Ranked warzone clarification

I'm making this post for two reasons , first reason is i log into combatmedic today to send myself some creds pubside and first thing i see is PJ-b sittin in general saying lethal dose fifty doesn't q ranked anymore they're scared of uncensored. False pj-b the fear you're thinking of comes from your guilds fear of us (lethal dose fifty). We always try to form up at 8-9pm eastern minus tuesday which is pve night. Yesterday and few times before some of our premades ran into 8 unicorn stampede members in the same regular warzone , and also seen the same trend from tryhards united. So here comes the second reason why i made this post , are any other guilds q'ing up and would like to share what time they're q'ing up at. The ranked scene is becoming a ghost town on this server which is sad cause i know a lot of us still love pvp in this game and ranked is the only way to avoid having to carry 4 awful pugs in a regular warzone lol. Most nights we q we get no pops and get discouraged after an hour of waiting or we see uncensored for a few competitive games. I think other guilds have to pick up the attitude that if you don't play against better guilds you won't improve yourselves , the gear gap excuse is gone, you can be fully optimized war hero in a week . So hopefully some guilds with some brass in their pants will step up soon or the ranked scene will continue to be a myth.

Ps. i hope no one impside shares pj'bs views. we have a high win ratio from my experience playing uncensored and they have my respect for their continued perseverance.

I've actively tried to find us groups to play, we've even offered up our guys to play on the opposing teams, just to play matches. Winning or losing isn't really an issue, we just want to play together and not be handicapped by horrible players as we normally are in regs.

Uncensored has given us a heads up when they're queuing and I believe we've done the same, all are welcomed to do this. The ranked scene is only what we make of it, more teams queuing is only a good thing.

This post +1. Tired of being yelled at by the other team to queue for ranked when we have and nobody around to face. Come grind that .00001% upgrade that EWH is by grinding those ranked comms.

This is the most glaring problem I have seen in this game that I haven't seen in any other mmo I have done pvp in. Everyone thinks they're the best, and because of that attitude they'll never get better. Rather than losing to better players and learning, they avoid them so the little fairy tale they've built up in their mind can stay true. In other words, grow a pair and queue for ranked. You may learn a little something.

PJB doesn't really say things; it's more of a spewing of useless information and declarations of him being somewhat good (lol)

As for LD50 queue dodging: I know they wouldn't do that.

Topi and the guys are all for queuing with anyone who's online at the times they do ranked (which you can usually find listed on their site)

It's no player, guild or even all of them combined who are at fault for the lack of competitive rated warzones its Bioware who ****ed it up.

#1 There's no incentive to do ranked. There's nothing you can earn in ranked except a different color of gear, assuming you can make it to 2400, that you cannot in regs.

#2 They drove away to many players and now we don't have the population for the ranking system where teams of equal or close rank are matched up.

#3 **** is terribly unbalanced, bubble stun, smash etc

#4 There's a ton of bugs, it's way to easy to cheat/exploit. There's been no fix or even talk of how to address the problem of d/c's in rated.

Well, according to people in Unicorns. They do ALOT more PVE now than PVP.

As for Try Hard United, We only super que late at night when we know no one is queing rateds. We try to que rateds throughout the week if we get people on. We talk to Uncensored and try to get groups going, just to have friendly games.

As for LD50, some people in your guild give you a bad name. People don't want to que rateds because a few of you have big mouths and nobody wants to deal with it. It's a game to have fun, and should be that.
I for one, have no problem with a good amount of LD50 players, but a few of you....I can't stand.
