Last mmo I pvped alot in was WAR. I spent about 90% of the time grouped. However, if you wanted to you could join instanced pvp/RVR as a solo player and still be able to get the best gear with time. Even if you lost your instanced pvp match or died most of the time as solo in RVR you would get something for it anyway. At the end of a pvp match(winning or losing) or locking of a world zone you would get points towards your pvp rank and some tokens to buy pvp gear with. I read there will be ranked gear in pvp and that will be the best gear. But how does pvp rank/level work in this game. Do you have to have to "win every match" to rise in rank and when you hit a certain rank you just buy the gear with gold? In SWTOR I did grind out the best pvp gear solo and then when my guild mates came online we did the ranked pvp with the perfect setup. In that game the ranked(while i was still playing) pvp gear was just a different color. Most of my guild mates are still in gw2 and will probably just stay there so I will most likely just play this game solo to start with. Meaning a lot of pvp pugging. That can be fun but usually means you don't win as much. If that means it's impossible to get any gear, this game will just be another mmo I try untill I hit level cap.
