As most of you know, one of the biggest issues with arenas today is the lack of players. I'm sure most of you have been in a situation where you've felt that it was impossible to find anyone to play with. The fact is, unless you're a well established player or a "e-celebrity," finding people to play with on a consistent basis, who are around your skill level, is just about impossible.

There are ways that this issue can be tackled. I think Blizzard has taken an amazing first step in allowing people to play with other players who are off realm. This, unfortunately, isn't enough. My proposed idea is to add an in-game version of the third party addon known as OQueue. The addon allows you to easily find groups and due to it's incredible success, I recommend it be implemented in game.

The main issues with OQueue at the moment is that it's barely used outside of "yolo" groups or low mmr arenas/rbgs. I believe implementing it into the game's interface directly would increase the pool of players using the system increasing the amount of higher skilled player's participation.

Of course this wouldn't solve the issue of the difficulty of finding partners, which increases every year with the bleeding of subs. It would, though, create another outlet for players looking for equally skilled players to find partners.
