because there is no smash or bubblestun. Seems like an easy fix then for lvl 50 pvp. Right?

Both of these exist in lowbie PVP. People are just bad so you think it is fun because they don't know their classes or use their most annoying specs to the fullest. Any decent PVPer rolls over everyone in lowbies, so yes if you want easy games just twink a toon, stay at level 49 by leaving right before games end!!

not really. since lowbie is populated by levels 10-49, and stun bubble is fairly high into a bad spec tree (4th tier), you don't find many sages/sorcs with the capability/desire to stun-bubble.

guardians/juggs do tend to put out decent dmg, especially those in their 40s, so I assume they're focus/rage. I have more hp than most tanks, so it's hard to say how hard they're hitting in lowbie compared to 50s w/o parsing. it may be of interest (perhaps just an anomaly on my server?) that the sents/maras in lowbie are kind of a joke in comparison to the tanky AC. there are a few plausible reasons for that, however.

thats not true ... but this is not problem in lowbie ... ppl just dont know how to pvp, tanks dont do protection, dps do 50k dmg, and 90% o healers ... they dont speak in chat, they dont know what is field respec and stealther is best for guarding etc ...

just terrible ...

Oh there are plenty of smashers, they just don't hit ridiculously hard unless you come across one in the 40's, and even then they might hit 4k if they are well geared (most are not). I go high endurance when leveling though so 4k is meh to me when I waltz into a wz with 15k hp at level 25 lol.

But for the most part, yes, lowbies are much more fun/relaxing imo because there are way less annoying aspects that happen normally in 50's and because bubble stun is so high in the lightning tree you don't see many bubble stunners because hybrids just arn't feasible in lowbies unless you are 40+. I've been pretty much just leveling a bunch of alts and only doing the pvp daily on my main. Don't really have any interest in doing any extensive amount of 50 pvp till they fix smash/bubble stun (be nice if they fixed resolve to but I doubt that will ever happen).

Lowbies are just terrible, I don't know how anyone could like them more than level 50.

lowbies are not perfect, they have their own brand of OPness, mainly the 40+ OPs who can stun-lock/burst you to death through their opening rotation. That being said, i much prefer lowbie pvp. smash dmg is more reasonable, most people do not have their full set of stuns and bubble-stunning idiots dont have all their skills to be effective other than to stun.

Mainly there is more variety. When you join a lowbie wz, you'll see all classes spread out, different strategies, etc. Join a 50 wz, and all you see are mostly smashers (marauders mostly) and sorcs with the other classes sprinkled in.

You get unbalanced teams in lowbies as well. I have faced sniper/GS heavy teams, PT/VG heavy teams, warrior/knight heavy teams, its all random.

No smashers, because annihilation is better for lowbie (for marauder), bubble stun to be good needs level 47 (so you have good healing and bubble stun), sins killer's hybrids need 48L too to be at full capacity.
that leaves us with PT pyro who are deadly on lowbie, but not so common for some reason, snipers who bolster nicely, and operatives who are rare to the bone. (and rep equivalents).

so no, lowbie is not fun. it's filled with baddies, ignorance, lack of intrest in winning (I'll get my exp any ways so why bother) and any teamplay.

only 2 kinds of people might enjoy it.
1. good players who like destroying single targets and to change the game course by them selves (which is an illusion, since it's only possible on lowbie as oponents are usualy bads)
2. bads with tunnel vision who can't see how bad they are and how their badness cost team score. (ignorance is a bliss right?)

ofcourse that's to be expected, as lowbie is a training ground, I don't expect anything else there and I'm not being an elitist, I'm just stating fact about that bracket.

oh, and premades on lowbies are more deadly. 4 coordinated dps with experience can win a warzone even with 4 ******* as team mates.
