I am not sure if this is your first mmo but anytime a company uses the term pre-season or beta etc.. it normally their way of testing the waters without having major repercussions or backlash on their development. My issue is not that it is "pre-season" but the fact that we have been in pre-season forever now with absolutely NO CHANGES to ranked pvp. If it was truly pre-season we would see some gradual changes to ranked pvp and/or rewards especially after 6 months. In stead we are left with the word "pre-season" which keeps the the unintelligent overly content bad pvpers safe at night.
It certainly is my first MMO in terms of being so involved with it, and in no way am I calling out you, nor LD-50. I'm just saying, the slate is gonna be wiped clean if they ever decide to come out with Season 1, in which I would *understand* people not wanting to lose their ranking. I agree BW needs to do sometime to spice things up, PvP is becoming stale for myself, and I've definitely seen a decline in some of the top players -- which is sad and unfortunate. I really do wish that PD would do ranked more.

OK... we have a JC PVP Mumble server. Whisper me in game for info as I am not posting it here publicly. This is all to use for ranked, unranked, etc. I have 50 slots as of now and can adjust if needed. If it gets abused or someone is doing a $#*&#, I'll ban them.

It's pre-season.

Whoops, did I just use logic?

Now, if it weren't pre-season and there were something to aim for -- I'd definitely agree with people, but as it stands there is absolutely no point of a rank at this point other than being "good" in pre-season (which obviously people get off to, somehow.)
I don't think to many people that are already over 2400 really care, some that are at like 2300 understandably will only want to queue with winning teams. It would be cool to get a rating up over 3k though, how many people can claim that.

Good games last night, everyone who was running should continue doing so, even if Devil isn't able to organize there's no reason you guys can't form an ops and find some captains. The same goes for pub side I'm sure all of you, imp and pub, know enough about strats, marking, calling targets etc to effectively run teams. If enough people do this then ranked will work as intended with the ELO system, higher ranked teams will face higher ranked teams and vice versa.

IMO the hardest thing to obtain in this game is a ranking over 2200, and the reward for it is a set of armour that looks the same and is red, and a mount woo! That is one of the biggest failures of the game there isnt any good ways to display your accomplishments/epeen aside from a couple of mounts and red armour, its baffling to me considering loot is pretty much what drives most players to play (aside from relationships made in game of course ) You can obtain a full set of best in slot PVE gear if you have the mats/credits, most of the current PVE sets need some tinkering to get them right anyways, so in theory a guy that has never run TFB/EC could have a better set of gear than someone who spent some time figuring out the encounters :P

Cross server is not coming anytime soon if ever, I'm paraphrasing but one of the dev's said in a interview they really don't have the tech for it and the "mega servers" should have a high enough population to support a ranked community, but unfortunately there isnt really much of an interest in it because there is nothing really worth while being rewarded to players. They would need to make some sort of a ranked system that encouraged players to que up, possibly a weekly that rewarded you for games played and a new token for uber looking pvp gear/weapons and have a portion of the gear not require any sort of ranking and i think people might show up, who knows, or possibly remove the weekly for pvp since WH gear is so cheap now, and have that reward for 6-9 ranked games played

also this needs to happen as well

Hah! If I'm not going to be respectful, I just don't hit the PTT button. My guildies would be shocked if they heard some of the things I neglected to say "over the air"!

Haha... well this mumble server also doesn't have to be during "ranked" evening hours. If you want to make it more of a social pvp community that many can access, i'm good for that too. This is just a tool to help the overall pvp community anyway it can.

If you guess... you'll be as accurate as anyone else.
