Some of you are rediculous!
I found this on a forum for my battlegroup. I personally hate endgame. It becomes a sort of second job. I also hate 19 twinks, I have my reasons.
Years ago when I was/am a newb I had my butt handed to me by a twink guild. What did I do? I created a twink guild to defeat them. Did I, yes. What did that do? It showed me the love I have for pvp.
Personally I prefer the 49 bracket. Twinking is like having a weight class for boxing. I enjoy casually getting on and doing a few bg's and enjoying my life outside of this game. If you don't like it, I say go back to pve and down a couple of scripted bosses and feel good about yourself. I love the Johnny on the spot thinking; the panic when you're mid field and out pop two twinked out rogues with thier pocket healer, the competition amongest other top players in our "weight class" (bracket).
Sure I could do this at lvl 80, but twinking is a smaller community and we get to know eachother on a personal level. This in turn also makes the game much more enjoyable for me.
Sure, character advancement is fun. That is a big part of the addiction to this game. I would love for twinking to become ranked. Speaking of advancement, have you noticed what the Bind on account gear has done for the twinking world? Shoulder enchants from Zul'Gurub? Just to name one.
As for patches not affecting twinks, yeah that is exactly why I dislike the 19 bracket, there is very little skill involved. I began to enjoy the 49 bracket prebc, so it was very close to endgame during that era. I would like to go to 59, but with all the DK's running around, I'll pass thanks, which is a whole other topic. As for 69, well there is just too many spells you get at lvl 70, so again I pass.
Oh for the record, I have multiple twinks, I am 25, I am male, and as was stated I do belong to a twink guild.
