Are Repub pug groups getting worse? Or is it just me?

I played 3 lowbie matches with my sniper last night. The first, a Novare Coast, was amazing - lots of back and forth, and we ended up winning the match with 12% left. Pretty sure the Rep side on that was all PUG. The other two matches . . . not so good.

I would not be surprised if there was a couple of folks who were power leveled by a friend to 50 but i think the majority of people who took advantage of the xp boost were already playing the game
I do think most imps would testify that they is one tionese geared (or worse) in 30-40% of our matches for as long as i can recall, so i doubt overall it had much to do with a double xp weekend, I do think you will see a influx of recruit geared folks tho because they did not max out some coms from 10-49, there were also be vetran players with max coms that will shift gear between toons via gree gear and have mostly WH/EWH geared toons, my ragequit scoundrel will be in that boat next week :P

So, you have a fresh 50 with no idea how their class works and no idea how the warzone maps work. Like it isn't bad enough being a fresh 50 in recruit even knowing how to play.

I saw a commando wearing the Tionese set last night with Valor rank 9 in a Civil War. He simply did not know about the pvp gear. If it brings us a larger player base I'm fine with it as long as they stick around and get better/learn from those of us who have been here. If I see someone with obviously no clue I try to take it to tells with them and point them in the right direction. Someone did something similar for me in WoW when I started and it helped keep me with the game. I just try to pay it forward.
See I don't mind if someone doesn't know or still needs to learn, but my problem is the people that argue with me thinking that they actually know what theyre doing
