Their are just some people who don't like PvP and having a PvP system with good gear in all situations will not magically make people like doing PvP. Some may do PvP for specific gear and once they get it never do it again. Also making the PvP gear good in all situations will result in a lot of exploitation and the harder you make it to get PvP credits the more exploitation their will be.
