Communication is key. Never forget that.

I'm sorry that you have an issue with players looking for feedback about their classes concerns which were not discussed at all during the PTS. Please continue to make a fool of yourself on the forums though so you won't be allowed to post here anymore.

I've got a blog post coming up explaining in detail the reasoning behind these bracket changes for 2.0. Stay tuned!
So where is this blog post you speak of? And please, DO answer the question everyone has asked since the new bolster announcement; Will bolster reduce stats for those "overgeared" as well as increase those "undergeared"?

Then carry on explaining how you balanced this against incentive to get the gear to start with.

This should have been explained in details before anything went to PTS tbh, so we could offer feedback before anything was decided...

agreed, having better stats w/o augmented WH gear was weird - and a bit unjustified

This is something I would like to know...

Min/Maxing is done. Sure you can still do it....the question remains why would you. Would you really invest all those hours of min/maxing gear to get a 2% bonus on someone that came to the game naked?

In short, yes... I would. I could careless what other people are doing. It is my duty as a PvP participant to push my stats as high as they can go. While getting 2% would not dominate my life, it would be a long term goal.


But 2% is neither here nor there. No one really knows what the fallout is at this point. The new PVP gear has way more than 2% on WH gear and the whole "naked" bolster was not coded correctly from the start. It's irritating, but we just have to accept the "wait and see" mentality yet again. Hopefully since we are subjected to this again(**1.2cough;cough**, **1.3coughcough**,etc, etc), required changes to the system and/or brackets will take hours or days, instead of weeks, or months.
PvP Gear Viability? Read this first.

On the PTS I noticed that my WH and EWH had their expertise stat increased. As in the armorings had 39 aim 39 end and 68 expertise and mods and enhancements had 41 expertise I wonder if this will be true in 2.0 or if that was just for testing

Please people stop acting like your one class is the only one that has problems

Wheres the 2% come from? the bolster system was bugged, Therefore we can't tell how much the bonus is really?. But it does seem to look that it won't be worth min maxing anyway. Or at least there wont be any rush to it. Its obvious what Bioware are doing they are trying to cater to the idiot's, Unless they replace the gear incentive with something worth while i don't see the point in pvping unless on the odd occasion with friends.

This.

The 30-54 bracket will be horrible for players under 40 or maybe under 50, too...

The 50+ got all important talents ( the 31 talent maybe the most important ), nearly all of the skills and they have equip. What should a <50 do against a real 50 with that?

I think this bracket is some kind of nonsense. They just should have made 50-55 for the first weeks ( not for rated ) and then, when most people are 55 change it to 50-54 / 55. But 30-54 is a bit crazy.
