males under 21 would explain the "OMFG Worst group evar" comments you hear in most BGs and immature behavior over losses.I never understood the twinking logic. To permanently gimp your character at a certain point... for what? If you ever decide to level the toon, you'll need to upgrade eventually. If not, what is the point? Trying to be the best in the BG?If so, let me just state I really don't care about some level 19 with dual wield Crusaders or Mongoose (or whatever it is now) and maxed enchants on blue level 19 gear. That just says you have a rich main, not that you are "uber 1337"

I think your perspective is kind of "glass half empty" in terms of thinking a twink has "gimped" there toon. I think the opposite, I've maximized my toon. It's no different than people at lvl 80 wearing the best PvP gear with the best Enchants/gems that other people may not be able to get, or are not interested in getting because their focused on another aspect of the game. The people with out will get rolled in a BG same as a non-twink in one of the x9 brackets. I fail to see the difference. It's not like a twink has access to 'special' gear/enchants that others can't get if they wanted to with some work

also, I think the x9 brackets can actually be more fair. With end game PvP people do get locked out of certain gear options due to arena rating requirements, (I loathe arena btw)

Half empty sounds about right. I don't doubt some people actually like doing the PvP and want to be the best in the bracket. I just don't see it. I'd rather work closer to 80 then to stop for a pure pvp character. Of course I tend to dislike PvP in general so I could have a tainted view of it all.It's the people who want to be the best so they can steamroll everyone that makes it annoying.
