    The major changes to how our queue system works have not yet gone live. This issue is at the top of the priority queue for PvP right now and it is being addressed.

    Thanks for the update, the lack of choice regarding facing premades or not has been one of the biggest issues for warfront participation.

    Hopefully after the changes I will be able to recommend Rift on my cross game forums.

    It's amazing how such a short reply can be so satisfying.

    Thank you for taking the time to update us. Looking forward to the changes.

    Awesome feedback from a purple name. I am appeased. Thanks

    EDIT: Sticky this immediately. People have been clamoring over this subject for weeks.

    I know the mod replied, but I have a suggestion of my own.

    Make friends. Queue as a group.

    Stop trying to get the system changed to cater to anti-social solo mentality.

    While I definitely agree with the notion that expecting results in a group-oriented game when not grouping is silly, I feel you left out an important note.

    Trion rushed to answer the HUGE population surge at launch, overdid it, and now a lot of shards just don't have the population to make successful premades.

    It's easy to say "Just find the best PvP'ers you know and group with them". In practice, the best pvp'ers I know are already Rank 6 and are running premades of their own. Why would they drag along a Rank 3 when they know they're going to be facing R6 premades that will effectively render me useless? If I were them, I wouldn't take me. I'd take another R6.

    Yeah, I do realize that there is pop issues on some servers. Very true. But they are putting in free server transfers very soon that should do quite a bit to address this particular barrier.

    Yep, crossing my fingers that this will open up more options, which I think it will.

    Nice chatting with you. Take care!

    I'd be really suprised if they let those of us on low pop servers transfer anywhere except another low pop server. The only real answers are to merge servers or increase the population or lock high/full pop servers to new players. Without one of those it will still suck.

    While it may end up not fixing the problem, there really is no harm in waiting 12 days to at least see what will actually happen, rather than immediately speculate the worst.

    Oh I'm waiting. But it's not hard to work out Trion's calculus here.

    Isn't that what the interwebs are for? Speculating the worse while watching prono?

    Because even the "best pvpers" generally look for new blood. They are humans too you know. They experience attrition and flux in members as well. They also are not going to just hit other full on rank 6 hardcore premades. There are plenty of less challenging matches to practice with.

    Getting a few ranks happens quickly in this game. Regardless of your current rank, It is my experience that you will not have much trouble integrating into a group of experienced pvpers if:

    1. You are friendly.
    2. You put in effort.
    3. You are willing to work as a team.
    4. You are willing to learn and improve.
    5. You are willing to use whatever voice chat application the guild uses.

    Those are far more important attributes than what rank you are. If you have those qualities, rank will just come naturally.

    Edit - Also, there are specific soul setups that still let a low rank player provide very useful group utility.
