Please let my queue wait for the objective-based PVP. I don't understand how that's a big ask.

I also dislike 4v4 pvp and am very bad at it, but some people lack patience and want ques to pop as fast as possible. It would be nice if there was that option, but there are many players who would complain about wait times so the option is not implemented. At least 4v4 do not last long, I just would like announcers not say anything at all when it is over to the losing side. The worst thing about a 4v4 is the chances of a pick up group against a pre-made group is increased.

Who knows maybe there should be a surrender option in which all members can vote to surrender or fight. Players votes would not be known to others and it would have to be everyone agreeing to surrender for it to happen and then the other side would be given the win. No penalty would be assessed to either side.

Of course some would disagree and just say fight and get better. I guess all four group members can just jump down and sit down and wait to be killed. I would only think that is a good choice if you are stuck repeatedly with 4v4 matches.

As I'm only doing pvp for gs, I'd like to only do arenas. I don't care how good or bad the teams are, it's over quick, win or loss, my GS ticks over, and I can forget about pvp till the nest day.

I agree with the OP. The only player effected by such an option would be the one who chooses to wait for an objective map. All others would pop at the same rate as if I wasn't in the que. With the lockout timer, and the lack of opting out of content not wanted, I am forced, forced mind you, to participate in crap content that isn't worth the short time it takes to play.

If 4x4 is really what the majority of PVP players want, the option button will prove that to be the case, as 4x4 would pop almost exclusively. But, if objective maps are really the high taste of the pvp scene, such will play out as the final truth. What does the pvp community have to lose by giving the objective vs 4x4 option button a try?

Hmm ?

except, how long would it be before these people who have only objectives toggled would start flooding these forums with complaints that 'Pvp' isn't popping...

This. 4v4 pops as a measure to prevent you from waiting four or five hours for a PvP pop. And for the people who are saying they don’t mind waiting, not everyone has that luxury. Some people only have a limited time to play and they want to use it to do PvP. Splitting the queue like that would most likely kill regs. If you don’t believe me, look at solo ranked and how often that pops. Maybe you’ll get lucky a night or two, but overall that queue is a whole lot of waiting around.

Besides, arenas are quick. Even if you try to drag them out, there’s a sudden death condition that keeps them just under five minutes a round. So even if you lose, you can get right back to doing something else quickly.

It's the reason I prefer them The 8v8's can be more fun, when teams are balanced, and not DM's (or have cheaters) but unfortunately, there seems to be a lot of non objective play, so if people are going to be DM'ing, I'd rather it was arenas, so we could end it quickly

the arenas are quicker than a lockout, and if you do gs, a lose still ticks off the daily/weekly. But if you don't like them, I understand taking the 15 mins. An opt out/in system would be good for people who like the different options.

Of course an opt out button would be nice but here we talking about BW. They don't do nice things.
This whole arena mess is the perfect example what's wrong with the way BW do things.

OK. First we had WZs and HB. Than a small but extremely loud and pushy group of players kept asking for arenas.
We kept asking BW pls no arenas PvP is bad enough, so we got arenas. Now the people who hated arenas and asked BW pls no arenas kept leaving it. So the little vicus kids attacked the forum again. How dare you leave the arenas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????? You ruin my game, I ruin yours to but that's OK. BW do something and BW did something again. That's pretty much the trend on forums and social media sites. Guess we are lucky they don't call Us racist or begot for leaving arenas.
