Me too. It's basically the only tool a PUG-player has to avoid constant aggravation in inbalanced matches. They are just not funny.

Trust me, I'm not bad. But pug vs premade is imbalanced by design. Every game designer knows this (Blizzard publicly acknowledged it) and the only possible reason it's still in this game must be due to population issues.

This 'skill' lies in knowing exactly what the other team members will do in certain situations. If you separate them, that 'skill' disappears. Thus this is not a 'skill' that a PUG player can ever acquire, as they are always 'separated' by definition.

With 2.4 all good solo players 55 lvl go play solo only queue ranked Arenas, so just good luck premades in long long time 55 lvl wz queue or competitive Arenas versus others premades...

Still a pretty serious problem. The fact that a full premade of 4 can be put up against any combination PUGs with 1-3 premade teams in Arena is also a disgustingly terrible matchmaking problem. Premades need their own queues and we all need Cross Realm Function.

True.

While I'm okay with leaving the queues together I really dislike any form of solo queue at all, it's simply not competitive, for the reason you just said.

Not the ones I have entered into in various games. I do not class 25 year olds as adults, they have nothing of interest that I wish to hear.

Why can't they just give us pug queues and premade queues to choose from. And why is it that they are not giving us cross server queuing? these two elements would solve so many problems we are still seeing even after 2.4
