Re: Huttball

Gimmicks are cheap. You wanna stand up there and spam the fire trap? Time to stop confusing gimmicks with skill. Bring three healers so no one can die then spam the same tricks over and over? You're not playing Huttball you're playing "fire trap".

Maybe they should make a new warzone called fire trap where the whole objective is to see how many people you can pull into the fire. You can spam but you can't play Huttball.

Take away the immorto-heals and you lose 0-6. Take away the random extra healer in your que and you've got no game. Because you can spam all you want but you have no idea how to play the dynamic game of Huttball.

To me a game based on gimmicks is no game at all. A strategy based on gimmicks is no strategy at all. A win based on gimmicks is no win at all.

I hate spawning into your gimmick team and I hate seeing what crap you turn this game into from either side.

You ruin my game, I'll ruin your game. I'll pick out which one of you I hate the most and make your game a living hell. But you deserve worse.

Pulled into? Many. Died? Twice. The point here is to express hate for cheap play. Like hating the New Orleans Saints: totally justified.

Gimmick spam is the refuge of the unskilled ball player.

I have no problem with the fire pullers cause thats usually all the game they have, they can't actually beat people so they let the fire do it for them. They also usually target anyone that comes along and not concentrate on the ball carrier. Just last night I watched an *** pull a healer into the fire killing him, letting the ball carrier run in for a score.

Bad players need all the help they can get.

I also have a PT. Perhaps its because my main is a juggy but I just can't bring myself to resort to cheap tricks. Like my juggy my hybrid PT is always in the mid of the din (thank you jet charge), not just to attack the ball carrier but to perform active crowd control. There are probably some better Huttball players out there but I really thrive at this warzone in its natural state.

To my thinking, the only way I would have the option of gimmick spamming would be if I quit playing the game and decided to just stand there on the ledge and wait for people to run by, or at best run from ledge to ledge in hopes of being able to snag the ball carrier; but just thinking about it feels cheap. I wouldn't be guarding our healer or the ball carrier, I wouldn't be clearing the path, I wouldn't be playing Huttball.

The only time I see gimmick spam teams win is when they have a whole group composed of OP heals (OP by numbers) and chain/gimmick spammers, where the idea is to get a group who, by heals and pulls are able to negate the dynamics of the game itself and simply "win" because they can't die and everybody else eventually can. If they don't luck out with an extra healer in the que they still lose. And they don't lose because the extra people in their que are "bad", but because those adds classes do not support their gimmick of a "strategy". Just playing with them sucks.

There is truth in what you say, though.

Every skill is gimmicky... your PT (Overpowerd DPS) and Jug Hybrid (Overpowered Movement options).

to be honest I think your giving EA (Bioware doesnt exist in reality anymore) far to much credit.

The players have found a use for the fire and acid traps that im sure EA never for saw in the planning stage!
