Ok, so I just got the Mk X Honor Guard ground gear, I was wondering...

Is there any reason why, apart from the gun, there are NO visuals whatsoever on the armor?

They never had them.

The STF ground sets only got armor visuals in just before season 7, before they just unlocked costumes and you had to have the entire set as it was accolade unlocked.

Mk X never had visuals.

Mk XI has the basics

Mk XII has the full set and the helmet.

Applies to MACO, KHG & Omega.

If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

yeah...but still, WHY did they not add ANY form of visuals for the Mk X armor, apart from the gun, of course. I mean, even if the visual was something quite simple, like a unique sash or shoulder pads, just SOMETHING to more or less denote the lower grade armor!

No idea, and I wouldn't even count the gun as a visual.

lol, true, but I was just trying to make a point that it is the only part of the set that is visible in the game!

yeah this is a broken thing that's been broken since time immoral.

Its called they don't have anyone willing to go into the code and actually change the visual flags on stuff....because it would require them going through the code looking for the flags.(its a fairly large database)

And as everyone noticed if they fix something like this once....they end up reverting it on a later patch.
And that's because visual FX are not as important as other fixes...so they have the usual left hand doesn't know what he right hand is doing so they make patches that are literally not compatible with each other.

In addition they are trying to fix their underperforming game Neverwinter...which seams to have priority over their other games right now.

Speaking of Neverwinter...
That game is so underperforming, I can't even get on to try to play it!
