To have anyone spread the plague intentionally to earn a few credits ( or armor that is soon enough outdated, or a essentially horribly silly pet Rakghul) in my opinion childish. If the player community does not take objection to this..then it will continue. The 10 year old will rule the game and serious players will wander off.

Personally, I do not wish for another SW-WoW. Keep SWTOR up to KOTOR level.
This STARTED in KOTOR.
If you pick up a novel, and see pages 2-899 only as obstacles between pages 1 and 900, then it may just be that you don't like reading.

I wouldn't mind the event ending so soon if the containment set was legacy bound. I mean my BH has zero use for it, none of the companions use light armor. But it sure would have looked nice on my low level Inqis who has stayed low level just to try to get social points from running BT over and over.

Didn't realize it would be ending so soon until I happened across this tiny arsed thread. Really guys, a heads up next time (on the freaking game launcher! not on a single thread on general forums that many don't bother to look at anyway!) would be nice. Even the day of. I had no clue what was going on as I was busting my hump trying to hit 50 on my Jugg.

I love this event, in fact, i started leveling a shadow just to use the gear from the dailies cause i thought it looked awesome. i started on time and would have been able to get a full set, if it were for the quests being buggy, and so i cannot get the full set now cause i have been set back by not only the blood quests being bugged out, but the jawa quest as well. so you see, even for some one who planned it out, there was not enough time for the event to go o. so i beg of you, EXTENT THE EVENT!!!

Man don't even bother, it's like talking to a tree, only these people who fail to comprehend that Rakghouls and their plague infection originate from Star Wars KOTOR are even more dense.

Once more i have to give credit to Bioware, this event is great, keep up the good work.

Add me to the list of people who will fall short on the gear. BioWare, don't listen to the whiners - this event has been fun. Please give us another week, so players like me who were unable to participate in the early days won't miss out on seeing everything!

Otherwise nice event and all, just came so soon after patch, that my newly rolled legacy race consular didn't manage to level high enough in time to get all containment officer gear before the new deadline, and I'm so depressed about this part bloody "can only get mission next day after doing previous days ones"...

Prolong the studies about containing the outbreak!

Just want to point something out if i may. It was previously stated that you must start the event by the 19th to get the complete set, well here is the thing. The last daily gives you the option for 1 of the 2 armour sets and no option for both, so you miss stated when people should start as that would infact be the 18th.

Would really appreciate another week or so for this world event, missed a couple of days and now I won't get the rest of the sweet looking set or finish the quests. Very enjoyable so far

Also, this might be of interest - walkthrough for the scavenger hunt, fun quest

Overall, best event in a MMO so far imo
Then you have either never played another MMO, or were smoking crack during their world events, or this one, because imo this is easily the worst game design I have ever encountered as far was world events go.

I'll add my voice to those disappointed the event ended so soon.

I'm a new player and I just barely managed to get a character to 25 so I could strive to get the containment gear. I'd be happy knowing that it would at least return at a later date or something.
