"How to be a Dev"
by
Bioware

Chapter One

Try to ignore a problem and hopefully it will go away and you won't have to acknowledge it exists.

Chapter Two

Congradulations! You are now a dev.

The End.

I have basically gotten so sick of PVP in this game thus the whole game itself. One day I just woke up and asked myself, "WHY am I playing an MMO by Electronic Arts?" The answer was, "Don't." So I haven't. Which has been great.

So you are no longer playing this game then.


I think we can chalk this up as a win for everyone.

I suppose it is easier to not play than to improve. It takes less effort anyway.

It may be my imagination, but it seems to me that PvP is currently suffering from a lack of players. I wonder, has the recent inflow of premades that has resulted from the pending loss of ranked warzones caused solo q'ers to decide to throw in the towel, and just give up on PvP altogether?

i don't know. I would have told you that they're all on the PTS, but I hear PTS Qs are empty. so yeah, I do think there's a bit of a population crisis atm.

fyi: there's always a massive population drop at the end of an xpac/right before a new one. that's sort of what's going on with 2.4, which is basically the second xpac this game has seen. they're not spread out evenly, but 2 xpacs in approximately 2 years.

schools have started up now as well.

and lastly, yes, I do think more ppl left when they saw the 2.4 changes than resubbed. but that's just an impression from the board and my own conversations with others in voice/in game. not exactly a representative sample.

The war zone ques are dying off. These are the longest wait times i have experienced since before merger. The pugs have all quit, the long term subs, many are going f2p(including myself). Honestly, i can't get a wz on shadowlands without facing another member of my guild. And POT5? its just as bad, the que times have gotten bad. IMO they need to get the f2p going on wz not because their being nice, but because there simply aren't enough subs left to fill them currently. Ranked is going to be a ghost town, half the pvp subs are dropping so they will not have enough players to keep it interesting and the regs will just be pugstomping 24/7. And Arenas? lol you think the quitting problem is bad now? Wait till people go into an arena with one weak link or only 3 ppl, everyone will quit asap. They have taken a decided casual turn in their pvp and its not really for the better, its an admission of failure and scaling things back.
