Thanks for participating!
There should be unique items everyone can use, not just 1 class from each faction. I dont want stuff for a companion. just put a bunch of stuff everyone can use, makes sense...now we have to wait, yet again for more items?????? Event....Fail

Thats the real problem you have it seems...if that is enough to drive players away as you state, well then they would have quit over the next little thing anyway...

Driz
thats not what i was saying, having the event bugged, and not offering equal rewards to EVERYONE not just me, EVERYONE do the caps help, is that the only way you understand something? the fact that things like this, the "dumb mistakes" not just this event, has been driving players away over this last year and if things keep going this way we wont have a star wars game anymore.

thats the big picture im considering, so while you may be happy with the rewards, there are far more ppl who are not and i understand where they are coming from. they feel they pay thier $15 a month and should get equal treatment, am i agreeing with them, not fully but i do understand and respect thier opinions and i do think they had enough time to add items everyone would appreciate. didnt wookies also use vibroblades, would it have been that hard to reskin one?

If you don't find anything of value for participating in the event, then don't do it! Why on earth are you demanding people get fired over something so trivial? Why do you feel such a sense of entitlement for something that is meant as nothing but "fluff"? This world event is not a core part of the game, people.

The rewards are considered trinkets/novelty items...nothing more! The speeder is 90% speed because it's a busted-up speeder. Just look at the thing, lol. It's meant to add personality and flavor to the game; so are the bowcasters. They don't give you any sort of advantage, they are simply made as a cosmetic change to your character or companion. If you don't have a character or companion that can use it, then no big deal. You're not losing out on anything!

You complain about the social gear being a plain recolor/slight design change to the sandpeople armor. If Bioware would have made a unique piece of gear, you'd be complaining about that too, saying it's not unique enough or you don't like the looks, etc. Again, the rewards are simply fluff items meant to be novelty items for participating. Screw your head on straight, chill out and exert your energy on something that matters.

The world event in this video game should not be getting you all this worked up. There's simply no justification for it. Period. People whined about how terrible the Rakghoul event was. Now they say it was great. Now they complain how terrible this event is. There's just no pleasing you brats. If things are just that horrible for you, there's a way to change that. It's called "unsubscribe". Take your nerd rage to the next MMO please. Thanks!
We will. Enjoy your continually rapidly emptying servers. This place is consistently heading the direction of SWG.

There was a time, about 6 weeks or so ago, when I had just moved to Fatman. The place was BUSY. We typically had 2 full imperial fleet instances - sometimes a 3rd opened up.

This week? We fill up one instance, with a smaller second. I would speculate that Fatman has lost a good 40% of its active, daily population over the past 6 weeks. This is DESPITE being given a 'superserver' environment. I've seen several primary PvP guilds Imperial side dwindle and die over that time. There are VERY few legitimate ones left, maybe 3 or 4 total (now that Instinct and Expletive merged to make one out of the TWO they used to be)

At some point, people like you need to also step back and see the bigger picture. These geniuses at Bioware spent all this time coding this event, and the majority of people still left playing it, think it sucks.

That's a problem for the game, long past it's a problem for any of us.

Wake up, and see and smell the failure this MMORPG is sadly continuing to devolve into. It's not like I'm happy and giddy about it. Like many of you, I waited years for this.

Advance classes that go out of their way to get special colored color crystals? 8. The amount that don't give a crud? 8. Did the other 8 complain this loudly during the Rakgul event? I don't remember any complaining at all, to be honest.

And besides that, the Bowcasters are BIND ON ACCOUNT. You can send them to your Sniper, Vanguard or Operative. Also, everyone can use the sandpeople armor.

since so many have taken it the wrong way i would like to point out again that on page 11 when i said

"i demand the head of the dev that made these decisions!"

i was being sarcastic, trying to add a little humor to the end of my rant, nothing less nothing more.

I must have missed the autocannon because I only remember sniper rifles and blaster rifles, which leaves out Commandos unless they want to go back to being equipped as they were on Ord Mantell.

No no no, read it one more time very slowly so that you may understand.

How many classes can use crystals? All of them.
How many classes can use sniper rifles / blaster rifles. Three out of sixteen.

There's nothing more to add to that. Whether you like it or not, crystals could still be used by everyone, while these rewards cannot. It's as simple as that.

Yes, you're right, very few people complained about the rakghoul event because it was very well done. Again, please tell me what sand people armour has to do with anything related to this event?

BTW the bowcasters are not bound to account, they're bound to legacy. It's not even remotely the same thing. Bind to account would mean you could transfer it to like any character you own on any server.

Roll an agent or a vanguard and enjoy the rewards instead of whining and pouting like children because you don't wanna.

Thanks bioware for having something new to do in the game even for just a short time.

No big deal bud. I see the bigger picture. It's a video game. It won't last forever. If I don't enjoy it, I'll stop playing it and pick up another one. I'm sorry to hear that you waited years for a video game that disappointed you. I'm not going to shed any tears if you unsubscribe due to dissatisfaction. Yes, the servers populations are dwindling. They will just continue to consolidate/shut down servers until they turn the lights off. It's a fact of MMO's. They have to end at some point. Some sooner than others. Oh well. I will continue to play it until I don't enjoy it any more, or they pull the plug. One thing is for sure though: I won't nerd rage over something so trivial as this game.

From what I've read on this thread, here is what everyone wants:
An epic level speeder
Removal of the RNG on any aspect of the event
Instanced portions of the quest to remove any human element/coordination/organization with the "huge hassle" of clicking an object, lol
Legacy bound gear
Removal of the bowcasters and implementation of some sort of piece of gear that every single class can use on the same effective level.

Really? For a fluff event? Why don't we save that for a true content update, where that stuff matter for "progression" in character development?

Like I said, I just don't see why peoples emotions are to the level they are. This is trivial.

...wow. With the last event, everyone could use the crystals. So with this event you decided to only have items for 2 classes? This is supposed to entice me to keep playing until the next event? Most cosmetic things I don't even care about but you could at least make other classes feel like they were offered something special too. This is bad form amd doesn't inspire confidence in the game.
