ya i knew that and i still typed it...my bad. not so sure how the game counts extra Comms. but my point minus that statement still stands.

I see this line over and over again, so i guess premades dont get it. I dont want to play vs a premade and I dont want to play with 1 either (and yes, anytime I que up and get on a team with a premade I leave that grp). Choices being to get rolled or cheese the wz and win...or to be frustrated or bored. Why would I want to cheese my way to an effortless win, that's not any better than being rolled. Solo que ppl want a fair fight. That's all we ask for. Premades obviously dont want that, or theyd be in rated.
you see the line over and over...yet you cannot seem to wrap your head around the fact that premades mean NOTHING

A premade of noobs is a premade of noobs
PUT YOUR HELMET ON !!!

Last I heard, it depended on how close the game was and possibly length, but I don't honestly remember from previous dev posts.
I have opinions and stuff

so what happens when "premades" start invading the solo-only queues? the end result will be the same as we have now: groups of players will be together in warzones using voice communication and superior tactics to fight true pugs.

what do we do then?

Played 2 matches today, 1 loss 1 win, both were blow outs and I logged(it was exactly what I was expecting). Class balance, stuns, and all the other stuff that could be better means nothing if the match isn't competitive. I do hope that this matchmaking system is implemented soon.

Take the gear gap reduction and enjoy yourself.
actually the ques have slowed....you just dont see it during normal play times yet. The ques start off popping 24/7 every 5 mins or so....then pop drops a bit and the ques pop a bit more slowly starting in the off hours (3 am server to 9 am round abouts) ...... then the off hours slot starts popping very rarely ( like it is now) every 30 mins to an hr or so.....then the ques dont pop at all during this timeslot and the que time jumps up a bit during normal playing hours (ie 15 mins or so per pop) then more and more....til they do a server combining and the whole process restarts. I guess the f2p did almost the same thing pop wise and maybe yet again theyll do it with a cross server que.....not sure where theyll go from there tho. They can only cover diminishing subs for so long (tho note if you unsub now, you get moved to a f2p sub and will prob be counted as an active sub whether you play or not).

Competitive non-ranked warzones? You do realize that sounds pretty hilarious?

I just dont get it that with over 50.000 views, 150 pages and 1500 posts, this thread has to be the hottest topic on the PvP forums. Why doesn't Bioware acknowledge it at least with their usual ******** (we are aware of the issue blah.blah,blah.....working on a fix.....blah,blah,blah......no ETA blah,blah, blah)

They can't ignore this thread forever. They will have to open another one eventually, when it reaches even more pages.

it really is discouraging if you go against a full warhero premade three times in a row. i'd say, leave premades for ranked and make queueing for normal wz available only for a single player, not party. i've definately learned something out of going against premades - that you need teamspeak to do well in wz. then again, if you throw a bunch of f2p players who just went p2p and have no clue what to do, they will soon realise, warzones are not for them as they are run by one or two guilds who simply put - are all over the place. don't get me wrong, i like having some difficulity in game, but going against premade on normal wz is just a waste of time.
