Why is there no PvP level range limits?

It's in my opinion, the worst part about this game. 

 

Why should a 40+ be allowed to come into a level 20-26 zone? It's a huge buzzkill and is the only thing that made me stop playing this game. I really wish they would implement something similar to Warhammers zone system. At least people would then have a fighting chance.

I spent the majority of my time running back to my questing areas after being 1 shotted by a 40+ in Asee-Teph. Grrrr, I want to love this game, but I cannot.

    I heard in the next patch coming that there will be a way for low level players to 1 hit KO high level players to help prevent ganking. It's coming out later this year I heard. Can't wait! Lots more PvP content!

     Depends on their demographic. There are games like that. Personally If I'm going to play a pvp game then I want a more open pvp world where one is spurred on to better oneself because you don't want to fall behind.

    This is not a bad thing. It's a different thing and not to everyone's taste. Now, if they thought they were going to grab the "everyone" demographic, then no, it wasn't the way to go.

     

    Edit, I've always thought that low level players should have a way to one shot a higher lvl player. Like a one in 4 chance to use a special skill that can only be used once but if they get that 1 in 4 it decimates them.

    I agree with you.  Just started this game and I didn't know about this.  I may not bother then.  Ganking is downright pathetic.  No need to say IMHU, because, it IS pathetic.  No challege pvp = epic fail.

    There are PvP range limits if you're unflagged. If you're running around flagged then you're of course asking for it. Warbanners only allow a player to attack an unflagged player within 3 levels of their level. There's also a new item you can buy with in game gold that will allow a player no higher then level 29 to instakill a higher level player that is flagged in AT.

    Waiting for Guild Wars 2, and maybe SWTOR until that time...
