further than that.. Valor was to be the gateway for all future sets of PvP gear as well.. So now if it's not reset, then they'll always qualify for the gear while Repubs will still have to grind the insane numbers.

I do think that the game needs a total rework of the pvp system now. Complete roll backs for some stats should be considered or the system reworked where valor is no longer a stat. IMO the gear situation from just doing ilum dailies for free need to be reset. All gear taken away and they thing just redone. I myself took advantage of this and found myself seeing the game as not fun because of this. There is no real truely rewarding experience than getting something you actually deserve through hard work.

BW just scrap pvp gear and the system all together till things get reworked. Take everything away and come up with a system that truely works. At least PvE gear is earned properly. Hope this was a lesson you learned and this should have never happened due to other MMOs having the same issues. Protection "police/guard" units in bases should not be tankable or destroyable. Just make them all world bosses with no loot lol.

Thanks to this patch, I just change my subscription from 6-month to 1-month. I will give BW another month to show me they have a clue. I will do FP and Warzone in the next month. But if Ilum is still unplayable for Republic in a month, I'm gone.

Had a relatively nice Kotor SP game though... I just don't want to concern myself with the mess that is pvp anymore

That's silly. NPCs should never give PvP experience (i.e. valor). It should only come from killing players or completely quests involving the killing of players. Furthermore, there should be diminishing returns to discourage spawn camping.

A+B=clearly you should be a developer.

I don't know who thought awarding PvP points for farming NPCs was a good idea but the idea (no matter how few points are earned) undermines the very concept of PvP. PvP is about fighting opposing PLAYERS.

Diminishing returns are critical to limit the impact of farming folks, particularly at spawn points.

The idea that there are A) no diminishing returns on valor B) rewards for killing NPCs and C) no diminishing returns on valor for killing NPCs just suggests incompetence on someone's part. This doesn't really smell like a minor screw up... someone just has no idea *** they are doing.

Everyone knows this was probably a screw up. Anyone that continued to do it without submitting a bug report should be insta banned.

Simple SOLUTION!

People taking advantage of accidental mistakes is what ruins MMO's. Mistakes happen and the community needs to help FIX the problems instead of taking advantage of them.
