everytime they have tried to reinvent the wheel (see:EGA) it has only been a catastrophic failure that is digging this game's grave.

many people claims this game is a WoW clone....if only....BioWare seem hellbent in doing everything possible to distance themselves from WoW, and so far that seems to only include doing things WRONG on purpose instead of RIGHT.

I give this game 3 months before joining the rest of MMOS with a few hundred thousand subs, yet this one had almost 5 times the budget of those...

GW2 is gonna destroy this game.

You have to wonder what kind of dev would think low levels getting ripped apart by 50s would be fun. It's a terrible business plan as well, as any new players will get immediately turned off.
I'm quite sure they will add brackets for lvl 50 in the near future. But right now there's not that many lvl 50's. And if they had thier own bracket right now, they would have very, very long queues.

Once more people start hitting 50 I'm sure there will be brackets. Just chill.

The pvp rewards for losing are fine. After getting curb-stomped by 50s in a Void Star (and it really was comical; we couldn't scratch this BH and he could 10-second each of us), I limped out with minor commendations and credits. Next game we played against fewer 50s but they were terrible and we managed to kill them a few times. Still lost, but that was more our fault than level disadvantage, and the rewards were fine. The only rewards you should expect from sub-50 pvp is commendations and real-time battle experience. You still get both.

So what if the level 50's have to wait a long time in que? that's their fault for rushing or exploiting to 50 so fast. Rift and Warhammer had brackets. Rush to 50 too fast? Too bad QQ, gotta wait for everyone else. I can't understand why "Well let the 50's **** you a few more weeks until there are more 50's" is even an argument coming out of peoples mouths.

Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

Wow. Look at the tears flow. Gotta say props to the level 50s out there. Good job at weeding out the weak...

The premades will win every time, and theres nothing that can be done about it. Group queues with 3 or more players should be matched against other group queues, not random solo queues
so your saying the more organized better team shouldnt win?

IF you cant compete , then stop queing or get better.

So how much longer do we have to wait for a solution? "It's only been a week!" The amount of time since the game "officially" released (let's conveniently ignore the week before when early access started) is pretty non-sequitor seeing how many 50s there are rolling out already.

Even at level cap, solo queuing will be forever pointless because teammates will consist of nothing but newbies and failures. We need to recognize these premades for what they really are for: Pubstomping. You can't seriously believe that a group of randoms are going to be able to compete successfully against a group of 50s who are probably using Vent/Mumble.
This is totally in affect on my server. Pvp is a joke, you nailed it .. Completely pointless

my guildies and I will queue for pvp as a group, but when we're in our 20's and 30's, we get owned by 50s in huttball pretty bad. so this isn't just about premade versus premade.

I guess no one in here has ever tried lowbie pvp in WoW where you have to wait 30 minutes for a single Battle Ground just to have your entire team owned by a single twink rogue that could easily kill someone double its level. That is the reality of brackets, twinks pwn lower levels. If we did have brackets, everyone here would be qq'ing about twinks and 30 minute waits. At least with no brackets our wait time is around a minute and we get more practice/playtime.

Brackets suck because of twinks and long timers to find a WZ.
No brackets may not be perfect but they are better than the alternative.
