Sadly this has been known for quite some time (around launch) and if I remember correctly, there has YET to be at least a dev acknowledging/denying or even stating that they are even looking into the matter.
I've seen others state this, but I don't remember ever seeing anything about this before.
The problem isn't really visible
unless you test it as I and others have done. Personally, (I'll say it again, personally
), I'm not so concerned about the rated PvP problems that can arise from this imbalance, I am however concerned about the quality of life
affect this has on Troopers/Vanguards because they have to work harder to stay in the optimal regen range.
It would be really nice to get some feedback from Bioware on this.
