BioWare, when will you be rolling back all characters/all servers?

This is a when, not an if, because people got valor rank 100 in a few minutes with this patch thanks to the Turret Exploit. Something THAT dramatic will cause a rollback, 100% guaranteed.

So, my question is WHEN will the rollback be? Because I don't want to play until I know when the rollback will be (wasted time, basically).

imps are getting 100+ valor points per kill as they are able to control Illum and smear us reps at every turn.

Its already happened, all you do is afk in Ilum near the base while people kill the Turrets, which are currently bugged and giving 100s of valor per kill, respawn instantly, and have no diminishing returns.

How is that rock you were under all day?

Zerg camp the republic spawn point and kill the turrets over and over again.

According to chat and some posts apparently people are getting 1000 valor every 2-3 minutes from kill trading and ganking guildies lowbie alts in illum and general rep spawn farming.

This is just what I have read and heard so far I have not had a chance to check out Illum yet since the patch today.

I don't know about Instant.. but increased Valor per kill (I've seen estimates of 80-100 valor per kill from Repubs) with the 400% increase from the buff of holding all points.. and considering that on a few servers Imps are camping the Medic droid essentially getting kills until people log out.. I could see massive Valor gains well beyond what was intended.

Valor 100 in "a few minutes" seems like exaggeration though.

False, its not killing players.

The exploit is killing the Turrets, which give 100s of valor per kill, respawn instantly, and have no diminishing returns.
