I hate WZs.

Aside from random encounters on Ilum and other worlds if your're on a PVP server, there is no open world pvp.

Has it even been discussed? Could the servers handle it?

Use the civil war bases in SWG as an example. . . can't we add a controllable base on Ilum that we could fight over?

Perhaps this has been discussed before but I've been out of the loop and couldnt find a recent thread...

Topic #2: World PvP What happened to making Ilum better? What is going on with Open World PvP? Answer: We have not forgotten Ilum! I think you will see (fairly soon) the answer to this question in the game itself - something big is coming to the Western Ice Shelf, but its quite a departure from what was there before. As for pure Open World PvPwell, thats a more difficult proposition. We are dedicated to providing excellent PvP experiences to our players, but we intend to focus our energy on PvP Seasons and new Warzones. We will be experimenting with a different approach to Open World PvP, something that encourages organic PvP in contested areas in a new and interesting way, but do not look for massive new Open World PvP this year (outside of what I mentioned above). It is still on our design wall, but is taking a back seat to other forms of PvP.

That'a it for now I think..
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Expectations lead to suffering

There was some open world PvP yesterday on PoT5. Granted; there was no motivating factor other than the Pubs invading Sith territory where Black Hole dailies are run, but kudos to them for doing it. It was fun, and there were a lot of people, but it was clearly choppy. I'm not sure if it would be better in an area better set up for PvP, but I hope so.
