Anyone else think that the server transfers destroyed pvp WZs? I play imperial on Drooga's Pleasure Barge and its gotten so bad that i won't even pvp anymore. Am i alone or has anyone else seen this?

You were expecting what from a PVE server?

Different servers have different faction domination,deal with it.
On the Progenitor some of the new imps are awful,so we make premades to avoid playing with them as much as possible,most of us already know who they are.I do like the new republic though,much better competition then my old server,although there is only one premade that really makes the game fun to play vs and thats Aesir(sp?) always fun playing them.

So transfer too? How is this even a thread. Clearly the queues were pretty **** to being with and that's why the opened up transfers.

As an Ebon Hawker since beta, there are plenty more matches to be had, but it seems like the refugees have a much worse skilled/unskilled ratio than the natives did before. There are certainly some decent ones, but many more who don't understand gear, alertness, strategy, coordination, etc.

In any given match now, there are at least 6 "inexperienced" players between the two teams. Interestingly, there also seem to be a lot more jerks who play closer to "griefing" than "sporting".

blah blah it's an RP server, whatever. For the ignorant, we have (well, had) a solid base of skilled players in both PVE and PVP.

Near instant warzone pops both day and night and the black hole is full of pvp.
Awesome sauce.

TBH, I think part of it comes from not knowing the people you've grown accustomed to. If I happen to queue with a bunch of people from Adraas, we have a much better time of it than if I happen to be in a group of people I don't know.

I don't know their tendencies, what they are good/bad at, and that brings the skill level down for the entire team, myself included.

Give it a few weeks, a month perhaps and there will be much better cohesion for the pugs.

The broader the population playing regularly the broader the skill distribution of those players. People are simply used to the hardcore quer's who were on the dedicated to PvP skill level who were the rpedominant remaining WZ quers pre merge. It was fully expected the level of overall competition would decline in WZ's as a result of consolidating playerbases.

Honestly I hated playing at a high level of PvP because that means playing with the exact same 7 guys against the exact same 8 guys since those are all the guys who haven't quit yet. It sounds cool when you fight someone so foten that you know their strat better than they know it themselves, and the first time you called out an inc on guys you cannot even see because you knew that's what they'll do is pretty cool, but after the 50th time you realize every game actually plays out exactly the same because it's always the same 15 other guys.

Of course on the new server I move to the general level is lower. Both side actually lose games that they should never have lost if both teams are playing at a high level, but that's actually pretty fun compared to just giving up after first 30 seconds in Alderaan because you've seen the identical scenario played out 50 times with the same result against the same guys.

People clamor 'skill' gameplay or whatever but it's actually one of the most boring things in the game. Good teams don't mess up. If they have a lead they keep it 99.9% of the time, and it sucks even when you're the team that's winning though it's considerably worse on the receiving end. Chasing the exact same healer for 10 minutes every single game is not fun.

On my new server it would be a great time to be a healer because nobody will ever try to kill you....EVER!
