Twinks

So, I hop into Arathi basin, and what happens? Three seconds into the game, a stealthed rogues tears me a new one. It happened so fast i just about filled my pants. So i go and meet the afore mentioned rogue out in the field, Pounce him, Shred him, then start Ripping him. He turns, cracks three Sinister Strikes off, then a Kidney Punch, then two more Sinister Strikes off, followed by a Gouge, then Backstab, another Sinister Strike, then Cold Blood and Eviscerate. I died in about five seconds. I start to recognize some of his gear, and realize "Oh lovely, one of the twinkies I've been hearing whining about". I ended up changing my strategy to hitting him really fast and hard from stealth instead of stunning him. By the end, he was dead, and I died three seconds later from his poison. All I ask is why? All I hear from people is how fun endgame is. Arenas, instancing, Raids, Dailies, Skills, Fishing, Flying and even just standing in a capital and laugh as the nooblets gawk at your gear. Yet all these level 19, 29, 39, and 49 characters I have fought have been the twink alts of level 70s. That's not the worst part. My friend recently started playing WoW, and hit level 15 rather fast. He hopped down to the auction house for some gear. He has a problem. All the gear worth buying is for outrageous amounts of money. Why? Because level 70s will pay 200 gold for a level 19 offhand dagger for their rogue. It's becoming a major problem. But at the same time, the satisfaction I get from buying out an auction, then opening trade with the person I beat and showing them I bought it, then disenchanting it and showing them the shard cannot be matched by many things.

hehe, I agree totally, bugs the hell out of me, but just have to suck it up and move on :(

I think Blizzard should introduce a cap on the power of the top end enchantments depending on the level of the BG. I think it may balance things up a bit then.

Top end enchants are only 100% effective for the lvl59+ BG's. Lower BG's and their effects are scaled down to avoid this inbalance, 20% at 19, 40% at 29, etc..

I twink in the level 29 and 39 brackets (19 was so limited it became boring fast).

I play BGs in those brackets because I don't have the time to get to the endgame content, let alone spend hours in an imaginary dungeon somewhere.

I twink for 2 reasons: 1) I have to otherwise I'd get raped by other twinks and I would have no choice but to quit a game I currently enjoy, 2) I like working out what kit I need and developing my character (something I'll never get to do at max level).

I agree that twinking as it stands ruins aspects of WoW (and other games as well, it would appear). Blizzard should regulate the parts of the game that enable twinking so that it's an option, but not one that allows you to demolish other players just because of your kit. All the current enchants should scale according to level or something(just a quickfire example, not an idea I'm suggesting might work).

Skill should always be the biggest factor imo. I fully understand getting whipped by a player with better skill, but getting smaked-up by the bastard offspring of some bored level 70 with pots of cash, loads of time and zero skill is chronically unstatisfying.  Hence, I am in the "if you can't beat them, join them" position.

WoW endgame sucks a big one.

The only way to pvp pre 70 is to twink out a char and kill all the noobs.  If you dont like it, stay outta BG till your 70.

A large part of why I don't play WoW.... and certainly would never play on a PVP server.   Too many kids and buttheads out there with nothing better to do.  and Blizzards answer... don't play on a pvp server. 

Oh look I gotta go play some City of Heroes!
