30 minutes into the first event: 3/4 of the players are on indar and esamir. Pleading in /orders wont do anything either. I left 10 minutes before the end of the first round cause it was utterly pointless. Sorry guys, but the basic principle behind playing is the rewards involved. You've just made an event with no awards, no achievements, no decals, no armors, no nothing. Completely devoid of any reward. Results: The majority of the population didnt care about it. Would it have been too hard for you to put in a frikin decal for those who participated? You would have spared the players which actually wanted to participate, the frustration of watching 70% of their faction not giving a single damn about this crap. Honestly SOE. Donno what is going on at your place, but it more and more starts to look like this is the first mmo and/or game you have EVER made. Maybe it would be time to fire Higby to hell. When you manage to ruin an event just because you were too lazy to add a 100*100 jpg that every nab can put over their armor... lets just say that you are far from competent.
