what is this thing you are all talking about?
instant leveling for pvp??? is this a ptr-only thing?
I'm a bit lost in this matter
A. Level through the game in PvE like normal
B. Go straight to max level competitive pvp with your character and automatically gain all skills abilities and armor. (However they are taken away when you return to pve content)
C. Go straight to casual pvp where your level and gear from pve stay in tact and the battles are huge and made to be fun, not competitive. You can level up entirely in this mode.

See you guys.
as far as WvWvW goes it shouldn't break immersion you go in as your character with your skills and gear. Just get bumped up in level and base stats.
The whole catch of this game is you can do pretty much whatever you want without having silly restrictions. So PvP at lvl 1 makes perfect sense. Those people will miss quite a bit of the game if they do straight PvP but whatevs
If you feel there is more immersion in levelling to max level before PVPing you are free to do that. For people who just want to PVP and have nothing to do with PVE, they have that option also though. I fail to see how giving that option to those people is in any way taking away from your option to be more immersed and level first.
I should note that you're not required to be level 1 to join PVP.
If you feel the experience is needed, simply don't que until you're max level.
Plus, this is Guild Wars. One of the most successful features of it was because of the PVP. If you don't like the idea, the game isn't for you.
The most important thing to realize is, no matter what you experience you are never alone; no matter what you are struggling through, there is always someone who is more unfortunate.

this decision is not new and it was perfectly fine in GW1
in fact pvp only characters were a wonderful addition if you wanted to pvp
