Premades are ruining non-ranked warzones

lol I thought of this thread the other day when I PUGed and my team did a perfect CW. 3 cap the entire time, and it was all purely PUG and typing.

Look. I have been rolled by premades, but sometimes being bad will still be being bad even without facing a premade. I hope their matchmaking improvements they make also allows those who are that bad to just face each other regardless of premade or not. I know I have been on those teams before myself. I am all for the really bad facing each other and thinking they are really good.

OMG this is still going?

I'm not even going to read any of it. I can't imagine how you people with such short attention spans that you can't even bother to learn your class properly, can spend months arguing in this pointless thread.

I guess y'all have SADD (Selective Attention Deficit Disorder) or something. The attention this thread is getting is mind-blowingly staggering.

Maybe, just maybe - And I will admit I'm speculating here - it's an issue(tm) for a lot of players.

I have better gear but am still bad at times. And there are worse than me out there. It's less obvious sometimes.

You will still have bads that don't know what they're doing in a WZ but this time they're be in WH and they will still blame their losses on premades.

The only time I have a problem with it is when its a full premade. The game should never queue two full groups together like that. There is a guild on my server that every time I play against them its all 8 of their guild. I don't think I have ever seen them queue without doing that and its starting to get annoying.

I get a huge laugh at the people who act all stuck up and make fun of people that want a decent matching system. You people are so funny. Do you want new warzones? more gear? less lagspikes? world pvp?

If you answer yes then you want more money coming into the game and if you want more money coming into the game you want more players.

This system is bad for new 50s and for casual players. This is the majority of players in any thriving mmo (I say thriving because as subs get low enough and a game dies then it is more hardcore and this is what you people want lol!)

It is not a skill thing. I, for example, want to premade. In mmos with premade matching I make GREAT premades. I have been a pvp guild leader in a couple best server group pvp guilds in other games. I like premades. I hate pugstomping and I refuse to do it frequently (only when drinking lol). Sure I refuse to lead a guild anymore as I'm older and can't stand drama but I'd still like to premade.

What many people want, including myself, is more near even matches.

What I want isn't even important though. What is important is development money. If you want this then you must make a system that is not extremely punishing to casuals and noobs (you know the people that you once were).

I really believe if it wasn't for people like you then pvp in mmos would be nearly (well maybe not nearly but not as far off lol) as popular as fps games are. This would bring more competition, better class balance, more classes, more game choices, and much more pvp than us mmo pvp'rs currently have.

Think about this.
