All MMOs create new gear sets with new levels. Would you prefer to get equal or lesser armor in the new gear grind? I dont understand your complaint. As for being worthless? Not really. Its a pretty damn good set to have for 5 levels and its not really much different then the new basic gear. Which would give you a leg up in the flashpoint gear grind. Try doing the content at 50 with a set of normal level 50 gear and you will see how worthless your gear isnt.

IMO the only mistake they made was removing the old armor from game. Some people do like the tionese/columni/rakatta gear as well as their PVP equivelants. I never understood why these devs actually remove more things then they add. Its been like this since beta. Put the shells on a vendor for crying out loud. Stop wasting development time on stuff that you just remove.
James Ohlen: " For 2012 we really want players to feel like they're getting their money's worth. You're going to see so many changes and additions to the Star Wars Universe. It's going to be impressive. We have our Update 1.2 coming in the next week and then after that it's going to continue to roll out month after month. It's exciting."

Way better than in WoW where you do a little questing and greens will quickly replace your highest tier epics from the previous content.
Dreadguard is certainly not useless, go read, according to them DG is viable for Storymode Scum & Villainy. Our guild just breezed through TFB HM with most of our members in a mix of Campaign, DG, Hazmat and some Blackmarket gear (from the Flashpoints). Only 2 members actually had any Arkanian (1 piece each). Even with over half our gear being "useless" it was no harder than before 2.0.
We're having our first run at S&V tomorrow and I'm pretty sure there will still be plenty on DG and Hazmat gear in use.
Even good old Tionesse has its uses, I'm leveling my Gunslinger on Makeb (she dinged 50 a week before the update, so Tionesse and a couple of Columi is all she's got) and I'm not feeling under geared, at least not yet.

PvEers got off lightly with the gear reboot, now PvPers they got seriously screwed (well not really but they seem to think so )
