Meanwhile healer #2 is free casting on healer #1 and Tank. If the group changes focus to healer #2 the tank swaps guard to healer #2 and same thing happens again. Say everyone focuses on the Tank? Then he gets double healed from healer #1 and healer #2. No one dies. You need at least 5 players on the opposing team to have a chance at killing at least one of the trio. Meanwhile the rest of the opposing team has basically free reign to go about killing capping interrupting the team that it is almost impossible to do anything and the game becomes a bore. The only way to counter this is to have your own premade group, then you end up with a match where virtually no one dies and it's almost impossible to cap anything. 1 tank 1 healer isn't as hard to beat if you have the numbers but 2 healers and 1 tank played well is virtually impossible in pub. Compound that with the fact that because the matches are not death match they just come right back after you kill them and you have to start all over. Bioware needs to address this by either putting a timer on the guard swap or making returns on healing diminishing with multiple healers or limiting the number of healers in a match.

wait, you are arguing about a pre-made being balanced.......but but but coach, you want us to pick up 5 guys off the street, but what if we have no one that can dribble the basketball. What if we get 5 centers and no point guard....

Most will argue that pre-mades are what you are SUPPOSED TO DO. You are gimping yourself if you are not. If you go in without, you're the one doing it and at your own risk. I would even further add that at leaset half the pre-mades aren't that organized too. Just 3 or 4 guildies gropuing to do unranked, and probably half of those aren't even in a chat channel together.
