Agreed, been saying this forever.

I tend to agree that a small format game type like 4v4 would tend to highlight class imbalances. Bioware would need to modify their approach to class balance if they want to introduce that type of game format. I think that type of game sounds fun but would like balance to be approached like it has been in Heart of the Swarm with few small changes rather than big sweeping ones and not letting the game settle out. This takes patience on Bioware's part and it takes getting balance mostly right at the beginning.

  • self paired 8v8 matches (i.e. challenge matches -- no rewards, just fun)
  • providing a good mechanism for cross server PvP (e.g. a PTS like server for PvP WZ only and free transfers to/from this server)
  • improved match scheduling and player control over match scheduling (fewer one sided curbstomps)
  • dual (or triple, or quadruple) spec support with quickbar configuration included. Throw in automated gear change and I'll wet myself
None of the above is a sexy new WZ but I want better infrastructure more than I want
every pvp teams in europe are going on the same server because theire isn't any crossServer queing...they just want to find some challenge in this game and the community had to do it by itself with the lonely choice they had (paying choice of course...)

Hrm, apparently you don't understand the concept of spammable cc by one person like polymorph in WoW.

I would like to see a 4v4, but with class restrictions. For example, each team can only have 1 jedi knight, 1 Jedi Consular, 1 Trooper, and 1 Smuggler. (That way we don't have 2 gunslingers and 2 scoundrels -.-)

Regardless, arenas will be awesome !
