I think it is a clever tactic by BW.

Since it does not avoid the 4th pillar of story. It basically makes a lvl 50 go through all the story content anyways.

Also while power lvling in illum and the gree even is in a contested zone, so it bring more people to the area at the same time. Which from a pvp perspective is a good thing while making the reward that much greater.

I hear there are a lot of people power lvling people, and it seems to be a community thing rather than for hire. That goes to show the care from the community as well.

Imo, its a good thing, and it also reflects well on the community for allowing it to happen helping the game, and themselves, and as stated bring an intersting aspect to pvp in the game with power lvling in the area... without still avoiding story.

I think they should allow for this concept to continue throughout the game and should be the method to bridge the gap for expansion in the future. And since it is tied in with black hole comms it requires people with a certain number to access this it seems. I am not sure what you mean by the BH comms though, and would like to know more about this.

The exploit is to make a new character, buy a Priotity Transport Black Hole  pass from the Cartel market, (Might as well pick up some XP potions)

you port there, then take the shuttle to Ilum, join an OPs raid, and grind the pylons.

The bolster works on the level 1 character, so in essence you can grind to 50 in about 10 hours.

A certain someone is splitting hairs and saying that the double XP weekend and the exploit are two separate issues that just happen to work well together.

As Ktanner pointed out, it's not really an axploit since Bioware is aware of it and hasn't put a kaboosh on it.

If you think it's an exploit, then there is an appropiate box to check in the poll.

Apparently my pointing this out makes me a SWTOR hating, flaming troll.

The quick pass gets people using Cartel Coins and that what is intended. 

If it's working as intended then it's not an exploit. 

Things can me intentional and exploitable.

 

An exploit is just somthing that gives someone and unfair advantage.  I can promise you that is an exploit.  I don't know if it is intended or not.

 

A company can want an exploit.  In this case I suspect that they do.  It is probably a profitable exploit, and the profitable part is what they care about. 

 

Well There Is An Exploit With Mmorpg, The Same Posters Can Post Misleadin, False, Inaccuate Information For Almost A YeaR And a Half Now And Nothing Happens To Them . If You Call Them Out For What They Are You Get A Warning This Is An Example Of An Exploit Working As Intended.

No Your History Does. I Would Guess Maybe 1% Of Players Know Of ThisEXPLOIT And Less Than 1% Use This EXPLOIT. Swtor Is Also Not The First Mmo In The World That Has Had An EXPLOIT ThatA Very Small Percentage Of Players EXPLOIT. Double Xp Was A Good Thing The 99.99% Of Players Used It THe Intended Way. Trying To Mislead People On Here An Acting Like A Ton Of People Used This EXPLOIT is Sad.

What are you talking about? Half of SWTOR's forum threads are about this topic. The Gree event had 9 instances running this weekend. How in Hades am I being misleading?

Eric's response to Ilum booster:)

Hey folks,

I wanted to give you all an update on this now that I have all of the information in place.

First, we are not considering this an exploit so anyone who had fear of action being taken against their characters, etc, should not be afraid. We will not be doing anything to players who used the Ilum pylons to get to 50.

I will say that player ingenuity never ceases to amaze us all. This was not a part of the intended design of the Gree event running simultaneous to the Double XP Weekends. Due to this, we are going to be having a maintenance later this week to deploy a fix to this issue.

I wanted to talk a bit about the fix itself since it will mix up things on Ilum temporarily. Our immediate fix to this issue is that for the time being, we are going to disable bolster on Ilum. This will have a couple of different affects.

  • Low level characters will no longer be treated as level 50 in regards to experience. They will now have the normal experience penalties associated to grouping with a player of a higher level. Meaning those players will now gain little to no experience when grouped.
  • Players who are levels 45-49 will have a slightly harder time completing some Gree event quests as they are no longer bolstered to level 50.

I want to again reiterate that this is only a temporary solution. We are continuing to investigate the issue and intend to have a more permanent solution in place before the Gree event returns.

-eric

He posted later some additional info

I don't want everyone to get too caught up here on my vocabulary. I simply meant we do not consider it an exploit in that it is not severe to the point that we will be actioning accounts/characters for it.

Players got creative in a way we did not originally intend, but we do not want to punish you for it. However, we also did not intend for it to be that way so we are making a temporary change to address it until we can get a more permanent solution in place.

= Exploit. 

 

They are just not going to punish people.

 

When did we start altering the English language so that words lost their meaning?

My stance is usually that it is the fault of the devs when these things happen - until they warn people and then anyone who takes advanage is exploiting.

Clearly they don't want to expend the resource that would be needed to fix it - at the moment anyway. And clearly they are not worried about the rate at which people level - hence the double xp events. If people stop buying double xp perks however then they may change their mind.

I totally loved the double xp weekend. I don't think it really matters if people grind to level fifty in 10 hours. I don't have 10 hours to grind away anyway and if you do I feel so sorry got you.

Thats just plain stupid.

End game is horrible for TOR, so I'm not sure why someone would want to rush through to it.  XP weekends are probably good for F2P people though, since they don't level for shit otherwise.
