It happens because people are still upset about it. That makes it an issue, and it is one with weight.

However, this can be addressed without taking anything from solo or grouped players. The answer is simple: normal warzones need to be added to both solo and grouped ranked queues. The fact that this issue persists even now -- half a year after the addition of a solo queue -- can only mean that arenas alone cannot support ranked queues, that solo and grouped players would rather play in the general queue for ostensibly no reason rather than play in the ranked ones that offer recognition and awards. Arenas are unpopular and it stands to reason that they never will be popular.

The sooner the devs come to grips with this the better it will be for everyone.

Go ahead and attack my analogies. My point still stands. Premades do ruin regular warzones for me and for many others who have posted in this thread.

I think a better example would be: I like my steak med-rare, you cooked it how you like it which is well done. I will no longer enjoy my steak, even though you like it (we could go the other way, but then I toss the steak on the grill a bit longer to my taste). But the argument you made isn't about that. You were saying premades are ruining warzones because you said so. You didn't say they were ruining it for you, you implied they were ruining it for everyone.

Not for everyone, but not for just me either. Just read though this thread and you will see that their are others out there that agree with me.

That's why there should be different queues. That way people who agree with me could avoid playing against premades by joining a solo only queue, and those who disagree with me could join the queue that they prefer.

You analogies are actually pretty good. and i do agree on the fact that Premades ruin my warzone expereince. though i think a counter to this would be to add an ingame VoIP for Groups, this would allow EVERYONE to easily call things out and promote teamwork, cause on Impside Harbinger, PvP is like pulling teeth....

I don't think that premades are ruining non-ranked warzones, but I really would love it.
