I mean I'm going in for lowbies and getting smacked down in like 2 seconds flat. Doesn't matter what im wearing or using, at best I can do like 2% damage. God forbid I play a healer and get killed in milliseconds instead. Battlegrounds in particular are literally unplayable. Unless on the off chance I am fighting some actual lowbies it then feels normal.
There will always be twinks in lowbies in about any game. If they made Aliance rank account wide and capped on that, then at least people would have to buy a new account and can’t reuse gold lowbie gear sets.
I am a constantly returning player, and whenever I attempt to dabble in PvP I'm just backhanded right out of it. (under 50 PvP) Absolutely ridiculous matchups. For one I can't do anything to anybody ever. They can kill me in seconds though. Damage abilities don't do anything at all ever. This is supposed to be under 50, I don't think anybody who actually plays under 50 pvp is truly under 50. I can see why no other actual noobies to PvP ever bother.
How do I even make it playable?
True enough, I would do the same in SWTOR. Make alts specifically for lowbies, but never have I played something this bad for noobies. At least lowbies have a chance in other games, you literally can't do anything at all in this. Moreso battlgrounds, you can run with a group in the Cyrodill campaign and pretend you are doing something at least.There will always be twinks in lowbies in about any game.

I have always been a PvX player. I'll play both PvP and PvE pretty much equally or one over the other. In SWTOR for example I was more of a PvPer, in WoW I prefer PvP. Not saying the PvP in those are perfect either. So while I am a PvX I usually lean towards PvP, but I have never played an mmorpg with PvP that is so DIFFICULT to get into. I actually enjoy it in this game, especially battlegrounds WHEN I can actually compete. If I don't die in like 2 seconds flat and can actually play I think it's really fun. That only ever happens like 1% of the time though. I suppose the only way to get into in this without getting frustrated is to be babied by some group. It's too bad I don't know anyone for that.Keep in mind that in under 50 there are a lot of players who know PvP and spec specifically to take advantage of scaling and people who don’t know how to play that Well. They’ll usually be in that sweet spot around level 39-49. Unless you’re naturally gifted at games, PvP isn’t something you dabble in. I think it takes a year or so to really understand it after playing at least a few different classes both mag and stam. At least if you learn on your own as has been my experience. If you have really good PvPers toguide you through you could proably get good in a few months.
