NO, Bolster DOES affect 55 PVP as well, so yeah...not much else to say about that

PVP gear trades other stats for expertise,

1.Wear PVE gear get all the nice high stats pvpers have to sacrifice for pvp gear, and get free expertise from bolster
2. ROLLFACEONKEYBOARD

Correct me if I am wrong, I think they meant they stop bolstering at 50 with the pre 2.0 system.

You misread the entire posting. They were talking about the "old bolstering", not the new one.

"Currently, Bolster is setup to bring characters up to a set level of stats that are appropriate for entry-level PvP. The amount of stats given to a character is based on their level, more stats for lower level, to bring them up to this “entry-level” PvP base. At level 50 we stop bolstering characters, which you can see adds to the huge drop off of effectiveness once a character goes from 49 to 50."

The new Bolstering will be in ALL warzones from lvl 10 to 55.

While I was sceptical about Bolstering in lvl 55 from the beginning, I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But seeing how they screwed up bolstering in lvls 10-54, I am starting to expect the worst. We will see.

Bolster will probably ruin this game and make the dev team a laughing stock if they don't fix it.... This is why we had a PTS.. but I guess they didn't want to listen to anyone and went ahead with this disaster... Any other dev team that goes into one of these warzones and notices that taking off your gear gives you higher stats will just lol BW and then make them the butt (literally) of their jokes...

I know i read some concerns about bolster being bugged on PTS forums, and that ppl could run around naked etc - but i (stupidly?) assumed they obviously would have fixed that before pushing it on Live...
OMG!!!

This is sooooo funny... I have been PVPing naked... I even equipped a light sabre with no crystal/mods/enhancements <it still shows as a red light sabre>... my stats sky rocketed

I have just equipped a full set of armour now... no mods/enhancements/armouring... I will switch back and forth when I go into PVP

Doesn't help that when your team is full of and 30s and 40s..and the entire enemy team is all lvl 50s..and so our team is died in seconds..whole team waiting at respawn..what 10 seconds after match starts...
