With the testing of 4v4 available over on the PTS this weekend, Alex Modny has been watching the forums and responding to various questions. Here are some responses he's made so far, just to clarify some of the finer points of what we can expect. For the full story, hit the jump.
In response to how factions will play into this:
Warzone Arena matches can be Empire vs Republic, Empire vs Empire or Republic vs Republic.
Also, a bit of teasing about the rewards that will be available at the end of the first season:
Rewards will be announced after Season 1 starts but to tease yall, they are unique and make me very happy!
Apparently no team composition will be able to survive the sudden death mechanic as well:
No comp will be able to survive the Sudden Death effect. Please see my post about this from yesterday for more information.
Sorry everyone, I did a bad and left out a key factor in the Sudden Death gas effect. You won't receive any healing while in the gas.
So to sum up the gas effects are:
Takes the character out of stealth
Places the character in combat
Places a Damage-over-Time effect on the character that deal % of Health damage every tick
Prevents the character from receiving healing effects
Theory craft away!
Obviously testing will yield further questions and answers, and I'll do my best to stay on top of that for everyone.
