Let's say you planned to level during the March to Makeb entirely through... Flashpoints.

200% base experience
+25% Flashpoint Boost
+30% Flashpoint Legacy perk

*THIS BONUS DOES NOT STACK WITH RESTED EXPERIENCE

Since both of the boosts are being applied to double base XP, they are also doubled. Do you know what that means?!

+310% bonus experience! That is over triple the experience. Enjoying your leveling my friends!

TLDR, yes they stack and for the math nerds it is multiplicative on top of the new base of 200% (assuming I understood it all correctly)

No!I been taking those naps for nothing.Just kidding I think it is a great idea!The weekend starts on Thursday right Just a note:I really like those complimentary XP boost.

My point is, if you manage your play you can get exactly what you want out of the game. But you have to do it. Play the way you want too and leave the whine alone.

BTW here is another solution "easy" for you. Play in your level 10 greens as long as you can. So how far you can go. Play every bit of content you can until you can't anymore... then go up a lev or 2 in gear and see how far you can go. Hec, you'll make a tons of creds and comms in the process.
No way dude!I have cheese must have whine to go with it.I go back myself to do certain quest even if I don't get xp.It 's more because I was interested in the quest just for itself.I get caught up in the story line so sometimes I lock in on that.

It is NOT against the ToS to save comms, and use them to buy higher tiered gear once you reach level 50.

It's quite obvious you haven't read the ToS, because none of the above is factual, even the last bit.

Please do not post stuff that is completely untrue, would appreciate it, thank you.

I'll admit that every game I play when I get bored I sit down and read the EULA/ToS - I even read it over my vent so we can laugh at my friends who are going to break the rules and potentially be banned. So I do actually know what's in it.

So as I won't say that you will be banned for this the idea of the game is you are "suppose" to use the recruit gear. And in the future the bolster system will take that spot.

So there is no need to have a huge amount of comms at 50. Just use the recruit gear lol.
If they did not intend for smart players to bank comms to buy some WH gear then they would disable commendations pre 50. I bet you're the player who jumps into 50 with recruit gear and complains about a gear gap when a smarter player with maxed warzone/ranked comms has a few pieces of WH already and knows whats up.

Also when I hit 50 on my jug I was 100% fully min/maxed WH gear...ban me.

The change they made to the chests - must be level 45 to open - should have been put in at launch rather than banning players.

I am happy that a lot of people are pleased with this. You can count me in the group that would like a way to disable it.

My wife and I play together on the weekends. It is the only time that she plays. She is leveling up her first Empire character (I have several) and would like to experience all of the quests from the 'dark' side. As it is we are a couple of levels ahead of the current planet we are on (just landing on Taris).

So it looks like it will be difficult to play and not outstrip the content even faster. I wouldn't mind the double xp during the week as I am in the process of leveling up a couple of alts and i already know the quests pretty well on both factions.

Not a game breaker, but we probably won't play our paired characters until the double xp weekends are over. I hope she wants to finish them after the long break.

Saying there are no solutions might have been poor wording on my part, what I was arguing is your idea that we can still get what we want out of the game. If we like playing a certain way, and double XP ruins it, changing to a playstyle we don't enjoy won't fix it. Your solutions may work in a way, but they still take the fun out of the game. Thus why myself and other are asking they make the double XP optional, as in everyone gets what they want, instead of forcing it on those who don't want it. Maybe it's better to say the double XP weekend doesn't work for my playstyle, but whatever. Nobody was whining, a request for a change is not whining.
