I love it but would like it more in an organized group. I lose and still like it. Ok, some people never learn and others will be bad forever. It is still early so some will get better slowly. On the other hand, if you are on a server where serious pvpr's are on opposite faction like mine, buy some alcohol and drink it during your game. It helps ease the pain. We win one of three maybe. Sometimes much worse.

To be honest, I have yet to actually get a pass off with the stupid amount of stuns in this game.

I've only tried like twice though, now I just sort of avoid taking the ball and DPS/peel **** >.>

Either way, I wouldn't mind this zergfest of a warzone if I didn't end up playing it every game.

Think carefully.

It's awesome, just takes teamwork, communication, and commonn sense - eg if your getting knocked off edges and into things don't fight in silly places, or focus fire the healers/ranged. Get yourself into a smart position to receive the ball and/or pass. It's not rocket science really, maybe you are not as good as you think? Because knock back won't win u games if u can't work as a team.

I relish the chance to play Huttball. Most of the time I'm pushed into Alderann or Voidstar so Empire kiddos can have some variety.

So lame.

Team work in pugs only goes so far. You are forced to move across narrow areas were you get knocked backed or yanked or stunned into oblivion. It always pops. I do fine when I play relative to the people Im playing with. I just hate the warzone with a burning passion. It has taken all the joy of the warzones out of me.

Just because I come here to vent my frustration and disgust over a warzone does not automatically mean someone "sucks" at it. So before being an ****** think about that.

There are many buggy mechanics inside the warzone that will cause people to become stuck or dropped from the warzone.

If you enjoy it fine say you enjoy it tell me why. Im all for hearing why people enjoy it. Dont attack my lack of enjoyment in something you enjoy tho.

Yeah, but there's a big difference though: if you're ranged and knock a melee off, you can then keep firing at him. If you're melee and knock a ranged off, you either have to then do something else, or jump down after him which kind of defeats the purpose.

Ranged classes have a massive advantage in Huttball. As soon as you add overhead platforms that take a while to reach - and are often also defended by fire pits, while being in range of the players in the middle (like fish in a barrel) then you're grossly skewing the advantage to ranged. That's obviously the reason there are no BGs with that type of layout in WoW (not that I'm saying WoW has better PVP, but they've had 7 years to tune it.)

Great. Now WoW comes into the conversation. Some of the melee classes can get up to 3 charges/leaps in THIS game, you know that game's forums your on. That combined with force choke and force push while wearing heavy armor makes me not even care about any ranged character.

I have no problem with a ranged class sitting on the 3rd tier shooting me. He isn't doing anything good for his team and he probably won't be able to kill me before I force charge back into his grill or get out of range.

Ranged classes do not have any significant advantage in Hutt Ball. Learn to play your class.

Huttball needs:

1] Commendations/medals for scoring and for being w/in a certain distance of the ball. Screw people who are off in the corner killing each other.

2] At least two brackets - maybe 10-30 and 31-50
I don't always use lightsabers, but when I do, I prefer Dos Blades ...
