Contested in the Western Ice Shelf of Ilum means PVP. The western part of Ilum right now is PVP.
The entire planet of Corellia is "contested" .. so is Belsavis. Contested could simply mean sides vying for control. It doesn't necessarily mean PvP objective-oriented.

Fact is, until a dev comes out and SAYS what it is, or we play it, nothing we say will matter, so what's the point?

What makes you think there will be PvE content? Maybe the mobs and the whole event is just there to enhance PvP, not to be an PvE event.

When you play the game of PvP, you win or you die.

Dude the western Ice shelf was always a pvp area. It still is as I go there to get the valor boost like I used to do a year ago. All they day was remove the daily and weekly pvp quests in the area. They did not change anything else. If they put stuff in a pvp faction based objective oriented area that pvp level 50 players have been asking for almost a year, what would you call it?

I honestly think they should create a new map specifically for pvp and I hope that is what they do. As of now, the western part of Ilum is still open pvp. They could turn off that auto flag and have the area be pve now. The new pvp area will be a place you have to take a shuttle to just like black hole.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic anyday

And your Majority/Minority comment is completely wrong. They cater to the PVE crowd a majority of the time. What is wrong with 1 PVP event on the PVP planet?
I have been playing much longer then you bud fist off .... recruit gear is not free it costs you 350k in creds because you have to choose between 350k or recruit gear and if you hate PVP you are not taking the gear. ... Illum is not a pvp planet its got more pve then pvp on it and pvp has been dead on illum since they stopped kill trading for valor.

DO you even play this game? There is NO PVP PLANET IN THE GAME ... illum has a pvp area just like tattoinee does .. the difference Tat actually has a quick travel to it too ... which makes it MORE of a pvp planet then illum.
And no one goes there either.

The event is not PVP .... the reason it is not a PVP event is because this game is not a PVP centric game. THe majority are causal pve'ers sorry to say ... not raiders not pvpers .... that is a fact of MMOs especially free to play ones.

There goal is to get EVERYONE to participate in events PVEers which make up the majority will not enjoy or participate in a PVP event. AND normally that would be fine .... i agree with you no reason they cant have 1 pvp event.

BUT the problem with that is this is where we are getting the long time promised legecy lightsabers ... which means they would be FORCING people to PVP to get legacy weapons and gear. Which is something they have stated many times over would never happen.
Sorry to burst your PVP bubble but i have already explained and detailed what they did say and how it turns out that its not PVP at all...

but let me go further .... the game manager at Gamescom said that they would be rotating content in the F2P market .. raid one update ... pvp warzone in another .. event ... dailies ... all in rotation with no individual area getting more attention then another. The last update was PVP centric ... and they broke space combat so that made it even more PVP centric.

this event would be pvp if not for the big waste of 2 months in development warzone. Just saying ... its been a long time since we had PVE content added ... illum daily chain with BH com weekly makes ALOT more sense given what they actually said then a PVP event that isolates the majority of the games players for the sake of appeasing the left overs of the PVP community.

I am PvE only player and I would have no problems if this event was indeed PvP only. During the PvE events, PvPers were forced to either do PvE for a bit or pass any rewards. This time, if I'd have to pass the rewards (ain't no way to make me PvP), I will have no problems doing so. Can't please everybody.

Have fun beating each other! Go Republic!

it dierectly says NEW CONTENT ... which infers that it is a NEW area developed for the sake of NEW CONTENT which will also host the event.

AND where in that entire post does it say CONTESTED AREA?

Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree is coming soon to The Old Republic™, allowing players to experience brand new in-game content, including a limited time event and an exciting new way to progress your character.
•Explore the Planet Ilum to unveil a new Event, Relics of the Gree! A mysterious ancient Gree starship called “the Gray Secant” has appeared over Ilum’s Western Ice Shelf. Those who are brave enough will get the chance to help the Gree and face off against a powerful foe waiting in the heart of the Gree vessel. Republic and Imperial forces that finish this mission will earn exclusive Gree technology, including highly advanced weapon and armor appearances!
•Advance your character with the new Galactic Reputation system! The Galactic Reputation system lets you earn Reputation points by completing missions for factions such as the Gree or the Voss, or for military divisions within the Republic and the Empire. This new system advances characters through six ranks of increasing prestige: “Outsider”, "Newcomer", "Friend", "Hero", "Champion", and "Legend". Galactic Reputation is also tied to a character’s Legacy, so Reputation points and ranks are shared across all the characters within the same Legacy!

I'm not freaking out about it. If it's content I don't care to play, I just won't play it
