Doesn't make any sense from a story perspective.
It takes an hour or 2 to get a level 9 character. Not that big of deal.

I dont care what you call my post. Ill have this part of the quest done in 10 minutes. The rest of you babies will sit here and cry for months about it. Some of you will be smart and actually go try. Those that do actually go try will see they were crying about nothing.

A lot of the stuff that BioWare is coming out with is really dumb. If you didn't know better, you'd of thought it was Blizzard doing it.

BioWare has become so disappointing with this game.

This happened before on PVP servers when you did the Rakghoul Event in the dunesea. Now your making it so non pvpers can get trolled.
Yup, the vendor will be camped you can guarantee that.

I also find it amusing that some claim they will not do the quest if it goes live as is. Please, you would do it even if the quest forced you to dance the macarena naked with a 2 minute buff of rainbow sparkle powder in the outlaws den.
I guarantee you, I plan to unsubscribe on Nov 15th and will turn the game off until I can access the vendor without being flagged for PvP. If Bioware decides they don't want to/won't do this, meh, I can easily live without this game. There are plenty of other games out there that want my money.

I do think that by bioware adding in content that they know everyone is going to want and placing part of it in PVP territory is a terrible idea.

Those people choose a PVE realm for a reason. They do not want part in a free for all PVP environment. Creating content that in turn basically forces PVE players to PVP is a bad mistake.

It doesn't matter what BW had as good intentions or not.
It doesn't matter that the story is amazing.
It doesn't matter how good the companion is.

What matters is that at the end of the day, they created content most every player in SWTOR will want and int eh same turn basically force PVE players into PVP.

Thats what will be remembered.

If anything there could have been 2 avenues to get the same piece. One PVE orientated and one PVP orientated - The player gets to decide how they wanted to obtain the item.

And you are right though. There are plenty of other games that will take your money and it doesn't matter if there good or bad games. Bioware at this point in there game made a mistake by adding on content that blatantly pushes PVE players into a PVP environment. (and to a lesser degree PVP players into a PVE area)

I've tried to not be to hard on BW given this is there first MMO but BW deserves all the negativity they get on this one knowing there was such a easy work around.

Forcing PvP on PvE players is stupid.

Story based MMO that is completed in ----> PvE, with no need of PvP nor space missions.

In the drool dripping from some of the posters you can see those that will gank and grief while protesting that no such thing would happen, that they wouldn't do that, that you are whiny fearful "meat bags".

Stupid decisions, stupid moves, stupid directions.

BioWare is dead (APR 2012, R.I.P.) long live EA SPORTS :/

They are forcing PVE on PVP players as well so whats the big deal? I think its funny how some of the PVE players are crying about the PVP part. This is fair it requires a player to do both to get this companion that almost everyone wants. should be a easy to come by companion. Also they are not forcing you to go after HK-51 but if you want him you have to do the work required for him .
