This event has turned out to be a turd in the punch bowl because I get ganked by my own faction. Antagonistic players who garner enjoyment from hindering another player's ability to complete objectives is the essence of a Griefer. By making the Gree event a pvp encounter where everybody else (outside of your party) is your opponent, it has catered towards Griefers. The purpose of an online game is community, building ties not only within a guild, but within a faction. This event is counter to that very purpose.

I hate griefers but... how is it not building a community and ties when you can group with 3 other people?

This event and patch is a falure imo. Its crap like this that made the game go free to play so fast. Where is Pazaak? Where is character re customization? We unstead get time sink faction grinds that are locked with a max out. Shameful EA/Bioware just shameful.

I don't believe that 4 people make up a community or build ties.. But that is me..

Neither do 8 or 16.
A community is a much larger group of people (or characters) that have one or more common goals. An event, whether it's a PVP or a PVE event, cannot build a community that doesn't already exist.

I honestly have not had an issue with pvp while doing the pve quests. If you take the pvp quests, and go into the middle where it is a FFFFFFFAAAAAAAA zone( omg blew my mind it was that self explanatory) then expect people to want to gank you at some point in time. Don't cry about pvp in a pvp zone, there's a simple fix, just don't go there. And I'm sorry, Ilum filling up to 18 instances I would say that's building community, especially when I see more people in chat laughing and enjoying themselves rather then complaining about "griefers." Oh and I love it when one of those complainers come into general chat and you just see the stream of "LOL" remarks.

They just need to fix the mechanics for unexpectantly getting flagged while in a group because a healer is flagged and heals you or you are a healer and get flagged for healing a flagged dude.

This is by far the stupidest thing that could have been done for an event. It's a major grind in the first place but to allow a bunch of jerks to prevent you from completing the missions is inexcusable. Game Genie. Empire and a few other pop guilds have been scouting the pvp areas and actually charging players 100k credits to complete the mission or get destroyed. Shame on you BioWare!! You have catered to the pvp players since launch as it is. Nerfing classes to accommodate them left and right. You have left us that don't want to pvp or enjoy raiding out in the cold. I for one refuse to play and pay for a game that basically gives me and others like me the middle finger. Consider my sub canceled.

The community has declared shenanigans on the slot machine nerf.
Do you accept these charges of shenanigans?
