Should DICE Port Over Every Map, Weapon, Hero From Battlefront 1 To Battlefront 2?

Prev1
As you might have already seen, some youtubers were showing off the new Bespin map, which is the exact same as the original, which to me I'm absolutely cool with that. I mean if they could do that, not sure if its a long task or not, that would give players a lot of maps making the game have a lot more maps to play on. Even maybe some weapons left out that were in the SWBF1 and even maybe Nien Nunb, Greedo, Dengar, Krennic, and Jyn. Would be nice, once they fix the lag issues, to play Bespin Starfighter Assault. Maybe even a cloud car lol I would also like to see the star cards for Viper Droids, R5-D4 Droids, and Medic Droid and other cards and weapons to return. Even simply porting them over would be good enough for me.

    Can you please stop advertising Star Wars HQ with their clickbait videos?
  • Yes i want all the Battlefront 2015 maps, weapons and heroes!!!

    Ya i know they re-added most weapons indirectly as either reinforcement weapons, default weapons for each faction, or as an ability like vanguard and stealth

    I''m not advertising. Just because I used their video as reference sources does not make it clickbait.
    Maps and heroes yes.weapons not sure about.

    The weapons probably will be brough in altered like how the EE-4 is the specialist's vanguard ability.
  • sure why not.

    Nien Numb.

    Him with his rapid fire gun. His air strike, and his divine ES turret.

    Gief.
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

    lol ya and i can't remember if nien nunb in other star wars games and such had a jetpack or not. can't remember though since it has been a while.
  • @SgtFergus

    Thx for posting the video my friend. It cleared up a few things I was unsure about. Hope they port all of the SWBF 2015 maps and weapons over to SWBF2!
  • I was really disappointed that they just added administrators palace as I think a lot of players would have liked a galactic assault map and would have loved the iconic carbonite freezing chambers to return. Besides the customization update in April that will bring new skins, I'm guessing that we will also get another Battlefront 2015 map as well. I do agree that they should just port over the maps.I'm pretty sure they cant port over the heroes over though.

    They probably count port the character models but they have to probably work on the animations and actions etc to make them work

    Yes, I want Specialist with X-9 Night Sniper. They need a good close range pistol that can be used long range. Also give him that rifle that shoots through shields, so we can pop Leia abusing secondary fire and hiding in her personal shield from across the map. Also give them Pulse Cannon to replace Infiltration. I never use Infiltration, so its a wasted slot for me and there needs to be other weapon options using L1+R1 for all classes.
  • Heroes yes, maps only dlc ones.
  • I loved all the bf one maps. And bring back extraction!

    not sure if that gun would be for specialist or for officer

    even the defaults were nice

    maybe that will be a strike type possibly
  • Everything needs ported over! Even though I didn't like all the weapons I still say yes because half the players are still over there in 2015. I know this cause I stop by every 4 days and play too.
  • Overall the maps were better. Especially hoth. Less chaotic too.

    I mean the thrist for any addition to the game is real. If they could import all their maps and characters from battlefront 1 that would be insane. The character selection goes up to 22 if they could add Obi-Wan that’s 11 playable characters on each side along with their cards and abilities. Along with maps from the 8 locations including Sullust and Scarif.

    As for the maps maybe they could try different approaches for example rotate the maps so when you go to a planet you play every available map on that planet or rotate so that you have a bf1 map followed by a bf2 map along with the day and night time versions with the combinations it would be nice.

    All the while dice continues to develop and make new content this would definitely help the drought.

    Ya I liked how it was setup too for that map

    would be amazing and they don't even need to model or texture. they'd just need to re-import everything and then configure it to work in SWBF2. Even easier than remastering a videogame for an anniversary.

    Looks like a post on something we all can agree on. Plus if they integrate all of the old maps, weapons, heroes, cards, game modes, even a fully functional skirmish where you are playing real matches against AI and not just scenarios. There would literally be no use to play SWBF2015 when this has it all and more.

    Exactly. all these imports from SWBF1, for how they will be less work then for making whole new content, they can definitely use this for the months in between by porting over the content from SWBF1 into SWBF2, like maps, weapons, vehicles, cards, heroes, skins even. That would be a huge improvement.

    ya port overs, which are a lot less needing to tweak, would be a big time saver between the seasons so there is always something new to get on for.
    Definitely yes !

    I hope DICE goes through with it

    Space battles were kinda mehh in swbf1

    The sad part is, I can't actually remember Dengar from SWBF1..

    Did he have some weird gimmick about him?

