I think it was a great move and boo-freaking-hoo to the people that can't bear 2-shotting things instead of 1-shotting things and if this is all it takes for them to quit and forget about 99.993% of the rest of the game then I fell so sorry for them.
Oh yes, nothing makes you feel heroic like fighting a level 12 Darth Baras.

I like it. It discourages strong players from traveling to low level planets just to gank people. It was a problem before level shifting and seems much less prevalent now.

You know what else discourages high-level characters from going to low-level worlds to gank people? Playing in a PVE zone.

Personally it's never been am issue for me. Generally what I do is get through the starting planet and then just heroic grinding. Once I finished all heroics using the xp boost I'm usually close to level 60.

The gear rewards from Georgia usually stat cap me for the zone. Even capped, mobs are easy to beat and can usually kill them quickly.

I don't know about turning it off, but it would be nice if there was:

A) some consistency

or

B) you could change how close to them you are, in level (within a certain range)


Cause some areas, you outlevel such that they're gray (particular on starter planets), sometimes you're synced to same level, sometimes to two levels higher, sometimes four levels higher. It's all over the map and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.

What if pvp players want to play with people around their own level on a fair playing field? If someone is a low level PVPer and wants to do that with other low levels they should be able to enjoy the experience without some level 65 dude coming and killing them.

The game should be fun and fair for people of all levels. Ruining someone else's enjoyment isn't okay, it's mean. If you want to do pvp you should be doing it with players of your own level not by bullying others.

Tell me the truth.

How many times did you personally experience getting ganked by a high level player? (Hearsay doesn't count)

I was on TOFN in 2014 and had it happen a few times. I don't know what it was like in the years after that.

It was a great move, it was an act of desperation. Imagine the game wouldnt get level sync, we would be lvl 65 and everything else apart from KOTFE would be 60 and below!! The game would die since there would be nothing to do since Bioware can provide updates like other games, just story.

Sure, it saved the game from dying, but at least provide an option to turn it off, its very very easy, there were even bugs at start that allowed ppl to bypass it. So making a turn off option would be a piece of cake!! They would at least see how many would turn it off and how many not!!! GIVE US A CHOICE Bioware!! They matter!!!
