    What About 2v2?

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could jump into some 2v2 arenas??

    Can't people 2v2 in custom matches or is it 4 minimum?


    For dueling that would be cool. For anything competitive with rewards Locke do behind it, probably not because games would be dominated by Healer + Healer or Healer + Tank teams which would not be fun at all and would take forever.

    Nooooooo. Lord no. Healing is far too powerful, and CC is nonexistent from classes that would need it to do well in a 2v2 situation aka every melee.

    Also to add to this, I don't think any job currently has the capability to solo kill through healing.

    Just to add to Cynric's observation, I believe a complete rework of all the classes would be required for 2v2 to become a viable alternative. Each melee would need to be given certain forms of CC so they can help contain healers. Healers would need to be given cooldowns longer than 20-40 seconds, or reduce the power of the small cooldowns and give them major cooldowns to pop during pressure.

    There's just tons of things that would need to be done to the entire system. 4v4 still needs a lot of work, imo. A lot. So let's create a good foundation of competitive PvP in 4v4, and then maybe we can talk to about 2v2.

    4v4 Feast Unranked would be nice. To be honest, I miss Wolves Den as it was quite fun & not as 'intense' as Feast can get.

    4v4 Unranked - in the form of Cross Server Custom matches - is slated for 4.1, thankfully.

    Between the quick chat spam, the botting, the wintrading (the SAME PEOPLE WINTRADING after 5 seasons), match throwing, and my own personal lack of time to make any real progress, I'm just done with ranked Feast. The Feast itself can be fun, but as things are now, Ranked Feast stopped being fun like 2 seasons ago.

    I would LOVE to have the Feast be like arena from WoW rather than the medal system. It's unlikely it would work in the current form of PvP due to PvPs bursty nature, but the medal system is flawed. I lost a match last night because we were winning so hard everyone on my team had medal stacks, tank died in the last 45 seconds, enemy team ran back to their spawn and turtled. Felt good to be at a disadvantage simply because my team was outperforming the other.

    Medal system needs revisions or they need to discuss new ways to do the Feast. Something needs to be done.

    If your team was so ahead how did one tank death mean loss to turtling??
