Epic Warzone? 40+ man?

I just played some WoW BGs and realized how fun AV is (even though it is now only a butchered version of the epic original). I just feel so bored of 8v8... It doesn't feel epic at all and Ilum is about as awesome as drying paint.

So, my question... when will we see some epic WZ?

well since on most servers there are hardly 40 level 50 republics online at the same time I'd say probably not until they fix the population imbalance

If you've fought 40v40 Ilum, you'll know why not many people will want 40v40 WZ. It's a literal slideshow of 2-5 FPS.

Noooooooooooo!

Please god no, those 40-man zerg fests on WoW were horrendous ... hard enough to get into a random team for huttball where everyone knows what to do.

Do you...not realize that the lag stems from everyone's objectives and valor updating, not to mention zone buffs being applied during base conquests? It has nothing to do with kills alone.

Larger warzones would likely work just fine.

Would be great if you are a fan of power point presentations.

That's funny because on my server, Illum is dead. No One seems to really do ops. And Huttball is always full?! Hyperspace Cannon is pve guys.

edit: I'd rather see more zone/resource conquering systems like Planetside and the agency online.
Sith Assassin Helm & Hood? :Not included with purchase of SWTOR.

I'm pretty sure the lag and FPS is based on the sheer amount of force lightning, shock, grenades, bombs, explosions, flying stones/droids/rocks/pebbles and an overall really bad coding of Ilum.

Also, there would be some serious queue time for these epic warzones.

Those are the best, because it stops becoming pvp, and starts becoming pvz.
