  • Looking very forward to this , Especially those 2 outfits , they will be nice !!!! Good job guys !!!
  • The new mode... Just give it some thought for a minute. This mode will be superior to 4v4 in all ways.

    It's better than nothing. Wish they would give a bigger new map though, as well as a new SA map.
    QOL improvements ... how about some fixes to MM? Those come sooner rather than later. At the minimum have teams with the same number of players on each side? That truly can't be too difficult to implement ...

    how large of an area will the 2v2 be? sorry if i missed this
  • Thanks for another disappointment DICE. I didn't even have expectations since I haven't played in months. Now I can see why I left. What a waste of the license. To the people who are satisfied with this very measly addition, raise your standards please so Star Wars can get a team that cares about the franchise
  • Being able to spend Skill Points to unlock or upgrade Star Cards between matches is terrific, but what about being able to spend Galactic Credits to purchase Appearances between matches?

    Players should also have the ability to customize Appearances, Emotes and Victory Poses at the spawn screen - i.e. having access to the same customization menus in the Collection menu after you're killed. Having access to all these options between deaths would be more efficient than trying to customize every trooper class and Hero you might want to use in the next match before it starts.

    Starfighter assault being added to arcade mode will hold me over until or if EA chooses player fanbase over profits and gives the community clone wars content in July or August either way EA is showing there true colors by not listening not the players wishes I'm happy with what I'm getting but as with everybody else on Twitter there up-in-arms @F8RGE and the other devs better control this otherwise it'll get real ugly that's all I'm gonna say but @F8RGE I thank you very much for giving us arcade mode players what we we've been asking months for @Sledgehammer70 the previous community manager tried to make it happen but EA wasn't budging and I respect him for trying his best but you sir finished what he tried to start so again I thank you look forward to the future for this game hopefully it'll be a bright one.

    Personally really hyped for this. The new skins look cool (though we do def need more, especially if EA hopes to make money off of them) and as someone who never played BF2015, I'm really excited to play Jabba's Palace.

    People need to realise that when this content releases next week, there'll only be two weeks left in May. In June we'll get the rest of the content drop with the new world (which will likely include a GA map), more legendary skins, and at least one new hero based on the Solo movie. Everyone criticising Season 2 really needs to include this content as well. As the announcement said, May is only half of the Solo content and it's a pretty good half imo.

    No Han Solo in his own season part 1. Just call it reuse season, also please give us emotes that work.

    Perhaps a better wording may have been - Here's the May update woohoo
    Next month we have the DLC - woohoo

    However as the DLC has been coming soon since January - You had to try and avoid another months delay, didn't you.

    Based on that, great to see so much content in just a Monthly update and I look forward to next months DLC as well

    This is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. The forums asks, "Where is Season 2? Where is Season 2?" Then they get under half of the patch notes, and they complain about what is not there. Well, stop and consider, maybe it is in the SECOND part of the season. From what I have heard, that is when most of the content will drop. Also, we got Ewok Hunt as a permanent mode, which many people wanted. Seriously. Stop complainig about what is not there until you know what IS there.

    Fy22aR38zVb-rNDveJvMtANOpstQoYsFf0y1NiI7irAOTq5YBjJ5nvVlBAA76m_wHtM5PvN4zGIq4IZQwu3pqMZZIgZb-pA5h323E3hFbYXZ10lCQUtPhB5F2OQkIXBLZZr72fsVJy-bKMJoVosNmVU=w384-h384-nc

    It's rather easy to detail the "rest of the season" without spoiling anything. Dice can do it; they do it with battlefield's dlc everytime. We wait 7 months to wait a week to wait another week to be told to wait another month for "content" and zero clue on the amount except it's the actual Solo content for which the season is about.

    The PC mod community has made more content and has had it since December 2017.

    People are allowed to be disappointed with things you know hence the word actually exists. We know Dice is good for dlc and this is all they can do? One remake map? Two skins? BF1 had more content drop in a little update just this Monday past.

    If people don't voice their issue with the current predicament then we are doomed to a fate worse than "pay2win Lootboxes".

    This is the prototype for EA's "live service" model and it's pure garbage. It's just to squeeze more money outta people whilst providing not even the bare minimum (case in point the recent reddit post and the skins/crystals dropping now not at launch). Ironic really. People cry about paying $15 for actual dlc content yet will pay $40 for a skin.

    You are right, we are wait DLC content SW: Clone Wars. Dice don't change models "officers" how in Battlefront 1-2 (2004-2005), only community save this situation about models and skins for Battlefront II 2017. Where different models for all classes? Where big maps with mode capture the flag (points)? Where arc trooper, droidteka, magnaguards? Where Geonossis, Utapau, Mustafar, Medgito, Felucia and more planets?

    I still waiting content in Star Wars Battlefront II (2017)

    sounds more like a regular update then part of a season. we haven't gotten any new heros since the last jedi. only been getting these limited time game modes here and there and recycled maps from bf1. only good thing to drop since the last jedi season was the progression update. you cant throw out a regular update and label it as a season when it gives no real content. also how can you call it a "han solo" season when nothing your adding has anything to do with solo??

