Huttball is the best BG ive seen in a game yet. AMAZING job on that one BW. I love the teamwork needed to win. Some matches can get very intense when both sides know what they are doing. Sages are the most fun with our pull ability. I love pulling people that have the ball to a safe area or into the endzone.

Id like to see BW make different maps for huttball.

I like it also.

I just hope they learn from other MMOs and bring out plenty of warzones so they don't get stale.

I've only done a handful of them... and it's been a clusterjam of people not talking and just fighting each other.

Not to mention I'm severely outleveled hehe.

But I like it so far.

I like it overall, but there are some things that are wonky. When my BH grapple works again, I'll be happy. Or if it worked on levels higher that my character like Force Jump, so it could possibly counter people who use Force Jump, and like abilities to get out of the pit.

It's probably more that instanced PvP is inevitably boring.

ORvR is where it is at!
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Most people that complain about Huttball are Imperials. That is the only Warzone they get to play because they are so overpopulated, else they'd have 25 minute waits for Warzones.

Because its the only warzone that seems to be chosen. I'd love to play the other's more often...or be able to choose which one I am in the queue for.

I don't dislike Huttball but I actually think it would be more fun if it was almost round based where one team is offense trying to score the other is defense. This way theres a bit more strategy, currently it's pretty much a cluster **** until someone can use a gap closer or escape to distance themself and pass to the guy standing on the cat walk doing nothing but waiting.

That's a completely personal and biased opinion.

I for one, relish the fact that I don't have to spend an hour looking for someone that may or may not even be there to fight out in a huge zone.

Queue up, and go.

Love it.

I used to hate it, but now I like it.

Once you figure out that passing is the key, it becomes much easier to win even in PuGs.

PuGs haven't learn to intercept passes well yet, they do it by accident mostly.
