Then why not try to lure some of those premades back? Why are we so happy and content to see one part of the community all but gone from the game?

No SCs no rewards no scores just a place for premades to go bash each others skulls in.
No, that's not what premades want .
All though this server has a healthy population to support rvr and pve, i don't think it has a healthy premade population to have SCs and other things/rewards tied to a premade only system. No matter what angle or carrot is put on forcing people to premade, it won't change much if anything at all and the same premades will fight each other over and over. If one premade dominates consistently it most likely will just become a dead system that no one uses. The people that pug will still pug SCs the people that zerg rvr will still zerg and the pve crowd will still do that. You won't magically see people creating groups to do premade ladders or premade only SCs when that is not how they predominately play.
And on the contrary, no one was doing Gunbad until it was given sufficient incentives; the same would also prove to be true for scenarios, or RvR, or PQs, or Roleplaying. People will do whatever is attractive to do.
