Here's the thing: the people complaining don't believe it's a minor effect.

Consider this: people are playing, here, an MMORPG. Some of the people who are playing it are going to care enough about those RPG elements to be pretty upset when their character is infected with this plague and all that goes along with it.

Let them dislike it.

From what I've seen, they are letting you like it (the OP excluded). They just want the opportunity to be heard as to why they do not enjoy it. On the other side of things, any time anyone says he dislikes the plague, he's attacked with names of every sort.

You would say it's a minor impact on these players, but they may feel its a major impact, and the fact is, we're talking about a game here - something for and based on entertainment. By it's very definition, what people enjoy or do not enjoy about it will be tremendously subjective. If someone feels its a major impact, its a major impact, because the nature of games is that their impact is very personal.

I have been experimenting...it looks like the range (explosive wave) is no more than 3 meters.

This is not being forced at all. I'm sorry, it's just not. It's extremely easy to avoid.
Ok.....lets take a example...you need to go the Fleet..you ether lag bad...or need to take a quick afk ( rl does call on occasions, you know? ) and you get infected when "you did not want to be". How is this not forcing this on some?

Here is what they should of done, if your infected you turn into a rakghoul and instantly become flaged for FFA PVP at which point anyone can shoot you and kill you.... if you can survive for 5's seconds and explode then you get your DNA and can infect other players... But if someone kills you before then you get nothing....

Now this would be a cool RP event
F2P is like driving on a long stretch of highway with toll booths every 1/2 mile

I suppose so :P lol.

@Qura don't use the "poor alts" excuse. If you have alts that are 'that' poor you'd be happy as a spring bird over the money that the samples net you when you're infected. And a no-penalty respawn with rewards is hardly a bad thing. Why does blowing up in a fashionable and pretty manner that bad?

Sorry.
It looks like I might of erased stealth in that.

Normally I could bypass or deal with them healing my companion but it is annoying. Why is it when I die in pve the plague isn't removed? I would be satisfied with that go find a mob let it kill me near town procede on without worring about this.

Excellent post. And the very reasons some should not have to do a event they donot wish to. I can watch a horror movie and sleep good at night. Some cannot...does that mean they are being silly and I can make fun of them for feeling that way? It really is a matter of respecting others.

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.
The fact that you are quiting the game over one little event that makes you unhappy just shows you were spoiled as a child. Grow up.

So here's the deal, people.

This is BW's game.

They are BIG on story and ROLEPLAYING.

There is an unstoppable plague.

It is spreading.

You have a few options. Get infected, run for your life, buy a vaccine.

You DO NOT HAVE THE OPTION TO IGNORE A PLAGUE.

Hide, or face it. It does not care if you like it.

Now knowing this maybe BW should put in the game were someone infected cannot get on fleet or off the planet until they are cured. Something along the lines "Due to the rampant spread of the infection all ports leading off the planet are closed until you are clean of this infection".
Are you naive? If there is a way to grief others, players will do it. This si why MMOs have to have events with training wheels because players will almost always seek to grief others.
Relabeling future patches as Expansions, just like EA Louse said a year ago. Who got the last laugh?
