We basically have mega servers now. Implement cross faction queues and add matchmaking. There's no excuse for it not to be in the game at this point. Its not enjoyable playing these matches with teams that have stacked healers and no one dies.

I agree.

It could prevent further faction imbalances which would no longer be fixable. And a simple form of matchmaking where there are at most 2 healers on each team, and always an equal amount of them shouldn't be that hard to make.

**** having even healers on each team. People are always "voting down" on MVP in group instead of voting for: 1 a healer if you are not a healer 2. The person with the highest guard if you are a healer.

Deserve to be stuck on teams without healers

Matchmaking is needed, have been needed and will be needed.

And it won't happen. At this stage you pay & play the game as-is.
Faction imbalance is the scientific term for saying player skills mature at a later age than that of the intended audience of a certain faction.

So you let your ego get in the way of making games a little bit more fair? Alright

I don't think that we have enough players. Yes you heard it right.

I queued in regs for 4*2 hours in Darth Malgus prime time on last weekend and all i got is the same players more or less, even on enemy side. Apparently, after 5.6 some players are VERY busy with group ranked mats farming... but still.

They merged servers way to late.

MVP heals? It is the easiest thing to play.

MVP Guard? Are you kidding, for using one ability that is not even in a rotation, it is fire and forget?

Really, heals and guard are the #1 problem in PvP right now, most matches have < 10 kills total. It is just a stalemate. BOring.

I mean, I always give it to the one with the most objective points.....but lets be serious here. Who actually cares about mvp? It doesnt do anything special.

It boosts your ego, so this is a very special task.
