[QUOTE=JoeeyyMagzz;5821856], 1.7 adds a brand new monthly World Event with PvE bosses.[ /QUOTE]

This is what bothers me. There are times when I am really busy. For example, during the last world event I was in Mexico for work. I missed the whole thing. I'm annoyed every time I see those bind-to-legacy weapons. Now, another world event is coming, and in two weeks I'm moving to Taipei for a bit and probably won't be able to play much. In fact, I've never taken part in a world event yet, because they are so short. (Has there been 1 or 2?)

It's not like we have so many events that we need to shorten them; Let the world event last for 5 months. Give us a chance to play it!

Don't be a ******... this is a much needed and wanted update.
Then why not give us a blog about the revamped ilum pvp? this reputation system is nothing but carrot-on-a-stick filler for grind donkeys. And they aren't even using fresh carrots. This whole proposed system is garbage. If having reputation with a given faction meant something beyond a title and "some kind of gear" it would be way more impactful. Give each faction a collective reputation. Allow us to actually sway Voss and Gree sentiment, and then give us meaningful rewards for doing so.

Not to mention that the only new content that even seems to be included in this reputation system is whatever crazy crap they come up with for the gree/ilum pve event. This is grasping at straws, hoping people are dumb enough to think the new wrapper isn't hiding the same ****.

The whole blog just made this update feel really weak. Quick, give us some good news, because this certainly doesn't make me want to keep playing.

PvE bosses inside the PvP area you mentioned. Yeah, we all really want to get harassed while PvEing....

Adding a minor (and probably half-arsed) grind to a game is not new content. The items on the vendors will not be new content- if you think they will be I truly admire your amazing optimism...

This is not a much needed or wanted update. Let's not pretend it is. At all.

I'm slightly worried that you may be right...

Two so far - one was the one where you got the Containment suit and the red rackghoul pet, the second you could get the Sandtrooper set and bind to legacy crossbows - which opened the possibility to move barrels around toons.

The only thing missing is a saber now.

They also had some really vague statements like : "we might or might not bring vendors back sooner or later, to use tokens" - which was partially true, as they kept the second event vendor up for one more week or something... or the Jawa from 1st... one of them... if memory serves right, that is.

So I am looking at another senseless grind for no rewards other than titles?
I'm legacy level 50 and Social X, what have you gave us Bioware for achieving that?
Nothing for legacy and a mindless party bomb.
The only reason I am still a sub is because this is the only Star Wars MMO.
Give us rewards for Legacy 50 and Social X, before you even try to introduce another grind fest.
