Also, the event will be on for whole year. So, even if you suck at PvP, but want to participate and get rewared from PvP zone, you have plenty of time to train yourself, getting good (or at least mediocre) in PvP is a matter of month at most...
People "freaking out" about reputation aren't freaking out because they "suck at PvP". But I'm not going to explain the issue again, just read the rest of the thread before you post.

we l i got high end system ( fx 8120 @4.3 gtx 670 and 8gb ram) but pvp is unplayable for me

JymmyMorison: Now that is strange... we have practically the same setup (just yours AMD instead of my Intel, although I did read somewhere that AMDs have some problems with SWTOR), but you get lags, and I don't. Have you got the game installed on SSD or normal HDD?

Good to see the word is out on 1.7, hope to see it on the PTS soon.

And as for the panic about PvP, I'd only worry if you were on a PvP server. With the Rakghoul Plague event, there was one world boss in contested PvP territory on PvE servers in the Outlaw's Den (also a free for all). Everything else was outside contested territory, so you'd only get ganked if you neglected to turn off your flag when a bunch of flagged players showed up. Other than the world boss I think there was maybe one item that you needed to venture into contested territory to attain (and I think that item may have been part of a different event). Otherwise, you could quest to your heart's content without the risk of sudden death.

I'd expect much the same in this update.

So is this "Event" Going to be "Fully Voiced" Or will it be thrown together in five minutes like your last event involving the gree?

Is that just too simple a concept to understand?
No, YOU obviously missed the point. If the area ends up being as described, and you're not versed in PvP, you don't go there. Simple as that. Do you miss out out on content? Yes. By YOUR choice.

Forcing people to PvP for PvE rewards and content is 'the point'. Nobody cares if there is PvP ALONGSIDE the PvE, we just care if we're forced to PvP, which is not what we want. If PvE content starts being given out as a reward to griefers instead of PvE players, that is not choice, that is PvE players being prevented from doing the content. So actually, YOU have missed the point... Again.

1. PVE should not be on PVP world !
2. Another grind put into the game why because other MMO's have it?? if you make this faction grind comes in the patch 1.7 have you considered the BH and Smuggler aas being the 2 classes that can be played with both factions? Bounty Hunter servers both Empire and Repiblic in BH missions. Smuggler being able to do the same.
What about flying craft remember the battles on Hoth ?? walkers republic speeders etc why cant they be part of a pvp world they can be bought or built by clans or whomever.
Clan bases on other planets this would give clans something to play for they could actually be part of the world this way.
Flying creatures as in Alderean extending skills things like that in other words adding content.

Really? Are you sure about that? How do you know it will be forced PVP for PVE rewards? I didn't see anything about the rewards on the update page.

It might even be that the Gree reputation is a PVP rep. With it all being gained through open world PVP missions, and the rewards for that faction may all be PVP based.

Of course, I play on an Oceania server, so having other players actually be in the area won't be a problem. It'll be more of a shock to actually see someone. I hope there's no PVP based missions. It'll suck having to sit around for days and days just to find someone to kill.
