    Default I queue solo, I wan't to fight against others who do the same.

    Trion, you promised in the notes about the future that you would fix this.... sometime.

    HOTFIX IT NOW because its not fun getting completely assraped by the same premade all the time with my group of random people.

    Thanks.

    Btw, sometimes I'm in the mood to play with 4 other people on ventrilo and I am all for going up against other premades, it's only fair... but to be honest, I prefer playing alone more, putting on some music, and just doing my own thing much more often.

    They did fix it... 118 days after the game started.
    Course, within 3 days Premades had found a way around the fix.
    So 8 days after the fix was implemented, it was removed.

    I don't believe we'll see a "fix" to this problem any time soon, if ever. Their (Trion's) perspective is that you're just as likely to be p(l)ugged into a premade group as you are to be pugged against one, so it all evens out in the end. What they don't consider is that more often than not, you'll get 1 premade + pugs pitted against a full premade group because of the disparity between guardian and defiant populations. You get favor/prestige regardless of the mismatch, so as far as Trion as concerned, everything is working as intended. Personally, I'd rather do something about the amount of afking leeches who further imbalance things by not contributing at all. They are a far bigger problem than the occasional premade vs. pug mismatch.

    Nerf the queue system! Also nerf everyone apart form me. I'm getting sick and tired of coming up against better players, I want to win every game and because the world revolves around me, I should get my way.

    It's like when I really want an icecream, my mum says "you can have one after dinner" so I'm all like "I hate you mummy, your need to be nerfed, you're the worst mummy ever".

    Then I get an icecream (it spoilt my appetite though so I couldn't eat my dinner... stupid mummy)

    As amusing as this reply was, it would have been better suited to a thread where it would have applied...

    Well im sick of playing with pugs...organized competitive pvp shouldnt be frowned upon. Anyway i don't know what your crying about I cant get in to a warfront with a group bigger then 2 people. I should be able to have a group of 5 people and get in no problem.

    Trion needs to hire somebody to audit the WF clusters - look at the number of people trying to queue as groups. Shuffle them around so that they have decent queue times. There is no doubt about that... but in doing so, they need to make sure that they cannot still slip into PUG queues to farm. 3-2-1 Go needs to be dealt with as well.

    I suppose I still have remnants of my creepy sense of humor. Also, had just watched Get Him To the Greek the other day, so I could picture Russell saying it...lol.

    It isn't frowned upon.
    Organized PvP, premade vs premade is great fun, I don't think anyone disagrees with that.

    The problem is that selfish kiddos are abusing the current system to gain an unfair advantage for faster farming, ruining the fun of the majority (which is PUG players) in the process.
    That is what people complain about. And rightfully so.
    The queue system is crappy.

    People want the path of least resistance.
    Why else do you think there are so many parachamps running around?

    Does it feel high and mighty sitting on the "I don't play the FOTM spec of my calling" throne?

    ... oh wait you play a DOM ...

    It's okay. Not everyone can handle the complexities of parachamp. I hope you found your home in cabalist.
    The throne is pretty comfortable, to be honest.

    If Dom was as powerful as you said it was, post-nerf and all, you'd be playing one.
