I dont get how drastically player skill changes in this gap.
Do any RVR(on Abhorash at least) 1-11 and Order will dominate Destruction, just smash them into the ground. 500-50 Scenario wins, constant domination in new emskrank...
...but as soon as you hit Troll Country/Ostland its like they all become brainless idiots. I have NEVER been in a winning tier 2 scenario, as a matter of fact I have lost several by 500-single digits... Even 500-3 in one game.
Then play world RvR and slaughter is what you will get. Constantly being pushed back with the only advances coming when some destruction players get bored and move on.
Now I have two explanations for this.
1st, Its Beta and the skilled players dont want to spend their time playing characters who will get wiped.
2nd, The lack of Tanks cripples Order when it comes to making advances. They just dont have the muscle to push into the Destruction lines without adequate tank support, of which you will find perhaps 2 in a large fight compared to 8-10 destruction tanks. Combine that with the fact that in the early zones the classes are not mixed well and later on that is not an issue.
My guess is that its mostly the 2nd with a little of the first.
