Ancient hypergate will probably be in 1.6 and I imagine that's when season 1 will begin for ranked, as for Ilum they said in an interview that they will be revamping it sometime in January to make open world PvP viable again.
well that's a recipe for disaster!
- every patch comes with an obligatory "they broke vstar again!"
- aaaaand, every new WZ/OPS comes with some sort of glitch
perhaps they should just do one or the other with new WZ and s1 - one at a time that is.
