I'm just glad that Team Apocalypse opted out of this to take part in the Nar Shaddaa speeder races instead. We all had a great time at Jeos' event. And there wasn't any controversy or cheating going on there.

Kloma, you should ignore Alan, "he's" actually a member of GG.

I've been attempting to figure out the identity of AlanShore for a long time. My prime suspect is still Alexis.

Good for you GG for hosting an event where the out come was probably decided before it started. Shhhh. A new way to farm credits from the sorry sheeple who actually paid to partake in this event, maybe? But hey I am with you GG. It's their own fault for giving up 150k creds at a chance to beat GG in pvp. So my hats off to your guild and your skilled players for putting on this spectacle for the sycophanatics who kiss your behind while you beat their behind into submission for us to witness. Winning!

Wait how about this, GG challanges everyone on this server to a pvp re-match where every competitor is in recruit pvp gear. Anyone can buy it, no one will have an advantage, and the test who is the best will based on skill, not gear. And btw, no stims or modified customizations allowed, just straight up recruit pvp gear.

Who wants to see this happen?

Ha! I kid I kid. Congratz GG for the awesome pvp tournament.

I proposed this, and it has been met with extreme opposition. The Leet of our server arnt interested. Pax has done a series of these internally and with great success. Most people REALLY like it. Howwever, the min/maxers and people who are way better at math than I am will tel you that some classes have a slight advatage. It would seem that all recruit gear is not created equal.

Although I can tell you from experience, The diff is negligable. For all intents and purpose Recruit gear levles the playing field and enables the involvement of players that would otherwise never be able to pariticipate in events such as these.

I propose starting 2 divsions of PVP rankings on our server.

A Pro no limits Tournament like this one and its predecessor.

A Handicap Tournament in full Recuit gear.

I am certain that some will refuse to particpate in such an event on the grounds it is a waste of time. That is entirley your perogative. However, I do believe for the health of PVP on our server, a tournament such as this could be beneficial.

People don't wanna do it in recruit because some classes are itemized better than others, although we can agree all of them are poorly itemized. Also min maxing normal wh stuff to best suite your class/spec is also a sort of skill and part of what drives an mmo (custom stats). If people want skill no gear based pvp there are plenty of options out there Global Agenda being one of my favorites, SWTOR is not that and doesn't try to be.

Yup. And the other thing is set bonuses. Some classes/specs need their set bonus to catch up at the 50 tier, and others don't. Limiting to recruit gear only solves some problems. For the more laid back PvPers, it's great. For the little more intense, not so much. :s

I would happily participate in a Recruit tournament, if someone will pay the 320k for those of us who did not have Recruit gear on that character in the first place

In my opinion, the issue is not so big any more considering how cheap War Hero gear is since the 1.6 patch.

However playing without set bonuses is almost crippling to some classes, while others have nearly no need of them. Having 12 and 21 second cooldowns on Healing Scan and Emergency Scan makes heat management even more difficult for the only tiered-resource class/spec in the game that has no method of passively recovering their resource.

Thats exactly what Im talking about>

Yes Min/max is a skill in and of itself.

Yes some classes get the crap end with no set bonus and are horribly optimized.

However,

I see this type of tournament as an opporutnity to get the noobs to PVP interested in something other than just ques. Most of the people in Pax are PVErs and distest PVP. With this format I have been able to encourage PVP participation and tear down some of the negative stigma attached to it.

So no, this is not for the leet. Most of you would do pretty well regardless of gear anyway, but like dashto said.
