Why did you nerf them so hard? The tank can no longer tank without dying - so back to why I left in the first place, just came back for this expansion, the healer can no longer heal enough to keep me alive

Do you actually want me to stay?

I was really enjoying playing before this latest patch and now all of my enthusiasm has been instantly removed.

Thanks a lot

i dont know why they would listen to the same 3-4 ppl about the companions, i think the level sync and the equipment/mod vendors seem like something worth visiting more urgently than the companions, like honestly why wouldnt you want your companion to be competent enough to keep you alive or to tank like a baws. There is a video in youtube in game theory about this same problem, about how gamers themselve ruin good games because of stupid complaints like this because we are never satisfied, well i happen to be one of those 1% who welcomed the changes give or take a few that didnt sit well with me, but not enough for me to threaten the compan to stop playing, as many have done here. Honestly this goes to show that bioware really deosnt know who to listen to and go for the ppl who happen to have a tendency to complain about everything, ive kept quite for some time reading these forums, but im actually worried for a game that i care deeply about and has helped me with my depression, making it this ****ed with this patch saddens me because now i wont be able to enjoy the game cuz ill be too busy dying and reviving and wasting countles credits on repairing when i can put those credits to better use

I have to agree that the nerf went too far. While it's not an issue on the characters I play most (because they've got decent gear, mostly), I logged on to a few lesser-played characters yesterday and found that I couldn't get through basic content. Yes, i realize that what I need to do for all of them is get them better gear but how am I supposed to do that when they can't complete missions to obtain it? Kind of a catch-22.

For those who complained so loudly that having overpowered companions was ruining their experience, please think about those at the other extreme end of the situation. Like I said, i consider myself lucky in that my top three toons noticed minimal performance drops yesterday. But that's three out of 8 capped characters, not to mention the 'baby' alts I have waiting for attention. Devs, please consider taking some middle ground here before people start dropping the game. It's easy enough to find real challenge even if you're in top form; not so easy to get there if you can't compete.

On a side note, I humbly request that the level sync be something that can be (under certain circumstances) optional on a per-travel-to-planet basis. Doing heroics for crates and crystals? Fine, level sync makes sense. But there are other times when a person just wants to find one objective or explore and to be honest it's a huge turn-off for those things. A capped character gets no experience points after all, so what motivation is there? Just a thought. Overall, I love the new story line and many of the changes. Just these two things... please listen to your broad player base and make some middle-ground decisions!

Yeah I feel uber crushed that I have a 216 geared toon with 90k hp that cant solo because my comp only has 4k heals and if lucky will crit for 5k. less than 3.0 heals was a bad idea, I don't care if its "possible" I don't want possible I want I can complete this solo, I don't have time to wait for ques hoping I get an ok team mate. I was really excited for the patch and loved the new system........ just hate that I'm paying for them to ruin the game...... no way can you call increasing the challenge and decreasing comps power any good. -5 comp +10 challenge= 15 point gap.

People complained that the new hypercrates/packs lost substantial value when bioware decreased the item count from 5 to 2. We told them that one random armor and one companion gift for 200CC wasn't a good deal. Know how to get your companions to perform better? Give them companion gifts. NOW getting a companion gift is worth the 200CC right? Wanna clear content? PAY for it. Buy CC so you can get gifts, or go broke buying them from the gtn and THEN buy CC to make your companion competent. Seems like a pay to win scenario to me. Free xpac my furry ***!

Same here dude! Was enjoying the game, looked forward to play swtor everyday. And "poof" a patch comes along and now it killed my interest completly.
So disappointed. I logged out and havent logged in again today..
Don't have time for OPS or huge guild, it was good when I could do things on my own and sometimes game with a friend when the time was there. Considering the sub atm

Me too! I was going to make a toon of each class because I was having so much fun, but now I have unsubscribed.

I quit 2 months after launch because of this crap. I came back almost 2 weeks ago, and really enjoyed the new experience so decided to re sub, and after less than a week in to my sub trial from raf they pull this ****. I canceled my sub and removed my payment method. I haven't been charged yet so it will be seen whether they penalize my account, or go ahead and find a way to still charge me. Either way I'm not playing even for free until they hotfix this bs back to a some what pleasurable experience. I'm not going to be crafty and rely on cc for mundane grind tasks.
