It would be nice to fix the bucketloads of outstanding bugs, some of which have been around since 1.4 or earlier, before releasing new content which creates even more bugs. Besides the many known issues, there are many that you either have not acknowledged or are unaware of:

Will we get the usual notification when this hits the PTS?
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!

I wonder if the Galactic Reputation System will be retroactive

Unlikely. As far as I know, Legacy wasn't so it makes sense that this would fall in the same category, but I would love for BioWare to prove me wrong on this. I have so many alts...

That is what I was wondering as well.

It might be that only repeatable quests raise your standing.

I'm pretty excited for this stuff tbh, more 'things to do' at 50 - and with faction rep rewards..should be good.

So, let me get this straight: Your answer to requests for more robust open-world PvP and more dynamic events is to attempt to force people to go to the Western Shelf of Ium so the PvE crowd who wants to do the event can get endlessly ganked by the PvP set who would otherwise continue to ignore the place? Because the ganking in the Rakghoul plague went over so well...

Unless the rewards are all PvP-oriented, this is a fail from my perspective. I absolutely do not want to be forced to PvP. While I can't imagine why ganking is so amusing to the PvPers who do it, it's not at all amusing to me. If, however, this is meant to be a PvP-only event, I can just skip it.

I assume that the Gree thing is going to be part of the much-talked about "Ilum revamp".

To my knowledge, Bioware's never said it was going to be a PvP revamp. I expect all PvP stuff on the western half of Ilum will just be removed outright.

Looking forward to this event, had so much fun with the open world PvP during the Rakghoul event, hope this will have the same vibe. But I guess this will be then just for level 50 chacaters? I mean plenty of the F2P members might have a character of that level yet and that would exclude them somehow (even more than the lock on event gear would do).

Anyway, also I like that we get a reputation system. Would like to see a new daily quest chain on Voss, not just the heroics that are already there to do for the reputation. Also will it be possible to get reputation by doing warzones (I mean we never got social points for doing that, so how about some reputation points, maybe per MVP).
