Have fun beating each other! Go Republic!
I do have an issue if legacy lightsabers are not obtainable any way but through PVP ...... if there is a major element that is PVP focused it will just turn into kill trading anyway ... its what killed illum in the first place....

also I'm i not remembering correctly ... didnt damen and erik already state that they where doign something completely new with illum and it wouldnt have the pvp aspect anymore.... god i wish i could remember then quote or what video it was stated in.

I completely forgot about that you could have companions die in beta lol

AND where in that entire post does it say CONTESTED AREA?
That's not my quote, that's the companies quote. Right from this link ...

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.
Just thought i would mention that they took out the token from the game , so you now don't have the option to take the money and run. I would have taken the money on a few characters myself. Mind you now you can take your 99 tionese crystals and then use some of the pvp recruit gear to make up your wrist and belt armor , until you get better or as someone else pointed out for your NPC.

I'm going to use the wait and see approach and if need be I will sprint through the PVP area to get to w/e it is I'm trying to get too , if that makes sense. Mind you if the rewards are PVP rewards then I might skip it.

Cheers,

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 dont know that i would classify Ilum neccesarily as a PvP planet. I dont think its any different than Tattooine, a planet that has a PvP area.

What I am wondering about is where the information about the event being PvE-only came from? Or do people really believe that BW cannot make PvPvE?
The same goes to the Reputation system, people freaking out it will be only attainable through PvP

And, what is more important, nobody knows anything about it, except a brief concept text and few pictures. However, the extremely complex and catastrophic scenarios are abundant

By that logic, the first 2 events was forcing PVE on PVP players, if a PVP event is forcing PVP on PVE players.

And I would really love to hear your reasoning of how PVP is forced on PVE players more than PVE is for PVP, when you can play the entire game without ever doing any PVP, but it is not true the other way around.

Well this might be true now. It was a PvP planet back when you had a weekly and daily in which you had to kill players but that turned into a big mess eventually.

To the topic. I really could care less about PvE. My guild has more PvE players and I have filled raid spots when they were short and aside from doing the dailies in the black hole I just PvP. I can see how a PvE player might get discouraged from going to a zone that will flag you for PvP when you are rolling with 0 expertise and have limited knowledge on fighting other players. Honestly the information that has been leaked on 1.7 is very, very limited and don't think anyone should be jumping to conclusions.

Also about the "I don't want to have to partake in PvP to do something that is PvE". While I can somewhat agree with you I see some complaints about acquiring HK and needing to go to outlaws den, getting "forced" to PvP. If a PvP player wants this droid they will need to do more PvE then I'm sure most would like so its kind of a double standard imo.
