Bit surprised noone's made a thread about it yet. What I'm talking about is this:
''The gear in 5.2 will work a bit differently.''
What are you hoping for? Currently, with upgrades and a 7250 cp req for t1 weaps, starting late in the season makes it impossible to catch up unless you're a god-tier player. personally, I'm hoping for a tbc/wotlk mix of gear gating. Honor weapon, low-range rating requirement for offsets and t1 weapon, mid-range for main sets, semi-high for shoulders maybe and a high requirement for elite gear.
With the current deflation (not even the top 100 3v3 teams on my BGroup is 2.2), they need to lower the requirements for elite gear too. 2.2 was fine in s7/8 as many, many teams were 2.2+, but these days only a fraction are achieving that, and it's becoming increasingly harder to compete with the gear gap.
What are your 2 cents?
