Regarding the twonking aspect of this change...I just read in the Q&A over BGs that exp will only be awarded for actions, not kills.Personally, I abhor twinking, simply because so many levelers and first timers would like to have fun with BGs and twinks prevent that. I'm glad that twinks are all happy about it, point remains, it prevents many people from participating in BGs, as it dd me on my first toon ever. When I heard that the exp lock could be implemented at level, I got sad, as it seemed to me it would make it easier for twinks to build a ridiculously OP gearset from dungeons without worrying about leveling accidentally. When I later saw that they would be put into their own BG queue, away from non-twinks, I rejoiced.Until reading the Q&A.Now, I predict that this is going to make twinking even worse. Simply put, now twinks will be able to lock exp, and farm dungeon blues to their hearts content, where as before, depending on when you started building a set, you could only get so many BoPs before you risked leveling. Now, when twinks are thrown into a separate BG, I think this is a great idea, as it will really allow them to go absolutely nuts with gearing.Problem is this, they'll be able to unlock their exp and go right back to normal BGs *after* they've built an even more nuts set than they had before. And since exp will only be awarded from actions, *not kills*, twinks will be able to do what they've always done best, which is farm kills on undergeared levelers while completely ignoring objectives. If exp only comes from completing objectives, no twink has to worry about locking exp for BGs, just don't cap a flag and you don't have to worry about exp gain.Three possible explainations I can think of... A) Blizz will have some sort of system where if you have locked exp once, you're routed to the "twink" BGs there after until you level into the next bracket. B) This is a big oversight in a system that was designed to not only make old-world raids feasible, but also to curb twink domination of BGs. C) Blizz secretly loves twinks and *wants* them to dominate, and thus built in this easy exploit which will allow twinks to do even more than they did before.You tell me...
