Bestia grind is for XP up to level 70. Bestia's adds never gave cxp.

They have already addressed this as a proplem..

Hey folks,

We have been reading the feedback since Tuesday regarding the removal of the Dark vs Light Achievements and we understand the frustration this has caused. With that in mind, we are looking into options for having those Achievements restored in some way (it may not be exactly how they were when you earned them). We should have more details to share next week! We just wanted to ensure that you know we are hearing your frustration around this issue and are looking into solutions.

Thanks!

When can we expect the galactic command system removed from the game?

Victim blaming....nice approach

Of course since the bestia adds give 0 CXP, you're incorrect. So who else would you like to blame it on other than BW?

Indeed. This expansion was such a mixed bag.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the story. Perfection.

I absolutely despise Galactic Command. I am just not into it at all. I am actually avoiding it. I didn't even bother with DvL. I am not going to grind for HUNDREDS of hours. Just not doing it. I will settle for suboptimal gear until 6.0.

instead of building this horrible system, they should have created two new ops, mixed around the gear bosses drop and done what they always have. That was a workable system. Guilds could operate that way. This system is just horrible.

Translation: "Don't break our toy! We know it's crappy, buggy, fragile and unbalanced, but we will be VERY angry if you break it! Don't even breath in it's direction! Or you WILL be punished!" Which we currently ARE. I was ready to give this RNG loot a fair try... Until you went and nerfed in to the ground the only activity in it I enjoyed and that revitalized the day to day gameplay somewhat.
You know what? I'm now of the opinion that it deserves to crush and burn and we ARE better off with the previous loot system. So +1 to removing your "fragile, precious garbage" all together.

Remove the Galactic Command system! it's bad and forces us to do stuff Bioware wants, not what we want. It's very bad. This was not supposed to be Knights of the Eternal Grind

OK, so... I have yet to delve into Galactic Command, but people finding the quickest way to reach a very high Command Rank cannot be an issue. Finding the quickest way to reach an objective is the very reason many people play games. Some guy is going to do what the developers intended to take a couple of months in a few days, because that's just what happens. The way to discourage people from doing this is by making sure there are ways to get valuable rewards other than grinding. If grinding is the only way, then sitting down to farm mobs for 12 hours straight suddenly becomes a very appealing, and actually kind of very reasonable, option.

While I don't like this change either, I can see why they made it.
In a game so intensely geared towards solo play, creating a system where solo players can't advance as fast as groups is not the smartest of ideas, I would think.
Referral links in signatures seem to be fairly standard, so I got one.
