Yes and no. The main issue is an influx of more newer players with a piss poor attitude towards the hobby and community (this being a result of the growing availability of clearsoft to the general public). Players with a crappy attitude can ruin even a casual skirmish.
On the the topic of gear alone (completely ignoring the player), it is only an issue at a milsim event. Players not making even a minimal effort in putting together a kit can be a bit of a mood killer at a milsim event.
