Blue Milk & Cereal: What’s Your Favorite Warzone?

No day would be complete without the breakfast of Jedi: Blue Milk & Cereal.  Every morning, the team at Ask A Jedi will get Force-induced thoughts coursing through your head with delicious issues from around the galaxy! Join in the discussion below to make your voice heard!

It’s hard to believe that Star Wars: The Old Republic has been out for over 3 weeks, pushing a month if you count Early Game Access. So far, much of that time for most players has been spent leveling through their class stories. But one of the nice things about TOR are some of the diversions you can take along the way without slowing down your leveling progress. One of these side-activities is Space Combat. Once you get your starship, you can fly space missions for rewards and experience (and quite a lot, I might add!) But the other biggie is Warzones.

You can begin queueing up for PvP Warzones as early as level 10, and thanks to the assistance of the Bolster mechanic, players of all levels can be pitted against each other with relative competitiveness to one another. That’s not to say it’s always fair, and BioWare is recognizing that by creating a separate level 50 bracket for Warzones in an upcoming patch.

Right now, you can queue for a Warzone as a group, or you can queue solo and be matched with other players. But one choice you can’t make for some reason is WHICH Warzone you want to play. Each of the 3 currently available offer different gameplay styles: Alderaan offers a classic control point match, Voidstar is a great assault-style match and Huttball… well, it’s kind of like capture the flag. But you can throw the flag to other players. With acid and flames thrown in for good measure.

So at this stage of the game, we’re just curious which Warzone you prefer the most? Would you like to see more variety? Or at least pick which one you want to queue for? Let us know!

  1. Voidstar: I always lose that one, no matter what team I’m one.

    Huttball: The commentary makes it fun. But more often than not, Imperial team wins by 5-0

    Alderaan: actually a warzone that has even odds of being won =) And the most fun warzone too.

  2. I like Huttball the most, not because it is the most difficult, rewarding, unbalanced or anything of the sort, but because its fun as hell

  3. ScytheNoire says:

    Huttball is the most imbalanced. It’s the one that a guild group can just roll over the other team. It also has the steepest learning curve.

    Void Star is simple in design, but players don’t seem to be smart enough to realize that if it’s 6 on 1 on your side of the door, then what exactly is going on on the other side of the door? Uh huh. Might want to go over there.

    Alderaan is what most are used to. Three capture points, keep two to win. It’s just my favorite because even the dumbest of players seems to be able to get the concept.
