    Question Potentially stupid Warfront question but bear with me...

    Is there any way to deliberately create 2 20-man teams, choose a particular warfront location, and slug it out there?

    I ask this because I am really wanting to film some epic battle scenes in Port Scion, with Guardians and Defiants pounding on one another, but with some measure of CONTROL. I'm wanting a way to have myself on one team, my husband on the other (so we have two 'cameras' as it were), and the remaining 38 people battling in various and sundry locations.

    For example:

    "Okay, Cathedral battle! Guardians, you're holding the church... archers/ranged folks on the steps, melee in front - LOOK IMPRESSIVE! Gimme a sec to get in position to film... okay, I'm focusing on the Guardians... Defiants... on my mark... you're gonna charge! Everyone run STRAIGHT past Bloodspeaker... okay... GO! Okay, that was good..."

    (I used to be able to do this to some degree in City of Heroes because folks were pretty understanding if I wanted to use the PvP zones to film, and understood that the woman in neon pink was the noncombatant trying to film.)

    I don't care about loot; it has nothing to do with achievements or objectives or anything.

    It's just so I can film.

    As far as i know, pre-mades aren't that big in normal warfronts. CQ, yes.

    One way we did this a long time ago...we used to have PVP tournaments on the PTS in the old Stillmoor CQ. It's possible to do it there but does take some coordination.

    Have you tried any of this in a PVP dimension?

    No - like I said, I'm wanting to do this in Port Scion, and unfortunately, that's not available as a dimension. (IT'D BE AWESOME IF IT WERE!

    Damn... was really hoping there'd be a way to do this.

    You could always recruit the number of people you need from friends and the likes and goto the PTS and Specific que

    5 is the max you can queue WFs with.

    *sighs*

    Well, at least I asked - thank you to them's that answered. Maybe if I grovel, I can get a dev to help me work out something on the PTS.

    (Then the trick will be finding 38 or more players who want to help...)

    I think there is a shadow scion dimension.
    but yeah, you could probably pull this off on the PTS.
    your player distribution might be a bit random, as you cant queue as 20. but you could queue in groups of five, and you'd pretty much be the only ones queuing if its on the PTS.

    That dim I have... only problem... it's only the outside. Believe me, when I bought the uber-version, I was *THRILLED* that I'd finally have a version of Port Scion... only to discover it's only the front causeway. I wanted to scream, I was so frustrated.

    But I really do appreciate the suggestion.
