Please change the spawn mechanics on henchmen/kingpins to prevent interference from other players ruining your kill/capture choice simply because they are too impatient to wait until you are done before spawning theirs. The spawned mob should be locked to the spawning group or the encounter moved into an instance.

This is really ruining my enjoyment of this event. No they are not 'helping' me - they just want their own mission to be done. For me the game is about the journey not the destination so when you mess up my fight you mess up my game.

Actually, I'm wondering if it might have to do with the scheduled, regular nature of the event. Any event-exclusive items would quickly lose their "unique" quality (in quotes because nothing is truly unique, of course). Perhaps if there was a token, it'd be something based on heroics or boss fights, like the Gree shards, to limit how many you could accumulate in a single event, but at the moment, there aren't any heroics or world/ops bosses, so...

Perhaps that'll change in the future -- something like an H4 instance full of criminal scum could be fun

I'm really enjoying this event so far. One question how does it decide who you face? I faced Zinda Kent (sniper always on a ledge or cliff) 3 times today, on three different planets (alderaan, nar shadaa, and coruscant) with three different characters (JK, IA, SW). As much fun as it is killing her, I want to kill someone new.

@sanders, I think its random. I face the same henchman sometimes in different planets. King pins I'm not sure.

I really enjoy this event, but BW need to address the new lvl 27 restriction problems.

The achievements not cannot be completed unless you have a lvl 27 and under alt on both factions. A lot of players don't and requiring us to roll a new character and level them to 15 just so we can get one kingpin contract unlocked seems a bit unfair. Not to mention the people who had the contracts unlocked on Ord Mantell and Hutta and have now lost them.

I know you wanted to thin out the crowds, but you could have done that by limiting the bounties available on those planets or reducing the number of players per instance during the event on those planets.

Alternatively, just removed those planets from the achievements please.

It's a random choice, but there are only a few choices per planet. Dulfy explains it here. But, for example, Zinda Kent is on Dromund Kaas/Coruscant, Nar Shaddaa, Tatooine, Alderaan.

So let me get this figured out hear, I unlocked the kingpin for Hutta last Bounty week and had it for the rest of the days that the event was going on into this one. I unlock the next kingpin on Dromand Kass but only get to do it once, so how in the hell were others able to finish the hole event in one bloody week. I don't get it, or did I eff it up by choosing the bounty on Dromand Kass and the kingpin at the same time for one day? I need some answers hear, felling confused.

I love this event! Each class should have their own event in the future imo.
