It should be.
However, some cannot maintain personal discipline to adapt or enjoy it. Its food for story and rp if they will take advantage of it.

Same here, one of my favorite past times at work is to feed the trolls

The galaxy is a dangerous place. I very much like this event and hopefully it will be around for a couple of weeks at least.

Of course you will never please everyone with this, rest assured it's temporary.

The fact that you're interested in playing enough to be satisfying your desire for the game through the forum indicates you are not a casual player.

Ive read quite a few "this event blows" threads, but what I have noticed in each of them is that the only reason people give for not liking it is....well I haven't found someone who didn't like it that actually had a reason that wasn't solved by using the Vaccine or avoiding fleet/tatooine altogether.

Personally the only thing I don't like about the event? See below:

Quote:
This is a 1 minute sample of General chat on Tatooine the day the event hit.
[1. General] RandomNub: Where do I go to start the event?
[1. General] RandomNub2: fleet - vip section
[1. General] RandomNub89: Northeast corner of dune sea
[1. General] RandomNub45: Where can I find the ship?
[1. General] RandomNub119: Scroll up idiot, RandomNub89 JUST said it.
[1. General] RandomNub42: Where can I sell dna?
[1. General] RandomNub89: Jawa trader
[1. General] RandomNub34: WTS [Rakghoul Vaccine] 10k each
[1. General] RandomNub42: Where can I find the Jawa Trader
[1. General] RandomNub89: Open your map and select show vendors then look to the north in dune sea, he is the one all the way to the north
[1. General] RandomNub42: in the pvp area? thats syupid
[1. General] RandomNub89: ./facepalm
[1. General] RandomNub22: Anyone on the shaman?
[1. General] RandomNub37: If I was I wouldn't be telling you
[1. General] RandomNub56: what is it, after you hit 50 you just turn into a total douche and start stealing peoples kills?
[1. General] RandomNub32: Pretty much.
[1. General] RandomNub42: It's not possible to steal a kill once you tag the mob.
[1. General] RandomNub45: I found the ship now what?
[1. General] RandomNub22: You weren't so shy last night when we did Pound of Flesh together now were you?
[1. General] RandomNub37: dear god man, that was supposed to be a secret!
[1. General] RandomNub56: if I am running towards a mob and a 50 finishes his then sees mine and uses a speed boost to beat me that's kill stealing.
[1. General] RandomNub32: Thats not kill stealing thats just what you call being a total **** head.
[1. General] RandomNub45: I found the ship now what?
[1. General] RandomNub90: Where do I go to start the event?
Tatooine chat is filled with people asking what to do or complaining about being ganked or having their kills stolen. This is the only thing I really can't stand about this event - but I am stuck here until I can finish my class quest - But just like the Vaccine there is a way for me to avoid it. Just leave general chat.

And I choose to avoid the Plague, perks, and storyline. Thanks!

My complaint is not with the event, but the Griefing that occurs because of it.

I did not say that. You complained about having to spend 30k on vaccines. I pointed out you WOULD make money by blowing up and selling DNA.

This is my point. Your reasons for not wanting to take part in this are moot by your statements, which you continue to reiterate and trip over.

You are in fact trolling. (it is my time to assume)

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?
Lol! really good points. So..someone wants to roleplay exploding and dying a lot? I mean...are they role playing a totally dumb char?
Trust is something which is earned.

Any in game mechanic can be manipulated to annoy others.
Emotes....dances....yells....AOE's that work without an enemy target. You can annoy people with all of those.
So should all of those be removed as well?
Sure, some people just enjoy being a pain. You ignore them.

BioWare gave people an out. Yes, it costs money. But it's there for anyone who wants to use it. How many people play for 6 hours or more at a time?
If they gave a free stim that didn't last through death, people would complain about that too.
They can't win.
