I may be Imperial but I'm no where close to 50 right now. I just don't understand why people are freaking out so far. I thought people enjoyed playing games just for playing them. But it seems Valour is serious business. It's the path that leads to 60 valour, not reaching it that is fun.

If some people abused it, then more to them. I understand Bioware messed up with this, but honestly they are trying to improve the game. It just can't instantly be good, they still lots to learn. I'll support them until I see no results, then I'll probably unsub, but with all this promised content I'll stay around a little longer.

True, which is why today's valor gain needs to be removed from people who obtained enormous amounts of it.

But not via rollback as some clueless people are screaming here, they will have to track down exploiters with different ways.

I got on after class tonite and joined a ops since I just hit 50 today. I switched Ilum instances to match them then had to ride into the PVP area since the waypoint was gone. I rode south looking for them, first time in the area only to get a loading screen once I got there. Then I spent the next 40 minutes looking at a loading screen and "x'ing" out of game to reload to find it stuck at that loading screen listening to the battle. Finally when I reloaded for the fourth time I was in Ilum (1) and got to see myself laying dead with the medical center button.

Yeah I would say this needs a lot of work. I had been told to turn everything down on my video settings before entering and even then it was abysmal fps...and I'm well over minimum specs. How can you design a game where you can't turn down the spell/ability affects of other players to make it more manageable? Or even then, why not focus on optimizing that so if more than 20 players are in an area the game doesn't slow to a one frame per minute crawl?

2nd, yea i did wrong math there, but still it doesnt matter even if it was 100%, becouse as i said 9 hours farm is nothing in the long run.
Then you must be imperial. I tend to be one of the top people on my teams, and on MY server (all servers are not the same) i lose 3/4 matches. Granted i always do great dps and hold points well, i still only top about 7-8 medals on a good run, and it is far from constant.

Again, i think you are playing on the side that has the bias, therefor it is not as obvious to you. Oh, and i get around 500-600 valor for a loss on average, unless that has been changed as well.

Wait, Loekii the guy who trolled these forums pre-release who stated multiple times the game sucked and would fail, still bought the game, still plays the game, and still trolls the same forums.

your math is majorly flawed. the guy just made a screen of this best 1 minute valor gain. he wont make much more than 10k an hour. and anyway, people who exploited this excessively will get their valor removed anyway(or a similar measurement), according to bioware.

This man ruined one MMO's PvP and arguably the game. I don't think I'll be giving a company money who employs this guy and his design decisions. I was willing to actually until 1.1 and the notes came out. Now when my guild has TWO people logged on and we are a PvP guild after a major content patch...

I think I'll vote with my wallet thanks!

Definitely vote with your wallet. It is all they listen to.

While the patch and the design decisions are bad, their response is horrible, and then they come in and try to be dishonest about it.

I would have had some empathy, had they simply manned up to the mistake, and talked to us like customers.

If you mess up, own it, and make it right and tell me how it wont happen again.

If you ignore it, then try to be dishonest about, make a weak attempt to fix it, and fail to even say it wont happen again, then I really do not think it is worth spending my money.

You must mean that going F2P thing that killed LOTRO or DDO? Nope, it didn't either. Sorry man, I'm lost.

What I see is a company that rolled out a patch, realized the patch was a but buggy on the PVP side, and wrote a hotfix to be rolled out within 24 hours. If that's not customer service, I don't know what is. It's already been handled, either you're satisfied or you're not. Either it's a first world problem that you quit over, or you don't. But, remember, your anger and dismay is not everyone's, it only belongs to you. And, you alone (or even you and 10-12 people) aren't going to kill an MMO, even if they royally screwed this one up, which didn't happen.
Comprehension. Important. I never mentioned killing the game. I suggest you take a breather, and read posts accurately.
