There is no risk vs reward. Unless you can earn greater rewards in the Group queue than in the Solo queue.
I always read your posts because you have a high signal to noise ratio but the above is nonsense. The reason you queue 4-man vs solo is because it is more fun to play with your buddies who are in voice chat, not because the in game rewards (commendations, XP, credits) are greater for one mode vs the other.

Forcing groups to play groups instead of grouping against pugs = devaluing pvp? Get lost, scrub.

Can you comment on what rating is needed for the rewards so we can rush to obtain it before they go out?

if you queue rated and put forth a reasonable effort you will not be playing with or against these folks. DUCY?

Works amazingly well for LOL (League of Legends)... which aside from having the epeen meter of your individual rank offers no other reward... At. All.

They have a 5v5 rank, a 3v3 rank, and a solo queue rank. If a game that is entirely focused around pvp seems to do just fine with that model, why is this a bad thing again?

So, if 8 Empire players queue for solo ranked, and 1 Republic player also queues, will the Republic player get stuck on the bench for hours while the matchmaker puts the 8 Empire players into E v. E matches over and over, or is it allowed to mix sides on the same team, to make sure everyone in the queue gets a match?

I would still like an answer to the question about whether or not the pitfalls of a never ending balance crusade when Arena was added to other MMOs is going to be avoided in this game.

The only two ways I can see to avoid it is to either ignore imbalance in Arena OR make adjustments to a buff/debuff system that would apply only to Arena to correct imbalance.

Any changes to the overall game for the sake of Arena balance will likely turn out to be toxic and never ending.
