Weak response to a big cluster****. I managed to cancel my sub today before the autorenew tommorow. I'm taking some time out to let this settle and observe how BW deal with this before I put any more time into this game.

It had its connection issues but actual gameplay was never broken hardcore. You must be confusing it with ****** COD.
Point made.... figure it out and your iq will increase.

Oh and enjoy your pandas and wow-kemon.
I don't play WoW. Haven't in almost 4 years, and won't be starting again.

But that's okay, you can be an arse all day long.

Will you please just close down Ilum and rollback Valor? Jeez 90% of the community agrees that it will be good for the game. LISTEN TO YOUR SOURCE OF INCOME THIS ONCE.

Stop going to illum and having a blast doing some world pvp instead of complaining, really, this is the most fun I've had in world PVP since vanilla wow!

SWTOR ROX!! This is the game we've all been waiting for. You people all know it is too, you are NOT going to quit your subs! its a manipulation and we all know its what spoiled children do when they want something done their way.
I pledge myself to your teachings. To the ways of the Sith.

Was this issue not identified during the additional "testing".

BioWare froze up. Completely unprofessional. They saw an obvious exploit, taking place en masse across every server (they were obviously monitoring things closely on a patch day) and did absolutely nothing about it for hours and hours, until it was too late for them to easily shut down and reset the servers.

This is quite possibly the worst response to a game breaking exploit I have ever seen. BioWare sat and watched as hundreds of Republic players were spawn camped with no way out (unless they were lucky enough to queue for a warzone, then get AFK booted back to the fleet) and did.. nothing. FOR HOURS. That's simply inexcusable, to allow one whole faction of each server (be it Empire or Republic, though we know it was mostly Republic) of your player base to be exploited repeatedly for hours on end, while the other faction obtains far too much PvP experience for their efforts... and doing nothing about it.

That's nothing short of disgraceful, BioWare. I've been disappointed in BioWare before plenty of times, but I've never been angry with them before today. This was shameful to an extreme.

Remember, if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

All they could do once trapped there was log out and not play that character until it gets fixed.
You can't use fleet pass or quick travel cause of the debuff and they couldn't reach the speeder guy.

Simple and swift solution to all of this. Ban/suspend anyone with a large influx in valor level because I mean they did technically break the rules right?

Or just do a rollback.. two reasonable options!

Give everyone max Valor Rank and a full set of gear....level playing field. No need to farm for anything and you can just enjoy playing the game. Except for Illum, that needs to be closed until its good for something.
