Gear is for wussies

It takes a bit over a week to get a set of gear viable for rated warzones. At the higher level of rated play, everyone is equally geared with a few exceptions due to personal preferrence, and skill differences become very apperant.

Basically what i'm getting at is this: If you take away the gear, the baddies will still get stomped and the majority of players will feel as if there is not enough incentive to win in PvP, or even compete! (Trust me, I saw it happen in GW2)

Another main issue is this: Without some sort of gear grind, everyone would simply reroll whatever they feel is OP. It promotes FOTM rerollers waaay to much. (Trust me, I saw it happen in GW2)

The best thing is to concentrate on one character > get good (or get help getting good)> get gear > learn other class abilities > perfect your gameplay > be a good and not a bad

It's okay guys. I figured out the OP is a troll. Everything is under control.

Red Sonja/Conan style; love it!

Well, except the weapon(s) and secondary would need standard stats. No weapon stats is pure melee. Otherwise the carnage would be good bloody fun* and glorious.

He appears to have a deeper understanding as to how marketers have you chasing two carrots than you do. Grind for two kinds of gear with everry new toon ad naseum.

No thanks I'd rather spend my time pvping where gear doesn't matter.I'd rather pve in gear-null instances that require skill and not gear values and repair cost.
But if it only takes a short while and no money to get BiS, then that's great. Feels like it takes some time just to level the same old **** to get the same old ****.
I am entitled to no lore, no convos, idependence from guild, a smart group finder that groups me by preference doesnt require me to have affiliations with people other than in runs or pvp, and i dont want to smoke their cartel opium. Shocking!
I don't care about traditional mmo social norms. I'm here to get my skills razor sharp.
I just want the option for this. I dont want to take anything from anyone.
I bet a a lot of folks would like that.

Also an objective based pug wz with none of the boring stats. Just a winner and a loser. People interested in farming numbers can queue for the other wz.
I know intelligent getting can be fun, and min/maxing allows for variation in build viability for certain tactical goals/play-styles, but it also just seems sort of like people hate rated because of the vast differences in gear.
Grind it like the rest of us, I guess is what you'll all say.
There should be almost no gear gap, granted recruit sucks but it doesn't take many matches to get into WH and itemize

Free to players leveling up fresh 50's exacerbate this problem, the expansion should improve your experience dramatically. And mine lol

Wait, why do so many people ***** about premades and gear in rated if gear isnt an unnecessarily confounding variable in match outcomes?
It seems like this game controls for skill with by using gear.

Who *****es about gear for rated?

I p leveled my scoundrel ahead of schedule and having been ******** on PUGs all day on teh leader boards with some terrible gear.

If you put the players who whoop your *** in recruit they are still going to whoop your ***. Just not as swiftly
