I never want to leave this bracket, every game can go either way, gear counts for nothing because everybody has their stats boosted to a level 49, it all comes down to teamwork and skill, this is the most fun I've had in pvp probably since tarren mill/southshore. The best part is that I run at a profit, I'm used to the WoW system of slowly having your money slip away from repairs.

My only concern is that I know if I keep playing as much as I do I'll hit 50 on my characters one day from the small xp gains. Because there are no repair bills I dump the credits into professions and companion gifts, not sure what I'll do with the money when those are maxed.

p.s.
no I'm not a 49 assassin, I run a 20s operative and 30s commando
p.p.s.
yes I've been playing since beta and had neglected 10-49 pvp all these months, big mistake

Sounds like you're scared to actually fight people on equal footing at 50.

Every game can go either way in 50 as well.
Gear counts in 10-49 as much as it does in 50. In 10-49 people are even more likely to have bad gear because they are leveling and may not care about gear since it's temporary. In 50 you should have at least recruit and BM is very fast to get. War hero vs BM is not that big a gap.
10-49 is heavily influenced by your AC points.

10-49 is more laid back though, probably because commendations are not so crucial in this bracket, most just want xp.

Equal footing at 50? Thats laughable. Pre-50 is much more "equal" without expertise.
Look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.

Agreed, they should let us stop getting XP whenever we like.

This is pretty funny, because at levels <49 you ARE fighting people at equal footing. Hit 50 and suddenly you're roflstomped (even with recruit gear) by those who got to 50 before you and got the gear.

The GEAR defeats new 50's, not the "skill." It's so bad I hear new 50's complain every day. ZERO fun to have PvP armored foes doing so much damage they can basically camp the spawn point and prevent progression or the ability to earn even 1 medal - at which point the player gets ZERO.

There should be a minimum of 1 medal just for playing the WZ to the end so you can make SOME progress towards getting the upper end gear which totally controls who wins and who doesn't...

Take armortech or synthweaving and keep yourself in blues.
Spend comms on weapons/implants.
Enjoy many levels of care-free PvP.

PS. Don't bother picking up un-needed recipes for armortech/synthweaving since you're going to be dropping it at 50 for Biochem anyway.

And pre 50 is never equal unless your all the same level and in the same gear.

Here's an idea...get some expertise and stop playing in the kiddie pool.

Level 40+ in purple gear is equal footing? Laff.

Heck, level 49 with purple mods and the expertise mods from pvp weapons is basically godmode.
