The change to the daily WZ matches, reduced from 6 to 4, was a huge mistake by Bioware as all that happens now is that if a team is notably stronger or gains the upper hand ppl will either leave, if they have already attained their daily, OR not try i.e. make it so the team loses quicker since by doing this they still gain a daily match point and have the chance of another match quicker than if they were to fight it out.

When the daily was 6 match points ppl put the effort in to turn the initial deficit around as the 2 point win meant SO much more, now most pvp matches are just a farce. The other night I saw someone join / leave three times, yes three times!! (lol) YES you still need 9 match wins for your pvp weekly but this doesn’t outweigh the nightmare of your average pvp daily match.

I for one would rather have the 6 point pvp daily back, as it actually meant something to pvp’ers.

In my humble opinion, they should have increased the original 6-pt daily to 10, and then made a separate 4-pt pvp daily for EACH individual WZ.

I play several characters and for me 4 is working great, makes the daily a bit quicker.

I do agree though that players tend to leave and that needs to be looked into, but that has already Bioware confirmed that they do

If the real purpose was catering to those who have a slower go of it by having a hard.time securing wins why not make the weekly 18 matches instead of 9 wins then leave the daily at 6. The alternative would be setting it to 4 but removing the double credit for a win portion

weird, im more inclined to leave a match while doing my daily..i mean I want a win, once done i actually stay more often because well i really dont care if the team plays poorly then..for me its practice. My confusion is that some players are obviously intentioanlly playing bad, its not poor gear or inexperience that loses us the match, its the healer who runs to solo defend a turret while his team dies at mid. Reducing the matchs if anything is making wz queues longer, ive defintely noticed a longer wait as the night goes on. But reducing the number you need for daily should rduce the pain of facing premades as well. so for me its a 50/50 situation..im just not that bothered by it. Trust me when there was ilum it was way worse.
