Thanks to everyone who participated on 12/30/12 was a very successfull turn out we had 4 teams going at one point. We're gonna try to make this a regular thing everyday at 8 pm eastern just /cjoin pubpvp . Everyone is welcome to participate , you can message me in game ( combatmedicjr / rippernine ) for details or ask in channel for info. Let's keep this a positive thing , no crap talking and hopefully other teams participating will understand we're introducing new players to ranked and will not "pug stomp" so let's keep it clean. Thanks again

Definitely working out the kinks you can say...but hope to get a solid team together soon.

It's good to see some community initiative going on.

I was about to post my planned thread about organizing ranked warzones, but if things are already going well, I think we can keep things like they are. I don't want this initiative to lose it's momentum with having too much planning to do. Devil told me he was pugging ranked with Moonrunner, but their team was full so I couldn't play and ended up doing reg wz with folks from Keller's Void.

I want to ask though, what are the "official" channels that you guys have created? Ideally there should only be one per faction and after some time, people will get used to it and will just have to ask in that channel if they want to form a group or want to know if other teams are queing etc. From what I read CM created pubpvp so that would be it for pub side. I guess we just need imppvp now or anything else that Rynis would've made?

Depending on what I hear when I'll be playing with the pug group, I might still salvage part of my post for the organized ranked wz thread and make somekind of guide for the new players.

By pugging he means filling in the spots that Unicorn couldn't man, so they would have an ideal team to face off against general chat pugs.

It was a **** move on their part not to bring in some sandbags of their own to level the playing field, but I guess winning meant that much to them.

Hey just as an FYI to all, the group that we have been putting together every night has been playing for the last 2 weeks or so. We only fill spots with other guildies when some people are not available. One night we pugged Cuattro from QQ but for the most part its a Republic Strikes Back/Red Five group. We went 5-1 or 6-1 last night.

I'm going to echo this 100%. There has been a lot of effort and discussions made by many across many guilds on the subject of how to improve ranked PVP. The top PVP guilds have been asking for this sort of thing and we finally have it moving forward... so what happens.... we form a number of PUG ranked groups. There were tons of guilds representing... a number of familiar faces... and a number of new faces... a number of solid alts. Heck... each team ultimately dropped one of their best players and picked up a lesser known PUG to help balance teams, get more involved, give more experience to people, and make a 4th team.

The night started out great. It was a ton of fun. Even one of my guildees remarked that he would have a hard time disliking someone now because of the fun he had running with them. After a round or two, teams were rebalanced, people traded, etc... in efforts to make teams more competitive with one another. Some teams won more than they lost and others lost more than they won. It's going to happen, but it was a huge success...UNTIL...

Devil stated he was getting a PUG together to join the fun. It turned out to be a premade of 4 Uncensored and 4 Unicorn Stampede and it was quite an optimal group. None of the teams won and some dropped from q'ing because of frustration. I know my team went late and after getting this pre-made 2 times in a row, people were frustrated and we called it a night.

This goes back to my post in the other thread about why people don't want to q. It's stuff like this that discourages people from doing it. No matter what they say (and I've heard they said stuff) Imp Unc and US knew exactly what they were doing because they were told what we were doing by people that were playing in my group. So no excuses on this. I have always been a big supporter of Uncensored... but I think I'd like to put an * and say that "most" Uncensored are solid, respectful, and decent players who are simply out there to play strong, play optimally, and have good competition. Then there are a handful of their imp guildies that really gave them a bad name last night and frankly gave them a bad reputation on top of what they already had. I'm not saying all imps Uncensored... I still hold people like Ilke, Jal, Taco, Blunti, and Taco in high regard. It was not them last night unless they were on an alt that I didn't know was theirs. Maybe I'm picking more on Uncensored more than Unicorn... and I apologize because US is just as guilty.... I just hold Uncensored to a higher level of expectation than I do other guilds.

I want to thank all the people who came out, organized, participated, made suggestions, etc to make this happen. Was it perfect? No... but it was fun... it was a great step in the right direction... it built new friendships with people... it dispelled perceptions about some people for the better... it laid the foundation for more of this in the future... and maybe it showed a DPS commando can compete with the best of them :P I'm hoping that this will evolve and continue to build as I think this could be fun and an amazing model that other servers might want to follow.

Thanks again guys... had a great time.

Honestly, people didn't expect this to happen?
