So most threads say the answer to PvP is Oqueue.

Then someone please tell me why isn't it part of the game yet?

Blizzard intentionally designs raiding with the idea that people have certain basic addons, and has never tried to put them into the default UI, which they admit is insufficient. They are addons that have been essential to the core focus of the game for years.

A pvp addon that's a year old isn't in the game yet? Not a surprise.

I didn't know PvP was a question.

On a more serious note, oqueue isn't "the answer to PvP". Oqueue is the answer for those people who have trouble finding groups of people with similar interests to help you complete your objective, whether it be random bgs, RBGs, arenas, world bosses, raiding, or other things.

Most parts of this game are designed to be better with friends. If you don't have friends that want to do the same thing as you at any given moment, oqueue can can help you with that. I personally don't use it, but I would if I ever thought it would help me in a pinch.

Even if they broke OQ it wouldnt change anything. There are countless premades every night on Tich, Illidan, Kel'thuzad, or Darkspear for premades to do regular BGs. Why do people seriously think that will change if Blizzard bans OQ? The only people it would hurt would be casual PvPers who arent in a very large PvP guild or they arent on a very PvP active server but still want to do Rated BGs or run some regular BGs with other people.

That was due to how Oqueue was presented in the forums ad nauseum. It literally became the poster child for premades in pvp. So now anytime a premade or psuedo-premade shows up, Oqueue gets the blame. It is ignorance, but to anyone who was around the forums around six or seven months ago, the only thing you ever got to hear was how it was the be all and end all to everyone's pvp problems.

Thankfully, that died down and Oqueue isn't being marketed in 50% of forum threads like it was. Hopefully with some time, Oqueue will be stop having such a negative stigma about it and people can enjoy what it has to offer. As much as I disagree with a lot of the oqueue regulars, I still see the good the addon has to offer and encourage people to use it.

I play on a ghost town faction. Without Oqueue, i would never be able to run rateds, or even get to kill nalak once a week.

I dont use it for running randoms, but without it, i literally wouldnt be able to do anything.

Yup. They won't outright incorporate an addon intact into the UI, the precedent would be costly.

Yea on a good night theres close to 100 OQ groups. Only like 5 of those are random BG steamroll groups. Most are Warbringers, World Bosses, old raids or RBGs. Removing OQ because only a small % of people use it to do random BGs when most people use it for things that arent usually done on their server seems pretty stupid.

Two of my mains were horde and I was MT with my warrior. I left for a while, came back in 2012 and had to switch to the alliance side. The horde on our server doesn't even have an auction house.
What's messed up is the Medivh server isn't even one of the worst servers out there.

Medivh has around 3,000 level 90 horde, there are servers out there with less than 500.
