To my knowledge, Bioware's never said it was going to be a PvP revamp. I expect all PvP stuff on the western half of Ilum will just be removed outright.
  • It refers specifically to the contested area in the Western Ice Shelf.
    It comes on the heels of Jeff Hickman talking to 'some interesting changes to a special PvP area' as well as the Gree, and alluding to changes to the Western Shelf of Ilum in the same State of the Game blog.

It's PvP all right. The question is whether there are PvE objectives in there.

IM really exited about this event
want so see a lot of people on this event
but the problem is that the character transfer is not back yet
TBH im still on an US server then a EU server
Im willing to pay just to transfer my char. im tired of never doing ops or doing late night, early WZ's

Man I hope so. I almost never PVP mostly because I don't enjoy running warzones over and over but if there was some kind of objective... IE holding this position opens up the area boss or something like that then I would be down for that.

To your earlier question of why they like to gank, because you hate it. Some people want to watch the world burn, that's never going to change.

Because the ganking in the Rakghoul plague went over so well...

Unless the rewards are all PvP-oriented, this is a fail from my perspective. I absolutely do not want to be forced to PvP. While I can't imagine why ganking is so amusing to the PvPers who do it, it's not at all amusing to me. If, however, this is meant to be a PvP-only event, I can just skip it.
Maybe wait and see how it works....

Actually technically speaking Legacy was retroactive. The system to gain legacy experience was there on day 1. You could just not do anything with it at the time.
So comparing the 2 would not be good. Unless this is something Bioware has been planning on and held all this data in the background. I doubt this will be retroactive unless a simple script could get the necessary data from all of the other data it is on your characters.

Thank you Bioware for adding in Same Sex Story Arcs .^.

No, Ilum's Western Shelf is like the Outlaw's den - flagging happens when you enter, even on PvE servers. So if I have to go in there, I will be flagged. And then ganked.

Then don't go there. Or better yet, don't go there alone.

Feel free not to participate.
I, on the other hand, will be.
