All I would like bioware to do (which I think is pretty fair) would be for the people that have BM pieces and have spent hours getting those pieces is to be able to turn said pieces in for war hero equivalents when 1.6 goes live. PLEASE!!

Not going to happen because this is a gear grind game. A new tier will be introduced when you just finished grinding your EWH to keep you playing.

Free gear for everyone is a good thing for competativity. Not a bad thing.

Gear doesn't keep people playing, not serious PvP players. Gear is the only thing that stands between balance to the bone of the game, best case scenario we would have it's factor removed alltogether.

Why get rid of BM gear at all then. Just make another level. But it kind of sucks that someone that dings 50 on day 1 of 1.6 can start grinding a higher gear level then I have been doing right now. I have 3 toons at 50 and only one is full war hero (which I am fine with having to now grind EWH because everyone will have the same grind) To take BM gear out altogether screws my other two toons. Just leave it in and have another tier. That is the most logical thing to do that would make everyone happy.

Uhhhh. What about the people who have WH pieces who have spent dozens of hours getting those pieces. Should they be able to turn said pieces in for elite war hero pieces when 1.6 goes live? Of course not!

No. There's a progression element included for a reason. WH gear will be all but given away next patch. Rejoice; there's very little difference between WH and EWH, so they're fixing the gear gap.

BM gear will still EXIST; it just won't be sold any longer.

Then it doesn't make any sense then. Because they are removing battlemaster gear from the game entirely. So does this mean we are getting a refund on points or is our pre existing gear being upgraded? This is my question. I don't mind pvp when the pug team I'm with is not going against a premade. I really think premades are whats killing pvp. If they think they are so bad, why are they not doing rated warzones??

Yeah I PvP because it's fun and would probably PvP without the gear grind. However it seems most playing this game wouldn't PvP if they couldn't get new better gear all the time.
