    Not that I'm against more xp, but what would +20% xp do that +15% (as is on until the 22nd) won't do? Will we suddenly see twice as many people on because of those 5%?
    It's definitely an N-word.

    you could slap 60% crazy bonus month in there and I think the result would be the same.

    Default would be better

    imo if they did heroic and epic separately that would funnel a greater number of players questing at the same level

    it would also allow for two different xp weekends in the bonus days rotation .

    this is how it was and then someone at turbine thought this was better

    not the best decision for the game

    Agreed, having them on separate timers allows people to plan around what character they play and when. And it has been ghost town lately Halppp

    I cannot disagree more with this. Back when they did separate heroic/epic xp bonuses without fail every time the xp was for epic I was mid TR focus, and every time it was heroic i would have just hit 20, I missed the bonus every single time.
    Whoever had the idea to combine the 2 into a single bonus has my eternal gratitude.

It's not too hard to figure out that is not what this game needs right now. 2-3 million karma ok, there's some pain for your gain. But really, the EPL's are not worth the pain of 6 million XP in off destinies/sphere's.

    Wait, what? Not following you? Or sure if serious, but

    So, when they ran heroic xp week every time, you would miss it. But every time they ran the same Heroic xp week without running an epic xp week, you didnt miss it.....

    How does removal of an extra week of alternate xp make you not miss the same heroic xp weeks that they have always been running?

    He's saying that he had bad luck and always managed to be at the wrong character level for whatever bonus they were running. When they were running epic bonus his toon was in heroic levels. When they where running heroic bonuses his toon was 20+.

    I like having both bonuses at the same time, it means I can play whatever character I want and not feel like I'm missing out.

    Combining them was indeed a reaction to some pretty intense player outcry, back when we did them separately. Whenever a Heroic weekend was announced, we'd get quite a bit of criticism from those who wished to run Epic quests, and visa versa. So, based on player requests, we combined them. I guess this falls along the lines of "can't make everyone happy no matter what you do."
    Have fun, and don't forget to gather for buffs!

    Personally, I'm extremely happy with this change. Please send kind words to any and all involved in making it combined instead.

    Quite possibly one of the most underused comments from Team Turbine.

    And probably a statement that needs to be said more when asking players for feedback.
