How many badges do you get for just turning up to a raid zone, and sitting at the entrance? None.You get honor, marks and arena points for sucking, you dont get squat if you suck at PVE.PVP is simpler to get to the content, go to any arena master in any city, or battle masters, its convenient.There is no progression in PVP per say. You dont need an attunement quest to enter AV, or even a minimum level of gear to earn honor/marks/arena points.You have to complete content to get rewards in PVE, not so much in PVP.

So, really, your issue is with AFKers as opposed to epic PvP gear?I can assure you there are many PvPers who show up to fight and win. It doesn't always happen, but they always try. Conversely, I've seen some wondrously lackluster raid performances rewarded with "phat lewtz."So, who deserves their purples more?

@cdb2000 Actually my issue isnt with PvPers or PvE'ers on this subject. I think making PvP epics readily available is a good thing. they are for the most part useless in PVE (well for me as a Prot Warrior anyhow) and everyone in PvP having access to the same gear is a field leveler of sorts. In other "PvP" type games, such as perhaps FPS shooters, everyone has the same equipment and its up to skill. I see the PvP epics as being along that lines. Everyone can have the same gear and then its largely skill (and spec and other stuff..i know).If you didnt have them easily available, or yo got nothing for a loss then the gap would widen really quickly between those with gear, and those without.I was really interested in the Arena tournament they posted recently, everyone on pre-made toons should be interesting.My main point was I think getting gear is alot harder in PVE and ... well really thats it.. that was the point.
