I've got a blog post coming up explaining in detail the reasoning behind these bracket changes for 2.0. Stay tuned!

New brackets are really good for the game, new low lvl players will no longer be rofl stomped in wz.
This should have been in the game just after launch ! And no more crappy blue recruit gear is good.

Weird....it's almost like you were reading this forum

Good to know, anxious to hear what the reasoning was/is.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

You enter a warzone wearing last year's corduroy flares, they're buffed to grunt-grade plasteel armour (right down to having no gear at all in a slot and getting buffed up, hence comments about naked pvp). The idea is that these stats are not quite as good as earned pvp gear, but good enough to contribute. So if you still suck it's not your gear's fault.

Well, that's the theory anyway.
So, let me get this straight....

I've got full EWH - and now I'm going to be up against people bolstered to recruit level, but who have far fewer skills than me, and who may not have experienced lvl 50 PvP (Which is much more demanding than <50).

Also, as I pug a lot - I'm going to be teaming with them?

On one hand I'm going to be eating people alive, while simultaneously being dragged back by undergeared .... noobs, for want of a better phrase.

And for the record - yes, I eat people in recruit gear alive. I'm not boasting. I'm quite good at PvP and I have a massive gear advantage: There is only one outcome possible.
. Shine on, you crazy pixel.

Funny post! The nine circles of SW:TOR PvP hell

I can't wait to hear it. Maybe it's nothing but an explanation. Maybe it's something cool.

Hope brackets don't equate to 45 min- 1hr wait times.

Ok now another question which is valid here, Will the bolster still be present in level 55??

30-54 bracket is going to be brutal. A very small part of me wants to just sit in that bracket and dominate.

Are F2P'ers going to be stuck at 50?

How about some explanation on the lack of feedback response to Sorcs for 2.0 and the abysmal state it had been left in for PVP for 2.0? Please head to our class forums and communicate with your customers about a class that is very broken in PVP. We would love to hear some of the developers insight.

Communication is key. Never forget that.

Yes. The new Bolster will be present in all Brackets.
