We don't know enough about what is going to happen, everyone is jumping to conclusions about what its going to entail. We should be looking for ways to make sure everyone can enjoy the event. It's what they should be for.

It's supposedly the RvR relaunch which makes it PvP really.

Having said that the other events (Rak and scavenger hunt) were PvP........... on a PvP server.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

If BioWare want to encourage more "organic" PvP in contested areas, as State of the Game #2 outright states, they really need to scrap the Expertise system and work on maximizing PvE and PvP gear compatibility.

Deep into that darkness peering, you reach out your hand and grasp what you are searching for.
Now ring the bells that sweep away the darkness; the bells that beckon tomorrow's dawn.

WAR did it, but that's one of the few level based games I've seen do it, but then WARs endgame was RvR, not dragon raiding PvE, unlike SWTOR.

I can't see how SWTOR can exist without a PvP stat anymore than WoW could.

Definitely not a strong patch. These new sticks need better carrots.

This is why a lot of people don't pvp is because of attitudes like this. You do understand that people have different interests, I hope, and that pvp is just one aspect of the game. Some just want to pve. Some like to roleplay and some like to pvp and then you have some that like to do all it.

But calling someone a chicken is a little rude and uncalled for. Just because someone doesn't like to pvp doesn't give you the right to call them names.

I have no problems if this event is for pvprs. From my reading there are ways to avoid it if you wish. What I do have a problem with is people calling other people names just because they don't like something.

Everyone needs to learn to show each other a little courtesy and learn people have different styles of play and each set of players should have fun their way without the name calling and attitudes.

This is Islander, look at his other posts... he tends to call people names or put them into categories just because he dont shares their points of views...

actually i want to see him ( ingame ) getting fragged by his own faction.. then i wanna ask him if he enjoys....

Like I said, the classic entitlement malaise that has infected this nation over the past 20 years. It's embarrassing.

People aren't subscribing to play their specific way. They are paying for improved access and features. There once was an era where every little thing in MMOs wasn't spoon fed to you when one cried like a baby at every inconvenience. It was a good time. F2P and the proliferation of countless MMOs have not only dilluted the product overall but also diluted the behavior of its player base.

it's just sad. Go earn credits, in the time it took the OP to post, (s)he could've easily earned 15--20k credits.
The OP's guild name is all too fitting for this thread, in my view.
oh yes.. and people already have declared him being an "obvious troll" oO
