Hey guys, I'm a Jugg just getting back into things. The last I played was mid 2012 and I used to PvP all the time. I was really trying to get my Warlord title back then, stopped playing at rank 84. I finished leveling a week or so ago and almost have my gear up to 306, and thought I might queue and start to finish my Warlord grind only to get a rude awakening.

I've played 13 max level matches so far and only won 2 of those 13. Those other 11 matches my teammates ran into a jumbled mess in the middle of the map somewhere and started fighting forever(I'm assuming to rack up medals?) with seemingly little regard for objectives to actually win the map. Am I missing something? Is medal farming more efficient than winning? I was also quite embarrassed when I grabbed the huttball and tried to tank walk my way all the way to the goal only to instantly drop dead since I wasn't aware they had put a time limit on the damn thing lol.

Also does ranked reward any more valor than unranked? Is it even worth attempting to learn if I haven't been playing this long? Ranked wasn't even a thing back when I was playing so I know nothing about how it works, I'm just assuming that everyone expects perfection.

Lastly what's up with optimization? The game somehow feels.....worse than it did back in 2012, or maybe I've just been spoiled by other games so much that I forgot how bad the FPS/lag/overall jank of this game actually was/is. Even with all my settings on low, I just feel like I can barely see what I'm doing with the amount of FPS drops and characters glitching/freeze framing around the map.

Are there any quick tips/easy nuances I should know for getting valor? I realize that the valor ranks are meaningless now, it's just for old time sake I'd like to finish the grind just for the title.
