  • improving WZ matchmaking so there are fewer ROFLSTOMPS and more reasonably competitive matches
  • rolling out RWZ season 1
  • allowing cross server PvP. (This is not identical to cross server queuing which we have been told is not coming)
  • 8v8 challenge matches (no rewards but you can pick your opponent. E.g. to play an epeen match or to practice)

When was the last time anything was done for rateds? Preseason a year ago. We have gotten new WZs since then and lots of other changes and nothing for rateds. What I fear is that if we apply your logic, Rated PvP will never get improvements because the majority constiutency always wants something more.

NOTE: The red items above are not specific to rated, they are quality issues that affect both rated and non-rated.

If I was never put in a huttball match ever again I'd be thrilled, in fact I often log out after huttball. I know a fair amount of people that could do without it as well. They can add all the silly ball maps they want to in the future as long as I'm allowed to que for specific warzones

Here's a novel idea: release a map editor and let the community do your job for you. I'm sure 1 or 2 of us knows our way around a computer and might have the skills to design a Huttball arena.

Yes please! Huttball is the only map where nobody gets penalized because they don't have someone sitting out on the action watching an inactive node. Voidstar is close since the nodes are so close together that it is rare for an attacking team to just ignore one of them, but there usually tends to be an active door and an inactive door, which means someone gets stuck sitting around when they obviously queued up for pvp to fight other players.

I'd also be interested in the huttball league idea. I would love queuing up for that!

My last four or so days of SWTOR gaming have had very few Huttball WZs! I have been sorely disappointed.

The few that I've played have been worth the cost of my subscription.

If you kept the same rules and same old huttball gametype, but just gave us a whole new arena (indoor, outdoor. in space, underground. etc...) to play in with all new obsticles to the course it would be very good for the game, and make all pvpers happy: Thank you- Have A Nice Day

1. it would be better with cross server queing.
2. they dont know how to add cross server ques.
3. see # 2.

New hutt ball match arena idea 1:

Corellia themed, same map style. Instead of fire traps, seismic charges that blast players in different directions. Plus a pulse cannon that one shots random player every 30 - 40 seconds, hutt ball shields player from cannons targeting system so ball carrier is immune! Acid trap has Fire prox charges, and like all fire traps cast a periodic fire damage on you, as well as cast slow.

Idea 2:

Manaan (A planet i would like SWTOR to bring back into the mix) Themed, same map style again. Fire traps, instead random open and close water tanks, that traps you in, potentially drowning you unless you have full health, then drops you into the pit. Acid trap becomes water with electric current flowing through it that sends out random electric charges that stuns for 8 seconds.The Progenitor makes a return, and randomly grabs player and brings them back to their own end zone every 30 - 40 seconds and stuns them for 8 seconds(stun starts from the second she grabs the player). Hutt ball has the ability to ward her off, so ball carrier in immune.
