I will be there on Friday night, and am willing to participate in (almost) anything that helps Ranked PvP grow on our server, on either side.

I would sincerely hope that wouldn't happen. Kickball is a great way to improve your skills and is the only way solo PvPers get to try ranked. It's inherently more balanced than real ranked matches (assuming team captains do a good job of picking). I love it so much, and it would just piss me off to hear anyone was screwing it up for everyone else!

Anyone ever thought about a Republic and Empire Ranked PUG night? Use the Teamspeak or Mumble server of the hosting guild. The kickball nights I have been involved in have dwindled after 4 or 5 games so it may be a way to keep the games flowing longer. Just a thought.

It becomes more difficult to balance when involving Empire and Republic in my opinion.

Simply because there is just a larger Empire presence in Ranked right now. If it turns into a purely PUG style Ranked night then Empire will dominate as they've done in the past due to more Imperial players being exposed to Ranked and true 8v8 PvP.

Just my thoughts. I'm not saying no, I'm just saying it sounds like a recipe for discouraged Republic players who haven't been put into Ranked yet. It would be more beneficial for them to play with their own Faction and talk about strategies and things of that nature in a Voice Chat while focusing on basic Ranked fundamentals without stressing the players out too much.

Also, 4-5 Ranked matches in one night is more than enough for me. Especially if they are some of the longer Ranked matches.

I'll join on Roean (scoundrel healer) or Phayah (kinetic hybrid). Keira'athena said he'd bring his awesome vanguard if its not Friday.
