Cue.. seriously... Cue is the the stick you hit balls with on the 8 ball table.

Queue is the word your looking for genius.

Wanna know why nobody rolls Republic that's serious about pvp? Because you guys have been whining nonstop since long before the game even came out. "Everyone, everyone! Listen, listen! Republic SUCKS in this game so much and nobody GOOD every joins our side and the quests SUCK and we SUCK at pvp and being Republic is the WORST thing ever!!! btw- why does nobody rolls republic? Maybe BW should do a better job of making us look good."
While I don't totally disagree, I don't totally agree either.

Fact is that BW put more time and effort into the Sith side and created a more appealing faction for the peeps that want to be the cool bad guy. I for one still think, based on some experience, that professiosns across factions are not truly balanced behind the scnenes. Something that BW will never admit that they have done simply to appeal to the majority of players that pay to play.

While I agree more PVP'ers go Sith, by strict percentage by faction, I think there are the same amount of good players. IE, if 25% of the sith are good PVP'ers, republic would be about the same. Challenge being that there are in fact more Sith.

The real issue is that BW made a factoin based game with faction locked toons. Stupid misstake number one in their game design. BW needs to provide a way for people to switch from Sith to Republic and provide incentive to do so. This would allow the community to balance itself out.

Based on how Ilum is currently instancing I could see a situation where most of the instances would be balanced and those that aren't the imps could sit around on their thumbs.

Bottom line is that this is supposed to be a faction based game with faction based OW-PVP. Either BW delivers on this feature or they should declare defeat and admit they have failed.

Some people just do not get the fact that others do not like PVP and dislike when they have to engage in it just to finish a storyline, especially when it is the only way SWTOR made to get certain items/rewards.

The people that do not or cannot understand this are too narrow-minded and inconsiderate of others.

If you think that people that do not like PVP are "cry babies", then I suggest you take a dose of maturity and think about what you said.

If this hurts your feelings/pride, then tough. As I said, take a dose of maturity.

Good thing you don't have to do the dailies then- they give a total of 550 rep a day- you can max rep, with a single character, in 5-6 days even if you don't do a single pvp daily.

So- if someone needs to be open minded, perhaps it's the people who are whining about pvp dailies they do not have to do, the only two open world pvp dailies right now.

Read it again, Einstein.

PS: I never said that I did not like PVP.

Yes you can get max rep that is correct, however max rep is only 12k, you need something like 57k to get to legend.... The event only lasts two weeks, so you would be just getting to friend most likely by the end of the event, which means you cant buy much.

Let me preface my comments by pointing out that my post is regarding the PVP aspects of the 1.7 event. Also I want to acknowledge that the event as a whole was much better than some previous attempts, and I did enjoy the event.

Many people have good points about the PVP aspect and the Gree event. Anthough we each play how we play, IMHO it all comes down to Bioware. People complained about truces, when the fact is that it is un-avoidable as it is. OKAY people, Lore check, it's Star WARS, therefore PVP is about WAR not fetching and food pellet games. The fact that BW would be so blind to this is amazing. Sure put a reward system into an area where sworn enemies would be more interested in killing each other, that will work.

Look, Bioware, If there is any chance that you are monitoring, get this through your collective skull. If you want real open world PVP, if you really want to earn the respect of the PVP base that is out there, then you have to deliver the product you are promising. What just happened in this event is not the future of PVP. I had more PVP fun back in Unreal Tournament and that was in 1999! Hire a military advisor if you have to, but please put some WAR back in Star WARS. It's do-able, If you want it to be Bioware.

Right. It is not like the gree event is undoable if you stick to the PvE quests. You can still cap out your reputation, fight the Xeno boss et cetera. The PvP missions are purely optional.

Mr. Hat says "BW support is the best"!
I am a bad player, so what?
