Signed. Allow 2 four man teams.

Arenas have become a que dodging que syncing mess stacked with juggs and a miscule participation rate. Make that format 1 v 1 or 2 v 2. Knowing the pvp budget is only enough for maybe 2 devs, the 2 fourman option is probably the easiest and cheapest fix for this mess they created. Plus you can always blame the other 4 man group if you lose so people won't get as butthurt and stop queuing after 2 matches. It would also add meaning to being in a guild once again and I bet many former players would come back to at least check it out.

I love the way you assume there are any devs working on pvp.

Guys, keep a little perspective on PvP updates. You guys get tweaks and updates all the time. Heck, you have even gotten new warzones and arenas, plus an additional huttball map that was so requested on the forums when I left.. Compare that to say, The secret world PvP, which hasn't even had a single new map. After playing TSW and having been waiting for an AFK mechanic SINCE LAUNCH I find all opinions about the slowness of other games' updates laughable.

Still, not having Ranked 8-man queing has got to be one of the stupidest things I have heard about in any MMO. Isn't the whole point being who is the best team? Before I left (i just got back by the way) I had a blast with my guild (which has now disintegrated, i'v been away a long time). I feel this was such a stupid move, there has to be something genius that I am missing; so I need some context. Why was this even removed in the first place?

The reason given was "nobody was using it, plus queue times were long because it took 16 players to fill a match. Instead, we've given you TEAM DEATHMATCH ONLY since that seems to make so many people so freakin' happy in other games."

I'm not bitter. Not at all.

God, just allow solo ranked 8 man queing. If nothing else those games depict a larger sample size of skill due to the increased matched duration and respawn. They also happen to be immensely more enjoyable. Competitive players have been de-incentivized straight out of the most enjoyable pvp format.
