I checked it out when I first heard about it, loved it but hated myself for it.

Because of the affect it had overall in warzones, being that I am a healing operative, I chose to unequip it on my own accord because it ruins my pvp experience as a player. It's also apparent that it is ruining the 4-5 people focusing me like they should be. I look forward to a fix.

Just wanted to say what most people are already saying, get rid of the proc relics, bring back static stats. I would much rather have a larger static bonus damage, than a 6 second every half minute or so spike.

It was day one and I saw a player using it and tried it. Then I saw posts about it and was waiting for a response from the dev. The response given is open to interpretation but don't agree with it so I choose not to use it. They will fix it and all will be fine. It's the time taken that is slow but isn't a surprise at this point in this games existence.

Regardless, they know about it and that's all I wanted. Glad they are looking into it.

Because of that we are going to just leave it in place as is and then work to get it fixed ASAP.

Do you know what ASAP means Eric? It means as soon as possible. Aka working 24/7 through the weekend and holidays to get it fixed.

In my line of business we would do that if something as drastic as this was affecting our clients.

Not dilly-dallying on a solution and pretending to care.

Don't make promises you can't keep Eric.

It may be difficult to differ between pvp tanks who bought the relic, either intentionally knowing it was bugged, or just because they're a tank and were going to use it, but it's fairly obvious when a dps or healer have it equipped that they're abusing its use.

Yep. And there are tons of people who are willing to brag about it, or advertise on fleet to tell other people to abuse this bug.

Does this fall into the "unaware they were using a buggged item" category BW? Poor logic is poor.

Instead of banning people why not just deactivate this relic or remove it from the game until you fix it?

Sorry I guess that is too much like common sense, lets wait until you royally piss everyone off first in true idiotic style.

Hundreds of thousands? Ha! Wishful thinking. More like tens of thousands, maybe.

Too easy and then you'll get the "well I want my commendations back" like they are even remotely hard to obtain.
