1. I like that the best pvp gear has to be acquired by playing the game's content instead of endlessly grinding pvp matches. I feel like that is a good thing, ANYONE can have the best pvp gear even if they haven't done a single match before..
^^^^^^^^^^^ <= This and I like Pugs to. It makes things different as you have no idea who you'll be teamed with. Making guaranteed pug vs pug matches would be awesome. When I pug, I don't want to go against a premade (sorry Sad Panda's I don't want to be cannon fodder for you guys :p).
