I do not think queing as a healer gives you faster que times.

Last time I got 6 healers in 10 man team. We lost because we were just able to stand and wait for death without ability to kill anybody. :P
But I'm not missing the point. I completely understand that 10 DPS vs 7 DPS and 3 Healers are most likely going to end in a loss for me. But US queue times are 15 minutes right now for 20 minute games. All day yesterday (approx 6 hours) I queued and got 2 healers at most in my games and most (~75%) of my games had 0 healers.
So assuming losses, ~15 minute queue for a 20 minute game = ~35 minutes total for ~150 honor. But if I was to wait for 3 healers, I can probably safely assume that I'll be in queue for ~45 minutes for a 20 minute game = ~65 minutes for ~150 honor (loss).
Maybe if I had less than 5 minute queues I'd be cool with that, but right now I can double my honor gain even if I lose every game right now.
If you play a hybrid class you can que as what ever you want kinda stupid
Can I get into those healer-filled alliance BGs? Whenever I play I seem to be meeting horde teams with full geared warriors and two full-geared healers steamrolling everyone.
I'm just trying to gear up my alts, why won't you fuckers let me!! *glares at all healers* -.-
Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the characters that has queued as healer get a healer sign whenever they enter and then get switched to dps if that is their current spec? If so, this would be the perfect time for a douche addon that tells on you. If you get voted off for this reason queuing as healer will soon not be worth it at all.
Also, I usually queue only as dps when I heal a bg, the few minutes extra waiting is totally worth it on my realm. I am sure I'm not the only one but it probably does not even out in the end anyway.
An easy solution for this would be they locked players to use the healing spec if they are signed up as healer.
Either way, it's a legacy function that doesn't work... I dont know why people think it means anything.
All they need to do is implement a system that when you queue you must select one of your SPECS not Healer or Dps. Once you enter the BG you are switched to that spec you selected and cannot change it.
Problem fucking solved.
Bots issue you say? Implement a Captcha system like when you sign up for shit on the internet. You cant solve the Captcha you dont play the BG
Problem Fucking solved
I question Blizzard intelligence sometimes
But unfortunately, money > integrity.
