    Default R8

    If a player is playing 'by the rules', could one be R8 already? And be able to purchase ALL the R8 gear at once? Had a few on my server hit R8 and with full gear. I asked and they said they grind Whitefall. What are the possiblities of this being true? Seems like a whole lot of Favor and Prestige to have already.. just curious.

    I played about 15 hrs over the 1st weekend of escalation and got very close to R7 from R6. So yes, if someone played pretty much all weekend (on a decent battlegroup with 50% or more wins) they could have reached R8. If they accomplished it, good for them as they are basking at the top while everyone else got the favor nerf. There are 4 R8 in my guild as of last night and I know they are full time warfront players.

    It's one of the reasons why Trion need to roll back people who exploited PvP rifts. It's easy to point at players and say 'Haxxor', when, in fact, they've endured Planet Pug for days on end.

    I slacked hardcore over the 1.4 launch - end of favorfest 2011 thing. In that time I got about 300k prestige and earned all my p7 currency. If someone cleared everything aside, ordered out food and put in some hardcore time that week, I see p8 no problem.

    Theres always the hardcore crowd that put in the heavy hours to get this stuff when it comes out. As I said, even slacking hardcore, I am p7 and 400k prestige to p8. I must have only done 10 - 15 whitefalls total this weekend, not much at all. I'm in like the third tier crowd lol. If i'm not p8 this weekend I'll prolly que all weekend in whitefall and hit it. So I'd expect a lot of p8's right now but def. not the majority. And despite me saying I slack I know a lot of players have far less time than me to play. It's why I think people blow it out of proportion, ranks aren't too far away.

    yea at this point, players are starting to get legit rank8.

    im like 80k / 450k towards rank 8 and i've been playing at a majorly casual level, if someone took full advantage of escalation last week (friday - monday non stop) then they probably could have been just about done with the grind from that alone.

    I gained about 80-90k prestige in 6 hours or so on friday during the first escalation, if that helps with perspective
