The amount of gear you receive is reflected by the amount of time you put into the game. That is any and all MMOs.sogeou wrote: ↑Tue Oct 20, 2020 3:51 pmBeing in a mix of conq / ani because you can't get full vanq is a huge difference. Or if you want vanq so your gear is not poop when you do 6v6 SC to get more gear. People who are doing 6v6 sc's in those mixed low tier gear die in seconds.CeeJay89 wrote: ↑Tue Oct 20, 2020 1:48 pmYour whole statement, among others, is implying that everybody who plays the game will be unable to compete or do anything with the game and get stomped for several months before even getting Vanquisher. The point is, you're objectively wrong.
If you're only logging on and trying to flip a single zone, then maybe you're doing it wrong. Get contribution in every zone available. Participate in every siege, especially defenses. Log on after city for the quick zones. Learn to drop oil.
It's not that hard to gear up. Stop acting like it is because you want everything with little investment.
If you play in EU time zone, if you go run supplies touch all zones play for about 2-3 hours and no zone flips most times your contribution will not be enough as people are getting more than you since you had to log off. Most average people are the ones who lag behind. I do not find myself listed as average player with the amount I play. It is for sure a chore for those average players to get in correct gear based on their RR. I see lots of 60-70's in a mix of lower tier gear due to the RNG nature. Currently we are seeing a lot of fresh tons as well since double xp/rp.
You should stop acting like your above average play style is the normal. It has nothing to do with want stuff for free as people I have been seeing are RR 60+. Just trying to make the gear gap less from newer toons. But, maybe you enjoy getting easy kills.
RNG isn't nearly as relevant as it used to be. You've been around long enough, and perhaps you've forgotten the days when prices were higher, less from bags, when Genesis only came from blue bags, subjugator from purple, realm wide bag rolls, etc.
Gearing is as easy as it has ever been. To expect it any faster would be like expecting to get it the moment you reach the required RR.
Also, everyone is an 'easy kill' until they're in Sovereign. If you don't want to be easy kill, then group up.
