The ilvl gap between people in random BG and those who bring rated PvP gear is far too big. BG’s can still be fun if you meet someone with a similar ilvl as you but are completely ruined when the opposing team has a 4-5 man premade of eHeroes with 20-25 ilvl advantage over everyone else.
The very people who dont need the ilvl advantage are the ones who have it.
Random BG’s can go form a fun experience into a miserable one when you meet somone who is overgeared for the content and it becomes a cycle of Rez>Die>Rez>Die as they repeatedly hit their burst macro and kill you in 2 hits…or…you end up being farmed at the GY for the duration by a 272ilvl fury warrior with a pocket heal…
Its not a question of being killed or not. Its a question of just been able to participate. I dont mind at all if I end up haviing a 1v1 in a bg with someone better than me, it lasts maybe 20-30 seconds and ultimately they win. I enjoy the fight all the same, win or lose.
If i die then at least i was able to participate in the fight and somtimes i might get lucky and win. But as things stand people in full Honor gear (that which is obtainable in THAT content) end up outgeared by 20+ ilvls and are killed in 2-3 hist repeatedly without any chance of participating.
Full honor gear to full conquest gear should be no more than a 10-12 ilvl gap.
