they should add additional 'games' where you can play your own faction, that way you wont be forced to keep playing the same WZ 'huttball' when your faction outnumbers the opposition

maybe a capture the flag game (I know it's been done to death but at least they can get it right)

Ok my 2 cents here. First, anyone that bothered to take the time and listen to what the devs have been saying would know that there is another Warzone match on the way.. and very soon. They have also commented on the fact that they are planning to allow the selection of warzones sometime in the future.

However the last part, in my opinion, will hurt warzones. I think the randomness to the warzones adds flavor. You don't get a bunch of pre-made teams trying to dominate one particular battleground. I'm not a huge fan of huttball, but it is a great and refreshing difference to the capture the flag and tower defense that damn near most all MMOs have had. At least give them credit for trying something new.

I dont mind huttball, but here is a thought, reputation for warzones, you know sort of like wow, make it so that grinding wz's gives something else then the same commedations!

I would love a mini hutt pet to slug around behind me

i would give them credit if they had put the effort into warzones, there should be a dozen maps and a dozen gamemodes atleast. The current state of warzone is dire.

Not that it really matters, as the crappy pvp mechanics will likely spoil any warzones map/mode.

I really like hutball. A lot of times all I get at night are civil war and voidstar. And I'm imperial.

Perfectly viable for a Hutt (in fact I think I actually saw a couple playing during the Superbowl) and they can just bring on what I believe they call a 'special team' for the few predetermined kicking parts.
Couple angry Euros on tonight eh?

Anyways, hopefully if they do add the ability to select a warzone they add a bonus to random too, because however it rolls it would suck to have your favorite warzone be a ghost town just because people can't grasp teamwork. Or how to use their hands

I fully agree with the OP.

Huttball is heavily wieghted against certain classes and is a fight club often with a mess of unbalanced teams resulting in people just using knockbacks all the time.

At least give it as a special option to check/uncheck while signing up for warzones. I just dont want to be there. Landing on that area kills a sith in me. When there will be really little of sith in me left i will have no need of playing this game anymore.
