But surely if crates are going to drop golds then they should come as unassembled. Nothing is more annoying then getting repeat pieces which you don't need, especially LHS items which you can't even rip out mods and enhancements and move them to alts. Either have 248's drop or don't I really don't care but if you do please make the pieces which drop unassembled.

First, we have made no adjustments to the drop rate of items from Command Crates since we introduced Tier 4 and rebalanced the drops from Tier 1-3. If you see that there seems to be a change in what you are experiencing at some point, throw that in bug reports and we can look into it.

Second, it is definitely our intent that 248 Legendary items are pretty uncommon from Command Crates but keep in mind that you can consistently get them from other sources. You can upgrade into one from using Unassembled Components or get them as drops from Master Mode final bosses and Veteran Gods From the Machine. This happened as part of our shift to make Galactic Command more supplementary to your gearing.

However, as with all things, please keep feedback coming! We are always open to making further changes where and if they are needed.

Those missions could serve as another place to earn valor, UC and promote OWPVP in game again.
+1, would endorse on the Suggestions board. My guild is about to gauge interest in OWPvP, and this would ice the cake a bit : )

I thought it was perfectly clear from Day 1 that Legendary Rank would have a very low drop rate.
Lol, I opened 25 cxp pack last night and got no 246 or 248 gear. I did get four 244 head pieces, but that didn't exactly make things any better.

The drop rates are abysmal, and while you may prefer to come to BioWares aid and school me on what's up, I don't care if you think I am out of line.

If they made legendary gear super easy to get via PVP/GSF would you or others not then be complaining about how under valued the best gear from operations has become?
Did NiM bosses not each drop a UA back in the day? At least in 3.x..?

The point isn't whether you need it or not, but the fact that after doing all the PVE content the game has to offer, multiple times, what other goal might there be?
This harkens back to the bolster "discussion" topic ( as in we discuss and BWA ignores us) imo and my view that PVP shouldn't have stat based gear.
I won't go into it here but have a read and contribute your views if you have not done so already.

If you've done ALL the PVE content the game has to offer and can't/won't do NiM why do you then need legendary gear (again, assuming a smarter PVP system than what we have - these issues are related imo)?
You would just re-run content again just to get gear you don't need and won't really use?

I personally believe if you reach a point where the content itself isn't enjoyable and you have to rely on artificial goals like "gear" as a reason for playing it's time to take a break and play something else.

Eric, y'all forgot about the pvp thread. Just wanted to get it back on your rotation since Icy's sub runs out mid august. Would like something before that preferably.

I've never complained about gear being easy to get. I think it makes the game better the more toons a player has geared. PvE is back to where it was (mostly), but PvP gearing sucks.

I opened today between 55-60 tier 4 boxes and got 5 tier4 pieces, was i lucky or is it this the normal chance?

Because if this is the normal rate.. i dont think pieces are that "rare".

Which is why PVP gearing needs to be scrapped.
