May not happen, especially for organised teams. I enjoy swtor PvP but the GW2 PvP is a lot better (after playing it in the beta weekends) especially with the WvW aspect. Personally I'm going to try and do both but we'll see what happens.

This. Oh I agree with a lot of the other sentiments, but really in the end what I quoted is the biggest reason for me. It's also the reason that after 4 seasons of putting up with it that arena got old as well. I rolled a specific class with a specific spec in order to play in a specific manner that I find enjoyable (both in PvP AND PvE. There is a whole game you know, not just one factor of it).

Why aren't you playing ranked PvP matches?

If you are I don't really want to know, but it seems like few are.
I can't play ranked PVP matches. My guild doesn't have a full 8 person PVP team. BioWare made it so that we can't queue for Ranked WZ's solo.

Why do I not play ranked PvP? Because I'm a Deception Assassin and nobody wants me in their group.

Love playing ranked matches, only have 1 other person in my guild that pvp's. So until they offer solo queueing for ranked wz's I dont really play them.

Edit.

Let's be honest, most people who want solo queue ranked don't want competition, they want fast and easy way to get top pvp gear.
Oh please, how much will the population have dwindled by then? You really think cross server queuing is the great white hope for PvP? We said that about rated, and look what a massive disappointment they are.

And LOL at "OMG they want fast PvP gear". So what? Gear shouldn't be a factor in the outcome of PvP, so fast and easy gear can only make PvP better. How does solo = no competition. Our current system is the one with no competition. Solo just means you have to be more dynamic in how you play. You can't just roll a full team full of FOTM and expect to be top dog. You have to learn to play with different people playing different classes and specs. If anything, it is YOU who wants no competition.

Ranked warzones were over-rated. I don't play because I don't see the need to. You really get nothing out of them except a worthless number that really says nothing about you. All those who cried that ranked zones were needed now don't play most of the time. Bioware could have used the time and resources to make more improvements to pvp as a whole rather than create this ranked fiasco.

I would rather see them focus on actually balancing the classes instead of catering to this ranked BS. I mean, considering how few the ranked zones pop I think they should not even worry about season 1 for a while.

so you want the only way for BM team to get warhero is fighting vs full augmented warheroes?
you are sadist.
================
Ranked wzs must give only rank( and maybe twice money of normal wz-to pay for stims)
Now ranked is not ranked. Its pugs farming wh.
Stupid guys didnt learn at school. They cant see that lose in ranked is equal to win in ordinary if we speaking about comms.
poor sheeps.

i for one believe that there is a large enough player base to have a decent ranked matching system if they would make it x server, however even with the inflated servers same server is very odd . we either face the best of the best team and get stomped, or we faceroll some of the lower teams/pug teams...with xserver it will have a greater number of "average" teams, and a greater number of bad teams, and even a greater number of "top dog" teams. this will ensure more even competition across the board. and eliminate the see saw of faceroll/getfacerolled aspect that it has right now, i truly hope that with season one comes xserver, for rateds!
