I'm a reasonably well geared sin on europa and my take on this is that, you could still have fun playing with olds and +7/8's, for example i have died to people with those items before, if their are 5 people with not so great items they will still put a beating on a fully duffed rogue. But you are not going to be a god and doing 2 v 8's with those kind of items sadly. Honestly for me it does not matter the items of a player when i'm attacking them, any rogue on the server is a 1-hit when fully duffed, it doesn't matter if they have +7 and old's or +8 krowaz, full +3's and +9 weapons and the same goes for other well geared sins.
Bottom line is you can still play the game and have fun with +7/8's and olds but don't expect to do anything too special.
My example with noob gear was simply to illustrate the idea that without all this GG gear that people perceive to be the norm, I was still able to keep my priest cured and minored, do 1.2k spike on a debuffed priest, and survive. It illustrated the notion that with average gear (better than what my sin has), you can play just fine.
Most of the people supporting this idea play in parties, so of course you're still gonna get kills and survive if you're the 1 shitty geared player out of 8 with +8s and higher (getting carried basically).
Anyway I'm done now. It is playable with +7s without a doubt, it's not like you'll get 1 hit without duffs, but it's by no means optimal and you're dead weight on your own. Back in 2008 with above average gear I had issues hitting for higher than 600 with 70 arrows in carnac-west, and to think that in 2014 someone in +7s and olds can still hold his own makes me chuckle honestly.
so who have the bigger epeen?
Bryan or Screamer?
EDIT: What am I saying... All Cwest players are #1 in the game.
