Thanks for the info, but this is disappointing. Not even close to good enough IMO.

Unfortunately, gear still matters in PvP. This isn't acceptable.
I get so much components per week that i have been buying 2x 242 pieces for one toon (im playing two toons now cause of this stupid system). Those toons are not even tier 3 so im actually gearing them upfront. I have enough components to buy a 230 upgrade to 236 and 242!! 2 per week.

Not to mention i am a very casual player, i just like to be very efficient when i do play.

1) The increases overall aren't enough. And a wz loss should be at least half of a win.

2) Scrap awarding components based on win/loss altogether, and award the components based on medals earned. At least afk'ers will need to contribute "something" and not just sit in a corner all match.

3) The main problem isn't even the amount of components we get, it's the bloody cost of the pieces. Lower those (along with your new rate), and maybe this RNG system can be salvaged somehow.

True this is also something i would change, increase max value to 10 000 and make them legacy wide.

GSF is a mini-game which supports the main game. It's seen a great resurgence of late as people have seen it as an alternative method to work toward gearing their toons. It really breaks up the grind and offers a refreshing change of pace.

Please don't start ignoring it again! Make the values half of what the WZ's daily/weeklies are - but toss GSF players a bone!
Indeed with GSF win giving 8 components we have seen an increase in GSF pops please also include the daily/weekly components for GSF!!

The daily and weekly could be a bit higher, but that's pretty good.

Horaay, GSF is dead! I got so dam sick of it I get bored by the first match of the day at this point.

Of course you are, I mean, who would doubt something said on the interweb right?

Here are a few realities - Tier 1 costs 1190 components - that's 238 WINS or 595 losses - Tier 2 costs 1940 components, 388 WINS or 970 losses - and Tier 3 is 2915 components, which is only 583 wins or 1458 losses...which sounds very casual friendly and obviously something you can get 2 pieces of per week like you claim right?

Thankfully you're not getting Arenas because those numbers would double...

If you're going to lie, at least do the math before you lie.

2x 242 pieces upgraded via components from 230, like you mentioned, would be 750 components total needed to upgrade (2x150 to T2 then 2x225 to T3). At the current rate, that's 150 warzone wins. Per week. Assuming you won them all. For your "efficient casual play."

Cool story, bro.
