Ok, you obviously didn't play in beta.

There is no "ganking" until level 20+ as it is. There is no available open world pvp areas until the 20's, so please stop posting information like this like you have ANY idea of how this game actually plays.

Please and thank you.

Awesome idea to screw the casual players, and get the power players that much more ahead of the rest of us. That will not kill the game for the casual players. We are 80% of the people that you hope will still play your game one day while getting ganged by these power players.
Good thing I am not playing on a PVP server then. You will never be first to 50 my friend.

How is this any different than how it will be for the people who don't buy/install/play the game until December 22nd-25th and beyond? Are we going to see pity posts because the people who played the game from the beginning have an "unfair" advantage over new players?

as previously stated the awsner is obvious either deal with ganking and take measures to try and avoid it or if you dont want to deal with it go to a pve server either way not a valid complaint espeialy the idea of 30s ganking you these so called "power levelers" will want to get to cap before they gank anyways.

choice 1: dont play on pvp servers which are really the only ones with even a minor problem

choice 2: roll a character on the NEW servers they are putting up, more are coming, especially for launch day (the 20th)

you really think all the servers are up already? silly nooby

News flash. This will happen regardless.

Oh yeah cause that totally nullifies his point, someone else would have just posted it instead...

If you are gonna argue against something, atleast use sem-valid arguements.
