5 Man Premades are Fair!!! 10 Man Are Not...

Battlegrounds
*This probably won't be popular but...*

Q: How often have you beaten a full 5m premade when you had an entirely random team of your own?
A: About as many times as you've beaten a 10 man premade.
B: ALWAYS!!! 100%
C: Often. 50%
D: Rarely. 25%

If you answered

A: About as many times as you've beaten a 10 man premade.

You're a WINNER!!!

You can't change one aspect of a game out of fairness sake and allow something just as broken to stay in place just because its been the status quo for a long time.

I know you were attempting to be politicians and make everyone happy but the fact of the matter is you have to be actually fair about something or all the explanations about "doing <insert> for fairness sake" gets ignored by the player base and you just rile up The Tin Foil Hat Brigade the more *special* members of our community.

Bottome line:

They are are called Random BG's for a reason. Remove the ability to queue together or at most with more than 1 other person. Its the only fair thing to do especially now that you proclaimed that 10 man premades are unfair.
Agreed. Even 3 talented players, if in communication with one another, can turn the tide of a game or at least make a big impact. 3 players, with the rest of the team being random and semi-decent, could win a 10 man bg or potentially even a 15 man.
Well last SS Mines CTA I lost I think 4 in a row as a 5 man premade. Before anyone tries to say I'm bad or we were bad it wasn't us... if we stayed together we escorted 1 cart easily. However the other 5 idiots didn't help at all and always lost the other 2 carts. If we split up we could escort one cart but got zerged at the second cart and couldn't take it... again because the other 5 solo players were useless. We tried to give them some instructions on where to go but they refused to listen. This didn't happen in one game, it happened in 4 games. Maybe some were bots, maybe some were "exercising their rights" to be useless, but nonetheless it was pretty much 5 on 10 (and the horde teams were premades each time).

strange i won all my cta ss as a 5 man premade one was clsoe when we ran into a 5 man from kt.
We ran into full or close to full premades each time. The game that we finally won was a nail biter.

for my rogue we just ran into random groups the whole time.

It knows you are grouped with a rogue so it gives you a handicap. :D
I won all my Silver shard CTA games solo queuing.

Look how amazing I am!
Then Q up with some of your friends?...
I answer A too, threw my headset at a wall today. Faced 4, 5 man premades in a row.
