There was no exploit that I am aware of. It's all just a massive troll started by someone yesterday. I had people arguing with me in fleet chat earlier today insisting that the game needed a rollback and people exploited to VR 100. lol

Give it a few days and let the hysteria calm down, currently alot of players are still wound up emotionally and can't think straight.

This can't be right. Not a single person has a shred of evidence that there was actually more valor being awarded than intended. =( You mean the PvPers in rollback threads are just taking someones word for it?

correct, minus republic players being able to heal turrets for massive valor.

and minus the whole alts in ilum chain rezzing.

basically valor is worthlessly easy now. raising it from 10 to 20 base when there is 200% bonus applied is a big deal.

but you noobs have no idea what it was like to get battlemaster, so enjoy it now for free after 2 days of aoe spam in 2 fps. you earned it.

Yup. That's it. We were all trolled and now we're all trolling.

You should do some digging, my good man.

If a player is greyed out, you don't get Valor for killing them rofl. I should know, I've killed my fair share of lowbies. Valor was always "easy" to get. It doesn't take skill to get Valor that is freely handed to you if you afk a warzone. Should we call you an exploiter for maximizing your Valor gains in Warzones by medal farming? Should we call you an exploiter for doing Warzones for 12 hours a day?

I have! I've been through several "Rollback now or I quit!" threads with people asking for evidence but the OP/supporters of rolling back keep giving me the very response you gave me! If you actually know where evidence is of an exploit occurring, why don't you just share it rather than give the run around?

In fact, wouldn't that be something you'd want to include in your original post?

The only "proof" people have is 2 images and a few youtube videos that have been passed around more than a blunt. Half the claims are false anyway, especially the one about the turrents.

All that 1.1 caused was it revealed a glaring Faction Imbalance, that is it. The only reason this was seen anyway was because it was always there 1.1 just gave us a reason to PvP on Ilum where the Empire numbers would be signifigant.

Yes there was.

Empire was gaining an amazing amount of valor yesterday by farming Repuplic at their base on their steps.

Bioware has stated this was an "exploit" after it happening for about 5 hours, did nothing but disable taxi service and kept the servers up. I fail to see how killing players in a broken PvP zone is exploiting more like testing a broken patch but thanks for labeling all Empire players "exploiters".

So yea, it happened. No it isn't a troll and I unsubbed long before 1.1 anyway.

I play Empire btw and won't support a broken system where our side gets a crazy valor/gear advantage.

I posted this on another thread:

Quote:
What's difficult about this situation is that:

(1) You're asking people to willingly turn themselves in if the exploit is true. Sure, Bioware may have ways of punishing players by looking at data, but that's not the point here as we don't know what they're going to do since they haven't said a word since yesterday.

(2) Again, let's say this exploit is true, you're asking the _EXPLOITER_ to turn themselves in. Why would a criminal do that? Hell, it's even hard for an honest man to admit what he did wrong. So far, we got one honest person:

(3) Who the hell is going to document proof of their exploitation? I sure as hell wouldn't. I'd be discreet. How many people do you think will capture themselves at X rank then show another picture at X rank?

(4) Why would massive amounts of Imperials stay at Ilum for hours upon hours against the few Republic? Like the man above me said, flash mob? Be real.

(5) Not every person on Ilum came to the forums. It's a small percentage of the total population.

(6) Why did the threads blow up in a few hours yesterday? Call it mass hysteria all you want, but bar the turret farming troll, people were upset. Bioware said two responses in ten hours and let the zerg-fest go on. They showed to me and my close friends that they aren't competent enough to run an MMO.

Believe what you want to, but I think SOMETHING happened on Ilum that day.
Point is, you aren't going to find an overwhelming amount of data on the issue. You'll find pieces of bones that looked just like a creature but it won't be breathing.

There is some other junk floating around, but once again, it's not in my interest to persuade you. I didn't quit because of the valor rollbacks. Mostly because of the ability lags and the fact that Bioware is a little rusty when it comes to PvP. ;(
