You got four WZ maps, all of which are several years of age. No matter how much you dislike Hutball or Arenas, they keep variety in queue. Even though you technically hate them Hutball games and Arena matches, they end up..contributing in keeping overall experience, parts you like included, as bit more..lively and exciting.

You being happy about this is 1:1 the reason why every video game dev ever has huge issues with play-testers and test groups and such. It is very hard to tell " what people want" from " what people THINK they want but really don't" and " what people think they want but actually ruins their fun in long enough timeline"



I fully realize above sounds arrogant and all but fffs. How can you not see this??? Prepare for some valuable self enlightenment in this somewhere between 4th and 8th civil war in a row, OP.

"yay few of our very, very few WZs are gojne high five!"
lol

Huttball has the cheesiest kill mechanics in the game. In the original there's almost nowhere to go where you can't be pulled, stunned and effectively executed by certain classes. Dumb.

That explains the endless run of Voidstar x8 in a row, Hypergat x9 in a row, Civil War, VoidstarHypergate circle.

Seriously Bioware, you really need to explain yet ANOTHER flawed design decision. Removal of Arenas is the best news from all of this.

I don't like huttball in general but, Huttball is undeniably a great map because it has constant use of the whole team.

Hey everyone, as many of you have guessed the change to the PTS Warzone rotation made it to Live. This is not intended and will be fixed soon. I apologize to everyone who was inconvenienced by this bug and to those that will be inconvenienced by the fix. Thank you!

In my opinion an occasional vintage huttball wouldn't bother me, the quesh HB could permanently be erased from existence and I would not miss it.

Arenas? Arenas are annoying when you are mismatched so terribly, whether it's skill or class selection in this regard (4 healers against 4 dps, really?!).

Arenas should be spared for ranked only. At least then you know what you are signing up for, and it's (slightly) better matched, at least concerning team compositions.

The one thing I have noticed is that warzones pop much faster WITHOUT Arenas in the Q.

Different players enjoy different game modes. More news at 11.

But honestly, queue times would be terrible pretty much everywhere but Harb if you could select maps. You play a map you don't enjoy so other players can enjoy it and someone else plays a map they don't enjoy so you can play one you enjoy. It's the circle of (MMO) life.
