Warzones
•Level 50 players now participate in their own Warzone bracket and will not be matched with lower-level players.


This is something that has been greatly anticipated and will be well recieved by those in the community who PvP. Well, at least by most. As an active level 50 PvPer, it is somewhat agrivating to pop into a Warzone only to find that you are the only level 50 on your team, and the other team is well stacked. So the majority of the level 50s will probably appreciate this addition. I'm sure that some will be sad that the days of stunning and destroying the wide eyed level 12s fresh off of their starter world have now come to a close (at least in warzones) but overall it should a positive change. Hell, I know that I will be PvPing on my alts more now that the field will be a bit more level.

I am SUPER excited about trying this new Flashpoint!

I wonder how balanced it'll actually end up being. I mean, it'd be good to have folks of the same level playing each other, though another thing to consider is that some folks will have PvP gear and other folks who play more casually will have regular PvE gear... even though we'd both be the same level, the PvP gear folks still have the huge advantage.

oh no doubt, there is always going to be imbalances. At this point, this early on in the game, you have to be a seriously dedicated PvPer to have the good gear. There are people who have full Champion PvP suits already, and that addition of the Expertise stat makes a difference in PvP. I have always felt that the PvP gear was a bit Too good. Simply because trying to find or piece together through mods a suit of armor that is better then the PvP gear is fairly hard. And some stats (like the expertise stat) are only found in PvP rewards. (dont quote me on that, im not too familiar with the crafting system as of yet)

But the bottom line is, a level 50 in PvE gear is going to stand a much better chance against these serious PvPers then a level 30 in quest reward armor.

Something i am going to be interested in watching is the lower level bracket. the players who are 40-49 are going to have a serious edge over the rest of the pack, and their main challenges have just been removed... Of course once they cross into the 50 bracket they are going to have to adjust. Quickly.
