How hard you hit, and how hard you get hit is based upon your, and your opponent's gear. That is a fact, and it cannot be disputed.

Are there OP specs? Yes there are, and better gear only enhances that issue.
Not true. And in the end of the day warzones are about team play. You don't win wzs for number of 1v1 wins.

Skill above all. Warzones are a team sport. Play as a team and you will win. Ranked are different cause these players are already skilled and know how to play as a team. Maximising your team effort there means getting a good team of classes and gear.

Gear has a lot to do with it. Critical, surge, expertise, etc.

Of course you do need skill, but to completely ignore gear like it's a non-factor is just pure arrogance.
