That said, a lot has changed since last I played and much of the original thread is no longer valid.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!
Awesome! I look forward to it. Thank you so much.

Hey, don't give up on it! If the guild you joined isn't doing it for you, go into general chat on the fleet and say something like "LF Guild who can help a new player learn how to PvP better." Ignore the first 5 idiots who respond saying "go home n00b" or whatever nonsense they come out with, and see if any guilds actually respond to you. Someone looking to learn makes for a promising new member. In terms of players trashing you for not being good, that's what the "ignore" feature is for. The majority of players, hey I'll even go further and say the majority of PvPers, are not jerks. It's just a vocal minority who get their kicks from putting others down.

Exactly. Finding the right guild is not easy but when yo do it makes everything more fun and learning faster.

You can hit me up on the Bastion if you are there. We are using teamspeak. If you haven't already, I would download and install the 3 free chat clients that most people use (ventrilo, teamspeak, mumble). For each chat client you can find a public server to test it with.

There are lots of rude people on the internet and a fair number of friendly people. Ignore the former and seek out the later if that is your preference.

Remember friends, knowledge is power
Also, play your level 50 more than an hour a week. I don't want to group with your lev 50 recruit geared jugg, then your level 50 recruit geared sniper, then your level 50 recruit geared sage. Gear a damn toon =P.

I would be a contender if I knew how people plant and defuse bombs in void star while being attacked and AOE's going off everywhere.

I see those people all the time and they seem to take PVP to the next level.

Is the recruit gear still available? I can't seem to find the vendor who sells it.
Meh.

no recruit gear has been eliminated. Warzone bolster + PvE gear replaces recruit gear.

partizan and conqueror are the current PvP gear sets.

Thank you for the quick response.

It's a part of the guide that could be updated (if the op is still about)
Meh.
