Ok, let me start by saying I am not a fan of low level twinking.  People who twink the heck out of themselves to gank and prey on lowbies to rack up fame and faction is bad.  PvP should need be all about items and twking.  I do agree something needs to be done, but this is totally the wrong approach to solving the problem!.

I have my combat experience disabled not because I love low level pvping, I do like to pvp yes and dedicate a decent ammount of my time to it.  But I like to do all the quests and see the games content.  Before when I played on Venekor I didn't have combat xp locked and I leveled up so quickly that I ended up missing out on 2/3rds of the games content, quests, and dungeons  because I leveled up so fast, so many zones became completely obsolete before I ever had a chance to see them.  I enjoy taking my time and level up through questing, seeing the game and the world, improving my AA's and items as I journey through the Tiers... 

So now because I also pvp I'm going to be forced to level up and miss out on my pve experience?  Even if I defend myself I am going to be forced to get experience if I defeat a player who attacks me?  I think that's a ridiculous shot gun approach to the problem of low level twinking, sure it takes care of that problem.  It also renders all pvp gear non-optainable and questers unable to quest and low level pvping will cease to exsist.

I'm a player who likes a balance of pve/pvp and I have found that on Nagafen, but now SOE is forcing the decision down my throat that I have to pick one or the other, pvp and miss out on half the games content or do as many quests as you can but avoid killing another player at all costs.

My entire guild was going to be built on the prospect of questing and pvp.  Not to sit around and low level twink, but to lock experience and activly engage in questing and progress while engaging in pvp along the way... If SOE goes thru with this latest plan then that COMPLETELY destroys the entire backbone of the plans for my guild, as well as the reasons I am currently playing Everquest 2.

I am not here to twink my guy out and prey on lowbies.  I am here to do as many quests as I can and see all the content I can see as I progress without combat experience, but with the danger and option of pvp existing without destroying that entirly.

All this is going to do is force players to pick one play style or another... We already have that choice, it's called playing on a pvp or a pve server, we shouldn't need to be forced to choose yet again when there is a good balance already.  I am enjoying my playstyle, that is why I am here.  if this idea goes forward without some type of stipulations or circumstances that would still allow you to pvp without gaining experience, well then my playstyle goes extinct, along with all my friends who were planning on joining my guild once it is up and running.

I guess it's better now to hammer the nails into the coffin before the guild has started, then to have have this happen after my friends already joined up and the guild was in it's infancy, that would have been the biggest [Removed for Content] off I've yet to see in the game...

I'll wait and see how this is implement, but if it's simply forced combat pvp experience, no if, and's or but's.  Then consider me and all my guildmates to looking for a different mmorpg.  Because our perfered playstyle and how we enjoy playing will no longer exsist in this game.  Sad but true but that's just how I feel.

Why would I continue playing a game where my perfered style of play no longer exsists?  

And the thing that really annoys me about this is that it was SOE who set the ground work to encourage low level locking and ganking.  Basicly the ONLY way your rewarded from pvp is by mass ganking, and if you ever want a pvp reward you have to lock low and mass gank as many as you can, otherwise you'll never see a pvp reward.  They encouraged the playstyle, and rather then taking a careful approach to the problem, they take a shotgun to it!
