    I'm speechless. I've been keeping up with daily randoms since day 1 of 2.0. That's 50+ dailies that I've done without getting marks, so assuming the 50-59 rewards are the same as rank 60, that's over 150 marks that I've missed out on, by being a frequent PvPer.

    Please tell me there's going to be some compensation for those of us who missed out on those marks.

    why did you do dailys then if you weren't getting any rewards? if you were getting rewarded for doing them then you obviously got some advantage over newer players who, if they started pvping now, will never catch up to you.

    PS. you don't "miss out" on rewards retroactively...

    It's nice for those under rank 60, though.

    Just a reminder for those that are 7 days away from hitting rank 60 and rank 70. Save up your

    daily random warfront quests a week out so when you hit 60/70 you will get the most bang for

    your buck with the rewards.

    PA capped, so yeah, those conquest sky projectors are giving me a huge advantage over the fresh rank 50's.

    Technically correct, but it should be pretty obvious that the "missing out" part is versus a hypothetical scenario where these rewards were in place when SL was released.

    Well this sucks for my main , but at least my alts can gear up faster.

    Why they took so long to implement it is beyond words.

    Now all I need is CQ power/marks from my randoms and ill be a happy camper.

    I'm rank 59 and I have 0 Freelancer Marks. Rank 60+ players have Freelancer's Marks already.

    Exactly how did you get boned? Its a problem that you have a ton of Freelancer Marks before low ranks?

    In the butt, that's how!!!

    Yes, I know, technically I didn't lose anything. But with this change, a fresh rank 50 player will be able to purchase several pieces of the next tier of gear when they hit rank 60, whereas I was not able to purchase any when I hit rank 60.

    Life isn't fair, yadda yadda, still feels like I've been punished for taking part in PvP dailies before this patch.

    Maybe they can give us a special costume Dunce hat for being greedy for gear and ranking up quickly!

    Cancelled my account and deleted my character and game. I'm done with TRION. As a hardcore pvp'er, I'm done with your neglect.
    It's a shame. **** You TRION.
