PVP is over in this game. I just had enough when I heard that there will be bolster on 55 lvl. It is borderline retarded. I play only pvp and this was the drop that spilled the glass.
PVP was never much in this game without guild wars , possibility of dueling on fleet or any other form of competitive content between players. As a PVP player you log on , click que and thats about it.
I unsubed yesterday. Hasta la vista.

I hope there isn't bolster in ranked because I don't think you should play there until you are ready to stand on your own and prove your metal.

That said, I am fortunate to be on a server that has PvP outside of warzones. It will be reason enough for me to work on my gear. Not to mention that you still do better in warzones with better gear, there is just supposed to be less of a gap.

On the other end of the spectrum, I have a my first toon that is not much better geared than recruit because I didn't start PvPing on him until the 40s in level. Other toons I have, have more BM gear which is now obsolete. I will be more inclined to turn and start working on them again in 2.0. I also have other toons that I have been leveling and I intended to hold their comms rather than buy armor as soon as I hit 50 like I did the other toons that have BM, until I am ready to use them on some level 50 PvP just due to the fact of what I buy now might become obsolete before that point.

TLDR: I have toons in a ton of different situations as far as gear and I actually find them all benefiting in some way or the other come 2.0.

Its been done with champion gear and bm gear and wh gear now ewh gear. Not that is was fun to have that "I earned this uber gear now its meh" feeling, but don't feel like you are alone.

Maybe you'll actually have to use teamwork and individual skill?

There are no negative bolster effects. They aren't logically necessary.
Pretty much this. Bolster helps, but it is not in any way optimized. A min maxed conqueror set is far more effective than pve gear plus bolster, ewh plus bolster, or naked plus bolster. The funny thing is, naked plus bolster is probably the most effective option until you are in at least min maxed partisan gear.

That's the nature of MMO gear progression mang. It's not just a PvP Gear thing, PvE gear becomes obsolete over time too.

On a more somber note, if you think your PvP gear is worthless now, just wait until 2.0 with the new Bolster system where most PvE hits/barrels/mods will be BIS thanks to the backazzwards bolster buff mechanics. Right now on the PTS your toon actually has better stats and more expertise without wearing any gear in WZs...
