I find myself wondering whether "lower brackets" is the closest thing Blizzard has to an objective measurement of world PvP? Those in the lower brackets would, I presume, be the ones either less skilled at PvP or with lower-quality gear (from a PvP perspective)--or both. That is a situation very similar to a chance encounter in the world at large.To the extremely (or perhaps not so extremely) casual player--particularly those on a PvP server--"OP" has nothing to do with raids or Arenas and everything to do with what happens as you go about your business of questing or farming. Maybe, cat calls of the raiders and Arena enthusiasts aside, Retribution Paladins really were overpowered?

If this was the case EVERY class would have to get nerfed to oblivion because PVP in 1 vs 1 situations is never balanced. Heck, if they used that metric then shaman should be seeing something to allow them to actually beat someone.Speaking as an enhance shaman that goes to WG just to pick flowers, it is pretty sad. I'm dead in 1 CC to most classes. The ones I am not dead to shut me down and make me want to sit down and just let them kill me. I'm not beating them. And when I die to prot paladins/warriors because they control the fight, it's about time to give up on PVP.
