I think this is pretty close to a suicide for BioWare, even if they do take action.

There were plenty of disappointed people that have been raging about super annoying game bugs since the game came out. NOW even the calmest gamer 'Joe' is raging and everyone else quitting...

It will be interesting to see what happens next, and what step BW takes, as it will likely decide the game's destiny.

Why?

1) Imps will keep farming/destroying Reps.
2) Reps will quit or roll Imps.
3) Imps will be the only faction on most servers.
4) Imps will get bored and game will die.

seriously? you're "investigating" "potential" issues? that should have been where you were at 3 weeks ago when you announced the stupid changes and we all said its not going to work. though granted, none of us foresaw that infinite valor from turrets would be an issue (so good job on screwing up so royally there)


at this point my faith in your pvp designers is lower than the number of republic on ilum.

Seriously?

Four hours for a generic PR response?

Man, how did you guys go from Baldur's Gate 2 to Mass Effect to Dragon Age 2 to this.

I am praying that ME3 can redeem you guys. And I did forgive you guys for Jade Empire, just so you know.

My question is simple: Don't you guys talk to the Mythic employees you have on staff? Did all the guys who designed DAOC leave?

How can you make such glaring mistakes?

Start by stopping faction vs faction fights. If you know a faction is unbalanced creating a system that caters to that imbalance is not a good idea.

Then you take the extra step to allow guilds to fight one another instead of factions. Guilds will help police population imbalances. Look at games like EvE instead of WoW. EvE has 4 factions for PvE, but for PvP it is all about the corps/alliances.

If you want to create epic PvP, then start by going down the EvE or Shadowbane route.

My suggestion for the current state of Ilum is to close the zone as others have suggested. Don't allow this catastrophe to continue. I play an Imperial character and realize this is just too unfair. But as I've said before PvP players are like water and will choose the path of least resistance.
