    Next steps in pendulum methodology.

    Introduces sets not correctly tested prior to releasing that cause chaos.

    Listens to simple requests to have separate battlegrounds queue that would pretty much have no bearing on folks that still just random queue.

    Reduces all battlegrounds to one mode and pits 8-12 people wearing said sets against each other in a small space.

    (I say 8-12 instead of just 12 cuz I gotta give credit to some of the standouts, but we all know most people are going to be using them soon..)

    Eats hot pocket.

    I like the change, but know it will just end up turning into a sweat fest. It would be nice if they could add some new form of PVP battlegrounds instead of the 4v4v4. 8x8 or 12v12 would be amazing.

    With this change some players are return but many will leave ,they calculate if this change is good for game by numbers and games will be harder because many weaker players are play mostly for objective games and they leave with this change.

    I don`t get it, what is the problem with letting people choose?

    Just add the options to the players, let them choose if they want to do a random match/death match/capture de relic and so on

    That being solo or with a premade group

    Bgs will be a [snip] with the most boring and banal mode,and the same premades fighting against each other with the new sets.
    Instead of giving more options they choose to remove even achievement relevant modes for some time...
    Step into the wrong direction if you ask me.

    You cant force someone to fight if they don't want this change will show how much people play deathmatch and how many hate it , and we see what they make next maybe choose modes will return.

    It's literally named Player Versus Player no reason to queue if you don't want to fight.

    Yea, PvP, and PK matters!

    Meh. Even if some people will find this cool, They should do a DM queue only AND a classic one, because things like crazy kings and relics are fun tbh

    Yeah I agree. Always liked fighting for a reason. Having some objective to take/hold. I mean I'm disappointed, but if if the majority of players prefer deathmatch only - I just hope they'll add a separate queue for non-deathmatch in the future.

    I've been noticing a lot of unfamiliar names in BGs, and queues are popping briskly.

    This appears to validate ZoS's hypothesis that DM-only may draw in more players. It sure looks that way, and others in our PVP guild Adastra have noted the same.

    Good on ZoS for trying this out!

    Well, not on Xbox NA. The Qs are longer. Before the change, I was getting an average of less than a minute to be matched with other players on prime time. Now, It takes 5 to 10 minutes 😢.

    I unsubbed for a couple months and wasn't playing. But before that I was playing BGs all the time. My average matchmaking was probably around 5 minutes on Xbox NA solo queue. I've started playing a bit again now that we can play Deathmatch, and in my experience, the queue time is about the same.

    Also more quickly becomes the same few players in each match.

    At times the que does seem quicker but I attribute that to most death matches not lasting as long as other game types.
