As per usual with discussions like this there's a whole bunch of crying with very little basis in actual fact.A great many twinks are those who have already conquered the Level-70 PvP game. A great many ex-Marshall/Warlord team players, high-ranked arena gamers etc play twinks. It is also of course a very good PvP outlet for raiders who do not wish to pay through the nose for respec costs and have an entirely different set of gear to play what is little more than a tacked-on minigame that people take way too seriously for some reason or another.PvP is largely meaningless before 70. If you're getting schooled by twinks then simply level past the bracket. You are not being prevented from doing anything remotely legitimate. If anything, those who are taking the 19, 29 and 39 brackets seriously and turning it into a new kind of metagame and community are the one's who have the right to dictate what goes on in those battlegrounds, not the casual leveler who goes into a BG at level 15 and realizes that 'hey, y'know, those guys with better gear and a lot more experience are tearing me apart, my solution to this problem is complain about it and demand that Blizzard destroys yet another part of the game for the benefit of those who can't handle competition'.PvP is easy, it always has been. It's very much formulaic (so is raiding, don't get me wrong), rock/scissor/paper stuff. Punching hotkeys in the right order does not make you a skillful gamer. Arguing that twinks are those that can't handle Level 70 PvP is akin to arguing that those who play noughts and crosses can't handle the 3 dimensional version. It's still noughts and crosses, there are just more of them.
