The Old Republic Ilum PvP Follow-up

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Website has an update on the PvP problems that were just patched out of the Star Wars MMORPG (thanks nin). Though some players abused the problems that followed the version 1.1 patch, they say they will not be implementing a rollback, but they repeat a warning they will be taking actions in cases they feel the situation was exploited "to an unreasonable degree." Here' part:
The amount of Valor granted from these activities was significantly more than intended and we are now carefully investigating players who were on Ilum during this period, and present at some of these 'camping' events. I can reassure you that those who were involved and who gained an unfair advantage over other players inappropriately will be carefully reviewed and action will be taken to restore game balance. This could include Valor adjustments or account actions in accordance with the severity of the issue.

We have made the decision not to enact a mass 'rollback' of Valor points for all players in the game, or even on Ilum. This would unfairly penalize some players who may not have been present during this event. Rest assured though, anyone and everyone who is found to have exploited the situation to an unreasonable degree will be investigated and actions taken as needed. Our in-game metrics are able to give us precise details on where players were, what they were doing and what rewards they gained.

We take any sort of situation where one group of players gains an unexpected or unintended advantage over other players very seriously and will act to ensure that all players can have a fair and fun game experience.

Now if you'd just cancel your life this world would be a smarter place.

So if I killed myself, the world would be 'smarter' for it? Wow, I bet you have some proud parents.

In a PvP environment (which this was), spawn camping is an acceptable tactic. It has been in DAoC, EQ, Wow and others. To counter extensive grieving a quality developer prevents this by offering no Valor / Honour after the 2nd or 3rd kill or guards that protect spawners. So realistically, this is a developer issue not a player one. One that Bioware has learnt in the past few days.

It also appears that to the fanboy's, EA / Bioware can do no wrong. And hey thats fine, your opinion is yours to cherish. But quote me, this game is doomed. I'd say in a year it will be Free To Play and most of its revenue will come from Micro Transactions.

I combined a common phrase with a sarcastic slur to point out that you made an idiotic comment. It's not my fault you took it literally.
