instead of wondering *** everyone is.
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is one step beyond logic.

That is just being a jerk.

If you want to infect people, at least choose ones who can get the cure. That's not QQ, that's common decency.
I cant imagine Bioware set this up to be expensive. They did wanna have a epidemic spread through out the galaxy. So many folks wanted the STATIC workd to be more lively and when they do something unusual and fun you complain... I jusy stayed off the station. I am now watching baseball so im logged out so i will miss it completely...

I will not be paying, to play a game, that forces stupid stuff like this on players.

Please remove this, if you want to continue to have me, as a customer.

Some like it, but i think its completely out of line.
Go in a warzone and get killed, it cures it. Warzone was were I got infected, died and it went.
