Being ganked by 50's on a PvP server.

Are there any measures set now to prevent the people who already got in that RUSHED to 50 who will then be bored out of their minds, who WILL come into the lower level zones and just grief everyone?

This staggered release probably looked good on paper but what is really going to happen is what I mentioned. Allowing these gaps in player invites is going to wreak havoc on people who don't get in for several days.

People who got in 4 hours ago, I'm sure many of them are rushing to stay ahead of the curve and if they knew what they were doing and are skipping through dialog are in their mid/high teens by now. An entire day from now they will be 30 and SO ON. They are going to end up 50, bored and come into the lower SHARED zones and grief people (I would).

I am guessing there is nothing to prevent this but I'm sure you can see the problem.

I will just take my beatings from the bored 50's when I am able to play and eventually get to 50 as well but was that even considered at all?

No. If you don't want to risk being violated by higher levels while leveling, go play on a PvE server.

Don't roll on a pvp server? You will get ganked at some point regardless what level you are.

Nope.

PvP server = PvP

If you don't want to deal with a PvP environment then there are plenty of PvE servers available for you. I'm not being condescending, so please don't take that the wrong way. I'm simply stating facts. It has been previously stated by the devs that aside from town guards, you are on your own.

There is always gonna be people that rush to highest level in any game. I imagine they will log off and sleep giving you like 6 hours to level... good luck.

That's sort of the point of a PvP server.

Remember, a PvP server is not the be all end all of PvP options. There's just as much PvP on a PvE server, it's just more organized and strategic.

PvP servers are like a FFA shooter.

PvE servers are more like Team Death Match.

I love PvP, but I roll on PvE servers because I don't like the chaos of a PvP server. I prefer ordered, structured, strategic PvP because I like that feeling of a real battle, not some insane murder party.

you sound like a PvE server type... just try that out.

While it's certainly possible some hardcore people will hit 50 in a short amount of time, I do have to point out that 1-30 in a day is unlikely and that leveling does slow down at 30.

To your point, it's the risk you take when rolling on a PvP server, you should be safe until your mid 20s so just keep plugging away. Do what I do, level 2 toons at one time, if I start getting ganked and camped, I log onto my other toon and level it for a bit then go back to the main when I think the gankers have moved along.
