I want just 30 pieces of gear and configuration of each piece of gear via parts. I would still earn pieces of gear and parts the same way, but it would be WAY more organized.
For example, new player starts the game, wins a match or two and gets some gear packs or from it. Inside the pack he finds 2 basic pieces of gear and some random parts for that gear and some for gear he doesnt have yet.
He goes to command and gear and notices that he has a piece of gear that decreases buildable costs. In that gear he also notices how he can toggle the part configuration. He has a part that increases the buildable cost decrease to 25% but it also makes the gear cost more to deploy in a match.
This would make the gear easier to manage. I guess it’s similar to Warframe or Destiny gear. Or even 7 days to Die.
