Subject says it all.

I will be completely absorted by Rated BGs!

How about you guys?

Not as much, since they revealed you had to queue as a full group instead of solo or w/ a couple of friends

I am hoping that blizz is able to work it after learning what they did from arenas

I'm looking forward to it. Might be able to get folks that normally wouldn't do them to go.

You mean you would really try to earn rating with 8 pugs in your group? That would be like queueing solo for 3's or 5's.

This has been known for months, although they did a poor job of getting much info about rated BGs out there.

I'm crazy excited about rated BGs.

It would be cool if you could just queue and get with people with your same rating. Though having good rating doesn't mean good player all the time. And getting people on vent is quite more effective.

Single queueing has its risks.

Make your own premade? I've been forming up premades on weekends for months now just so I know who both wants to do rated BGs and who is good at it. Just start inviting the people you know who like to pvp, then have them invite the people THEY know to pvp. Eventually you will have a long list of people with whom you can do rated BGs with.

It's not that hard.

I don't quite understand the nuance of how the rating will work.

Will it just take the average of the ratings of the people in the group? Will it be based on the highest rated member of the group?

Answers some questions but not all.


Jynks I do know that there will be 2 ratings, much like arena. One will be an internal matchmaker rating which should be the one used to determine who we fight. I would guess that the system will use either the average or the median value of all the ratings on the team. Does anyone know what arena currently uses?
is there a way to form groups across your battle group, as my server is not ally friendly.

I am, but I really hope it's casual friendly.

I'm personally let down by them for one reason, and one reason only... It's practically arena... BECAUSE, you have to be in a full 10 man group, and thats the stupidest thing EVER!

Requiring a group is a good thing, it makes more more serious matches. As for the topic I'm extremely excited.

This guy is exactly right, eventually you will find a group you love to play with.

I just wish there was the ability to que with 5.

My server is awful... we bring people on our realm to pvp with us and i would have rather had that warlock in heirlooms come with from random queues.

Its going to force us into a server transfer eventually. I AM excited for rated BG's.

The gear is the same regardless rated or not, i just thought it would be a neat system to get ranked... if you want to PUG ranked... fine thats your risk of losing points with a bunch of randoms... but let us take that risk?

Anyways... i will love killing these 2k+ bg rated characters in my "welfare epic pvp set" their tears taste the best.
