There are some games though, where you're over 400k and the next guy on your team is like 70k and you can't help but ask why these people won't stop queuing and wasting everyone's time. I'm sorry but in 1.7, 70k was embarassing, in 2.0 its like afking. Maybe just using basic attack? I don't even know *HOW* you get 70k as a DPS spec.

Will calling them badides make them better? Probably not, but if you're that awful please stop queuing and go try a practice dummy or train up the rest of the skills your class has or pick an advanced spec or try using a weapon or figure out what other problem you're having.

Yeah there are games I do like more damage than the next top 3 guys put together and I'm not even sure how that's possible even accounting for the fact people are quitting left and right. But I don't think calling them is the answer. We need matchmaking and people who are bad should play other players who are bad and then the problem is solved.

Bravo on the satire point. But to the others:

Low level pvp is for those who have no clue what they are doing, but hell, at least they had the decency to learn before hitting level cap unlike many. I wish we had some form of tutorial match for them for each WZ. (I know having to explain AH to them...their experience with the zone was lackluster and didn't care for it at all)

you give em a few levels, group up with some that seem to perform better...and boom rockin' low bracket in time to hit 30. by all means teach instead of yell, kinda that teach a man to fish proverb....

Some people just love to try bring others down from behind their keyboards. I'd love to see them do the same when standing in front of the other guy, physically.

9 times out of 10 when I see people screaming abuse at the rest of the team they tend to come near bottom of the leaderboard or they leave. They generally have done crap all to contribute to the team so I write off most people immediately when they decide to tell everyone else how much they suck.

So despite I don't think you are actually being serious... this situation is rare, in fact I don't think I have once had to decide whether to vote an abusive player MVP or not.

Topping damage means nothing.
Not to be big headed, but I often top damage purely because I've been PvPing for a while now and I know what to do. I don't expect any MvP votes for it. I only award my MvP vote to someone i've seen playing well. What I look for when awarding my MvP vote isn't shown on a scoreboard.

Right now, Sorcerer DPS should ALWAYS finish top on damage. One tree has huge burst and the other has consistent 1k+ damage ticks all the time. That being said though, having the best DPS doesn't win you warzones alone.
