because for the poor guy who just bought the game 2 weeks ago. reached lvl 15 and came across a battlemaster.. hmm whats this lets have a go. oh PvP! ive heard this is good. 3 minutes later.. "press to release""press to release""press to release"yeah.. pvp. it sucks.above a certain combined gear lvl the characters should be moved into a seperate battleground and that goes for every bracket. to stop people being facerolled and actually have a fair balanced game. say what you like, twinks prey on the weaker players who dont know any better than to avoid lvl 19 wsg.(althought personally i like wsg 19, even as non twink. i find it funny as #### killing a twink because i can imagine the nerd rage behind the keyboard.. "but my hunter is a 1337 twinkzor!" /spit

Because of how unfun they make the battlegrounds for non-twinks. I refuse to enter a BG when leveling a new alt until at least the 40's.That said, I do not think Blizzard should get rid of twinks. I just wish there was a better system for BG's that would separate them from the people simply leveling.Many twinks say they twink to fight other twinks, not one shot everyone else. This survey supports it, but when a non-twink tries to defend his flag or flag carrier, or even carry the flag themselves it's not something one can realistically follow.

Why not?Because it's a valid way to play the game.

When I first started playing wow I thought I would give it ago.It made me never do pvp until around level 50+ because of all the griefing. I hate twinks more than gold sellers who hack accounts for gold.

Twinks just make people realise that PvP is competitive(which it is) at an early level.Surely people only know about twinks after they've been told "Everything you hate about pvp is because of twinks" by non twinks? It's reasonable to assume that your casual player who just enters a BG to "have a go" would simply leave the BG thinking they're not good and/or need more practice, why would they immediately assume it was gear that made the difference?It sucks to get owned by other people so easily... but they prepared themselves better than you and maximised everything they could to be the best they can in a level range that they find more fun.... so... what's so wrong with that?Without a doubt i believe the people that hate twinks would've gotten owned in BG's with or without twinks.So yeah i agree. Why remove twinks? Anyone who dislikes them is probably the sort of person who doesn't enjoy that sort of BG and would level past it relatively swiftly either way. Additionally how could twinks be unhappy with the attention Blizz gives them. Barely any patches effect skills pre-19's.

People twink for the same reason as people go to low level areas on pvp servers and gank, there is no skill in one shotting people and all they end up doing is killing off the BGs at an early level which can put people off the game.I personally think they should just give XP out for winning BGs, that would keep things moving. I doubt these people would actually leave, my guess is that they would be sitting around the summoning stone at SM hoping for a low level to arrive.

Whoa, Whoa, Whao!Some of you are rediculous!I found this on a forum for my battlegroup. I personally hate endgame. It becomes a sort of second job. I also hate 19 twinks, I have my reasons. Years ago when I was/am a newb I had my butt handed to me by a twink guild. What did I do? I created a twink guild to defeat them. Did I, yes. What did that do? It showed me the love I have for pvp. Personally I prefer the 49 bracket. Twinking is like having a weight class for boxing. I enjoy casually getting on and doing a few bg's and enjoying my life outside of this game. If you don't like it, I say go back to pve and down a couple of scripted bosses and feel good about yourself. I love the Johnny on the spot thinking; the panic when you're mid field and out pop two twinked out rogues with thier pocket healer, the competition amongest other top players in our "weight class" (bracket).Sure I could do this at lvl 80, but twinking is a smaller community and we get to know eachother on a personal level. This in turn also makes the game much more enjoyable for me.Sure, character advancement is fun. That is a big part of the addiction to this game. I would love for twinking to become ranked. Speaking of advancement, have you noticed what the Bind on account gear has done for the twinking world? Shoulder enchants from Zul'Gurub? Just to name one.As for patches not affecting twinks, yeah that is exactly why I dislike the 19 bracket, there is very little skill involved. I began to enjoy the 49 bracket prebc, so it was very close to endgame during that era. I would like to go to 59, but with all the DK's running around, I'll pass thanks, which is a whole other topic. As for 69, well there is just too many spells you get at lvl 70, so again I pass.Oh for the record, I have multiple twinks, I am 25, I am male, and as was stated I do belong to a twink guild.
