If you get infected with a deadly disease, you cure yourself. It's common sense. If I am going to play an MMORPG, I am going to act as though my character is real, and so I am not going to willingly take a disease.

I also hate the plague mechanic enough that 1,000,000 credits is a an acceptable price to pay even if only in protest of it.

Just my preference.

I've been infected standing at the GTN bay. Personally I agree its fairly annoying, mostly because its unavoidable.

Won't be quitting but it is making me consider logging off until its done.

I don't give two flips about who uses it and who doesn't.

And..I've infected 4 people since yesterday, all of which were in my guild and wanted to be infected. Clearly...I'm on a rampage to destroy the game play of others.
Sorry...I should'nt have directed that at you personally as a player. But some do enjoy anoying others in game and do it on purpose. The way the event is designed, it makes it very easy to do that. And besides..I said a stim which makes you immune not for 6 hrs...but as a free one that comes in the mail.

Alot of people the stop QQING crowd specifically

sounds like the kids at playground playing dodgeball and they are the dingbat that goes and pegs some kid on the monkey bars or jungle gym and then cries to everyone when they want to punish him BUT WE (notice refering to both of them) were playing dodgeball.

Just because there is a dodgeball and a dodgeball game doesn't make it a good idea to go peg everyone near the park/playground.

Everyone on the playground shouldn't have to play dodgeball.

I am grateful that the Legacy system is in place for my Main to mail aid to my Alts. But I do wonder if the other lowbies that simply started recently had as much fun as I didn't....
the point of that post is to deal with it and make 50k credits for dying once

Agreed, and I personally think that those not visiting the forums are far less likely to enjoy the plague. Here's why:

Those who visit the forums are the more dedicated players, usually. They usually understand the game more, play the game more often, and see it through the lens of a general gaming history.

Those who are more casual players don't visit the forums most of the time, and I think it's fairly obvious that the more casual players would like this far less. To them, the world is already big enough as it is - dauntingly big - and there's enough to deal with without this being added to it.

Exactly. And why should a event make me not feel like even logging on until it is over? If these types of events are expanded on ....why would I want to continue my sub when I do not feel like logging on a lot?

Again; OK with the story, although I prefer to avoid Spacial Undead since watching 'Lifeforce'. Having a live event is fine, and could be fun.

Being forced to play someone else's Mission, storyline, etc is not.

I am here because I am at work and I cannot play at the moment, it has nothing to do with dedication, but it has a lot to do with boredom.

Then why aren't you role playing it?

Why are you letting yourself die? Would the character you are role playing as be content to suffer through the plague and explode, or who s/he seek treatment? Would the character you play listen to the warnings and instructions about the plague, or would s/he ignore them and act as a terrorist, infecting people?
