A couple of points: The times the X1 people bug the hell out of me is at Level 11 and 21. Level from 11 to 17 can be done in an afternoon, why are you wasting time in a BG? 21 to 27 is also a pretty short gap. Also, the 19 and 29 brackets are full of twinks and a level 11/21's are just going to be constantly one-shot. How does anyone find that fun? As a general rule of thumb, before you go in a BG take the first digit of your level and subtract it from the cap. There's the level range you can expect people won't really care if you're there. So for the 11-19 bracket, be 18 or 19. For the 40-49, be level 45-49. I do have sympathy for the people in the PITA grind from 51 to 58. I can completely understand wanting to take a break from questing in that bracket. Now as for twinks being cheaters, less QQ more Questing. If you have a problem with twinks in the 11-19 bracket, wait for it....LEVEL UP. Getting from 14 or so to 20 shouldn't take more than 10-15 hours of play time for even the most casual of players. Twinking is a fun meta-game that takes a lot of serious decision making, planning, and time. Not to mention that when you take down a twink in a BG it almost feels like downing a raid boss.

I love it when cheaters try to justify their cheating.No, twinking is not a "fun metagame", it's finding ways around the rules. Killing another player should not feel like "Downing a raid boss", especially when that player gets right back up

First off, even by your definition, I'm no cheat. I don't have and never will have any twink characters. I don't have that kind of gold to waste. Secondly, did twinks kill your parents and burn down your village or something? Why do you have such a big issue with them? Why are you spending so much time PvP'ing in a bracket that can be leveled through in a lazy afternoon? Twinking isn't breaking the rules. Last I checked there's nothing in ToS about gearing up a BG twink. If enough people and/or Blizzard thought it was a problem I'm sure they would just place larger restrictions on the level range of enchants and armor kits. By the way, I'm honestly curious why you seem so butt-hurt over this? If you really like to spend so much time in the 11-19 bracket then wouldn't you want to gear yourself up and get better? Oh wait, that's twinking.
