16. Re: The Old Republic Patch Live and Causing PvP Problems Jan 19, 2012, 00:27 Doombringer
The PVP exploit: not the first, not the last, in any and every MMO. Players find ways around content blocks and even the best bug-hunting. I can't tell you how many times WoW has PTR'd a patch for months... it launches... and bugs still abound. Often, they are bugs that were even reported many times in PTR.

The faction imbalance: again, this is news? It happens. People want to play what they want to play, and where they want to play it. For years, many WoW servers were plagued with this problem... any open-world PVP saw more Alliance players over Horde, or more skilled Horde over Alliance, etc, etc. All a matter of perspective. Cross-realm PVP would balance this, but any per-realm PVP will always be subject to however that server's factions are "stacked." Fact of life. If players clamor for "open world PVP" they have to accept the reality of their server's faction landscape.

What boggles me most is that some people are treating this as if its the first time this has ever happened in an MMO. Hello? Every MMO has these problems. WoW has, and still has, these problems... 7 years in!
