when you say something like this, I find it difficult NOT to resort to personal attacks. pve gear is better in pvp than pvp gear, and you don't see a problem? lol

let me get this straight, a fresh 55 with 2750 reg and 4500 rated comms is helpless? grow up. that's a full set of main partisan pieces. and everyone who wants to get rid of bolster is fine with free recruit gear to fill your expertise gaps while you grind the ancillary pieces of partisan. should a fresh 55 be able to walk into 55 TFB or TP HM? no. of course not. grow up.

Sorry but No.
Bolster should stay and they should just fix the Aug exploit.
Simply make it impossible to remove gear/mods in a WZ.

Myself and I'm sure many many players are casual pvpers and Bolster allows us to have some pvp fun while we grind for the better pvp gear.
Why would you want unbolstered 55's in your match? We are just as likely to be on your team as the enemy team. And without bolster pve geared players are a liability on whatever team they are on.
And seeing as i only jumped into pvp at 55 I would be totally screwed without bolster in place and I wouldnt even bother grinding for the pvp gear and would forget about pvp totally. I am sure many others would be in the same boat.
End result is less pvpers and pvp slowly dies.

The bolster exploit needs to be fixed? Bolster in all pvp needs to stay.

Instead of protesting for the removal of bolster, can we protest for the removal of whoever gave it the green light to go live? Why did the thing even go live until it was ironed out? Besides the fact that Preseason 1 for Ranked has gone on for a damn year now, wasn't that the reason why Ranked was delayed from 1.2 to 1.3? Something in the system didn't work so they waited, or so they said. So why did they release a clearly broken system onto the live servers? It was no secret people. It's almost as though the PTS exists as placebo so we have the illusion that we're "testing".

On topic: Bolster has no place in ranked PvP. There is no discussion to be had there. Level 55 is debatable on whether or not there exists a combination of PvE gear and PvP gear which is superior to strictly PvP gear. And for those of you who are unaware, there has been such a combination in every iteration since launch (pre-1.2 you'd wear at least one entire PvE piece often of Rakata quality; 1.2-2.0 you'd often take non-expertise barrels/hilts/crystals for better stats). So unless the curves have been incredibly well designed (and judging by the mishap which has been Bolster I seriously doubt it) there will still be a point on the curve where the gain you get from PvE mods makes up for the loss in Expertise.

No sorry, bolster should go... I should be able to go into the warzone with the stats I go in there with , and not have to worry about some retarded bolster system effecting my stats. There is nothing about bolster that is making it skill > Gear... it is still Gear > Skill, but it is bugged and nobody understands what anything is anymore.

What you need to be doing is grinding for pve gear, because right now it is better than pvp gear.

Yeah it's still very broken.

Please bring back the old progression of recruit gear -> partisan -> conquerer, and give recruit gear for free.

We all know how much you guys love designing new suits instead of fixing gameplay issues, so this is the perfect chance to do both!

at least take it out of ranked. unranked it is ok, as casual pvpers should be able to be as competative as hardcore pvpers in a casual setting

Bolster is a good idea, just needs to be implemented properly.
