meh. i would rather BW spends their time working on things that everyone will actually use. xserver is a waste of time and only will be used by the tiny group of people who actually want real competition in rateds. thats a very very small number of people... maybe 1 or 2 teams per server. the rest will be spending most of their time in normal WZs just as they do now. or they will spend their time in rateds vs teams of alts from their sister guilds, just as they do now.
Under *current* mechanics this makes sense; if you didn't HAVE to have a full team of 8 to compete in Ranked WZ's, then yours truly forsees far-greater possiblities.
