I posted this in the other thread and I'll do the same here, as you adressed the same question: Bad design. We're queuing for two entirely seperate gametypes here. One which is a full pug team deathmatch, or an objective-based type where groups queue and slaughter pugs.
PRE-ORDER ACCOUNT LEGACY LEVEL 50 LEVEL +55s: 20
ETERNAL WARRIOR CHEEVO POINTS: +28,000

Thanks very much for taking the time to respond, and for the informative update. I was a bit cautious about Arenas at first but I'm looking forward to them the more I hear about them.

I have to say that it's a little worrying about the specialisation. A guildie of mine is one of the best Guardian Tanks I know but his current spec is 22/23/1 which would presumably put him in as a DPS. It would be great if people did not have to give up specs that they've decided suit their natural playstyle to conform to the matchmaking system.

Hello Alex,

Are there any plans in the future to see larger PVP warzone groups? I'm not talking 40 v 40, but it would be nice to see some 12 v 12 or 15 v 15 warzones coming.

His stance might put him into a tanking roll. At least I would think it would.

Are there going to be any measures in place to prevent 'fight-clubbing' in Ranked arenas?
I can guarantee people will form 2 groups and Queue together, leaving if not put together and re-queuing.
As the 'fight-club partner teams' will remain of a similar ranking, the chances of them being put together will only increase as they gain ranks and make the process easier.

The match making system takes the spec into account and locks it down for the duration of the match.

Stances are never looked at and can be changed while ingame. Moreover, some classes dont even have stances like Scoundrel.

I am curious to see how they solved/ will solve this problem.

No, but he does look at his keyboard while he goes through his 1-2-3-4 rotation.

Just kidding, Musco is actually a joy to have on your Arena team, he holds his own.
