Hi

There is a very big diference between the amount of game types
Here is my total this week:

Deathmatch 20k points not in Leaderboards
Land Games 55k points 20th Leaderboards about 80% Relic and only 20% Chaosball
Flag Games 40k point 6th on Leaderboards about 50% King and 50% Domination

Total amount are around 60% Flag ; 30 % Land ; 10% Deathmatch. Less then 10 deathmatches in all week
Dont blame RNG because in total leaderboars you will see all of the 100 players in deathmatch leaderboards have 70% less points then the other games and deathmatch does give moore.

    well let us choose what we wana play, and all problems are gone.

    I dont get why they added RNG to this in the First place. If someone wants to play Deathmatch, then let him Queue for Deathmatch, and nothing else.

    Add in a Queue counter, which counts how many ppl are queuing for "chasball" for example, and ppl see oh there are 11 queing for chaos, Im gona Queue aswell so we're 12 and can get started.

    It has always been that way. If ZOS let us choose I think Deathmatch would be the most popular mode. By far. As they don’t want to have separate queues we are forced to play Chaos Ball and, worst of all, Domination instead.
    Main characters:
    Feanor the Believer - AD Altmer mSorc - AR 45 - Flawless Conqueror (PC EU)
    Idril Arnanor - AD Altmer mSorc - CP 217 - Stormproof (PC NA)

    Other characters:
    Necrophilius Killgood - DC Imperial Necromancer
    Fearscales - AD Argonian Templar - Stormproof (healer)
    Draco Imperialis - AD Imperial DK (tank)
    Cabed Naearamarth - AD Dunmer mDK
    Valirion Willowthorne - AD Bosmer stamBlade
    Turuna - AD Altmer magBlade
    Kheled Zaram - AD Redguard stamDK
    Kibil Nala - AD Redguard stamSorc - Stormproof
    Yavanna Kémentárí - AD Breton magWarden
    Azog gro-Ghâsh - EP Orc stamWarden
    Vidar Drakenblød - DC Nord mDK
    Marquis de Peyrac - DC Breton mSorc - Stormproof
    Rawlith Khaj'ra - AD Khajiit stamWarden
    Tu'waccah - AD Redguard Stamplar

    All chars 50 @ CP 1600+. Playing and enjoying PvP with RdK mostly on PC EU.

    I just don't think there are enough players in the BGs population pool at any given time to allow seperate queues. Now obviously we don't have this information but I can't think of any other explanation as to why they haven't been introduced yet. I have to imagine that's why they just increased the AP reward for BGs matches, to try and get more people in there. I'm also thinking that once the new chapter comes out this summer they might open up BGs to all players, even those who don't have Morrowind. This would go a long way towards getting the BG population healthy enough for different queues for different game-modes. They don't even have enough people playing for a CP queue and a non-CP queue let alone different game-mode queues.

    Would be great to see CP and non CP queues, together with different modes to choose.
    They don't even have enough people playing for a CP queue and a non-CP queue let alone different game-mode queues.

    Agree :/ Sometimes I could get like 2-3 minute waiting before ready check - meaning it was either broken, or there were not even 12 people queuing at the same time on the whole server :o
    I think Deathmatch would be the most popular mode

    Definitely :smiley: Especially when I was grinding for that beautiful red color, I just had to squeeze every kill I could get - no matter what game mode it was. One time some group member would say "Wtf, it's not a death match..." Other time someone would say that if you don't take flags you don't belong to batlegrounds and should go zerg to Cyro (hilarious one, that's why I remember it so well) :D I want to join some quick PvP without having to waste time in horse simulator and huge Cyrodiil queues, and it's unfortunate that we can't choose preferred game mode.

    I have not done BGs in this game yet but one method to deal with random vs static queues is randoms would get bonus rewards and static gets the basic.

    It's weird, I feel like half my games are made up of crazy king these days, with the rest being a mix of domination and CTF. Deathmatch and Chaosball seem to be non-existent.

    Also now that I think of it, can we revert CTF. I don't like playing bait the tank away from the flag. And I miss my mad rushes with stam sorc speed supercharged with immovable pots.

    I play a character called "Gives Me Wood Elf" because I am a mature and sensible person.

    People like you should stick to Cyrodiil.
    You were by far the best player, yet your group lost.
    Edit: actually your group had two monster players and you still lost.
    With so many dead enemy players around it is an achievement in itself to lose that game.

    BGs as a whole are a bit of a mess.

    Remove sigil from DM.

    Make flag cap instant again. There is no point in skilled runs. The tank just stands and interrupts. You kill, they respawn and interrupt. Its pathetic. But to prevent over speed running, cap speed with the ball.

    Make flags in domination (not crazy king,) remain white whilst contested no matter the number. No point in fighting over them as is. You fight with numbers, the other flags are flipped. You fight in 1/2 (even if you are better) the group with more numbers will just flip and run.

    Chaos the ball should spawn middle every drop. ATM its just tank/healers holding in spawn.

    I disagree with selecting.

    I thought I only liked death match, then played them all and actually love the mix now. People will just go DM and others will die as people won't give them chance.

    Crazy king I dislike, it's just odd. But rest on a par

    @leandro.800ub17_ESO it is RNG and an understanding of how the leaderboards work.

    Flag Games leaderboard is two game modes - CTR and chaosball. Land grab is two game modes - Dominaion and Crazy King. Death match is just one game mode

    So the scores in DM leaderboards should be about half as high as the other two.
