This is not always true. It certainly isn't ideal to be x3 or lower in a certain bracket, but you can be effective (to a certain extent) if and only if you know what value you can bring at that level. I don't think any flag runner would turn down any healer, even a very low level one, while trying to run the flag. Priests bubbles and Psycic Screams are very worth while, no matter what number you level ends in. Dispels can also be a godsend, and even holy nova to find rogues while on D can have use. Frost mages are still very effective at CC at lower levels of brackets. Yes, you have a high chance of missing and a high probability of dying, but you can provide value on D in WSG and in supporting a flag carrier. Do not, under any circumstances, forget to use counterspell, remove curse, and polymorph. All three are amazingly effective regardless of how you stack up to the bracket. Other healers can be effective, much like priests can (don't forget entangling roots, and Shamans have lots of totems that can be a pain in PvP). Rangers will always be a PITA in the lower brackets (until 50-59 bracket, when DKs start appearing). If you are an herbalist, use your instant cast heal over time, especially if you are low on stam. Its a huge, huge burst (I cast it right before I ice block). Most importantly, if you are under leveled for your bracket, play exactly how you would if you were undergeared - do not run around alone, or you will die. Expect to die, often. Worry more about CC and helping your teammates survive. It is pointless to try to lead the BG in damage done, and it is pointless to try to stay alive the whole time. Be a distraction and piss the other team off. Make them hunt you down. The more time they spend killing you, the less time they are spending on the flag carrier.
