My 28k hp guardian take would solely queue for huttballs with 1 scoundrel healer, 1 sage bubble healer, and 1 combat sentinel

Bubble is back to a mez and only works on the caster in 2.0.

We can't choose wz because of huttball. A premade could only que for huttball and finish their weekly in less than hour. The best we could hope for is to be able to choose 1 or 2 wzs that you don't want to que for.

Choosing your warzone wouldnt work.

I hate civil war and Hypergates, I never have the desire to play them. If you choose your own warzone then everyone would be specialized in one warzone and playing against them would be impossible. Not to mention that people who do like those 2 horrible warzones would never have anyone to play with. I vote that we can opt out of 2 warzones and also have an in progress warzones joining toggle similar to the group finder.

Not Choosing a specific warzone, give us a give a system where we can prioritize maps. Players should be able to say that they prefer one map before other. This way, for example, if huttball on average will be a map more prefered by the players queued, they will get to play huttball.

I for example would really like to see Civil War and Novarre Coast as rare as possible. Personally i don't see the point of playing on maps specifically catered to stealthers.

If I never saw a Voidstar or Huttball again, I would be beyond happy.

Does no one understand, that if we could choose specific warzones, a lot of the other warzones wouldn't get played.
After all the time spent to build them? but thats only a minor issue.
The REAL problem would be, ppl would be building SPECIFIC premades and owning you in that warzone, and Vice Versa.
And Quite franly, a lot of you might think you're good just because you have gear or ARE geared, But you would be so so wrong.
I've seen Elite War heros Do terrible in groups and even 1v1s. Just in general it would be a terrible idea. Especially for the Newcomers who happen to enjoy that Perticular WZ but can't play it cause all the Pros will spam that warzone and win alll the time against the bads. (just because tey are bad doesn't mean they won't get better).
But eventually, just about anyone, would get tired of LOSING that one warzone they love to play all the time. its bad enough that we lose it to Pugs or just in general, the opposing side always seems to be better then you.
And there are tons of other reasons why, that i'd be willing to debate on.

I think the 'likely' issues with being able to choose which WZ could cause problems, it would really depend on the size of populations (cross server anyone?) but perhaps an alternative to choosing which WZ you want to play would be to weight each War Zone preferentially, something like a a pool of 10 points that you can assign to each war zone, minimum 1 point.

So you could tag Ancient Hyper-gate with 1 point, making it your least favourite WZ and the last thing you should be queued to play, you could assign 6 points to Hutt Ball, 1 to each of the others and in theory end up playing 6 times as many HB games as any of the others,.

There has to be some form of choice other than quitting every Ancient Hyper-gate that pops, leaving a team a man down till backfill dumps some other player who doesn't want to play it into it.

Not unless they release more warzones and implement cross server queues for regs which will never happen. Keep it random. Classes who's roles fit better for certain warzones will only be queuing for those warzones. If I know I could only get huttball my team would be two tank jugs an assassin and a sorc, boom win.

would love a hybrid of the current system with a pvp match browser

Make the maps have a standard rotation (though this may make people quit out of matches more idk) aka cw-->vs-->hb--->lc---->ah---> back to cw

keep the random q from anywhere no change to that if someone wants to do it

add a server/warzone browser feature showing the matches currently being played with how many slots are full/empty. If the match is full one could choose that queue/server to wait for an open spot.

I'm sure this will never happen, but I think it would have merits, so if you didn't like hb for instance you could choose to q for a match that is currently doing lost coast, so you wouldn't see hb for at least 3 maps in your queue
