You dont see non pvpers complaining about that you cant get pvp gear from pve areas. Furthermore pvpers have the elite war-hero gear which is the same as the black hole/dread guard is for non pvpers?
So why force non pvpers into an area that is specific to pvp for legacy bound gear ?
OK rant is over but seriously why ? ?

would it have been so hard for them to put the pvp missions in pvp area and put some pve missions in a pve area so both sides of the coin are happy pvpers and non pvpers ? Then by keeping the rewards the same for both sides one side doesn't out weight the other in rewards offered ?
It is a pvp focused event they tried (and failed as i predicted) to revive illum pvp. Though I do agree they couldve placed some pve missions that help progress towards the gear out of pvp areas in order to include those who hate PvP. Even if it is a PvP event.

Overall I like the event for reasons bw didn't intend.

My community on my server came together and made this event fun!? Yet again the community fixes what BW breaks... *cough wpvp, rp etc...*cough*

But overall it gives me reason to go to illum for some semi interesting gear, fights, rp... yadda yadda. Though I don't like the same faction fighting.

I also don't think everyone is entitled to a title or gear. That mentality is actually what diminishes the game and I sigh whenever I see people dressed the EXACT same way on fleet.

So if you want everything out of this event (remember, only some of the quests require PVP) prepare yourself for it with the FREE GEAR YOU GET AT 50 and make yourself useful in a group. Literally, you can complete every quest associated with this event with 2 people. Go SLIGHTLY outside your comfort zone.

And if you don't want to do the above, I specifically with every fibre of my being hope you don't get the gear or titles or anything associated with the event (because you'll have done nothing).

P.S. It becomes a PVP when a PLAYER attacks (VERSUS) another PLAYER. Stop making up ludicrous definitions.
LOL this is funny
its not do able when you have groups of pvpers that camp areas that are needed to complete some of the missions so when you go into the area you click on the thing for the mission and during your combat you have 4 or more groups just sitting there waiting for you to hit them then they jump you cause you use an aoe on your target that flagged you up and then you die almost instantly being raped by multiple people

Its really not PVP on a PVE server.
Just don't AOE..

The forum sounds like a bunch of 5 year olds getting PVP flagged because they were AOEing a enemy.
Funny thing I said once I got onto SWTOR yesterday morning before all the people realized the servers were up, "All the people are probably too busy complaining on the forums"

Your not required to do the PVP aspect of these quests.
If you get PVP flagged because of an AOE, well then thats your fault.

If you don't like not getting reputation from PVP events, get another character and re-do the quests on him for more reputation. You people gotta realize not everyone is going to get reputation the same rate, so quit complaining like your missing some important aspect of the game.

A PvP mission is:

- Kill X players (!)
- Capture and hold a place for a given amount of time while everyone knows that you are here
and so on.

There's none of these. The only one quest I consider PvP is the orb thing, which is a kind of CTF. The rest is all about killing mobs or getting drops from mobs, that's PvE. The area you are playing in doesn't make a quest PvE or PvP, in that case on a PvP server every quest would be considered a PvP quest. A quest itself is PvP or PvE, period. The area has no consequence on it.

Just because BioWare says it is PvP doesn't mean it is. Heck none of these quests give valor, I think that says a lot.

here are some facts you ALL have ignored and are causing alot of this issue.

the quote says nothing about pvp at all



where in all of that does it say PVP?

NO WHERE ... .let me explain what it DOES say

1) the foes we are facing are either Gree or enemies of the Gree
2) It takes place on the planet of illum in a new area called "Ilum's Western Ice Shelf" like section X or BlackHole
3) Both republic and Imperials will have access to this same area like black hole and section x
4) both republic and imperials will have different looks and named tech to encourage cross faction involvement
5) Bioware has stated MANY TIMES that people will NEVER BE FORCED TO PVP ... even in the HK parts issue you dont have to pvp ... you just have to run to the vendor buy the thing and leave.

finally ... PVPers have to really start thinking with there heads and not with there epeen. The majority of players in this game have no interest what so ever in PVP. The majority rules when it comes to MMO companies cause they dont care if they lose the minority cause there spots can always be filled with more of the majority.

As someone who hates PVP ... and does it quite a bit anyway for PVE gear and crafting matts... I can tell you no one is going to buy recruit gear for a freaking Event. No one is gonna PVP just cause there is an event ... no one is gonna love this game more for being ganked cause sorry to say even with recruit gear your not going to achieve objectives against people in full warhero unless the objective is to die alot.

WAKE THE HELL UP .... stop trolling ... stop being ignorant to the truths of this game .... and please realize for petes sake that PVP is not the be all and end all of this game..... PVE is ... sorry to say.
