Premade Bgs = Twink bgs

It is sad that you think putting players of relatively equal skill together (instead of roflstomping the majority of the PUGs you face) as punishment.

When people are looking for fast/easy honour via bg's, queueing with skilled friends is a more reliable way to go about getting that honour, than hoping you get some great pugs.
Premades get put against teams of relatively equal skill in RBG's. This coincided with the change related to group queues not being able to be more than 5 people. So at most you can only premade half of a 10 man team.
And yes, forcing people into another kind of queue for playing with friends (even when they aren't all pr0 l33t skilled friends), would be quite annoying.
We have random BGs, and we have RBGs, which are the actual "premades" we don't need another kind of queue for BGs.
u queue as a group with 4+ people in your server, you join a seperate bg queue for premades only
There are add-ons that will get around this. And, of course, there's always voice chat and a countdown. Alliance AV pre-mades circa 2.3 are testament to the efficacy of this method.
With the direction Blizzard is moving with cross-server functionality sorting by server would probably not work either. Seems the only solution is for Horde to start rolling in pre-mades.

exactly right, why would i want to go into a bg where everyone wants to be a leeroy when i can get 4 other like minded people and apply tactics and dominate the bg
look up good servers for your faction. the server my alli is one is like a 90% alli to 10% horde population. we faceroll. however, i also have a hordie on a predominantly horde server, and we do nothing but faceroll all day.
Currently horde has instant Q's so a horde pug gets put up against a ton of ally premades
nobody is saying a premade should be punished for being a premade. Unless you are forming a premade for the specific intention of rolling pugs, it really shouldn't be that bad to wait a few minutes longer to get a q more often against another premade.
Players don't Q up to be rolled by premades and it reduces the pvp experience for a ton of casual players.
Honestly it is not that bad if you get a premade that just finishes the game hella fast. It sucks when you get a premade that farms you for the entire time limit of that bg. Then you are forced to /afk out and get a 15 minute Q penalty.
Bliz just needs to change the Q system a bit or let peeps bail on a bg without a penalty. Before the penalty was implemented, nobody complained much about pug vs premade because they could just bail on that game and get into another one. Premade would just be left facing an empty team and there is nothing wrong with that.
