<p>There are many games where we will start with half a team, Or ill log in and there will be 3 seconds left and I have to summon my pet/buff and by the time im ready we are allready 30seconds into the game.</p>

<p>Agree, alittle more time at the begining is probably a good idea. It doesn't seem to wait until all chars are sync'd into the server to start.</p>

<p>Agreed as well.  We still had some people zoning when the match started.</p>

I was regulary zoning in with at least 50-200 pts laready scored by one team or the other. A little more time to start would be appreciated

<p>make queued group and self queue go to different instance. let premade group vs premade group and pug vs pug.</p><p>dont let any group go in without at least 1 healer.</p>

<p>A little more time before start would be good. Also see the thread on the need to rearrange groups. Premades need to fix their groups with people still zoning in, and pick up teams need a little time to get organized. On top of that, playing a healer class, I need to recast my buffs and I can barely get them all fired off even -if- I am the first to zone in.</p>

<p>Agreed with OP!</p><p>Even if I get in super early, I have a pet and group buffs, and I have to see who is all in my group to determine who to put TC and IA on ect.  But the grp is usually only 3 people when the timer goes live <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Thanks for the feedback.  I think another 30 seconds in pre-game could help a lot.  If you take the full 60 seconds to accept the match request, you might end up zoning in a little late.</p><p>If you've noticed that you're zoning in really late for a match, this is because you got backfilled into a slot that opened up.  Even though you were there for the entire game, you'll still be eligible for the reward tokens at the end. </p><p>I'll discuss the pre-game time with the team and see if we can get a concensus on adding more time.</p>

<p>Nice Rothgar, Yea I usually accept the invite within the first 5 seconds, but by the time we get logged out,a nd then logged back into another server and all that theres usually about 15-20 seconds left <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Not to mention if it is your first time in one you have to stop and panic because your UI is all over the place and your key bindings are gone <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>PLUS summoners come in without pets. may as well just grant the other team a free kill for ever conji and necro.</p>

<p>Summoners only come in without a pet in the 80-89 BGs if they are over lvl 80 because you mentor to 80. The lvl 90 BGs are fine.</p>

<p>I was just specifying as to why its happening, thats all. Having to recast your pet at the start of a fight shouldn't stop you from playing BGs. On live, if you have the Dimentional Storage AA just use that to save your pet before you go in and when you get into BGs toggle it off. That should work until they fix/change the pet issue.</p>

<p>added 30s to the setup time of all BGs, should show up in a hotfix soon =)</p>

<p>You could also make all permanent pets and buffs insta-cast in the setup phase, or maybe even in BG as a whole.  I don't see what the harm is in doing that.  Would love to be able to get going with my team when they spawn instead of casting pet (if it also died) and re-buffing it (whether it died or not).</p>

Not a major, but was kinda ticked that I was ported in to begin with to a BG that was already running, and also finished.</p>
