The person I responded to has BM armor, made evident by the fact that he whined about wanting a refund of it.

But regardless, there is also another solution... Let's see if you can figure this one out....

Yes I did whine, I whined about the fact that I transferred all of my normal WZ Coms to Ranked Coms in order to buy WH, then being told that WH is now gonna cost normal Coms instead of Ranked Coms. And because of the '30 Normal Coms gets you 10 Ranked Coms' thing I've just lost a hell-of-alot of Normal WZ Coms for nothing.

And after putting effort into getting my Battlemaster and now WH's gonna cost the exact same and BM is gonna be virtually extinct in the near future, yes, I do want a refund.

Using this logic I should get a refund on my 3 year old car because it's sold cheaper now than it was when I bought it?

The logic was that when I have to turn in my Ranked WZ Coms for Normal Coms to buy WH, I'll lose alot of my Normal WZ Coms that I traded in for Ranked WZ Coms to buy WH in the first place.

Depends. If I was vsing a Premade, then no, I did not have fun. But I had to stick it out for the match so I got my WZ Coms at the end. Ofcourse I had no idea that they'd all of gone to waste because of Patch 1.6. Besides, when grinding coms for Gear it doesn't matter if you have fun, it matters how much Coms you get.

It matters to me, if I didn't have ANY fun during the grind for gear then I would've just quit the game.

Again, they'd all gone to "waste" if you didn't have any fun. I have 5 level 50's. 1 warhero and 4 battlemasters, this change doesn't affect me not one bit. I saw this coming, and even if I didn't I still wouldn't care. I had fun while doing it.

I didn't say I had no fun. But it isn't exactly all that exciting when you're stuck guarding a Turret/Node for the entire match, which is what I do 9/10 times on my Sniper. It also makes you paranoid that there's a stealther trying to ninja cap the Turret/Node, which isn't all that fun either, knowing that you could lose the turret any second and it'd be your fault.

Ofcourse I've only been ninja capped a couple of times, and that was back when I first started PvP. Nowadays, thanks to those two experiences, I commonly Orbital Strike the turret all the time to prevent Ninja Caps.

I had better get a refund from ALL the BM gear I've bought

I wonder what excuse people will use for not doing ranked now that the gear gap will be non-existent.

you should be pleased because you get zipped up on par with war hero geared people...and you complaining that you get what i had to grind months for.. for free. If u have full bm, as soon as u log in your shot up to my gear level, or i'm dropped down to yours... however you wanna look at it ......yeah that must really suck :/

if anything it's the people like me with full augmented war hero gear that should be mad... i was finished my pvp grind , i worked hard to obtian all those ranked comms and i was enjoying not having to worry about comms and dailies but just playing with end game gear, now i have to do that all over again .not to mention you get to purchase wh gear for regular comms bypassing the 3-1 ratio I and many others had to do.............. yeah you should be complaining /facepalm

One of the reasons I'm complaining is because of the 3-1 ratio: for the past few weeks I've been trading in Normal WZ Coms for Ranked Coms so I could buy WH, then I get told that they're making WH cost regular Coms. I've just lost a hell-of-alot of Normal WZ Coms for nothing.

Infact I think this is the 4th time I've said that in this Thread.
