Who’s ready for some HUTTTTBALLLLL?

You. You are ready. And since you’re so ready to engage in Star Wars: The Old Republic’s quirky PvP mode, you might as well test out the new Huttball arena that’s coming late September’s Game Update 5.9.3, which is now up on the PTR for preview.

The centerpiece of the Fame and Fortune patch is a new 8v8 Huttball warzone called The Sky Shredder. BioWare described the scenario: “Battle atop a deathly flying barge in this brand-new Huttball map set on the gas mining planet of Vandin.” Sounds like a lovely day for all involved.

The update will also bring level scaling to the Fallen Empire and Eternal Throne expansions, allowing max-level players the benefits of command XP and other rewards while playing through these chapters.

One wonders how many bugs this one will release with. Will it crash the launcher multiple times? Will it have more stuck in the ground bugs? Will the win trading get worse? SO many possibilities!

Huttball was legit why I avoided PVP battlegrounds in that game.
I really enjoyed the non-Huttball stuff, but Huttball was just… so… boring!

(and borderline-broken if you don’t have the most perfect ping).

Very excited to try it on the PTS, sadly the devs didn’t advertised it with time, so I’ll try next weekend.

ANOTHER PvP update you say?? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!

Its almost as if the PVP devs are running the show..oh wait, they ARE!!!…

they better put some quality pve updates out before the playerbase leaves…. oh wait, never mind, that ship has sailed :)

I never imagined I’d be a part of the creation of the Dummies guide to killing MMO’s based on much loved I.p’s and killing the fanbase of your company in one go (title not final).

Truly and honor.. *sniffle*

okay sarcasm mode off.

This game has been on the decline since they wrapped Eternal Empire. It was a nice little solo romp, but this game has never had any real staying power as a full featured MMO. Its survived on its IP alone.

Hjeheheh what a waste of Big IP Mmo :/ Sad Sad Sad that Eaware’s Skeleton Sized Crew working with Swtor totally wasted Development time on this summer :/ Pointless time wasting updates with small crew working on basement & Real Bling Bling Store is heavily advertised all around cause of EA :/ EA Suits Also managed to Indoctrinate many into their disgusting marketing.

Wonder why Massively Overpowered’s Crew still releases content update news about this Disgusting Big IP “ex Mmo”. Prev. Swtor article about ways to save this Trash was semi well written by person who released it & it got many good comments :)

Kindly: Pre Ordered D.Deluxe Edition. Sub Since Launch up to End of 2016. Returned Oct. 2017, but Sad cause Still Lack of Proper Mmo Content & no Good Plans for it on Sight. Sub Renewal Axed at Dec 2017. Pst: Up to date about so called SW Big IP Mmo Development :/ #WeNeedRealKotor3 #NotSwtorAsKotor3Duh #EatDirtCharlesBoyd #EatDirtLeadDesignerKevin #WaitingSubWorthyNews #WaitingLoginWorthyNews #BigIPDisaster
