    I got some game time for the holidays, haven't logged on for years, what happened to the level 19 twinks? My now level 9 can't use group finder for BGs. Does this mean people have had to abandon their 19s?

    I couldn't find a similar thread.

    everyone’s level was “squished”. Unfortunately, there is little to do at level 9 without access to bgs and dungeons. Many of us have either:
    1. Decided to keep their 19s at level 9. Effectively turning them into “trophy toons”

    2. Level back to 19. You’ll have a few new spells and abilities, but you are again the highest level in the lowest level range for battlegrounds. Positive changes include the ability to quest in a very large amount of zones/expansions, new gear obviously, and a plethora of new dungeons. Unfortunately, for now, there is not a large community on US to get WSGs to pop. Hopefully blizz goes back and combines xpon and xpoff, and/or later in the expansion when people are tired of their mains they come back to 19s.

    3. level to 20. This is still free to play, allowing veteran accounts without gametime to still queue bgs at level 20 with xp-on players. The only way to still twink and bg basically. I don’t play this bracket so I’ll default to someone else on activity.

    Thanks a lot for the update. That's brutal. Though some new accessibility is nice. Let's hope xpon/xpoff are merged in the future indeed.
