Also, I am a casual gamer not an Elitist.

Rated warzones allow you to do just that. As soon as they put out Cross-server queues, they're re-enabling 8-man queues.

Pre-Season is and will be occurring before this happens.

We'll have about a month of pre-season prior to server-wide queues.

Penalties will be in place for 1.2...

So for those of you that don't follow that...

1.2 will release with the penalties and that starts pre-season ~ AFTER pre-season the ranked/server-wide queues begin.

So there's actually about a month WITH penalties and no cross-server.

Stephen Reid clarified today that in 1.2, for ranked warzones only, you can do 8 man queues. http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=3339075#edit3339075

Will we be able to pick the wz we want to play in pre season?

I don't remember EXACTLY when that was happening but, I believe, no ~ If memory serves, it will come with cross-server queuing due to the fact that server populations can't exactly handle specific WZ's.

Yeah, I worded it poorly. He wanted to queue with 8, so "Rated warzones allow you to do just that." and for normal warzones, the rest of my post applies.

Just saw a news article about Harold Camping, the doomsday preacher who predicted the end of the world. Something about his picture seemed familiar though so I did a little editing in paint and made an amazing discovery. Thought you guys would enjoy this:

It wasn't large-scale PvP. It was war. Ilum, while still technically "open world" (i.e. not instanced) still had a very warzone-like feel to it. It would be nice to see some of the planets be redesigned to actively push the factions together. The only real PvP experience I got during leveling (and I played on Naddist Rebels, which is a mid-high population PvP server), was around Belsavis. While I appreciate that instancing allows for very dynamic and engaging storytelling, it would have been nice to get smashed face-first into some Republic. We are, after all, at war with each other. The story felt somewhat disconnected from that.

I very much agree. The devs admitted they got Ilum wrong and basically will be deprecating it in 1.2 until they can redesign it. I, for one, won't miss it. But I do want them to do open world pvp right. I'd love to see something like DAOC'S frontiers, but we won't get that depth because that game was designed around pvp.

Ilum is being deprecated in Game Update 1.2. The Open World PvP area on Ilum will still be present in 1.2, but rewards previously gained in Ilum will be available in Warzones and that's where we expect the bulk of PvP to take place for now.

As we said during the Guild Summit, the PvP team is 'going back to the drawing board' with Ilum. That means they want to rework it to be fun and engaging. We accept there are issues with the current design and want to ensure that what we end up with is enjoyable for PvP fans. We have no ETA on when a redesigned Ilum might be available, but when we do have more news, we'll share it.

The PvP team definitely monitors these Forums and would love to see constructive feedback on Open World PvP and how you feel it could be improved. They have their own ideas, of course, and they've read many of the posts here but more feedback is always welcome.

I can't wait for post 1.2 to see what they come up with!...
