I am finally past the recruit stage on all of my 50s so this would not help me but I fully support it. I am for (almost!)anything that can help make more even matches. So many matches are runovers and boring. SWTOR really has very balanced classes (if you understand their intended roles), fun wz's and is great for having multiple alts.

The only thing stopping the pvp from being extremely fun is the lack of premade matching and the gear imbalance for people that decide they want to pvp sometime after they have hit 50.

It really isn't fun to make a good premade and stomp pugs. I have been premading some lately but it is in a couple guilds of more casual players that are mostly lesser geared and I have some fun doing this but I would really like to get some real premade matching going and then try to make a great pvp group like I have done in my past mmos. Now I just pug 90% of my time.

Gear imbalance? for what all of 48-72 hours?? God do you want them to give you the war hero gear free?. Ridiculous!!

The real solution to YOUR gear problem is to PVP--Get Comms--Buy gear. This grinding for months to get the gear only to have them make it obsolete is getting old. I understand this is how MMO's work but this crying "I Want my gear for free" , "Nerf X class its OP", "Nerf this skill", is not helping anyone or anything. L2P is the way to fix all the problems. Gear is easy play the game, bubbles just another stun so many I dont even notice them and no worse than my sniper!!!! Smash? this one is just a joke I have no problem with these either. If I die I die its not RL I respawn and rejoin the fight. I am not the best PVPer nor claim to be but every time my face is melted I dont come here and cry Nerf/give me gear!!! I would rather see the Devs work on fixing the hackers, bugs and working on new content and not bowing to the vocal minority about their lack of game skill.

Under his system (at least, as I guess it would be implemented) just by virtue of getting a full set of WH or EWH (plus maybe some Legacy perk), you would get your new 50 toon mailed a fresh set of gear, or a piece of gear. The details would have to be worked out. The point is to minimize the gearing hassle as much as possible just by sending your toons the whole set. You earned it on one character, you might as well just get it on another.
Oh sorry, yeah I was talking about the orange legacy gear you can use to transfer mods between toons. I picked up the set with my powertech then sent it over to the sorc with the War hero mods. Its expensive because you have to buy all of them with the armoring bound to specific slots but still worth it IMO.

The gear gap is "basically" gone and really no longer exists so not sure where you are coming from here. I was all in favor of closing the gear gap by base linging all pvp gear. They didn't do that.
What they did do was make WH gear so easy to get that if you save comms up while leveling, you can have enough to be 'nearly' full hero upon turning 50....
There is no reason to complain about gear anymore. As another said....if you didn't plan ahead you have no one to blame but yourself.

Except that I already had the legacy stuff to save myself from doing the pve grind on other toons

Or just use Containment / Sandepeople event sets, which were effectively free from a credits standpoint (unless you bought your tokens with credits, in which case it was merely much less expensive than buying a full set from the vendors).

If you would of capped Rated and Normal WZ comms from 40+, you would have FIVE PIECES OF ARMOR, WEAPON, AND AN IMPLANT OR EARPIECE. If you haven't PvPed before 50, that is your fault. Fresh PvPers at 50 piss people off as much as having a lack of gear, or laziness to augment their gear and ***** about it.
