The war zones are super important to pvp even if the community dose not see it. Most MMO games have several open zones for pvp and these are ours. Otha as it sits is boring and broken.
It's perfectly true, there is a lack of PVP stuff to do. We need more maps like you said, we need more game types like you said. You're under some weird impression the PVP Community hasn't realized in the last 3-4 years of PVP starvation.
If Gozer was still here he'd take your perfectly plausible picture once everyone had had their points heard and, and all the lovely constructive feedback was pinned down - and then he'd stick it on his fridge and wander away.
Otha is a dump. I am there a lot. It is barren and its charm wears off quickly unless you are involved in a fleet war. I mean a lrger scale map with NPCs that offer missions and many more objectives.
Meh just make a pvp zone of nimbus... blue team starts in the "Paradise city" ... Red team starts in... shipwreck... dump in some pve stuff... leave the scoprions and worms as hazards... boom.. done.... pew pew pew
