It was never mentioned in the patch notes about space affecting pvp = bug.

Is part of that balance higher HP from the bolster issue?

Did the Devs intend for us to have that high of HP? Did they adjust the damage accordingly? And if they "fix" the bolster issue and reduce our HP, will that make the classes even more unbalanced?
Hey Kalelsab!

What you are referring to is that when you have PvE Ship parts equipped, you will find that bolster is granting you additional Power and Endurance. As you have likely guessed, this is definitely a bug. We are working on a fix for it internally and as soon as I have timing around a fix being implemented I will let you know!

I will make sure that our forum moderators are not removing threads about this topic since similar to "naked bolster," we are not considering it an exploit. Again I will let you know timing to fix this bug as soon as I have it!

Thanks for the reply. I assume that the devs didn't have this bug when balancing classes then.

In that same memo you send to the mods, make sure they unban/remove points from those that posted about it before. Your communication to/from your mods regarding what is allowed to post and what is not is clearly lacking and your devout SWTOR members should not see punishment from BW's unclear forum post boundaries.

That being said, thank you very much for coming and reporting this to us!

We are working on it internally..... As opposed to externally? Outsource much? Lol
