Exactly - it is a ROLE PLAYING GAME, and a MULTIPLAYER one at that. To think that you can control all facets of the game and have them to your delight is asinine. If you want something static, set-in-stone, not dynamic and never-will-change, MMOs are not for you...go pick up Skyrim. You keep bringing up "what (you) paid for" but one of the biggest disclaimers was that
"Game experience may change during online play"and has always been a staple of an MMOs user agreement.

Yeah some of my favorite negative comments towards this event is that it is ruining open PvP. Are you effing serious? It is THANKS to this event that I have been witnessing more open PvP in the last 24 hours than I have in the nearly 4 months this game has been out.

You explained stuns and resolve bar in great detail, that's nice. But it's not necessary.

In reality, it only happens once every 10 minutes. I really wouldn't call something that happens once every 10 minutes "problematic". Let's assume a warzone lasts 20 mins. You'd only explode 2-3 times over the course of 20 mins.

Do you realize how completely idiotic you sound?
Absolutely, if it hits at the wrong time it can.

For example, the Alderaan Civil War (one of the warzones) is veeerrrrryy often just a matter of who controls the turrets first. Often, they never swap to the other side or the advantage gained early is so large that it cannot be overcome. If a player right at the beginning of the warzone were to stun when he is going to take the left turret (which often is done solo), that may result in the other team getting that turret and de facto winning.

If you search the forums, you'll see a TON of people complaining about how the changes to PvP scoring have made it hard enough as it is to actually get rewards from the warzones and the changes are resulting in many early quits.

Mine too. It's all I've done all day!

The plague is a different story.

People need to recognize that those who are objecting are not objecting to the event, but only to the way the plague debuff is working and the negative impacts its having on server life.

Eh, I'm not sure "getting something for it" erases the argument that some folks don't want to participate for whatever reason.

Kind of like I slap you upside the head and then give you a fiver. That'd make it all better, right? And yeah, I know you're likely to say: Sure!

I think it's a fun event, I lost track of how many times I died doing it on one character because the 'Net gods saw fit to give me a craptacular connect yesterday. Today it looks great and I will be having a lot of fun doing it and, this time, actually getting to see something other than every 5th frame.

Again, the support for the event is very high.

The support for the plague facet of it is, I believe, not. On the forums is it popular? Yes. I do not believe it is popular amongst the majority of players, most of whom do not post here.
Are you kidding? TOR forums are notorious around gaming for being filled with never satisfied whiners and complainers; gamers who hate just to hate. If the vast majority are in support of this event ON THESE FORUMS then you'd better believe that Allah himself is joyously running around the Fleet infecting people

Sorry, but that does not fly. Especially considering how undividedly possitive all responses were last night.

Heck, I was in an RP event last night when someone came in and exploded. We just rolled with it and had a laugh as we continued with our Pazaak tournament after everyone was vaccinated.

Sorry, but no. You are the very small minority here.
One cannot deny that there is a particular type of player who posts on forums, and that the general view of the game of those who do not post is typically fairly different, no?
