Nah, it's just that max gear is obtained mostly(1) by RNG, and *which* relic you get when you get a relic is *also* chosen by RNG.

(1) Sources are:
* Command Crates that you get as you earn "Galactic Command" ranks at level 70. These are entirely RNG.
* Tokens that drop from bosses in Operations. The RNG in these is more to do with how the Ops group chooses who gets them.
* The same tokens, but bought for "Unassembled Components" that you earn in Warzones and GSF. The RNG here is of the "heads I win, tails you lose" type unless you group up with a competent group, but it affects only how many matches it takes before you can buy a piece of gear.
