Why the HUGE ilvl jump from Honor to Conq?
With crafted at 450 and honor at 458, any one would expect to see Conquest at 466 and rated at 474. But no, they jumped Conquest up to 483? 25 ilvls? Why? I just spent the last few week slowly farming my 458s got a full set. All along i figured i was getting my butt handed to me because i was only wearing a few pieces of PvP and thought it would get much better with more pieces. Well it did , but not by much. Well i finally got my full set and grabbed a buddy and went to the arena. After getting our butt handed to us, we noticed that most all of the players were in nearly full Epics, not unheard of, i expected that, but going to the vendor to by my first epic Conquest item ( i always go for a trinkets ) i find that the item level isnt what i thought it was gong to be. IT was 483!!!??? It blew my mind. I knew i am not the best PvPer on the planet, but i am far far from the worst. I know in my heart we should have won a few of those matches since we never really had this much trouble at low rank, even at the start of our progress in season.
Now im checking things much, much closer, the gear is way out of wack. Were are unsure if we want to continue on with this season of pvp. To us with all the other problems pvp has seen and rankings have been skewed, this season is going to have a * beside it, and were not sure if we want to be apart of it.
We are hopeful that next season wont see the HUGE skew in gearing lvls and we can actually participate without being cannon fodder for 8 weeks before we get enough gear to compete with players of our skill bracket. Getting Pwned by a unskilled twink was bad enough at 19, 29, 39 ect .. but at 90 when things are supposed to be more equal is a shame.
BioWare did sorta the same thing, and that was all anyone was talking about for weeks. funny how we have not seen a word about this from a game with 9 million more players.
