I don't get why people are so upset about this article.. The fact is stated that a player on the low end of a bracket will have a tough time, and its true. A lowbie player will 9/10 be much less effective than if they were a few levels higher, sometimes to the point where you are almost useless. Its true that a lower player can definitely be helpful, I spent days doing nothing but PvP on my paladin when she was 34, and on my Rogue when he was 42 and I did well enough. The truth can't be denied though, and when its stated theres this indignant explosion? I don't get it.As for saying "I pay my $15" thats the biggest load of crap, and its pretty annoying how often it seems to be flaunted here. Yea, you pay your $15, so does everyone else. Paying to play Blizzard's game doesn't give you any more rights than every other person. You pay for Blizzard to provide you a service, as does every other person in that BG. If you pay for a haircut, that doesn't give you the right to punch another customer there in the face.

People are upset for the same reason people are always upset, an elitist opinion was presented that is thoroughly derogative toward those who are not in line with it.It is a fact that just about any class or character will have a greater potential for awesome at a higher level than at a lower one. It is, however, incorrect to conclude that this makes levels ending in less than 5 worthless in a BG. They may potentially be worth less, but are not worthless.Ultimately, a stupid player is a hindrance at any level or tier of gear, and a smart player is an asset at any level or tier of gear. You only need to watch four 29 twinks chasing a lone 21 priest while their FC dies or their node is captured to see this in action.
