Not what we were expecting Gree Event Pub and Imp ceasefire?

So today I got up in the morning going right to my computer to play swtor and an unexpected site greeted my sleep ridden eyes when I spawn in on my lvl. 50 marauder, Kyldor of The Ebon Hawk, on illum. Just yeserday relics of the Gree were released and the republic and imperial forces were in a ceasefire in the pvp area. Yesterday a great number of trolling pvp guilds met up and started killing people left and right. Today however there are words being exchanged between the two factions instead of lightsabers. To name a guild keeping the peace are Silent Council who have been doing a great job with ceasing the conflict, so lets give them a thank you when you see them standing around, they could have better things to do but they're trying to make your travels on illum safe. So are their guilds on other servers or on the Ebon Hawk that have been promoting the peace let? Are their other servers that have been at a ceasefire? Let me know in the comments below. May your travels on illum be filled with joy and snow.
There is no light, there is no darkness, there is only the force and those who can otherwise control it, or don't have the ability to do so.

I have not logged in yet today, but I know last night on Jedi Covenant the hard/medium core PVP guilds were out in full force taking out those that either A.) don't normally do pvp but want to do the event, B. Normally do WZ's but don't do RWZ, C. didn't realize they went through a pvp zone, and became flagged. With the new repair costs you will find me not likely to be flagged for pvp doing the event, I'll likely even skip the PVP area unless I know the hard/medium core pvp guilds are not in my instance.

Sure I like pvp, but I personally won't go and attack someone that is just trying to get the objectives done, unless attacked first.

Last night on Red Eclipse, people from both factions kept killing people from both factions.

There was a queue to the pylon last night on Ebon Hawk. However, there wasn't a ceasefire exactly as violence would sporadically break out. Any one not in a group would get yanked out of line and destroyed. Sometimes the rest of the queue would go to their defense, sometimes not.

At the end of the day this is player behaviour we are talking about. BioWare can't control people's inborn desire to work together or cause ****.

After a full day of getting ganked by all the troll guilds, The Harbinger became much more civilized and started an informal and mostly peaceful system of allowing groups to take turns using the pylons. One guy stunned me as I was capping the pylon and a small fight broke out between our groups until he admitted he started it and apologized! I really hope this proves to be the model for the future, griefers be damned! Some faith in humanity has been restored.

Begeren colony in instances 1 and 3. Pubs and imps worked together to form a line with approx 7 min wait. 5 or 6 moderators from either faction stood watch to stun or kill line cutters.
We even had a cross faction dance party while waiting.

It was awsome, as in instance 3, an imp guild was ganking every pub in sight.

I can see having a cease fire in the PVE zone, in case you got flagged accidentally or something. Though it seems odd that there would be a cease fire in the PVP zone. I'm not to surprised as it's Ebon Hawk, an RP server. Still, you would think a group of a few people would just start slaughtering people for the fun of it.

Time will tell. It's new and shiny, when it wears off there will be more killing.
