Hello Imperian! I apologize if this post sounds whiny--it's totally not my intention! English isn't my first language and my word choice is not always as on-point as I'd like.
I played very briefly (maybe for a month or two?) about a year ago, but got a bit discouraged by the dynamics of PvP combat and decided to stop playing. This game is really cool, though, and I'd like to come back. I just had a quick question or two about the PvP scene.
First of all, has newbie participation increased? I realize the irony here, considering that if noobs (like me!) keep getting discouraged and throwing the towel early, noob participation won't ever get better. Has it increased though? Are there new/clueless/derpy people involved in the PvP scene now, or is it mostly just the pros still? If PvP has a wider spectrum of players participating, maybe I can find a niche where I belong and even stand a chance (and not just be pro fodder again).
