I think once they let people queue for ranked with <8 ppl this will change. As Gamblor said, it is quite hard to organise 8 geared people that can commit to playing several warzones without any sort of break. Also, it isn't always about comms. A lot of players pvp for the fun of pvping, and most of us prefer to pvp with friends/guildies. As much as I love doing ranked wz's, I'd prefer to play 4-5 normals per hour than 1-2 ranked. I have to work during the day, and I have 3 kids to sort out at night, so my playing time is usually limited to 10pm -12pm, so the more wz's I can play the better. Not all of us have all day to play....

I like going up against the "top" guilds in PuGs, really test there ability and team work. We get rewarded even when we lose so it makes no difference to me. I say bring on more of the top players into the PuGs so i can test "my" skill against the servers best.

Agreed - being put into a random group and facing a team of either NS PuGs or SnX PuGs is a real test of teamwork. There's no voicechat and you all have to rely on one another in order to win.

And I believe just this afternoon, Mjrat, we, a group of random solo queuer's, beat you guys in an Ancient Hypergate right at the last minute by like 20 odd points (if that). Those are the matches that people tend to enjoy.

If you're the same Nystira that used to play on Harbinger at launch, assuming you haven't gotten rusty over the months, you don't need to test your skills.

The thing is though both the imps and the pubs have premades running and you have benefited from premades at the imp side as well (remember the rail shot fest nightmare two days ago?).

I was just showing you rob, the same consideration you showed us when you walked around in warzones or sat in the corner refusing to play or even contribute to your team because of your views on people pvping as a 4 man team. You have been nothing but a disadvantage to any team you were on and now suddenly you have found the forums and have a place to raise your views and now we are meant to care or listen? I think of you as nothing better than a **** in the bed.

I don't know what your talking about in "giving me crap" for having people level my toons. I really don't remember speaking to you other then your rants and raves about you deserve ranked warzones and we shouldn't go out on weekends. But if you did don't stress I didn't remember this conversation, but in my defense I haven't been unemployed for 2 years from breaking my back at the pillow factory, I have been employed by the Australian Army for the last 5 years and had only gotten back from an 8 month deployment to Afghanistan at the start of this year, so cut me some slack.
