When I would Queue on NA, there was a lot of arguments in /2 (pvp) channel about who wasn't doing enough DPS or healing or anything scoreboard related. Often times, plays that heavily favor the team at the expense of personal stats on the scoreboard were often overlooked and just not recognized. There was a lot more number farming and less strategic knockdowns. There was much less peeling. Cross guard was almost very rarely a thing and specifically only a thing when very specific above average players were in the queue.

Meanwhile, on DM, I literally don't even have to ask for a guard when I'm low, I just receive one. And on top of that, I don't have to click off my team-mates's guard in order to guard them, they will instinctively drop guard so that they can be guarded, when necessary. There have been so many times when a team mate will go out of their way to help you when on NA it would rarely happen. I've been knocked down on Mandalorian battle ring by the enemy and had a Sorc pull me back up specifically at a strategic time, when multiple enemy dps jumped down to chase me. I've had hard stuns and mezzes get cleansed by friendly sorcs/operatives, which is incredibly rare on NA. I'm not talking about healers cleansing, I'm talking DPS players who are cleansing stuns/mezzes, which is insane. The level of cooperation is just miles higher, and you don't even need to ask for these things to happen via typing in /ops chat, it's just expected that people will behave this way. Trying to get people to do these things on NA would be like pulling teeth and would only occur when a specific set of high skilled players on are in, which coincidentally, happen to be the same players who play on DM as well, they will simply queue NA if there is a streamer streaming NA matches, since they have toons on multiple servers.


Overall, I would say this: It's preseason, there's no elo at stake and the queues are popping literally all day at any time on DM. If any of you haven't tried it, now is the best time to do it. Just server xfer over and if you don't like it, move back. The experience is leagues better than what happens on NA and it would be awesome if NA even had a crumb of similarity, because then I could queue with a ping of 20 again instead of 150+, lol.
I know my point of view isnít a ranked one or probably cared about, but everything youíve described is exactly the same attitude in regs on NA for a few years now. It seems that terrible attitude in regs has been slowly filtering into ranked in the NA ranked scene.

People donít care about team work in regs and if you canít have team work in objective pvp (where it can be more important to achieve a win than actual damage), itís understandable why they have such a poor attitude towards team work in ranked.

I really hope something can be done to improve it for both parts of the game or ranked in NA will be mostly non existent in the not to distant future and then those left over ranked players will move to DM and bring that same poor attitude there and infect the player culture.

I know people are sick of me posting about some things or sounding like a broken record, but I post because I love the pvp game and I hate to see it die.
And because people donít see that what happens in lowbies, Mids and regs, does ultimately affect ranked players too.

So when Iíve heard / read statements over the years that regs donít matter or telling me to shut it when I complain about the state of non ranked pvp. It frustrates and upsets the hell out of me because I know the good players will end up abandoning the game if ranked dies and then pvp is basically dead too.

I wish for once the players from the top to the bottom would unit to try and fix the games pvp culture from within. We know Bioware wonít or donít care enough to do it. Which means the good players and pvp ambassadors need to step up and try and show how the bad attitudes in pvp are wreaking the game.

And I not even talking about the toxicity. I mean the silly death matching and epeening on the score boards in objective pvp. Iím talking about people refusing to help teach or deriding people who are trying to teach or who are trying to play properly.

There arenít many well known and respected players left in the game like yourself Kreía or streamers like Snave. People such as, and ďlikeĒ yourselves, are the real pvp influencers in this game. It would be awesome to see more streaming on NA by Snave and with a group of you guys showing how to handle objective pvp and handle people objecting to playing properly by reinforcing good communication and strategy in pug groups.

I know Snave did a whole thing last year with his guild on DM 💕, but itís the NA player base that needs the extra help these a days and anything you guys and your social circle or other good pvpers can do to help influence attitudes would certainly help the pvp part of the game and ultimately the ranked pvp game in the long term.

Anyway, sorry if I sound preachy or nagging or what ever (annoying). Of course what ever you do is always appreciated.

Yes that would be the best way, but I think they will never do it. That would ruin the whole idea of having the game, website etc in the 3 languages. They might as well have it all in english then. For US there could be one server, they are located in the same datacenter after all, but that would look silly for them as it would show how small the player base it.

The way it is now it the lowest they can go with the servers to maintain some solid view of the game and the game population. It would be better if it was reduced even more, but they will probably never do it.

Thats about as long as I wait in the GSF que, so what? I dont get you people. You leave for another server, just cause you do not want to sit in que?? You sacrifice lag for pops, which you could have if you all stayed on SF and qued! Thats just silly.

When I que for GSF I do other stuff, I do not just stand on fleet. I even do that but i watch movies in the back ground and wait for pop. I just move every 10 min so I am not afk and kicked from game. Its better to sit in que than to simply give up!

So the way I see it, you guys did this to yourself. Instead of staying loyal to your server you went to DM which killed off the que definitely. If you guys just all agree on playing on SF I think it should be fine. I doubt that there arent 10-12 players to que on SF at prime time.

Yes, mero, but you cannot control what other people do, only what you do yourself. I've stayed on SF for the past 3 seasons. I've almost certainly sat in queue waiting for pops longer than anyone else in the game over that span, but I would never demand that anyone else do that. That's why I've never even asked for people to queue ranked on fleet like some do.

It's definitely true that if every NA player that wanted to play ranked decided to only queue on SF, we would have a bigger ranked population and many more pops. But how could all the NA players come to that agreement? Shall we hook up to the hive mind? Or do it in the NA swtor player group chat that doesn't exist? And then how would we enforce compliance? I say all this just to underscore how utterly stupid your post was.

I just find it weird that this behavior is only on the NA server. Not that I don't believe it, it's quite possible.

Well, that is sad anyway, whether it's as complicated as a societal reason behind it, or just a matter of an immature crowd happening to stick together and follow one another to a specific server to pollute it I mean play on it.

If it's the toxicity stuff, I chalk it up to my reason more, that being immature players found one another, latched onto to each other, and now like a childish immature blob they roam together and right now, they have plopped on SF.

One bad feature of the internet is the way that works.

Well maybe its time to do it somehow. I mean if there are really enough people and they just que on DM cause SF has no pops then its very very silly. They must be very persistent about it as they are able to sacrifice the lag and time delay. With such commitment it shouldnt be a problem for them to be persuaded to que on SF.
