You know why people try to infect you? You get rewards for it, which you can sell and people will buy. Basically you're saying you don't want free money.

Thanks for proving his point.
Ganking leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to pvp.
The Swtor forum attracts trolls because the forums are more fun than raiding dragon soul.
Complaining is the new meta game.

I will not be paying, to play a game, that forces stupid stuff like this on players.

Please remove this, if you want to continue to have me, as a customer.

Some like it, but i think its completely out of line.
You are the reason I hate 99% of the mmo player base. Go buy a vaccine.

p.s This is in regard to the Plaguebearer (sic) quest and not the whole event which is good.
Has anyone notice that it is the huge Doomcryers that are having a fit over this event?

It's because people are having fun and it detracts from OMGzorZ the game is a dying!!!!! Pretty cheap if you ask me.

No basically I'm saying Bioware is a hypocrite who breaks their own TOS agreement.....

Forcing people to participate in something they don't want to is by definition GRIEFING....

I was fine with this event until people started coming to the station for the soul purpose of infecting other players who didn't want to participate in the event...

yes, this. Leaving the planet should remove the plague from you. It is supposed to be quarantined.

No one is forcing you to play, or even participate. So you're infected, big deal. You'll die once after 30min, get some rewards for it, then go about your business.

IT was a pretty despised event by about half the forum goers at the time. The other half like it. Like I said, about 50/50 as a decent estimate.

It was a griefers joyride at that time.

No you could not avoid the zombie plague at all in WOW. At least SWTOR has that option and yet I bet the event still has about a 50/50 ratio imo.
I'm looking, and if there is something that 50% of the WoW customer base at the time hated, it sure is hidden pretty well. Especially when you say something on the internet it seems to stay out there forever.

And I'd take your bet.

Didn't seem like 50/50 in WoW, and that was only designed for lvl 50+'s, and had no vaccine, and it sure doesnt seem like 50% here either.

If it was 50% you would see TONS of threads hating it. Overflowing the forums. It's contained to one thread, and even in this thread it seems like a low percentage to who likes it.

This is not a fun event. This is F........ stupid. You roll out 1.2 which doesn't work, prices are super inflated and it causes file corruption that keeps players from getting on and then you do this piece of dodo. While there are some folks that may be level 50 and just screwing around anyway, some of us actually play the storylines and are scrambling trying to get to level 50 or Legacy level 6 for by the 22nd for the extra 30 days play time. Getting killed in the middle of fights due to the plague Costs time and credits. It is not fun it is BS. You have so many bugs right now you should be devoting your time to fixing things wrong with the game, not screwing it up more. Great way to lose customers. I suggest you go see if you can buy a clue to good game development.
