    19 twinking in wsg is back...kinda

    "Focused Assault debuff is now applied to flag carriers once both team’s flags have been picked up"

    You sit with a healer and the flag in your base killing all intruders and having fun. As long as you defend your own flag you won't get the Focused Assault debuff making it possible to just steamroll newbies in your base for 25 minutes without having to worry about being one-shot.

    Some might like this change. Cheers =)

    It still starts stacking on you at the normal amount of time.

    Twinking is like going back to school when you are 30, just to be smarter than the other kids.

    A rogue with full boa and nightstalker talent will kill you straight from stealth. It won't be possible to do.

    I am trying to figure out why we are attempting to speed up a 25 minute BG. If your Adhd is so bad you can not stand to be in a bg that potentially lasts 25 minutes, maybe it is not the game for you.

    Twinking was only fun for the people who twinked. A very small percentage of players.

    Therefore, a majority of players were not having fun.

    Blizzard solved the problem by putting XP in BGs and allowing XP-off players to have their own BGs.

    Twinks cried out and protested, "We don't want to roll over levelers, we just want a challenge." Well, they gave you what you wanted, and your XP-off BGs are a testament to your playstyle. DEAD. If twinking was anywhere near popular, you'd get games. You don't. It's laughable.

    Keep crying. I love the twink tears and putting XP in leveling BGs was the best thing Blizz ever did.

    Once the twinks couldn't roll over levelers anymore, the whole "fad" died out. GG.

    This is so true.

    Worst is they act like they are somehow awesome but in reality its like putting a 90 vs an 85.

    LMAO - From your post you obviously got bitch slapped by a twink or two.

    FYI - Twinking isnt dead. There's a good sized community of Twinks out there, the brackets have changed, that's all.

    Are you really acting cocky and superior over twinking? There is no challenge in it. We all hated facing twinks. It was just another way for someone to steamroll people without a chance, like bringing a firearm to a swordfight.
    He's completely right. Try to post constructively instead of just insulting people. It really just shows your own ignorance.

    I used to have a 19 twink Ret Paladin in like TBC - it was fun for a few games - I was a rogue-twink-counter at the time: they couldn't quite one-shot me, and I could heal to full instantly - and I'd win if they tried to go toe-to-toe.

    It was fun making the rogue twinks cry, even the ones on my own team were complaining out of empathy. I think she played a total of like 10 battles in her life. Twinking is boring, even counter-twinking - which is probably impossible with the current state of 19 rogues.

    Yeah, I had a hunter twink for the 19 bracket a while ago but it was boring. There is no depth to the gameplay and it just loses anything of interest after a few games. The research and gearing was honestly more fun than the actual play.

    Now, twinking in the higher brackets I do think is fun. I would make a twink in the bracket where Cata gear is available at a low level, that I could see being fun. Lots of skills/abilities and interesting routes to get gear. Unfortunately in order for any twinking to actually be fun and work the baseline resilience would have to change from the default 40%. Even in some heirlooms and leveling gear, people can kill far to fast at low levels.
