random bgs don't matter, they don't affect rating and unless for some bizarre reason you are obsessed with your w/i ratio. i can't really see why occasionally getting rolled by a premade is such a big deal. its happened to me, it happenes to everyone, i don't get why people are so insulted by it, you just accept it as part of bging and move on. and its not like you don't have the exact same tools at your disposal to do the exact same thing.
maybe i just hate saying no to my friends
bring the light.
it's not really occasional anymore, it's absolutely rife throughout the community.
Seems everyone just went "cant beat em, join em"
do you really have so few friends that you can't make bg groups with them?
i've rolled full 15 man premades with a 5 man group. i've solo queued into a 13 man premade and forced a loss for them because they pissed me off. i've had amazing fights of 15v15 premades. premades don't guarantee wins, what's more it gives you a chance to relax and pvp with your friends without worrying about your rating.

I have plenty of friends, however not all of them are interested in pvp.
People who do premades with "friends" these friends are generally randoms you found from spamming in trade or a thread on forums or people you met on openraid.us
And yeah I've soloed a full 10man team by myself too because I felt like it.
premade vs premade is fine, i'm sure some people out there actually want to do that and that's where you find rbg and arena players.
People using openraid or pre-form are just looking for easy wins with no challenge because they're either lazy or insecure.
I can relax and pvp with my friends using the set rules defined in game by queuing as a maximum party of 5. It often does result in easy wins in 5-15 mans but at the same time we might meet another team of 3-5 and there actually is a fight worth fighting.
I kind of agree that this addon should not be allowed. Simply because it is bypassing a game limitation. If blizzard intended people to be able to make premades for battleground finder they would have added the option to queue as an accordingly-sized raid. However, since they have not, and this is kind of lame. This addon should just be broken and never return in any way, shape or form.
Premades at the core, are a group of people who aren't going to afk or selfishly screw over the team while communicating over VOIP.
1. Blizzard punishes people who afk with the report system.
2. I highly doubt Blizzard's design goal for BGs is for people to screw over their team.
3. Blizzard put a VOIP system into the game because they want people to communicate.
According to these criteria, premades fulfill the essence of what Blizzard intended with BGs.
It would be impossible to determine if you were facing a premade or a pug if people worked together and WoW didn't have a PoS VOIP system.
yet the limitation is with 5 people joining the queue at the same time, blue posts also have stated they do not like the use of this addon.
The addon allows people to make a premade group of a certain player level, a full premade of this is not what is intended by the game. Because fighting such a team as randomly compiled BG team is simply not fun.
I have used this addon to get the AV Blitz and wow the amount of times that we had to queue/requeue just to get everyone in was so boring I don't know can people use this all day everyday to power farm for one achievement that is there to reaward who has done bg's over the course of many years. Just stop using this and graveyard camping.
That makes it an organized raid. Which is a significant advantage over a randomly compiled team.
Also premades more often than not require you to be pvp armored to the teeth. Aswell as putting up proper healer/tank/dps balances.
All in all, it's WAY stronger than what random bg finder does for you, hence it should not be posseble.
I've only seen the openraid premades for achievements and HKs have gear requirements. There are plenty of public premades that openly invite anyone who wants to join. The only consideration is proper healer balance (which the game already tries to do).
the question here is, why isnt preform AV baseline ingame? the whole queuing as 5man is fine is bullcrap, bring back the old system and remove the limit!
