Good. Because hopefully this will get rid of some of the strong get stronger while the weak get weaker if you keep losing in crappy gear (because of it) while the people with great gear just keep winning.It sucks for the people just coming in.not to be rude but pvp gear is available as soon as you reach a max level. any craftable gear via any prof is betterthan nothing to get started simply asking for an easy button to pvp without losing seems ridiculous. i think the strong get stronger because they put the necessary work involved needed into pvping maybe try that
Have you even read the article? It's a fact that people with better PvP gear have easier access to even better gear. That way, it gets much harder for people who level to the max level later to gain a lot of Honor. A first come first served policy is what we currently have and it's not productive. Nobody is asking for easymode, just for a levelling of the playing field. People with the higher level gear can get honor faster (which) is okay, but this allows them to get to the 2200 rating faster, which in turn allows them to get better gear. Gear does a lot in this game, not just skill. As a way to illustrate this, look at people soloing ICC, not because they got more skilled, but because their gear got that much better.
"Players in low level battlegrounds will have their effective level raised to the maximum level allowed in that battleground bracket. Players' base stats and spells are scaled accordingly and are treated as the same level when determining hits, misses, and critical effect chance."This is a nice touch too, I hope it will stop some of the whining.
I like these changes i have only been playing WoW since 01/09/2012 :) and pvp is an aspect i have been unable to fully use due to the difficulty gearing up to compete with people able to get the top gear straight away. i do have a question tho and that is can anyone confirm or speculate as to whether the current ilvl458 honor point trinkets, rings and necks will also be craft-able or would it be prudent to also get those while waiting for these changes? thank you to all who reply.
