    So you are saying that people shouldn't play with friends at a lower level than you think reasonable?

    For someone who levelled up 4 characters in PVP solo, I'll go ahead and say that premades aren't much of a problem there before prestige gear is introduced. Spec right and you just snipe off people at the rims of the group and work your way in, or if you're a warrior you'll have to save up for some silver for bloodthirst, but you'll slice through people fast enough. However unorganized your team may be each PUG, the other team is at least presented with a distraction so you can do proper work, and there's always at least a handful good people that understands the objective.

    FPS player playing an mmo ... nothing to see here.

    BF3 is coming out in 60 days. But you'll probably complain about 'premades' there too.

    Yes, that's PvP. It's unpleasant to be on the receiving end of it, but it is Player versus Player.

    I do agree, though, that humans are, for the most part, pretty pathetic. One wonders how the young of the species survives to adulthood. A more annoying lot is hard to imagine.

    I just can't figure out why I can't have easy mode. It's not fair that they have friends.

    Also, I don't actually want to have to think...
    Fixed that for you.

    Go play pong.

    That was about the last "fair" game ever written.

    It is PvP. Not very challenging but it is still PvP. People run premades for two reasons: a) play with friends; b) advantage. It's too bad most "hardcore" pvpers do not have the balls to queue up against other premades though.

    I think that premades early lvl serve only one purpose... to put new players right off the pvp end of the game ....

    Frankly, half the time people claim they are up against "premades" it's probably just players who have levelled a few alts, know what to do, and just fill their roles without needing to communicate at all.


    I've said this more than once, and I'll say it again. I very rarely queue with anyone but my wife... so I'm always in PUGs. Some of the best victories we've ever had, the most lop-sided matches in our favor, were ones where not a single word was spoken in Raid/warfront chat except some "gg" at the end when we won, because everyone knew what to do, and filled their roles well. No coordination was necessary. I can see where someone on the other side might think we were a premade while we were camping them at their spawn point while our runner won the game.

    I've been in games where we were getting destroyed, and the usual excuses came up.

    No healers (when we had more total healing than the other team did)

    No one marked healers (lame excuse, if you can't tell the healers from the rest, l2p.. I've never used that before, but it fits.)

    It's a premade (even though there were 4 servers in the opposing team)


    Some people just can't handle losing. Sometimes, the other team is simply better.

    I think most missed the point here. I have to agree.. If you have a premade group for anything under lv 50 pvp you are pathetic..

    I picture the guild chat conversation going something like this:

    Player A "hey i have an idea.. Since we are getting rolled in lv 50 pvp lets all make alts and go where nobody in their right mind would premade!"
    Player B "Damn dude that is a sweet idea.. That would be incredibly fun to roll other level 16 toons!"
    Player A "We all know that we are the best PvP'rs, we are just limited by the other bad players at lv 50!"

    something like that I am sure..

    Yea, people who are in guilds and have low level alts and decide to warfront are such losers.

    Does it hurt to know that other people actually have friends, and want to play as a group instead of alone?
