@CG_Kozispoon You recently replied to and closed this thread, because the team found no recent changes with Sith Trooper: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/SITH-TROOPER-PROTECTION-UP-DOES-NOT-SHOW-UP/td-p/6626415
However, here is a video of Sith Trooper gaining protection up under Darth Nihilus lead last year (timestamped to Crimson Barrage): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTOL_LvobaU&feature=youtu.be&t=3m14s
And here is the video you've already seen from the recent patch, showing no protection up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sL5lkkeezkM&feature=youtu.be
The bug occurs specifically with Darth Nihilus lead. Maybe the team didn't test it under Nihilus lead.
Darth Nihilus lead has been non-meta for a very long time, so I don't know how old this bug / change is, since few players have used the Trooper / DN combo before the recent Sith revamp.
However, it's possible this is a recent change, and the team missed it because it was a change to Darth Nihilus's code, or to protection up in general, or to how it's displayed (rather than a change to Sith Trooper's code itself).
Thank you for this. Yes there may be no confirmed changes per Dev, but then that means what IS happening is a bug and therefore needs to be addressed! Can't wait to hear the response here! Thanks for using my vid to prove your point! Makes me feel all important and stuff! :D
@EA_MindTricks Look at DN leader ability.
It used to set protection to 0 (don't remember the exact wording.
now it is "Modify stat Max Protection by -1000% (multiplicative)"
This change was made so that sith under DN lead could not gain protection between GW nodes or encounters.
So before it made protection 0 now it makes protection a very large negative number. I am pretty sure what is happening is this very large negative number is enough to "swallow" the protection up that Sith Trooper is recieving
