While I agree and I have (Vastly) enjoyed leveling 3 new alts AND wanting to level more (Currently have no more slots..desperately wanting some) I can not agree when it comes to battlegrounds.
They have become more and more of a gib fest and extremely unbalanced. This has nothing
to do with heirlooms though, despite the arguments many (what seems to be very bitter) twinks make.
Each and every one of my 3 classes I have leveled (with heirlooms yes) I have been 1 shot in every bracket prior to 60. Most of these are from abilities such as Ambush and ravage (More infuriating since it's from stealth) I've also had numerous abilities (mainly from warriors which will most likely be down to heirlooms however) one or two shot me, on very low or no cooldown abilities, and things like aimed shot taking off much more than my HP when at high level for the bracket. While aimed shot takes a while to cast I admit, for an enhancement shaman trapped in a web at level 50 there isn't much I can do to get out of it apart from a 5 minute trinket.
This never use to be this bad, I'm also seeing so many bad players arise from this. If I actually manage to escape 1 out of the 10 times ambush only took me to 5% health instead of killing me, I can then turn around and beat the rogue, even when it takes me 20x the hits than what it would with him. They haven't learnt how to play their class basically, they've gone through the brackets 1 shotting things and not learning. So it's a double edged sword in the fact it helps no one, only the person doing the 1 shotting in the short term for their giggles
And really, that isn't funny. Seeing the same generic rogue pop from stealth and you're dead before you can blink an eyelid.
When abilities literally do one shot you, I think it needs looking into. This has been like it for a long time now, and apart from this, I'd utterly love low level BGs. Twinks have gone but just got replaced with high damage abilities.
Surely it is possible to tone down the damage pre-60/70/80/85.
