What work? The people who did actual work to get their valor are the very people who want the rollback.

And make it so your playerbase can't play which ever half that they would like when they choose? It'd be one thing if it was purely cosmetic (Lets face it, there really isnt much of a difference in class story on WOW), but in a game like this where the stories are vastly different? I would pay to see the rage then....

If they fix it, you can always resub.

If they keep giving us this 'lip service' and poor quality, you will have saved yourself spending your money rewarding their poor work.
Much like the trolls giving lip service and spreading untrue rumors or saying they are unsubbing.

Which is more legitimate? Cause apparently a player can say something and hundreds of people will believe them without trying it themself, but a developer can say the opposite and people will say "I want proof" :P

Oh wait, so now it's the individuals' fault? You may take action against individuals for playing the game the way you made it?

You're not only not accepting blame, not acknowledging the real issue and not committing to any action, you're also trying to shift blame away from yourselves and onto your player base?

Would you rather lose the bit of valor you gained so everyone else will be evened out and on the same general field, or put up with even more faction imbalance and people leaving the game?

A large part of the anger behind the patch was due to the disparity in PvP between the two factions already (with one side being MUCH easier to gain PvP gear than the other) due to one faction outnumbering the other immensely, which the patch was supposedly going to address but actually did the opposite.

Is there going to be any rollback or someway to compensate for the valor gained by the Imperials from today? I know of atleast one character that purposely sat and respawned to give everyone camping as many points as possible. I've already suffered weeks of PvP against fully geared Sith as a level 30-40+ only to hit 50 recently and still suffer with no PvP gear vs fully geared Sith (except now with no lowbies to pick on). There have been many suggestions on how to fix the problem, but when you only win 10% in solo queue and don't have the time to complete dailies while equally ungeared characters can win 3 straight without doing anything on the other side, it makes dailies pointless as well. I understand time invested should be rewarded, but with the current way things are going, Republic PvP on my server will be dead within weeks. I know the "statistics" released showed approximately even scoring wins/loss between the factions overall, but unless you address the disparity within each server, most of this gaming community will just quit.

The problem is there is a lack of dialogue with the devs on whether they are even addressing this issue (or even see it as one) which leaves most of the community fuming and even angrier when bugs like this patch come to fruition. Please build up a better rapport within the community or I'm afraid this community may bail from this game faster than APB sank.
Because 12 hours ago it was 8:35 am.

Not to mention they also appear to be lying about their 'design'.

Why do you design in Turrets to fire at enemy players, when enemy players are supposed to instantly die?????

So wait... there's a major exploit with one of the currencies in game (valour)... and you're just going to ignore it... for 24 hours?

At least turn off valour per kill.... say 8 hours ago, or cap the total valour earned from Ilum at 30x200 = 6000 for today (or something a bit higher even). It's a tricky database operation, but it needs to happen, people should not be exploiting there way through 20 or 30 pvp levels. Or exploiting their way through anything.
