Companion Changes - Looks like a Programmer wasn't paying attention

Ok, so after some looking at all my companions of both high and low level Influence...since I knew that Companion Adjustments were going to hit today I was curious.

Ashara Zavros - Influence Level 22
Before Patch Changes (Buffed)
Mastery - 5132
Enduance - 5368 (or abouts)

After Patch Changes
(Unbuffed)
Mastery - 4300
Endurance - 4100
(Buffed)
Mastery - 4515
Endurance - 4305

Generally to those that know any sort of theorycrafting and can crack the numbers of balancing without being an employee on the programming teams for any game designer, this case: BioWare...likes to see what these changes bring.

Now here's the problem that I'm running into...And unfortunately I didn't think to write down all the numbers or remember them as I should have...bad on me this time around for it, here's Talos's information.

Talos Drellik - Influence Level 40
After Patch Changes
(Unbuffed)
Mastery - 4300
Endurance - 4100
(Buffed)
Mastery - 4515
Endurance - 4305

These are the exact same numbers as Ashara @ 22. Ashara's Presence modifier is 1100 pts as to where Talos's is 2000.

Breaking into their Damages and Bonus we see this.

Ashara: Numbers will be presented Unbuffed on the left and Buffed on the right.

Soothe - 1849-4313 | 2954 - 4418
Mending o/9s - 5277 | 5432
Ameliorating Force - 3619 | 3725
Dmg Stats
Damage - 2192-2207 | 2335-2350
Bonus Damage - 2162.4 | 2874.2
Bonus Healing - 1940 | 2050.5
Crit %/Multiplier - 24.39/60.18 | 29.72/60.18

Talos: In the same manner, but remember...He's Influence 40 = 18 levels higher than Ashara

Kolto Quick Scan - 3255-4719 | 3373-4837
Kolto Drip o/9s - 5876 | 6049
Progressive Kolto Scan o/3s - 4029 | 4148
Dmg Stats
Damage - 2665-2688 | 2827-2850
Bonus Damage - 2638.9 | 2801.1
Bonus Healing - 2367.4 | 2491.4
Crit %/Multiplier - 24.39/60.18 | 29.72/60.18

Now I'm sure the only thing that was intended to change were the base stats...but based on what I know of 8 different coding languages...someone dropped the ball on making sure it didn't break the companion system. (All numbers generated from In-Game on Lvl65 Sorc with all 4 class buffs and with Companions in Healing Roles)

There are no programmers involved in this game any more... it was an accountant's intern that messed up, and after the 2 hr induction and no training - what can you expect
Just like everyone else, here is my friends code , if you sub or re-sub we both get rewarded.

I'm glad you looked at the numbers ..ALL I have to say ..SWTOR finally disappointed me ..and I am considering throwing in the towel as this comp. cut was way off ..and has seriously taken the joy out of the game .
I am almost/if not at deaths door Every Big Fight and Comps.at level 18 aren't Healing as good as my healing comp pre.expac.
I mean they are bad and the Tanking is no better
Tsk Tsk Swtor ..
It's hard enough being Canadian and paying 24 $ a month while everyone else in the world pays 9-14$ ..
I was enjoying it so it was worth it but Right now since Cuts ..Shakes head ..Nope

What weapons are they wearing? I ask because there is a bug with comp weapons currently, and not many people are aware of it.
