Darth Cynic says Iokath was the only they could get away fixing as no one was going there anyway. He's really quite pleased at how 4.0/5.0 has greatly multiplied his power as head of the Sith Sphere of Community Forums.

They reset with the server reset. It used to be 3 am Pacific.

The server reset will go back and forth an hour in the spring and fall as Daylight Savings stuff happens. The server cares not for sunlight and it ticks the reset at the same time, just the player's clocks will go back and forth by an hour once a year.
between 8am and 9am for me in ADT/AST so I'd say 7am and 8am EDT/EST

You may not have intended to reward this much CXP but here's why you should keep it:

Almost no one does these dailies anymore until this happened, and suddenly all of these planets are full of people actively playing the game again instead of sitting on the fleet filling chat with garbage out of boredom (because the dailies do not award enough CXP previously to make them worth the time). Seriously, these areas haven't been this active since they were launched. They were ghost towns before because they do not award enough CXP to make them worth doing... until now!

You've finally hit a number that encourages people to play your content! Why would you change that to make these areas ghost towns again?

It's late enough in the 5.0/CXP expansion that this really isn't hurting anyone. It's doing what you've been trying to do (and failing to get right) in effort to get people actively playing and leveling/gearing alts. Again, you guys don't seem to understand where the line between "worth it" and "punishing" is... and I'm telling you that nerfing these will put you back into "punishing" territory such that these activities won't be worth doing anymore.

Why would you want to do something that makes people LESS encouraged to play your content? Especially when there is precious little of it coming out, and that which is coming out is buggy, laggy, and not worth repeating on multiple characters? This IS worth repeating on multiple characters. And people are doing it. Why would you want to stop that momentum?

I can understand adjusting it down a little bit (though I think it's only HUGE because of the CXP event right now), but I don't think you should adjust it much or it will go right back to the state it was in before this happened. Why not let us have a huge CXP boost and really catch up our characters so that we can play more of the end game content?

I just don't understand why this is such a bad thing that needs to be nerfed. I'd rather see you spend your time/effort fixing the NUMEROUS bugs that are going on since 5.4 that are making the game nearly unplayable for some people (certainly unenjoyable)... not the ones that are encouraging people to actually play the game MORE.

It's backwards.

You should consider leaving it as is, or a least boosted significantly. It is bringing people out around the galaxy.

Please, oh please don't put it back. Just make the boosts not work. Or cut it in half to 500. 80 is just not enough. The daily areas are alive again.

I get the gear grind needs to be a thing, and I'm fine with one, but it currently feels soooo long. (I must point out that right now our guild could use some more members as we don't have enough to be running HM ops anymore, so I'm only speaking from the daily and occasional HMFP runner standpoint.) Especially when the gear drop rates is low. I'm at rank 300, I opened 30 crates two days in a row. I got a four 248 implant/ear, and the rest we're blue and purple of all the other gear types. Mostly prototype quality.

So getting that many crates was great because of the drop rates. In fact, it felt worth it. Otherwise it's only worth it to do the daily areas once a week when planetary missions are the GC bonus to get the weekly CXP.

I perfectly understand the fact that these missions shouldn't reward as much as or more than the bigger content (HM OPS), which is clearly what's going on. But considering the drop rates of the crates, I personally feel that there needs to be an offset of some kind. What that could be, I don't know.

I hope to see the roadmap and see what is coming up.

Rotate it. Maybe not every Heroic every day, but one bonus Heroic per day would be nice to leave it on.
