No, there are plenty worse.

WoW
WAR

Just a couple, out of the ones ive played anyway. AoC was better, DAoC is best but old.

Ins't this the same failure of a team that did WAR?

Also, saying WoW is silly...love or hate the game you have to admit they set the CURRENT standard for MMO pvp.

I think it may be up there for the most infuriating pvp experience ever.

rogue mage teams rank 1 every season with some pve heroes 2 shotting people with legendaries every other season to add a special m night shyamalan TWEEST in the mix.... id say the genre standard is pretty low.

No, it's not. It's actually pretty good. Yes, some classes and specs require more skill and player knowledge to play than others. So what? It's more rewarding if you can excel with a difficult spec. Sure, balancing may be needed here and there, WoW has been failing at balancing their PvP for over seven years.

If you suck at it and don't like it because of that, you can join the club by posting that "this and this sucks" and "this needs nerfed" and "this pvp sucks, I can't kill X".

I for one enjoy it a lot, far more than WoW PvP. I love the style and how certain things work, and I love Huttball. I love playing Deception, an Assassin spec that people think is terrible, and I love playing it correctly and doing my role in a warzone.

If you don't like it, that doesn't mean it sucks: it means you don't like it.

I think the basic PvP, far as the class vs class dynamics are actually pretty good.

Its everything else thats the problem, gearing, progression, environments.

WZ's as things go aren't bad Alderaan is fun, Voidstar isn't too bad, Huttball is tolerable but grates on the nerves after too many runs on it.

Ilum is...sad.

But the basic bones of the PvP dynamic? Pretty good and well thought out.
