Huttball for Dummies

This strat helps you to control mid the whole time, while scoring like a champ. Anyone who can aoe stun STAYS mid (guard/juggs, mara/sents, guns/ops/sco/snip) Only one Shadow places phasewalk on A (top platform enemy side) and remains stealth. Anyone (prefer… a tank) gets the ball at B1, crosses the acid UNTIL B2. Pass to the shadow on top, and moves back to middle, repeat.

Huttball isn’t a typical PvP scenario in the sense that killing isn’t your main objective. Instead, your main focus is on scoring goals. Think football meets an army obstacle course and you begin to get an idea of what you’ll be dealing with. You’ll have to deal with many obstacles such as multiple levels, fire pits and of course other players. You have to remember that your main goal is to score points. If your team has the ball, help get it to the other team’s pit and if the opposing team has the ball, kill them or intercept the ball. Whichever team has the most points at the end of the game, wins. If there…
