Looks like the pts never changed one bit BW don't have a frikken clue

lol at "fair" & "even" terms. You grind to rise in level, you grind to get BiS. Giving people stats that you earned makes the whole time and effort pointless. Bolster was meant to make lowbies competitive ENOUGH to hang in the larger pools of WZ levels. Ideally WZ would be grouped tighter 10-20, 30-40, etc. Obviously you'd never get a Que pop. And if the 2.0 Bolster gives PvE gear equal/better expertise in WZ , then PvP gear in PvE should give a main stat "bolster".

All I can say is the main reason I quit WOW was the way they handed out everything i spent years getting. I'm already getting that vibe in SWTOR.
Stop exploding you cowards!

The fact that they think it's a good idea to reduce dmg taken from expertise and deal more player dmg at the same time..... what's the point of having expertise in the first place?

With this kind of mindset ^, the pvp in this game is gonna remain crap.
Dude did you not read any of the **** I been saying. The fights are not longer at all , they ARE shorter, and **** is out of hand. *********** MMO noobs.

Get in there and play a game for yourself dude instead of talking about it on the forums... Obviously you don't pvp or you would have noticed some of this by now.

in my fully augmented EWH set, I have ~2000 main stat

if I take literally every single item I have off (i.e., going completely naked), I gain 200 main stat, for a total of ~2200. in addition, my endurance and expertise go up, though I don't remember by how much

if this does not get patched before the 14th, Bioware has lost my sub.

If you just separate pvp by 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-55 Cross server you would not have to worry about **** like this.

It has changed, but my guess would be they didn't test level 50 with BiS in the 30-54 bracket since almost all testing on the PTS was level 55. At level 55 I'm guessing the good level 50 gear will bolster like all the other gear people are using (or even at level 53-54 using the good 50 gear). So either just an oversight or just a straight up bug.

Is it a fact that something is messed up with bolster or are people not giving it a chance? -I was looking forward to pvp tonight after work =(

I know i read some concerns about bolster being bugged on PTS forums, and that ppl could run around naked etc - but i (stupidly?) assumed they obviously would have fixed that before pushing it on Live...
