Ok and Voidstar doesnt have any choke points where players zerg it up. Voidstar is the worst map out there. The only people that like it are usually pyro powertechs or anything with AE damage. They should at least add the option to unque for Voidstar... since it sucks.

I hate voidstar as well, and given the choice would never que it, not in normal not in ranked. The reasons for this is that little divider Bioware added to the first two doors has done nothing to save a majority of the matches I play in Ranked being 0-0 and random victory being assigened, that is not a good setup for "Competitive Gameplay". The WZ either needs to be completely rebooted again, like it was back in beta or be removed from Ranked WZs.

As long as you have, healers who know to, let you die but one by one, not in big groups and 2 or 3 ranged AOE classes, Voidstar will not progress beyond the first door, its long dull and boring and the majority of the map isn't even seen in ranked making it a complete waste to even be there in the first place. At most if the 0-0 is broken they'll either do the slow and charge approuch which, if you have the time left (which you shouldn't vs and good team) you can maybe get to the shields before the final room.

The issue I have with voidstar is the entire design is based around dragging out the WZ as long as possible so you can win, it makes matches very long and dull, and getting two in a row makes my enitre ranked team smash their heads on their computer desks. Now if the full length was played out but beyond the first room I doubt it'd be so boring, if they split the first two doors further way from spawn like on the second door (after the bridges) then the map would progress more and be more enjoyable. To be honest the bridge to second doors part of voidstar is great and where most of the fun in the WZ is found, but people need to get to that area more often instead of being shut down at the first door. I'd like to see it rebooted where it isn't possible to actually stop a team getting to the datacore or at the very least very difficult to do, so that way its really which team does it faster/can delay the other team the longest, and stop the long drawn out battles at the first door.

Agreed. It could be improved with some simple changes though. Refer to this whole thread for some:

You need to give us the option to choose which maps to queue for.

<.< I assume he didn't mean "Until I rub the first few layers of skin off", because otherwise it's basically the same as shaving down there

Voidstar is a fantastic map. The pillars allow for some great positioning (only for ranged, though )if you're playing ranged) and screwing around . I like the frequent races to the healing buff.

What I really like the most is that there is always action in voidstar, unless you're that guy defending the unattacked door and they never go for it, but they will usually switch doors at some point. Much better than in CW or Novare where you know you're behind and your team fails to capture a 2nd point and you probably could go afk for 10 mins, because the other team will probably not want to attack your point.

CW is the worst offender there. You're far away from action and the only way you'll ever get any is if your team is in the lead. Unlike in Voidstar, you'll get some action defending if the enemy plants.

Finally, I used to love huttball, but it blatantly favors some classes. I mean, wth do you do in this map as a scrapper? You try to jump their ranged dps? If the enemy ball carrier is a leaper, you probably won't stick long on him. The only time I'm really happy to play HB is when I'm on my sniper. It's really fun to deal death from above to some poor souls and I feel like it's one of the best class to defend. Don't give me the ball, though. I'm as dead as a dodo with it!

Anyways, all classes can be good in VS and there's a lot of action. <3 it

P.S. Voidstar doesn't like you either.
