Again, much like they force people who do not want to pve to pve? or how they force someone who is strictly republic to roll an imperial and visa versa? I really can't wrap my head around what is so gamebreaking about having to spend 5 minutes in a pvp zone... If you want the HK unit just do it and be done with it, if not then do whatever you were doing before yesterday. With so much in the game this is what you choose to complain about? BTW the amount of time it took some of you to type out your complaints or read others. you could have had the hk-transistor by now and been done with it.

Just because you don't understand it doesn't make it false. The truth is that people hate PvP enough that it IS an issue. Actually, they don't really hate PvP. They hate the people who partake in it because they make it a miserable experience.

Because people are more annoying than mobs. They also have longer aggro range.

CAUTION: DO NOT LOAD SWTOR UNLESS YOU HAVE AFTER-MARKET COOLING INSTALLED!!

Ik, but the whole point is you get flaged and I have seen people group up to 20 people waiting for any one to come in and try to get the item and just kill them over and over. So yea I get the whole point of this

I've already canceled and shifted my sub to a different game. Yes, I will avoid getting hit by the door on the way out.
I agree with this and Bioware can put another subscription on the cancellation listů.

That makes no sense. You're not forced into PvP. It's a choice. You want HK-51, then you need to go to a PvP area.

That's like complaining that you want to gain Valor, but you don't want to be flagged for PvP since you didn't roll on a PvP server (or you want the WH relics which were the BiS for PvE content). Guess what? You have a choice. To get HK-51 you'll need to enter a pvp zone for < 30 minutes. For WH Relics, you'll need to pvp for much longer. The choice is still yours. No one is forcing you to PvP.

They hate PvP enough that an optional companion requiring some PvP for a few minutes is worth quitting the game over? If they hate PvP more than they love HK-51, why are they complaining enough to quit the game? Either way, quitting or not pvp'ing, you're not getting HK-51... which means you're entitlement that you want what you want your way is the real reason you're quitting.

The requirement to flag can be minorly annoying, just get a few people together, grab your items, and if you die you die, its really not the end of the world.

Nothing wrong with just sucking it up.

The fact people will quit over something so trivial is more of a personal character flaw then anything else.


I'm not quitting over this (I mean, it's a companion quest requirement, not a class quest requirement--and easily skippable for those who don't want to do it). However, personally speaking, I wouldn't miss it if PvP was removed from the game entirely. There are plenty of PvPers that don't touch the PvE quests after they leave their starter planet. Some RPers spend lots of time creating their own meta-game without a lot of questing or PvPing any given day. Different people like to do different things. Accept it. It's better for your blood pressure.

Indeed. This is the prevailing problem of the day and describes many of the QQ threads (like this one) on these forums.
