AFAIK they've never said anything about it being in 1.5.

Not sure why it's so difficult to crank out a new WZ every few months. Box off some random section of an existing area, put some platforms and jump pads in, draw a line at each end, and you have another Huttball map. The same could be done with Novare Coast and Civil War, which are both extremely basic warzones. Heck, they've released more operations than warzones and those are way more complex. Even a big empty room where everyone just has a big chaotic deathmatch brawl would be better than nothing

I'm just wondering who is doing this "heaving testing", and how much of it is required...

So before year end? Not bad at all. One year has gone by and we already have 5 WZs. I think that's pretty good considering all the flak this game gets by its own player base for not having enough content.

I would like a free for all WZ where the winner is determined by how many kills in 5 mins. It would be a quick WZ but fun for all.

if the new pvp content is supposedly in a 'heavy testing' phase then why isn't it even on PTR? Why can't you guys copy our chars to PTR and pop the new content on there for us to test?

Fear not! New Warzone content is in heavy testing and should be in the next major patch after 1.5. We hesitate to give exact timing, but definitely before the year's end.
Nice and great news, thanks =)

1/1.5 wz per year with their really small size... Very bad.

Maybe it's just me but anyone else feel like those of us PvP'ers have been getting pushed to the side as far as new stuff for us?!? I love PvPing in this game and at times it can get a little so called boring but for me it's only because we are so limited to the ammount of WZ's we have. I plan on keeping my sub for the simple fact that I enjoy pvping with my Sniper. I have my fingers crossed and will remain hopeful we will finally get some new stuff like WZ's, the never ending preseason to finally come to an end, and hell maybe even cross server PvP! Until then I look forward to more killing and even more deaths!

Hiya Allison!

Your posts are always a pleasure.

Slightly off topic, but related to the Hypergate Warzone in the E3 trailer, the music that starts at 0:43 and ends at 0:50, will that be in the new Warzone? Cause I LOVE it

Thank you for your post,
AshlaBoga
