As far as I can tell, when it comes down to winning PvP this is generally the order of importance.
Which saddens me, because this obviously isn't a skill based game until everyone has reached endgame.
Anyone care to add anything, or is this the general consensus?
I have no qualms with this game play wise, I still attack red names who are 9 levels higher than me.
I know it's hard to see the forest for the trees but this game's PvP doesn't truly balance out until level 58. Until that time, yeah the level scaling is rather harsh.
It sure does, playing my priest someone came running up to me 5 levels higher. Think it was a sorc cause I was stunned and they one shot me. Ran up and said 'DAM" lol goes by the name of frostitute lol
Yea they PvP never balances out in early levels and so people of a higher level will have an advantage, but that doesn't mean you can't beat them if you are more skilled. I have killed plenty of people 1-3 levels higher than me, anymore than that and of course it will be very difficult cause, well, they have more skills and 4 more glyph points than you. So all in all, level doesn't matter since everyone will be the same level by the time the game is balanced anyways.
You do have people that do not know how to use a KB/M at all. Those are the people that will PK. So, yes, you will have PvP but then you also have people that have NO skills with their KB/M and will lose to someone with better skills (again, I am talking KB/M, not in-game.) Same goes the other way around, if you are EXCELLENT with your devices and bindings, then you may have a shot at someone 2-3 levels above you, as stated above. All things equal (gear, level, etc...) it will always come down to which player knows their toon better and can use their PC better. That is real PvP. It may even get to a point where you can fend off 2 people (same gear, level, etc...) If you have SUPERIOR KB/M skills, but that is where it lies, IMO.
I beat a 32 berserker last night on my 26 slayer. Guy jumped me out by the kumas.
Wasn't even close.
this is the same as playing Counter Strike and complaining about the lack of level.
