The Western Ice Shelf is the Illum PvP area. So, I would guess in a few weeks we will start seeing more about 1.7 and know for sure.

I assume they are unless they want to take a rash of **** and 1.6 dropped 12/11 so we would be looking at last week of January. So I would expect something on PTS in a week or so.

Ilum needs to return so that people can multibox or a larger warzone similar to av in wow. Imagine having 5 snipers under your control all firing at the exact same time or maybe 5 operatives. You can also try multiboxing with more than 5 characters and include some healers. Only problem is you will need a computer for each character and special hardware to link all the computers to one keyboard and mouse.

any idea on when the update is or event... i remember something was coming in jan/feb
Your PC has NOTHING to do with server latency. When 200+ players get together and start PvP'ing, you will experience what everyone else does, your computer is irrelevant lol.

Prior to 1.6, they did tell us that 1.7 (not by name) may stretch to 9 weeks due to the holidays.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

I remember being on ilum with huge 150+ on 150+ and yes it was lag fest but i was still able to live and get kills. Where as others couldn't even go there.

Never...they are revamping Ilum but will not be bringing back the open pvp area there. Looks like large scale pvp in this game is dead.
-I would rather pay for a great game than play a poor game for free.
-Viable and worthwhile are not the same when it comes to class design.
