Thanks SO MUCH for all your support, and we'll see you in-game!
110% agree with this. I hate having to stop my PvP play in order to go and get the newest equipment (i.e. grinding which is why I don't build new characters at all and only have 2), just so I can compete with everyone else. Cryptic makes the game more about the equipment you have rather than the personal skills, tactics, etc... While you can still compete with older equipment due to your skills and tactics being more advanced than your opponent's, you are at a disadvantage when your opponent reaches/meets your level of tactics and skills, then their newer equipment will be the advantage... uggh.. nothing I hate more in this game than having to go get the newest tweaked power, console, or whatever. The STF sets have literally ****ed me off due to all of the grinding necessary.. I'd rather buy them in the cstore than spend one more moment doing an STF. Cryptic's new motto should be "we code for quantity" due to the thousands of STF grinds I have completed and I am 1 piece away from having both complete sets!... then.. oh yeah.. on to the other toon. My god, Cryptic!!!!!!
Well even when the Special sets did not exist the Rarity/Mark of ones equipment still gave a little buff to PvP playability but not such a difference that a Player with mainly Blues and Greens could not compete against a player using mainly Blues and Purples.
The sets while cool and fun broke that capability to a certain extent and now a player must grind to achieve the new sets or possibly be at a disadvantage in PvP. It does make one play the PVE aspect of the game though..........
