I mean are they going to add the 50 to 54 to the pre-50 Q or is it going to be 50-55 in the same Q?

Most likely 50-55, because a lot of people may not buy the expansion, so they would be punishing those who bought the expansion because there may not be a lot of people who will play 55 warzones.

They said they will work on new better matchmaking system too so maybe it will not be that bad.

if it's 50-55 I'd imagine they'd buff everyone up to 55 stats like they do with pre50. Sure there'd be a gear gap but it wouldn't be all that bad. The real difference will come in, on how (if) the skill trees are reworked and what abilitys are added.

They've said they are going to eventually equalize expertise regardless of the pvp set you are wearing. That is most likely going to happen when the expansion comes out or shortly before it. So 50-55 might not be too bad, but still I'd prefer they didn't raise the level cap. Not a fan of constantly leveling up alts to the new cap every time they decide to raise it.

Yeah being a fresh 50 really shouldn't suck any worse than it does now, if you are bolstered up to 55. Just like now the only real difference is gear, and you should still be able to grind WH by 53...

That is definitely the glass half full version. The realist version is: the vast majority of the things they say do not happen.
