    Default Rift warfront matchmaking

    Super good, huge incentive to play more PvP.

    How did you die twice when the other team had no heals? You should be posting a 10-0 screen shot. Terrible.

    12-14, seems relatively balanced

    That was my first thought as well.

    Not a rogue, actually have to take risks.

    Yes, it was balanced on my back.

    You complain when you lose, you complain when you win. Seems fairly balanced when your tears fall on both sides. Remind me why you're still playing when all you do is QQ?

    Trion has no control over who's in queue at any given time.

    Perhaps you'd rather have waited 45 mins for your 'mediocre' tier to pop while the everpresent 'baddies' played ~5 more matches, all in hopes of someday ranking up to the point where you might only get 3 'elite' matches per day, during primetime, westcoast, on weekends.

    Sad and simple fact is: the pvp playerbase isnt big enough to support an elaborately ranked matchmaking system.

    1 out of every 4 or 5 PvP experiences in Rift are actually fun. I got randomed with baddies in a BlightofRogues Chamber right after that that was pretty fun. I carried the team of course. The ability to use the jump pad to that middle platform and choose a player near the edge to kick off and follow down to kill is grate.

    Experiences like that keep me hoping that the next time the bridge they are selling will be real.

    It can get pretty rough sometimes. At times I don't know what is going on with the others. I've rolled in WF's with a gimpy new 60 (my cleric hit 60 before Inq became even more of a boss). I was able to hang top in the damage charts. Think even by the time I had a crystal I was able to play a game where I barley out-did nuku's silly MM. So I know fresh 60 DPS can hang.

    But I see 60's in gear, and my damage is like 3 - 5x more than the next on the team. Or we have 6/15 healers and I can even execute properly as a melee because I eat dirt within 12 seconds. That isn't something match making can control well....that is pure underperformance. I get sometimes that I am decked and sometimes playing an AoE heavy soul. But when stuff like my sin and MM start doing 2 - 3x the next in damage, that is no bueno. Sin and MM can be deadly be are no scoreboard damage champs, that is for sure. At least relative to other Rogue options.

    Balanced matches do happen, it's just the fact they are rare is what upsets people.

    Me included.

    This match was on Friday, I haven't had another WF even come close to being neck-to-neck since then.
