You won't ever find a competitive ladder on TrueWoW. It's a casual place where the mediocre players, like myself, got a chance at doing well. In terms of balance, we have a mixed gear quality among the players (some with max ilvl, some around ilvl 264 and some below that item level), already ensuring unbalance (atleast considering it's harder to find a raid these days). Bringing all those into a 3v3 match will much more highlight the gear difference compared to if they did 5v5. You can't really use the high-level balance evaluation you got from your AT-experience, as while most teams have a battle plan with CC, gimping, etc. over on AT, here it's all about "Hey, lets kill the healer first" while throwing a stun or fear left and right.Boxis wrote:5v5 is the most inbalanced and stupid ladder in my opinion for competitive playing, that's why Blizzard focused on 3v3 which is the most balanced of all 3.
In my opinion, focus on creating a fun, rather than competitive, environment regardless of gear.
If it's supposed to be 3v3, you can replace the 3v3 panel. It's not like ranked 3v3 team matches are being played anyways.Boxis wrote:No need to make it so complicated that people will lose interest. Simple solo-queuing with replacing 5v5 panel with it should be enough for start. Then it can be tweaked (if someone actually has the possibility to script it) according to players feedback.
