I totally like the new bolster system. I quit the game a month ago, because it just isn't my thing to destroy ungeared players. Being a subscriber from the beginning I already have several geared toons. The outcome of a WZ was always dependent on who has more ungeared players on their team. So lately I stopped playing for objectives and was just trying to isolate another geared player for some 1:1 - usually always the same min/maxed guys.

Yesterday I logged in again - and pvp was so much fun! No stupid gear anymore and everyone on a equal basis. played just 5 matches, but absolutey enjoyed it! I had fights on an equal basis with guys I had never seen before! One match i got teamed up with a top geared premade and we almost lost!

I hope it stays like that.

Yeah, that's part of the problem right now in the pre55's. TTK is much faster now, but stuns and CC still have their original effect...this means that a stun now removes control from me during much more % of my lifespan then earlier, since the actual lifespan is shorter. -This ofc gives a frustrating feelling of allways getting stunned to death, specially if 2 or more burst DPSers are coordinated together with a stun and a 2-3 highdmg attacks each.

Another thing i was thinking about is the mainstat increases we can get from our skilltrees. Is there any reason to pick those up or will Bolster boost them to about the same levels anyway? Or are those 1-3% extra "Endurance" calculated last in order so that it adds on top of bolster and other increases/decreases?

EWH is a bad example. you should test with Tier1 L 55 pvp.
old elite gear is below 'new recruit entry level'

There's nothing wrong with bolster LOL. People don't seem to understand that we're scaled to level 55 and that we're gaining more from that. With the bolster being on slot now people don't understand nothing in the slot = level 55 and if there's something in the slot you get a slight buff off it.

Gear doesn't matter in the lower brackets guys and at 55 the bolster is only going to go to the base stats and not going to be better than the top tier pvp gear for the level 55 bracket.

Sense. I made some.

Congratulations.

Oh, btw they stated in this very thread that it's indeed bugged in more then 1 way.

Thank you for your contribution.

Thank you for that update Eric.

There's no such thing as perfect code.

You totally missed the second developer post where they stated that bolster is officially messed up.

See, now that sounds very much like the current state of the pre 55 wz are working as intended in spite of the earlier dev post saying its broke. "Questions/feedback" makes out that the playerbase just dont understand the issues which were pointed out and reported extensively on test. It could have been avoided for the most part if a sensible stats cap was put in place, you could have even put in a modifier for stances.

I did a few warzones on a 50 sniper and it was pure bs, i melted literally everything in full pve gear (i did not go naked) where a 5k+ hit was previously a rarity, almost everything leaving my gun hit for 7-8.5k. I was also incredibly mobile as a marksman spec, head towards them, leg shot (now 35 meters) outside any jump range, crouch, pew pew pew dead and next target.
