Can the rate at which huttball modes pop be reduced? It's driving me insane.
In one hour of play, I've had 4 in a row.

edit ...5
2nd edit......would of been 6 but i left the match.
Not Null

Yep, as I reported after doing my own testing months ago, combined Hutt Ball type maps dominate the pop with over 40% of your match pops.

Tis needs to be fixed.

The only solution I’ve been able to come up with is group all Hutt Ball maps as one type because there are 3/9 Hutt Ball maps
The way it would work is the queue pops “Hutt Ball” and then rolls the dice again to decide which Hutt Ball map to give you.
This reduces Hutt Ball back to a 1/7 chance and not a 3/9 chance.

No.

I enjoy huttball, its a unique game mode compared to other objective-based pvp I've done in other games, including SWG. Compared to arenas, quite frankly, if it came down to huttball or arenas, I'd gladly take huttball all the time if it meant I'd never have to do an arena again. In fact, I think they've already lowered the chance once when they released Vandin. (EDIT: obviously after the initial weeks of it being favored)

But the point is that everyone has maps/modes they love, like, are neutral about, dislike, hate, and everything in between. My dislike of arenas is no more of a justification or reason to delete them from the unranked pool than someone else's dislike of huttball, or any other map/mode.

That's exactly how I feel about 4 vs 4/ arenas, I'd [vastly] rather always do 4 vs 4. The longer the warzones are drawn out, the more cr@p that tends to be played out with it, with the Napeleons Jrs - it's more of a nuisance, and 4 vs 4 feels a lot more focused.) Also, it's easier for smaller guilds to get a group of 4 for ranked, rather than 8 (as ranked is pretty underutilized.)

But you have to admit that HB is over represented as far as maps go. 3 out of 9 are Hutt Ball, which is a third of all maps.
While you might love HB, the same as I used to, many, many players hate it or are starting to hate it because it pops more than 33% of the time, it’s more like 40% of the time.
The other problem is Hutt Ball has the worst dysnc in the game, which can make it unplayable at times and is only getting worse when they add any new content into the game. It doesn’t even need to be related to pvp.
And let’s not forget the multitude of bugs that keep creeping into the maps, with Vandin and Quesh being the worst.
So when people constantly get broken HB maps with too much dysnc, they get angry and leave or they just don’t try to play the match properly
All of those reasons are why Hutt Ball needs to have the percent of pops reduced so it’s once again 1/7 pops and not 3/9 pops.

I have to agree with the other posters, they're right, huttball pops way to much and its pop rate really needs to be reduced.

Huttball and arenas have the fastest completion times as it is on a fast timer compared to other WZ. Some players including myself just want to queue and get the daily/weekly done quickly and efficiently for conquest etc. Fastest matches also = faster rewards earned end of match which is a good thing.

DEFINITELY.

And remove Quesh completely if possible, it is completely useless.
