On paper it would work but not in game as it would be very difficult to know how much to incease the DPS/healing output.
Then it would need all teams to adapt to a new game play during that time as 1 opponent could mean much more than what a "standard" character HP, DPS, healing should have.

Also you'd have to inform all players that the ratio changed and to how much ==> a bit mess!

Is there a plan to change in-game USERNAMES and LEGACY NAMES in the near future? Since the transfers there has been alot of upset players over the conflict that forced many of us to change because of your one name per server policy which has caused a major rift with many players to unsub because many felt bioware handled this poorly.

Just wanted to point out that the less ELO loss for the team with a dropped member is a terrible idea. Its way to easy too exploit. "oh man we're gonna lose, quick 7 of you unplug your router so we don't lose rating"

If you want to provide a measure to mitigate these situations, you need to do it right. Take a snapshot of group members upon queueing and/or entering the BG. Only those members can be in the BG. If one disconnects, then the warzone lets him rejoin after say 90 seconds. The 90 second delay is needed so that people don't try to exploit the system to quickly run back to base or full heal and re-join right away type thing. Its also a short enough to delay to not necesarily be a game ender, and provides for a better option than not being able to rejoin for the next 10 min when the game has ended

Perhaps we're looking at this from the wrong direction? How many times are people legitimately "losing connection"? Maybe it's actually behavior rather than faulty equipment. Thus, stiffer penalties need to be incurred to curb that behavior.

Just offering a different tack, here, don't flame me.

The real problem is the case of those with their eight character slots already filled by character from a single faction. They're denied the pet due to its designed implementation, and there's nothing they can do to change that other than delete a character and roll something else. That's fairly messed up.

Additional character slots need to be added at the time the new companion is pushed live in order to avoid such situations.

There is some indication that more character slots will be here before HK-51. By the sounds of the comments from devs on the topic, it sounds like they're moving right along with it.

Do you have any sources you could link? I'm not doubting you, I just haven't seen anything on the topic in some time.

I am disappointed that BW had decided to answer the same question twice in the few Q&A posts they have made (the threat question has already been answered in almost an identical fashion).

I also hop BW will open new character slots for HK... I have spent a lot of time levelling the characters I already have, and shouldn't be forced to delete them for this. Time sync I can understand, but forced money/time waste I don't.

Just the same old comment in the Q&As on this and Georg Zoeller's comment. As well as Damion's. Comments we've all seen before.
