Point is, there are plenty of PvE players farming PvP dailies to get PvP relics, without contributing at all in the PvP match. Not everyone has super carebear knowledge.

So what you are saying is this; It's all those who never manage to lose with grace, never use self reflection on their own play and who constantly refuse to learn from experience that will shun this and that it is the only ones left that PvP!?

Interesting - it gonna reveal it self then . . . read my post again and think real hard, This creates a space AND A REASON for those who know and are able in PvP to be on their own play ground . . .

However we feel that having wins be the only criteria is a better way to go instead of making them games played. This is because of the incentive to play the gamemode for the right reasons (to win) is much lower for someone who is just interested in completing the daily/weekly. A percentage of the Ranked population would be queuing just to complete a quest and that would be detrimental to the team. We feel Games Played with an incentive (Double counts for Wins) is more acceptable in Unranked games because of the larger team size (less personal impact on if your team wins or loses) and more casual atmosphere.

This is our current philosophy on the choice we made but if it isn't working out we will make adjustments where and when possible.

Cheers!
thank you.

now for consistency.'s sake, about that proposed expertise requirement? requiring full exp would, btw, eliminate any need for bolster as you couldn't enter the match w/o pvp mods in every slot. no need to compensate for higher dmg pve barrels or gear gaps (conq min/max is competitive enough to eliminate loss by gear gap alone).

Your comment is exactly what I was talking about, that insulting elitist attitude. First you insult me, then you discount anything I've said just because you don't agree with it by saying I am "casual", which I am not. People with your attitude is what is ruining the fun of this game and PVP. Your little "club", which it is not. You can have a playstyle and legitimate opinion, but don't insult people and act like a child about it all shoving your ego into everything.

Ranked is about whatever the player want's it to be. Unfortunately too many people seem to think its an ego trip and elitist club. Which it is not. I pay 15 bucks a month for the game, so I can do Ranked if I please, for any reason I please. Yet, the Ranked que never popped in Season 1 on my server, leaving my toon qued at prime time for 3 hrs with no pop, so doesn't much matter anyway.

So, how do you propose fresh 55's get into a WZ then? You cant have enough comms saved to buy a full set of PVP gear the second you hit 55, so you have to PVP in half PVE gear until you can get more PVP gear. What you are saying would make it impossible to do PVP at 55.

NO!!!!! The Berzerker Relics are second best in slot. Most everyone I know in my HM ops has them now. They are essential. I PVP'd all week to save comms before 2.7 hit so I could get the new Relics on many of my HM Ops toons. This is an outrageous idea.

for this to work the comm count must be significant higher then in the reg dailies, and more in occurance so that these fine PvPers don't wonder off to much ...

And in this case the player want it to be about winning, it has to swing both ways . . . take a lesson from your self and allow those who want it to be about winning have their fun as well ...

breathe deep. reread the quote. we're not talking about WZs. we're talking about rated arenas. it's the lack of gear restriction and bolster in rated that's at issue. this has absolutely zero to do with fresh 55s.
