Due to the way PVE is set up, 1 level makes a HUGE difference between winning or not winning. Not only does a level make a difference, but the game is extremely gear based. It's not like Vanilla WoW if you played (You may be a XPac junkie that didn't play vanilla) where PvP was in fact skill based, and only buffered by gear, not dependent.
This game is amazing.
But the PvP is unbelievably garbage.
Most of this is completely accurate, with the exception of the game being called "amazing" with half of its entire content base being completely terrible. The game WOULD be amazing, if the PvP were:
A: Segregated to remove massive level disparities
B: Balanced so that a couple statpoints and 1 level didn't make such a world of difference
C: Not forced upon players in its currently imbalanced state
D: Toned down massively in the Crowd Control department (like what Warhammer did)
E: All of the above.
Until one or all of these things happen, and FOD is removed or reduced in PvP, the PvP is going to be freaking terrible, like it is now. I like their idea of world PvP, that's always been my favorite kind - but even a fanboy cannot, with any sort of supporting evidence, deny that it is completely imbalanced and bad right now.
