    I think I’m gonna play a little dropzone tonight and maybe a few matches of cargo myself.

    Ever since jet pack cargo was release I’ve been thinking when will we get old regular cargo back. Cargo really added something new to the game and more variety which is why I think it would be a good fit. EA hopefully do not put jet pack cargo but instead regular cargo. It’s basically capture the flag and who dosent like a good game of capture the flag.

    @StarWars0525 really wants original cargo too!

    Welcome friend.

  • I wonder if there's a chance that we'll get it in the second part of Season 2?

    Heard that Extraction on Bespin and Jabba's Palace was recently found buried in the game's code (Yes!)

    Cargo has to come back... will come back.

    I’m just curious as to why we only get one map with dlc modes, why no 4-6 map rotation. I want Cargo and dropzone, not a one map Cargo and dropzone. I really hope extraction is more than one map.

    We’re getting quick throwaway modes because this is the result of the MTX failure. It’s the least they can do to save a little face and pretend this game is still a live service. They take bare minimum effort and time, which is the driving force behind everything they’ve done post launch.

    Well, then they shouldn’t really have a problem bringing us original cargo if this is how it really is...

  • Add Extraction and Cargo without Enforcers and toss them in a playlist with Strike and Blast.

    I know I’ll catch some hate for that suggestion, but I don’t want to risk a playebase split. I would main that playlist all day every day.

    No hate here. If this is all we could get, then I'd definitely be down for it. I'd just memorize the rotation and be sure to sort into the point that maximized my Cargo exposure.

    I'm still going to hold out my slim hope of real, proper, legit, no reinforcement, BF2015 Cargo though. (and for reference that slim hope currently sits at the emotional equivalent of .0000000000000001% the thickness of a single sheet of legal paper)
    Yes, play! Yes, a gamer's strength flows from adjustment. But beware of the nerf side...not adapting your tactics, stubbornness, wanting the game catered to you; the nerf side of gaming are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a death & respawn. If once you start down the nerf path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did many an apprentice.

    I would like to know how many here now actually played bf15 or played at all. Seems like many haven’t, especially Cargo/dropzone/extraction. I also see people making reference about how easy bf15 was and the modes, but when I look people up many/most have like a .7 kd and 35-100 hours played lol.

    I enjoy Strike, loved Extraction and Cargo and Blast is a nice mode to just shut off for a while and try out new load outs. I'm all over that playlist.

    I played BF15 for many hours, and most of these hours (especially after the game was out for a while) were only spent on cargo and DZ. Also sometimes, I would just click to find a small mode, and it would most often go to one of those two modes.

    We need it back!

    All the maps in battlefront 2015 would make great additions to the game but these above I would take first then the others especially twilight on Hoth. Also can we get Cargo back?

    @StarWars0525

    From another thread... just another supporter of cargo.

    Gazoan Badlands (sp?) was my favorite map or the Tattoine spaceport one with the millennium falcon in the middle of the crater.

    Yeah!!! I like how you guys are quoting everyone who wants cargo because it does give cargo a lot of support. Keep up the good work.

    1464 hours played on BF2015
    7791 matches played...4880 of which were Cargo

    As for K/D...I don't feel that's an accurate depiction of a person's skill. For example my online stats show a 2.33. If you chop off my first few hundred hours of play (when it was .45/1 before I gotgud), it jumps to around 3.6 (used to keep the specifics on a notepad that to track my improvement every 10k kills). I never thought the game was easy, but there were times that the matches were.

    I'm slowly losing my interest in this game. Cargo would go a long way in bringing me back. I've been playing dark souls and Detroit become human the last week. Still putting the finishing touches on my run with God of War so little time for battelfront. But if cargo was in it....I might reconsider my priorities. I assume there are others like me, on the sidelines but still ready to step back in for the right situation.

    Instead of adding private matches they will add some more reused bf2015 maps and a few temp game modes that nobody asked for. The biggest reason this game failed is because they took what worked well from bf2015 and totally trashed it. Private matches, WA, supremacy, drop zone, cargo, partners, a normal progression system, stats all were left out for no reason. Game became a casual repetitive hollow shell.

    Miss that cargo!!

    Looks like they are bringing back Jetpack Cargo at some point... they added a timer and changed how you pick the weapons. Another map as well. Beyond that, there is nothing really new.

    Still only one cargo to get randomly on the map, which makes it more like a much less exciting Dropzone instead of capture the flag/regular cargo.

    Still expecting rocket launcher spam... at least get rid of those please and add another cargo, so there is more strategic offense and defense.

