The Question is simple. Is Illum 2.0 aka the revamp still slated for January Release? Gabe mentioned January release. This game is in need of some kind of Outdoor PvP incentive.

PvP haven't gotten a lot of love lately, and my second question is, Rated PvP Season 1, will that include Solo QUE aswell? I find it very hard to get 8 people on and when I do, the ques are farely long.

Well at first I thought that was their intent but upon closer look I think its going to be more of an special event and nothing permanent...should still be fun though.

The whole point of Ranked is to get 8 people who are the competitive and coordinating together. If you had a ranked solo queue, you would get smashed by a guild of 8.
Then there would be more QQ threads than there already are on the forums.

If you want solo vs solo ranked... it is called queuing up for a warzone solo, with a stat count (which they probably won't implement)...
Then there would be more QQ threads than there already are on the forums.

The were gonna implement solo que Ranked, but pulled it because they dident have enough testing on it. Solo que is even mentioned in the PvP menu ingame, that Season 1 will bring it. Solo que'ed will not meet 8 premade. Think of it like how League of Legends does it. There is 5v5 Ranked and Duo/Solo que Ranked. The same idea would work in SWTOR if they only could get enough players.

They should have seperate rating for Solo que and Premade que. Then I think people would do solo when they are bored or alone, and Premade when their players are there.

Do you think this is unreasonable? I think this would be a great idea to help the PvP in this game.

BioWare, at the Fansite summit you talked about Online PvP Tournaments, is that comming or is that scrapped? GW2 has tournament and something like that would be a great addition to the PvP in this game.

Gabe mentioned the possibility of Ilum 2.0 in January, but he was also quick to back off of that being a definite date for anything, so I wouldn't hold your breath.

Word is that the next 1.6 update is going to be a PvP update, with the new Ancient Hypergates WZ and the launch of Rated Season One. But there is no official word on this. I have also seen no mention of a solo queue for any upcoming updates.

Ancient Hypergates is confirmed to come in 1.5 - Because they said it will come out this year, and with their 6 week release plan, there is only 1.5left this year.

Solo que is mentioned INGAME to come in Season 1, lets just see what they do with that. The League of Legends way of queing is very good. Maybe something they should look into.

i would guess it will be the ancient hypergates wz then...since the general idea was new stuff every 6 weeks and then new wz didn't make it to 1.5 this month.

Solo queue was mentioned ingame, however bioware removed any reference of it being added for S1 quite some time ago. So we'll have to see.
