According to patch notes on PTS, it's "no longer available." So what the hell do fresh 50s do now to close the gap between Recruit Mk-2 and War Hero?

warhero = the new battlemaster. warhero no longer needs ranked marks.

Really hope they make Battlemaster the new Recruit, so now fresh 50s will get a free full BM set instead of MK-2.

The gear gap for fresh 50s is now a lot larger but it will be super easy to get War Hero gear which is only like a 2-4% difference between EWH.

I guess it sucks for all those people who grinded for ages before. I'm going to collect full battlemaster and keep it in my bank just for the fact it can never be obtainable after 1.6

They better give me a refund for all the WZ coms I spent on Battlemaster.

IA Field Tech Battlemaster looks epic, but the IA WH is one of the ugliest things I have ever seen. Totally ruins the awesome effect my Sniper has.

****, BioWare, you're pissing me off more every day. Nerf my very first character EVERY gosh darn patch (Arsenal Merc), take out some great looking gear and replace it with generic stuff you can find ANYWHERE else (Hydra Gear set with a look similar to Boba fett's gear), merge servers so I get more lag from too many people in one space and have a hard time getting good names, and now this! I had better get a refund from ALL the BM gear I've bought

What are you complaining about? the difference between recruit mk2 and Bm is minimal and You can get war hero in a matter of days. Quit bloody ************ its actually becoming pathetic now.


NEVER HAPPY this game should be called.

There's a solution in game for that.
