[PETITION] A request to know the exact details of 2.4, the "PVP patch"

It has been 8-9 months since any significant changes were made to PVP. We were promised content "shortly after" 2.0 and are now setting at an October release date for 2.4, the patch cited to contain improvements to PVP.

This is a petition to request that Bioware give us the details of that patch, rather than simply teasing us with the promise of content as they have so harshly done for the past half year. Most of us stay loyal to this game because we enjoy the PVP, but many are leaving and will continue to leave until new features are implemented.

We need arenas. We need 4v4 content. We need a ranked season. We don't need a single new WZ.

Please Bioware, enlighten us and give PVPers a reason to stay subbed. Tell us what we can expect from 2.4 and please do not be purposefully vague. Stop taking for granted your PVP fanbase.

DISCLAIMER : Those that sign in this thread are not under the expectation that any details revealed will be guaranteed and set in stone. We understand the problems with over promising. However, what we need to know is what is in the works and what the expected outcome is.

BioWare said in a Blog from 1.2:

"In Game Update 1.2, any level 50 player will be able to queue up for Ranked Warzones by themselves or in a group of any size up to eight players."

"The Ranked Warzone matchmaking system will match full groups of eight against one another, solo players against one another, players with similar ratings."

"We know that the flexible matchmaking and mixed matches are not ideal. They are only in until cross-server queuing is available and are the primary reason Ranked Warzones in Game Update 1.2 are Pre-Season."

Patch 1.2 was released 12/4/2012.

They pulled RWZ at the last possible moment and released it in 1.3, ONLY 8 man teams able to que(still are). The Solo/grouphowevermany feature was pulled. The cross-server queing was never again talked about. We are over 1 year into Pre-Season and still we havent seen or heard anything of what they stated in this blog. BioWare need to respond because 2.4 is far away atm.

I PvP a lot and I completely agree with many things being said on this forum about BW leaving us in the dark. That being said, if you've been here a while you should know by now that they don't give details out so far away (at least the details you are looking for). They'll give you what they hope to do at best. Any solid information on the other hand will be nowhere to be seen until much nearer the time.

This is how I feel. PvE get new Tier that will SMASH the current PvP tier (THAT ALREADY ARE 2 TIERS BELOW CURRENT PVE TIER)
May the Force be with you.

I think this warrants an exception to their usual approach of non-communication on details. They've been able to talk about what 2.2 and 2.3 will bring, and only yesterday it was hinted that the PVP patch will be "soon" after 2.2. Most, including me, took that to mean 2.3. However, yet again we've been teased with the promise of content only to discover that we'll be 'happy' with 2.4. But this game has been so lacking in PVP content for so long that it is only fair that we have all the information to make an informed decision about our future with the game, and the future of PVP in general.

These details are needed. Talking of PVP content is far too vague and most will agree that significant features need to be implemented or else the PVP here will disappear, even more than it already has done.
