I was valor 59 when today started

Grinded my *** off for about 30k+ valor today doing 15-20 warzones to hit 60 today, just to later find out people got the same amount from a couple hours of exploiting people dying and respawning

1. They need to roll back the exploiters or I ragequit

2. If they roll my LEGIT VALOR from WZ today I might ragequit as well.

I think they chosed the safest option regarding subscription loss

The expectation is that BW would be qualified enough to have avoided the issue before it ever got to this point.

They are making ametuer mistakes, which I think is why people are so upset. This is not some 'out of nowhere' surprise issue.

Not Happy with the State of TOR?

The republic on my server said, die imperial scum and did just that. Are some servers not balanced, probably... server transfers in order? Yep

Here is what I dont get. I am a Republic player but my highest level character is just about to hit 48. I have to ask though.......why does everyone keep respawning?

The problem is clear. They rack up valor from player kills. When you are dead you can still see the the SEA OF RED NAMES and all the horrible lightning and explosions blowing up the very spot you are going to reappear at. So why, WHY would you be so dumb to respawn OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN to feed the massive horde valor then come complain about it later. That makes no sense. STOP. SPAWNING. Go play an alt for the day. The Imperial plays will stop when they suddenly have NO ONE TO KILL and they won't all be Instant Battlemasters. Yes the patch is messed up and this should probably never have happened to begin with but you are doing nothing but feeding the problem. You are the ones giving the enemy players their valor ranks, not Bioware. Now they are going to be doing an emergency patch which is great and all but honestly this shutting down of taxi's to the planet or whatever should have been done earlier to avoid this. Then people would be less upset at the 3-4 valor ranks that some people gained as opposed to the 10 or more they did over the course of the day.

The fault may have originally been Bioware's but the players didn't help the situation. My point still stands.
