I understand only one new tier of gear...there always be a gear gap and I don't think the forums could handle the flow of QQ that another set would bring.
Well, we have seen the new gear in the weapons. I don't think there is much to cry about there. At least any more than was already there. Then again; I could be underestimating the power of the Q side.

The Q side is strong.

I don't see any reason for new gear to be honest. Min/Maxing WH is almost as big a jump from WH to Min/Maxed as it is from BM to WH. And I also don't mind if PvE is always a gear tier or more ahead of PvP. The grind is greater in PvP and people should be able to enjoy what they've earned for awhile before they have to jump in and start grinding again for another set.

But 1 new WZ map is ridiculous. This game should have launched with 10 maps minimum. It launched with 3. Then to the dev teams surprise PvP was super popular. So their response was to release 1 new map in 7 months. And now they will supposedly release the map that was ready in August to us the last week of 2012 so they can claim they released 2 maps in the same calender year. LOL.

Especially with no World PvP, a WZ player should be able to sit down and play WZ's for 2 solid hours minimum before they see the same map.

All these devs have done in relation to PvP is to make it worse. Awesome!

I believe OPs expectations are a bit high. I couldn't ever imagine more than one new wz in an update, especially since they are now mini-updates. It's not like a new warzone is us fighting in a differently shaped building, or with new textures. Each new warzone has new mechanics and new features all which must be tested and balanced as much as possible.

I don't think you'll survive long in this game doing ONLY PvE or PvP. Being able to bounce back and forth greatly increases longevity.

They have already confirmed hypergates as happening this year and Ilum in january. It is a pve game, but there is pvp content on the horizon. There is even PvP content in 1.5 with section X and the HK quest sending people to the Outlaws Den. Just need to get off your rear and make it happen.

Great game for the most part even though i only pvp these days. The whole pvp department should have been dismissed months ago and still nothing to change my mind about that. Excellent quests, excellent graphics but pvp even though fun has really been the downside to the whole game be it world pvp or wz's. I mean 3 wz's on release have no idea wat they were thinking and only 1 added since wat have they been doing ? (pvp department i mean ? or do they even have 1 still ?)

Well, at least the pvp can't get any worse.

Right?

Right guys, c'mon, back me up here, we hit rock bottom with 1.2, and slowly we've been slowly staying the exact same- so no doubt with all the lay offs and loss of their leaders and going to f2p we're going to see big stuff in the future, right?
