Anybody else think its a tad off that it took BW around 10 hours to say it wasn't real.I mean,couldn't they have just asked the GM in question if it was true?Now they have probably banned the thread creator,locked threads left,right and center,hoping this will all just go away.
Alot of people are saying its true and that pvp guild ussually participates in Open world pvp and is respected etc.
Is this the straw that will break the camels back?I mean if this turns out to be proven true..well,a whole lot of pvpers will leave this game in record time and probable never comeback.
Thoughts?

It was fake. Continuing to post it over and over and over and over and over and over again is akin to when my daughter would throw tantrums after being told no she couldn't have icecream for breakfast. Grow up.

I was not the original creator of the thread that everyone is getting pissed off about. I am simply clarifying that Bioware is sweeping this under the rug. Also, the image was condensed for the sake of context, the actual issue did happen and i posted all raw images.

IT'S FAKE.

First. BioWare Officials said so and deemed Kiro's post as fraud, and if they would be wrong they would be in DEEP LEGAL TROUBLE. Those crazy Americanos are really specialists in sueing around, so I doubt a big company would want to make such mistakes lightly.

Second. Only 2 players posted on this forums, however the Ops group in the screenshots indicate at least 16 others (and where are the republic posters?).

Third. No Screenshot of the actual GM with the "GM-Skin", even if Kiro mentioned that he appeared in virtual person.

he asked for thoughts. he didn't say caring was a prerequisite. so get bent.

on another note, if it is real i'm lol'ing at the whiners. it's perfectly cool for them to beat on someone who can't defend themselves but when someone bigger threatens to beat on them, their grapefruits turn into raisins.

I think it's more plausible that this issue woke some people up and took some people from their days off to investigate and respond to.

Cover up? Unlikely in my opinion.
Things to keep in mind:
A lot of people, especially the higher they are in a company have weekends off or at the very least are not working 24/7 or have access to systems 24/7. In companies they call this work life balance.
Most of the people you see responding on weekends are solely moderators and CS reps that do not have full access to investigate and give the answers to some of the questions we ask. Their job is to take the initial report, identify that it isn't something they can resolve first, and then send it to the person or team that does have the access or knowledge to resolve it.

I've been here since 08 and in game since EGA and I rarely ever see the dev tracker change over the weekends. It's usually week days so the 10 hour response, considering its a weekend and holiday weekend at that, is actually a pretty quick and understandable turn around.

Again, just my opinionated response to your post
Happy gaming!
