Agree and I strongly suggest adding Lost Island and Blood Hunt to this 242 bracket too.

They should add the gear rating restriction to every Master Mode group content, except if you are already in a fully formed group.

I don't like Umbara and Copera, so i'll de-gear for those.

That would be a bit overdone as you have to consider you have bolster in Master mode FPS. There have been several videos of people going in naked and still beating for example Blood Hunt Master mode. So for the old level 50 FPS there really shouldn't be a gear requirement.

And if the player-base was representative of the people in that video, there would be no need for a gear rating restriction, now would there?

I would wager that 100% of PUGs that do not have experienced players fail Blood Hunt Master Mode. The gear rating is not an indication of Skill but it suggests that, if you are not a dimwit, you can, with instructions, pull your weight in the specific content.

The gear, also, allows for you to be under-skilled without being too much of a liability to your team. Unless you are spamming basic attacks, you will contribute enough DPS to meet the DPS check

Unfortunately that is typical behavior of most ppl. The game has many new players and since its become so easy those players dont learn how to play and as soon as they face harder content they just leave. Umbara was one of those FPS where I managed to do around 10 runs with a pug, but rest (for the 25 achievement) I had to do with guildies.

Copero is much easier in this way, even the bonus boss.
