I just got a bg and was 1 shotted by 3 different people in the first 3minutes of playing.  I was level 39...and killed by an 89, 85 and 80.  They were not mentored to 30, nor was I.  I'm in the best possible gear at 39 w/max toughness, max aa's...

So...BGS are completely broke now?

Good job guys!

I think it is a joke. A very bad one. If this so called balanced was outside of a BG for example when you chrono mentor and you get one shotted by a mob can you imanging the screaming that would take place?

I just want to know if BGs are working as intended.  As it stands, you clearly need to be 80+, maxed in AAs and in raid gear to have any chance at not dying almost instantly.  And I'm not interested in that, so if that means bgs are not an option anymore, then I'll gladly spend my time elsewhere.

Per game update notes:

Damage, healing, and survivability in the 30-89 bracket are equalized.  Having additional AAs or better gear will still give minor advantages.

Can a dev please respond if bgs are working as intended?

80+ characters were getting more power than intended.  This has been adjusted and will be hotfixed soon.

A very bad joke, indeed.  Well, T4 BGs have officially been put to rest.  So sad.....
