Then, that said, I would have only the SOLO Queues give regular warzone comms and only the TEAM Queues give Rated PvP Comms. I know there is no ELO or rating with what I'm suggesting, but that would be the only way to accquire those comms. Change the comm name to "team comms" for all I care and the dailies to "Solo Dailies" and "Team Dailies."

SWTOR has no competitive pvp and even less of a dev team supporting it. Just remove the ELO, let the pvp just be yolo fun. Done. This would get some people be social and group together and queue up. Since there is no ELO and E-peen, I think there would be a ton more people queueing.

So...you could only play with your friends if you have exactly 3 or 7 of them?

I think it's a bit drastic to say this game has no competitive pvp. It might not be where we want it to be but I still get some good ranked in. Removing ELO wouldn't solve anything and would further alienate the handful of good players this game has left. Sure more people would play, but that's what we have regs for. I don't see the point at all.

I don't want some 25k munchkin on my team in 4s arenas and I certainly don't want to play 25k munckins either. That's pointless for both parties.

To the OP: 8v8 Ranked was very fun but there were some pretty large balancing issues. Healing has been toned down a bit so maybe it wouldn't be as bad but I distinctly remember 3 healer games and a 35 minute civil war. Not fun. I'd say the classes are more balanced now than they were then though so maybe it could work.

But this is all academic. BW won't bring 8s back anytime soon. Nor will they do what Soulcaster suggested.

I think the communities interest in ranked is high enough to warrant 8v8's again. We have ranked seasons, end season rewards and daily and weekly missions for ranked. I think it is time to implement ranked 8v8's again.
