    Default You can't PvP with friends in this game.

    Seriously. Either you try to group up and wait hours for a queue to pop, or you get tossed on opposing teams. It ruins PvP.

    Either let groups of upto 5 queue up and get into warfronts without waiting hours, or make mercenaries optional. I don't even give a crap that it will mean coming up against more premades, at least with friends with you you stand a chance or have someone to laugh off the losses with.

    All I want to do is play with friends, isn't that the whole point of an MMO?

    People will cry that you're a premade if they lose. Then they'll cry to Trion again. People cry over perceived premades just because 3 people on the other side are from the same server and they start losing.

    It seems devs cater more to whining than community/friends.

    Nope. You can't. You'd make people cry and that it not allowed!

    Conquest is coming in 1.9, that sounds exactly like what you want. You can queue as a raid.
    Edit: And it should be instant, as there's no "premade" algorithm within it, as far as I can tell from the tests I've been in. I was queuing with 6 or 7 guildies IIRC. Look forward to it!

    But the EVIL premades kicked me in the face, poured salt in my eyes, punched me in the gut, curbstomped me, and worst of all, made fun of my MOM!

    I'm different, I atleast hand out tacos after violating pugs. And by hand out I really mean, force them to purchase.

    So barely anyone queues as a pre-made and Trion do the sensible thing by catering to the majority that don't queue as a pre-made.

    Organized competitive play is pure evil. It can't possibly be fun, so why should Rift support it?
    I'm so BORED

    In reality, the outcry against premades far outweighed what the actual problem warranted. Premades were nowhere near as prevalent as people made them out to be. It was getting to the point where any time someone lost a WF, it was because they were fighting a premade, whether they actually were or not.

    In short, the problem, if that's what you want to call it, was blown way out of proportion.

    As for why anyone barely queues as a premade, they can't. The maximum number of people that can queue together without using sync queuing is 5, which is technically a group, not a premade.

    The reason why people rarely queue as a group is because the system creates a cascade effect when it comes to queue times. Anytime you separate one segment of the queue pool from the general, more populated queue pool it creates longer queue times for the people who are being separated. This is what happened to the people that were interested in group queuing. They were forced into a system that lengthened their wait time.

    As a result, some people gave up on group queuing, which in turn created even longer queue times, which caused even more people to give up on group queuing, which caused longer queue times, an so on and so forth.
