    So you're on retail? Retail is dead for twinking besides vet level 20s

    Hi

    xp-off and xp-on characters now have separate ques. This killed 29s (and most other brackets) unless you schedule specific games with people.

    most 29s seemed to have moved to classic or rerolled 20s

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is retail? And what does "moved to classic" mean? I guess... what do I have to do to play bg's with my 10 year old lvl 29 twink?

    find at least 9 other 29s who would like to schedule wargames or a handful of other 29s who might want to play arenas against you

    Good luck

    A level 20? I don't get the significance of that level. Back in my day that was the weakest POS to enter a BG

    due to the fact that xp-off and xp-on toons are separated into different BGs, 29s didnt have the population to survive on their own. They died.

    20s, however, are level capped because theyre on free accounts, not because their XP is turned off. So they still que into regular games. So people play 20s.

    Thanks for the explanation. You're telling me there isn't a single realm that has atleast a few organized ques a week?

    turns out that when they couldnt farm F2Ps anymore, 29s disappeared.

    Shocker.

    I remember days when both sides had all lvl 29 twinks minus 1 or so. Then we all had to move to one server because of the XP crap, but we still had games. I guess I'll delete my account if you say there isn't even 1 place 29's pop
