I like the what they are trying to do with PvP but it could really use some adjustments. Here's my reactions to everything:

-Reach level 30. Yay! Lets check this out!
-Wait 45 minutes. Queue pops!
-Take a look around me. Man these people look fancy.
-Examine their gear. Hmmm all level 50.
-Get into the fight. Die.
-Find out that if you are going to queue for level 30 fights. You should reach level 50 first.
-Cry. But keep going. After all who are they to be level 50 telling me I'm a noob for entering a fight at level 30 in a level 30 match?!? They could've at least queued for the level 40 matches!
-After 3 days of 45 minute queues. Decided to hang it up but check in a while. Finally reached rank 2!

On the same scope, PvP is not for everyone. Just because others find PvE boring does not mean everyone does. Generalization sucks.

First of all the pvp sucks for casters. Melee can hit you through walls, but you cant heal through walls. It takes way to frickin long to cast a spell because guess what, it gets interrupted. Dont be a caster in pvp.

Just leveling all my classes to 50 or as high as I can before pvp comes out that way I can play the OP Job/Class...because lets face it there is no way it will be balanced upon its release.
