actually, your definition of "twink" is incorrect.
A Twink is a relativly low level character that get geared up in top-level gear, ie stuff that "normal" characters would never have, because it is an Alt of some level 70 that has thousands of gold and doesn't mind sending 2-300 of that to his alt.
So the level 20 guys is fully geared in blue armor, each piece costing on AH 10-30 gold. Normal chars rarely have that kind of gold.
I honestly do not mind that much. Yes, it is "unfair" in the sense that a normal guy will not have the same gear, but is it so important? The guy has got the money somewhere and there isn't really much you can do to avoid him using that money. At least level-limited items make sure you do not see level 40s in super tier 4 epics....

Actually Twinks in WOW are not that bad (and yes I have a few).. Go play a game like Anarchy Online and come back to me and talk about 'Twinks'.
When a level 20 character can SOLO a instance like say the Van Cleef Dungeon (havent played in a while if that is how you say it) then you have a problem.. Making a level 20 in AO that could solo a instance Dungeon was not really that hard, in WOW it is impossible.

Originally posted by DuraheLL They are not doing anything wrong. How can "maxing out" your char be wrong when it's all the game is about anyway? If you dont like it just go ahead and farm more!!
Blizzard recently announced that they will be adding a Battlegrounds "Matching" System to group twinks with twinks and normal players with other normal players, to make the Battlegrounds more fair for new players, but not limit older players in their ability to twink. It won't be perfect, of course, but it should significantly improve your chances of enjoying your Battlegrounds matches.
Link to the report from Curse-Gaming.
In any case, the battleground matching system is currently still on target for release with the next major content patch. The system is intended to match players by gear and organization, and while it's not going to perfectly match all teams so that you'll never see a twink or premade again, it should work towards separating players fairly well.

Originally posted by Antipathy Can't see a gear matching system working. As well as the equipment in bags issue, here are a couple of other problems:i) Queue times for battlegrounds will increase. What if there are 4 twinks and 8 normal characters waiting to play WSG? No game can start. People will complain lots.ii) Someone will take the time to figure out the scoring algorithm Blizzard is using and word will pass quickly round to other players. You will start seeing characters optimised to be as powerful as possible without being officially labelled as "twinks".Remember - just because Blizzard says something is going to happen doesn't mean it actually will.
Ifind the complete opposition of your last sentence and your signature FF character to be very ironic.
1) queue times? what queue times? with the battlegroups set up, i have not been in a queue for more than couple seconds.. so it might improve to a few seconds... few minutes? still, it is a honest price to pay for a as fair setup as you can get, i think
2) might be. But again, this is a complete pessimistic view of the thing, weren't you supposed to be the optimistic dude here? have some faith and let's check this out when it actually get released instead of spelling doom and gloom before it is even implemented.

Though I no longer play the game, I do hope this comes reality. Twinks completely ruin low level bgs for new players.
Originally posted by gestalt11 I think they are a symptom of inherent design flaws.
I think Twinks are a nice way to pass the time between raids! I played a lvl 60 hunter for a year but never had fun like when i play my lvl 19 twink hunter in pvp! It's fun and simple, require a bit of patience to get all the best gears and enchants but then its only fun! The players that think it's unfair are those that are doing pvp along their lvling. All Twink pvpers would accord to say that those people are just complaining of beiing raped and owned by us twink!!
