If everyone gets boosted to the stats of the highest level player in the warzone, what's the point of obtaining better pvp gear?

It doesn't work like that. Let's just say a level 50 is 10x stronger than a level 10.

Your stats are 5 Willpower, 5 Endurance. Your level 50 equivalent is 50 Willpower, 50 endurance.

Now put on an item of uberleetness that gives +1 Willpower +1 Endurance. Your stats are now 6 willpower, 6 endurance. Your level 50 equivalent is now 60 Willpower, 60 Endurance.

So gear is super important.

lvl 50 PvP sets have expertise, a PvP only stat. Boosts your damage, healing, etc... in PvP only.

You are very wrong.
Social features; cantinas, player housing, guild cities, these are what SWG did right.
PvP specific gear is the best way to kill PvP by segregating your player base.

Your idea of bolster is that you "copy" the stats of the highest player. That is not how it works. You are simply "augmented" to what your character/gear/etc would be like if you were his level.

In beta I remember seeing myself given about 11k or 12k health as a player in the 20s range. The guys who had hit 50 and had time to gear up had health around 17k or 18k. And like someone else said, the PvP specific stat will make a pretty huge difference.

No it doesn't. Expertise makes far less of an impact then people believe.

Expertise is not game breaking... Ppl need to understand this... I bet 98% of ppl in Wz don't even have 1 piece of expertise gear yet anyway
