- Gotten any training for new/upgraded skills since level 1
- Chose an Advanced Class
- Used Sprint
- Upgraded gear beyond quest drops

She had somehow also managed to put her companion on passive mode, and was basically just auto-attacking everything. It was a serious case of /facepalm. I've often wondered how some players can manage to be so cluelessly horrible in PvP. Now I know why. Players like this do exist.
Question is, was she having the time of her life ? Getting to 15 with lvl 1 abilities only seems possible if you're having fun.

I find that it's pretty much the same PUGing. You get some bad ones, but so does the other team.

I always get a kick out of how many of them can fight pretty well; but have no sense on the objectives. Kind of leaves it up to the ones that understand what needs to be done to focus on objectives and kind of use the deathmatch teammates as a distraction.

If they are F2Pers then they havent been playing that long, instead of calling them bads or the R word how about letting them know what is was they did wrong and try to help them. If i was new to a game and folks trashed me for just trying to learn that would give me a bad attitude.

I've seen 2 Troopers with no advanced class...in the same match.

Just now there's a Sentinel yielding only 1 lightsaber, wearing only head piece, chest and legs and doing less than 2k damage in 2 matches.

I haven't seen anyone trash talking in the warzones I've been in. Did I ever say that I trash talked in this thread? I've explained that I've tried to help but you can't help the unwilling. In fact if anyone replies to my advice I get rude responses. I doubt you would help someone that spat in your face.

I've seen plenty that aren't using sprint. Is it a level 14 ability now for F2P? If so that sucks for everyone else.

If you meet another premade the warzone will at least be somewhat fun.

If you solo queue you will most likely end up with 7 bads. I know they suck when my combat medic out damage every single one of my team with 120k damage while I also get some 230k healing. When they also expect the healer to charge in first everywhere and will wait for you to do so I just see no hope for lowbie PvP.

Doing lowbie PvP now is just as boring as doing space missions. Is there any point in suffering in lowbie PvP except for maybe trying to keep valor level locked? With 1.6 is around the corner getting decent gear for 50 PvP will be quite fast.
then dont do lowbie pvp? or would you like someone to hand you a baby bottle after you QQ all over the pvp forum?

i've done lowbie pvp since f2p and it's the same as it ever was. OP, you just want to have an EXCUSE so you dont have to admit you suck at pvp

I can't even see how you didn't notice that either your own team sucks beyond imagination or that your opposition may be the worst group of PvPers you ever met. The average skill level is unbelievably bad. It might be a server thing since ToFN lowbie PvP is horrible right now. My guess is that you enjoy the new low skill level PvP so you can shine in no effort death matches.

I agree. How dare these new players not intricate knowledge of the game and group strategy/communication.
