    I really hope theyll implement an actual MMR system where we can see our rating + MMR leaderboards and also be able to lose some...
    Then I might be inclined to play BGs again, this ultdump, double healer, ice-blockade fiesta gets boring if you play more frequently than 1 BG a week.
    But I guess thats too much to ask from ZOS if they cant even keep the PC-EU servers running.

    The issues you have described (accurately) is precisely why an actual MMR ranked queue would be a complete joke.

    I queue solo.

    I also like to staple my nut sack to my thighs.

    Don’t judge.

    And even with that excruciating pain from stapling your nutsack to your thighs, you still probably have a better experience doing that than queuing solo on a high MMR character.

    I do it, I still have fun. It’s a ton better queuing as a healer.
    Looking for any guildies I used to play with:
    Havoc Warhammer - Alair
    LoC EQ2 - Mayi and Iskiab
    Condemned and Tabula Rasa - Rift - Iskiab
    Or anyone else I used to play games with in guilds I’ve forgotten

    Want to know the trick to beating an organized premade?......*leans in close and whispers* play as an organized premade....

    The gig then is to round up some other solos and make ur own.
    Also tho some premades aren't, just good players who know how to win at BG rolling together, tight group, playing objectives etc

    Ok this argument is not the issue though.

    Lots of players know how to and can beat premades, but playing pug is not the same style of play. Some players prefer playing on their own and they want to compete on a playing field of the same type of players. Separating pugs from premades is not about winning or losing fundamentally. Fundamentally it's about having more spontaneous and dynamic fights and don't end with your skill bar and character being locked down while you get spammed with ults. Because that's not really PvP, that's maybe what a few players consider PvP, but there is no dynamic fighting happening there.

    I don’t play BG’s anymore due to MMR. Not worth my time sitting in a 10+ minute que only to face the sweatiest 4 man out there while I’m in a team of 3

    This, except I do still play and que solo because I don't like feeling like a bully but I love to fight. Even a "partial premade" of 2-4 players is totally game breaking if those 2-4 players are actually good at playing with each other and build thier class and gear choices to be effective together.

    This isnt Warsong Gulch with 10 v 10 or Arathi Basin with 15 v 15. Heck, it isn't even a Battle of Khylo or Summoner's Rift where 2 players makes up less than half the team.

    Pug v premade in any form is totally broken. This is the #1 BG problem. We've been trying to tell the Devs for months. Its disgusting that it feels like every post we make here dissapears into someone's digital trashcan. So many posts, by so many different people, for so long! Listen closely as you hit the "POST REPLY" button and you can hear the soft laughter of the Dev team at our dilligent and logical efforts to help make this game better.

    Good trick is to pull some people out of a social guild to group with, who do not PvP. Seems to put you in an MMR bracket of not-all premades/bajillion year wait times. And the lower bracket let's you have a major impact to push a win for the day.

    MMR is based on an average of the group, which then gets multiplied by the “premade” factor.
