Not true! In beta, we had 12v12 (or possibly 16v16) CW's all the time. They ran fine imo and were a blast! There's no reason we couldn't do larger WZ's. AH, CW and NC are all large enough for 12/16v12/16.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

Just imagine a huttball map with double the people, double the traps, and double the fun. Not every pvp map needs to be 12 v 12 or 16 v 16, but man... one giant huttball would be a huge start.

Meaning, will there be 1 Q as always or will there Q for Objective based Warzone, and Q for Deathmatch Warzone?
I will cover this in my blog post. Sorry for the tease but it is an in-depth explanation and best to keep the answer, hows, wheres and whys in one place. Hope you understand!

I could see that happening, but also imagine, in a 12v12, needing to keep 2-3 defending while a massive brawl, 9v9 happens at mid (CW, NC or HG). Huttball would/could be insane with the same size map. Larger teams could allow for some wicked ambushes, say 6-8 stealthies.

The only thing I would say is this...I hope, pray that no class balance will result from arena play.

If imbalance is discovered in arena play it should remain unbalanced IMO.
