You're basically describing a premade duo running through PUGs that are staring at the wall while drooling... they're grabbing their ankles and waiting in line to die.

How about if you're bringing 2-3 guys - then they bring 2-3 guys as well. It's not a 2-3 v 1, it's a 2-3 v 2-3...?
No what he's describing is an organized premade vs. premade fight were team leaders are calling targets for the damage dealers to focus on due to changing circumstances in a given fight.

I don't think of the game just in terms of escorts and healer, those are just two facets of a complete team and only a rookie premade would bring just straight damage and straight healers

To be more specifics, when create a premade team design, I not only thing of the overall goal and functional methodology of the team, but in terms of what kind of roles would be needed to meet said methodology. Personally I divide it up into the following areas: Pure Damage, supplementary damage, healer, and group support; and apart from that there are the purpose builds but that's another matter.

Anyway that's me, and fly under the radar of most
