10 Ideas to Spice up Huttball (Because I'm tired of complaining about it)

(In no particular order)

1. Hot potato huttball. If you hold on to the ball for more than 10 seconds, you
die! That will teach people how to pass.

2. Completely random flame timers. Both in duration, and activation.

3. Instead of the fire vents, make them all air vents. Sometimes you would get
lucky and be placed in a great spot, and others, not so much.

4. Everyone starts with a speed powerup that continues through the match.

5. Everyone starts with a damage powerup that continues through the match.

6. Each point scored by either team knocks a minute off the clock. This effect wont
happen past the 2:00 mark.

7. Fake out ball. Each player, has a 1 time use ability (per match), that generates
an identical ball. You cannot pass this ball. Lasts 10 seconds. Great for confusing
the opponents. You cannot score with this ball.

8. Instead of the air vents, put turrets that you could man there (like Collocoid).
BOOM. You can picture the rest.

9. The leader of each team is the only person who can carry the ball.

10. Thermal Huttball. Everyone gets the ability to detonate the huttball if their
life goes below 5%. Big damage, small radius. The ball resets afterwards.

(Side note: The hot potato hutball is probably my favorite idea)


Try not to say, "just get rid of huttball". We aren't that lucky.

Props for creativity. The Hot Potato thing actually sounds decent, people who dont ever pass make things unnecessarily hard in what is supposed to be a team game.

A few new maps would be welcomed.

I like the thermal detonator option when it all gets a bit much.

But, yes, a few new arenas would be grand!

I've fantasised about an arena with wild beasts in the corners (a la Gladiator... Stray to close to, say, Nexu and Acklays tethered by chains, and you suddenly find yourself in a world of pain!

Imagine the commentary! Especially if it came from one of the two-headed chaps who did the pod racing!

Hm. Pod racing and swoop bike PvP, anyone?
I'm just not a lightsaber kind of person.

A gladiator style arena could be interesting. 8 vs 8 vs 8 Rancors
