Heads up on a change that some of you spotted as being in Game Update 3.2 on PTS, it is actually a part of 3.1.2 which is coming tomorrow. The change is around three Stronghold titles, which some players are using to move around Warzone Commendations in a way we did not intend. Here are the changes:

The following Stronghold Titles are now Bind on Pickup:
  • Stronghold Label: Imperial Sanctuary
  • Stronghold Label: Republic Sanctuary
  • Stronghold Label: Starfighter's Lounge
If you have any of these titles unbound, they will bind to you as of tomorrow.

Thanks!

Way to kill pvp Eric in case you have not noticed people want to move comms around this is a bad change kinda like the slot machine you guys are doing a great job at pissing off your pvp player base. Keep it up and pvp will be a ghost town.

It also solved the problem with some classes not using the same weapons cross-faction. I just don't get it, it's like you've set out to make life as miserable as possible for the PvP'ers. When was the last time you actually did something that benefitted us - or gave us some content for that matter? A lot of discoveries were the result of mistakes.
They want rid of us and our inferior pvp subs, I honestly believe that is blatantly true given their lack of interest in the only enjoyable part of this game.

The change does not really bother me that much, all my toons are PVP geared, but what this will actually do the already dwindling queues, is not acceptable.

So... I'm kinda curious what exactly it is that we've done to you, Eric, to make you hate us so much? This feels like a big old middle finger shoved right in our face, saying "Screw you, you PvP losers. We hate you, now go away."

This isn't to the same scale as SOE's NGE from SWG, but this honestly comes across as you trying to follow the example of John Smedley.
...and I'm back. For the third time. Maybe the fourth. I've lost count. Leveling yet another Sentinel/Maruader, and I'll likely figure out what I'm doing in about a month or so, right before I quit again. Not sure if I'm subscribing again.

I also don't see the point of the change.

Everyone still had to PVP to get the comms, we just had a nice, convenient way to gear up alts. This is no exploit, it's quality of life.

What exactly are geared characters supposed to use comms on?

Maybe a better question is, why is it intended for fresh 60s to be useless in PVP?

pretty much if they have not notice we hate the change with the 2 plus threads on pts. There just hating the pvp community as a hole. Comms should be legacy wide period and stop the dev stupidity. There out of touch with there own games and have no idea what there doing best thing that could happen to them is this game shuts down.

An exploit (from the English verb to exploit, meaning "using something to one’s own advantage") is a piece of software, a chunk of data, or a sequence of commands that takes advantage of a bug, glitch or vulnerability in order to cause unintended or unanticipated behavior to occur on computer software, hardware, or something electronic (usually computerized). Such behavior frequently includes things like gaining control of a computer system, allowing privilege escalation, or a denial-of-service attack.

This was people doing a sequence of commands to exploit a bug that has the unintended consequence of being able to move comms around from character to character. Back when Legacy gear was first implemented many people didn't swap their mods for fear that it would be considered an exploit, however they opted to leave it in place as an untended feature.

I hadn't even heard of this but am glad some people got to improve their QOL for a while with the silly PVE-esque grind you guys insist on PVP having.

Such is not the case here. People were PvP'ing, as they regularly did. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING was acquired unlawfully, whether it was, gear comms or anything else.

Again, go troll somewhere else, please.

This right here...

Shows you have no interest in anything else really. Pitiful really.
