I find it very hard to do, and most of the time I'm swarmed so bad and chain stunned I'm unable to toss the ball.

If anyone has any advice on how to properly throw the huttball, with tips and tricks I'm sure many people would benefit from this knowledge!!
There is your problem.

You're running with the ball! You need to stop that.

Step 1: get the ball (either from center, or someone passes it to you)
Step 2: locate a teammate within 1 clock second of obtaining the ball
Step 3: stop and pass the ball to them: elapsed time < 2 clock seconds

If you aren't doing it like that, you're doing it wrong.

Here's another tip: Make it so you can zoom out your view distance to max. It makes throwing 'up' a LOT easier. Zoom out and click the walkways without having to tilt the cam.

Otherwise it's basically just an AoE. Also keep in mind, if the person you are throwing to is stunned and an enemy is near the circle, they will intercept it.

Lead with your saber or laser haha.

This, forever. I took my jedi shadow friend who doesn't pvp much into her first Huttball game and she was all worried because she didn't know what to do. I said go stealth in the endzone and unstealth when someone gets close enough to pass. She got 4 scores.

Seriously, this strategy is basically unbeatable. They can't stealth scan the whole endzone.
