Nope, i guess he wants someone somewhere gets the sack because that person is incompetent for his current job.

Give it 3 months and you will be proclaiming it "FAIL" because it does not cater your every demand and personal vision for the game....still at least I know you will surely enjoy such misery

oh i never said i was wating for GW2, but alot of ppl are and that is going to make this community even smaller, so imo they should have just bit the bullet and made everyone happy duringthis one to not drive more ppl away lol

and i havnt heard/seen anyone demanding "automatic acquisition" of anything, and funny how you compair it to a hobby so your saying if i built a model car, and there were pieces missing i would not have a right to be upset?

and yea the next event may very well have other types of weapons, but to say the players have nothing to compain about is narrow minded at best, was it not BW that said each event will work similar to the first one, so was it much of a streach for ppl to think it would offer something for everyone? i dont think so.

cant you just let ppl voice thier opinion without berating them?
Generalise much? I and a few other posters in this thread who are grown ups do not feel "slapped in the face" by the fact I dont have a class specific reward as part of this event. Talk about special little snowflake syndrome.

As long as each class gets their turn with weapon rewards available through the live events then you have nothing to complain about. All you are really sayign here if we are is honest is "some people have things that I can have/use and that is not acceptable to me because I should be included/most important in all decisions".....well thats just life.

My point is can you not just enjoy the content? Why does it matter if Ops get a weapon in this event and BHs get a weapon in the next event for example? Just take part in both and enjoy them for what they are....I would be happy without any rewards, just the title would be enough....

Just because someone gets somehting ahead of you does not make it a fail anything...it just means you need to wait your turn and be patient....my 12 year old understands this!?!?!?!

Commandos don't need to use assault cannons we can do the same with a rifle except use charged bolts or hail of bolts but those attacks suck anyway.

I'm no troll... I can quite readily admit to both the games good points and bad points...I already eluded to the fact that I enjoyed the content for what it is, a periodic live event, despite the bugs and some poor mechanics.

Whereas you post about how you are "demanding the head of dev who made these decisions" which makes you look immature at best.

The difference is I am mature enough to attribute 70% of the games problems to the devs and 30% to the incessant and unrealistic demands of the special snowflake crowd.

1) you mean generalizing like you lumping everyone who is not brown nosing BW into the same group? and special snowflake syndrome? i dont remember demanding exclusives or anything that nobody esle should get.

2) so you know for a fact that each event is only gonna have rewards for a select few classes? and are the forums not the place to give feedback, just because a persons opinion is not the same as yours does not make it any less valid. and no what i was saying is that i would have to create a new character just to get some enjoyment out of the weapons.

3) did i ever say i did not enjoy the event? and thats good for you, i personaly dont care what rewards are in the event as long as they are equal. for example the color crystals from the last event.

4) i dont remember saying the event was fail for any reason. and we have all been patient waiting for this event, that doest mean any classes should be over looked. and thats really good for your 12 year old, maybe they can teach you what an opinion is next...

I'd be more inclined to think the issue is a bit less devs, and a bit more 'management'.
I mean, I will still play this game part time. It's really because as bad as this game is, it still IS Star Wars. The other options out there pre-GW2 are all equally bad or worse.

I don't suspect GW2 will be the greatest thing ever. However, the idea of both arena and open world PvP (especially W v W v W) are both refreshing and exciting. Exciting that they actually coded the game with a game engine that can actually support large scale PvP (or zergs, as some will call it). Having a reason to actually open world fight. Something this game fundamentally lacks (unless grinding for WH gear is a good enough reason).

As many others have said, the last event had rewards for everyone. Even if you throw the crystals out of the window, you still had great companion customizations and armour sets that looked really in-line with the event. Unlike here, where you get SAND PEOPLE ARMOUR???? What does that have to do with the Chevin, Nar Shadda, cartels or anything remotely related to this event? Seriously?

It's just way too obvious they didn't dedicate nearly enough time for making this event. It feels very rushed.
