Can't say while having MMA gloves on we ever tried for wrist locks. In fact much of the grappling changed due to the gloves as you were going more for dominance and ground'n pound. However grappling was a different game altogether.

Many submissions are more difficult when wearing gloves. The basic RNC itself is harder while wearing them.

But I've noticed that if I'm doing pure grappling (no gloves), wrist locks still prove to be a rare occurrence. They're just too easy to wiggle out of. Get a little sweaty and you can forget about it -- unless again, you have control of the elbow from a dominant position.

Wrist submissions are very difficult against a resisting and trained opponent. But still train them because wristbreaks would be practical to use in self-defense. The problem with locks is that you assume that you must maintain the hold for a submission. A (wrist)break is just a transition to the next technique, whether it works or not. I think there is limited sport use but very good self-defense application.

Someone being sweaty does indeed make them harder. I'm not sure at this point if we are talking about wristlocks from standing or ground. If it's from standing, then what I have found is that grab and lock have to occur at the same time, or else you should move on to something else right away. Don't try to wrestle the wrist. It leads to bad habits.
