I wish they would double the exp every weekend, not just until RothC comes out. That way I really could play ToR like KotoR 3.

I absolutely loved this as well. Managed to play enough to get my level 15 trooper up to 32 this weekend. I'm actually a bit more motivated to keep playing him some now until the next weekend approaches. The fact my rested experience didn't get consumed was a real plus.

Thanks Bioware!

It was different. Definitely nice to be able to power through things I've seen several times (I had 3 50s, now 4 ). But, a warning to folks, have lots of credits on hand if you are in the last levels. It gets expensive to equip yourself and companions quickly and you will need to do so.

Would like to chime in to say that I absolutely loved the double XP weekend as well. I started my first Empire character and felt like the pace of the progression was a lot more satisfying than when I played with my JK. I think for a game that has such high quality story driven content to get through it would be great to see a lot more of these double XP weekends. I like the idea of seeing more story content through more alts with less grind time.

It was awesome. I just finished leveling my fourth 50 before double XP was announced, and I thought it would be a while before I could do the next one. But this weekend it felt like the game was fun again. They should definitely do this more often.

"+310% bonus experience! That is over triple the experience. Enjoying your leveling my friends!" <-- Courtneywoods from BW said this and it's just silly and groundbreaking to hear a Mmo developer say something like this..

Breaks so much Rp elements of a Mmo just sad to see staff member of a company behind the product to say something like this and use that silly leveling word and to feed xp addicts like that..just as BW has been giving +xp gain rewards for a while now and NOT a nice way to get ppl to check up Cartel Market like that when given that xp boost crap as reward in game & maybe buy stuff and meaning those ppl who drool for the faster xp so they buy some of those from CM after they see from reward's description that it's available in CM..just sad

I wish that those +xp gain rewards wouldn't be available from anyplace else than from CM when 2.0 comes. Ppl can get them from CM if they want,but pls don't feed them for everyone after a mission or even a Flashpoint. It really makes a normal adventurer sad who don't care about stupid boost's as those ppl tend to adventure with relaxed pace and not think of the Mmo as like a race where u need to get to current max lvl "assuming that Mmo has lvls" in blink of an eye and just drool for that xp.

So pls if u plan on doing stupid double xp weekend's even after 2.0 then give us option to toggle it and stop giving +xp rewards after Fp's / Mission's Ty. I have destroyed them so far when received,but would be nice to not receive at all as a reward cause it really breaks the feeling from adventures. If u want to advertise Cm and those +xp packages that last for 1hr and longer then pls advertise with some other way than giving them as rewards with other equipment or comms. Do not make this fine piece of art "Star Wars the Old Republic" a simple & lazy mode Mmo already after it's been out for 1 year

I know that there will be some +xp drooling fanboys replying to this with messages including hatred,but i don't care as i just don't want to see every Mmo going down to simple mode bath where this xp is given to adventurers on a golden shiny spoon so they won't need to see any effort while adventuring and getting to that current max lvl in blink of an eye.

Those many Legacy perks already give increased Xp flow and when ppl who have 1 or more of them in use use +xp rewards it's just silly fast character progress :/ No matter if it's alt or main and if someone has seen same stuff many times and cba to do same again "as many say for that" :P Newcomers who use these double xp weekend's and also get +xp flow rewards or even buy them from CM after notice it they "overlevel" area's and therefore they'll miss some stuff and they might like some of it that they missed.

There r already looots of characters who can adventure to Makeb when it comes so like Devs said that these double xp weekend's are related to "March to Makeb" are silly cause there is already well enough ppl to march there when it comes and meaning without silly double xp weekend's.

Also why would soo many have to go there at same time as ppl can adventure there when time is rdy for them to adventure,but no need to start feeding that Xp with golden spoon to everyone so then those 2x available instances in the planet "or maybe 3" will be soo full that it's a huge lagfest when it launches and will last for a long time. That is not the main reason though why this feeding xp with double xp weekends is silly move..Sure there is a huge amount of voice overs done in Swtor and it's a great thing i think and love it,but not enough content after 1 year to start bringing these foolish +xp flow rewards and double xp weekend's. Also even if would have that double weekends shouldn't be given even if expansion would be almost knocking on the door.

Wiuh..been a subber for a loong time and been adventuring with a relaxed pace as love to do as it's a Mmo and not meant to be finished in a blink of an eye and y even i was on a break i didn't cancel the sub cause there was no need for it and loved to support the SW Mmo. Atm. it is silly though that Subbers get 500 coins monthly and amount should be around 650 and that Cartel Market Reputation panel shouldn't be with other Reputations in Legacy tab,but it should be integrated into Cartel Market. Cause it's a achieved with real cash and it's a disgrace for the SW to be placed with other Factions.

Wishing a nice week for all SW Universe fans

well i played through both class and planet quests and went from mid lvl 38 to mid 44, (BH Merc)but for me it is bitter sweet, once i get to 50,I will be out of things to do that I LIKE, dont really care for PVP and ops sounds like a lot of grind, redoing a char class is boring to me. these are just my own options, some people like doing the same stuf f over and over slightly different. but all in all a fun weekend
