    Default Maybe 5% of players run regular WF PMs

    So basically 95% of the PvP population is there to support their play style.

    When I heal and I do so 90% of time, I always let those guys in 5 man PMs on my team die.

    They are relying on you to get focused before they do, so I think it is a good choice.

    Many folks report that they are able to achieve victories in Warfronts without the need for a PM. I'd say that it's an option, and a remarkably effective one for those that choose to use it, but it's not required.

    Problem with PMs is: they ignore MM system.
    E.g. if there are 6 full relic Myrmidons and 14 of Freelancers in queque and 5 of Myrmidons are in Premade, then redistribution is 1 Myrmidon and 9 Freelancers vs 5 Myrmidons and 5 Freelancers instead of 3:7 in both teams.

    Have you tried PuG Warfronts recently, especially after weeklies reset?

    So running a premade is more efficient than going solo. Seems like it's working as intended?

    Nothing stops you from making premade btw. Just sayin'

    The only real "problem" I've experienced with PMs is that the ones NOT in a PM immediately turn into headless chickens "omgosh we has no lead what do we do!!!!".. I mean, the wf and objective is the same as ever so why are you suddenly a lost confused hopeless child when facing a PM? Get it together and make the most of it otherwise better next time.
    Duh.

    This attitude is fine as long as it comes with the self awareness that PMs are a considerably less skillful way to achieve PvP goals and that by using them you are riding on the backs of other players who choose not to. Thus you are really saying that PMs are the design that WFs were intended for all along.

    Please confirm trion, you want all of your PvP players to participate in PvP PMs.

    Then with seperate ques, those ppl could continue to join and be the 1 toon wrecking crew they claim. Win win for everyone.one for anything goes and one for majority that not only like to solo and duo que, but like to face ppl who do the same.

    And it worked Just fine, prior to them digging thier heals in for the minority of players and allowing this.

    What' so bad about having a PuG only queue option? Is it too hard to code? What will it break?

    Egos!

    God forbid a PM run into another PM, oh the tears I have tasted.

    We have to protect them Caeus! We have to save them from themselves!
