Premades and You

Battlegrounds
1 2 3 13 Next
I come to the forums often and see a lot of post by people who had a bad experience against a premade in a battleground. Their reactions are mostly the same and boil down to, "Blizzard, please do something about premades in randoms." it's a natural reaction, but my advise is to join them. Whether you're Horde or Alliance, both sides have some great premades. Some of the best battlegrounds are premade vs. premade. I realize people well be quick to say that is what RBG's are for, but not everybody has time to run them regularly. Maybe they have a fresh 85 they would like to gear up. Some people might be having trouble getting their achievements for "Battlemaster" because nobody will help them in the random BG. Premades are a great avenue to help with this.

What I would like to try and do here is make a thread and use it as a directory for both Horde and Alliance to come and find a premade group that fits them. So, if you are a premade leader, please post how players can contact you and join. Even if you are in the twink brackets, feel free to post info. If you have a thread already for your premade, you can post the link. I will try to update regularly. Thank you and see you on the battlefield.

Most premades require Preform AV Enabler Add on. Please download prior to joining.

nice, fix premade inequallity against pugs by creating even more premades
No, not really. I am attempting to fix the so called "problem" by creating a resource for players to go to and join the premades instead of raging on the forums about them.
lol...I came back to wow after a long hiatus in Rift and Swtor. I am shocked at how horrible the pvp is now, is laughable, never seen anything so messed up. Good luck to all you new players, youre gonna get facerolled and one-shotted faster than you can blink. why Blizz hasnt seperated random from premades after 8 years boggles the mind.

Also, this suggestion is laughable (though nowhere near as sad as pvp in wow) -- go make your own premade. Problem is, no one wants a fresh 85 in their premade, and, well, losing and trying to gear is painful (roughly 10 times worse than Rift and Swtor, maybe 15).
I once did a ''premade'' back in... uhhh... early TBC I think... ANYWAY, we had chars from 10-19 with all varying gear. Guess wot, we were just playing with friends, and its impossible to distinguish what is a premade and what are just friends.

Thats why there is a 5 man cap, to minimise complete and utter domination in BG's.

So all those ''gruelling'' years, you still have friends who like to queue with each other no matter how crappy your friend is.

Actually not true. It just depends on what group you join.

people run premades to help gear their friends all the time
/salute Ghantsu for providing a practical, simple idea backed by a logical argument.
Cheers for adding the BG Specialists link.

PvP is a team game. I cannot understand how some get so upset by others actually forming teams. Premades increase your chances of winning, improve your individual PvP skill and enhance your overall PvP game experience. If you shun premades out of some imagined notion of "fairness," you deserve to be farmed. There is no "fair" in PvP. Nature is neither kind nor cruel; it's indifferent. You have to decide whether you want to be the rabbit or one of the wolves.

Thank you Eugenez.
Do something about people in leveling/questing blues and greens in the battlegrounds, then people won't feel like they are forced to roll with premades. It's seriously the dumb!@#$ undergeardies that are making life hell for everyone. You cant carry these scrubs unless you roll with 5 good players.
If you have the time to sit and organize 40 people to run a pre made, then you have the time to do rated battlegrounds.

Don't try to bull!@#$ on these forums.


I do value your input Thugwart, however, I don't organize anything. I do participate often and enjoy them. Also, you'll be amazed how fast a 40 man premade can fill up and stay full all day and into the wee hours of the morning :)

As I mentioned before, this is a resource, not a thread to organize. It only directs people to those that do organize them.

Hmm, I'm not sure if I can do anything personally to help you there.
I don't want to get too off topic, but veteran players tend to forget that you have to start somewhere. Everybody was new once.

Rath Strat AV's for example doesn't really have a gear requirement within reason, so that might be a route for some to take if they so choose.
rbgs aren't the solution to playing with 9 friends. First of all you need the right comp, including a certain number of healers a prot warrior and then a moonkin lock and a pve loser legendary rogue (when is the last time I've seen a rogue in rbgs that didn't have legendaries?). Secondly, people are at different ratings, thirdly most of the time people who know how to play the game go into battlegrounds is to help gear friends and rbgs aren't where you gear up from greens.

Which is how I know you are lying.


What lie do you speak of?
I see no claims of any sort. Just a resource as stated.

Waiting on the right que alone is time commitment enough that you could be involved in a rated battleground.


Only about 5-10 min on the Horde side. I'm not sure about the Alliance good sir.
On AV weekends however, it can be up to 20 min.

Also, this thread is in regards to premade battlegrounds, not rated battlegrounds. If you would like to discuss RBG's, I'm sure there are other threads available.
Apparently you can't play with your friends outside of RBGs. And if you do it can't possibly be for fun, but only to grief and HK farm. Who knew?
Alliance has been doing that most of the time (they can't win without a premade)
so i am doing that since yesterday
