on the other hand, when I run around on a PT, mara or jugg, I feel as though no matter how bad my team is, I can still contribute in a meaningful way.

for example, it doesn't matter how crap my team is, I'll firepull a carrier at least once every match, usually many more times. as a jugg I can just about make it from spawn to goal all on my own (leap > push > leap...possibly an intercede thrown in). and as a mara, every time we get the ball I feel fulfilled just popping super predation. I don't normally play other ACs, so I dunno what it's like on scoundrel or sorc or sin, but I feel comparatively helpless on the merc and imagine a similar degree of frustration on a sniper.

Every time a powertech or operative has the ball, it's pretty much game over unless the FULL team is able to head them off. That's not if they glitch when they roll and you can't even figure where they are. And all you see is them falling through the ramp to the bottom so you jump down and nope they are still up top. Can't cc or knock them back when they are like this either.

Warzone is just a joke. Queshball isn't any better with people passing up to ledge. And range reign supreme on that map while melee crawl around on the bottom after being knocked off and picked off by range up top. Just a terribly designed map.

Come on mate, at least wait a couple of posts before contradicting yourself

We had a huttball the other day....once either team got the ball there was almost nothing anyone could. We lost 6-4 which might sound like an even match, but it was basically a content of who would grab the ball first. Pointless when no one can kill anyone or even slow them down.

Honestly? This just sounds like the OP is butthurt from being on the losing end of too many 6-0's....

Huttball: (from the classes I play)
Scoundrel: decent at carrying because of scamper, self heals, evasion, etc. - can support the carrier otherwise. Plus, in the standard Huttball map, you can stealth to the endzone, and your ball carrier can run straight thru the middle and pass up to you as you unstealth... pretty much an instant score.

Shadow: 12s of "can't touch me" - nuff said. - plus, same stealth tactic as above.

Jugg & Vanguard: really no explanation needed here, it's obvious.


I know snipers that sit and just make people's life hell from range when they get the ball.... Most classes IF YOU KNOW HOW TO PLAY YOUR CLASS can make worthwhile contributions to Huttball/Queshball.... It's when people who don't know how to play their class, try to do things their class isn't good at, that they start to think that [insert this warzone name here] sucks.

This is pretty much it. A lot of times, if Im playing a class I have not used a lot, I kind of don't want Hutt Ball just because I don't know what to do but once I figure it out, I love it.
