Well the obvious problem as I see it with Huttball is over half the players already treat it as a deathmatch anyway, so in large part pugs are a nightmare to play Huttball in, it requires coordination of your team mates, more so than the other WZs by far.
Even the players that love Huttball have to concede that point. And you won't change the player base, most pugs will treat it as a deathmatch, that's just a fact, so my point was why not just make it into a deathmatch since it would tie into the SW lore better anyway.
And again, that's precisely what makes that warzone annoying. It's Huttball, a ballgame, a virtual sport, it was never meant to be a deathmatch, and shouldn't be changed just because the majority of players can't grasp that fact. Make a deathmatch to satisfy all those people who only care about kills and hate objectives, but don't change any of the ones we have now to be like that just because a bunch of people jump into them with that mentality.
