pretty sure that if you dont want to get your butt smashed in regularly, you are going to want a full set of PvP gear. its very easy to tell who doesnt have PvP gear; i hit them for 11k

A *********** 2 page "guide" on how bolster works. Thats the messed up system you want? I would rather say to someone... put your "new upgraded not much different then WH recruit gear on."

The fact that it is 2 pages proves the system is broken. You didn't think people understood expertise?? ONE number... now toss people into the ring with a hidden number nerf system.

The only gear progression now is understanding and reading 2 page guides that will change every 4 weeks after they realize this is broken.

You know why they are not showing us bolster numbers on a tab outside of a WZ? Because its that messed up

edit: i feel better now just pissed at the current state. I could swallow all these pointless 1000hrs of developer work if they produced ANY damn new wz. Anything! Make a hutball that you hold and the longer your team holds it you get points. Anything... I would take a freaking circle death pit right now

Plus - getting stomped on just ISN'T FUN! Isn't that why we play games -- to have fun?
I can't let this pass like that.

You learn how to play when you are low geared, because you have to play a lot better than the other guy with better gear to beat him. And i played a concealment operative in 1.4 and learned that way, and god ops were so meh back then (still are?).

You learn were you should and shouldn't position your self, so that you don't get "slammed and killed in no time flat", because frankly, if that was the case, it just meant that you were going 1 vs 5, didnt make a difference if you were geared.
I'm not against the bolster system, but until it works, remove it from lvl 55, new recruit gear, and when they polish their *****, they can throw it out again.

On the open world matter, what the f*ck are you saying? No expertise? So the pvp gear, that has overall mediocre stats compared to its equivalent in pve gear, should be a ****in boulder? NICE THINKING MAN use your brain before vomitting like that.

Make it look different to distinguish and maybe add a different set bonus that is beneficial to the way you attained it...but overall, make them the same.
Amen. Or gear could just be clothes a bring no bonus, everybody with same base stats, no way of improving and we're on.

im sorry but the lack of any word from the impudent CS team in any of the pvp threads, should say how much they care about the pvp system, so long as people continue to sub for the game, they dotn care they'll ignore the community as does any corporation.

And these are the corporations that go bankrupt in the end. EA stock dropped by 50% over the last 5 years. The word is swtor lost a good percentage of subscribers since the expansion. Pop times for WZs and FPs have increased lately, and I play on the Harbinger, which is one of the most populated servers.

I was hanging on my subscription by a thread, hoping version 2.1 will provide resolution to the PvP major issues and class balance 2.0 introduced. It did not. So I can't justify paying $15/per month on going basis in the games current stats.

Before the expansion, I would highly recommend swtor to anyone, after the expansion...
