This is the reason I like deathmatch.

Team deathmatch adds to the variety in much the same way that arenas add to warzones. It gives me a chance to use my gunship more often, and I find myself dogfighting a lot there too.

I do, however, have two gripes:

1) Powerups take away all the sense of immersion for me, and turn it into an arcade game rather than a true integrated component to the whole of SWTOR. Then again, we have speed, healing, and damage powerups in all the ground warzones too, so maybe i'm not being fair.

2) I wish there were more game modes released before TDM, just like there were five warzone maps before they introduced arenas. Still, it was probably the easiest of all to design and breaks up the monotony.

Anyway... I feel better now. Thanks.

i stopped using my bomber in death matches altogether. it would always say i wasn't contributing when the thing could only boost for 5 seconds, has massive power draw, and it can barely turn at all.
people on the internet are only mean because they can get away with it

I like it in the same sense of huttball for warzones: When it's a game that's going real well for your side, it's really fun. When you're the side that's just getting pounded into the floor? It's a suckfest.

i'm finding TDM a lot more fun than Domination. which is odd as I like objective based game modes.

the weapon power-ups are awesome to reload my rocket pods.

I've gotten wafflestomped in Domination and wafflestomped in Deathmatch, and getting my butt kicked in Deathmatch is far less painful for me.

I like DM but they really need to implement a way to stop people from hiding at there capitol ship... Maybe an incidental chance of friendly fire from the capitol ship? Maybe there is no capitol ship in this mode? Something that would stop the cowards from hiding on it.

The only time I see people hiding at their capital ship is when the opposing team has slaughtered them and set up camp right outside the ship.
