That's about how I understood it to work. It also seemed like the matchmaking with groups of 5+ players may have resulted in a lot of games with badly mismatched team sizes.

Well, PVP has never been a high priority with BW anyway, their protestations to the contrary notwithstanding.

Just take a look at the mess that is Ilum. The Devs aren't doing handsprings to get that fixed now are they?

I was never a fan of ranked warzones or gear with rating requirements, but I imagine this is (and has already, it appears) going to cause an uproar.. more so because it is a day before the patch.

Kind of ironic seeing as they made a big deal about giving us enough notice of 1.2's arrival date.

Gonna be upsetting to many. Its really to bad, only real thing i was looking forward to was some competitive ways to enjoy and track PvP.

This may not seem like it yet, but this will be a massive blow to the subscription base especially with two other big competitors set to begin beta testing and retail releases just around the corner.

Obviously nobody wants to play a broken ranking system but letting everyone believe they were going to get a working system addition right up until hours before it was supposed to be delivered is bad business and goes against what was promised at Pax this year with regards to them not promising things they cannot deliver.

Not yet ready to quit, but definately not a happy customer after hearing this latest let down.

Thank god. This was a good call. Speaking from someone who did actually test the rated WZ's, you would have had a lot more outrage from PvPers had it actually gone through. I applaude the fact that you decided to not put it in in the current state. It means that you have actually been listening to some of us.

I'm hoping that the next decision will include a better test of the system by pvpers. We are really looking forward to ranked PvP, we are only so vocal because we want the playing field to be fair and properly worked over so the season is decided by skill and not randomness and exploiting.

Wow. Really? You are unsubbing because the devs took a long hard look at the feature, a feature they obviously REALLY wanted to get in and they make the hard but mature decision to hold it back so they can perfect it?

Would you have been happier if they had pushed the broken system with tomorrow's patch instead?
Or would you have preferred 1.2 to have been delayed completely for this feature? Because those were the only two solutions to this.
