Why won't you guys just give us cross server rateds? "It will ruin the community," you all say... But I say it will make the PvP community stronger give me cross server rateds!..... please

Not sure what community it is that they're talking about there. I know who all the good players are on my main server but when I'm pugging I'm rarely, almost never, coming across any of them, due to the current population. Hence, x-server would have no effect on my experience. I'd rather have a healthy rated population and a population so big that they could implement matchmaking criterias/filters. Everyone would benefit from this.

So my team probably wont do this.. so if any guild needs a Decent rated Powertech/Vanguard, Juggernaut/Guardian Tank, Sniper/Gunslinger, Sorc/Sage(Heals or dps) or an Operative/Scoundrel Healer Let me know (PM Or Post) So I can stack them up with Conqueror gear.. I'm mainly on the Imp side But I can bolster my alts to 55 and gear them up if someone on the rep side wants to pick me up

<Infinite Darkness>'s only stream that I am aware of (my own). We mute it and delay it by 2 minutes for ranked. We've had a history of teams stream sniping us, having a "9th man" sitting out and watching/listening to stream to give his team updates etc. Plus we just don't want everyone copying our strats.

I didn't stream our first 5 rated games on PTS unfortunately, but I should be streaming them today. Apologies for no sound.

After watching your stream for 2.0 as a Smasher Mara and playing 2.0 myself; one thing keeps coming back to me. Rage/Focus is still stupidly OP. I like how Bioware says they nerfed it, while making it easier to get stacks, leaving it with a 100% crit rate, and damage is still higher than any other class in the game. Of course Biowre still doesn't understand that giving the core ability of a class spec 100% crit, means you wont use crit anywhere in your gear. Go go Power stacking.

P.S. I should never have deleted my 50 Mara. I may get bored with melee DPS, but seriously, stack 3 Smashers and wipe a group out in a couple of seconds.

Well it has been obvious for quite some time that they do not understand their classes .

But mostly the issues are that bioware does not want a competitive game. If they did they would stop balancing based on the average players and start doing what all competitive games do, Base the balance on what the best guy can do with a class. Because that is what ruins a game. When the most skilled players decide to pick up the best(op) classes and just destroy warzones.

What normals can do doesent matter on the competitive scene.

I dont know the name but someone else said it best.

"They seem to be basing their balance on an average and since all bads pick up the op classes and still do quite bad. Or really bad in some cases. And that obviously pulls the performance down on the entire spec/class and will seem to on average perform as intended"


Imagine if blizzard would balance SC2 based on what gold scrubs had problems with. That game would have a hilarious pro scene if that was the case.(cant compare it 100% but it's pretty accurate imo)

Luckily blizzard want a competitive game in sc2. Bioware... not so much.
