No and no.

This is not WoW, if you want a gear score go play WoW.

Besides its completely useless, you que up and PvE with whoever is there.

And how do you score set pieces? They may not be of the same tier, and just because your purple ship shield has 1000 more points to it does not mean its better, I would give up a 1000 points on a shield for a set bonus any day.

Gear scores would be impossible and completely useless, they are an archaic thing of the past.

The problem is not gear. It's knowhow. I could run an elite STF in mk X whites across the board on say.... a Mirror Escort... and I'd do just fine. But that's because I know how to play really well and how not to screw things up. Has zero to do with gear and most to do with knowhow and you can't rate knowhow with an addon sadly.

Gearscore is one of the worst features ever implemented in an mmo I think.
Yes, it can help you save a couple of minutes/day grinding endgame stuff.

It will also make it alot harder for you to make alts and get them geared towards endgame.

Also it's not a newbfriendly system, (new players don't bother come here..).

If I wanted gearscore I'd still be playing that other game (and probably be some kind of bear now).

No...absolutely not. I have all MkXii purples and I loathe this elitist nonsense. It's ythe height of arrogance to limit someone else's enjoyment of the game because they're pixels aren't purple enough for you. If that's what you want go back to WOW.
I have to agree with this

heh, I bet if you stomp the OP in your white mkX gear he'll be telling everyone you cheat.

I have several toons, like many players. Every time they hit level 50 they usually only have white and green, maybe a few blues. I easily run them through STFs in that gear because STFs are ridiculously easy. I can't remember the last time I did an STF in a team that knew what they had to do, and failed the optional let alone the mission. I don't even care about the optional anyway, its only 15 marks. The people who care are the elitists who, judging by this thread, its pretty obvious they exist. I have no problem in needing an accolade to play elites but whoever suggested gear score should be beamed into an exploding tactical cube with no shields.

How I would gate the ground one is simple

No remodulator No queue

Hey guys, hope I'm not late to the OP bashing.

ABSOLUTELY NO to gear score barrier. You can easily do Elite STFs with Mk X whites.

Maybe if you see someone sucking you should teach them instead of whining and complaining. Leaders try to bring out the best in people, idiots sit back and moan. Learn to be a leader.

No. Absolutely NOT.


Gear score just makes for more issues.
