This XP boost is not needed for a lot of people. I dare say it is going to turn me off resubscribing again (which I considered doing). I only lvl in pvp and enjoy playing all brackets, I'm currently lvling up about 20 Alts. When you add boosted XP I have to stop playing them or I can max them out in a few days.
With the way gearing is and will be till about April, the only saving grace for me to not worry about RNG gearing is pre70 pvp. It's the only reason I was going to resub (which runs out 5th Feb). If you add this 250% XP you will remove the last bastion of enjoyable pvp for myself and many others..
For us pvp should be skill vs skill and at the moment it's gear vs gear.

Please give us the option to turn off the 250% XP boost.

Help me Eric, you're my only hope 🙏
It said so here: http://www.swtor.com/info/in-game-events

It clearly stated XP and CXP. We all know Bioware won't include an option to turn of the additional XP, they will just take it away. But since you're nothing but a troll, I suppose that is what you want. If you really don't like it, just don't level during the event.

What I'd like to see to see is two-fold:
1. A slider that lets you set the base xp gain from 0 to 100%.
2. A checkbox to disable XP bonuses, like the event and guild ones.
Great suggestion!
This would be the perfect solution. No need for Acute modules or consumables, or whatever other band-aids. This would fix the problem once and for all.

I will let you know once I know more.

That would be great, here's hoping!

If there were lots of pvp brackets, I think it would be fine to turn "gained xp" to 0 if you wanted to, so that there wasn't a big difference between 2 people in a pvp match. But as it is now, it'd be too easy to abuse, people would just level to 39 or 69, and hang around trolling midbies and lowbies forever.

Some try to mix the no xp gain with no xp BOOST gain. This thread is about no BOOST, so players still gain experience but without the "events" boost, and it is fair to ask for it. Asking for 0 xp gain is a troll thing to deviate the debate and bad for this discussion.

They're the same thing, pretty much. Currently, even without the boost, xp gain is incredibly fast. To the point that, even without the bonus, if you just do story and the H2s (for gear), you'll out-level the content with ease. Sure, the bonus makes it worse, but the removal of it doesn't solve the root problem, just one symptom of it. If the devs are going to address the issue, they're better off implementing something that fixes the why people post, rather than the what they post.

In this case, that would be giving people both the means to turn off the boosts and some level of control over how fast they level regardless.

I can see them adding turning off XP bonus like before but fully disabling XP or a slider probably not.

Reason is that there is no PvP brackets. Everyone regardless of level is thrown into the same match just that stats are scale up to max level at 232 rating as it sits now.

If there was brackets such as 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, etc I could see why turning off would be helpful if you want to stay in that specific bracket but due to the scale up doesn't make it fesible.

If they added that I would want them to remove the scale up and create brackets but that would further minimize available players on lower population servers

Eric,
This thread was about having AN OPTION for turning off the XP bonus. I think it's a silly idea, but options are always nice. However, if you turn around and turn off the XP bonus at this point, you will be ticking off an order of magnitude more people who want to level their 60's and 65's to 70 during this event. You promised that, you delivered that, now stick to it. if you want to incorporate AN OPTION, then fine.
