If they do that, why do we even buy OCP and over upgrade gears? Surely its not for PvM and WOE only.
To be honest PvP is less gear intensive than WoE since no added redux and everyone one shots one another in many ways already even pre ocp pre bio5 most specially when they released the 175 slaughterfest mode when some skills went through the roof (NL AS, DC RC, TC, DB etc etc)
Not to mention no actual shared goal which will count everyone's gears and skills to the last refinement
If there is anything crucial in pvp it is net connection lol, I vote for faster connection here in the other side of pacific
