I would *love* to see you take the time you spent writing this guide on a write up of the things Bioware have done wrong with warzone class balancing. That would have been time well spent -- not "you need to fail over and over in order to suceed". That's just tripe.
"This is not the thread you're looking for. You can go about your business. Move along."

If you don't want a guide for people new to pvp, why did you read this? This is actually good info for people not 'expert' (ahem) in other MMO PVP. And please, tell us all what better things we can do with our time, in order to better serve YOU.

Side note: One nearly always learns more from failure than from success. You will find that 'losing' does not make one a 'loser'. If you learn why these 2 things are important, you may go far.

City of Heroes was my only other MMO. RIP, thanks to corporate stupidity.
Maybe we can build a COMMUNITY on the forums and in the game.

Good luck finding one with a vocabulary that extends further than "L2P Nubtard" and various other insults.
All the PvPers I have asked for help have been less than forthcoming with advice and some actually gave me deliberately bad advice. (possibly so I would be an easier target in future.)

  • going commando == win
  • rolling commando == fail

This guide is outdated now and needs to be updated or unpinned.

Hey folks, I've been away from the game a long while but now I'm back! I must admit that I'm a bit taken back by all the jerk bags that have commented on this thread for no other reason than to troll some lame out dated comment about how cool they are but then again, this is the internet, lol.

That said, a lot has changed since last I played and much of the original thread is no longer valid. I'm writing to you all that a rehaul is coming and a brand new pvp guide is on the way. Ignore the haters and look out for the next edition of How to Become a Contender coming soon!
