One of the strangest things with the matchmaking system is that arenas hardly ever pop when u queue reg wzs. Sometimes I'll be sitting in queue for longer than normal and an 8 v 8 wz will pop, and it starts with like only 4 or 5 ppl on each team. Why didn't a couple arenas pop instead of a half filled 8 v 8 game? Clearly what should have happened in the OPs game is the two premades should have been on separate teams. Matchmaking is the culprit for many of he issues in pvp regs atm.

yeah, and solo queue's should have been the fill the missing numbers for the group.

I know GSF has 2 toggles, one for group, and the other solo, Unrank WZ, does not have it. Just a one toggle, or I'm miss seeing another button to select.
So I'm not sure in Unrank, that Matchmaker see's a group. Well I'm sure it does, just the way it works seems it doesn't.
Rank WZ, I only know what I've read, eventually everyone makes it to play rank, even if they lose their way to it, just to get to select and start playing rank, So I don't know if there are two select toggles, one for solo and one for group in Rank. I just haven't paid any attention if it's that way.
It's possible the one side did have a group, just a band of not good, or didn't have coms, and the the match maker just selected the wrong groups to be on the side, don't know.
you don't actually need to be in a group to group with friends, if you have coms

Feel free to join a PVP guild to q together. Premades are strong because they focus targets together. If Randoms would focus the marked targets too, they would be as strong as premades 🙂

only seen that happen a couple times. I have asked a few times which target, didn't even have crickets reply, after a couple weeks I gave up asking.
The couple times it did happen, the match was more enjoyable , and felt like a PvP match.
Here, in this game, players play like drones if not in a group.

Yes i can confirm this, but our guild most marked the lowest equipped guys, but also the strongest DPS and the healer.
It happens sometimes that the randoms remove the marker, but dont know why 🙂

Yes, if you find yourself with a premade on your team don't change their target markers. We typically know everyone worth marking and there is a reason they are marked.

Returning player. Can someone please explain what double premade and quadruple premades are? Is it that you can only group up with 4 players at a time when you're forming a premade, and if you're lucky (with your guildmates or friends), that 8-12 of you get into the same pvp match? Is there then a hard limit of a group of 4 players that can group up to form a premade in PvP, but the way the matchmaking works it allows this double/quadruple to happened?

Double premade is when for whatever reason the matchmaking places two 4 man premades in a match on the same team.
