Nobody can really blame the pathetic state of imperial pvp on a handful of people who rerolled. It takes effort from the community to change the overall mentality.
People are a little too quick to place blame rather than fix their own crap these days.
Overall I agree with you, but in general your statement reminds me of a river.... DeNile.
Name all of the Imp toons in your guild that re-rolled from Imp to Repside. I'll give you a few hours to think about it...
Ok, now name all the better Rep PvPers that re-rolled Impside. I'll give you 3 seconds on that one.
So yea, while I will agree that bad PVP is simply bad PVP there is no doubt where a lot of "competitive" PVPers went over the last several months (since Canderous Ordo). I can name a lot of them myself.
On the other hand, those of you better PVPers that did in fact roll Impside for the challenge, my hat's off to you. It's a real grind.
