And that gets you to full BM.. which is enough to be a decent target for anyone wearing augmented war hero. This is the same problem that WoW had, where those with great armor could ignore everyone not in great armor. When a class can go 1v2 there is a problem. When a class is considered dead weight by everyone else...
Don't get me wrong, min/maxing is what makes the game fun for people who play lots... but the new player shouldn't be entirely useless for more than 200 matches to get some war hero armor.
When you are ignored in full BM by the WH and you fail to kill him. The problem is not the gear here, it's YOU.
