    Default Low PVP Queue Times (Guardian)

    Looking for a new server with low queue times for guardians. Pref one where guardians win at least 50% of the time r3+

    Sure can, if it exists on defiant side with 90% wins and 3-4 min queue times it exists on guardian side

    Seastone cluster has fast/instant queues for me. I would say we win about 50%, the only problem with this group is theres two or three defiant guilds that exploit their way into running 10-15 man premades fairly often. When you don't get put against those thouhg, its a pretty good group to play in.

    Freeholme cluster is pretty fast and wins are pretty consistent.
    Even free cost too much now

    Go to Deepstrike/Dayblind cluster. Good times and battles.

    If by exploiting you mean queuing in twos for maximum efficiency (premade queues are slow as hell) then sure. And 10-15? More like 8, max.

    Deepstrike, you'll have long que times with all the other r8 defiants. But you'll get to lolstomp a bunch of guardians in r2 gear and pat yourself on the back. Guards here are pretty awful. They need to rename this shard 'training wheels'.

    My experience has been the same as this. Guardians will be stomping along, and then suddenly I'll get into a warfront with 15 Seastone players in it. They can get a bit rough, but sometimes we even get close to beating them, so it can be good.

    Guardians tend to do well later at night weekdays for some reason. I can usually only PvP between 12-3am EST, and we always win way more than we lose.

    Of course I don't queue for Port Scion, so that might be why. I hear we don't do so well in that warfront for whatever reason, but I don't know for sure. I hate PvE in PvP so I avoid it.

    i dont think anybody does well in scion because noone ques for it (unless its the daily) the only competitive warfronts are whitefall steps and codex,
    black guarden was good untill everyone got geared, now what ever team have the better gear wipes the others and camps them at the hill.
    scion, everyone either goes for kills or wants to continually bum rush the boss, either way the warfront fails.
    codex can be subjected to spawn camping but it is usually limited due to larger terrain.
    WFS can be ruined when you get a god of a shard runner, some of those guys can clear 1 end to the other in under 10 seconds i swear(Usain Bolt anyone?).

    anyhoo on topic, Ive tried a few clusters and Seastone suits me well. only a few hardcore guilds with casuals, they usually play in a specific pattern so if you arnt after a challenge you can time it, same goes if you want a challenge.

    Same again for me. Codex, Whitefall, and Library are the only 3 warfronts I queue, because they're the only 3 I like.

    And it takes about 35-40 seconds for a good runner to get from one end of the map to the other if you get a straight run down the middle. If you have to veer of to the sides it gets longer.

    Depends when you play and if you play port scion then you are not playing with the pros. Go to whitefalls and runemasters for a better experience. Codex and BG is 50/50. Port scion no one really cares about since that is noob territory. Deepstrike is fine for guardians. They do pretty well their. If you are still a lowbie maybe you can go to seastone and get carried. If you want decent comp come to deepstrike queues are nearly instant..win or lose you rank higher than other places.

    I support this post

    In all seriousness though, it's at most 8 of us at a time, but usually it's anywhere from 3 to 6.
