Please remember you aren't a one man recking ball, and with it being a team event you don't have to be.

Even if you aren't worrying about the ball in huttball or taking the flags or whatever how about trying some of these tips out to enjoy it that bit more....

-attack someone who is already under attack (thus increasing effectiveness)
-attack healers (or those with markers on first, as no doubt they are there for a reason and are players considered most dangerous to your team)
-dont' be afraid to stun and run (if you become seperated from the pack don't let that stealther simply stay out of the main area and pick your team off one at a time, make them come back and get involved with the rest)....grenades could help if necessary and theyre cheap on the GTN.

Relax and enjoy it but most of all, try working with people, you don't have to ask permission to help them take their opponent down and im sure they'll be glad of it in fact.

The time of the Empire is now truly upon us

I noticed a lot of new people in lowbie pvp over the weekend. It is very daunting to go against experienced players who may have better gear and more abilities. Especially the true lowbies who don't even have things like interrupts yet.

The above list is short and sweet, as it should be. I would add the following as a "second pass"
- Try not to guard a node by yourself. Without many skills, it will be hard for you to defend. Use chat to ask for relief, then stick close to your teammates
- Right now all the pvp in SWTOR is objective-based. Pay attention to how your teammates capture objectives, and how other teammates support them.
A classic sig that should not be lost:
Stunned , pew pew hack slash , stunned , running backward circles, stunned cannot move, pew pew, break stun, 30 second snare, wha?!?!!? stunned, knockdown, ...less stun more pew pew and hacknslash please.
