When does survivablitly improve
First take a good look at your gear, you should be in mostly blues close to your lvl or BOA's. Because the people your going up against usually have full BOA gear with enchants and if your just pushing green gear they can tell (Mostly by seeing you health). When I do a bg and see someone with low hp I know their gear sucks which means a very easy kill.
Next is your lvl, b/c bg's go by every 5 lvl ( example: 20-24 and 25-29) you will stay in those brackets. So if you just had a bg at lvl 25 you will face ppl that are usually lvl 27-29. So when they come running at you and see you big green lvl 25 and low hp above your head it is just screaming KILL ME PLZ.
So a good rule of thumb is not to bg during the lower part of the bracket (20-22 or 25- 27) unless you have pretty good gear.
My advice, if you enjoy the class and its mechanics, stick with it. They are pvp tanks at 90.
