Why can't I just die to random npc mob to avoid the effect?

Why is that affecting you and your beloved event? I am not asking them to remove the event, I'm asking why is the only way to not deal with it is a cash sink or quit playing.

What were you coming to fleet for?
-buying new gear for your level?
-training up new skills?
-putting something up in the GTN to make some coin?
-buying new crew skills?
-about to run a FP?
-trolling general chat?

Hmm, many many things I prolly missed from this list, but most players I assume come to fleet to partake in some sort of economy, which revolves around currency. You just got infected with free in game currency.

How could you not want that?

They are BIG on story and ROLEPLAYING.

There is an unstoppable plague.

It is spreading.

You have a few options. Get infected, run for your life, buy a vaccine.

You DO NOT HAVE THE OPTION TO IGNORE A PLAGUE.

Hide, or face it. It does not care if you like it.
By this reasoning, give us the ability to kill or to cure infected people.

If this is based on RP and story then people should be able to shoot infected people on sight to try and stop the plague....

The next thing is for lower level players. I buy a 2k vaccine. Then I am out questing, and I die. A few minutes later, I come across someone with the plague in my quest turn in area. For one reason or another, he is allowed to infect me. Now, I have to spend another 2k on it, just for me to die at some point soon in the field.
is this actually happening? It is not so easy to time your explosion to go off to infect others unless they are standing around.

I cannot infect on demand.

You can die repeatedly from the plague one after the other and stiill rez without issue./

Has any of these things happened to you because to me it sounds like a lot of hypothetical hyperbole as opposed to something that has actually happened.

have to spend 2k on it. I refuse to spend any credits on it at all.. I like exploding.. it really is not that big a deal. get plague explode rez.. carry on doing what you are doing.. I'm lvl 50 with a few million credits.. exploding really isn't that bad.

Anyway.. why not explode once and then sell the samples to pay for a bunch of vaccines

I'm quite intrigued by this now. I didnt have a chance to really play this weekend, but when I logged in Sunday evening I was greeted by a group of green, vomiting toons. I didnt put much thought into it until I started off towards my hangar and proceeded to turn green and vomit myself. At that same time I heard a public announcement about the Rakhghoul plague on Tatooine and didnt pay much attention to it until I tried to board my ship and was fired upon by containment troops, now this thing had my attention but it was time for me to go. How much longer is this going to be going on? I really want to get to Tat tonight and see what all the funs about, I'm currently lvl 38 so will any quests I get also be ~38, or is this event limited to high level players?

I already told you how to avoid it. You don't want to "hear" that. I get that you are against this but at some point you have to realise that your fears are not founded.

It is EASY to avoid being infected. In fact, you pretty much have to work at it to get infected.

Also the fleet would never left a mass to die to this. They would of entrusted higher level of security and culled you before you got near the landing docks.

This is how I see it. A game is filled with 'unavoidable' content. You have to roll with it. The way i see it OP's request is the same as me asking to remove mob agression because i want to do datacron hunting undiusturbed.

Personally i'd like it as a plague to be even more forceful, and maybe even flagging you for pvp in an infected vs non infected fashion. That would be epic. But if these rewarded 'deaths' by plague cause such an outcry i shudder at what my preferences would cause :P

this.

I was trying to get infected yesterday.. because of the way timings are done you only end up getting infected half the time.. the rest of the time you are standing around waiting for someone to explode.
