This thread reminds me of the old 'when will they merge servers' threads we saw about a year ago. Subscribers weren't interested in playing an mmo by themselves and thus voiced their concerns. EA/Bioware didn't act on it till they lost half of their subs because they didn't want to look bad for that quarter or whatever the excuse was.
Now the majority of the pvp'ers are losing interest in this failed attempt to appeal to the pve'ers, ftp'ers, and people that want this game to be a first person shooter with this bolster experiment. Many subs are waiting to see if they bite the bullet and scrap lvl 55 bolster. I just hope they realize people will look elsewhere pretty soon if bolster isn't removed.
