    Default Ranked 5's

    Hmmm, ranked 5's doesn't show up on the warfront queue list anymore, was it removed? If it was, I understand why... no one plays it, but with 2.7 around the corner, me and a few others were gonna make a team. I already know for certain that others that were thinking the same thing. This is mainly because every 5's team won't need 2 clerics to be competitive, since physician is freaking insane on the PTS atm.

    disappointing. was this intentional?

    Kinda inappropriate to remove it suddenly with no mention in the patch notes or prior notice.

    Yup, shut it down Wednesday.

    Another example of a small sample of players requesting something endlessly- then getting it & ignoring it.

    We could really use a cross-shard channel for all those creative & generous pvp dimension engineers to advertise their creations.... *hint hint*

    I have never found 4 other people who i can call a team and who will dedicate themselves to the cause. That is why it also never happens.

    I've played plenty of 5v5's using the ranked BG WF at launch, it just really died down after the first two weeks or so. The main problem, aside from not having any incentives (hint hint), is that if you don't have two clerics in your lineup (defiler/puri or defiler/sent), beating a team that does is just about impossible given everything else equal. As you can imagine this greatly limits the number of viable compositions. However, with physician thrown into the mix, and the fact that most people play rogue (I think), we should see a massive increase in the number of viable teams. Also, this effect would be compounded if Trion tweaked chloro a little bit in a pvp-only way. As far as Liberator is concerned, that's just a warden, so no one is gonna que 5s with that.

    So come on Trion... don't give up on this so easily with 2.7 so close. I've already talked to a lot of people that wanted to play ranked 5v5's when 2.7 hits. In short, It gives the competitive ones a skill-based aspect of the game that they want but just haven't been able to play due to prior constraints. I think launching the ranked BG without at least the most basic reward (favor to compensate for consumable uptime) was pretty dumb, but I'd like it to stay in as it was instead of not having it at all.

    i dunno how swapping a 2 healer team with different 2 healer team will really do anything to make team comps interesting, with cc/healing as it is in rift (meaningless/easy) 4dps is pretty much not viable so you are stuck with 3/2 bore fest.

    The interest in 5v5s is already present. For example, a few weeks ago Torhid arranged 4 teams of random people and we were able to get some games in. Until we were sniped by an organized 5s team that also decided to queue when we did, we couldn't compete because not every team had 2 clerics, and no one had really played with each other yet. People want 5v5s, just any good player knows that it's a losing battle if you don't have the standard 2 cleric comp.

    However, the way physician is on the PTS right now leads me to believe that you could see x2 physician compositions no problem, which means you could throw together a team with ease. I realize that the casuals won't ever play 5v5s, but whatever, the game needs at least one facet of skill based play.

    The only way to get healthy participation in 5's, was to place a rating requirement with relic pvp armor/weapons as rewards.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    Maybe they are turning it into a 3v3 q? Might take a bit tho considering how long the 5v5 took. Keep an eye out for 4.0 folks, good things to come!

    This is interesting considering the lack of information on it happening. Like Nerfshot said earlier, I had organized a 5v5 avenue for people a while ago. It was a lot of work and we ended up with about 35 participants. I had planed on doing it again but I guess now we can't. The benefit the 5v5 offered us over Dim PvP is that the Developers still have not fixed the issue of being on different factions in Dimensions.

    With how Trion has/had set up the rated 5v5, it takes more organizing than for a PvE raid guild planning to raid. This is due to the fact that there is no one single shard or guild the participants will be in and you have to have commitments from players so you can build fair teams.

    I also don't understand why they even removed it if it's already in game. There's nothing there that can be exploited in it, and the resources it requires is minimal due to low usages.

    The idea of 5vs5 was bad anyway. They couldnt add any rewards because of potential abuse from multi boxers etc. There are better ideas around which doesnt cause as many abuse problem but I dont think they want to spend time working on pvp content.
    PvP in RIFT is good only @forum.

    I think there should at least be a small favor reward for winning just for the sake of pvp consumble upkeep time, this wouldn't break anything if a multiboxer decided to exploit it since they're not getting any kinds of marks or any prestige. Sure they could stack up on consumables I guess, but they'd be wasting their time. If people caught on to 5v5's, though, then they'd just que into the bots and destroy them, which would prevent the multiboxers from winning games. Then the bots would just be reported and you could say goodbye to those accounts and that's that.
