5 days ago, we reported that Blizzard was planning on allow people to queue as premade teams again, albeit with some crucial changes, such as 6+ player premades only being matched against other 6+ player premades. It’s still possible for solo players to run into premades consisting of 5 or fewer players, but it’ll be less likely than before.
Linxy just updated the hotfixes list, containing just that one change for TBC Classic servers, which went live with last night’s maintainance, making this change official.
Are you satisfied that you won’t be running into premades consisting of 6 or more players again, or is being matched against 5 players just as bad to you? Let us know what your experience is like following this change in the comments below.
Here is the hotfix that went live in Burning Crusade Classic with this week’s maintenance:

- All “pre-made” groups may now queue for Battlegrounds. Grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes.
- Developers’ note: With this change, the matchmaker will now match raid groups of 6 or more players against at least one group of 6 or more players. If the total number of players in your raid is smaller than the maximum size of the Battleground, the matchmaker will automatically fill your side with other groups or individuals. If there are no large pre-mades in the queue, party groups of 5 or fewer players will be placed against other parties of 5 or fewer players. Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.
