Most of the people who *still* PvP started when everybody was new, and there was no obviously OP build-out.
Not me I started PvPing 6 months in. This was my first MMO, PvP is an attitude. I was getting curbstomped and facerolled consistently when I started. I was more surprised when my team won when I would die 6 times in a cruiser. You have to be willing to take your lumps, ask questions, look at people you are fighting, analyze builds of others to get better. but most of the people in this game do not have the attention span to do that. But alas I think cryptic may have pushed my last button I am only getting periodically for a couple of hours. I either get into a match with my friends and faceroll pugs or get into a match with Science premades and get facerolled. I mean yeah season 1.1 may have had a bunch of broken things but PvP was at its apex now PvP has fallen harder and faster than my 401K.
