What's the point of MVP points ?

What I originally thought was an excellent idea and something that separated TOR from other MMO games appears to be of little to no use at all. I was under the impression that it would unlock some sort of new vanity gear, vehicle, or provide a new title, if you got X number of MVP points, instead nothing.

Can anyone tell me what is the point of having MVP points ?

As far as I can tell, it's another wasted opportunity for this game.

You get more Valor/Experience/Comms for every vote you get.

They need to stay relatively insignificant. The current system works just fine.

That's a GREAT idea! They should do that.

You get 1 extra warzone comm per MVP vote, so the reward is that plus the warm, fuzzy feeling you get from knowing your teammates adore you. Or perhaps pity you.

I think it would be better if the titles/vanity gear/etc. was awarded for doing certain things. Like, just as an example in the cod games if you get 250 headshots with a certain gun you unlock the fall cammo for it, three knife kills in a row gets you an emblem, and killing someone while stunned with a flashbang gets you another one, etc.

Could be something like going over 500k damage/healing gets you a title or defusing 100 bombs on voidstar gets you an adaptive pair of those awesome agent goggles, etc.

So much potential.

You should research the MVP vote system that I have expressed multiple times. Then you can gain some understanding on what it originally meant versus what it means now.

This.
Had two "in the zone" WZ's last night where I was just getting objectives left right and centre along with having a high amount of damage and some healing thrown in for good luck.
Unfortunately on both occasions I was with teams of "friends". The premade 4 all voted for one another and there were another couple of reciprocated votes.

I no longer have any interest in the MVP voting.
