5.2 Flawed logic and assumption [T2 Gear]

If you're good enough to compete, I'm assuming you're capable of getting T2. So I believe it's fair, I believe gear should be earned via SKILL AND TIME, not just time.


Not really. This season if you are good enough to try for a decent title you hit a wall where players had T2 and you didn't and you got rofl stomped no matter how well you played. All this change does is make the playing field even so skill can truly shine through.


Explain to me what arena title you can get without having T2. Everyone starts out without T2.

Just realized something. The people who are QQing about their T2 going away probably have self confidence issues and need the T2 wep to rofl stomp people who don't have it to assuage their self confidence.


I'm afraid you don't understand PVP


How don't I? I play for the competition for the spirit of it. All the QQers are only playing for T2. How does that not validate my point?

I don't need some carrot at the end of the stick to play. I play to get better, to become/be the best. Not some virtual thing thats useless once the next season starts and you get more gear.

Playing for the carrot at the end of a stick is for pvers. So kindly if you only play for T2 gfto of pvp and go raid.

if they add special vanity items like mounts and cosmetic sets for people that have high rating it'll be perfect. I don't understand the logic behind people caring so much about a t2 weapon. It proves nothing anymore. I'm not a 2200 player and I have seen backpedaling mages in with t2 weapon and they play horribly. If gear is equal the better player will win all the time.

Viewing your profile I don't think you'll be achieving T2, and it had nothing to do with you not having the "gear". I can understand why you would want the game more dumbed down.

this makes no sense. how does having access to a weapon with slightly better stats dumb the game down? Skill should seperate players not gear.

People apparently NEED some kind of advantage in order to play this game. People who care about competition and skill want a level playing field to see who is more skilled, who plays better with teammates, etc.

Unfortunately you need certain amount of skill to get T2. I'm sure he doesn't believe he deserves T2 as he stated, but yet he'll be getting it.

Lol this guy armory trolls, but speaks on behalf of "casuals" of whom most likely won't be getting T2.

There is nothing being dumbed down to achieve high ratings and you can't deny that people paid for ratings or that wintrading occurs.

I've noticed all of the people in favor for the free T2 are the ones without T2.
100% agree
