Find 3 friends, queue up, and you just might get to take us on. Also since some folks have joked about me playing the "Musco" class I thought it only fair to reveal what I am playing since you can tell what the rest of my team are doing. I will be playing a Madness Sorcerer.

For the full details check my original post.

PS - I am also pretty excited for you to see what team uniforms we came up with...
You playing PTS again sometime team BW?

You're character graphics are fouled,. everyone running around with only shoulders and heads, thats it. Way to go. It's a game breaker, myself and many others I've already found cannot really play because we can't see anything!. Great work there and they couldn't just test it on high end cards could they SEe you later, I got scammed and ripped off as I subbed the night before the update, and now it's broke!!!

Even SOE or Blizz never did anything this bad. You broke the game for many, nice update

You are a fool, nothing more. Your subscription is for the live servers, to play and enjoy the live game. The test server is there for -- and exists solely for the purpose of -- testing. It isn't the 'experience-it-bugfree-before-it-goes-live' server, so don't act like it is. Wow, you found a bug on the server created for the sole purpose of finding bugs. Going to unsub over it? Good. Great. Leave. I don't ever want to see you ingame. Honestly. What made you think your pathetic rant was so important that it needed to be pointlessly split into two seperate posts?

Hello there BioWare!

Will you add leaderboards to the upcoming seasons in 2.4? A so called "Season" with nothing but a rating number seems a little bit....bad.

1. What will happen if not everyone accepts the queue?

It won't start the match without full teams on both sides, right? In WZs you usually have a chance when you are down up to 2 players, but for arenas I can imagine starting a deathmatch with even 1 person down pretty much guarantees a loss unless the full team are performing badly. With 2 players down you would need a huge skill discrepancy for the shorthanded team to win.

At the moment then it's either bugged, or this isn't how it works yet, as I have ended up solo rank queuing into several 3 vs 4 arenas.

And yes, being one man down is a serious disadvantage. So lost them all....

Ugh, that sucks. I foresee this being quite a problem if they don't fix it so the match won't start with full teams, although I imagine it'd be pretty boring sitting around in the arena starting zone thumb twiddling while you wait for a forth. Still, it'd be better than playing an almost guaranteed loss. Thanks for answering my question!

Does anyone on the PTS have answers for these questions as well?
