242's DO drop from command crates, so do 248's. The blues are simply more common.

You only have a set amount of rolls for 242's on any given character, with the highest drop rates coming at the end of the tier. 244's aren't as good as 242's, because they cannot be upgraded to 248 and do not have optimized stats for mods and left-side gear. The only notable upsides are a bit of extra damage from hilts/barrels and lower repair costs.

Least you can pull the blue mods out and use it on an alt cheaply. Nothing wrong with having an alt with the 230 armoring set bonus and 244 blue mods and enhancements.

This is it, in a nutshell. They went from AAA Western MMO to grindy Asian MMO in a single move.

I hated what they did to Companions with 4.0 but this is even worse.

LoL. Hyperbole much? I mean, when was this ever an AAA MMO?
Faction imbalance is the scientific term for saying player skills mature at a later age than that of the intended audience of a certain faction.

I disagree. Now this system could have better drop rates but its a lot better than before 5.0. The biggest improvement is being able to play the game anyway you want and get a chance for BIS gear.
Pre 5.0 there was only 2 ways to BIS gear you had to do either of the following.
Priority Mission- 1 Random HM Op would drop BIS Gear. So each char you would be able to roll on 5 pieces of gear between 8 people.(Sounds like a very long grind) To make it worse is most people can only do EV/KP HM.
Nightmare OPS- Which only Hard Core Raiders would be able to do. Which was the biggest cry out on these forums how they get BIS Gear and others can't because they dont do Ops.

So even if you were lucky and was guaranteed to get a loot pieces every priority mission it would take you 14 weeks to get geared in BIS. Thats even saying that you are able to complete the other HM OPS and just not wait for what most people did and that was HM KP/EV.

Now for the people who would just be happy with the gear that is a step down from BIS and would rather have ultimate coms back. I am not sure if the grind of ultimate coms would be a lot easier then this grind for the second best gear. I do think that this grind is a lot more fun as I can do multiple things other than just operations. The amount of ultimate coms that came from non Ops was low and you be lucky if you could rack up enough to buy one piece per week.

The only system is think is really broken is the PVP system. I do both pvp and pve so I am extremely happy that they made it one set of gear so I didnt have to farm two sets. But the system for just pvpers is extremely stupid. You are either forced to do HM Ops or do a extremely painful grind of upgrading every tier. I think tier four is reasonable priced but tier 2 and 3 should be a lot cheaper especially tier two.

Short summary-You will enjoy the system if you just log in and play the way you want to and not focus so much on CXP to get BIS. Having a chance at BIS is better than pre 5.0 because most people didnt have BIS. Pvp upgrades need to be reduce big time on the price. Tier 4 is ok but Tier 2 and 3 should be a lot cheaper.

Opened 12 more crates today and got 12 more slap-in-your-face rewards for my hard work. I guess the jokes on me... thanks BioWare. May your year be as "rewarding" as the crates you award me.
