    I've been playing loads of cargo and occasionally Bespin and outer rim. They keep ignoring us because they want to rebrand battlefront as herofront.

    As Relmets stated, 2 is overwatch lite, and to add, with no league play, bad balance, and bad matchmaking. We need 2 games imo, one should be listed as Battlefront Heroes Unleashed, basically this game, and the other as Battlefront trooper edition. Make the trooper version like all other modern shooters but keep 3rd person, basically what 15 was. Have all stats, map selection, private matches, great competitive small modes, make it infantry based with gunplay being a top priority, and imo add a league or tournament mode. Both camps happy.
  • i havent played in months but just want to contribute to the message of this thread. Cargo4Lyfe. This mode is lit there i no other substitute. Focus on Cargo EA you must.
  • Anyone else not use a Jumppack on Cargo so you could have another Grenade or Shield or Weapon?

    Multiple games would absolutely have been better from the get-go. By banking all of that resurgent Star Wars hype on a single title they inevitably had to appease the generic "heroes/sabers-r-starwars" crowd. To be fair you can't really expect anything else given that it was the only major SW game until JFO.

    Extraction's Thread's still going strong, time to bring some more attention to Cargo.

    I loved the feel of Imperial Station, and most Endor maps in general. Brings me back to vacations in the mountains, that's nice.

  • Cargo, dropzone, droid run, WA/Supremacy, private matches, map selection, the bf15 play mechanics, and most of all the 15 gunplay, it all needs to be brought back for the guys that actually like shooters.

    They ported extraction, ewok hunt's map from the first game, they even ported assets directly from cargo to make Jetpack Cargo

    Why can't we just get Cargo? Most of the strike maps would fit easily especially since most of them revolve around CTF

    I know, it's so sad, and each of the main base classes would be great for either running with the cargo or defending the home base. Such a shame.

    @JMaster @ROMG4 - If you're on PS4, then you're welcome to squad up with @d0kRX & me sometime.

    PS4 generally still has at least a half dozen different lobbies going most of the time during the day, and more in the evenings/weekends. There are a handful of modders, squads, &/or super sweaty bactaguards that we run across regularly, but we can generally lobby hop to get away from the recognizable names.
  • I love how long this thread has lasted 😂

    Not sure how much hope we have of seeing it in BF2 but if this thread has helped sway any kind of decision for BF3 if it exists that’d be pretty sweet.
  • Cargo is the only mode from BF15 that's still populated for me. It's an all-time great format.
    Jetpack Cargo was amazing, especially on Bespin.

    That buff Rey thread is giving me a headache, how's about some good suggestions?

    Do you guys think they'll get cargo or drop zone if they do a bf3? I don't think they will do a bf3...

    They want to cater to hero players and the clone wars. They don't give a poop about anything else.

    Should be both. Throw Droid Run in there too, that mode was underrated.

    For any of you who loved drop zone and want to have fun in the last game:

    Also I want cargo back. I know it won't happen but I'll keep posting here.

    Dunno, sometimes mixing things up really pays off and sometimes it doesn’t, and I really feel like Strike was a bold attempt at a refresh that just didn’t come near the fun and simplicity of Cargo.

    Cargo was a boxing match between your small team and theirs, it felt personal.
  • Droid Run was also very enjoyable although some matches were very short...!

    Cargo (2 flag Capture the Flag) is still as fun as the first day I played it. It needs to be immortalized Offline against bots and with a couch friend in splitscreen. Just like so many great CTF video game modes of the past.

    Tried asking many of the bf2 claimed alpha players to play and usually get the same answer, or no answer, can’t imagine why they won’t play in a tournament with other top guys.

    Haha are they scared of Alphafunatic, Crickenthechicke (now just cricken--), goodpoo (now called gpooy), and a few other og players like symphonic (now glamboy) or coloses7? Idk but I just think it would be a lot more fun with those alpha players you were talking about.

    Guess they don't really love the old game, cuz there's a chance right now for some real fun, and it's free, and there's a chance for some big prize money.

    JPC is still sort of a thing...it's there in the files, but not currently an active game mode.

    Man that was so disappointing. Here’s the return of your favorite game mode but it’s only one map and you can all only use the same terrible class 😬

    Indeed...we're going to tease you with Cargo in the name, but remove all the good aspects while amplifying the bad.

    Actually I believe it was 3 JPC maps. Bespin, Tatooine and Yavin 4 before DICE realized JPC was a horrible idea.

    My god, I just realized that Jetpack Cargo and Ewok Hunt collectively got more than DOUBLE what Extraction got.
    We really do live in a society.

  • Cargo is still just as fun on 2015's SWBF game as from the first day it came out.

    @F8RGE Please DICE bring Cargo to Offline Arcade and Online, thank you.

    I mean one cargo per map, instead of one on each side. I wasn't very clear in how I wrote it

  • C'mon guys, this can't be super-difficult. Some of us would gladly play Cargo again, DICE PLZ
