So with the bag change it s not hard at all to gear up, ppl can stop crying
yeah, I did that pre patch...you know what I got? not a single item at all...and only 3 coms per bag netting me 0 gear....so yeah, I think we had a reason to whine before u nub.

Oh come on. I went from 75k warzone damage to 300k warzone damage consistently with a set of mixed champ and centurion gear. Clearly 8% expertise PVP damage redux and damage boost and another 40% hp and damage from the stat gains is trivial .

SWTOR PVP is first and foremost a gear check.

To the OP, the system as is now is fine/better. Mix columi, PVE daily and PVP gear with the goal of getting first to max purple gear and then swapping out centurion with columi/champion gear (and tionese gear for companions, tee hee). You should at the very least close the expertise gap in the first week and the majority of the stat gap within 1-2 weeks compared to before where you might get 1-2 pieces of centurion gear per week if your drop luck was bad.

So you got some cent and champ? That won't do anything against the guys at the top of the gear chain anyways. Once you hit bm it comes alot slower, luckily you can get to bm in a couple days of kill trading now, but you will still get rolled by bm's. And the crying will continue...and the casuals will win and get free bm gear easymode. And in a year from now, you can buy a full set in the swtor ingame store for 10 bucks. Yay!

It is a good change. Really. Nice done BW. I remember when I hit 50, it was much harder to get anything, and much more frustrating. Now it is less luck depending process, than before. When win bug is fixed finally, getting decent gear will be a question of two weeks even for casual players, which is fine. PVP shall be skill based, not gear based, as much as it only possible in MMO. Leveling field is a good thing.

It may be a gear check, but expertise is no so much the issue, guys in columni/rakata can easily get 300k aswell. Stat check maybe, man up and get the gear like the rest of the gaming world imho though (directed to general whiney ***'s). Easymode just gets dull.

I kill full BMs all the time in mixed champ/centurion.

Difference between BM chest piece for me and champion chest piece is :

7 cunning, 6 endurance, 4 expertise, -44 power, +48 crit chance, 3 accuracy.

Difference between that BM chest piece and level 50 mod'd chest piece is:

19c, 50 expertise (about 1.3% dam/DR), -42 power, +48 crit, +13 accuracy.

You're talking a 5% difference compared to a 30%+ difference.
