    I would personally prefer solo/duo que for the regular bgs, but a rated group league every weekend in the evening. Where guilds and groups of friends can fight other premade groups. With an actual leaderboard with a win/loose rating.

    Think there should only be a max of 2 players queued together.

    Then make solo queue the ranked queue.

    We should have Solo and Flex queue. The people that prefer to go solo can go solo, those that don't mind take Flex and those who want to group also take Flex. The rest should be handled by the MMR system.

    I'd honestly love all the options, but particularly solo and duo. I've been busy lately introducing new players to pvp.

    A duo queue sounds amazing for people wanting to teach a guildie about PVP. I'd totally bring people along if that became a thing.

    I used to queue duo before the changes to teach guildies. So yeah, I miss that. Harder to teach in IC or Cyrodil.

    Wow, I'm surprised there are so many solo queue people. I like solo queue because I just want the daily XP and in a group, I'd feel like I would need to have a more serious build. I only do under 50 since I just do it when leveling and my alts just use the same level 18 crafted tanking gear hand-me-downs.

    I'm not sure which option this would be on the poll, but my preference would be that you can queue as either a pre-made group or solo but pre-made groups are matched against other pre-made groups and PUGs are matched against other PUGs.

    I'm not sure what to do about partial groups however. It seems like a good thing to encourage for people who want to play together but can't get a full group together but difficult to sort. If 2 people queue together I guess they could be paired with another 2 and put into the pre-made group matches.

    But doing that with a group of 3 means pulling 1 person out the PUG queue and putting them into a match where everyone else except them is in pre-made teams, which seems like it could go badly. Equally putting a 3-person team with 1 random extra up against a pure PUG group seems like giving them an unfair advantage.

    I exclusively queued with one or two people in BG's.

    I don't play enough to have it happen so that I have time to play solo when my friends are on.... I play with them and choose between available activities that we can do together.

    Now, therefore, I don't get to play BG's at all because spending time with friends > using BG functionality.

    Bring back group queue!!!!!

    Whoa, no one's here to make friends. Solo queue keeps it fair for those of us who won't or can't make friends.

    Hey now, you just gave me an idea, what if we FORCE people to queue with others in other to play battlegrounds, ie, no solo queueing allowed?

    LoL, technically sure, but what IF, we forced players to form groups before queueing for a battleground??

    I've never played a video game with the goal of making friends. That being said, I enjoy guild interactions and am a generally social person.

    If I do a BG, it is spur of the moment for XP and I do a poor job at it. I would probably never do a BG if it required any sort of coordination. I'll coordinate for trials. That is about it. The one time in the last two years I did a dungeon with a pre-formed group was when I was tested for a trials guild. It is possible there have been one or two cases where someone in guild chat asked for a tank and I joined them in a dungeon. In general though, I don't want to wait for groups to be formed. I just want to queue and get in there and get the XP or monster helm.

    Most wouldn't bother with battlegrounds, would be my guess. Even those who like to group in MMOs tend not to want to be forced into doing so.

    I'm not interested in battlegrounds, but if I was - or if I was to be tempted to take a look - I'd want a choice, and I'd want that choice to include the playstyle that is probably most common in the rest of the game, namely running solo.

    Solo/Group.

    Sometimes I want to play there and then, sometimes I want to play with friends.

    Don't get me wrong. Solo-only is better than group-only. But even better would be having both.
