This should be the warning post players get before they get to add anything to these forums.

What sucked the most was when I had subscribed for a 6 month block and then had double xp weekends arrive. Customer service wasn't even able to cancel my account early. I did not care about the lost money. I just didn't want to be subscribed during double xp. I felt like I had wasted my money.

In short, I want to play during double xp weekends with the option to get not get any bonus xp from anything. I do not like being forced to participate in double xp weekends. I feel like no one listens though.
That's because you are the only one I have ever seen with this issue.

Nothing, In fact this x-pac gives me hope for an update of the PvE Space Combat. As someone who rarely PVPs due to an imbalance of both gear and experience this will give me a chance to PVP in a setting where most people are starting off on relatively equal footing (for subscribers atleast).


EDIT

What can we expect in terms of updating the crafting system? My main is at 450 Artifice and it seems to me that crafting is a waste of time unless you take BioChem. Not too mention with the release of all the unique looking crystals on the Cartel Market, the main attraction for Artifice is gone. As well the second best part of artifice was never the hilt but the relics you could craft. I was sad to see that we had not been given an updated relic to craft.

As Thanksgiving Season approaches, you are at the top of our list of things we are thankful for. We receive a lot of support from you, the players, and its really because of you that we are able to continue development on this game we love so much. Wed like to show a tiny measure of that thanks with a Double XP weekend starting November 27th and continuing through Thanksgiving Weekend until December 2nd.
Any chance you're still planning these, not seen a sign of them and it'd be a nice excuse to start a new character or pick up on an old one for some people.
Never saw that second part of subscriber appreciation we were supposed to get Fall 2013, he said we'd feel appreciated.
That can't have been the case as I can't even recall getting the CC part of it (which doesn't really help with that anyway).

Nope, they definitely canceled something they deliberately planned. I am so sorry that they have to re-confirm everything they say each week just so you can sleep well.

It will be as they say, until they say differently. When has that ever not been the case?

Oh that's cool, double xp right after the name purge sweet.
Isn't it pointless though, isn't double xp the same thing us subs get in rest xp.

Rest XP only applies to kills. Any other form of acquiring XP is, to the best of my knowledge, completely unaffected by rest XP... whereas Double XP disables Rest XP but simply doubles everything. It's a big deal, trust me... when you turn in the imperial H4 for Makeb and get over 100,000 XP... yeah, it's worth it.

Allow me to make it even more clear: I've seen people go from level 1 to level 45 over the course of a Double XP weekend, and have confirmed they did so without cheating or botting anything.

It's that big a difference, because it STACKS with your Character Perks and XP consumable buffs.
