I would like to express my disgust at the battlemaster bag drop rate. You guys at bioware claim that it is 25% chance and have said you have tested it. But I bet you placed a load of bags in your bag and opened them one after the other!!!! I have opened 14 in a row, 2 a day and 4 on one day in the week and manage to obtain a single BM commendation. That is a 7.14% chance so far and it will probably decline further. You need to rethink the way BM gear is obtained because this is truely ridiculous!!!!

RANT OVER

Thank You

I think the 25% refers to opening one bag, not 25% of all bags yields the comm.

Like flipping a coin, there is a 50/50 chance to get heads or tails. If you flip 20 heads in a row, the odds of flipping tails on the 21st flip are still 50/50.
IA* I wouldn't venture out there fellas. This sniper's got talent.

It's still utterly dumb to make or obtaining battlemaster or any kind of pvp gear luck based. It presents a possible scenario where a person opens 100 bags and gets not even 1 battlemaster token. It's just dumb and not well thought at all.

What has been well thought of about anything in this game the devs are complete knuckle heads.

Whatever one's opinion on the battlemaster bags RNG issue, that's for the suggestion forums, not the CS forums.

Getting the same as everyone else...and have been seeing comments form others.Having said that it seems since the last patch the drop rate has dramatically dropped. Bioware you need to correct things like this.....dont and your subscription rates will drop. In closing Ill say this, Bioware said they would review the issues with iluum...where a lot of people got their valour so they could become BMs. So is this the solution, make it so no BM commendations drop for anyone?

They fixed it. In 1.2 patch.

Greetings all,

Being an avid PvP player and Battlemaster myself I can empathise with the frustration you are feeling about the battlemaster token drops.

I can happily say though that this system is currently being redesigned/changed in the 1.2 patch that is coming soon.

While these patch notes are currently in testing and are subject to changes, some of the following points may be of interest regarding this topic:
  • High-level PvP Daily and Weekly missions now reward a combination of Warzone and Ranked Warzone Commendations.
  • Battlemaster PvP vendors now sell Battlemaster gear pieces for Warzone Commendations.
  • The Valor Rank requirement has been removed from Battlemaster earpieces and implants.


Thank You.
