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.

Yeah, why not.. as like you say, randoms rarely go for the ball or try to score so might as well remove the thing and make it all about kills since that's what it most times ends up to be about anyways.

I'd be perfectly fine playing the current maps until the EoL of SWTOR if we were given the choice of excluding maps and gametypes we detest. I detest throwing a stupid ball around like a cheap knockoff of Blitzball from Final Fantasy.

Been playing Huttball since beta and players by in large aren't getting better grasping the whole "ballgame" concept lol.

Personally I thought it was a dumb idea to begin with and a waste of an awesome map, if anything remove the ball and put in more deathtraps.

It just doesn't fit with the lore, Jedi and Sith would never play sporting events together lol, not sure even the pirate faction would, well, maybe for enough credits I suppose.

And the Hutts would want to see blood, death and gore, not a bunch of fools throwing a ball around, seriously.

Even the die hard Huttball lovers can't deny this fact.

I wish i could find the video of the team that dominated some huttball using nothing but controlling effects. It was a beautiful sight to behold and that is the aspect i like about huttball. Team coordination can overcome lack of DPS, or Heals or an overabundance of either on the opposing team.
