For those that still wish to do Ranked WZs

OK.. with Uncensored's announcement of q'ing nearly everyday, it appears that a lot of people are thinking that ranked is dead. I sure hope not. I know personally, I'm a PVE person first and I have raid nights as a priority. That's why I am not doing pug ranks all the time. I also end up healing on Cheerleader for other raid groups in our guild who may be short heals. The pug ranked has been so much fun simlpy because this is an MMO... we play it (well a lot of us) for the social aspect. I've met some fun people through these. OK.. nuff said on this...

I still want to do ranked WZs simple as that. I don't define my toons by their rank #... for me it's PVE progression. PVP is a ton of fun though and I spend a lot of time doing it. With Unc "q'ing", I'm going to presume guilds like LD50, US, PD, RSB, HYRDA, and others will do the same. There are still many of us who are solid PVPers that are not simply in a guild designed for ranked teams. I know in RG, we have some of the top PVE'ers in the game. Not all of them PVP, but some do and some are really good. In RG, rarely are we ever able to put a respectable ranked team together, so I'm still very open and interested in doing Pug groups. Will we get ROFLstomped by some guilds,.sure, but w/e. If the ranked community is going to progress beyond the regulars, we'll have to q when the top teams are q'ing too. It is what it is. Hopefully the pug community will take a step towards a compromise in continuing to q with the hopes that the premades will too. A request would be if you're part of a stacked teams that sn't available or your guild doesn't have enough people on... join a pug. Don't let your PVP ego get in the way. Show that you are elite and help a pug team. There are too many out there that only q with specific people... which is sad... and then they brag about their numbers. I think we all know one person in specific that I am referring to. Haha.

I'm more than glad to coordinate pug groups on the /pubpvp channel if people are still interested... but I can't do it CM style as I have PVE responsibilities too. The other challenge for me is that no one likes a Commando Trooper (we will be the flavor of the month one day... I promise you that). We are not built for 1v1... and to tie into the other thread that is going that talks about it... you put me against a similarly geared/skilled mele and I'm toast, but I do know how to survive and I think that separates the strong commando dps'ers from the bad. My numbers speak for themself as they are respectable when compared to the flavors out there and other commandos. I also have Cheerleader (mix of WH and EWH) who can either Bubblestun or Salv heal. I am also more than willing to join ranked groups on the imp side too. I have a full WH Smash Jugg (Redskín) that I created.

So... where do we go from here. I am not certain the mumble server that Bad Rep has so nicely offered will be available... would need to check on that... but I'm also more than willing to buy a server in vent or mumble as a pure JC PVP community tool because it's definitely needed to have any shot at winning a ranked match.

If you are interested in continuing doing ranked wzs, let me know or reply here. I can be found in game on most evenings and I spend most of my time on Devíldog, Cheerleader, or imp-side Redskín.

My last request and this would be to the premade top-tier ranked teams. Don't be jerks. Simple as that. How often does it annoy a person playing when a team has won the game (like CW for example) and the team that's lost turtles to just get D medals and they are only to be attacked and potentially three capped. How often have we seen medal farming in Voidstar. Be a good sport and when a team has more or less surrendered, respect that. Now... If a team gives up before the game is over... that's utter crap and worthy of a little smacking around. It drives me crazy seeing a team turtle or give up when the game isn't even over. No room for quitters.

Sorry for the wall-o-text... let me know who is still interested.

I just started a secondary raid group for my guild, so things may be difficult, but if you need a healer/tank/derpy-smash on Wednesdays, Fridays, or Saturdays for rateds I'd tag along (assuming PD isn't fielding a team then)

Cool deal Vas... thanks for chiming in. I know most of us in RG raid on M and Th, with some occassional stuff in between, so we overlap well. BTW... if you ever need a sage healer for PVE, let me know. Cheerleader is in a mix of campaign/dread and has done everything... insert joke here.

Hey Devil,

Great post, I am still available to guard off nodes in pug ranked. I really enjoy the social aspect of the pug groups, I think it is good for the server. Judging by the people we were getting in the PUG ranked, if we split it up and made solid comps I think we can give most guilds a good game.

However the captain's picking was one of my favorite parts. So if we set up a trade system after the picks, I think we can still run pugs are few nights of the week. I know most people likely raid, it seems like wednesdays were the days when we got the most people to show, so we should keep that night going.

Cheers,
Hobi

Thanks for chiming in all. This might start a little slow as we are revamping things, but I'll look into getting our own vent or mumble set up. I do agree Wednesdays seem to work best. I know I'll be on tonight. We can also set Barbie's priviledges to listen mode if she ends up wanting to talk to much :P

I'll continue to use /pubpvp.

One last thing I've always been confused about. Why do people go to PVE servers if they only want to PVP? Never understood that.

I'm on GMT time so usually when these pug rateds kick off I'm offline.

BUT saying that if they ever fire up early some night and you need a Jugg tank I'd most likely make myself available.
