On The Bastion server, there were a few level 49 twinks with fully augmented gear (18-19k HP). They always leave games before they ended to avoid getting XP from them.

The key difference with "twinking" is that everyone at max level is closing the gear gap eventually, whereas very few are in the lowbie bracket. Most people just level on to 50 so that twinks have a persistent gear gap.

I've done a ton of lowbie games, even to the point of leveling completely with WZs. Bragging about 190k damage in the lowbie bracket is sad, especially as a gunslinger which is one of the fastest maturing classes. The level of skill in the lowbie bracket is abysmal, which is why bad players find solace in it.
