One thing i noticed also in myselve is that in the old system i would hoard favor, with the mentality that i would have more to spend when getting to higer rank.

But with the new system it is more intresting to get al PVP gear of your rank as soon as posible.
And i have noticed that valor makes a huge difrence event if it is not a lot of it.

I also see more other players actualy wearing PVP gear in warfronts.
So does that people wearing more pvp gear on low ranks have effect on the PVP experiance for others and if so is it a positive experiance
