Wrong dude. We are saying if you want to PvE and not deal with World Events, GO PVE! Play the game the way you want to play it, don't stand around fleet like a drone.

Just sit back and enjoy some exploding goodness.
If this was a filler update down the line I'd be a bit more accomodating. As a first one that isn't set squarely within Star Wars Tales of the Jedi/old Republic era (the proper era, not BW spewfest), irks me considerably.

Towards the end of the zombie event, I was part of the last line of defense for the last healer in Stormwind, and we'd end up with armies of plague zombies trying to finally finish the city off and leave it a death zone. Epic. And of course there were hordes of people whining.

About the game being different for a few days. About getting infected. About not being able to do the same thing they'd been grinding for months before and would for months afterwards.

People like predictable, mindless, always-the-same. It's kinda pathetic, IMHO. MMO's are at their best when they do things like this and utterly upset the apple cart for a week or so.

Enjoy the mayhem the devs have created while it lasts, before the people who prefer to complain endlessly try to insure it never happens again.

The mission is designed in a way that promotes this type of activity. It's intentional. It's a plague.
It does not matter whether you think it's intentional or not. It is simply a matter of courtesy to ensure that the other people actually want to participate in that aspect of the game or world event that way everyone is enjoying themselves and having fun instead of just you having fun at their expense.

See, the problem is many many many people payed the same investment to play in this game too. If you want 100% control over your investment go play a single player game.

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.
Oh awesome, I never thought of that! Off to tython!

Seriously people need realize that just because YOU don't like it, it doesn't speak for everyone, and your whining crybaby I'm gonna quit....is no better than a child having a temper tantrum...really think about what you people are doing....
Aren't you being just as narrow minded?

Definitely this!

compared to the last few days of wrath invasion, this is minor. you at least can run over to tatooine and do a quest chain and get immunized. during the wrath event I literally avoided the major cities for days. there was no option to do a quest to stop it...there wasn't even a vaccine available for any cost. you just had to accept that you would get ganked every 6 meters by a horde of undead.

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.
Have you even DONE Taris yet?

The Rakghoul plague is straight out of KoTOR and not only canon, but long-standing canon at that. Heck, Troopers-

Do the world quests. It's not just "LOL, ZOMBIE PLAGUE"!

How is it at anyone's expense? There's no penalty for dying from it. In fact you are REWARDED. You can rez on the spot, and the disease is gone. The impact its going to have on you if you choose to ignore it is trivial at best.
