I like the gearing system.

I like not having to grind the same dungeon over and over again for one specific piece of gear. I like that I can do whatever I want and have the chance of any piece of gear with the stats I want to drop.

If I played certain content just for gear then I'd find myself very disappointed very fast. But if I can play that same tier of content for the content, while completely forgetting about gearing, I'm free to do whatever content in that tier I want.

I don't expect to skip everything and go straight into Nightmare content. That would be stupid. Gear progression is a thing. As my gear improves, more content becomes accessible to me, as it should be. The difference here is that this system doesn't make previous content obsolete for gearing.

Just queue for a random fp/wz/gsf/op and go. Same gear for all content, so I'm free to do whatever content I want.

I like it.

I don't know whether he did or didn't touch pts and I was someone who gave extensive feedback in Phase 2 as well as offered some constructive feedback for phase 3.

Frankly I have better things to do with my time than to keep tabs on who is on PTS and who isn't.

Nor am I so ignorant as to declare someone who posts a view contrary to mine as someone who didn't test.

Different people like different things for different reasons. He's free to like the gearing system and you're free to dislike it. Stop making everything so melodramatic.

Technically, since certain set bonus items and tacticals have a higher chance of dropping from certain types of content; and because some things are ONLY available from the Dxun operation and new Corellia flashpoint, you may very well have to run the same type of content over and over, and possibly even the same dungeon.

EDIT: technically even those ONLY things can be in your personal loot or on the Kai Zykken vendor.

I know logic and reason are not skills that everybody wields equally but to equate not having played on the PTS to trolling is certainly does not speak well for you.

A simple check of the OPs posting history show about a dozen or more posts on the PTS forums.
It may be that the OP truly likes the gearing system. Who are you decide they are a Troll. Could be the only Troll here is you.

I may not be positive, but based on what you wrote, I do believe that you are trolling.
