It takes time to meet good players in pugs and convince them to form a group together in order to progress to the next level of PvP in this game. Concurrently, It takes time to build synergy between those people and gain ability as a team.
IDK how it was in wow, but getting 100+ people in daoc to do the toughest PVE was no where near as challenging as getting 8 elite players with the right classes in this game on at the same time to do rateds. Even getting good players to do the same content with 50+ players wasn't that tough. 8 Elite players with the perfect classes in this game to even stand a chance is pretty tough to get on at the same time consistently. That is why there is only 5-8 or so guilds that que regularly for ranked.

I was refering to HSP kicking my ranked pug in rateds btw, I think facing them is always fun in regs because I know we can put up a good fight :P It all comes down to who the other 4 are on both sides. Pugging against them in rateds was not so fun. I knew the 8 on my side... and 4 of them... lolol

on a side note: i think the server is in a good state, and I like that there seem to be a decent number of good teams out there, hope that I can get the 8 together to make one as well.

Yep. Every team only needs ONE of a given class (if any at all). It's unfortunate. I've said this in the pvp forums, the very nature of rated as it stands now makes it its own worst enemy. I love my sniper but I feel like I've hit a developmental wall. It's not that I'd rock rateds - I wouldn't.

It's more like - I'm not going to get better unless I can do rateds a couple nights a week, and thats impossible. So I'm onto the next leveling project part time again.
