I agree heartily -- please keep this in place till 2.2 launches, that way those of us who missed it earlier can get some nice toys too.

If I go all-out this week with my 4 characters at 50+, I can probably "store up" enough reputation to have enough reputation saved up to hit Champion in 3 weeks, but bleh, it really shouldn't be necessary.

As to why this event returns while the Chevin scavenger hunt and the Rakghoul event haven't, this one actually has an in-game reason for returning but the others don't. The Cheving thing in particular was supposed to be a prelude to the Return of the Gree anyway, and they are now here -- as per the Terror from Beyond operation. (IMO, It probably wouldn't hurt to see a Gree-themed Flashpoint in addition to that).

I know these events must take a lot of planning and implementation work, so that one-off events will probably not be part of the business model from now on, but please don't abandon them!

I completely missed the first Gree event. After looking at how many components you can get. I have to do everything, the heroic every day and do Xeno on both Sm and HM just to get enough to buy one weapon.

So pleased the Gree event has returned ... My Main's been stuck on the fleet crafting to make up for the cash she spent getting a makeover.

To battle!
. Shine on, you crazy pixel.

Funny post! The nine circles of SW:TOR PvP hell

Its stupid to tell you to come at lvl 45 when all the events are RED and impossible at that lvl.

Yeh this

I wasn't able to join the first gree event and was so bummed about it, as I loved the look of the new armors. When I saw that the event was returning I was so exited, only to log in and find out I wouldn't be able to get friend standing in 7 days.

Meh.

I understand the disapointment of some with recycling a former event. I, however, am VERY glad the GREE event has returned. I started shortly before the Gree event started & wasnt able to take part in it. Now I'm lvl 45 (bottom tier I know) & will be able to actually do some of these event missions.

Now you're bringing it back again.

Why not bring back all the rewards from the other events that everybody missed?

Nobody is going to feel unique now. Same thing with the white colour crystal...

It doesnt mean anything to have anything in game anymore.
Awww. Is this little snowflaking feeling a bit too similar to the other little snowflakes?
That which does not kill you merely postpones the inevitable.

I suppose the best way to handle it is partner up w/ a couple higher lvl guildies/friends & take on the missions.

Complaining about revisiting Gree yields no bounty. Some of us really do want to level up our Gree reputation. Thank you for making that possible. When this game started, the community was friendly. Gen chat had more to offer than mom jokes. What have you given to the game, lately?
My money...and expect better return.

We just had the 2.1 update, and 2.2. is billed for early June, and people are ************ that this is happening instead of new content. It isn't. It's happening (yes, again) in addition to new content, following the usual new content schedule.

The sense of entitlement people have for paying $15 a month (presuming all of the whiners are subs- which I doubt) is quite astounding.

It's perfectly acceptable to complain, but try to use an iota of reason when you do so. Grossly unrealistic expectations don't help anyone.

$15 doesn't buy lunch where I live. Get real.
$15 x 1 Million + buys new content where I live (realistic).
