Ill start by saying 2.8 was a complete failure I've been subscribing for a year and a half now and seen nothing like it the game was unplayable for 3 days which I was paying for I think some kind of compensation for this at least for the subscribers is warranted.

As for the skill changes to benefit pvp likes of the fly by damage reduction they suffered and reducing focused defence by 200% is a joke they are affecting pve to benefit pvp. They should be reduced or deactivated only when u enter pvp like the warzone adrenals and medpacks that only activate in warzones along with the expertise rating effects u when flagged also.

Along with that we have been waiting for a long time for fresh new pve content and I think 2 new fps in over half a year is not enough when pvp are getting new warzones atc so id like see the pvp and pve content releases shared more evenly I appreciate pvp also want updates etc to, to keep them interested but neglecting one for the other is unfair and I wouldn't class a sky palace and a casino as new content either.

I'm sure other pve players and subscribers feel the same as my self so if you agree please back me and comment on this post.

tank you for your time

I agree, I play the game and am a subscriber since almost the beginning and I never, ever played PVP. I don't care about it. What I care about is PVE. AND when PVE is gimped because of PVP. Especially since I'm on a so-called (ha) PVE server. Please, be so kind and simply try to separate the two things/concepts somehow, don't change PVE gameplay because of PVP problems.
I mean I'm all up for improvements ... but that I have to relearn the use of powers / skill stuff every other month in PVE just because it seem to cause problem in PVP is a bit irritating.

|If you haven't done every single raid on nighmare 8 and 16 man, not a ton of room to talk.

I don't know that you have or haven't, but in the past 6 months they've added Nightmare both dread fortress and dread palace, which I promise you takes a lot more work than a pvp map or 2 because it has to actually be balanced and possible for the current abilities of characters in game as opposed to being another variant of king of the hill or capture the flag.

More than likely Bioware will compensate us with a day or two credit for the time lost, and even if they don't... it's FIFTY CENTS. If you are that worried about FIFTY CENTS... then you need to re-prioritize because I bet I make less money than you (unless you are a child) and I don't fret over FIFTY CENTS that I couldn't play this game for a day or two.

As for changes to PvP affecting PvE, yeah I hate that, I really do but it's something that every MMO with PvP has done, I rage about it all the time, but asking for a refund because of it? Not even I do that.

absolute its the principle of it if you bought some thing in a shop that didn't work you'd take it back and expect a refund if I am not correct and I don't like paying for some thing that doesn't work when test servers should pick this up thank you for your opinion tho

This is old hat when PVP is introduced to an MMO especially one like TOR that was NEVER supposed to have PVP to begin with. The PVP fanatics whine, whine, and whine some more that this or that is OP and makes their oh so important PVP no fun until the company caves in and gives them what they want and not for one second to they consider what these changes will do to the PVE side of the game.

NEWS FLASH!!! SWTOR wasn't intended to have PVP in the beginning those skills were made with the intent of only being use in a PVE scenario.

Maybe PVPers instead of whining your brains out to have **** changed to suit your precious pvp you should L2PB (learn to play better in case you couldn't figure it out)

thank you anaesha for your opinion I agree pve people don't normally wing on these forums about it but I think it about time we had some thing done about all these changes in favour of pvp as it becoming a joke and we need to be heard

i agree y is it pve suffer for pvp when they got there own server and there gear works in pve yet mine wont work in pvp this is one rule for one and one rule for the other it needs changing and as for changing skill moves to please pvp i think if there going to do it it should only apply in pvp not pve also
