Bioware's Lack of Long Term Vision Is Doing Ilum a Great Disservice

While the event is good and all, Bioware's plan to make it temporary is not a service for what was once a ghost town. The event brought people back to Ilum. But when it's over, then what? It will probably go back to being a ghost town again.

Agree that Ilum will once again become a ghost town. Without a reason to go (rep grind/comm grind/credit grind), people won't go, especially as there are currently no rewards for PvPing in the open world.

It begs the question - what are they thinking? Why make this temporary? I get having events be rare - or even one-and-done sometimes - but considering this is clearly tied into their thoughts on bringing PvP back to Ilum, it really makes me scratch my head. I mean, we can still grind the other 3 reps out after the event, right?

I guess we'll see. I'm sure they have their reasons for this, but I can't figure them out for the life of me....

That's a bit meta: Illum has a Force Ghost.

Why Do You Use Capitals In Each And Every Word Of The Title, Except Articles?

Have you ever read the book called "The lord of the rings"? Spelled just like that? How about "A song of ice and fire" also spelled like that? How about "Star wars"? It's called a TITLE. Can't believe you didn't know that. Show me a title of written literature with only the first letter capped if it has more than 2 words.

Grammar police at the finest. "no one will ready"? At least when you try to troll grammar, don't make your own blunder.

Actually, you are pretty wrong here, in all of the titles you mentioned only the nouns are capitalised because it's grammatically correct in titles. So it's written 'A Song of Ice and Fire' , broken down 'A' is the first word in the sentence and 'Song', 'Ice' and 'Fire' are nouns. So your thread title would read 'Bioware's lack of long term vision is doing Ilum a disservice' because only Bioware and Ilum are nouns.

I've been thinking about this, just because the event is temporary doesn't mean all the quests will leave. I could see them leaving the 2 pvp quests all the time. Certainly the ship would leave though.

I want to be hopeful that Bioware thought this through past the event and may have some surprise for us....but...they've never surprised us in a good way yet
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.
