    Explain to me how 2 raids are able to guarantee a stack on the same faction.

    Oh. You can't. Okay.

    They know the potential exploiting going on with forming PM's vs. Pugs.

    Not everyone who joins the game knows about HK and the premade channel. Tons of NEW players are currently being farmed out in cq. I know someone who didn't hear about HK channel for the last 3 months they have been playing the game until I told them about it.

    Also, not everyone is getting into premades. That is a joke. I have been told "...we are full" like a dozen times in the last 2 weeks.

    Some new leaders see a specific person is forming and they just decide to not form to the point that those veteran leaders are forming in secret so they have people to farm.


    I know other premade leaders are forming in secret as well. And they use that channel to see who is forming so that they can intentionally form against them.
    What in the actual **** are you smoking?

    If you're getting a reply from a lead that they are full then they either have enough of a certain spec or are completely full. Second, leaders not forming in channels are likely forming with their guild. Rgi always asks his guild members BEFORE going in HK chat. Same with a few other leads.

    As a CQ lead, I can say that I have never stopped forming based on who else was forming or who else could be forming. Other leads normally form when they see there will be competition.
    Everything after Storm Legion was a mistake. ()

    I'm fine thanks

    though the cyclone made landfall as a category 5 tropical cyclone, by the time it had reached me it had wound down to just a severe thunderstorm.

    I'd have replied earlier, but an raider took exception to my preference for pvp over exploiting raid content, and had me sent to the back of the bus. lesson learned, know your place and don't drink from the same water fountain as raiders.

    Queensland is often referred to as the "top end" of Australia, and saying "up there" is perfectly fine for those south of the tweed.

    Premades are fine if the matching system actually worked as intended.

    I relented and did another CQ this morning. Played for Dom. By time I had finished the turrets on our one extractor (5%). NS I think it was had 61%. At that point it went to the timer. Under 5 minutes.

    Is this the approved TRION plan where one PreMade rolls into town, clears the timer in under 5 and farm the rewards? Vaguely reminds me of the favored RAIDER status.

    Still on the list of things to get done folks.

    It is in JIRA (our tracking software) assigned to an engineer, and prioritized vs their other tasks.

    When we talk about future stuff, you cannot assume it is going to land in one week, or two weeks. It will be tested when it is done, no one is ignoring this.

    Do you really not see how 2 out of 4 premades always happens? I mean literally the only way that you could have a "perfect" system would be if there were 3 premades and they landed on all three factions... regardless with 4.... there will always be a faction with 2 premades every time!

    Yeah, nowadays CQ premades are smarter.

    They don't farm the pugs from the word 'Go!'. They let them get a few extractors, and even let them win a few faction vs faction battles, then when pug numbers on the other 2 opposing factions get big enough, "choo! choo!" premade farm train!

    If not limiting the groups to 5 players, then how about limiting the groups to Raids. If you do NOT have a 20 man raid group, you cannot join CQ. This holds true until all teams have 2 raids on them. Then single queuing is allowed.

    Edit: Of course, this would also require the creation of a channel for forming CQ groups, and a notification that CQ would begin about 10 minutes prior to its start, so people could form their groups together.

    I only solo queue for WF and CQ, and I do that for a reason.

    I want every PVP game I play to be different. I like the randomness of the teams' compositions and gear/skill-levels and the challenge of adapting my playstyle to benefit my team in a balanced matchup.

    I don't want to play with the same NTE/raid geared, experienced team (of premades) and do the same facerolling stuff (to green gear pugs) most of the time; that would be too close to PVE for my comfort.
