Thanks for participating!
So the next event will use the same tokens?

Given the length of time between these events and the relatively short amount of time they are on to be around for one and then find that it offers nothing but some companion gear that is no better than what can be got from running a few daily heroic missions and modding up yourself this seems like an odd choice and also an odd response.

Given my character didn't speak once during the event and there was pretty much no interaction story isn't really a big thing, chasing boxes or clicking on a terminal or two in a rush to get the credit somewhat lacking and then to have nothing worth purchasing? After all this wait for content this doesn't seem to be worth the wait.

Because level 26 toons would not be able to use such a speeder, but they can get the comms.

How dare you display such an adult, mature and considered attitude.

You are suppossed to be crying and whining and claiming that BW have done this to peronsally "slap you in the face" or some other such nonsense

My only toon that can directly benefit from this event is a very low level Op...I have a BH so might transfer a couple of barrels to him....otherwise I enjoyed the event (a few minor bugs / frustrations aside) even though the rewards are not set up to benefit me directly.

To all you whiners from the COD / Reward me for turning up generation, just enjoy the mini quests, enjoy the event, have a coke and a smile...participation in any kind of event / hobby does not equal automatic acquisition of every single thing every single time....as long as the next event rewards other classes with weapons you have NOTHNG to complain about. Can't you just do things for the enjoyment and/or the completionist factor any more? Do you have to be spoon fed rewards for participating in anything?

The sheer level of "me me me me me me me me me me me" and "My demands are more important than anyone else's" and "No one can have anything that I CAN'T HAVE otherwise its FAIL" is far more disgusting than the rewards selection or poor quest implementation.

2nd, MONTHS ago the quest rewards were data mined and posted on these very forums players gave feedback that said "I hope there are rewards for other classes"
It would have been nice if you guys had read that thread and added rewards for ALL CLASSES!
quoted for truth. i know i cant be alone in this but im getting really sick of the attitude BW/EA have that they know what we want. its getting more and more obvious they dont have the slightest clue and dont even bother reading feedback given 90% of the time. as someone said earlier, great move just before GW2 comes out.

i dont have a signle character that can use these weapons, non of the 7 characters i have would look good in a sand people outfit, would need to grind about 150 smuggler crates per character for the pet (not that i plan to), and only 2 of my characters can use the speeder but having the CE i already have a speeder, and the CE one doesnt look like its been through a destruction derby.

i demand the head of the dev that made these decisions!

they either need to start listening to the small playerbase they have left or they are gonna drive us all away.

Really? You really "demand the head of the dev that made these decisions"?

So you wish someone somewhere gets the sack and potentially loses their home / livliehood / marriage etc because a live event in a video game was not specifically designed around your personal wants?

GG.

You do realise GW2 is gonna suck right? I mean, you must already know that the game is just a mediocre rehash of popular game mechanics from WAR et al with some cartoony PvP and and a renamed trinity??

Its also arguably more entrenched in the F2P / P2W model than TOR will be...

Give it 3 months and you will be proclaiming it "FAIL" because it does not cater your every demand and personal vision for the game....still at least I know you will surely enjoy such misery

Or thanks for NOT participating.

Good job making events like this worthless to the majority of the game population. It's a GREAT way to keep your subscribers happy.

Just par for the course around here, it's why this game is being forced into F2P. Bad decision after bad decision.

someone expecting rewards from an event is hardly in the "reward me for turning up generation" EVERYONE is paying the the same sub, and EVERYONE had to wait months for the event, and to come out of it with nothing for your main character is a slap in the face for anyone not currently playing an Agent or Vanguard.

and i havnt heard/seen anyone demanding "automatic acquisition" of anything, and funny how you compair it to a hobby so your saying if i built a model car, and there were pieces missing i would not have a right to be upset?

and yea the next event may very well have other types of weapons, but to say the players have nothing to compain about is narrow minded at best, was it not BW that said each event will work similar to the first one, so was it much of a streach for ppl to think it would offer something for everyone? i dont think so.

cant you just let ppl voice thier opinion without berating them?

GW2 PvP can't POSSIBLY be worse then this. I log in, I grind the same 4 warzones for 2 maybe 3 hours, I get about 1000 warzone comms and my daily, which gives me about 400-450 ranked comms a night after conversion. and an entire set of war hero gear costs what, 25k of these ranked tokens.

But wait! Ranked warzones! Yay! Except I can't queue for them. 8 people or nothing. I joined guild after guild looking for ranked teams, and you know what I found? Multiple guilds with rapidly dwindling populations that can no longer do ranked (or, conversely, they do ranked, but they are virtually all badly undergeared - defeating the fun in doing ranked) . Over and over again on Fatman.

More terrible implementation from this C grade dev staff with F grade management. it's why I'm now scaling back my gameplay and unsubbing once this month is over.
It's not that I think GW2 is going to be amazing. I don't. I'm just sick of the terrible PvP situation here.

Besides, TOR is nothing more then a Star Wars themed mediocre rehash of WoW, without most of the features WoW has, so...
