Wild Gree Event Speculation

The event will occur every major patch and will be on a different planet each time with a different quest set.

- The Gree ship is working its way through the galaxy examining different planets.
- It doesn't make sense that the same ship would keep examining Ilum.
- Same planet with same quests every time would get old
- There are 8 or so planets that are concurrently accessible to both factions.
- The devs mentioned revising old planets.
- We're supposedly on 6 week content cycles.
- It would take roughly 1 year to visit each of these planets if one is visited every six weeks
- Major patches would be incredibly convenient for deploying the event changes each occurrence

It might turn out to be every other major patch due to a combination of not every planet getting visited and attempting to stretch out the duration longer.

Nothing to back this up other than trying to make logical sense of the Gree ship's mission.

Thoughts?

As awesome as that would be, I doubt it.Though they could run it and repeat the cycle each year, that's the rough equivalent of 8 daily zones of content. Don't think they could get that done while also working on the regular content patches.

It would be a great idea as long as its "in addition to" the regular cycle of content.

A more likely scenario is that the event will "recur" any time BW falls short of their 6 week update promise.

The assets for the ship, gree, and what not should be reusable. So, it would most be a matter of tweaking a map area on a different planet and writing 7 kill/gather quests. Seems doable to me.

Daily missions or the ability to re-do flashpoints and operations doesn't make sense either and it does get old. Repeating stuff is kinda common practice in MMORPGs or indeed any game though.

I can't see them moving the event to other planets without having to do re-designs every time they do and, without complaining too much, it doesn't seem likely they'd do such a thing given the track record. I imagine they could add/change quests and available rewards, mix things up a little, but the event will probably stay on Ilum. No reason they can't do something with the Gree faction on other planets too though.

That would be really cool - but way too much work to ever happen.

I really like the thought of this. I hope that's what they're doing. This would be a great way to bring PVP events to all of those old planets we miss.
