You stated in your post about the removal of ranked warzones.

Answer the questions being put forward in this thread by the competitive pvp community instead of dodging around them? Hardly doing your post justice leaving every stone unturned.

There are no drawbacks for keeping ranked warzones as they are in the game. This was a major PvP patch and you took out the most competitive part. If you continue with removing ranked warzones, the arenas and warzones will be flooded with extremely bad players with no knowledge about the game and maybe the occasional decent player.

I know alot of guilds and players transferred their characters from all over EU to ToFN, spending money in order to play ranked. And just a couple of months later you take out ranked warzones.

Also, please stop making a fool out of yourself Alex and stop dodging rwz questions.

5 Minutes seems way to short for sudden death gas cloud. What if two teams are good at playing defensively and just need to wait till a few resets on cooldowns to get something done? What if a marauder team needs to wait till the next bloodthirst to get a kill? I don't understand why tests came to a 5minute duration before outside interference takes over.

Will bolster be active in all arena warzone type matches or just limited to non-ranked matches?

Can you do Solo and/or grouped Arenas @ level 55 without having it be Ranked?
May the Force be with you.

How many rounds will each Arena warzone be? Best of 1? Best of 3? Best of 5?

Really looking forward to checking them out!

If you think removing 8v8 Ranked PVP is due to the lack of players doing it;

Why aren't you removing Nightmare modes off of PVE? On #TOFN we clearly have more ranked games than people doing nightmare modes every night.

You're making no sense Alex.

I want nightmare modes removed in next "MAJOR PVE PATCH". You're literally throwing PVPers down off the cliff.

Just a hypothetical, I'm sure you guys thought about this, as there are other hybrids out there that float in between two roles.
that s a good point.

Could be applied to Carolina Parakeet specs too, both tank and dps spec?

Only thing I can think is this doesn't really seem to be the massive improvement on current PvP. I cant see how this will get PVE players into PvP or why current PvP players will be uber excited about simply having 4 man death matches over the current maps?

Just not seeing why this is so amazing? Or how it will save PvP?
