With the weekly reset, player groups that have more than 5 players will now be able to queue for battlegrounds. The matchmaking system will try to match similar sized groups together, so raid groups will primarily be facing other raid groups. However if you are queueing alone or as a small group, you might still end up in a game with a raid group.
It is not yet clear how this will impact matchmaking queues or the quality of games. While this will enable you to play with more of your friends or guildies at once, queueing alone might become a more frustrating experience if the opponents are well organized.
With the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region, all “pre-made” groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds.
After this hotfix, grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes and 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.
Please note: Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.
