Probably whatever is the next in the line of pvp titles. I think it might be Conqueror or Warlord, but not sure.

With any luck... no more gear upgrades.

They actually had a similar problem in LotRO with their crafting tiers. When it started, there was
  • Apprentice / Master Apprentice
  • Journeyman / Master Journeyman
  • Expert / Master Expert
  • Artisan / Master Artisan
  • Master / Grand Master

Then, when their level cap increased, they had to introduce a new crafting tier, but... "Grand Master" is kinda tricky to exceed. They added Supreme / Supreme Master, which caused the same problem when the level cap went up again.

To avoid ending up with stuff like "Spiffy" and "Awesome", they ended up gong with tiers based on game regions - Westfold and Eastemnet.

Perhaps TOR could do the same for PvP titles / armour?
  • Coruscant War Hero
  • Alderaanian War Lord
  • Tarisian Conqueror

Something like that, perhaps?

One thing for sure, that will not happen. Otherwise PvE gear can't grow either, and that will stall the games player progression for them.

Yes I'm hoping for that as well. Shiny cosmetic armor, pets, mounts and titles all restricted by rating for the PvP elite.
I believe that PvP armor that affects performance should be the same for everyone. And you can't really upgrade anymore really with the diminishing returns we're getting.

War Hero to Battlemaster = 5% stat boost.
Elite War Hero to War Hero = 3% stat boost.
Whatever's Next to Elite War Hero = 1% stat boost?

At some points, PvP stats will plateau by the looks of things and skill will become the determining factor instead of gear.

Welcome to an MMORPG, and yes, probably Conqueror.
