Ever since you guys "fixed" Vandin pop rate, it seems like all I get is Huttball pops now and then sometimes Yavin. I refuse to play Vandin or Quesh in any capacity, and now I can't play OG Huttball because it shows up too much for my liking. Even Yavin is sometimes a leave. I barely get arenas (my personal favorite), Civil War (favorite 8v8), Hypergate and Voidstar. Can you please fix this?
Don't flatter yourself, EA/BW. I'm just here by the grace of a referral.

Well the problems is HuttBall style maps take up nearly a third of availabe WZs in the queue. So you should expect more HB style maps than any other.

They should change the queue for warzones (and also GSF) to first random the type of war, then random the specific warzone. Simple to add this, sad they haven't.

They should have just added years ago the ability to queue “type” of WZ and added incentives to play all (the same as WoW do or did, it’s been a while since I left)

With Wow, they have/had a system that rewarded you more for queuing random. If you got the random queue weekly done, you got a lot more rewards.
But they also gave you the ability to queue seperately for what every “type” of WZ you wanted (not always the exact map).
Then they added a map of the week daily and weekly. This would rotate every week and you could choose to play this map for good rewards (still not quiet as good as the random, but better than seperate queues)

This system worked really well because they had specific pvp gear for certain pvp brackets. That meant you would want to get as many rewards as possible to upgrade in brackets. The brackets were 10 levels at a time and no level sync. So you always wanted to be working for the best gear to even the battlefield if you could.

Once you had the gear or you only felt like playing a specific map, you could queue up for that instead and most would pop the same (except the map of the week would pop more). This was because of the good rewards for queueing random.

All of that could have been attempted by Bioware years ago. I mean they clone just about everything else WoW does, but often over look the better stuff they do.
Unfortunately there aren’t enough people left to try that now,
