Why does the healer in our pre-made group get moved in random epic trials?

In our guild we will make a 5 person party: 3 dps, a healer, and a tank. We then queue for the Random Epic Trial. The majority of the time, our healer will be moved from our party and placed in the other 5-man party. Our party gets the other party's healer. Why does this happen? Why does the healer get moved from our party?

    Simple. It's a bug. It will never get fixed because it isn't game changing or game breaking.

    I want to thank you @lordtweety#3604 . If not for your response, we would have been left to wonder what the issue was for days weeks months years, like we do for every other bug in the game.

    Yeah, it wasn't always that way. I can't remember exactly when it started but it's been a while. But like other bugs in game, unless they are game breaking, dev's just don't have the manpower to hunt down what is causing them.

    Of course if the bug affects income/zen it jumps the priority list but those aren't that common.

    A long time ago, the queue just threw the parties in trials together however they worked out. Then there was a pstch note daying it would work to sort the healers and tanks into each party. This led to the behavior described above as well as the queue rearranging people even in Private Queues, which caused a lot of annoyance last year when people wanted specific player defined roles in each group for Cradle runs.

    A useful change went farther than it should have and was simply never addressed again by the devs. With groups made entirely by the queue, it was needed to have at least healers spread out, and frequently tanks as well. Fixing the lack of that was a good change, but then nothing was ever done to tweak the system and smooth out the rough patches.
