@Rain-Gnyu Without even clicking that, its bananamana I bet.... I heard a lot of nonsense and had to stop at the suggestion that Stat III > Mastery III xD And also I had to wait to get home to double check, but you cant even see anyones BP from inspecting them. Who is going around inspecting people then going to the 3rd party calculators to figure out what it is JUST to talk down to them? Because, its impossible to "BP shame" without taking the time to put someones elses gear into a calculator, or having them state what their BP is, and I haven't seen anyone waste their time doing that on my ship. What you can see however, is if someone doesn't have their gear upgraded, augmented, and weapon potential'd... But there is no BP value present on other-player inspections.
Unfortunately those pesky influencers were the reason people were trying HTDP with un-enhanced novel gear. Need to just disregard that there vid.... PSO2/NGS is not just skill based. Gear is important, and BP matters when used correctly. And on that, I will say, BP does need some tweakage. For instance, a Hunter/Fighter should get no BP from having Ranged or tech potency augmentation unless they also buffs melee potency and/or other things, and gigant Unit shouldnt give all that much more BP over unit one level below it (16bp I believe it was). For the most part tho, I dont think anyone is cheating the BP system like that at end game, but only to get passed the stories BP gates. All of my augments for example are relevant to being hu/fo, so MY bp is definitely a representation of my characters potential.
They'll probably change their tune once they add UQ difficulties or extra area tiers that require like 1400+ BP for entry. Or, they'll rage like they couldn't see that coming..
