I'm sure most of you check mmo-champion, but for those who don't here are some new tweets regarding new mmr system and mentions gear will work differently in 5.2.  Hopefully we get something good for the gear change.  Thoughts on what it could be?

Knowing Blizzard it'll be something like this:

mt dew part was lulz.  best slogan ever..



One thing I think next season is we should at least have an honor weapon, t1 s12 but it would be better than nothing.  I think all the good improvements they could make would be making gear system like it used to be.

i liked bc the best, but i also didnt mind how it was like, each piece required some rating in wrath...1650 for bracers and cape and neck etc.... 1750 for  boots/belt/etc

i thought that was pretty cool and kept the lower brackets really busy cause casuals/etc had something to aim for

I don't think having a rating requirement on weapons in the current state is that productive. Back in BC I think it was more than fine because there were a lot of alternate weapons out there you could get. Now with the absurd amount of PvP power that's on the weapons you can't even hope to compete without one.

And even once you get t1, anything 1800+ is still going to be flooded with boosted players with t2. And the weapons are so ridiculously good, you're going to get smashed unless you're pretty dramatically better than them.

But I think the elite armor should keep it's rating for sure, maybe even up the req on the shoulders or something to try and make that more distinctive than it currently is. Maybe the elite gear could have a special effect on it like the challenge mode gear?

I'm personnaly all for a more distinctive elite gear in skin/effect and saying good bye to the t2 wep bonus stat.
And please a revamp system for the points !

They need to do a few things, some of which I think would significantly help

1. Honor weapon. Doesn't need to be badass, just throw some stupid amount of PvP power on it and the t1 gap problem is solved

2. Remove this 'Req X amount of conquest' garbage. It slows everything down way too much. If dragonslayers think they have to PvP for a weapon, nerf the shit into the ground while further increasing PvP power or something.

3. Make all off-pieces require rating and are once again purchasable with honor, like TBC/WRATH. I'm talking like 1550 for rings/neck 1600 for bracer/cape and 1650 for belt/boots. Nothing huge, but once the rating is achieved you can just buddy farm it real quick.

4. Gear prices lowered back to cata prices, 1650 for gloves, not 1750.

Now you'll be able to be geared in around two months or so. Blizzard said specifically that they want more things to spend conquest points on. Lets make elite gear cost some points, add in a bunch of other cosmetic shit. Bring back tabards.

I really like that challenge mode gear style cosmetic effect idea. Would be awesome to have another set added in, even if it's to replace elite gear.

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

I think the rating numbers you provided might be a bit high. Though it might be easy for a member on this site to get those ratings, it would cause a huge gear disparity for those below those ratings. 1200-1400 might be better. Good post though!

I don't know i think it worked out pretty fine in wrath with those numbers, it even makes the lower brackets a lot easier for people because unless they are people on a new team with a low mmr you don't really fight as many fully geared people, so you fight more people on your gear level.  That's one of the many reasons alts were so much easier in wrath, you could zone into 2s or so and your opponents at low levels would be at low gear levels too not full malevolent tier 1 weapon stuck in in 1400s immedietly blowing up any alt in blues you have.
