For which i will address first.

If you are pve and dont like pvp dont do the pvp quests that are part of the event on ilum. Before you cry that you still get ganked doing the pve quests on ilum well thats just part of swtor look what is happening over at section x with dread tooth and rival guilds griefing on each other.

If you are pvp and dont like pve dont do the pve parts of the quests that are on ilum - simples.

You can easily tell if you are doing pvp or pve quests as it will state next to quest in big letters "PVP". another huge clue is also the fact that you collect PVP commendations for PVP quests and PVE dailys for pve quests lolz...

The weapons or rewards that you collect for either pvp or pve are the same and can be used by either, so no!!! your not getting pvp quests to collect pve gear and vice versa.

Finally on the issue of FFA. If the world event was faction based everyone would be crying "not eno REPS the event is a failure"

I personally think bioware has done its best to try to appease everyone with this event and so far im loving every minute of it, even the pve dare i say .

The pvp Quests rock even when theres no reps about, even same faction based groups are always on edge waiting for that little spark to ignite an imp verses imp war, this makes for exciting times always watching out for fellow guldies even around other sith.

Last night a team of us went to kill garok'k, we entered the cave onlly to find 16 reps waiting there, ready to kill the boss. It was amazing first we battled the reps for killing rights then had to fight them and the boss at the same time, it was epic. I mean i'm not getting experiences like that sat on fleet whining about the event instead of actually playing it.

i'm getting board now of this typing stuff but just wanted to say how great i think the event is, best one yet by far. love the quests, love the set up, very happy.

Oh i think tho that tying reputation to legacy and then capping it is pretty stupid, as basically there is no real incentive to do the quests after 2 days when everyone will have reached the first weeks reputation capp.

If you are going to do that at least let us sell the extra reputation chips like we could we the ragukoul DNA.

Gonna have to agree here, I've been having so much fun on Ilum causing chaos. Pushing people off of ice bridges, killing orb holders in lines while holding your own to cause a chain reaction, getting killed trying something crazy.

This event certainly created some fascinating gameplay.

The biggest problem with the event is the communty's lack of sportmanship. If you see two people have a fair duel, why jump in with your group of four? Same thing if a solo player, me, attacks one of you, do all of you need to attack me? I'm there for PvP and I'm usually not even bothered with the missions (read: I'm not one of those standing in line) but few are the times I actually get to have some fair fights. One would think that my duel banner gave it away.

Worst are of course those who bring their entire clan in four different groups and attack solo players. Are you really that bad ?

Had one duel against another sorc. This thing had been going on for minutes and while it was in the PvP area it was also far away from everyone els and the objectives. Some ******e had to ruin that fun of course.

So in conclusion; Haaaa!

Almost forgot, also had some a-hole taking down my HP as I was trying to heal a 16-man WB.

We have issues with people doing that kind of stuff on BC until we formed a policing unit of about 20 to 30 players and when someone is causing chaos just message them and they come down and clear and guard mid.

Also, they need to get rid of the CD on the pylon and make orb delivery instant or take a maximum of 2 seconds. I don't know about the rest of you but despite being against the lines I'm not ganking people who have been waiting for 5 mins, that would be a douche move. With no CD and no lines people might have PvP'ed a bit more, knowing that if they kill a guy it won't take him all day to get a new orb. Granted that people also would be able to leave the area much faster but if they're leaving fast they're not really the main demographics to begin with.

We will usually let at least one person turn in orbs...it cuts down on the damage via the explosion. I hold no regrets towards killing anyone and everyone in the FFA zone. This is one mission you can totally skip and be able to skip and still be able to reach max rep.

BW not making the effort to address faction imbalance is a total fail. FFA does not address this issue.

Star Wars TOR is supposed to be about the Sith vs. Republic. FFA focus totally fails to achieve this.

If FFA remains the focus of OW-PVP, then this game is for a fact a complete and utter failure.

BW obviously had their head in the sand when they decided to make faction locked toons, and made no effort to insure the factions are balanced from all aspects.

Good for you that FFA is what you want. I know for sure that most players to not want FFA and that FFA will only kill the game in the long run. All you need to do is look at Outlaw's Den and how that panned out long term.

Well for me and everyone that I know the FFA came as a surprise. However I am still having fun but I would rather have had true open world but I can live with this. Also this is a recurring event and I bet they are listening to feedback so with luck maybe some tweaking will happen when the event comes back in the future.
