    Have you actually brought your concerns with the lack of structure in these bracket to to other mods or admins? Keep in mind how busy some of us have been,Why don't you try and become a moderator? You can champion your bracket without whining constantly on the forums because someone stated their opinion that you disagree with.

    ;) I'm glad you phrased your wording as you did. Whining in your eyes is fighting for 29s and 39s to get what is fair and what they deserve in my eyes. Last I recalled our conversation on the same topic ended up with you saying that you won't participate in 39s therefore there is no need to indulge in further conversation.

    I have also offered myself or support anyone who wanted to be a MOD of said brackets as seen here.
    I am not attacking you personally bro, I am attacking the system, that has managed to fall out of the graces of the majority of the community. If there is a way for me to further discuss the situation or volunteer to be a moderator, please enlighten me!

    From my PoV i see the exact opposite of a fall from grace. Adding moderators is something that is born of necessity, in the past a post has been made asking for applications, at this point i'd say your best bet is to put together your own version of an application, and send it to myrm explaining why it is necessary for more moderators as well (he won't just take my word for it =P). In the mean time I will bring your concerns to the rest of the staff, and see what they think about more bracket managers as well.

    Actually, hang on here fellas. The function of a moderator is to keep the site running and to resolve issues that deal with the website and the forums themselves. Moderators have nothing to do with brackets. [MENTION=26098]paynefull[/MENTION] I think you are conflating Conq's role as a moderator on the forum with Conq's participation as a player in a bracket. Yes it is true that many of the staff happen to also play 19s, but that was true even before Myrm bought the site. All we moderators do is answer reports, move and manage threads, and generally try to keep the ship together. If you want support in a particular bracket, then you want a bracket manager. That is a position that Myrm re-opened up so that there is someone from a bracket--whatever bracket--who has a few tools at their disposal to help organize things for the bracket. It's true that as of this moment [MENTION=5141]Myrm[/MENTION] has not specified exactly what duties and tools the bracket managers will have, but that is something that I've been keeping on his radar (like with this post and mention). He's a busy guy though, there are a LOT of back-end issues that still need to be resolved, so please have a little patience. And don't get too worked up about what some of the staff do in their "off-time" as players, and participants in their bracket.

    Great news. Now, can you please do what the previous 2 owners wouldn't do for me?

    Delete my account and all posts associated with it. Thanks.

    I would be honored to be a TI mod. If I were to be lucky enough to be chosen it is my pledge to get rid of the worst of TIs trolls.

    It's not really clear that Legion will totally eliminate all use for gear in PvP, as far as I've heard from GM's it might only change what's BiS. I've done a lot of reading up on this and it looks like it's going to affect higher levels more than lower levels, they've said that PvP gear won't be available but there will still be some PvE gear that'll give an advantage as well as your class weapon itself being upgraded by killing raid bosses. So what I think this means is if the season's PvP scaling is to 850 ilvl at 110, and top end raiding gear is 855 ilvl there will be the minor advantage like there is now. I don't see why this would be any different at low level with stuff like engineering goggles at 29 with 43 ilvl when the bracket's scaling is only to 34ilvl, which is effectively having gear above the bracket's level. Does that make sense? The best in slot items for each bracket might just change like they did with the introduction of PvP scaling (5.4.3 was it?) so don't get all your panties in a knot and start waving your armageddon signs outside of Blizzard HQ just yet. Plus you'll always have the new honor talents to grind for if you want that extra advantage over the other noobs in the bracket who don't have them, assuming they'll be available at all levels.

    My point is all these people claiming legion will kill twinking don't know first-hand what the changes to PvP will be, or to what extent. There's still some hope.

    P.S. Regardless of what Legion will do to twinks / gearing we still have a much bigger issue on our hands, these Jaja's are getting out of hand with their lack of knowledge / skill in BG's and we need to put a stop to it. #VoteToKickGallywix

    I think scaling was 5.2. I starting playing level P2P 20's then since they were more powerful. Everyone thought I was nuts.

    Yes, tough to say what Legion will bring. Expacs are always tough to predict. We probably won't know until after the 7.0 PTR gets released. And even then, things will change.
    We will get some more information during/after Blizzcon. Which is coming up soon.

    /cheers

    We can always get everyone to bitch and complain about low level pvp scaling for twinking, blizzard responds well to public outcry.
