It would be better to give something on the lines of a EDC. say you get 1 if you lose the match and 2-3 if you win the match. Splitting gear into PvP and PvE is not something I was never big on.
What should be done is have zone with pvp and whatever said side owns the zone then they they can buy stuff cheaper. Say a MACO MK XII shield for 20 ECD and not 40. Give them something REALLY worth fighting over and not just gear sets alone.
Speaking of... I could see them doing something like that with the territory control system (if it ever comes to be). Maybe even new sets that are awarded for capturing key systems.
