Musco - when are you guys going to discuss gear.

Please donít ignore this topic. There have now been 6-7 threads at last count through out the forums.

Experienced Players have given you tonnes of feed back and we would appreciate you discussing it with us (2 way conversation) before charging ahead with what youíve announced and currently have on the pts.

There is a high level of anxiety around this topic and a lot of people are considering unsubscribing or reducing their play time, especially pvpers.

We are concerned about the health of the game and the retention of current players. We hope you have already been listening to all the feed back and have changes planned. If not, what is the point of us giving you feed back.

I implore you, please do not go ahead with the current system as it is until you listen to our feed back and discuss with us so we can get a system that works for you and the players will enjoy.

Because honestly you guys are going crazy over nothing for one I have full 248 bis gear on live right now and when I put together a full set of 258 bis on pts it barely changed anything not enough to be overpowering at all and two the system to get a full set of 258 has a clear cut path that doesn't revolve om any RNG like the GC system so you wonder why the devs aren't really responding is because you are acting like chicken little acting like the sky is falling when it isn't the current system for 258 gear is pretty much like any other MMO endgame gearing system where over a short period of time you can fully gear your character.

Can you please stay on topic. Iím asking for the Devs in the feed back section to discuss this. There is no reason to turn yet another thread into an argument.

I am staying on topic as I am explaining why they aren't going to bother and why you are making a big deal out of nothing.

I think you should stop and just let them decide. I wonít be responding to you again.

i'd say the same thing to you about your complaints about the system but you don't seem to be listening and carefully taking in what i am telling you just look and read my response and come at it from a non partisan point of view and you might realize that what I am saying makes sense.

I too would like the Devs to discuss this topic with the players. There are currently 6 threads based around this topic and all are active.

In fairness though... what would them talking about it actually achieve? They have already communicated about this gear in a live stream... quite a lot actually.. for them. Some players simply don't like what they hear and want/hope for a different response. I certainly do not see studio comments changing any player narratives on this topic.

They can explain until they are blue in the face why they are doing what they are doing... but if it follows every other such discussion between players and studio over the years.. anything they say will just be weaponized against them to propagate even more complaint threads and stir up even more passion and emotion.

They are also largely redundant with one another too, which is normal around here.

In fact.. players are spending time now cross coupling posts between the threads because people like you are asking players (in every one of the threads) to provide specifics on efficient use of the planned pathways to gear.

I know you are playing a bit of catch up on this particular topic... but we really have, as a forum, .. largely discussed all this pretty thoroughly already and are now on retreads. I think Totem wants a studio comment here to provide more fodder for fueling complaining... just like when I asked Eric for what is planned with bolster and once Eric answered Totem immediately weaponized it and created yet another thread.
