if this does not get patched before the 14th, Bioware has lost my sub.
If they don't fix something they will lose my sub, this bolster system just doesn't feel right, and the fact you can pvp naked and have better stats.

There should have been a gear check added after the nakid issues was found on the pts

Yea it's a trainwreck. My PvP geared characters are in EWH/WH and are around 1600 expertise. Meanwhile my mid 30s guardian with not exactly up to date mods has 2k. Main stat and health are much higher as well.

i just took off all of my gear and surprise (well not a surprise)! I have better stats running naked.

ty very much bw, i was dreaming to have the bolster that will bring on par players who actually spent a lot of time to get their gear with ones who are willing to run naked.

Well done indeed.

Is the feeling the same like playing a 49 toon in lowbie WZs?

Basically , the crappier the gear the better it is for you in pvp now.... Nothing fair about this... YOu get better stats for being bad or for just not having proper gear... So there is still a disadvantage, just in favor of the crappy geared players.

This is just a tad ridiculous. I played a few PvP matches after the patch went live this evening, and I don't think I've ever been so frustrated. I was on one team of all 50s, and we all had around the same health give or take a few thousand; nothing wrong with this. My next match, I was in a motley crew of random levels, and I noticed that a level 41 mercenary had over 10k health more than my level 50 assassin in PvP gear.

I proceeded to get 2 shot throughout the next matches by lowbies, even when I went Darkness. Before the patch? As Darkness I was pretty darn hard to kill, at least solo. As deception? I didn't rock the charts (only hit 50 a day or two ago on that toon), but I definitely held my own, got objectives, controlled the field, and still did decent damage.

Now I'm lucky if I live long enough to get 3 attacks off against a 38 sorc.
