Bolster has caused more problems than fixed.

@blasterporrf, just no. you should not be having ot "forgo everything but story" to be able to enjoy pvp and not get destroyed, like how it was.i remember going for my WH while i had only the recruit gear, and no matter what i did, no amount of skill could get you that kill if they had even one grade better gear, because they were doing more damage, more heals, more of everything, so it was to the point where it was futile to even try, like they were talking about in their post. the only way ot get anything done was for several players to go after one that had better gear, and even then they didnt have too hard of a time tanking it if there was a semi competent healer on their team. so in short, they have done nothing to dedication, only raised the skill level of the game.
Sorry friend, but you don't have a clue. One gear level off was non-competitive? If you had put in the time, you could have had your EWH weapon at level 50, or EWH earpiece and implants - as soon as you dinged 50. Optimized WH was only a few points off of full EWH standard set. If you couldn't compete one gear level off, there is no help for you, and it comes as no surprise that you are a fan of this patch.

This "fix" didn't raise the skill level. What a completely ludicrous thing to say. It's a free pass to PVE'ers like yourself in your awesomesauce recruit gear, who didn't put in the time to excel in PVP while penalizing those that did. That's what it does.

Does bw even know what they are doing when it comes to PvP....these aren't minor failures these are MASSIVE. I'm not saying I can do a better job at it BUT....I'm not the one cashing in on this product neither! Get it together BW you are starting to become known for a company that every time a patch comes something drastic is going to break.......not good

remove bolster from lvl 55 pvp bracket, or make it not give any expertise
since now for wz you can have pve gear!!!!
Which is wrong!

This. Is. Stupid.

I've been min-maxing my PvP gear as I go. So now all my gear just has an expertise mod here and an expertise enhancement there. I went from 2018 expertise to 993. And everyone is telling me it's better to just use my PvE gear now? And I'm still confused about my expertise crystals.

Does this follow ANY amount of logic?

What the ******* is bioware thinking? They asume we are all on pve servers? Bioware you do realize now that people who have more time to play than others aka the people who play swtor 24/7 will have full 55 pvp gear by now. They will 1 shot everyone in lvling zones. At least before due to the expt on Elite Warhero gear we had a chance vs them before. Now we just get 1 shot. Its an instant death. If you are going this route remove expt from ALL gear. Make expt ONLY apply in WZ it is the only fair thing to do!

Alternatively you can not defeat the Darkside without using it.

My thought was that PvEers should have a chance to PvP. In my augmented WH gear I could compete in 10 mans etc. Anyone who walks into a WZ with no exp would just get rofl stomped no matter the skill level.

However, I am not liking the fact that in order to please a few they are hurting the many.
