    Default PvP Update

    Just a couple of quick updates for folks.

    Matchmaking
    Saw this release note come through last night:
    The warfront matchmaking system will attempt to match up players of similar PvP skill levels. There have also been improvements to getting groups to be included in matches regardless of size.

    5 v 5
    Just got out of a meeting with engineers and designers regarding the discussed 5 v 5 test. Work is spec'd, if things go according to plan, we'd release that during 2.5 but not at the release of 2.5. No rewards, just pure rankings for that. Also, this would be something we'd likely not leave on all the time.

    Conquest Tweaks
    Behind on this, as with many tasks that land directly on me. I have a giant pile of feedback from the last playtest to go through and implement. I still expect to have a new version out during 2.5 - but again, not on the 2.5 patch day.

    When Steppes goes live - we will be wiping Freelancer's Marks of Conquest. Gear that used to require Freelancer's Marks of Conquest will no longer require CQ marks. New marks will be awarded for new rewards.

    PvP Dimensions
    The engineer responsible for this is dealing with higher priority issues for the time being. The feature is not canceled and will not die, but won't be able to take top priority for some time.

    I have a lot of mixed feelings about this. I saw u said ranking which made me smile, then saw the words delays a lot which took the smile back off my face. Then saw 5 v 5 tdm, smiled again. Then not offered all the time, frowning again. You make my pants go meh.... Like a slightly plus sized model.

    Really have to say thanks Daglar for the update. Only thing I'd have to say is could we get these more often, even if it's "Hey you nerds, nothing to update at this time."

    Thanks again man.

    Is this referring to leader board rankings? Prestige Ranks? Something better (hopefully)/

    The new CQ was a huge amount of fun and I'm actually looking forward to playing more of it. Hope we're getting Warlord and Myrmidon seals/trinkets



    Also, this would be something we'd likely not leave on all the time.
    I'm not a 5s player but I'm curious what the reasoning behind this is. If people enjoy it, why not have it be a permanent feature?

    Im thinking it will be an exclusive 5v5 mmr type ranking. Which is an amazing carrot for most pvp lovers.


    @Daglar, Thank you so much for this update. A+ one of the best Rift updates to date.


    Moral meter is through the roof right now.
