Soapbox? lol It's what the forums are, man. Use it! Embrace it! Love it!
If anybody has ideas on how to try and teach people how to PvP without the regular PvPers steamrolling everything, that'd actually be kind of sweet. I thought about doing this but there are so many setbacks and ways it could be easily ruined. Maybe if more people were taught how to PvP they wouldn't be so scared to. I know I was when I first started. I knew nothing, thought I could take on the world and got HIGHLY discouraged when I felt I couldn't compete. Like, I completely hated PvP and avoided it like the plague.
Some of my guildies kind of took me under their wing and showed me how to play the game, how to do PvP, explained to me about linking and stats. And now look at me! I'm still a nubby cakes!!! Wait... no... I mean I'm a lot better off than when I started! (Yeah, that sounds right.)
I guess the only thing we as players can do is suggest they ask their guild for guidance to become better. It's what a guild is supposed to be for. Maybe if you are big and bad and can hold off an entire raid, offer up some advice. (After all, you're top dog, even if you're the only one that thinks it. Who can possibly beat you?)
