    Default Time frame on rated 5v5?

    Hey,

    Some time back a dev posted that rated 5v5s were coming in 2.5, though at the release of the patch. At least this is what I got from it. I would greatly appreciate if we can get more information on this. Thank you.

    5vs5s only hope was pvp in dimensions. That project received a delay with zero scope attached so don't get your hopes up.

    I thought there was suppose to be a separate 5v5 WF purely for rating.

    They did say that, they also said that even when it was released, it wouldn't be a feature that was always available.

    Considering the severe lack of actual coding needing to be done for this project, or time needed to be spent, it's a very strong possibility that it's already done, possibly already in game, except not unlocked for usage, awaiting it's time as possibly a weekend warfront or something similarly redundant and stupid.

    OK I'm showing my ignorance here, but how do you know whether or not there's any coding done? I have no idea how much work is involved or how hard it is to make a rated team system, but I think it would be fun if we could have matches in our own decorated/modified Dimensions.

    Library was a weekend-only WF at first, wasn't it? Trion made it a regular WF when players asked, so there's that.

    Because quite literally, all they have to do is take any of the maps, and make the player limit 5v5. Leaving objectives in or not is completely irrelevant to the situation. Daglar made two maps on his own time, on a weekend. I hardly bring myself to believe setting the parameters to restrict a map to 5v5 would be overly challenging.

    He also said it was a feature that they would not leave on all the time, which brought me to the assumption that it could very well be a weekend map.

    It's just my choice of putting the pieces together, but there is that.

    Rift has to be the only community that actively says "no" to new content.

    Trion is the only company that rather hurt themselves and shut down then to produce content for the majority.

    They say stuff to calm down the masses, but never do it.

    They are still busy pushing out expensive Raid content for all 60 of the minority end game raiders.


    They can't even put a simple CQ hot fix to return it to it's pre 2.5 status, as Daglar did say he broke CQ with 2.5 and never "looked into it" So we have a crappy 10 min timer for kills now.

    Community asked for very simple end game pvp content, Trions answer???? ANOTHER CQ THAT THE COMMUNITY LOVES TO DO SO MUCH DERP DERP.

    who said no? he asked when, 2 people sarcastically said never, pro-arena folk are such a sensitive bunch

    and ironically the pro-arena folks who quit were the ones typically saying no to new pvp content if it involved objectives because they didnt like it, people saying no to arena are doing so because it's a waste of time and will be a balance/participation failure

    On the PTS, there is a 5v5 rated Black Garden warfront. Looks to be TDM based. I believe all the warfronts are currently locked though, so I don't think anyone can queue for it just yet.
