Please ask if they will consider removing 8v8 from the standard hot join games, making them all 5v5.

They could then of course make custom maps available for more than 5v5. It just really sucks playing a completely different game in hotjoin because you're either dealing with roaming zergs (8v8), or empty maps (because everyone defaults to 8v8) where people yell at you for interrupting their duels.

I would like to hear if and how are they going to redesign some skills. Time warp for instance... in team fights it's like one skill to win them all. To grant quickness to everyone, even professions that normaly don't have access to it, it's a little broken if you ask me. Yes I know every class can get it from sigil but for that to trigger they must invest heavily into precision. It just doesn't seem right to be able to go like full tank and then go frenzy style in bubble with no downside effect. I mean every class than can get quickness from utility has some sort of downside effect.

I don't know if you are still taking questions but ...
Please ask why they are trying so hard to bore the tPVP community to death by changing the system once a week. Why isn't random map implemented? It's very tiresome to play the same map everyday for a week!

Also, we need some clarifications on the new update :
"It’s time to prove your skill! In this new type of competitive PvP, two teams of equal average rating are pitted against each other in a quick, intense match. The ratings for every member of each team is then adjusted after the match."
This refers only to matchmaking with a hidden rating, right ? No ladder, no real ratings.

I'd like to ninja this thread just a moment to say that we understand that people want to see something on WvW and PvE and that we're looking for someone with the experience and drive to host something like that for us. If that's something that you're interested in, please send me a PM and we'll talk.
