Ilum Heroic Zones

I don't know... I just can't bring myself to call that PvP in any form. It doesn't matter what kind of gear you have, when you have some random player (and even 49's can survive long enough to do this) grappling you into additional groups of elite NPC's or running through them while you kill them, thus aggro'ing them, or any of the other tactics in the heroic zones, there's no fighting back. In my mind, PvP is something where you can fight back. It's players vs player, whether a 19 v 1 or a 1 v 1, not player vs player with a bunch of elites. It doesn't really matter how many players you get to help, those NPC's are infinitely spawning, yes with a timer, and you will eventually get overrun. When there's a bunch of players, you can fight back with enough fire power... I don't know, maybe I'm wrong. I just think it's silly and cowardly, hiding behind elites and trash talking when your target gets obliterated in 4 seconds flat.

The reason people like myself are there is because thats where we find you :/as if we are going to just happen upon you in an open random area. But i can completely agree with camping amongst champion and elite NPCs and just pulling them and running away being a spineless tactic. Me i use these areas as checkpoints for a planet wide patrol and if im beaten i take it and respawn because it is a game and meant to be fun for everyone if i fail then awesome i will just come back and harass you again and again but look at it this way, the daily missions on ilum are worth 10K creds TEN THOUSAND! all of that just for going round stomping nerf-zurgs? nah its hazzard pay for doing you're missions in enemy PLAYER territory. If you dont like this then there are PvE servers for you. If i can can get in and out with my objectives done despite gank-campers playing a Merc, you can to.

Don't get me wrong, I love pvp. My main is a derp-smash conqueror guardian. I don't worry so much when I'm on him. But I just hit 50 on my powertech and there's two players in particular that only log on to sit in that heroic zone on the sith side and camp. That's literally all they do for hours upon hours, at least 15 hours each day. They don't queue for warzones, they don't do anything else. But I love some good pvp, my guild goes to places like Voss and the black hole sector and such to just start crap. I in no way dislike pvp or pvp realms. I dislike cowards and *** holes.
