ZOS (@ZOS_GinaBruno),
You have a dedicated battlegrounds playing community here that has been very clear about wanting to be able to play Deathmatch more frequently. The absolute silence from you in the face of this very fair request is disheartening. A couple more nights like this and I'll be over it.

    Forums are just a part of the community, most players don't come on the forums, people usually come here to complain, which I do sometimes too. That's why ZOS and companies like Blizzard rarely listen to the forums. I for one enjoy objectives.

    I enjoy dominion a lot,chaosball is entirely one sided most of the time though.
    Capture the relic and chaosball are not my strongsuits but chaosball is legitimate pain.
    Death match depends too much on whatever the meta is,for it to be fun or not,at least in higher mmr matches.

    When we could select game modes, Deathmatch always had the fastest queue times, and the highest leaderboard scores. And while the forums are only a sample of the player base, large enough samples can be representative of the whole. There's ample data reflecting that a majority of battlegrounds players prefer deathmatch.

    When I played Chaosball solo, the other three teammates were very weak bow-only beginners.
    I got the Chaosball for victory, scored 500 points alone, killed more than anyone else, and died less than anyone else.
    I'm a Nightblade with a glass cannon build, so it's not suitable for taking a Chaosball, but I'm enjoy because I'll try my best at any rule.
    I'm happy random games now. It's very exciting.

    You could also random queue before.

    Maybe they do Specific BG which would include premades where you can choose between 2 options, TDM and OBJ. But also have a SOLO Random BG Q

    Specific BG > Choose One TDM or OBJ (Random obj game). Premades allowed in all modes.
    Random Solo BG > No Sub-menu, Q's for anything in the pool. No Premades.

    MurderMostFoul: The name checks out, this is a legit request! This person requires more Deathmatches and fewer Chaosballs. Please make it happen! :)

    I mean I do wish it had a queue option. But they could just organize it like dungeons: There's a guy you talk to, and he says you need to win a Chaosball match, or you need to win a Domination match. Then, you have the option to queue for that specific match, which if you win, the NPC gives a specific reward (maybe not as good as keys for monster set pieces, but something to go for). BUT then there is a random queue with the extra exp and rewards, like with a random normal dungeon. The reason, I'm guessing, that they don't have an option to specifically queue for a type of match is because they don't want people neglecting the other content and just playing Deathmatch. But if the daily random is still an option, everyone will still run the other matches via that option.

    I'm in BG guild, and peeps just ignore objectives and go for the kills. Almost all top-MMR 4man do the same.

    That sounds like "not listening to feedback because the only feedback they're getting is negative feedback". Maybe that's the point. People who play BG are disappointed and people who don't play BG won't leave any feedback.

    This is anti-consumer tactics and ZOS is not the toxic, anti-consumer and money hungry company that Blizzard is.

    When death match was selectable, it had the lowest queue times, even beating out random, which you would expect more ppl to select for their dailies.
