Is it possible for the devs to add an option that would allow us to NOT participate in same faction or certain warzones? I for one can not STAND playing huttball, its about the dumbest WZ in the game, honestly, I cant stand it...please let us be able to not even get dragged into it...would be a very nice feature.

It's already a pain to que sometimes so im happy to get into anything when i que up. Besides if they did this then ques would start taking immense amounts of time as trying to match groups who are looking for specific warzones would complicate things a ton. Lots of people enjoy huttball so if you opted out of it you may sit in the que all day. Then we'll start seeing all sorts of thread with people moaning about long que times.

so lets just keep forcing ppl to join random wz just to leave right before it starts cuz he didn`t like that wz. btw if lots of ppl enjoy huttball what s the prob means they`ll be happy we should all stay sad just to keep u and few others happy?

Your response is completely unreadable, but what i infer is that you hate huttball and are annoyed anyone else likes it? It's also not just a "few". In fact theres another thread right now with people bemoaning how it doesn't pop often enough. I dont care either way if you or anyone else likes it or not. In the end warzones are random because it allows faster ques and a general sense of higher enjoyment by not being forced to play the same WZ constantly.

If you had this option all you would be accomplishing by selecting only your one or two favorite zones would be limiting the matches you could join because they didnt garner a large enough group. You could test this by doing flashpoints because that does allow you to choose. Que up and pick only your favorite and see how long it takes to get a group together. Warzones are minutes anyway, so what's the big deal that you play through 10 mins of a match, get the rewards and then reque. You're going to spend 10 minutes queing and bouncing anyway hoping you end up in the one you want. It's not like warzones give different rewards depending on the match like FPs and ops do.

Oh and i enjoy huttball because its a quick smash and grab zone. It's a small area that forces you to fight your way through and run around like a mad man. It's fun, instead of bouncing next time try screaming headlong into the fray.

So how is your gameplay affected by allowing players the OPTION to select their favorite Warzone? If they want to wait longer to pop in a que, what business is that of yours? You can continue with your pot luck gameplay while others who would normally bounce out on you in three seconds are waiting for something else. It's a win for both side.s

Eh, in games that have done this I've gotten bored with them a lot faster tbh. Playing the same map over and over might seem awesome because you like it now, but it would get old fast.

So for the players that get bored with it, they can just check off for every Warxzone. I'm still waiting for a good reason not to implement this.

I think most people would play the original 3 more. Especially voidstar.
