Premades are ruining non-ranked warzones

I think the system is fine overall.

I play in a hardcore PvP guild and queue up with 4-man pre-made all the time.

On the one hand...
It's good to play against Imperial pre-mades and have a tough fight with a real challenge, sometimes we lose, sometimes we win. That's life. When I queue with 4-man premade this is what happens most of the time actually, i.e. we're usually fighting other pre-mades with only a random PUG here and there to fill up the ranks.

On the other hand...
Every now and then it's also fun to play against complete Imperial Recruit PUG teams. Run up to 3 recruits at a turret, Force Leap, Awe everyone, Pacify and kill first guy with default rotation while other 2 can do nothing, pop Zen, kill 2nd one with Precision Slash, Blade Storm and Blade Rush spam, pop Guarded by the Force + Medpac and finish 3rd with whatever I have left. - It's just fun, what can I say Simply good times with my guildmates and on my Combat Sentinel!

A true test of skill indeed.

Why premades do pugs? You mean why they do regular warzones with guildies. I did some rateds Friday night and in the 10 games we got, only faced 4 teams as the rest were empty warzones which totally sucked. Waiting some time for a rated queue to pop can be bad enough but when you go 20+minutes of waiting only to not face a team is not fun.

I have a Sage and my Mind Crush has never critted that high on a tick. The only way I could imagine you being hit by Crushing Darkness for that much damage is if your opponent was a fully min/maxed WH/EWH on exotech stims and warzone adrenals and you were wearing some really **** low level gear. Even then, 8k would be the overall damage from the attack itself and the 6-second-long dot NOT damage per tick.

I don't know what kind of drugs you were on but if Crushing Darkness could hit 8k per tick, I'm pretty sure that everyone would be playing a JC/SI by now.

Premades are going to happen regardless how many people complain about it.

Instead lets complain how to the F2P completely clueless people are ruining lowbie PvP for us people who actually pay for our subs!?

8k a tick.
That seems a little high.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

how long does it take to end said wz's with 3-caps or by scoring 6 goals? I imagine vstar would be bothersome.
meh
