You said you wanted to close the gear gap, but not elliminate it.

At the moment there is no difference between PvP and PvE gear. Heck, there's no difference even between PvP and 'empty gear" ...
Forgot to mention that i can also provide pics if needed, with people in PvE gear having the same stats/expertise with people in Partisan.

If you want the basic info here is a quick synopsis, read on for the full debrief:

TLDR: Going into a Warzone completely naked will now be worse than wearing gear. War Hero and Elite War Hero gear is viable again.




Our current plan is that you will see all of these changes after our scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, April 16th. Note that these changes are NOT to address the time to kill issues. We are still actively investigating that and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.

I think this sounds fair .. but you could have avoided all of this as you knew you were pushing buggy code or code that would make the majority of your pvp player base upset .. it just doesnt make sense that you would want to alienate paying customers ..

"Still waiting on that heifer Julio!" comes to mind when I think about this issue (if they handle it the same way they did in the past)....


Just wondering if I should still hold out hope that they will do the right thing this time...

Thanks for the response, Eric. It's a lot better than the issue never being addressed at all.

I just hope the changes made actually -fix- the problem instead of making it worse. :\

You and I can finally agree on something. Let's shake on it.

I'd still very much like to know what happens to cartel market expertise crystals.
