Because I have done the grind quite a few times already?

Let me preface by saying I hate the idea that gear level matters at all for PvP. If I had my way, gear would work this way.

When 2.7 comes out, you don't have to grind out 7000 ranked comms for weapons. Just get the Obroan ones for regular comms. It's way faster and cheaper, and in the end, pretty much just as effective. I only rock Conqueror now, and if and when I lose to someone, I always feel like it's because of skill (or just the natural flow of the game), not because of gear discrepancy. Unless healers are involved. Then I come to the forums and cry like a B.

I don't even have full obroan on my main, but I don't care if they release another teir. Ranked gear is barely 2% better than what you buy with regular comms and what you buy with regular comms isn't even a upgrade over bolster.

Sanity is for the weak minded.

Example, I am using white hawk eye crystal. It costs 5-7 million credits. For me to buy a white white hero crystal I will need to dish 3-5 million credits. This is a huge credit investment. Though I can afford it will consume about 50% of credits on all my toons, and that's just one toon.
You knew that one day they'd close the loop holes. You still chose to spend money AND you also got the advantage for months. So your investment has been actually bringing in fruit for all this current expansion.

As usual, they resolve to laziness by either making options unviable or deleting content.
You can't expect a company whose PvP FAQ consists of a "NO CAN DO" and that finds everything "too much technically challenging" to work well and do what they could.
They pick what's the lowest hanging fruit and are happy with that.

Anyway I and many others found it was a slap in face grinding weapons and then see guys out-doing them by spending few hours farming planets PvE.

Everyone should just go into pvp naked, then theres no need to grind gear.
