And this IS the point. Comms are a waste of time for player that are appropriately "ready" to Que for ranked. Another issue is the fact that PvP consumables are better to obtain via regs. That needs to change ASAP....
I would be fine with:
- top tier gear is purchased with reg comms (BW has to have a gear grind, right? Not possible to have no grind)
- the only think ranked comms are good for is consumables
or, at the very least, make grinding regs the most efficient way to get gear so that PvE folks who are merely farming PvP for gear will avoid ranked because regs is better for farming.
