Bolster system has flaws but I support it. Oh, the irony though- I think I just bumped your thread up.. Maybe I need to start a thread that is pro-bolster sans the few bugs.

Gotta love freedom of speech, though! I respect your opinion, but disagree. Besides, bolster isn't leaving anytime soon, sorry friend!

I'm almost certain that you don't believe you suck, friend. Hardly any pvp'er thinks they sucks. If you think the removal of bolster sucks, though, i agree. KEEP BOLSTER, FIX the BUGS! You with me on that! Werd...

How 'bout this- you can have you "bad recruit" gear back and work within the confines of the new bolster system? Win/Win! Woot! Thanks for posting friend!

I had to deal with recruit gear and did not cry about it

I played the objective learned my class and eventually got my WH gear, I found every moment enjoyable.
This. Definitely this.

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.

Seriously. Doesn't it strike you as odd to implement two different sets because you want to differ between pve and pvp equipment. And then when you realize that you actually have two different sets of equipment you make a broken bolster to "fix" it.?

-Hey, lets create two gear sets! One PVP and one PVE. And like.. the pvp gear is much better in player fights.
They do that in WOW so we just copy it. I think its great"

[waiting period]

-Guys, we have two different gear sets so now you have to have PVP gear to play pvp!
-Dammit. How did this happen?
-They have it in wow so we wanted it too.
-Ok, How to fix?
-Well. We want to keep the two sets. (Since they have it in wow) So we just add some bolster to it?
- Great. I'll write something random here without much mathematical analysis. I really don't think making a model of it is necessary. Besides, I have to leave early today.

[waiting period]

-Guys.. on PTS they say bolster is completely broken. They run around naked.
-Broken? Lets check the mathematical model of it. Oh wait. There is none. Lets just push it out. I need to go early today. It will hopefully fix itself once we add more players into the mix.

Sorry but all you people who want Bolster removed better pack your bags and just quit because recently EA posted it's earnings report and reported double Monthly revenue from this game on a month to month basis so yea you can leave now your unsubbing won't effect them a bit.

Stop with that nonsense. You just sound lazy.
really? nothing? so either you're someone who is really bad and relies on their gear or you actually have no idea what you're talking about. hard work is learning and understanding your class. Lazy is gear reliant. I hate to inform you, but you're that lazy one.
