@fearinlightI enjoy PVP quite a bit and I'm not even afraid to admit that I'm not very good at it. However world PVP in WoW is not even remotely what I'd call fun. In fact I'd even argue that it doesn't require all that much skill. At best it simply reinforces the fact that as long as you're a higher level and have better gear than the other player you'll most likely win.More than once I've been jumped by much higher level players that weren't just bad, they were embarrassingly bad. But that's just inconsequential because they only have to manage to hit me twice in order to kill me. I can draw the encounter out, I can run and try to hide or I can let them kill me and hope they don't like camping. But unless I fight a flawless fight (and I have now and again) the odds of me defeating someone in an uneven battle is very, very slim.As I see it then world PVP in WoW presents the gankee with an opportune time to take a bio break while the ganker shows of his mad skills on what amounts to a glorified target dummy.
