Lol "twinks aren't happy with even more limits...". Well well well, finally know how the lowbies who aren't twinks that you "pwn" feel. Glad they are taking steps against twinking. Twinks, when I complained about you and your OP'ness, I was told to f off and adapt. Well twinks, since your complaining about becoming fair, f off and adapt.

Make no mistake, even with this change, it will still come down to gear, same as always, and after that, class balance. Those who spend the time and money to equip their twinks will still own those who arrive in even their best greens.

@Ilnara Of course I don't expect this to end twinking totally, heck I doubt it'll be more than a couple good sized thorns in their arse to be honest. I'm just happy Blizzard is finally starting to get serious with the anti-twink mood. If this tones down the twinks in BGs for me as I lvl through the brackets, then by God I love it. Just so sick and tired of going into a 20's bracket and seeing people with 3600+ HP or something.

Huma ; why do you expect not to put in as much work and time as others yet have the same chance as them? See, you guys think this levels the playing field 'skill' wise and it does no such thing, because you anti-twinks aren't using any semblance of skill in the first place. You don't get the best gear.You don't get the best level appropriate enchants.You don't do any of those things....Yet you expect to wander into PvP encounters against people who do go that extra mile and expect to have a chance. Do you expect to run Naxx10 in quest greens too? Entitled to that as well are you? You people are scrubs.. blizz only is doing this because you crybabies can't figure out a way to get past it. Well, enjoy the dead BG's, and waiting 15 hours to even get a BG going because there are no twinks there to proliferate them. Seriously, next BG you go into count the number of non-twinks compared to twinks, then, remove all the twinks, tell me how many players there would be left in that BG.. Based on my twink stint, perhaps 2 to 3 per side was all I ever saw, and don't give me this "we just avoid them because of twinks" garbage.. because as I said, those people will still go the extra mile to get the best gear and enchants, and you'll show up in your greens and still get rolled. Idiots.

@ Il:Because everyone knows it takes so much skill to pay 80s to run you through VC over and over.Twinking may be about a lot of things but please don't pretend it has anything to do with skill. You're not fooling anyone outside your basement dwelling minority.

@Ilnara You know why BGs would be dead without twinks? Cause thats basically all there is, twinks. Twinks scared off casuals and made it unfun to play in a BG as you lvl'd up. Take out twinks, and the people who used to play in BGs before twinks moved in will come back, so NO BGs WOULDN'T be dead, they'd be better off. The thing is dude, people like me do not plan to stay at, lvl 19/29/39. We have bigger and better things to do, like, lvl 80 so we can really fight the people who really did earn the right to pwn my arse. Twinks are the real scrubs, because they suck at high-lvl PvP so they stick to the low levels, NEVER level up, and just hoard the best gear for that level. Of course they are gonna be pumped up and crap, because people who level through to 80 don't totally gear up for brackets other than 60-80. This is what makes them unfair, because someone who decided he sucked at higher lvl PvP stayed in the 10's bracket and geared up with stuff the NORMAL player wouldn't be able to get unless they farmed gold all their lives. Period dude, twinks are scrubs. All I want to do is enjoy the occasional BG as I lvl to 80. Twinks, who have decided 19/29/39 is the new 80, make that unfun. Twinks are the real scrubs.

@Ilnara:Exactly what I was thinking.I have a 29 rogue twink who, atm, isn't my main focus (barely played him in the last few months tbh), but I put a ton of work into him and expect it to show in BGs and the occasional arena.@anyone not agreeing with himConsider the fact that PvP isn't required to reach level 80, or a great way to make gold/experience.Consider the fact that most PvP gear you get when you level is quickly replaceable, but time consuming to get.Consider that fact that NOT EVERYONE LIKES LEVEL 80 PVP.Consider the fact that most end-game raid content on live atm is BORING AS HELL.If someone doesn't level their character up to 80, they shouldn't have the opportunity to get the best gear for their class? That doesn't seem right at all.Try twinking before knocking on it. It's not as "easy" as the ignorant claim it is.
