PvP making game unenjoyable.

Battlegrounds
I was playing a BG today and a Paladin Holy Shocked me for 196k and then killed me with his next shot. This seems to happen a lot, it may very well be the battlegroup I am on but it seems like all I face are Paladins that are beyond unkillable. I enjoy PvP and enjoy it often but after experiencing things like this constantly and seeing how most of the Magic classes namely pallies, DKs, Mages, Locks, and Priests seem to dominate PvP geared or not....it leaves me wondering whether to bother playing anymore. As a hunter I eel like we are the weakest class and the way PvP is it seems those classes seem to steamroll all others. I watch Rogues and Warriors and fellow hunters get destroyed so quickly and it just shocks me that the balance is so crazy. I am well aware that my toon is nowhere near geared but come on the way it is now seem so insane. A 196k crit compared to my crits on clothies doing average of 20-30k. is anyone else experiencing the same by any chance?
hunters dominate pvp right now.
you need some pvp gear.
I have a hard time believing a gear divide swings the game so drastically and if it does then something is very wrong IMO.

You need some gear, yes it does make a difference. Nothing is wrong, the PVP gear > all of your gear. If it didn't matter we wouldn't be wearing it.
I know it makes a difference but to be that dramatic of a gap seems broken.

Its not broken...look at the starts the gear gives you, compared to what you have. How is that broken? You will live longer, hit harder, get hit for way less. Some classes will still nuke you, that's beyond what YOUR issue is.

The whole reason they put in pvp power was to force people to stop wearing PVE gear in PVP. That's why you're getting roughed up so much in your current gear.

People in full pvp gear are doing between 25% and 30% more damage to you from their pvp power stat.
This game is still too difficult for a lot of players.
OP you have 1 piece of PvP gear & you are missing 7 enchants. You also have a 2-8 arena record (lifetime). This indicates to me that you are at best average & you are for a fact wearing below average/PVE gear. Working completely as intended.
