I guess the question is "Where do you draw the line for someone who has no chance of winning?" Aside from arenas and bg's, when is PvP really "fair".If my level 70 priest is out of mana and wanding a mob to death in grinding gear, a rogue comes along and kills, is that really fair? A competent warlock, regardless of mana, can beat virtually any skilled mage with relative ease. How is that significantly different than a 70 vs. a 35? There is no amount of skill keeping my priest alive. I frequently find on PvP servers that Rogues, Hunters are the primary benefactors of random world PvP, since both can avoid it relatively well, and both are at a severe advantage when they start 1v1 themselves. I play Alliance on a server that's almost 2:1 Horde:Alliance. To most people, this would be frustrating. When I started playing on the server (I was there for my real life friend, who played -SURPRISE!- a hunter), I hated it. After a long while, my viewpoint has changed. It's true, the sense of constant danger, being out-numbered provides an additional challenge to the game. The new dailies are difficult ENTIRELY BECAUSE I have to keep alive long enough to keep my flame up in Hellfire, while a "horde patrol" flies around scanning for me.Some people like PvP servers, because they like dominating and destroying other people. Others enjoy playing a survivalist in a jungle of douchbags.
