To me, an MMO is about progressing your character from nothing to something .. This includes the grind for higher levels and the grind for better gear .. Am I missing something? I'm talking about PvP and the bolster system ... The fact that you can go naked into a warzone and have bolster make your existing gear worth more than a player with EWH gear, is just embarrassing.

Comparing TOR 2.0 to the NGE change is beyond awful QQ'ness.

Seriously, stop being so *$Y@(Y dramatic.

So wait. This going to try to become a first person shooter and consolidate classes and not give you any talents to build or spec?

I would say this isn't even the CU because even that messed with how fast abilities fired

Unless 2.0 is bringing some FPS type mmo then no, it wont be the NGE that killed SWG. The NGE was a total revamp of the game, going from 32 classes down to 8(?) and just being complete ****. Nothing deserves to be compared to that mess.

You can't. If you think a player in random greens will have their bolster equal EWH you are fooling yourself. The Dev's have alreay stated that the Bolster equals you out to the Recruit set. This is why they are removing the Recruit set from the game. Players in EWH will still have a big advantage over players in lesser gear.

See the pertinent comment from the patch notes below:

Quote:
Bolster is now based on item rating rather than character level. Recruit-level gear is no longer available, as players will be automatically bolstered to this level of item power if they do not meet it naturally.

I think it will at the below level 55 pvp. You will be able to level naked! Its the developers ploy to get rid of War Hero sets and getting people to buy their expansion.
