I wouldn't mind if BioWare does something to slow us, but the way they have chosen seems odd to me. Last time, I had at least my quest log free to do other stuff meanwhile. Also last time with a new day I knew I can progress, but with the daily resets today nothing happened. So I can understand that people feel like this might be a bug (bugs are still not especially rare in this game).

and the game buggs all the time , the travel ablity shows as ready when its not , so im pretty sure it was not tested before the released it or thouse bugs i and others run into would have been fixed , and so what if you finish it on 1 day , its your loose , not the dev team.

i can tell you this , i got in on the rakghoul event late and it was on daily quest , and i didnt complete the event becouse of it , i think they have to let people quest when they can , and not on the game dev timers. after all its the gamers that pays for their wages. wiht out player there is no gaming company , with out game company , the dev. team wouldnt have a job.
You couldn't have done it yesterday, cause it only started today! Just do the other quests and wait till tomorrow when they will unlock more.

LATER? *** IS THAT!? Is it 5 minutes? 10 minutes? a half hour? 8pm tonight? tomorrow? this friday? Come on Bioware, use your brains here! With no information (ubber vague is the same as none) and no direction, why should we even participage. Am I supposed to stop waht I'm doing on my lvl 50 dailies to fly out to DK multiple times a day to find out of Mr. Droid Mechanic is done doing his repairs?

Rhakgoul was a great event, this one however is grabage!
Yes, how dare they give you a temporary break from the daily grind? Amazing. People rant, cry, and throw temper tantrums like a 2-year-old over 'no content' and what do they do as soon as some is implemented? Gripe about it. Yes, burn through this as fast as possible, just like everything else, and then scream about having nothing to do.

On a happier note, thank you devs for the community event. It provides a nice reprieve from dailies.

GRRRrrrr, rar, rar...

Is everyone here grumpy or what. Why can't anyone just give an answer instead of blasting someone for asking a question. You can just easily answer them and say that the missions are timed to be unlocked later. Instead people have to blast them and call them whiners. There are people that will get upset that missions are timed SO WHAT. Instead everyone has to have a grumpyfest and blast everyone. I have never seen such a hostile community in a game.

People did say it was a timed unlock, then people who were complaining responded with how stupid bioware was at giving poor QA testing and not having the journal show that the quests weren't ready.

This event was rather poorly done so far from the amount of cross planet movement to the lack of instanced areas for things like killing falaeen or whatever his name is. People will first say "people complain regardless".

It's a rather silly false dichotomy to say either everyone will complain about lack of content or people will complain about this event.

Regardless of the amount of end game content there is for any game, any content that requires you to waste a ton of time moving back and forth between two places for no reason is silly. Any content that has an arbitrary waiting period for you to finish it, that the game never explains or clarifies, is silly. These 2 factors are magnified when the content is some kind of "event" that people are going to be excited about and want to complete quickly due to their excitement.

Then they say "welcome to mmos".

I'm sure there are a lot of games that used a similar formula, that doesn't make it a good one. If a quest takes a long time because it is challenging or their is a puzzle that is great. If it takes a long time because of arbitrary movement (go to your ship, go to the fleet, go to nar shada, go to dromund kas, back to nar shada....) that is lazy design.

What happens after people get it done in one night? they spend the next 6 complaining about new content.
world events are not content, its a small time waste if anything, content would be more warzones more story more ops and so forth, a world event with only range weapons and a bleh speeder does not count for content.

I don't think this event is that good the one HUGE problem dragging it down is that u have to wait next to a droid all day just to do one quest after waiting for two hours i just gave up. Im not going to try and play this event anymore as its just become a huge waste of time.

I agree with this 10X.

There is a lot of these kind of quest already in the game; "go to this planet and pickup this, then go to this other planet and talk to this npc but nothing more, then go all way back from the planet you came from and talk to this npc to turn it in.

loading screen, loading screen, loading screen. No fighting just loading screens
I'll make this completely clear, rookie--when you're in the field, what I say goes. Period!
