And totally agree with what DarthVengeant just wrote!
You can still use the trophies AFTER the event and they've already said that the vendor will be sticking around.

So they are being clear, you just need to read a couple pages of the dev tracker to get relevant info (they need a better search engine).

You're wrong, the event will be back and you can get your lightsaber.

It'll be back, and nobody will reach Champion whether they subscribe or are F2P. They've already said it'll be back multiple times throughout the next year - I would focus on building your rep through dailies on the other planets for now!

You can also get Legacy gear right now via the Gree for pretty cheap, and it's bound to legacy...

While I agree it sucks that nobody had the chance to reach Champion, and that they should have said something, they have fully intended on letting us complete these quests over time.

I am very disappointed. This event left a bad mood.

I agree with what I have read thus far. I love this game however, the previous 2 world events rakghoul plauge and the grand aquisition Race did not require anywhere near as much time and grinding. I was able to aquire all the exclusive event related gear that I wanted, solo and on lower level characters with minimal time and effort. This event was extremely time consuming with little to no payoff. It offered no reward for solo players, was exclusive to 45-50 players and I still have not recieved the reward for my efforts, mainly the Gree lightsaber (legendary to swap hilts finally) or the guardian armor located on Belsavis.

I understand that the event will return in the future, I just hope that other world events to come will not require as much cooperative play or the extreme amount of grind time for such a little (to no) reward.

Tired and disappointed.

Indeed, imagine if this was an MMO where it was needed to play with eachother.

How DARE BW, make an event that requires any form of communication or cooperative play! ^^

To be honest, for me it wasn't a real event. It was a generic daily hub with a temporal access.
Raghoul Outbreak was a much better example of how an actual event should look like, and here is why.

First, it started unexpectedly for us. Yeah, it may be a bad thing for some of us since they are not given a chance to plan their game time beforehand, but on the other hand this is what made many other people excited.

Second, it wasn't just about dailies and world bosses, a brand new and unique (for this game) mechanic was introduced, which added a lot to the fun factor.

Third, it was much less grindy. Save the grind for your time consuming daily hubs, not for a short-term event, even if it's recurring.

Fourth, it had a sense of progression. Something new was added every day while the event was active. This is one of the major things that separates an actual event from your ordinary daily hub.

Fifth, you could get all the rewards by doing stuff solo. Seriously, not everyone enjoys grouping and socializing here in any other way but raiding and/or PvP. An attempt to forcefully make people socialize will just cause frustration and turn them away since it's an undesirable experience for them.

Sixth, maybe that is just my opinion, but still. I'd prefer a one-time event to a recurring one any day. Why? Mostly because of the rewards. In a one-time event, you can get something that won't be obtainable later, something exclusive and therefore valuable to you. In a recurring one, however, you realize that eventually everyone will obtain the same rewards you get, and this knowledge has a big potential to devalue them in your eyes. Additionally, one-time events give you a pleasant feeling that you've taken part in a history of the game. I still enjoy remembering how i played during both Rakghoul and Chevin events, how i was a part of the game's history. But i don't feel anything like that about the recent event, and never will, because it will pop again and again in the future.
That doesn't mean i'm against recurring events in general, on the contrary, i see them as a nice way to make repeatable content. I'm against them only when they affect one-time events in any way, especially when they completely replace them.

Will the World Bosses still be up? If so, you should still be able to farm rep, just not the Helix needed for weapons.
