OMG this is just first I LMAO so hard, but then I was sad when I remembered how true this is...I've been PVPing in MMOs for well over 10 years now and the nature of PVP (and the fun level) has changed dramatically, for the's no longer about the pure fun of it...and it mostly has to do with the change of emphasis from OWPVP to WZ-instanced PVP...but I won't go into a long schpeel about it...dont want to detract from the OP.

This should be stickied for sure!

Very well written, friend! I got a great laugh out of it. Especially the premades in cookie-cutter specs squaring off. I just got out of a stalemate voidstar that fit that description like a glove!

PvP is not for everybody, just like every other sport or activity. Some players are good, some players are bad. The only different is that MMO's have forums, where the bad players try to change the rules.

You mustn’t back out now, gaze upon those of the ninth layer, the most vile souls in all SW:TOR PVP!” I watched in horror as in the first frame 1000 Imperial Battlemasters suddenly rez’d in one spot, then the next frame showed a massive explosion that took up the whole screen covering everything we saw with numbers… we waited 5 more seconds before the next frame was revealed, all the Imperials lay dead in the same spot. “This is the layer for the Ilum exploiters, those who joined Ilum during the bugged patch and quickly gained Battlemaster rank without any work at all. They are forever doomed to 1 FPS or less and they are unable to log out, all they can do is revive only to lag more and be unable to activate any abilities and get nuked down. This is their fate for the rest of eternity.”
