Weekend event solo/duo queue like Discordant Skirmish

Post#1 » Sun Feb 11, 2024 9:49 am

Why isn't there an option for this when it's an option for every other scenario? Every weekend event is just premades from both sides farming pugs who are allured by the 50% bonus renown or are forced to doing the event for the rewards. Of course there's always the option to form a 2/2/2 party yourself, but sometimes you only have time for a few matches and don't want to bother forming a team. Also as a tank and rdps player, it is considerably harder to find an SC party as an RDPS so the whole "just make your own premade" doesn't apply equally to all classes. Let the premades battle it out amongst themselves and the pugs battle amongst themselves in these event SCs, you already can't control what happens in open RvR so at least give us that option in SCs.

Hey,

I understand your frustration (from point of mainly solo player), but this is group oriented game. Nobody stopping you from organising your premade or skipping SC (skip event or using different path to level CR/RR).

Good luck what ever you choose
ORDER
Sandinio - mDPS follower KotBS - 40/80
Acutor - Bombing BW - 40/68
Derrak - retired Slayer - 40/4x
Gurat - sWP - 40/4x
and few others

DESTRO
Sandiago - new mDPS follower BG 40
Guraoth - sDoK to see the difference to sWP 40

The lack of healers on destro is stopping everyone there from doing anyhting aside of being farmed by bis premades with 1-2 slayers.
The match maker has major issues, systemic ones, that can not be countered by the players themselves. You can talk high and mighty if you are on the side that has more people in queue, but you will find, that you get less and less sc pops. This trend has already started for any solo players on order and their 30min+ invite times.

They made ranked so premades could fight other premades. None of them wanted to do it. They want to farm random pugs.

You're gonna hear the tired old "it's a group game" comments from people nonstop bringing this up.

Would it shock you if i told you the problem is also the same on order against destro premades? Who would have thought it's not just single sided problem!

Here is a simple solution- ignore the weekend scs. I'm doing it for years, and it works very fine.

Sad truth.
Its a very silly point of view to preach, do these people really think Mythic entertainment and EA games set out of their way when they built this game to NOT appeal to the mass audience of casual solo players all playing world of warcraft and instead focus on the top 20% of competitive folks?

Makes me laugh.

1/3 of classes are not viable for ranked. Ranked is a niche where comps matter way more.
So everytime time someone says to just queue ranked it doesnt make sense at all when a lot of classes are not viable for it.
