Dear Bioware,

We the PVPers of SWTOR request that a system of matchmaking be implemented for warzones. This should include matching players according to skill level as well as proper team balance regarding classes.

For this to be possible, obviously the optimal situation would involve cross server queuing, meaning that all servers would share one large queue. This would enable the system to have a larger pool of players to properly match up according to rating/rank/skill and classes.

As it stands now, the discrepancy between class balance AND player skill levels is vast, and often times due to such imbalances the PVP experience is not as enjoyable as it could be.

Due to no kind of matchmaking being involved in non-ranked warzones, sometimes a team will have no healers, while the other has 3-5 healers. Obviously this kind of imbalance of class types makes for bad games.

Another alternative or addition to cross-server queues could be cross team queues... Meaning imps and republic players queing could be teamed up. This too would broaden the pool to make matchmaking easier.

Proper matchmaking would improve the quality of PVP immensely, and such a change would even draw more gamers worldwide to play SWTOR if the PVP had better matchmaking.

Bioware/Devs of SWTOR, please respond to this petition. Let us know if this can be accomplished entirely or partially and if so, when? If not, please explain why it cannot.

cross server would be good. and LIGHTWEIGHT matchmaking that didn't slow down queues too much would be nice, but I think it's better to have imbalanced, fast pops, than to have slow, balanced pops (how balanced are they really gonna be, anyways?)
