I have been advocating this for a while. It really is this simple. Give us the role on the PvP queue system then you can have solo queues for Ranked PvP.

Give us a Prestige rating system based off medals earned in WZs. Make medals move in 10s for bronze, silver and gold. A points make up for medals such as 8 points for 75k and 15 for 300k. 8 points per defender category and 9 per attacker point category. 2 points for 2k defense, 10 for 10k in 1 life and 13 for 50k. Earning

Then use prestige to match players in WZs. Prestige is only earned after level 50. So when you have two brand new 50's one valor 1 and the other valor 50 both are still in mostly recruit gear but niether has any prestige and would not face any WH geared players. This closes the gap of RG-BM-WH

So then we use Prestige for a bracketing in PvP. Bracket 1 is 0-1300, bracket 2 is 1301-2500 and bracket 3 2501+

When it comes to Ranked PvP you would still have a team ranking based on win loss but in the case of PuGs the teams overall prestige can be converted to being a team ranking for matchup purposes.

The best for the PvP community would be if they forced all solo queuers to face 8-man ranked teams so they can learn one or two things from the big boys.

So you are an unsocial freak if you don't have at least 7 friends that play swtor and are also all online and available at the same time? Interesting theory. Oh btw, I believe that's what ranked wz's are for...or don't the big boys let you play with them?

The irony of calling someone playing a Star Wars based MMO an "unsocial freak"...

I'm pretty sure you described 70% of the games population whether grouped up or not.

You mean I'm not allowed to PUG stomp with my superior team composition just because you can't make friends? I don't see why I should have to wait 2 minutes longer for a queue pop just because no one wants to group up with bads. The best thing this game could have is if one could queue a ranked team in normal warzones (ranked queue takes forever to pop and we are often busy in normal wz anyway so we miss the pops). Through tough opposition the bad PUGs will learn to better themselves. They have a chance to see how the big boys do it so they can learn and see that you must have at least 7 friends online before you can PvP.

Love how Theo calls them "Big Boys". This isn't the NFL big guy, it's pixel combat. Lets stop pretending this validates you in any way as a big boy, unless you're the typical sweaty fat guy playing the mmo.
