To answer your question, not In such a blatant sense, not particularly.

George has said on many occassions that EU is not really considered canon which some have used as a justifacation.
Um, this ENTIRE GAME is EU.

If you look through all the threads on the rakghoul suff that are active right now, virtually all of the new posters who have joined the threads since this morning don't like it. Most people still like it, but it's not just "a few" that don't. It's a healthy segment of the population.

I am a pvper who ususally doesn't give a crap about fluff and I think it's fun. Way less cheesy than stupid holiday events and makes the world more immersive.

I'm looking through the threads and seeing an almost overwhelming liking of the event...which in itself is EXTREMELY odd on these forums.

Normally this is the center hub of the universe for all things negative of TOR. You would think if it was a "healthy segment of the population" that you would see a LOT more noise seeing how when people get a paper cut they run to the forums to blame TOR.

What I said was that I had a certain amount of RP in me. Perhaps this was a n unclear statement, and I apologize. What I meant was that, though I do not play on an RP server, the way I look at my character has a small amount of RP. In other words, I didn't just choose conversation choices for the best stats, nor will I wear armor just for the stats, etc., but care about the look of it because I do have some idea of "who my character is" and want to keep it that way.

In any case, my logic is very simple:

I like the event, I hate the plague.

Edit: Also, despite what was said all night long, it's becoming more and more apparent across a variety of threads that there are a lot more people that really don't like this than folks tried to insist there were.

With all due respect but after all the people that have gone through real pains and have knocked their heads against the wall to reason with you, I still don't know if you are a subtle troll, if you are on drugs or if you are having a bad day. If it's not the former, my suggestion is to take a cold shower and an ibuprophen, rest a bit a/o make love with your partner. Your brains will appreciate.

EDIT: after seeing your edit and some other posts of yours, i'm definitely inclined to think you are a troll like a rancor. Good day to you sir.

Pls consider this: one is encouraged by others to meta-game, and discover one can die safely, gather loot via Death, and cash in said trove for goodies. Also, the RP announcements speak of isolation and containment; the Mission and OOC info is to infect others. People play terrorist, and attack others w/o permission. Etc.

As a 35+ year RP vet, it is my experience that such actions are rather frowned upon in the RP community; not promoted.

Large Guild evaluated at the time of the event. Roughly 50/50 as a decent estimate but given how bad the griefing was I'd really say more people hated it than liked it.
