INC Gamers SWTOR PvP Preview

For many MMOs, the PvP is one of the most exciting aspects. Some players choose games based solely on the PvP aspects. We’re still learning about PvP in SWTOR but the good news is that with the past couple of beta weekends and the NDA lifted, we can learn more about SWTOR PvP than ever before.

INC Gamers tells us about about three of the PvP Warzones (it’s assumed there are more). The writer, Tim McDonald talks about playing in Huttball, The Voidstar and the Alderaan Civil War and he gives an account of how he felt when playing each of these warzones.

Here’s a snippet:
“There currently appears to be no way to queue for a specific Warzone, so I’ve played some more than others. To be more specific: I’ve played Huttball 52 million times.”
52 million, huh? Sounds like enough to form a good opinion on the experience. We know what he’s talking about from our own experiences in game testing. He goes on to tell us a little more about the game itself:
“Huttball is… well, it’s a sport. Sort of. Two teams (the Rotworms and the Frog-Dogs) compete to carry the ball, which starts in the middle, to opponent’s goal. If the ball carrier dies, his murderer gets the ball.”
While Huttball might be all that game testers are getting into, it’s not the only PvP in SWTOR. McDonald also tells us some about Voidstar.
“The Voidstar is an assault gametype over two rounds. One team defends a ship that the others are attacking, and then the sides switch at the end of the first round”.

Read more of his SWTOR PvP impressions and let us know what you think in the comments. It’s a long, in-depth review of PvP and it’s worth the time to give it a read. Whether you agree with all of his opinions or not, it will give you a little more perspective on the game.
