Sure, 21-24 had to be my one whole Weekend off so I already had plans, Grrr

Other two, I get the joy of working near constant.

The times I get to log in looks like It is time to work on the BH I've been wanting to try.

Thanks for the heads up. I usually find out about Double XP weekend 9pm after work on the last day.

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

Normally i am not to fun about double XP weekends... but when playing your 4th Imperial character the only thing really interesting is you class story, in this case the double XP works miracles and prevents you from redoing a lot of quests you allready did on other characters..

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

Should effectively double the speed to achieve shutdown status.  It will help everyone who wants to see the class stories 1-50, which is the reason to play.  3x or 4x XP would be better though... Starting a brand new character at level 50 would be even better (like WoW's Death Knights).

Yeah, I played my fourth republic character through one of my least favorite planets (ala Taris). Double xp allowed me to move through my class story pretty nicely. I wonder if a lot of people had the same idea. Taris was slammed this last weekend.
