The balanced pvp will exist in the 1-49 bracket. I tend to agree with you, the level 50 bracket will always be a gear race. As long as bolster seems to be working 1-49 like I think it is, there may never be a reason for me to ding 50.
I'm with you. I benched my 50 Scoundrel, even though he's got mostly Champion pieces and 450+ expertise simply because 10-49 is 10000x more fun.

Favorite part of the patch is not having to listen to level 50s blame 1 or 2 sub 50s as the reason they lost. (Hint: If both teams have the same amount of 50s, you might want to do some introspection for the blame.)

How many of those 50s would stand a chance against anyone but a no-Expertise lowbie?

But now a fresh lvl 50 will enter a warzone and will fight people in battle master gear, trust me you'll feel like a lvl 10 toon all over again.
Here you can have this

Think that will sum it up. INC expertise normalization and bolstering after 50. Get with the trend Bioware and save yourself the nightmare

^^^ This.

Exactly.

This will be perfect for REAL PvP...not carebear PvP (gear race) where time invested = easy win, no skill required.


Face it, the "PvP" before Patch 1.1 was really PvE raiding. Those with the 40-50 hours a week to play could have fun doing it; the rest of the player base could not participate.

Is it kind of ironic. I was looking more forward to PvP'ing on my lowbies again than I was for the 50 bracket. I think the 50 bracket will be fun and is a good thing, but I'm more excited to hop on my lowbies again.

Not that I know you are paying attention, I will say it again. About 75 percent of the posts on these forums were about how 50s single handedly ruined WZs for people. Now that the bracket is in place, I for one am thankful that I will not have to listen to it any more and these forums can focus on other issues since everything is fixed.

Except the broken-mirror and numbers imbalance favouring Empire, that is.
