"More folks OUGHT to have guessed 371 was down the pike, and planned accordingly."I think this issue is often communicated badly so people think this is the way it usually goes. As Ironcrust indicated, though, this was not something anyone could have guess was coming down the pike because it's not the way it's ever gone.The PvE analogous situation would be this. 4.2 drops and all that nice 359 gear gets moved from the Valor Vendor to the Justice Vendor. Cool! You haven't been raiding but wanted to get into Tier 12 raids. Now you can do a bunch of heroics and get all that 359 gear to get ready, so you do.One week later, they remove all that gear from the Justice Vendor and replace it with the same named items, but they're all slightly better at 365 iLevel. Now, you'd be encouraged to do the exact same grind to replace your 359 tier 11 gear with 365 tier 11 gear.Obviously this would be annoying, and you wouldn't expect someone to suggest you should have expected it to happen that way.I'm not saying you're being a jerk. Exactly what happened is confusing and unclear to people who don't PvP much. I didn't understand the issue either until I finally did some looking into it.
