    When I was doing my 'experiment', in that round I went 47-1 or w/e it was, I got called an [expletive] twink by a twink on the other team, when I was wearing gear that cost me 2p to put together.

    Per the populace, a twink in Rift is an x9 (or a 12/13) that is doing well. That's all it is.

    There really are valid reasons, and silly rationales, on both sides.

    Twinking isn't just about rolling new players because you like the tears and are probably a budding serial killer. But sometimes it is.
    Disliking twinks isn't just about being a flailing, incompetent goof who can't be bothered to put the slightest effort into research and gear prep. But sometimes it is.

    Trion should have just bit the bullet and made two queues, locked and unlocked. Let the unlocked choose to join unlocked only or the locked+unlocked queue. Big pop-up letting them know what they might experience when they join.

    If there are enough people that enjoy either/both queues, problem solved. The unlocked get the option to bump the possibility of a match quicker by joining both. If there aren't enough people, well, tough. Trion can't make people use a feature (see quest lfg).

    But thanks for jumping into these threads. It's a shame you haven't actually read any of them before commenting though.
    Just because you have 2 R40s does not mean you don't fear the Level 50 Bracket. Bads will be Bads.

    Yep I'm sooo fearful of 50 warfronts, I shudder when I think about them.
    And that would be why I have four toons in level 50 warfronts.

    Yes bads will be bads to quote YOU. I've never actually referred to anyone as a bad, has always sounded rather rude and immature to me. But, if I had to call someone that, it would be the players, with no gear, or gear 10, 15 levels too low, that blame every one but themselves for being total rubbish.

    The most amusing thing about all the claims of the fragile new players is.. what new players? Where I'm sitting I don't see the population going up, I see it taking a nose dive.
    That's only been in the last couple of weeks that happened. I blame twinks ;)

    All of my lowbies-

    A level 29 cleric

    A level 39 mage

    A level 49 cleric

    All of them wear planar gear, some dungeon drops, some event essences. All of their gear is runed for the appropriate level. All of their ring slots and neck slots are filled in.

    All of them have the 6 slot sigil. Which cost 7500 planarite.

    That is a twink. No kidding.

    Now, does any of that stuff seem like it's "over the top"..or too hard for anyone to get?

    Every item my lowbies wear, can be attained by anyone.

    My level 49 cleric is using an epic staff that I won as a drop via instant adventure in Stillmoor.

    I did not use any coin from my main to help my lowbies. All of my lowbies make their own money. The only thing I bought with coin was the runes (from the AH)

    I guess running rifts and zone events is too much effort though for people.

    So your 29 ground out 7500 planarite and the planarite to buy 6 essences... I very much doubt it. That would take months for an actual 29 player to get. Yes, it does seem unreasonable for any new player to get that.

    Removing them all together i don't think was the best move, they should have just been moved into their own bracket.

    Either way, they needed away from the actual new players trying to learn the game.

    Ever so slight derail. Anyone that has a phone should download the phone app.
    You can play the games every hour x 6, and be rewarded stones, planarite, augments.

    A day doing nothing but playing on your phone can net you around 1k planarite and you will end up with more stones at lower levels than you'll have a use for. Swap those for planarite.

    Based on this post, I'm pretty curious on your stance about the world event BoA 6 slot Sigil/Focus and other BoA stat items. Do you own any of these on any of your toons? Did you get them with one of your high level toons and pass it down to one of your lower lvl ones? What, pray tell...is the difference?

    You bet I did..and it didn't take long at all.

    As soon as my toons hit about level 10, I started heading to the high level zones, unlocking all of the portals. I participated in high level zone events/invasions. I collected Inscribed Sourcestones, which can be turned in to the vendor in Whitefall (Iron pine peak) in exchange for planarite.

    Here's the vendor:

    I realized quickly in the game that low level invasions/events gave hardly any planarite, so I went to higher level zones to solve my problem.

    Anyone can do it.

    See, someone thinking outside of the box.

    And I know it can be done, because I ran my level 7 crafting mule to most of the portals (all save Shimmersand, Droughtlands, and Moonshade -- I ran to those ones a week later after the mule got to 11 off crafting quests) without dying to mobs (I did die twice to players).

    This was before my main hit half of these zones so I had nfi where the portals were, so I did get some help IDing them. ;)

    P.S. I'm better than nearly all of you at PvA as well. My e-peen is massive.
