I'm fine with them bolstering arenas. Arenas are a stripped down contest of skill, and the best team will win even if bolster keeps the gear levels similar (and fair). Bolster would also allow more casual players to experience arenas in the lower brackets without having to do the WZ grind first.

So yeah, don't care.

They said that arenas will be bolstered. I'll link Pistols thread about it, hold on.

Quote:
Bolster: In a nutshell, they are very aware of player concerns about Bolster, unhappy that they didn't get it working properly fast enough, and they plan on very much keeping it around. Bolster will in FACT, be applied to Arenas as well. I also asked why they decided to use Bolster as opposed to a more legit Recruit Mark III set, and essentially they felt too many fresh 50's (at the time) were simply not using it period. I was little irked at that, since tbh that's on the player, and others shouldn't be penalized for a drooler, but they felt if Bolster is applied then all parties would be essentially benefit for the better. They are continuing to improve Bolster, are aware of some issues that are still live, and as I said are very much committed to making it work. IMO, and I think many others agree, Bolster would be fine for PvP...it would just be nice to remove the "not-intended" issues that come along with it. Either way, it's here to stay so, our best bet is to keep reporting whatever issues we see on it, and get it posted, as that helped them a lot with the massive amount of feedback.

Indeed. I am in full support of bolster for arenas... when it's working. It's a great idea, but the fact that people are wearing trash and getting more stats than a player wearing PvE or PvP gear. Obviously the bugs aren't as severe as they were initially (I would indeed say the current situation is a vast improvement to the 900k hp exploits seen on the PTS)

Sorry for the tease but it's an in-depth answer and best to keep all the where, whys, and hows in one place.

Cheers!
Any updated ETA on this blog post? I think many of us are anxiously waiting to read it.

Agreed!
I cant wait to read this blog, then blog about the blog, while anticipating people blogging about my blog about the blog. Inevitably people will then blog about the blog that blogged about the blog that blogged about the original blog, regretably it will result in a "nerf smash/op/heals" and "fix bolster/premade" blog.
Cant wait!
