Hey, since weekends pvp is dead most of the times, I thought that implementing given pod as in nctw might be a good idea. Example of sundays having to pod 5 times a day, 3 tws, 1 gvg (usually 1 round is vs alt guild so no pod needed) and 1 ga makes people just skip tws frankly. Me personally I skip them a lot of times even tho I'd enjoy them cos I spend more time podding than playing the game otherwise. If you are pvp exclusive you can save buffs by logging off but feels not a smart move since you are basically encouraging players to log off the game and not pve either.
If it was given as in nctw where you literally just have to click join that might help to give life to weekends tws instead of having to pm people if they are gonna assist or not.
