Premades in Deathmatch

All they need to do is add in decent commands. Given EAs involvement in the game, it shouldn't be hard to port a battlefield-esque system in, and that works.

Premades will always have an advantage, yes, but that's because you've got a group of players who are playing the game as it should be - a multiplayer game.

IMO, the best solution would be to add temporary VOIP to matches. Communication is key and this would go a long way to balance things out a bit. I play an even share of solo queue and premade and will say that solo matches are excruciating, at times. I find myself bewildered at some of the tactics (or lack thereof) being used and would LOVE the ability to help out those new pilots out there with a few pointers while flying the match.

I feel like 90% of these "premades" are just people seeing stuff where there is none. I have seen many a PuG roflstomp other pugs. In fact PuG v PuG is just as likely if not more so to be horribly imbalanced.
When the same 4 people continue to be in the same squadron day after day its a big hint.

Oh man, hi. Didn't realize you were pot5. Sorry if I've blown you up (except not really).

On the imp side of POT5, there are no organized premades. What ever premade that was there in dec-early jan is gone. So please imps! Get together and organize! Only real competition I've seen is pub v pub matches.
Death Squadron is still around. They're significantly less active (couldn't tell you why, not at all /s), but they show up from time to time and hand our asses to us.

it would be great if they had 3 queue's

1) For pilots that have not mastered a ship

2) Pugs

3) grouped combat

Then to balance the factions they should get rid of same faction "war game" mode

Then make drones less accurate than the average pilot and bam great game every one wants to play.

While I think the OP is a little far than I can agree with, I will say there is one and only 1 thing that I have problem with premades in GSF and that is that pugs have no means of communcating with one another until they are dead, which most of the time becomes pointless. There needs to be a system that allows pugs to easily communicate with one another, maybe not as easy as full on voice chat but some tool that can bridge the gap of communications.

They just need 2 ques, 1 for grouped, 1 you cant group. but I don't know if they have enough people left to pull off two ques and pretty soon they definitely wont. But I guess it doesn't really matter, noobs who just want to log on and play should not be put up against 4 veterans in teamspeak running a gunship tag team on them.
