The game has changed a lot. In ways the devs did not expect. Whatever they said back then has zero relevance today. In particular....

>we were told that you knew how important the ability to choose which warzones we queue for was...

They will never split the lev 50 wz queue. As it is some servers only have 1 or 2 lev 50 matches going on at once. If you split the queue these servers might have zero lev 50 matches during regular daytime hours. Originally, I think they felt they might be able to split the wz queues once x-server was up and running. But we all know now that the Hero engine isn't capable of x-server, so.....

>Firstly, When will SOLO Ranked PVP be added to the game. Secondly, When will Season 1 of Team ranked PVP begin?

Firstly, no queue splitting. See above. Secondly, it is inconceivable that they would start Season 1 of ranked before the class balance changes in 1.7. And after that, it is inconceivable that they would have a Season 1 of ranked that lasted for only 2 months before the lev cap is lifted to 55. And after that they will need to rebalance classes to take into account r/l experience with the new lev 55 abilities. So....

>Stop developing any new ideas until such time as all of the features we have been promised time and time again have actually been finished.

While I can understand your mindset, the reality is that BW is trying to make money here. Actually fulfilling promises they made in the past to get your money in prior months is, well.....pointless since they already have your money! Instead it is much more profitable for them to make new promises to induce you and others to give them more money going forward. This is how software development/support works. Your only defense as a customer is to spend your money based on what is available now. Not based on what is promised in the future that may or may not transpire. And since it is *YOUR* money, you really can't blame anyone but yourself if someone promises you something in the future and you give them money for it now, with no recourse. Can you?