    Great stuff! In fairness there is a LOT to be offered in the SOLO Season. AND Ewok Hunt will apparently be a permanent fixture under Blast? Great. I like the look of the new Holograms in the still images...wondering how that will work animated. Can't wait for all this on 16th and hey..... SOLO movie out on 25th! A lot of fun ahead....saving credits like crazy as the bugs in the May 4th weekend did not help me get many double points or credits. Yesterday had a lot of rubber-banding in the lobby for Strike. Anyone notice that? All good though... love this game :)

    Could, would and should - DICE is doing fine within all the restraints they have handed to them. Routine content forth coming and we're not paying a dime - unless we want to. Am quite pleased DICE continues to work on quality over quantity - bravo DICE...even if it takes longer and SOON and all that - so be it - everything in it's right time.
    Requests:
    1. maps - more of them all modes - we don't need 30 game modes - conquest, extraction, HvV, cargo (for Dash), Strike needs tweaked (and some need a timer), Blast, SA & GA - the rest can be pop-up novelties or private server keeps
    2. extraction - multiple maps on rotation
    3. weapons - more the better (balanced preferred but everything in time)
    4. heroes/villains - plenty to choose from - how about a bounty hunter pkg?
    5. doodads for weapons - scopes, etc.
    6. revamp specialist cards - sweet spot for snipers and CFE slight dmg buff recoil reducer combo (for Genx)
    7. see #6 and then do it again - maybe add 25 hp - see all the posts for making specialist - special
    8. cards - add some more, they're fun and there are some clunkers out there - sure DICE has data on this
    9. more rewards for ptfo'ing - less for kill streaks and farming kills
    10. spawns throughout the game are sketchy - worst HvV or Blast
    11. conquest - GA just doesn't have it for me - too much running w/out team spawn - 10 sec spawn timer need to go
    12. team balance - steam roll or get steam rolled - not many close matches
    13. lag on xbone - teleporting players, getting 0 credits after playing a round (went 21k-0assts-7deaths - 0 credits) - these blips need trimmed off and hemmed up - too good of a game to have these hangnails.
    Had to be 13 - keep up the good work DICE.

    The Han Solo Season:

    (1.) I am very greatful for the very cool Bounty Hunter skin and voice over for Leia. B)

    (2.) I am excited that “Ewok Hunt” is now permanent and I hope you will be expanding the mod to include other things to hunt (generalizing the name to simply: “Hunt Mode”). <3 https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/106738/ewok-hunt-rename-it-hunt-mode-and-expand-it-to-include-sand-people-jawas-wampas-gungans-etc#latest

    (3.) 2 on 2 HvsV sounds a little more personal; I suppose I’ll give it a go. Maybe I’ll finally get a good lightsaber fight. Though we do already have 1 on 1 HvsV Offline, it’s called “Duel”. :| But I’ll give it a shot.

    (4.) Finally! Thank you for “Jabba’s Palace” map... Now we can play it Offline, I shall treasure it. It was a very sweet gesture on your part. B) I am soooooo greatful that one by one the maps from the original 2015 game that was NEVER AVAILABLE OFFLINE BEFORE are now available. This is sooooo cool. You don’t know how bummed I was when I thought I’d never get to see those magnificent maps from the DLCs again.

    (5.) “Star-fighter Assault” Arcade Offline, COOL! Good show on your part.

    (6.) I love that we will be able to spend our in game level ups between matches.


    I won’t lie though I was hoping for more content on this outing. I reeeeeally want to eventually see...

    For Heroes and Villains:

    (1.) (good) young Anakin Skywalker and Darth Tyranus
    (2.) Old and Young Obi Wan Kenobi and General Grevious
    (3.) Mace Windu and Jango Fett
    (4.) Aayla Secura and Asajj Ventress
    (5.) Plo Koon and (bad) young Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker (in his hood)
    (6.) Ki Udi Mundi and Chancellor Palpatine

    For Class Specialist:
    (1.) Arch Troopers
    (2.) Destroyer Droids (Coming in the Clone Wars update yes?)
    (3.) Magna Guards
    (4.) Commandos

    For Planet Maps:
    (1.) Dagobah
    (2.) Geonosis
    (3.) Renvar
    (4.) Mustafar
    (5.) Coruscant
    (6.) Fulucia
    (7.) Mageeto
    (8.) Utapau

    For Non-Planets Maps
    (1.) Tantive IV
    (2.) Pollis Massa

    For Game Modes Offline and Online
    (1.) Conquest
    (2.) Cargo
    (3.) Extraction
    (4.) Sabotage

    Thanks again... :)

    This is so poor - feels like the nail in the coffin for this game. Are these seasons just going to be recycled content from BF1?

    It's probably too late but just do a season pass structure so the DLC can be fresh... it comes across as a lack of effort because of the loss of micro-transaction revenue.

    The new mode... Just give it some thought for a minute. This mode will be superior to 4v4 in all ways.

