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.
This entire discussion is theoretical. Nobody knows for certain. But from what we know it's quite likely it's a PvE event (as I pointed out to some other guy, you should look at the screenshots- That Wampa isn't wearing any PvP gear at all! -_o).

There's a typo in your thread. You're missing the ™ on "soon!"
I didn't think anything could top the stupidity of no new group content in Fallen Empire...

...then Level Sync happened.

That was answered on the update page for the event. There will be.

Can't see how that's a PVP objective unless the Devs plan to be there to kick someone's face in.

You made the point I made in earlier posts much clearer. Hopefully this will end the "we don't know if it will have PvE aspects" garbage.

Aries_cz thx for reply I got the game installed on normal hdd, but i suspect its just that this game hates amd cpus ( i knew i had to go for intel), was wondering about ssd performance differences aswell since i got one laying around somewhere,dont ask why. I never was able to find any comparision for this game between ssd and normal hdd performance.

I can't wait either. Ilum has been needed fixing for a long time and I hope they don't water this down because of the whines of a few carebears.

I'm sorry, but you PVE only folks have had MORE than enough content geared towards you this past year. Every daily on Ilum, Belsavis , Black Hole and Section X is PVE only. The only quest line for people that like both is the HK one. It would take a LOT of new content being produced to catch up with you. We're being thrown a bone here. Finally. You're also making assumptions because we have no idea what the rewards are.

Do you understand yet what the issue is, or are you going to say (again) that your group has as much right as others to the same content (because if we start down this path, then we will need to offer another special reputation grind system in a purely pve area, perhaps involving petting rainbow unicorns and escorting them across a field of flowers, to put off the pvp lovers and make them start writing up equivalent protest posts).

Put simply, this content actively excludes an entire group of people who might otherwise like the rewards and the grind, if it wasn't for the location of this content.
No it doesn't. You have what's called a "CHOICE." Same for people like me who hates grouping. I can't stand random pugs. Guess what? That means I miss on all the content and rewards that come with doing flashpoints and operations. I don't mind. You know why? Because I realize that there is a lot of players that do like it and it would be selfish of me to gripe every time a new flashpoint or operation came out. You have an entire new planet coming out in Makeb for your non-PVP/easy win needs and you will still have the most content in game geared towards your play style. Stop being selfish.

You're playing a PvE game, complaining that PvEers get more content than PvPers is a pretty stupid complaint to make. People don't want mixed content, it wasn't asked for and the dozens of things that have been repeatedly asked for are still not in-game. PvE rewards for PvP content is a huge design flaw which, if they foolishly go ahead with, will just lose them more players- PvPers will have little use for the rewards, PvEers won't be able to get them because a gang of morons is almost certainly going to sit around all day preventing people from playing the game.

And if you don't like grouping, go play something else? Grouping is a key part of online gaming.
