The soft cap is bad system. (Criticism)

Yeah, but if one weeks 1-2 the softcap is 340 but on week 5 the softcap is 360 and at week 7 it is up to 370? If I missed weeks 1, 4, 5, and 6 and am sitting at 350, the softcap no longer applies to me during my catch up at week 7 when I can play again. This is instead of week 1 having a 340 softcap and week 7 having a 340 softcap. Anyone who is anti-catch-up mechanics is a whambulance passenger.

What if the solution is content rollout? New stuff each week, which gets you better gear than the week before. If you are 'behind', just play extra to catch up before the new stuff drops.

This way it wouldn't 'feel' like a gate.

The problem with this is that, like people have said in this thread, they don't want to feel like they are required to play certain content to level up. They want to just play.
