Bringing this back somewhat on topic, if you're going to queue for ranked, do not leave the queue so you can participate in win trading. Not only do you lose rating for hitting the leave q button, but the team who gets dodged gets free rating. And while thats nice, we would like to actually enjoy a match rather than a free win. I would also like to remind those of you who shall go unnamed that win trading is strictly against the TOS. Thanks!

PS: im from southamerica so my englihs is crap plz dont judge me :P
I think you are a great pvp'er ... i search you out sometimes ^_^

but yeah those facts are the sole reason I really shy away from ranked competition... right now I just see it as very unfair and stupid... so, I just enjoy the game where I can

A terrible pvp environment gets created by the use of exploits by some and the abusive and rude behavior of others and the only response that ever comes back is "nuh uh". Pretty tired of that too. It would seem by the state of ranked that most everybody else on the server is too.

Anyway made my points. Agree? Disagree? I don't care. You can go back to being kings and queens of who cares and shouting down any complaint with the usual "nuh uh". Its worked out so well so far right.
If I tell my mommy and daddy they will call BIoware and send you to the time out corner mister! You just wait!?!??!?!?!??!?. And by the way I am the King of Korriban. Shesh get your facts straight.

Anyway. (joking aside)

A terrible PVP environment comes from the fact that we play on an RP-PVE server. You are more likely to run into people with less gear or people who will literally RP in PVP. I've seen it. Ranked on this server isn't on life support because a guild used respec macros which no one basically knew about for the longest time. It is on life support because people aren't committed to ranked. They aren't committed to losing before winning. You cannot enter ranked pvp and expect to win from day 1. That isn't possible unless the teams queueing for ranked are really THAT bad.

When Melyn was in Ascension this was the ranked Scene.

GD vs. Ascension (most of the night)
Dark Jedi Order (Intraguild Farming Ranked)
Infamous (1-2 queues a night)

Once Melyn left it became.
Ascension, GD, ITK, Infamous, Retaliation, and a few other small guilds participating for 1-2 matches then calling it quits.

And the fact of the matter is out of all of these guilds only 4 would actually stick around after losing. Ascension, ITK, infamous, and Retaliation. That is why Ranked PVP fails on this server. Not because of macros or exploiters. Deny this fact all you want. All I see is one person admitting to macros and everyone jumping on his *** citing that This is the SOLE REASON why ranked failed on this server. Not server population, not that we are on a RP-PVE server, not that people are so thin skinned that they can't tolerate losing, not that this server is losing its PVP'ers to other games like WoW, GW2, ect. No no, those reasons aren't valid. No its because 1 guild used macros. That must be it!

Again. Grow up. If you are going to call him out. Do it properly. And if you are going to argue with me. Sort out your made up facts from your actual facts.

Btw care to explain to me what lag hacks are? I have yet to figure that one out.

With transfers here, I'd like to say, "So long, and thanks for all the fish". Had a lot of good times here, like to thank everyone for working with me to help ranked on this server. We had some good times.

I'm leaving Melyn on this server and would love to see ranked continue (though I will not be actively pursuing/organizing it). If anyone needs a node guard or a scoundrel healer, feel free to contact me. The best way is probably through my stream, which I will continue to stream ranked and regs on a nightly basis, more so as we move to the Bastion. I think it'd be fun if everyone kept it touch, and if you find yourself on the Bastion, say hello to us.

Greetings,

Please avoid calling-out any specific player or guild for any reason, as this is strictly prohibited on the forum. Please read here for further information on call-outs.

lag hacks are when ppl use switches to lag out areas in the game i havent seen one used in some time. most ppl confuse it from server lag and internet lag in general
