TANGENT: is there a post somewhere that clearly lays out the goals of endgame bolster? Given my experience in the huttball grabbing macro thread I realize that BW and I have very different concepts of clearly laid out.

Presumably one of these would be:
  • Using a bolstered PvE item should never be better than using the corresponding Partizan item
Just tired of seeing garbage development by amatuers; here's a thought for your team, feel free to pass it on Eric...

If you want to introduce Bolster to the highest bracket, develop a working bolster first.

Sry Eric, 3 months of this is old.

At this point I agree completely. It's better to take a beat down for a week or two while gearing up than keep playing under a broken system.

But that's not why they gave Bolster to 55's....they gave it to the PvE'ers who are too lazy to get their own gear.

Bolster wasn't for PvP'ers...but for the carebears.

this.

its getting insulting at this point. a PvE gearing bug would not last a week, let alone 3 months.

remove if from 55, give everyone free Recruit gear mk3 that is 5-10% worse than Partisan gear. allow crafters to make a set of armor that is slightly better than Recruit mk3 gear if you want crafters to be part of the PvP gearing process. but get bolster out of 55s. it sucks.

the concept was very, very good. yet for some reason the devs have made it the most convoluted and complicated thing ive seen in an MMO. nobody knows how it really works, not even you guys. so please get rid of it.

this game is an open beta pistols...

its actually a pretty common thing now, for open beta to be treated as a live game in order to generate cash flow. ive been playing Mech Warrior: Online which is the same kind of thing.

Much thanks for your help Eric, but at this point, I'm of the decided opinion that the Bug is Bolster, not that Bolster has bugs.

Anyway, cheers and thanks again. You seem to be the only BW employee that actually reads the PvP Forums and I'm very appreciative of that.

Either way, it is in the combat teams hands for investigation as we speak and as soon as I have exact details I will pass them back on to you!
