There is a big argument going on the forums over 1.7. Basically it comes down to PVE players wanting the new items from the new upcoming  Ilum event but not wanting to be "forced" as they put it to PVP in order to get them. This is deja vu for those of you that remember the cries of "forced PVP" in SWG over the Jedi profession and then Restuss.

 

Why is it that people who only PVE  think that every bit of new content that comes out should be made specifically for them? This game has tons of PVE only content and Makeb, which is a PVE only planet, will be released soon.  PVPers have had to do the same five warzones over and over again ever since Ilum was shut down. This is finally adding something interesting to the planet. 

Thoughts?

This argument is old as hell: Put the effort into the required area and reap rewards.

What other games, computer or rl do you know of that have the rules change just for the player.

while a little forced pvp to get a reward isnt that bad and has been done in other games as well without that many complaints, this just also goes to show you how much this horrible dev team refuses to listen to the majority of its playerbase and continues to add stuff that the community doesnt want. The HK parts in the exiles den created a huge disdain in the community with the 1.5 patch . Now they do it all over again forcing things down the players throats that majority just do not want. This is just another example of why EA and Bioware are utter morons and do not care about their game , just to milk the remaining playerbase.

Reminds me of the raiding v/s grouping arguments where players wanted the same gear as raiders, but w/o having to put the same effort into it  ;)

Timeless argument, just a different theme :(

@ Cronius

How do you determine "the majority" of a playstyle in a game? Everyone I talk to in game is looking forward to this new event. It' s only on the forums that I find dissent and it's really the same people over and over again. It's really no different than any other game where events like these are done. When Restuss was announced for SWG, the forums lit up with the PVEers pissed because an area was being added to the planet that they couldn't go to. Proved to be a very popular thing for a long while for the game. 

 

Should every new event and content be PVE only just because that's what we think the majority wants? What about those of us that like both PVE and PVP?

Food for (Darkside) thought.

While there is a much greater focus of PVE in the game, if the cartel shop ever does go to a blatant  P2W route, the PVP playerbase is where the most money could be made to sell P2W items.

Even if the hardcore PVP playerbase is relatively small, they do reprsent a possible source of the greatest ARPU ratio-wise.

You could postulate that this is a cheap (cheaper then designing new Warzones or a functional OPVP lake or RvR scenario) to keep a potential source of future revenue appeased.

Unless someone constantly rolls alts, there is a lack of new content for the forseeable future.  With that, I could imagine that everyone hopes the scraps being given might be entertaining or enjoyable to them.

 

If EA was actually continuing to push content out in large amounts every 4 weeks, like the original plan from last year, arguments like the one you linked would be few and far between.

i know what your saying man and trust me it doesnt bother me one bit as i mentioned in the begining of my statement  but its not just a few people did you see the thread with about 40 pages during the 1.5 exiles den for HK parts? I do not mind putting in work in pvp or pve myself but bioware DOESNT listen to its playerbase and its been like this since launch. WAR you had to pvp if you wanted certain rewards and at the begining of release there was a large pve crowd with war that used to cry and cry over having to pvp for certain set gear. It happens I totally understand that....but this company now continues to not listen to most of its playerbase forcing stuff down peoples throats who do not want it. If it was Trion or Anet or even SOE you probably wouldnt hear many complaints ,but its a company with a track record of never listening in the first place and pissing off its remaining base.

Yep. Sometimes dealing with these type of  players is like dealing with children. If they don't get their way all the time they threaten to tak their ball and go home.

 I have pvped but would consider myself a pve player.   Let the pve players complain but don't change it.

i kind of find it interesting how there seemed to be a big influx of support for this kind of thing after the rakghoul event causing big battles over the world boss in outlaws den that seemed to excite people and so bioware tries to do more of it and it people scream about forced pvp. just cant win

 

edit: just to be clear, im not saying anymore here is, just in general

Self Entitled PVE players thinking they run the world of MMO's...Nothing new here. But this is why us PVP players can't have nice things. PVE people bitch and whine when we actually get something worth while. If Illum had been half as good as I was hopeing I might have stuck around and played for awhile longer than I did. 

 

Its funny because PVE players do their raiding thing and PVE events and such, you won't see a PVP player come trampling in on their parade...But as soon as something comes up thats the opposite, all hell breaks lose. This is one reason I in general don't like PVE only players. 

"In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

I understand where your coming from . When you mention to them that they are getting an entire planet with the next expansion they just shrug it off. They want every item and title in the game regardless and they will kick up a mighty stink if you force them to do PVP. It's funny, because they can wipe a hundred times to a stupid NPc  with no problem yet go nuts if it happens against a player.

Restuss PvP was the only PvP that I have ever enjoyed. I loved it until it became a "king of the hill" match. One faction would stand in the spaceport and the other would stand on that little hill just inside the PvP zone.

If the server says "PVE", it should only be PVE.

 

And frankly, in PVE orientated games, the only people who are even interested in PvP are just interested in ganking. If they were truly so big and tough MMORPG players (ha), they'd be playing a game focused on PvP.

I feel that there should be rewards for specific endeavors. If everyone is special then no one is.
