We have premade v premade, its called group ranked.

Premades in regs isnt about competition, its about e-peen. Its about stacking the deck to win and pretending that it equates to skill when you have every possible advantage. Its literally like playing chess but taking the other guys Queen off the board at the start.

Yeah yeah i know playing with friends... for the maybe 10% of you where this is true, exclude yourselves from the butthurt and realize im not talking about you OK.

i think 90-10 is a stretch, but i don't care really. If there was a matchmaking system, premades wouldn't be a "problem".

If they either implement cross-server queues, or they merge the servers the queue times would still be within an acceptable range for both solo and group queue in regs.

First off I agree that a matchmaking system in PvP is a must in any trinity game design. It says loads that Bioware continuously tries to balance PvP without a matchmaking system that balances the trinity system.

With that said a matchmaking system for WZ's is only one of several fixes needed and I think it holds equal ground with population issues and giving players a choice rather than forcing them to roll the dice on if they will be fighting a 4 or queue syncing 8 man team.

This right here......

I don't think people realize yet that a matchmaking system will break premade groups to a degree unless they are rolling proper builds...

For instance if you don't have a healer and your just four buddies you may be stuck in the queue much longer than currently.

On the other hand a PuG group that now has a guaranteed healer and tank may have a solid chance against a guild group....much better than now anyway.

Well could also be people who just dont like arenas, not saying it is everyone but since we do not have 8v8 group ques then if you want to play something other then arena you have no other choice then regs.
