Best of 3, to me, means 3 total - first to 2. First to 3 would be 5 total/best of 5. So, I'm not saying you are wrong, just that I am confused

He's not gonna bother.

- Higher ups told him not to answer anything about it. Even though he stated he'll answer all questions regarding his blog.

- He hasn't anything in defence.

- He thought we would be happy removing content instead of improving content.

Whatever the reason, he's determined to remove Ranked 8v8 than doing what the community wants. And that's to have two different PVP gamestyles, objective and deathmatch both in competitive PVP.

Tell EricMusco that I will be waiting for him in Outlaw's Den tonight(PoT5 Server) at 11:30PM Eastern.

I challenge him to a 1v1. If he looks at his keyboard, I should easily be able to defeat him.

Or if he prefers the hoth starship graveyard, I will face him there as well.

Hi Devs,

Can you please explain how Warzones will work with no ranked? Will PvP Guilds be able to queue a full group of 8 for normal Warzones? Previously you could only queue a full group for Ranked, but in removing that, will you be opening this up for Standard Warzones.

I see two major problems with both answers.

Firstly: No, you will not allow a group of 8 to queue for normal warzones.

What is the point of PvP guilds practicing, playing and queuing for warzones then, if they cannot run a full ops group? Have you not then completely taken away any incentive for PvPers to participate in Warzones?

Secondly: Yes, you will allow a group of 8 to queue for normal warzones.

Won't this just encourage PvP guilds to stomp all over PUG groups, and essentially see any unguilded players completely dissuaded from playing normal Warzones?

--

I really like the look of Arenas, however I would greatly appreciate a response to the above, with attention to detail on how you will be mitigating the fallout from removing Ranked Warzones. Hopefully you have a solution to both of the above, because neither scenario is ideal.

Personally I think you should LEAVE Ranked Warzones as a part of the Game, thus allowing 8v8 Ops Groups to continue to queue against each other when and how they please. You can still roll out everything you intend to without causing a significant negative impact on the PvP community at large.

He is not allowed to reveal his identity.
