    LMAO. This is probably the most accurate description of the misery a new player experiences in PvP.

    It's ridiculous, and creates an atmosphere that is not even in the most remote fashion conducive to bringing new player into the fold.

    I hate to say it, I really do...But given the way this is being 'handled' I think the roads are being put into place for Rift to become a SOE property. Wouldn,t be the first time an MMO was developed with the idea of it being pawned off on Sony.

    I cannot for the life of me imagine why and Developer would establish such a hostile and overwhelming environment for new players.

    I've only been playing Rift since late January and just got into PvP this week. Twinking ruins the experience. Even at level 19 with greens and 1-2 pieces of dungeon blues I've got a 19 twink of my same class with 30% more health than me and crits for more than double me. A single twink crit cuts me down to 10% health. Huge fun factor there...

    As sad as this is, it's true. Everytime I instagib someone with 4.5k health, I feel bad deep down because I know that person may just stop PvPing altogether and thus the community gets smaller and Trion cares less and less about PvP.

    They really ought to work on bolstering.

    LOL, then you should play WoW, where a Twink has 200% more HP than you, and can 1 hit you without a crit.

    I believe the gap between a fresh 50 and a geared 50 is much worse than that of Twinks, and regular players in that bracket. Something should be done with 50's I think sub brackets are fine though, and people that play Rift are used to being spoiled.

    Having R40 and HK gear in the 50 bracket is basically twinking, honestly.

    I do hope things like that get sorted out. The faster balancing, both class-wise and rank-wise, gets fixed, the faster we can get new content.
