The ranked teams that exist today are a large portion of the community that would/will be doing arenas. Listen to this recent live stream from 9:00 to 10:10. "If you are a ranked warzone player you will really like it" referring to 2.4. How will we "really like" that you removed them? Beyond ridiculous.

So, the new ranked queues are able to read the player's skill tree and determine what spec they are.

1) Is this based solely on number of points in a tree? i.e. - Whichever tree has the most points is the character's spec for purposes of queueing? If so, what happens if someone has an equal number of points in a healing or tanking tree as they do in a dps tree?

2) Could this same code that reads the skill tree and determines spec be a precursor to a skill tree saving/switching QoL enhancement?

It will be a bitter pill if the answer is "no".

Neat stuff, the only thing I am not sure is that arenas and the normal objective based warzones are in the same queue. Sure, some don't mind to have both there, but some might perfer one over the other, so it should be peossible to select them (maybe like the flashpoints in the groupfinder, were you can exclude what you don't like).

Haven't read the whole thread, so I guess someone has surely said something about the last picture. Seems to me like we getting another huttball map, this time on Quesh. I love that idea and look forward to that. With the soldiers in the background, maybe this is even an open world huttball really on Quesh not just an warzone that looks like Quesh?

Try to convince EricMusco to show up to Outlaw's Den so I can give him lessons on memorization.
