Hope you guys manage to bring x-server to pvp and return of ranked 8 man wzs at some point.

With those two alone ranked pvp would flourish in swtor.

Delaying x-server is just a help to the competition coming from other games, being showroom new or old as egypt.

I also would have liked the following in arenas; gear check (easy no 2018 expertise no ranked que, something similar to spec change may be?), and also punishment to leavers; timer (starting at 10 mins and increasing) plus decreasing points (also increasing more if you leave more to 1 game).

^^ all of these!

Good, the players on those servers who see themselves as "leets" should move on and test themselves in a proper environment then.

The other up point on that is, it would leave casual players to play amongst themselves.

Unless of course it is true that there are people out there who play RP servers just to be a big fish in a small pond.
Want to fix ranked PVP? Cross-server/faction queues, bring back 8v8s, remove bolster from all ranked play, add a 2018 expertise gate, remove ranked commendations from all non-ranked play, including the 3:1 conversion.

If a potential of 96 "top" players per server sounds too much (and it probably is), reduce it to top 1-2 players per AC per server. The pros of this outweigh the cons for reasons I provided in a previous post, especially if you 1) Make rating reset upon character transfer from a PvE to PvP server (or just any server transfer), or more preferably 2) Lock the "top" reward from being used/displayed on any server other than the one on which it was earned. I don't feel like this would "require too much coding".
Why should leet pvpers on a rp server get any rewards whatsoever when all they are doing is beating casuals who don't care if they win or lose?

If people want the rewards, move to the pvp servers and compete with the big boys.

The reward will be given to the Top 3 of each Advanced Class of the entire Ranked population. NOT per server.

8 Advanced Classes per Faction * 2 Factions * Top 3 players * 2 Gamemodes (Ranked and Solo) = 96 rewarded players

Hope that helps make sense of the situation!
No point to que for rewards if NOT per server, cause every server have difference faction balance, pop and class component. This is big mistake for solos, i think.

So I should be PUNISHED for hating 4v4 WZ (unless it is ranked) and leaving them when they pop? Uhh...NO! This is MY game buddy, and I am not setting through a match I can't stand playing. If they would give us a CHOICE of what to que for that would be great, but they don't. So, when a 4v4 pops I leave because I get zero enjoyment out of them. 4v4 should be in ranked only anyway imo.

Maybe if you brought back ranked 8v8 (the only ranked I have ever enjoyed) it would solve the problem.....

And what is the deal with have to at least played 10 ranked matches to get credit? You realize last season I never got credit for rewards because the que would never pop. I got 2 total games, ever. If you don't do the 10 games in the first week or so, you may as well forget it on my server (Shadowlands). There is already people in gen chat complaining because Ranked is not popping anymore.

absolutely.

When you join the queue you "accept" the terms of not being a dick to other players.

I can only strongly hope that BW will finally have a penalty on leaving...
