Take Alderaan Civil War.

-Reskin it with Balmorran landscape and themes.
-Change up the compound in the middle slightly, rotate the walls and ramps around a little.
-Add in some of the corrosive slime pits found on Balmorra as huttball type traps.
-Name it "Balmorran Civil War".

Its easy, it makes sense lorewise, and it will be SOMETHING new for PvP content.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

It took me less than 5 mins to come up with that. Bioware, you can do better. It is your job to do better, and you have had a lot longer than 5 mins.

If you can't do better, I'll gladly email you my resume

Give us CTF.

Capture the huttball. A throwable flag!

King of the hill type stuff.

New huttball maps (that CANNOT be that hard).

Off the top of my head in 3 seconds.

I've been saying this for a year.

Every new WZ does NOT need to be a new game type. From the very beginning the should have designed WZ maps like Call of Duty. The game type could be reskinned with a new map. Then all they had to do was throw a new skin on Huttball, a new skin on Voidstar, etc.

WZs should have 10-15 maps by now at close to 2 years in.

Yes please on capture the flag and king of the hill.
CTF just like hutball but each side has their own flag.
KotH just like civil war or novare coast but with a single node to capture.

And just like others were saying, slightly different maps for the same game modes already in play.

Just 1 new map would improve my outlook for this game this summer.

Looking further down the road, my priorities are as follows:

1. Matchmaking system
2. Cross-server queue

Regarding the matchmaking system, you guys were working on this about 8 months ago when rateds first went live. You even had one on the test server but then decided to pull the system when you launched the patch. Have you guys just thrown in the towel? It doesn't need to be perfect. Any system would be better than the system we currently have - which is none at all.
