don't like this event? don't participate. don't like cartel market prices? don't buy there.
I agree, Im kinda over reading people whinging about this stuff.

The cartel packs for Season 1 are a trial. To see how well they go. Of course they are going to try out new things and yes the classic armor boxes in the "space Pirate" were probably a bad choice. But they had to start somewhere, to get feedback and improve.

Also with the event, If you don't like PVP or if you only want to PvE, the skip the PVP quests. Simple as that. It's not like your missing out on much..

As for people whinging about, the quests being boring, maybe this game isnt for you, I personally love the quests and its only day 3 of the event. Honestly, if you remember back to the Rakghoul event, the missions took time to open up, that might be the case here, especially on the ship. But it's hard to say, only time will tell.

The main issue is a lot of pve people didnt even know ilum was a pvp zone i saw some pretty serious rageing and probably some un subs i had to explain to one guy that this was a pvp zone and he just left ilum after that.

This whole event seemed to be aimed at pissing pve'rs off lol. This is why you have a test server and use it instead its just lets throw this out on the live server and see what happens!!

Lol I agree...

Trying to do some of the new content, nothing but republics spamming the entrances to the gree places with AOES so you have no choice but to respawn at the clinic and try and make it back, yet only to find them there again griefing the entrance. I would have thought they got sick of it after 3 hours...
Re-subscribed SWTOR.. my server is empty and I can't pay for a transfer. Woo hoo, thanks bioware.

With faction imbalances, if they do this, it could very well result in outright slaughter. ESPECIALLY when you get factions aligned. If you have four imp groups and one rep group, they're all going to mob that one rep group, as opposed to each other. Which was one of the problems that led to Ilum being reworked in the first place.

And they were probably in mumble/vent cracking up about it.

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.
Yeah, I've noticed when a PvP flagged player crosses through my companion's attack radius, they'll turn red, but if I don't pursue (continue) that attack, I don't get flagged.

Hmm, how about NOT using AOE when flagged players who might attack you are around (that is, if this was even the reason that the enemys got flagged)?

Pretty advanced stuff, I know.

Very much of the community wanted the old look back. It was a very appreciated addition.
Societies in decline tend not to innovate. I just wish we had cellphones to report quests. Guess light speed tech and cell phone tech are mutually exclusive.
I know this image is supposed to be an insult, but it's not.
Two similar games and yet SW:ToR is so much better.

You know, at first I hated it but if you just sit back and enjoy the ride it is extremely fun. This is what happened to me and it is the most fun i've had in the game thus far.

I'm grouped for the heroic and I rez a guy and of course I get flagged. I'm driving by the south pylon just minding my business and I get yanked off my speeder and face raped. So naturally I want revenge. I rez then I go around the corner and we all gather ourselves and I scream out "oh heck now, r e v e n g e", we come around the corner and guess who is fighting a champ. Boom, we get him. Others jump in and we get them too. They come back about 3 times and we got them. It was just a great fight. The best part was it seemed that they were in line for the champ so they lost the champ credit and had to get back in line. How fun is that! Getting revenge on someone like that then having a nice big ole battle. None of us had pvp gear on and it was just a good ole scrap. Very fun.

So that has basically changed my mind that it can truly be fun, now when fully WH gank squads are running around it is not much fun but other than that it can be a blast. I don't know about your server but mine has imps and pubs flagged standing at the same pylon and no one attacks until attacked. I had a guy send a comp to interrupt us going for a champ so he could get it. It was funny, he paid for it, but it was funny.

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 got to the point where you said they jumped into your AOEs in a PvE area and was flagged. I don't believe that. I've grinded everyday of the gree event, and everyday I see flagged people and everyday I throw down aoes and never get flagged. So the issue is you probably accidentally targeted them which would be on you to just pay more attention.
