The factions I see mostly played in the lobby is ST/IS/KF/SP. So you found something strong and are sticking with it. Is your personal rank that important to you? Do you have to be limited to enjoy this game? Do you have to win every game to enjoy this game? You're the reason why this game isn't doing so well. When one only plays the strongest BG's it makes it harder for new players to come in and enjoy playing. You can blame it on DoG all you want but you know what you're doing. You've got to win. You've got to be limited. It doesn't have to be this way. WE can have fun again. Play other BG's! It's getting sooooooo boring playing against (not to limited to just these BG's) voils and dwarves. Congrats they have surge 2 you win.... If we took a sociological approach to this game I think we would benefit greatly if we totally removed rankings.
