What did you use the Double XP on ?

Spent only a few hours playing unfortunately, and played HvV mainly to gather up the skill point for my more limited characters.
I did try for hero ship xp but for some reason all the matches were too short and by the time i had gotten the points to get one it was over, so i figured it was more biased to GA or HvV.

Maxed out some serious cards, just wish i could have spent a little more time getting the remainder updated rather than working.

Did you think it was worth it?
Did you gain them wisely?
How did you do on SA if at all?

    After getting the Timed challenges done in Ewok Hunt, it was nothing but SA for me. I wasn't even planning on playing as much as I did during the weekend, but I wanted to get Tallie and Iden up to 25 from around 18 or 19.
    I had some good games and some bad ones, but it was definitely worth it.
    They're not going to, but Dice should do Double XP at least once a month.
    She's so fine, there's no telling where the money went.

    I do honestly think it should be each weekend to help with SFA primarily.

    Lol same as me. Very close to getting the plat trophy on PS4 for it so devoted my time to that. Completely forgot about double XP and only logged in for an hour Sunday night before realizing. So I may have leveled up one of my classes....once? If that.

    Plus its been boiling in North East England so I was working on my tan

    Problem as i stated in SFA was grinding to get the hero ship, then finding the match over rather quickly. Thats why i did the HvV element, more reward without the grind.
    Some thing needs to be done to allow the hero ships to benefit next time. (No idea what though).

    Agree need to be more often.
    Every holiday, well this weekend was one in the UK so disappointing it didn't last the Monday too, but then catering for it like that would be never ending, so i think every month or so.

  • Ranking Troopers. Played a lot more HVV than usual as well. Still don’t know if I’ll ever realistically be able to get all heroes and star fighters fully purpled and to their max rank. Double XP definitely helps.

    Actually forgot to thank the team for doing it, it made a big difference.

    It was interesting trying to level up characters not generally used, other players obviously didn't get it and used their maxed out ones i game (wast of points).
    Though we had some really intense matches.
    I maxed to epic all cards at least level 36 - 40 most of them, just got to learn to play with them all now.

    Fully leveled up my Armor vehicle, Speeder, Enforcer, and Aerial classes cause i dislike how long it takes to level them up. I also did a bit of my Heavy and Assault class but i already had my trooper classes close to max.

    I wanted to work on SA but didn't know about the double XP weekend until Saturday. There was a lovely splash screen that probably explained it, and I would've loved more time to look at it, but it spontaneously disappeared without me hitting any buttons.

    Since I only had a day and a half, I worked on HvV. I managed to purple the main ones I was working on. My original plan was to get Boba, Vader, and Luke up to 25. I got Boba and Vader, but Luke kept being taken, and I discovered I could level much faster with Rey anyway, so I got her up to 25 instead, and managed to get Luke up to like 23. I got Kylo up to 21, even though I wasn't particularly trying to (I do fine w/ him usually and know it'll happen on its own). Whenever I couldn't get any of the people I wanted, I worked on Darth Maul or Yoda! LOL :p

    ....but then I got my first MVP with Yoda, and then it wasn't quite so funny anymore! :D

    In the end, he got up to around 21 and Maul up to 18. I like Maul ok (in this game), but with the saber throw broken I've kinda been avoiding him.

    Boba was the only blaster hero I worked on.....cos c'mon, it's Boba Fett! (Great, now I have "Fett's Vette" stuck in my head! LOL). I was happy to finally purple him, cos I've been pretty horrible with him so far.

    Hopefully they do another weekend sometime soon, so I can level up some blaster heroes!

    The best thing about the Double XP weekend was that for once, I could actually see/feel myself improving, especially with Boba. I'm used to shooters where I'm constantly hitting/holding the left trigger to ADS/aim, so the left trigger being his jetpack really messes with my head.....especially since that's not even how regular rocket jumpers work.....but I'm finally starting to get the hang of it.

    Maybe I'll get his Rocket Barrage milestone before I'm 80 years old....... Maybe.

    Oh yeah, I broke down and forced myself to play the Emperor for the first time ever, and managed to get him up to level 10 (up from like 8 or 9, cos "cards"), with a few rounds played (when everybody else but blasters were taken) which is fine by me. LOL

    I played a bit of HvV (and actually found a few good balanced matches), but mostly played GA to level up Specialist and Officer to at least 35. I've mostly been using Assault and Heavy, but it was kind of fun switching it up and using other classes. I've never been real good at shooter games, but I'm finally seeing some improvement.

    Didn't have as much time to play as I'd hoped. After getting the Leia challenges completed I worked on Hero ships - got Han, Rey, Boba, Vader, & Iden to 25.

    8 down, 3 to go (Tallie - 24.5, Yoda & Luke - 22)
    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.

    Interestingly i thought for some reason most of the people would already be quite high up on the epic side of things, guess that wasn't the case, it was a good opportunity for us all to level up and hopefully allowed new players to do so and give them some encouragement.

    Also i noted that one or 2 people said it allowed them to see an improvement in game play, i agree it did for me as well.

    Moderators if you read this thread, any chance of it again at some point, maybe even just for the anniversaries of the films/ or after each new season has settled down. (Announce it in plenty of time though i will book time off work and stock up on garbage snacks n drinks, (or snacks and beer).

    It was a good idea, and i for one appreciated it after grinding my credits in the beginning and spending them needlessly on unlocking heroes. It actually felt i had achieved something this weekend, and it allowed me to realize the potential of other characters (Han Finn very underrated), I will use them more often now (need to as am a pedant and need to max them up fully on all cards now i have started.

    Definitely need to sort out an easier method for SA though grind to get hero then upgrade is longer than HvV or troopers.

    I found that getting Tallie, Iden, and Luke leveled up took forever. The double XP helped with Tallie and Iden.
    I think it'll take me a long time to level up Yoda.

    Levelled up each of my classes except Assault about 4-5 times, got some xp for a couple of heroes too. Couldn't come on as much as a normal weekend unfortunately, only got some game time in on Sunday.

    Yeah, I played HvV for basically the first time. Got my Han up to 25 so I could finally use crafting parts. I think a lot of people were doing that because every match had weird combinations. No Vader or Rey. Lol

    Hahahahahaha yes! It was so surreal seeing dark side teams with no Vader! I was already like level 21 with him, so I got him to 25 first, and never saw him again that day. ;)

  • No SFA, just finleey
    I no longer use this account or anything Battlefront related as of 08/07/2018.
  • Hans Falcon and Iden from 18+ to 25. Only Rey's Falcon left but no rush.
  • I spent most of the time on HvV, started with 2 villains and 1 hero in epic range, by the end I now have 4 epic villains and 3 epic heroes. All in all pretty great progression for one weekend in m my book.

    I just wish I could do a bit better with Han, I try to play him sometimes, and I know he can be really good as I see players owing HvV with him sometimes but I can't do jack as him or Leia. As weak as everyone says Luke is I do twice as well when using him as either of them for some reason, I guess my play style doesn't match them very well.
