Your removing 8v8 because you didn't support them enough? You should have realized that things like an endless pre-season and the lack of updates killed it. Had there been more support, more players would have queued.

The average of your team's rating. In addition, if the matchmaker can't find a team close to your team's average rating the range of acceptable rating will slowly increase.

I'm loving the changes. However, I do not think there will be a lot of upset players when losing 8v8 ranked. On most servers you have 3-6 teams queing at any given night. So you have maybe 40 players max doing ranked pvp; out of a server population of 1,000 or so plus. I don't know the exact number just seems like a smart idea on Bioware part to take it out!

However, my question is:
Will there be any type of cross server ranked ques as well, or will we be facing people on our server all the time? I can imagine the higher ranked players ;lets say 2400+ would be facing the same people over and over?

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG Hutball maps!

Sorry if this question comes accross as thick but I'm skim reading on my phone so I might have missed it. Are these arenas just for level 55 (ranked?) or are they going to be available as non-ranked/under 55 too?

Thanks Alex!

Will solo ranked Q and group ranked Q have separate ratings?

Apologize to the developers right now.

How dare you ask logical questions on the SWTOR forums.

Is this role selection working in the same way as the PVE Group Finder Tool where I as an Assault specced Vanguard can either queue as a Tank or a DPS or as a Commando Arsenal I can queue both as a Healer and a DPS.

Or will the selection be based on the current spec that I have slotted before clicking on the queueing button?

If the selection works like the PVE Group Finder Tool, how will this system ensure that selected Healer are genuine Healer, etc?

If you think RWZs were happening before you weren't paying attention, and once they add 4v4 ranked queues it would be a completely dead system. Removing them at this point is housecleaning.
You are a funny man with your ignorance. You're probably on one of the servers from which guilds transfered away to other servers where ranked was/is actually happening.
