I hate to sound like a Republican (not even from 'merica), but watching people get gear welfare cheques bothers those of us who earned ours.
This ^, those of us that do ranked warzones and have fully optimized gear earned it the hard way. I actually earned my war hero gear before the server merges by doing regular warzones. Kinda sucks to see people gearing up this way because the fact is that grind is what makes you a stronger pvp'er. All that time spent in regular warzones is experience that'll make you better in the long run. Because of this there are people that are fully geared DPStunnelchasing everywhere except the node and other variants of baddy behavior.
