Pre-Made Teams: Collective Pawning in Rated Battlegrounds


In the new Cataclysm expansion of World of Warcraft, there's a clear mandate: Group up or be decimated in the new rated battlegrounds.
Not that random PuGs will be doomed to low ratings in the competitive versions of Arathi Basin or Warsong Gulch. It's just that pre-made teams will be the dominant status quo, and deservingly so.

The Advantage of Pre-Mades
Pre-made teams have a level of coordination that a ragtag group of cross-server queuers can hardly match. Members of pre-made teams know each other's play styles from fighting together in the trenches and can use this knowledge to focus fire or peel targets depending on the skirmish at hand.

Those skills are valuable for dispatching opposing threats and completing objectives such as defending nodes and capturing flags. Plus pre-mades know how to protect their pocket healers who, in turn, keep the whole team alive.

So if you're serious about dominating rated battlegrounds plus reaping mounds of Arena points and WoW Gold along the way, then there's little choice but to form your own pre-made team. Here's how to go about it:

Make a Dedicated Guild
Browse down those contacts and recruit enough people to start a rated battlegrounds pre-made guild. The point of this is to create a pool of team mates who can fill the ranks when needed.

Pre-made guilds will also have access to better organization tools such as guild banks for storing a collective WoW Gold account for gear upgrades and repairs; dedicated chat channels to plot strategies; and a formal system of officership for assigning tasks and responsibilities.

It's also advisable to set up a dedicated Ventrilo server or any other voice communication program. Imagine being ambushed by a rogue and scrambling to type out "Help!" while getting stun-locked to death. A voice chat system makes incoming calls instantaneous, and allows for the coordination of target switching and cooldowns in more complex fights.

Plus, pre-made guilds can work on the new guild achievements which reward successful team effort on rated battlegrounds with special titles and rewards.

But if you're already part of a guild and don't want to join a new one, there's no stopping you from informally creating a pre-made team inside that guild. As always, be transparent about it so you don't come off as building a divisive clique.

Form Team Comps
Once the pre-made guild has a healthy number of members, then one of the first things to do is to sort out the team comps.

Like arena teams, rated battleground teams will have to be composed of DPS and healers. Each battleground has a different set of objectives for winning so the team comps will also have to adjust accordingly.
A solid starting strategy is to plan a team comp around the featured weekly battleground, which Blizzard picks at random and yields better bonus rewards than the non-featured ones. In Cataclysm, there will be eight possible battlegrounds, including the new 10-man Twin Peaks and 10-man Battle for Gilneas so keep them all in mind when planning.

Some pre-made guilds are even incorporating Arena strategy in their team comps, grouping members into Arena 5s, 3s or 2s. This works because the Arena comps have a proven synergy that makes them a cut above the rest. Use these Arena comps as a starting point but get creative as well like swapping a cleave comp Warrior for another Enhancement Shaman to see if it works better.

Queue Up and Take Notes
You've done the prep work, now it's on to battle! Schedule matches on the most active queuing times in your battlegroup to get faster log-ins and more varied opponents.

Pre-made guilds will be all the rage in Azeroth so scout out the possible competition in your battlegroup. Study the rival comps out there so you can devise counter-strategies. The more your team wins, the higher your rating climbs and the tougher the opponents will become. Detailed notes on "teams to beat" will help in future face-offs.

Observing opponents is just half of the job, you also have to keep tabs on what works and doesn't for your team. Be critical but respectful when advising a team member to re-spec his talents or gear. Chip in some WoW Gold when these changes will cost a lot because at the end of the day it's the team that benefits.

Remember that no pre-made team falls apart faster than those who turn against each other—just ask the PuGs where whiners cry: "Why do you all suck?"