    Sigh

    At least they gave us extraction. I hope they didn’t mess it up! Now we just need original cargo, how do we get more support for original cargo?

    @d0kRX Yep, same here.

    @EmmaFett10304, looks like you were right my friend, no mention of cargo/dropzone, stats, or private matches. Worse yet is other than a few threads here and there no one else seems to be asking for it, or not enough to get their attention anyway. Skins and heroes still seem to be the priority for this PB.

    Who ever came up with JP cargo over classic cargo should be reprimanded lol, jk, and hunt over dropzone is a kinda a head scratcher. I do look forward to extraction though as long as it isn’t another hero dominated mode. Hopefully e3 will give a something to look forward to as far as the above modes.

    That I could figure out. But still, I presume they DO want the game to have replay value and a long life? Then to me it seems only logical that they would put that effort in and add the most requested game modes.

    Whoa...whoa...whoa....

    Never presume that they use logic, at least in it's pure form, on adding things to this game. Vulcans they are not. They're more Romulan, utilizing logic that is twisted from their emotions...becoming a truth they cling to that depends greatly on their point of view.

  • Cargo was my favorite game mode and I even played yesterday and I’m about to now. However, I don’t see it prospering in BF2 because of lack of guns, (EE-3), and lack of real customization. There’s only specific cards for specific classes. Classes wouldn’t be compatible in Cargo from BF2015

    That’s my thinking with dropzone as well, 15 feels like more time was put into infantry gameplay mechanics and weapons thus creating a wider skill gap.

    JP cargo was an abomination. I still shudder to think all the wasted hours grinding out the Leia skin by having to finish 5 JP matches. Rocket spam was hilarious at first but quickly became abusive. I should have waited a bit until everyone figured out it was best to throw the match and help the other side win in order to complete the challenge quickly. I think my last two games (of 5 I never opened the mode again once I got the challenge done) were shorter because everyone was doing that.

    Wish old cargo was in its place.

    So on outpost delta I’d put one base in beta ( if I remember correctly beta is the small enclosed space with two windows on strike and off to the left if you’re imperials )

    Then for the other base I’d put it where the imperials spawn.

    Solid idea. Although I think a mix of Strike, Blast, HvV maps would be better as the options. Some Strike maps aren't very Real Cargo friendly, and some HvV & Blast are...so why limit the ideas?

    Takodana - rework the Strike map slightly to take out Maz's Castle. Have 1 base at the Firespray 31 & the other at the First Order transport. Part of me would want to put the Falcon in play, but using it as a base limits the tree cover.
    Kamino - Use HvV map. Have the bases in the respective domed rooms, or have them on the opposite landing platforms.
    Naboo - Strike map. Make the LAATs the bases.
    Mos Eisley - behind the Cantina & behind the Junk Yard, or the points used for delivery on that abomination JPC.
    Jabba's Palace - at the opposite ends, roughly the Hero & Villain spawn points.

    That's all I've got off the top of my head...

    I think most of the Strike maps could work for cargo easily... the Cargo maps in BF15 basically just stuck the cargo bases on opposite sides of the map, and the same could easily be done in BF2. Some Cargo maps were symmetrical/round/square while others were basically long rectangles, but they all just had the cargo zones on opposite sides

    I suspect we're all for using those as well, but there are only 5. I'd personally like those ported over and then give us 5-7 created from BF2 maps.

    I agree, it would be better to have custom cargo maps and the BF15 maps would be great! Just saying that Strike maps could potentially work since we’re lacking in the content department.

    These are pretty solid spots it sounds like. For kamino I like the different landing pads idea, and for Naboo I wonder if those two laat ships are a little too close. One thing that could be done for naboo is make the map just slightly thinner and longer. Enough so that where the droids spawn there’s where their base would be, and there’s multiple entrances to that area, and then for the republic their base would be opposite end of the map, not where the beta gunship is but in between that point and where the clones spawn.

    Yeah I would agree that it’d be nice to get goazon badlands, rebel depot, or endor maps from bf2015.

    The endor maps for hero’s vs villains would probably be the best one for endor cargo on this game, but I am not sure where the bases would fit in on that one.

    I would be really annoyed if they added Ewok Hunt to Strike. I think that mode is pretty terrible and would resent them trying to force Strike players to play it. Jet Pack Cargo would also be pretty annoying. I wish they would ditch that gimmick mode and bring back real Cargo.

    Yes, @FourStringBass4 agrees with getting original cargo!