    How so? The current problem with randoms quitting and slow matchmaking times for replacing teammates that quit in HvV, and the current problem with people going afk/afc in HvV, will be even more debilitating in a 2v2 than they are in a 4v4. In an 2v2, if your teammate quits or goes afk/afc you're all alone fighting 2 people on the other team. At least it's possible to win a 3v4 in HvV, but winning a 1v2 is extremely difficult unless you're playing as an OP character like Vader. I'm a huge HvV fan (like 80% of my playtime is HvV), but I must say I have no interest in this new mode.
  • I'm gonna have to say I am very disappointed. We've waited a long time for content and this is as bad as Activision. They just spit in our faces. I love this game, really. It has great potential but EA and DICE don't seem to want the game to succeed.

    Wow. I really don't think this can be classified as a season. There is hardly anything noteworthy! Sure, those hero skins are new and sort of cool -- but the rest is just recycled from BF2 or small menial things. I really hope there is more to it when it actually launches ...

    Things like menu adjustments and updates or milestones are NOT content or DLC worthy. They are weekend patches and small improvements. Grouping them in with your DLC/Season announcement is so obviously just padding.

    Let's hope the second installment of season 2 has some more weight to it.

  • Oh my gosh yes man am I happy to be born in this century. Great battlefront 2 i'm happy that leia is getting a skin and Jabba! is gonna be playable that is amazing. I also like that ewok hunt is now gonna be a mode forever because me and my friends had are screams and funs what I mean by that is we had fun the entire time. But here's what I think you guys need to add is obi wan kenobi. Obi wan would be great to bring in because he's a original character in the outer rim season back in battlefront 1 you should of had obi wan and greedo. But you had nien numb instead and that was kinda dissappointing but the season was good. But that's all I ask and ea and dice keep on improving. :) ;)

    Really underwhelming news...I play SFA religiously with a group, and this season gives me nothing to look forward to. Hey EA/DICE/Criterion, we really need:

    1: New maps (plural)
    2: New ships (plural)
    3: Non-hero reinforcements (aka Tie Defender & B-Wing etc. Seriously, what’s the holdup!?) GA has non-hero reinforcements, and this would give players more to spend battlpoints on when they can’t catch a hero ship - not to mention more to grind on with the new progression system.
    4: A fix to being able to see/track squad mates easier (adjustable big green arrow on screen)
    5: Matchmaking balance fix, and a **** server browser for private matches between clans. Regular players hate when we steamroll together, and I don’t blame them - but we have nowhere to go!
    6: Level cap increase/4th card slot!!! Everything I have in SFA is maxed or nearly maxed - with no new SFA content in sight.
    7: Did I mention more maps and ships??? Because seriously, more maps and ships please. What’s the holdup? Star fighter Arcade is great for people trying to get a feel for things, but many of us just need more actual SFA content.

    Fun Fact: I cringe at seeing new skins being touted as significant content. I’ve been waiting on edge with anticipation for SFA news, and now I’m feeling disheartened by the fact that I have to wait for the next DLC season - which may or may not address any of these requests.

    Everything this guy said, I agree. Been asking for improved startfighter teammate visibility for months! SA has been completely neglected, and that's the best part of the game for many of us.

    Some of you need to stop blindly defending this lack of content. Even Starwars HQ has expressed the disappointment with this latest announcement and they have to be one of the most positive outside channels for this game. That being said, I think both sides have valid points b/c the arcade mode star fighter is an awesome announcement even if it's a few months late. But I did find the following link:(https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsBattlefront/comments/8i9xy8/the_current_state_of_the_game/)
    somewhat enlightening even if it SHOULD be taken with a grain of salt. It makes a lot of sense and supports the folks telling people to be happy with the minimal stuff b/c the DLC is free.

    This is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. The forums asks, "Where is Season 2? Where is Season 2?" Then they get under half of the patch notes, and they complain about what is not there. Well, stop and consider, maybe it is in the SECOND part of the season. From what I have heard, that is when most of the content will drop. Also, we got Ewok Hunt as a permanent mode, which many people wanted. Seriously. Stop complainig about what is not there until you know what IS there.

    Maybe they split it into 2 parts because they hoped the fanboy defense force would come to their aid and tell us all just how green the grass will be on the other side?

    If they manage to disappoint folks in waves, rather than all it once, it makes the torches and pitchforks seem less numerous, because part of the mob already got tired and left the scene. Less likely to top the charts for most unpopular post on reddit for the 2nd time.

    Call it the Scheherazade Defense. Keep stringing us along until the community dies of boredom, until they can justify dropping "support" for this game due to "lack of interest" (big quotes).

    It's what I have been doing for 22 years. I perfectly well know what you get when you have a 100 person project team. What they are producing is NOTHING CLOSE to what a 100 person project team could produce.

    IF I felt that there was any leeway to be given, I would. The closest I have is to say that content could be ruled by Disney and they could 100% be at fault for the **** content to date.

    I have to say that I am bitterly disappointed with the upcoming season. I can’t help but feel let down as a loyal player to both this and BF15. The poor quantity of game modes and pitiful amount of new content is shocking, I had such high hopes for this game but am left with disappointment.
    Such a shame a wasted opportunity.
