Let's see.

1. You're getting better with practice, level and gear.
2. The F2P players are hitting WZ's and don't know their heads from their...you know.
3. Both 1 & 2.

Oh, and your a sniper so you can stun and knockback at will, stay in one place and 2 shot people.

In your 20's you finally start getting some skills that boost what you can do. By the 40s you feel like a dynamic player that regularly dominates the board and you get pissed at the noobs to lose the game by not playing to objectives.

Then you hit 50.
And you realize your skill isn't as great as you think and for the first time everybody's gear isn't buffed to the same level.

Right. People don't age either.

well...in DCUO; Age Of Conan , GW2 you can REALLY get better. Here too actually but here is this Gear>Skill problem.
but thats also alright if you want that kind of progression.
I play all those games. I LOVE the combat from DCUO , there is no better than that Imho, mouse clicks and holds for weaps + a few slots for powers/skills + active blocking, dodging anti cc and good power management. also some gear progression. Age of Conan gave me carpal tunnel, its combat is great too, but after 1.5 is more gear oriented; still VERY skill based. GW2 is the perfect blend of eeverything above , and swtor is traditional.
I play Swtor cause i like to win **** that makes me op sometimes lol; when i wanna relax.
So i sub here and play the others for free. its healthy.

F2P's can only do 3 WZ's a week, they are inconsequential in PVP.
