This isn't ahard fix. All data is probably stored on SQL databases. Just restore the DB's to a previous state and change Ilum abck to how it was and work on a new solution. IE problem fixed.

I agree,..

now let me share an old meme I made which may be relevant,..

MMO warning,..

I AM enjoying the game still, haven't even seen Ilum yet,..
That said,...this could very well be another NGE fiasco that will cause more damage than deserved.

So a patch created issues in PvP? OMG THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN AN MMO BEFORE!!!!!!

Odds are they're scrambling to find a way to fix it, I'll bet the servers are down at some point in the next week with a fix.

Sub cancelled

Had faith in BW a few weeks ago, but have gotten more and more bitter as time goes on.

I just tried it with a group. We killed them WITH control of ilum and WITHOUT. Both failed.

WE DID however get 400+ legacy points. That is all.

It's too late.

They gave it.

Definitely I farmed valor against lowbies considering I started pvping during early release at lvl 15 and pvped until i got 50. I've been stalwart in my support of brackets. If you think mmo pvp is hardcore, you are foolish. I've been playing Dota for 10 years, nowhere in my post did i say "I'm a hardcore swtor pvper." You are more than a little derpy if you think spawn camping = playing warzones. I've been 50 now for awhile and can say that republic consistently gets **** on in warzones due to no brackets - so If you think i farmed lowbies for my valor over the past month - you are foolish. Good day

Now post othe one of them killing the TURRET and getting valor from killing the TURRET.
hmm using your ABC block text again? its really not accomplishing anything but making u look illiterate

"most games fail these days because they are theme parks. tps have no depth. you play through the story and you are done. though swg had no quests strangely enough in 2-3 years i never had nothing to do. sandboxes are real mmos. "

I try and avoid posting on the forums, but this simply amazes me how quick people are to want stuff now. Fixes take time, roll backs take time, every meaningful change, and redo on this level will take time.

Besides this is hardly the first time an MMO has given out gears for free.

Before i stopped playing that "other game" the LoL barad (Tol barad) win gave out **** tons of honor and it took them a few days up to a week to fix it, meanwhile everyone and their mother was on the bridge, under it, and watching that timer to queue for it so that they could get the massive amounts of honor.

People were upset of course, but a normal person was just fine.

Plus I think the valor gains are being exaggerated a bit, sure you may get that one person that sits there all day aoe spamming with range attacks, melee got shafted with this bug as usual, that gets to valor so go ahead roll back idc. Just make sure i get to keep the gear item i got today for turning in the daily that took me an hour to do.

TL;DR: it will be fixed, probable roll back, if not its not the end of the world, people exaggerate /troll for funsies. fix incoming.

im at work, and am seeing this. if it is this bad and get's hotfixed i will unsub.

i strictly pvp completely, if there is no rollback and people get to take advantage of an exploit YET AGAIN without being penalized that will be the final straw.

if they simply hotfix this and the people farming this retain that valor it's not fair to those who legitimately leveld up the hard grind of 55+ valor ranking.

very dissapointed if there is no rollback and will not resub if there is no rollback.
