CP Gear Cap Increase, Do You Want It?

With the new transmutation system coming, I also smell a potential gear cap increase coming for the near future. Being able to re trait gear will make the new grind much easier than the old one. Might not be this year, but most certainly 2018... We have been rocking CP 160 gear for a very long time now, do you want to see the cap increased? Elaborate.

    I am looking for more skill points when the gear cap increases, like lvl70cp690, 6 more skill points at least.

    I'd like gear cap to be at a nice round number... 200 maybe? Or just do away with it completely, so that max gear is just "level 50".

    ZOS said something before about alleviating the grind or safeguarding hard-grinded gear before raising the cap (I can't remember).
    Stop right there, criminal scum!

    everyone loves more damage and stronger gear, but in this case that simply is not true.
    please increase sneak speeds.

    Players speculate about a great man things. Even if it comes to fruition does not mean they were right.

    Clearly in the case of gear CP level increase it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out it is likely coming at some point. Zos has already stated as much just a few months ago, but did not enlighten us as to when.

    The main issue is Zos increases the cap for the hell of it. No rhyme or reason, they just feel like it. LOL, with SO release they increased the level cap to v14 and said that it was needed for the new content, LMAO. Zos has vision, remember that.

    In the end a thread of this subject is just silly. The poll is even sillier.

    I'm good whatever decision they will make for that.
    It will happen eventually.

    That depends:
    If it just means, that i have to grind a ton of new mats, to craft a higher level version of my current gear, and than i have to rerun all the stuff i ran before, to get higher level version of e.g. the monstersets im currently using.....that would be bullcrap.

    If it is within a DLC like OT, which gives a ton of new sets, which replace the current sets, than fine by me.

    It doesn't matter if I want it or not. It can't happen due to how scaling works in One Tamriel.

    They'd need to abandon One Tamriel in order to raise the gear cap. Considering rhat their player base tripled after OT launched, I don't think they're eager to scrap it.

    It's actually impossible to raise the gear cap in One Tamriel. The new gear cap would be statistically identical to the old gear cap.

    The only way they could raise the cap is if the next zone they released was a CP 200 (or whatever the new cap would be) zone, while the rest of the game was still CP 160. But they won't do that due to how successful OT has been.

    Only and only if they allow to change CP on gear that is already 160, let's say with the transmut system.

    stop it with the stupid vertical progression - the game already has way too much grind as it is - especially with the constant patches and changes to mechanics - i MUCH rather have:

    - more horizontal progression - aka sets/skill lines/classes etc.
    - more content - aka stories / quests / areas and non questing-repatable-content

    if this game becomes any more grindy im out and go back to gw2 when the next update releases

    no its not - vertical progression is the way bad mmos work from uncreative designers that cant figure out other ways to make a good game - its basically the VAT verison of mmo's... politicians also only manage to come up with VAT increases cause they have no other ideas

    vertical progression is what has ruined pretty much any big mmo imo - be creative with horizontal progression which is way more rewarding to players

    If I need new gear or want to try something different is one thing, but to grind out a whole new set, is just time being spent. When a game becomes a chore, why play.
