I'm dying for story content... I can't wait for Rise of the Hutt Cartel. (Sorry, I know this is off topic.)

You're horrible at communicating to the players. Please don't write another blog post. Clearly you have caused some serious confusion on what may very well be an excellent event for both PvP and PvE players.

Cheers,

I just want to know who was the moron who thought Free-for-all was a good idea? Now the PvP area is nothing but premades and griefers (I'm sporting WH / EWH even)...the stupidity is amazing.

I hate PVP. People will just exploit it and gang up on people in groups to further ruin it. Completely ruining their chance to get anything done. I only enjoy playing WITH others, not against others, or alone.

Way to go Bioware.

My anticipation for this just died. Pretty much everything they do now just turns me off.
Well btw but every event so far has been PvE not PvP. This event isn't "leaving you out" since you can still do it. If people are getting in groups and killing you, Get a group! Join a guild! I am a huge PvPer and have so far found warzones extremely fun but as of other PvP content there isn't much but junk. Adding Ilum stuff again can really change this depending how they go about it.

Honestly, being in a group doesn't make it easier when premades are running around like mad for no reason other than the stop you from doing the daily...there is PvP, then there is just griefers hiding under the [PvP] veil....
I say remove free for all i nthe enxt event if there even is one after this horrid excuse.

"An ancient and powerful Gree starship has suddenly appeared and touched down in the midst of the frozen battlegrounds of the planet Ilum. Launched by the Gree’s ancestors long ago to explore and study the furthest reaches of the galaxy, the fully-automated vessel has been hyper-jumping from one star system to the next for uncounted centuries, examining the planets it discovers and analyzing how their native species respond to various stimuli, from mild atmospheric alterations to direct attacks."

Ummmm...this is stargate universe where the ancients had sent out ships to plant stargates and research new systems in new galaxies. Didn't anyone else see that show? This sounds like a total ripoff of that exact story line, except without stargates and the ship was apparently manned by gree.

I understand your point but have to disagree. the groups I was in were giving as good if not better than we got. in fact when we disbanded I was still being targeted for rage kills by the poor little imp premades

the FFA part of this event can make it a bit of a PitA to clear some missions but an event with pvp elements makes for a nice change of pace and I'm mostly a pve'er with only some pvp tendencies.

anyway, so far it's a blast, and if the premades are griefing you, get a couple of 4 mans/ladies together and teach them the lesson they so richly deserve

Went home during lunch and jumped into the Ilum action. My Guild had the central pylon locked down and we were wrecking any and all Pubs that showed their face. It was a total blast! Can't wait to play some more tonight.
