Hold on.

If everyone else is so bad then those with high ratings will be gaining more epeen because everyone will know they beat all those other players with equal gear.

So what are you worried about?...

I'd also like to report some news since we don't need any facts to support it.

1.) Ciggaretts are good for you.
2.) The earth is in fact flat like we initially assumed.
3.) Unicorn related deaths rose 213% in the month of February.
4.) Reptile people are in control of the Isrealy government.
5.) Bigfoot is real. He is going to be on the View in April.
6.) I have a 13 inch *****.
7.) Mars not only has life, it has women with three *******.
8.) The tsunami in japan was in fact Godzilla.
9.) Star wars the mmo is doomed.
10.) JFK was assassinated by the Grape Ape.
11.) Battle Los Angeles was a documentary.
12.) WWII was staged to remove a peaceful humanitarian from power in Germany.
13.) God is not only real, he is a woman, and she loves people who read her book and hang out at her house one day a week.
14.) The moon landing was fake. We can't go to the moon. It is already inhabited by giant robots.
15.) Megan Fox is a man.
16.) Dinosaur bones are merely a test of faith, they never lived.
17.) Guild Wars 2 is the best mmo ever.
18.) Titan is the best mmo ever.
19.) Secret World is the best mmo ever.
20.) All pvp guilds are quitting because one cry baby on the forums says so.

I have killed tons of BM players with both my lvl 50's when I only had centurion gear.
And the difference between champion and BM is close to nothing. A champion geared guy who say "omg you are BM, not fair" when the BM player owns him, just needs to learn how to play.

Sadly many clueless people think BM is superior :/

Yes, it is. Sorry to shatter the little world you live in.

There are hundreds of servers, count them up, most are not pvp. Monitoring the populations across them, the pvp servers are generally lower compared to the pve and rp servers. Pvp is a minority, and a dying one at that.

Also, just because the 'majority' of a few thousand forum ranters are dedicated pvp players, does not mean the million+ other players are also dedicated pvp. There is a lot to do in the game outside the mini-game that is warzones. Bioware themselves even said that only nearly half even tried playing warzones. Of that nearly half, I'm pretty sure not all of them are dedicated to pvp players. Regardless, nearly half != majority.

Lastly, its only the hard core pvp players that seem to care enough to make such a ruckus on the forums. Imagine what would happen it all the roleplayers, all the pve players, and casual players came to the forums to give their side? Well, needless to say, the servers would die from the load. It can barely keep up with the ranting nonsense of pvp players.

Of course, none of this will sink in and I do not know why I am bothering. The delusional never listen to logic and reason.

Sad to see after all these years... the same old QoL bugs exist, and nothing has changed for the better.
Way to go AAA developers!

I think "Gear Dependency" is a mmo disease that was spread by mmo's like Warcraft ect. I think it is about time for PvP to become more skill involved and less "Gear Depended".

Don't blame people like OP, blame the system gamer's have grown up in.

I will cancel sub and prolly play my month out like 80% of my pvp guild already have, but pvp just gets boring when there is nothing worth "working" for by playing organized.

High warzone rating = no rewards worth mentioning, A LOT more effort.
Low warzone rating = the same rewards as high rating, a lot LESS effort.

Endgame pvp gear worth working for = None.
Chance of getting bored from lack of worthwile "goals" pvp wise: High.

You failed with Ilum, and now you fail with this. Both had good potential.

Clickers and backpeddalers that run around playing rambo in pvp with no tactics in their head should NOT be awarded 100% as much as those who put more effort in it and play organized.
Just like hardmodes gives better rewards than story mode in pve.
PvE progression = Gearing up to be able to do more challenging encounters.
PvP progression = Improving yourself to face better players.

Gear on PvP shouldn't matter. Yes, everybody loves to get new gear, and there needs to be new sets so PvE gear isn't better than PvP's gear, but the grind should be doable for everybody. That way, people can only whine about lack of class balance, and most issues would be just L2P issues.
