    You're dumber than I thought you were if you actually believe there are hundreds of thousands of active twinks.

    that 5.5 million number is over 5 years old. The most recent number is something like 1.7 million, per the API leak in october of last year.

    Apply your absolutely bullshit figure of 5% to that and tell me how many hundreds of thousands of twinks there are.

    That API leak was unaccurate for a number of reasons

    I'd just like to point out that the separating twinks from non twinks (xp off xp on) doesnt change anything because the main issue was not Ilvl and gear difference but the actual skill it self. Yes twinks did more damage but in 99% of scenarios twinks would win because they're better compared to a casual pve player who demands his justice in pvp. In more than 400 xp off arena skirmishes I've played at lvl 70 I don't remember a single enemy fake casting or actually using interrupt, and this would be just the basics of pvp skill. Going by that logic people who are rated over 2.2k or were ever rated high should just be banned from queueing pvp starting at lvl 10 up untill 120 because thats what the issue is. Just to confirm this I've made a new character and as of lvl 60 just in heirloom I still haven't lost a single skirmish even when fighting on "fair grounds"

    It keeps the ones with "more skill" away from the ones without it, at a particular level. At equal skill, gear wins.

    Im at a point where I just don't want to give blizz any more money at all. Sure, classic was on the menu when it was available with my sub, which I paid for due to twinking… now that they've handled this SO god awful, why would I pay them "just" for classic?

    And thats exactly what for we have matchmaking but instead of healing the infected wound they went for early amputation. They could of done some improvements to the matchmaking system or made a completely new one but I guess with all the employees that got fired in Activision-Blizzard theres nobody to do that

    You mean... improve the game? Nah. This is Blizz we're talking about. Amputation is their new motto.

    It's either that or players stop being bad. Sadly they've become casuals them selves so its no suprise they're trying to please the casuals instead of saying git gud or l2p. Imagine going to a football match without any equippment like boots or shinguards and then complaining that its not fair how the enemy team is more equipped and prepared.

    Well, I never portrayed myself as this "voice" you all refer me as. I even said "my perspective" and "contraction opinion" multiple times. You (much like everyone else) are just too stupid to understand that & interpret things with the slightest of thought.
    Sorry for introducing myself to a different branch of forums by mentioning my relevance within twinking. I didnt expect it to cause randoms to get so triggered lol. I guess that's just what happens when someone actually shares their unpopular opinions though?

    but you did actually portray yourself as "the voice". But, you also made it seem like you'd stay around and try make it work when we were split up again... So who knows what to think?

    With all your big talk I thought you'd at least make it a week. Guess I was wrong... Tell me, it's a new feeling for me... Does being wrong always feel like this?

    "I consider myself a very credible & relevant voice for the XPOFF community"

    This is what I said. I have over 10 years of experience in twinking, with a wealth of information and knowledge regarding our playstyle. I have done more than enough for our community and have every reason to see myself as a relevant & credible source.
    For you to take that and interpret it into me acting like the sheriff of twinking is beyond me. I was simply introducing myself to an unfamiliar community, while trying to show them how passionate and serious I am about twinking. This is all getting repetitive. If I was trying to portray myself as our favor, there wouldn't have been an unpopular opinion shared.

    If you must know, I've been unsubscribed for over a month now. Competitive games are what I enjoy: With 59 not being interested, and 39 blacklisting me, there was no reason for me to continue paying for a product that I have 0 interest in. I was late to the party and had to be caught up with these changes. You dont know as much as you think

    We're all wrong, you're right. Everyone is telling you what you came over as. Intended or not.

    Many of us as many more years experience than you. We told you how things would go, not only did you tell us we were wrong but you took the piss. Stop being so pedantic and maybe you won't get blacklisted.

    But I think the general consensus is it's like holding your kid back a few grades so he's bigger for peewee football.

    I didn't... but the original email account is gone. So it's already taken. ;)

    and the point was, should any parent really be proud if their 22 year old son is doing well in JV football?
