TBH I think once you get 20+ you are pretty much good to go as long as you know what you are doing. Most classes take off at that lvl when you can get the lvl 20 PVP gear and also your lvl 20 tree ability.

However I would really like the requirement to que for WZ's to be 14 for non preferred status characters with the lack of sprint and the people that decide to que as soon as they hit 10 with no AC.

This simply isn't true, there are only a few classes that get most of their stuff early on. Classes liike marauders, juggs, ops etc. have to wait till mid/late 30's (or even 40) to get things really going. And the pre-50 "PvP" gear doesn't mean a thing. You can just buy similar or better gear from the gtn or planet comms. It only matters if you only do PvP.

I would like to see this as well. I just do not think it is achievable with the current player population. And yes, even with stats increased to level 49, skills and gear can make a huge impact, especially as players get to mid 40s, giving people with higher level unfair advantage (assuming player skill is equal).

YOU ARE NOT GETTING ANYTHING FOR PVP FOR ANOTHER 8 MONTHS!!!

Seriously, if you look at how often they add content to pvp, it is usually every 8 months.
What you can expect in 2-3 months or so are some new tier of gear and some buffed abilities to play around with to keep people busy like bubble stun or smash. Of course these buffed abilities will suck in PvE so that PvE doesn't get ruined.

hate to burst your bubble good fellow, but the devs have been chomping at the bit about an event to do with ilum. so there is likely going to be some more PvP content released with a 1-2 months

Hey, just wait for the 50-55 bracket, when you have to pay $20-$25 to unlock your skills and be competitive!

In any case, a smart PvPer can out-skill a level 49 on a level 10 toon. Please note that I said a 'smart PvPer', which is why we see a lack of people who can do it.
You get more advance abilities that do more damage, you get more powerful heals, you get more CC's, there's a huge advantage you get being in your 40's over people in there 20's...

If your say 25 and you go up against someone who is 49 and geared up your going to die fast, now if the 49 still has green gear then ya you might have a chance.

I hate to burst your bubble but Ilum will never make a comeback. The game engine cannot handle open world pvp.
With the terrible job the devs have done with the graphics and optimization of graphics in this game, there is no freaking way you can expect a big battle to happen in Ilum.

you get sprint at level 1 now. Been that way for a while.

You can't compare a lvl 20 guardian with a lvl 40 one. The lowbie can't spec smash monkey, he cant spec anything much really. The high level one can run full spec smash on offense and go hybrid tank in huttball or on defense...
