After today's patch deployment, SWTOR players discovered a PvP exploit that helped them earn copious amounts of valor. In particular, Imperial players ganked Republic players nearly at will all day long and this wasn't just a load of QQ. Inexplicably this horrendous exploit didn't immediately cause all servers to be shut down until the loophole could be closed. Bioware has a plan that Mike Bitton discusses in our latest Staff Blog.
The changes in Update 1.1, which went live today, made the notion of flipping points not nearly as rewarding as actually fighting other players, especially if you fight them near objectives. Great! Mission accomplished, right?
