Players will now be separated into three level brackets for normal Warzone play: 10 – 29, 30 – 54, and level 55. Ranked Warzones now requires level 55.
So...mid level PUGs can get matched against Optimized Elite WH geared premades? Am i getting that correct?

What you are missing is the bolster effect. The game will bolster lower players up, and higher players DOWN in stats to make them even. My full EWH gear will not make a lick of difference other than the set bonus.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

Then form a group. He was right.
All warfare is based on deception • If his forces are united, separate them • If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near • A leader leads by example not by force

Bolster will work off of gear level and not player level so its not going to be what you all think it will be like. The only issue is players who have been 50 for a while will have quite the advantage over a lowbie who never pvps and has no clue what is going on.

Not everybody has the time or feels like making a group.. You have a lot of casuals in this game that like just hoping into a fun random fight. If you put 2 ques for single and group you just fixed the problem... We can all play what we whant...

Oh and enough with get a group. It just make you people look like *******. You think you can get all the people that join a game teams? Let's say i get a team and then stomp on other pugs *** is that? PVP? No... Does not matter if you stomp or get stomped its bad as hell.

Noy onlt that teams are formed from experenced people who are going to STOMP over the casual player... Gear and skill... Yeah now give me the "LTP" comment.

I just wanna point out that "premades" are limited to only 4 players in anything other than Ranked WZ's, which I assume you're not doing. Even as a solo player, you have an equally good of a chance of being paired with a "premade" as anyone else does.

WZ's are a lot like HM Ops - not everyone should be doing them. If you really are getting stomped that bad, maybe start a new toon and play in the 1-whatever bracket until you start to learn the WZ's. I didn't start with HM/NiM Ops...
