Derp. Getting 80% huttball I feel with the Republic players as I was stupid enough NOT to exploit the spawncamping and get from 44 to 60 valor today.

Turrets or not doesn't matter: it was not working as intended. It needs to be rolled back.

Please oh please elaborate how any of these poorly designed PvP changes are getting through your internal testing?

Will you be getting rid of this cap when (IF) you optimize your Hero Engine to handle a game? Our clients would run better if you took the time to optimize it. If you take away the UI for example my FPS increases to 30fps while on Ilum with large groups of players around (including Empire players).
I would love an explanation about this. Please, hit us with some knowledge.
I'd say 'IMHO', but it would be a lie. I'm not humble, and everything I say is stone cold fact.

At most you would have got a few valor levels since the 1.1 patch.

Stop talking crap, there doesnt need to be a rollback.
Obviously has not been to ilum,
and has no clue what he's talkign about

Not rolling back is a gross error. What a waste. Now PvP on the Republic side will consist of crawling out of a hole and will have no worth until the level cap increases.

I think SWTOR even broke the record when it comes to losing subs, i think they'll even beat Age of Conan.

EA umad? Money doesnt buy you a decent MMO crew it seems.

It's getting ridicolous. The Valor gain is out of hand... Even on republic side i was able to gain about 15k Valor while not controlling Ilum in ONE hour. That's about 4 times you gain for doing Warzones. And Imps got much more valor due to full Ilum control...

But yet again, the PvP Dev (or to go further, all "lead" devs seem to do this) is ignoring the issues, and trying to fix things which ways that will never work. (Hint: Population imbalance isn't fixed by capping the zones...)
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."...

Hey gabe, will you ever get a clue about what PvPers want ?

just wondering, since you are the responsible for the disgrace that swtor open world pvp is.
