After Game Update 1.1 went live, we discovered that the Open World
PvP area on Ilum was not working as our PvP design team intended. As
many of you know, large groups of players began capturing the Ilum
control points, then 'camping' at the enemy's base. This led to a very
frustrating experience for a number of players who were unable to leave
their base and fight back against their attackers. It was not a fair
gameplay experience. In addition, some players on the attacking side
gained more Valor points than designed for the time they spent in PvP.
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
Thanks for your patience while we worked to resolve this issue. Our
team worked diligently to get a patch ready to address this and other
issues, and we're already seeing the results in improved battles on
Ilum. As always we welcome your feedback and will continue to improve
