Whats there to "learn"?

Not equipping any gear or using lvl 30+ pve gear instead of lvl 50 pvp gear for pvp?

Thanks, I can do that all by myself. Do I want to do it ,however?

My main is in a mix of WH/EWH, need it to be competitive and had to have it if I wanted to do ranked. Have always thought the gear grind in PvP is a waste because it makes PvP really unbalanced. But I have never twinked an alt. It was hit 10 and PvP the rest the way, buying level 20 and 40 PvP year. And if I came across snarky or what ever, that was not my intent. I apologize.

I think I will just wait until I find out exactly what level of gear exploits the system the best to give the highest stats. Adapting.

I've been doing WZ as a 50 for the past 3 hrs and I'M HAVING A BLAST! Seriously this is some of the most fun, balanced pvp ever. No, I'm not being sarcastic. Yes, I removed all my WH/EWH mods gear etc, replaced with lvl 30 greens, but then i found some of my lvl 40+ gear was BETTER than the lvl 30 greens. I'm still experimenting but it's really trial and error at this point. Seriously guys stop QQing so much and l2adapt. Now even lowbies can use their same gear and be on par with lvl 50s. Why is that so bad?
Newsflash numbskull there is no incentive to grind gear the way it is. Dear god its like banging your head on a wall with some buffoons. I know for a fact you can get just as high stats naked I have been testing it for hours. It isnt bad when you join the crowd and go naked or similar but why have commendations otherwise. Doesn't make sense.

the "meh" feeling one gets after each patch is getting booring real fast.
Been here since launch and as much as I hate to admit it, the PTS is nothing more than a PR vehicle for bloggers and guide authors. Rarely have I seen monumental changes in direction from proposed builds. This is no different.

It always seems they are afraid to admit something might not work right, and launch it anyway, knowing it has major issues.
Personally, I rather for things to remain status quo versus something this, Its ok to scrap a plan if it sucks.... Like my engineering teacher use to say; "If you screw up, sometimes its better to start over!"

Note to Mods/Devs:

I have asked a few times that you allow players to vote on proposed changes prior to implementation and I will ask again.

Before you do a monumental change, allow players a vote so at least you can have a tangible number to reference to for a change.... You have everyone's email.

Instead of using Social Media to ask the questions you do, how about you take polls on in game changes?

As of pre 2.0 50 was the highest level, it's only added on 5 levels for those that have actually purchased the expansion. There are plenty of people who have not. I wouldn't exactly call 50 PvP low level.

There's still going to be loads of people playing the 50 bracket even after the 14th, the whole naked rubbish needs sorted asap.
Low level is 10-54. No one should expect BW to cater to people who didnt buy the expansion.

As I wait for the game to download and update. I have been reading the pvp forums on Bolster and other players thoughts. It seems to me that this game have become the classic case of Socialism/ Communism but in a video game format, i.e. make everyone equal. Take from the pvp players that spend 100's of hours grinding WH or EWH gear, and now taking that gear (or making it worthless) and giving someone that doesn't work as hard a better advantage. Take from the producers(rich) and give to the non-producers (poor) = Socialism/Communism. I see that in this game every time I play, reward everyone no matter what they do. There are no winners or losers. And if something is difficult make it easy for everyone to achieve. This game will not last long if they don't fix the Bolster.

As you can see, the stats improve slightly taking off the gear even with a lowbie. So it isn't just pvp gear with expertise that is throwing things out.
It's just amazing how this could happen after we were told how intelligent and adaptive the new bolster would be
