I think that is part of the idea. Good idea too about a zero cost vaccine. Let's peeps who like it keep getting infected, but can't grief people who don't. Sort of like PVP on a PVE server should be.

Either make him return and be done with it or don't. Don't come here saying they he "may possibly" return. People need to know if they should be holding on to DNA or if it's junk. Also, a simple statement like this by you has an impact on the value of the items that people are trying to buy or sell. The worth of the items are in question as long as whoever makes the decisions remains indecisive.

If they say he will be returning, then many people will continue to farm DNA, by infecting more and more people.

When using a fleet pass, for example, and getting infected before you can move from the spot. Or having someone dive bomb you from the vip lounge. Or catching you while logging in. Or running up to you and exploding before you've heard of the event in the first day. Or from looking away to pet the cat that just jumped on your lap while your character is in a supposed "safe area".

That's also false; you can, for example: be in a huttball match, and lose because the ball carrier explodes right before he crosses the goal line. You can lose a match in any of the warzones because someone exploded (or was even just stunned) at the wrong moment. You can wind up exploding while soloing a champion mob and have to spend the time to beat him down again (since he'll reset back to 100%). you can fall prey to the bug that made a guy lose a piece of gear because he exploded at the wrong time; even if he gets it back that has affected his game play. You can lose a space mission as a result of the explosion.

And even if you're not doing anything other than traveling it's an interruption (albeit a short one) to what you're doing.

So while it doesn't affect YOUR gameplay, it does indeed affect other people's game play. And for anyone not interested in the so called rewards of the event, it doesn't offer any benefit at all.

So, for the people who don't want to be involved, you're suggesting that they just sit around and waste 20 minutes of thier game time and then go get involved in the event. Did you miss the part where they didn't want to be involved?

So if you don't want to be mugged, just give your money to the mugger?
Nicely said, I'm glad somebody is mentioning how it affects us pvpr's. I have zero interest in this event, and for the pve crowd where yeah sure you probably dont die a lot (fighting npc's lol) you certainly do in wz's and it's a total pain in the a*s having to constantly shell out $ for vaccines as opposed to the pve crowd who only buy probaly one a day (6hr immunity). On top of this there's nothing worse in a huttball match or any wz suddenly bending over spewing up for a couple secs while ya getting lolowned in the face or exploding at a critical moment for a win.

And now I hear the whole plague thing could be around for a while......fantastic. Why is it that some people will defend THEIR right to not have to participate in pvp whatsoever (and hey that's cool, you don't want to pvp I have no probs with that) but I have to be a part of this pve event that effects my pvp gametime?

But if you're dying a lot in warzones then why bother buying vaccines? The effect will be lost when you die.

The total effect is 20 mins long from infection to death, which is way way longer than a hutball match ... so unless you're never dying in a warzone it won't be running its full course. So combined with you dying a lot I'm not sure how these infections are having as massive an impact as you say.
But I agree that catching it towards the end of a match (and not dying), then having it develop between matches, and then you entering a new match while it is well developed could be annoying.

Please bring vendor back. Or tell us this is useless junk that we're holding.

^Please just bring the vendor back you really ought to put announcements on the game start-up... you know that little screen you see with the same bs all the time before you hit "PLAY" certain announcements such as when how long an event is going to last are important. You shouldn't have to browse the forums to find out.
THIS is a hassle for me to have to stop PLAYING the GAME to come onto the forum and see if the vendor has been brought back yet.

I honestly have the game open in another window right now and paused it because important stuff such as this are never put on the game start-up. What MMO doesn't do that? Even the free ones I've played do. (League of Legos, Live Frontier, Bored of These Rings Online, etc.)
