Uhm...do any of you realise that this is a preview and not the PATCH NOTES.

They said a lot of big things were coming for PvP in 2.4, not that it would be only pvp or mostly pvp. I don't remember them saying that.

They now gave us one example of what is coming. What part of this preview now makes you think that this is it? Honestly they said they were going to do some major things in 2.4 for pvp...they didn't say it would be pvp only or centric as far as I remember and again...these are not the patch notes. Ask questions for more information but these reactions about pvp only getting these extra warzones might be a bit premature.

Well at least that's something, and a good direction taken. Still I'm a bit worried about the new ops ; when I see how lazy you were lately, I'm not very confident (2 bosses in each and lots of trashes?). Again, we'll see, soon(tm).
Data mining suggests 3 new arenas.

Lol. Bioware, this should go to show you how hard it is to please everyone. I for one can't wait for 2.4 hoping that the new planet is kinda like makeb in that it will feel like a continuation of the class stories, and hoping that the 2new ops will lead directly off of the new planet, like toborros and s&v did off of makeb. Thanks for the details and please ignore the childish winers. This game is gonna hit 2years in november, and gotta say, the amount of content given us in just the last year is great. Hoping once the dread masters arc is done, (guessing in Oct., from names of the 2 new ops) that we will get act 2 of the class stories. Thanks again!

Because Bioware are good at setting our expectations high by announcing things in advance.

so the update you (bioware) have been hyping for the last ~2 months as being the best thing since sliced bread for PvPers, is going to be mostly about adding PvE content? please tell me that this is the most broad outline of an update ever.....


and new gear? again? ffs......
Paging Season 1 to the white courtesy telephone. PvP has been starved for significant improvements since preseason was announced well nigh over a year ago and you can't do a single release that is PvP only?

Does anyone want to lay odds that endgame bolster will still have bugs and there will be no rated WZ disconnect solution (e.g. allow reconnects like flashpoints and operations do)?

Obsoleting my Conqueror so I can regrind gear for all of my endgame toons again: FU BW.

.
BW *********** starves PvP of meaningful change (LOL endgame bolster) for over a year and BW can't make the PvE crowd sit out for even a single release so PvP can get some real man power working on it? F U all.

Add to this the PvP player aggravation watching BW play wack-a-mole with endgame bolster bugs when those same engineering resources could be doing something players want to see instead of a failed endgame bolster[*] that addressed a miniscule problem (n00bs in WZ with PvE gear rather than PvP gear).

What? The people who work on PvE content are not the same folks who work on PvP? Have them sit out of doing PvE content for one release cycle and learn a bit about PvP.

At the very least, the PR release above is a psychological kick in the balls to PvP players.

I mostly play PVE myself now a days but Bioware, you really gotta give some love to the PVP crew out there. I think everyone was expecting this to be a huge PVP overall of a patch but I see a ton of PVE related things.

I can only assume this change in direction was due to FFARR/ Wildstar MMO coming out in the near future? Don't leave the PVP's hanging on this patch, I mean they been waiting a while.

I am looking forward to the new content, especially Planet Oricon, but for BioWare's sake, I hope that...
A: These Arenas are *********** amazing.
B: Ranked Season 1 will be included. It has too!
Damn the fool who said history doesn't repeat itself, he clearly was not talking about MMOS.

  • New Operation: Dread Palace
  • New 4v4 Warzone Arenas
  • New Elder Game PvE and PvP Gear
So the much lauded 2.4 PvP Update is mostly an endgame PvE update with some PvP content thrown in? As a PvPer that has waited a year for some content, I'm supposed to get excited for 4v4 Arenas and a new PvP gear grind? Am I reading this right?

"This isn’t an exhaustive list, and we are also working on several longer term initiatives. As we get closer we’ll have a lot more juicy details on these and on what’s above. Keep your eyes peeled to the forums and SWTOR.com for more information"

Seems like just like in real life, no one reads the fine print.
