It's good to know that people can't fly into there now.

what about the 600-1000 valor/ minute gained by those camping? oh well everyone is valor 60 now?

EDIT to the guy above: if you think no one gained insane valor, you didn't go out there.

This is the update and official response on the state of Ilum?


Don't ignore the fact that massive faction imbalance makes it pointless for Republic to even consider going to Ilum. Or the fact that controlling bases means next to nothing when you're outnumbered 30:1.

Ilum is a massive fail. BioWare needs to get their head on straight and ADMIT THAT THEY FAILED.

These "fixes" are a band-aid on a broken leg.

What about the valor gains? You going to leave those in? Now all of these people who had the day off, exploiting the spawn camp since the servers went up, gaining multiple valor levels, if not tens of multiple will be rewarded for their efforts while the rest of us suffer.

I'm glad efforts are being made in a hurry but a rush job is what got us here in the first place. This is a fruitless change that did nothing but reward exploiters, just like the initial early access wave. A roll back was the only fix I could possibly see, be it valor only or even server.