    I seem to recall the ideal comp back then was Vader (Saber. Obvious), Emperor (Royal Guard spawns. Chain Lightning, saberblock), and... One other guy..? Could it have been Bossk? Not sure tbh..
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima

    the heroes missing in this game are Greedo, Nien Nunb, Dengar, Jyn Erso, Orson Krennic

    Dengar was great in HvV SWBFEA1 but what would make him great in SWBFEA2 is that some maps, like Naboo and Hoth, in GA have stalemate problems where, due to limited access to get to the next area, offensive players are unable to push through tight corridors. but with Dengar he has the ability to run on full speed and start tossing mini explosives that can clear out a hallway, making defending players bunching up on on each other get wrekt and clear the way for the offense to make progress to the objective.



    They should also port over the modes too. make it some there is almost no point to play the originals if you have all the maps, modes, skins, weapons, cards, heroes, etc so we have all the fun back, even if they instead just move some of those modes into current existing like Fighter Squadron is just a blast mode for Starfighter Assault, would love to see a Space Assault mode instead incorporated from the very original Battlefront 2. Walker assault would just be in GA but it would be a new way to take down the ATATs etc. Something to keep us occupied while we wait for new DLC in the new seasons. That I feel the Batttlefront community would actually be down for.
  • I'd like too see memorable characters rather than low profile dudes. Where is Kenobi? Where is Qui Gon Jin while we have Darth Maul? Where is Count Dooku? General Grievous? Mace Windu? While we are missing those, why should i want other lads....

    all those will probably come in due time for DLC Seasons, we want to also, in the in-between parts have stuff from the first game ported in so we have something to enjoy during those long waits.

    I’d love a port of Battle Station. Apart from a great mode, I NEED TO PLAY AS R2D2 !!!

  • I wish we had hoth from swbf1. Something about that map in walker assault just worked better. It looked better graphically, the lighting or colors are just off in 2. 1 felt like the movie trying to take out the walkers in Walker assault. I really miss that map. I would love all the dlc and maps from swbf1, id pay for that. Anyone else miss the progression maps like deathstar assault? Culminating in the trench run? The scarif maps with extraction were fun too, but the opening star fighter battle was too short. That in star fighter assault would be amazing. Sf assault to me is the best thing in bf2. Such a great mode.

    Jakku in bf1 was way better too. I dont like the claustrophobic interior of the downed sd. I enjoyed the open nature of the first one, with a skybox littered with all out war. Kinda miss bf1 after thinking about this. After all the dlc it was a really good game that i slept on for way to long. Picked it up for 5 bucks with all dlc, ended up getting the platinum. Loved it.
  • I think this would be cool! I’d like to see a lot maps make returns and I know there’s some rumors out there that we’ll be seeing Scarif. But how easy would it be to get those maps into the game? Sullust, Bespin, Scarif, and even Vardos are fleshed out in the campaign. I hope to see them soon.

    Additionally, I think it would be cool somewhere along the line if a bounty hunter season or some form of content is released, giving us all the the bounty hunters back again. I’m curious to see how they’d add back Nien Nunb, but maybe they’d just give him with the release of the others? It’s interesting to note that the devs said Nien Nunb would not be the first hero to come back in the next season (if there are going to be heroes added for next season) but never stated he wouldn’t come back. Perhaps it’s just conversational and they didn’t mention that he wouldn’t be returning, but I hope the case is they discussed it like that because he would be returning but simply not this coming season.

    This example is just one of the ways I’d like to see or be pondering how some heroes that haven’t quite been confirmed to be in or out of the game.

    well in the originals, with WA, it was more thought out with the insides, felt definitely bigger, and each area in the path of the WA was made special so that's why I think it has more memorable areas vs the in GA there is a little bit the same through the whole ways when stopping the heavy vehicle, except Kashyyyk where the path is longer and there is more to see. I think the movies helped play a factor in that.

    I think this would be cool! I’d like to see a lot maps make returns and I know there’s some rumors out there that we’ll be seeing Scarif. But how easy would it be to get those maps into the game? Sullust, Bespin, Scarif, and even Vardos are fleshed out in the campaign. I hope to see them soon.

    He would also be a great addition as the heroes need some better heroes against villians and he has some cool abilities.

  • I would like to see Jabba's Palace and Sullust with Extraction. Nien Nunb of course as a Hero. Sabotage and the Carbon-freezing Chamber. Battle Station. (First Death Star).
    Almost forgot Fighter Squadron. :)
    And I like Walker Assault from SWB1 more, with activating the Uplinks. (But Rebels stealing the AT-AT at Endor is one of my favorite maps in SWB2.)

  • Porting the maps from SWBF 2015 would be very very cool. Maybe it's not so complicated to do it for Blast and Heroes vs Villains, since these modes don't use interaction.

    Nien Nunb and Dengar are perfectly dispensable IMO. We don't need more heroes from the original trilogy. Krennic and Erso would be cool.
