    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.

    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.

    There should be a separate queue for pre-mades. Pugs would be waiting maybe 2-3 more minutes to get grouped. Pre-mades would probably wait an hour, but so what? You wanna play easy mode? Here's your queue 🤷‍♂️

    Your-Ex - AD MagBlade
    Falathren - AD MagSorc
    F'lathren - AD StamDen

    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 and the two other teammates of mine are the most garbage pvpers I’ve ever encountered.

    I have yet to play an online BG/MOBA game that will allow the game to start with an imbalanced population. A team of 3 vs a team of 4 for example. The game will normally either abandon or not start until all teams are completed. And if a teammate of yours ragequits or disconnects it will usually allow you to leave the game as well, a reasonable amount of time after, without a penalty.

    ESO will start BGs with teams of 3 randoms vs 4-man premades. And even after a teammate of your leaves and you're left in 2 vs 4, it will still punish you with a 20 min penalty if you leave. That's when the match-making even works because any time there's a high volume of players it just craps out and you can't even queue. And don' forget that MMR is char based so you can always roll new chars to pugstomp newbies.

    By far the worst match-making mechanism I've ever experienced in a game and I've been gaming since 2001. The devs who wrote this should hang their heads in shame. Even just randomly filling up teams in first-come-first-serve fashion would work better than this mess. It would at least allow for games balanced in numbers and very quick queues.

    Super glue is a more satisfying option, and you can use overflow to style the "carpet"
