    Default Idea for matched pvp

    Now that warfronts are using a matching system, how about a box that we can check to turn it on or off when doing warfronts.
    The idea behind is that some of us that are rank 8, have to wait a very long time to get into certain battlegrounds. I had to wait almost 35 minutes for a Port Scion the other day. Also, its fun to run with guildies that have no obtained the highest rank.

    Now I know what everyone is thinking, a rank8 can go in and wreck all the lower ranks, here is the catch to disabling the matching system. If you disable matching warfronts, you should get less favor and prestige.

    Ideas/suggestions?

    What in gods name are you talking about?

    You want to do WF's with lower ranks. Because you say your guildies are lower rank than you are.

    If you want to do PvP with them then queue with them.

    You are talking about 2 issues.

    First is the long queues for rank 8's.
    Allowing you to turn off matching will not make a difference in this case because the only people that will be turning of matching will be rank 8 players. Nothing will be changed by you being able to turn off the matching system.

    Second is the ability to run with lower ranked friends / guildies.
    This seems like a legit concern. As has been said, though, you could simply queue with the people you wish to play with. Otherwise the chances of you playing with those people are pretty iffy anyways, regardless of the matching system.
