Back before I began this website, I was really active in the 10-19 PvP bracket. It’s not something I’ve discussed much on here over the years, but I was part of a 10 man team that was considered tops in the Vengeance battlegroup. We used to schedule premade Warsong Gulch matches with competitive horde guilds, and let me tell you…a few of those matches were the most epic PvP battles I’ve ever been a part of. I’ll talk more about this in a future post.
These days twinking is nowhere near the competitive and popular subculture that it once was. There was a time when my 19 hunter was more or less my main. Crazy, right?! Not if you were into it.
Being a a competitive twink means you’re always striving to have the best gear imaginable. This is part of what made twinking so fun back in the day. There were no heirloom items, and properly optimizing your character for competitive play took some serious work, but gearing your twink was fun and rewarding.
