Even though it does lead to a rash of saboteurs quitting warzones and leaving the team behind with a deficit when some precious snowflake stumbles across a warzone they "don't like" and then leave, I'd still rather have a good number of players in all queues for all warzones.

If you let people choose, they will only choose the ones they like, and instead of all of us being able to PVP with the high frequencies we have today, we'll all be stuck in much longer queues, waiting for the few warzones that will pop (as no one is playing the others).
I think that problem could be solved by setting a limit to how many matches of each WZ can be going, relative to how many people are actively playing them, at a given time. And those limits wouldn't have to be perfectly divided. For example: Say there are 1000 people on each side playing WZs. The game could set a limit of 30 matches of each of the 5 WZs, which is over 20%, to be running at one time. That way it wouldn't be super strict, but could keep the PVP environment from getting stale.

Why can't they just do what wow does, add a bonus for queuing random and no bonus if you choose a specific wz...most people will still queue for random and the other guys can be happy if they just want to run a certain wz.
