For the start, at least, there will be so little variety of gear that I doubt bolster would be necessary.

Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if they mixed level 1s and level 55s together because in reality (judging by what I interpreted as 'benefits to your ground character') people will start at the same point, no matter what level they are.
How dare you apply logic to BW regarding pvp!? I will await an official statement =)

Yup! The current plan is that you will see it on PTS before it goes live. I have no information to release yet as to "when" though.

I don't care for the PvP in SWTOR but I will definitely be playing this. That said, Bioware, know this, I expect you to have singeplayer and possibly coop PvE missions for this as well, not necessarily for the release of this but at some point and not a year after this.
I honestly don't see that happening, PVE missions in space would actually have a development cost while PVP map can be pumped out at little to no cost to the company. I'm not trying to be negative because most folks here know what a huge supporter of the game I have been in the past but , I see PVP map after PVP map and a new avenue to sell cartel coins and that's it. The PVE players will be left out of this completely.

If I'm wrong a dev can happily pop in to correct me.

I've been expecting at least off-rails, co-operative PVE and PVP for a "Super-Secret-Space Project". It's kind of a letdown if it isn't.
Check the page - it says OTHER GAMEPLAY MODES!! And that it wil evolve over time!!!
. Shine on, you crazy pixel.

Funny post! The nine circles of SW:TOR PvP hell

I really hope the devs will increase the re-fire delays between shots, with that speed no skill with aiming is involved, just hold down a button and spray.

The big question is: WHEN? Not so much when it comes out, because we know that, but what that time means.

In all seriousness, this brings up a big question. When is 2.5 hitting PTS/Live? Will it even exist?

2.5 is likely to be release along side of the 2nd Expansion on December 3, just like 2.0 was release alongside the first Expansion. December 3 is 9 weeks away from 2.4, which if you take away Thanksgiving, it fits into their plan of an update every 8 weeks.

2.0 WAS the expansion. If that did happen here, it'd be 3.0.

Rise of the Hutt Cartel was the expansion that you had to pay for; 2.0 was the update that was for free. Also, they mentioned that there would be a 2.5 and 2.6 update, so we are not just skipping to 3.0
