I'd be amazed if you're getting infected out in the boonies- the only places I've seen it happening was on Tatooine itself or the Fleet. For the former, it's 2K ever six hours for vaccinations- and if you're on Tatooine, you darn well HAVE 2K handy. And you can carry tons of them. They stack. On fleet, you jump over a railing, bottomless pit fall-scream-respawn-cured for no repair cost.

Handy that most places PC's will infect offer easy "suicide" outs that won't hurt you a bit.

If the cure cost so little any level could afford it, or there was a way to limit it by level or world to make those starters off limits, I'd be totally fine with it. Absent that, would a tiny bit of self-restraint really kill anyone?
Personally, for future events I'd like to see the infection cause you to become hostile to NPC's- but that dying with such an infection is automatically zero repair, regardless of how it happens. Yes, that would mean it'd actually be a "free repair" once per infection cycle even if you jumped in front of a group of L50 hostiles and got obliterated, but I think it's fair.

serious dude? this was a fun event for literally everyone i met. and again, most people WANTED to get infected, for the sake of fun.

today during a raid we all wiped because one member exploded, and it was pretty funny. how mad would this make you? i'd pay for a recording.

you are one strange person. just quit and get out.

People keep saying that those not amused by the this feature are hating the fun and excitement. "Booooo...why do you hate fun?!"
Really?!?

I mean I don't really have an issue with this crap, as I'm barely on as is.

But is this game THAT stale, and trite already, that standing around passing off a glowing green debuff that simply kills the infected, and gives five tokens that can be used to purchase maybe one pet and bunch of green color crystals -is somehow a refreshing change of pace?

Reminds me of the lame zombie event from WoW, except there is a slight reward potential. Definitely not as bad though. That was designed just to grief people. This way easier to avoid.

Are you suggesting you can't rez on the spot? If this is correct I can understand, but I don't believe that this is correct.

You die every 20 minutes (max) but suffer no penalty in the way of credit cost, where is the impact?

I say again, I hated the WoW zonbie plague but I just don't understand how anyone can oppose this.

As for those that were considering QQ because they did not get the 30 free days originally; nice to see you value others even less.
So ask someone in your guild for 2k, I just put 800k in my guild's bank over the past 2 days, this is one of those things the guild bank exist for.

Not in a guild? Ask in general chat, ask a stranger, ask a 50, most wouldnt blink at giving you 20k much less 2k if you seemed to genuinely need it and aren't just a beggar.

And since you seem to keep ignoring this over and over and over, SELL THE DNA THEY ARE EACH WORTH 2X MORE THAN ALL THE MONEY YOU HAVE

This event is a carbon copy (once again) of a staple WoW event.

BW proves that they're not interested in anything remotely creative.

It is when you do not wish to participate.

Honestly, it was fun - for a day. At this point, its old, and I really would like to see the game the way it was.
