MK2 recruit is 20% below War Hero, BM is even less.
If that's not enough for you to make up via skill, then you'll just have to lose your warzones all the way to full War Hero. . .and then come on the forums and complain about how premades are ruining solo pugs.
You're not a special snowflake, I've seen the same types come through the forums, they always seem to blame their problems on something else. . .never can they own up to their own failures.
I think you are missing out on some augments? Buy augments and shuff them into your BM gear.
You aren't supposed to trade in your BM gear for your WH gear anyway. Min-maxing starts from BM gear.
