I think it's player attitudes that's the problem, not the game. Sportsmanship isn't very widespread in any PvP game, and this game is no exception. Sometimes you have to stand back and wonder if you're taking your dominance of any given round too far. It's actually OK to throttle back, providing you don't do it too much for risk of looking cocky ("Oh look, I don't have to even try with you... hur hur hur...").
I just find with established teams that the attitude is not to play fair, but to dominate. If that attitude could change, perhaps save it for matches that actually matter, you might find the PvP environment a bit better.
For me the reason why i bring teams with me is mostly just that i want to play
with my friends
, its teamplay that matters to me and taking chances with pugs often doesn't work out as theres good chances to either get people that don't read team chat at all or even getting people that try to sabotage certain other players.
Oh well and theres also certain people with a bug exploiting history that i'd rather avoid playing together with if i can avoid it too.
