You can save comms from level 40 onwards. Did you not do that? They increased the amount you could save and made war hero very very cheap.
If you didn't save your comms unlucky but at least you get a free starter set. Better than what I had when I hit 50.
Doesn't take long to farm gear and augment it but if you just chuck in the towel then you will never succeed in a game of this type, no offense.
So your stance is that you should be willing to pay to have no fun in a game so someday you will have fun? Really is that what a GAME should be?
They should of made recruit gear with a ton of health and damage mitigation that can be only worn under X valor level. that would of orientated new players to pvp and at least keep higher geared players from quitting WZs with to many recruit geared players on their team....
