This is getting really old really fast and frankly I am getting to the point where I just wana walk away from the game.

How did you guys sit down and say hey I got a great Idea. Let make an event in a PvP area for PvE servers and then force PvP down our players throats? I am truely getting sick of limited time events that seem to be created with no other goal in mind then grieving players.

I was in a group doing the heroic PvE daily. Guess what a pile of toolbox Flagged Pubs come running up and jump into the AoEs we are using on the mobs in a PvE fight in a PvE area to flag us and kill us thus stopping our group from being able to complete our PvE missions. Great Job BW letting player screw others and prevent them from progressing.

I am happy you made some PvP and some PvE the idea was great however you failed to keep the player in control of what they want to do. If I wana do just the PvE mission well guess what I cant cause I have to worry about toolboxs waiting around to flag and kill me with bugs and exploits.

And great job changing ilum into a giant PD free for all. Casue there nothing that screams 2 factions at war like getting ganked by your own side.

Cartel packs rly I mean rly? Did you just lanch a pack with all the items you had removed that nobody wanted from the packs b4 and call it new. Every "classic" item was already in other packs and removed. But now you got them taking up space and chances for anything new.

And btw changing the color doesnt mean its new.


What a Joke.

I have to agree that no matter how when you are not flagged for PVP you should not be able to get flagged unless you turn the flag on or heal/rez/help a friend who is flagged.

Anyway the quests are boring and not worth doin more than once and the pvp quest are boring not worth doing more than once so overall not really missing much in regards of content.

1.thought they fixed flagged aoe ages ago... if you didn't target them and got flagged, you should report.
2. boo hoo, you don't have to do event. there is pvp quest at fleet terminal, but no one is forcing you to go WZones to finish it...
don't like this event? don't participate. don't like cartel market prices? don't buy there.

Tbh I'm kinda expecting the patch today will address the same faction pvp as anyone in their right mind can see this is utterly ridiculous

You thought wrong. They didn't fix it. I thought this was known by everybody. It certainly is known by griefers.

Yesterday with tried to kill one WB, the one on the east. We were like 12, 13 and specifically got all us unflagged before we moved. Found an instance with the boss and pull. Moments later, a huge group of reps all flagged showed up. Nothing happened until the boss spawned adds, and ofc dps use their aoe's. Reps got in there, got the dps flagged which then made the healers flagged, etc, etc.

Pro-Tip, don't use AOE's, and make sure any companions you have out if any have their aoe's turned off and you won't get flagged. Any time I am anywhere that there is the chance an AOE might hit a flagged player and get me flagged, I don't use it. It doesn't reduce my damage output by that much and I have no problem being able to kill anything I need to kill.

In case you are wondering, I don't generally PvP and am strictly PvE geared and I have had no problem completing any of the quests in the Gree section of Ilum that didn't require me to enter the FFA PvP zone (and I did those quests as well and... got ganked a cpl times but still had fun).

It wasn't AOEs that got your DPS flagged. Your DPS were mindlessly tabbing and mashing buttons. You can tab target yellow players just as you can tab target yellow NPCs/MOBs. If you single target attack them because you are mashing buttons, you will begin combat with them and flag just as you would begin combat with a yellow NPC/MOB.

In fairness, it's really easy to screw up if you're treating a flaggable zone like an Op or FP where you can just hit tab and know that you will target the next trash/add spawn and continue attacking without missing a beat. And once one DPS does it, healers are pretty much screwed.

Nope, just addressing the people who are understandably not happy with the FFA PvP expressing themselves in chat.
A classic sig that should not be lost:
