The experience gained from the PvP is more valuable than the gear itself, plus you will still be able to get better gear and make your character stronger. At least Failware made the WH gear so ugly that most of us have it sitting in our cargo holds waiting to be exchanged!

He's skeered because his gear crutch is being yanked out from under him. One of those keyboard warriors who says: "3-5% isn't much of a difference, I could pwn nubs in recruit gear all day long if I wanted to."

News flash: this is an MMO and things change all the time. 6 months from now we'll have Ultimate Supreme Optimus Prime Elite War Hero gear and players will be raging about that. Valor is given away like candy these days, so the title means nothing more than you skipped a few nights of watching Jersey Shore just to PvP. Who cares?

What he said. I did the same grind on the same server and I feel the same way.

You all totally misss the point, I feel that everyone should have to go threw the same grind to get the gear I am in now. No reason why u shouldnt get your tails handed to u over and over like the rest of us did till we got the gear to be able to hang with the big boys.

But you all come from a generation that thinks everything needs to be handed to u on a silver platter and are afraid to work for it! So we get what we get again nothing. PvP is about puting in the work to get the gear just like PVE u have to work for it but, With 1.6 again the cry babies get there way and the Vets who did al the work the hard way get nothing in return.......

I like many others have done the grind. Bags, crates , merc comms etc. I do not mind the decrease in the grind. Hopefully this will stimulate the pvp community and generate more competitive matches. I don't care if it took me longer to get my wh gear.

I understand this is the view by many. However I do not consider pvp work. It is a game. This is not 1/5 and being stuck in Fallujah. Those guys are vets. If I thought playing this game was work , I would stop "working." I will agree that current generations do have a sense of entitlement compared to prior generations, but seriously this is a game.

My op and sorc are both, more or less, minmaxed and I'm just dandy with shrinking the gear gap. L2P, OP.

This is another thing. Maybe if it only takes a month to min-max, instead of, like 5, we'll see more people willing to tackle ranked.

At least you could queue and play with other imps. There were lots of times when 8 pub pvpers weren't even online and those who were were SOL.
I could care less how easy they make the grind, though I do think it's funny/sad how BW continually caters to the carebears and crybabies.
My preferred method of cc is death
