News: Play Huttball in Star Wars: The Old Republic

August 22, 2011

I just saw this video about “Huttball,” which appears to be a game sort of similar to “extreme” soccer that players of the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG can play against each other. Apparently it’s supposed to be sponsored by Giradda the Hutt (pictured below).

To be honest, I kind of hate everything about this. Everything from the name (Huttball? Really?) to the announcer and the overall tone of the game seem wrong to me. And don’t get me started on the idea of Jedi and Sith playing a ball game with their lightsabers (much less teaming up with each other). MMORPGs take so much time that I doubt that I’d be a regular player in any case, but I had thought about checking it out. Now I’m not so sure.

    say what you say, i love it. Wish they would make it into a competition with guild teams vs guild teams and sorts! Communication and teamwork are very much needed here, more then any other warzone imho. So far i like everything the game has to offer, hopefully soon i’ll get to enjoy glorious world pvp massacres and endgame raiding content.
