Did PVP XP get nerfed again?

I logged in this morning and for fun played on my level 12 bounty hunter. I leveled mostly in PVP from 14 to 24 on my last character and doing constant PVP I rocketed up in levels but after the patch I am hardly getting one bubble worth of XP per game. I didn't see anything about it in the patch notes. Stealth nerf much?

It's just the same as it was yesterday, you're imagining things or have only been playing losing matches today.

Yeah, you're correct I guess. We finally had a game of Huttball where it wasn't a team full of unstopable sages scoring one after the other and when we won it was back to normal.

It's because you are losing, and that's because you are level 12 and taking up a slot a higher level could have filled, and possibly helped to win.

I actually score an average of 2 balls a game because I can run by the attackers and they don't pay attention to me. I'm not a threat but then I'm in position to catch the ball and pass it to someone else down the map.

Also in the one where you have to plant bombs on the doors I run in and shoot people then run back away from the door and like morons several people will try and chase me down. I lead them away from the door and let the other people plant the bombs.

Being low level can make things better just as much as being higher level.

There is no situation where a low level is better than a high level.

What do you suggest? That low level players simply not queue up for PvP, even though they're allowed to and don't have a choice but to PvP with players 40 levels higher? He wasn't "taking up a slot". He was playing the game like everybody else.

Force Sprint is a powerful tool if used correctly in huttball, sorry you don't really understand.

Yup I suggest that they either finally implement brackets, or make 30 the minimum level to PvP.

Have you ever tried to heal a level 13 "tank" that thinks he can run into the group of enemies because he is a "tank".

Any time my premade gets more than 2 level 10-20, we just go ahead and leave and requeue because it's such a severe handicap.
