Basing from what other folks have said I'm guessing its under 8man team fights or 1v1?
He is referring to WoW's style of arena. Teams of 2v2, 3v3, etc in a closed arena WITH different terrain and features allowing for LoS, kiting and the like.

Arena has been a hot topic since release. BW has already addressed it several times, including the first Guild Summit. They wanted to let ToR develop and allow a base to be established before it could be effectively turned for arena and an E-sport. That was the gist of what I read, though that was a while ago.

I actually think 3v3 arena would be really interesting. To see Tank/healer/DPS teams going against trip-DPS gib teams... Can't wait to twitch those videos

Now that what i call a good answer

Oh please, it has absolutely nothing to do with health pools, and everything to do with the fact that smaller teams magnify balance discrepancies.

You think a 'balanced' team would last 2 minutes against 3 stacked stealthers? I beg to disagree. Leave it to WoW (who regrets implementing it).

Understandable. I don't want a carbon-copy of WoW's arena, but there is a HUGE opportunity for BW when they decide to bring something like this out.

This is the "Rise of the Hutt Cartel" Expansion? Introduce a Hutt sanctioned arena. Not just teams fighting teams, but an arena where OTHER people can watch live... Maybe even place bets on the winners??? I would fully back that and can just imagine if they implemented it how many people would enjoy sitting on Nar Shaddah or whatever to root people on.

I can haz dev job BW?

Ah ok, thank you for clearing it up, I have never played wow so I am not 100% sure what it is exactly still lol, but it seems like small team pvp matches (just googled wow arenas for more details). I do wish though if someone is going to reference something from another game they would say where it is coming from so I can at least look up what they are talking about if I never played that particular game/mmo before heh.
You know what the first rule of flying is? Love. You take a boat in the air that you don't love,
she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.
Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down.
Tells you she's hurting before she keels. Makes her a home.

The middle room in Hypergate is pretty much an arena already. Game starts, one person from each team caps pylon, the remaining 14 players slug it out in the middle

Yup. Did it today... A well timed guard from a tank, fast changes and skill > class mechanics and bolster.

3 "stacked stealthers"? So you are saying that their gear is the imbalance and not the bolster or class mechanics... I can only argue one at a time.

Yes, an operative can catch me off-guard while healing and kill me. But you can't complain that bolster/imbalance is the problem when you aren't geared enough or they are geared more than you. The best players aren't on here complaining, they learned how to adjust.

just sayin'

So pvp is currently balanced right ok......... those 6k mauls spammed 2x by 3 shadows wont drop anyone in seconds or those "working as intended" pt's are still viable or what about a 3x healer team where would the challenge be 3x sage would be impossible to kill with the immunity bubble it would be imba also who on earth wouldn't take certain classes i think ranged would suffer as a whole how would a immobile turret class fair in a pillar hugging match? Not very well ranked hasn't started so i doubt arenas will come anytime soon.

You wearing WH/EWH gear at 55 and being suprised that you are under-performing isn't what BW calls "working as intended" either.

BTW VG/PT are fine if you're not a moron. Ours is still a beast, the only thing that changed was the skill of the operator is apparent.
