Glad to see people posting they had fun , let's keep this a positive thing. We can't police who q's for ranked and when lol so hopefully no one was discouraged by the losses to uncensored / unicorns and will participate again. I won't be on tonight and not sure about tomorrow as i will be out of town so if someone wants to get this going tomorrow they're welcome to do so.

The main idea here is to introduce players to ranked and the environment hopefully other teams will understand this and be respectful , we can't ask a certain guild / group not to q up when we were doing this event but hopefully impside will follow suit so there are more ranked pugs to play and introduce our new faces to some evenly matched competitive games. Happy new years everyone.

Right lets clarify this. I "Xilriso" from Unicorn Stampede formed the ImpPvP channel which is then copied by Combatmedic and xfered to a Pub Version. So i find this out and later that night Neb comes into our mumble and asks if we can get a group together to queue up. I pug in our ImpPvP channel and pick up Devil and Moonrunner, now lets put this bluntly. 2 of the people we had in our group have hit 50 within the last 2 weeks on their toons so I really don't see what all the fuss is about. We admittedly had more people from the same guild in a group but for anyone who suggests we rolled this and stomped people is utterly delusional. We won like 6 or 7 and lost 2. And those wins were close for many of those games with a 3-3 huttball for example. For people who suggest we "stack" teams . grow up and learn how to take a loss for a change. Unfortunately we do not have anywhere near the base of PvPrs to pug from that you reps do so next time don't bother asking us to form a group then continually coming into our mumble and ask us to bring undergeared scrubs into our team so you can then go back to stomping us.

Seriously guys, learn to take a loss now and then without crying about it. I respect many of you as players but you don't see me making forum posts every time I get beat in ranked or otherwise.

I had a fun time doing this, I hope we can have more nights with just as many or more teams queuing.

never saw the <uncensored/unicorns> team, but my team did run into the imp and pub versions of <lucky7> and the <repstrikesback/red5> team. we dominated the <lucky7s> and got dominated by the other. dunno what's up with the matchmaking. I'm convinced if there isn't a similar team available at that moment, they just put you up against whomever is available. anyway, we didn't have a guardian or even trooper tank or a combat sent, so we were pretty fuct against the properly composed team. still, it was a fun night, and how could the lucky7s have felt to run into a pug full of ppl prolly as good as their best couple? iunno.

definitely worth trying again. would like to see the rep strikes back/red5 and the lucky7 guys jump into the lottery with us next time.

edit: what is the imp channel called so I can put my imps in it?
meh

We went 5-1 or 6-1 last night.
FYI you had a pub group that did the same thing

Unless your going to train everyone into being a pro-player, or let PUGS win games so they don't take the losses, I do not see how this will work. Seems to me this "queue" issue is more of a game issue than a server issue. Even if this works for a little, it is only a matter of time before certain teams start to stand out and stomping others, the queues will die again and the cycle continues. Nothing personal, just my .02. If it works, more power to you, no matter the person or guild, I am all for supporting PvP in this game. Good luck
