Also got an unlucky lag spike once and ran into one of the little corner pillars while the fire was up...
lol what I mean is i have the ball, i'm standing in front of the fire pit, KNOWING a nearby enemy is just salivating waiting for me to walk over it so they can stun me

i wait for one of several team members to run over it unmolested so i can pass or jump to them. none do. they stand there derping around in a circle at me

that happened more than 5 times last week. thank god for alt+up arrow "get in front of me" spam

This, this and a thousand times THIS! Or, also, the flip side. The other guy has the ball, and you are waiting on the other side of the fire, and does he/she pass? No, they wait for the fire to go out, start across, get stunned, and burn up.

Irks me to no end.

But I like HB, overall.

Why don't you like Voidstar? That seems to be another "love it or hate it" warzone.
Below this is my referral link. If you press it you get free stuff and I get free stuff. This makes you, me....and Bioware happy, but don't let that stop you!

If I was able to, I would queue for nothing else but huttball

I find it funny that people try to say this point isn't true.

It's not like most classes have any way to resist being knocked off ledges or pulled off or whatever and few classes have ways of getting right back up without running all the way around.

I play as a Sniper most of the time, and Snipers generally own in Huttball. I never touch the ball, I sit at the top of the ledges throwing down G's of damage for as long as I want. It's a load of fun. My team ALWAYS wins.

So, why no love for huttball?
Huttball is the best warzone/battleground I have ever played.

Why do people hate it? Different from what they are used to.

I have very mixed feelings about huttball. My class seems to be quite good for that warzone. I play as a shadow tank, and know what I am doing. That means I end up carring the ball quite often, but often I end up wondering what the rest of my team is doing. I mean in random groups almost nobody seems to be helping winning the game, they go and zerg somewhere instead of healing me, pulling me closer to the goalline, protecting me, or just be somewhere I can through them the ball to when something when wrong and I ended up i the pit... that makes this warzone one of the most frustrating one, because it seems that it is more team dependant than the others.

It's true not many people know how to play it. Yesterday I had four of the opposing team chasing me around (I play as sniper), while the rest of my team kept scoring. Quite funny.

But when I do, it's to do this

Love Huttball. On my sniper as well as about every other AC in the game, but really love it as my sniper. I don't just stay up top much. Depends on if I am controlling mid. I will move up and use leg shot to stop pursuers (often better to not kill them) of our carriers or even get in place to catch the ball and pass it along. Had a sorce pull me around tonight and I was up at the endzone before I knew it. Give me a class with an enemy pull and LOLS will be had as well.
