Thank you for having an event.

I'm not liking the over-reliance on dailies for events, but Xeno is a fun fight and the world bosses are pretty cool. New armor and weapons in a style different than we've seen before is a plus.

I'm going to be nostalgic for a moment and remember the dozens and dozens of well-deserved "awesome event!" threads for the rakghoul event (with the couple rare complaint threads), but any event is better than no event, so thank you.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I'm glad there is finally something for the PvP community, they really have been on the short end of the stick.

That being said I'm not a PvPer and for me this event was the worst of the three. I recognize and am OK with the fact that not every piece of content is targeted at me, but I hope this isn't the only event that get's put on a rotation. I would love to see the Rak'ghoul event put on a similar rotation, that was my favorite (and it had some PvP aspecs too :-p)

Can't say that I enjoyed it, as I really didn't have a chance to partake in it. I am just getting to a high enough rank to possibly partake in it and even visit Illum. I am also still not geared enough for any such PVP, for those parts of the event that are PVP.

So I spent my time still doing my Class quest trying to level up and also leveling my other character.
I did kill some Gree Driods in a cave on Tatooine, but nothing came from that encounter. That and just visiting Illum from do to interacting with that News Terminal on Fleet was the only interaction that I had with the event.

My opinion is that I would prefer them to make events that all levels of characters can join in on in some way shape or form. Not everyone is going to have high level characters. Especially for new players. Kind of sad really. At least in my opinion.

You know I sort of had the same problem with the Grand Acquisitions Race. Even though I was able to do some of it, at that time I was not a high enough level to finish the rest of the missions for it before the event was over. Basically what happened was at the end of the event I had just leveled enough to try and finish it yet it ended and I was left with uncompleted missions that I had to abandon. Go figure.

OH Well. Maybe I will be able to join in and complete the next event as I am getting close to the end of my leveling for my first character. That is if they have another event.

Because I don't PVP, I don't have good PVP gear. i am at a disadvantage. I really thought I rolled my characters on a PVE server for a reason.

Plus I have to PUB TANK Xeno OPS HM to get enough Helix to get anything >200K in repair bills getting zapp'ed because the Pubbers DPS was not high enough to bring down the cube before tank gets one hit killed, we never finished that one... This is clearly a PVP event meant for large guilds only. Small guilds or Pubs need not apply.

Gear is for LVL 45+ only = Fail
Gear will not work on companions like other events = Fail
Have to do OPS to get enough Helix before event end = Fail
Ganking and Griefing from degenerates = Fail

Thanks Bioware You have a failing grade from me..

/signed.

It was the reason I came back after an 8 month long hiatus, and it was really worth it. Hopefully this will be the start of something big.

Let the naysayers keep on rabbling - This is a very important feature for this game. Oh and: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gSQg1i_q2g

On the flip side, many players will say it wasn't all that. Had it been all that great there wouldn't of been so many complaints from players on PVE servers about being forced into PVP in order to run the event.

This is not the first time BioWare makes the same mistake. You would think that after the last event and the many complaints that event gathered, they would of listen, but in true Bioware form, once again, they do what they want regardless how players feel.

I been up there 4 times and only the first time I got flagged on purpose. The other 3 times, I went solo, ran some of the quests and never got flagged or was attacked. I think many players could do the same but haven't been able to stay away from becoming flagged.

But looking at it from their perspective, their complaints are valid. What's not valid is BioWares rational.

I've enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Ignored it the 1st day. Then gave in and checked it out on the 2nd. Been looking forward to another run each day since. Even the PvP quests. Which is something I don't do much of. Rather than hating it like I thought I would, I kinda like the added element of danger in that area.

Each day those quests play out a little bit differently for me. I think that's what I find the most interesting about it. Unlike the usual PvE dailies that are nearly identical runs day in & day out, these include possible FFA chaos at any moment. I've often had to adapt to what's going on around me to complete those quests. Some smooth runs with little to no issues. Others taking multiple attempts & deaths before finishing. While that can be frustrating at times, it's certainly not boring.
