Thanks for the response, Mr. Watson. Now how about those cross server queues?

Look for this to be up by the end of the month.

That's all I can share currently, but if I get anything else, I will make sure to post it for you.

Cool.

I hope you guys release what the rewards will be at the beginning of Season 2, to try to entice people to play. Thus far there has only been this ambiguous thing to play for (if you dont like PvP for the sake of PvP), and I think its part of the reason why so few teams are active in Ranked.

It's crucial that participation alone will result in rewards or it will quicly die down again. On the other hand, with no win criteria they might end up in an AFK situation. It's a tricky balance.

Cross-server queues should be priority #1.

Agreed. However, the fact that he didn't even comment on the X-server question kinda gets me wondering...

Cross server is not coming so just let it go, you'll feel better.

Solution should be simple enough. Tiny rewards like titles for anyone who has a single ranked match, and bigger rewards the higher up you go, like speeders, cosmetic gear sets, etc.

On another note, not trying to pessimistic, but aside from match making system, which we know can't be done with the current populations on servers without cross server ques, there is not much that the devs team can say/provide that have value. I have little interest in "special" speeder or a piece of armor.
