I'm glad that they are in. But like many, I yearn for epic open world PvP. Alas Mr Hickman was very honest, and I appreciate it, in saying that this game is just no going to be an open world type PvP game. I just find that disappointing that we will not be able to mimic epic battles from the films or create our own.

But I digress... I will certainly try them out (the arenas) and look forward to diving into another PvP experience. I hope that at some point we will see 8v8 & maybe even 16v16. Sorry to seem a bit negative, but I will give it a shot--I just hope that the rest of the PvP community will as well..........

Sometimes there is just too much LoS for the healers and they can't get off their support abilities because their friendly targets are weaving their way through all the blockers. Point being, it is a balancing act and we are iterating on it every day!

I'm writing up a blog post today (it won't be posted until next week or possibly the week after, gotta translate it and get the big bosses to rubber stamp it) to explain in more detail these Warzone Arenas and our methodology in balancing them. Really looking forward to yall getting your hands on them asap! The feedback from players that have played them already has been overwhelmingly positive!

Cheers!

I seriously can't wait for these arena's and yes they do look awesome from those pics! Glad I re subbed

The Space Garage PvP Arena better lead up to getting on our ships for a massive pvp space battle....It's long overdue for some galactic warfare.

Just so you know, engine got several optimizations since launch. Second, modifying engine is not an easy thing to do

Im very excited about this update. Was wondering though, since the arenas look to be situated 'in world' is there any chance we could place our toons out side them and watch? Maybe with an option to choose what instance we were watching? Don't even know if thats technically possible but it would be very cool thing to do while you Q for your next match...

this is the best news ever.

actually, i want baron deathmark to narrate my entire gaming experience.
every time i get knocked off a ledge on makeb, try to sneak past some mobs and accidentally pull them, or bit off more than i can chew by trying to solo a champion or something.

cos it all ends badly in a really epic sort of way, and i want him to taunt me the whole time to the point where i want to turn around and yell at him 'will you stop following me?!'

Oh, Some good new on the PVP front! Looking forward to those even tho I'm not a huge arena fan. This will make a difference and might bring some of the pvp crowd back!

I was just getting bored now where I have leveled all 8 classes to 55!
Good Timing - and good times everyone!

I'm rather interested how the queuing will work for those, instead of judging the game-play.
We seen 3 screenshots of each and people already cry. No wonder BW just hands those info's to people who attend to the cantina tours.
