Let's address the bantha in the room shall we? This year will probably have less new content than last year. So, just turn all (most) of the content on and leave it on.

Double Double: what does it matter at this point if you leave it on forever now? People will still level alts.
Bounty Week: the traffic is mostly in the bazaar. Not many do it anyway except that first Tuesday....
Gree Event: One of my favorites. Traffic is on Ilum in its own area. Not many do it anymore. The guilds can manage their own participation accordingly.
Nar Shadaa Night Life: Has its own casino area. Chat would die down after the first few weeks. Be kinda cool to have quests that go through there and real people are playing.

Rakghoul Event: This one you probably need to rotate like it is. Too many players would freak about the plague.
Life Day Event: see Rakghoul above but replace plague with snowballs.

What do you guys think? I just don't see that it matters much anymore.

That would work. Makes the Most of what we do have already, until the content stars again.

Other than Rakghoul, that works for me. If that event didn't run ever again it'd be too soon.

I was definitely thinking this last week about the double "event"

It would be great if it was on all the time, but I'll bet they notice an uptick in players during the event, and if it was on all the time, that uptick would likely die down and then they'd have NOTHING to get another uptick going except to increase the size. 3x, 4x, 12x. After each event everyone would complain that "THIS is how it should be ALL the time!!!!" and on and on. No one would ever be satisfied once they got used to that level.

But yeah, I pretty much agree, if there is no plan for anything else exciting going forward, why not?

Let's add public Strongholds to this list. Leave them on at all times. Sure every one would be silly. Let's say, only subs, 100% and minimum 400k prestige, or something like that.

Having everything or mostly everything on at once might make for a bit of chaos, but I think people would get used to it eventually. I'd be for it.

Rakghoul plague would be good if it was limited to a definable area, like the tunnels, and the sickness buff fell off if you left the zone just like the GSI buff drops if you leave Makeb. That way I might finally get around to getting Lokin. Never bothered.

On the other hand.... our character uncontrollably vomiting while simultaneously being pelted with snowballs might be fun.

...I was actually watching for the last Rakghoul event, because I don't have Lokin on some of my characters. I, uhm, didn't do it. Because... I'm having some serious "don't really care" issues when it comes to SWTOR lately. The complete sham that was the last Companion Reunion(s) showed me how little gas is less in the SWTOR tank.

I would, actually, enjoy having longer access to the various events. I never got into Gree events, because there's a lot of PvP (which I don't like) but, I'd do more Bounties, or more Nightlife, if those were on. Maybe bring back the full spectrum of events, run them 2 weeks, and overlap them.

Double XP is their alternative to in game events.

If it was on all the time then there would be no option to include it in the update highlights, which might make them seem a little light. Plus I think what people mean is double CXP, your pretty much level synced back down to planetary max by the time you leave the fleet and it seems a little pointless to rush through the base game just to reach the little content produced in 2017 and be bored.

So while I agree that CXP should be halved or the rewards doubled they could have done that at any point but as its the 'end game' experience halving it would half the amount of end game content.

While the other events could run full time, should they do that then they wouldn't be able to be twitted about to break up the CM sale posts.
