I can't think of any other game where people care so freaking much about other people's gear. Is it that you all are jealous that you put in so much hard work for your gear and some noob gets the exact same PT invite rate as you without bothering to get new gear in the last 30 levels?
This is how it works.
I invite someone to a party, they show up in adequate gear and perform ok. Next time I'm putting one together, I'll remember them, think "Hmmm, they were solid" and invite them.
They're awesome and I invite them, seeking or not.
They turn up in sh*te gear, perform badly, and I add them to that longer-than-I'd-like mental list of people who I will never invite again on any job. Ever.
