Cartel market needs to sell endgame pve/pvp gear!

I disagree with this suggestion.
You do not need better than Tionese gear at level 50, unless you are raiding, and not just raiding, but "progression" raiding. But if you are doing progression raiding, you don't need to start with anything better than Tionese, either, because that gear level is more than enough to easily down the first 2 story modes, which will have you in half Columi gear in almost no time at all. (Couple hours)

There *is* a gap between fresh 50 greens and Tionese gear that technically would make it hard for a complete fresh 50 team to tackle EV SM. That gap was supposed to be filled with running countless dailies for relics and purple 22s, but Bioware is removing that half-level grind in 1.6 by granting Tionese to all 50s.

If you feel that you need higher than lvl 51 equivalent gear for level 50 content, then I would suggest that no amount of paying money to Bioware should (or will) grant you success. In short, if you're actually doing end-game stuff, you'll have the gear, and easily, without paying. If you're not doing the end game stuff, you don't actually need the gear--save your money.
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

At the cost of many millions, which very few non equipped players have. Sure the gear can be obtained thorugh heavy credit grinding, which is good for an healty game economy. As long as the easiest way to equip is provided by operations then where is the problem?

No - just no. We don't need TOR to become another P2W with wallet size determining everything.

I am amazed by some of the suggestions people have for cartel market, and this one is bad to say the least.

QFT. Nothing should be sold in cartel shop that lets you skip end game content EVER. It's already easy to get into hardmodes with very little effort.

I simply suggest having decent gear available to buy. Tionese gear sucks.
You know what sucks even more? Having people RAID with you in HM/NM who don't know any of the fights - if you're gearing up in Tionese, it's because you're new and need to learn. My new 50 had 3 pieces of Rakata after 1 EV HM run, 2 BH Implants from crafters and the WH weapon from PvP. Gearing up in PvE is EXTREMELY easy!!!! It most certainly does not need to be made ANY easier.

Lets give people another reason not to do Eternity Vault and KP...... First it's columi gear then next people will be demanding the cartel shop sell Campaign Gear in the cash shop then Dread Guard Gear..... Next people will want to buy Warhero PvP gear.... It's a slippery slope.

Not to mention EV and KP teaches basic endgame mechanics, by skipping these your just going to be a liability in Denova and Terror from Beyond.

Thank God those days are over. Imagine ... having to work in a game ... it's almost like ... real life. Wow, thank God that games were invented to get away from Real Life. I don't know what I would do if playing was just the same of going back to work after a long, hard day of work.

Absolutely NO!
There is absolutely no reason to sell endgame gear when the game provides you SO MANY ways of obtaining it, specially entry-level Ops gear. You can get a tionese level set upon reaching 50 really easy and that is more than enough to do any entry level ops. Where is the fun on buying gear? There is not.
P2W is a sure way to kill a game really fast and something the great majority of players frown upon.

Current use of smartphones and computers have already become such a part of who we are to which he sees them as an extension of everyday life that makes us “cyborgs. Further, AI is a serious potential risk to the future of humanity.
