Sweet. To be honest, it's not something that really bothers me, but that's a personal matter. A lot of people are upset about it, and then there are the people who have been using the exploit and using the "defense": it's not an exploit, it's just a flawed game mechanic!

Well, bud, that's actually exactly what an exploit is: when you knowingly and willingly exploit a mechanic that you know isn't supposed to be there. Here, we're talking about power leveling through pseudo-PvP, but plenty of WoW players have been banned for less.

As little as >1000 exp or >100 renown, with a bit of AAO that's 4-5 SC instead of 1 ORvR solo kill.

Emblems you maybe could farm a bit like this (although you'd get no medallions), but in all honesty you'd likely get more Emblems with a pre-made just by fighting.
For small groups it was more effecient than ORvR because you could control it. ORvR amounted to Zerging and eventually just Keep Trading.

I forget how much exp you got back then (pretty sure it was still very little).

But now and for a long time (2.5+ years) you get next to nothing for an SC that shuts straight down.

You can't do this in WAR.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

In terms of PvP this exploit is gamebreaking !
Wipe chars who did that.
Lockdown warzones till fix.
PvE server is for ppl who want play PvP on their rules. They choose place, time and opponent for duel. Is it so hard to understand that ? Damn I hate carebears.
