    Thanks EA, the release notes look a million dollars! Thanks.

    On the flip side, we can all recall a few things when patches are applied
    - fix one thing, another breaks! I wait to see if anything gets "broken" unintentionally (or intentionally?!)
    - the complainers who will complain about everything
    - hopefully nothing "breaks" !

    PS I don't understand half the things mentioned about melee and a 6m dodge immunity (6m!) and "stagger" and when striking blocking saber ... didn't even know they existed!

    I’m liking the Hero Balancing so far. Good start. Also good work for the dodge/stagger Adjustments as well. The lightsaber being looked at and adjusted slightly on top of that makes all that come together nicely.

    I look forward to seeing how everyone feels/reacts to experiencing the changes.

    I'm liking this patch overall. Too bad there aren't much new skins aside from Leia and Lando. But I guess that will happen in June. HvV will be interesting to play now with the dodge change will have to see how that feels like now.

    When we post, we have blue headers for our post and have our rank show up in them along with our tag. EA and studio staff appear in red. You will also see tags on threads on the board level for topics that we have commented on.

    Additionally if you keep clicking our "Moderator" or "SWBF Dev Team" tags, it will instantly take you to our posts in that thread. Click it again and it will take you to the next reply in that same thread and so on.

    Oh that makes sense. Thanks

    Hi guys,

    My first post on the forum, so thought id start with a positive. I love this game in particular HvV, and hope it gets the support it deservers.

    There are some interesting changes however I do have to disagree with some.

    The fundamental one is the change to the aerial attacks (also the trigger for me to finally post something). I don't see why this was needed or knew anyone complaining about it (granted not a lot of people knew). It gave lightsaber fights another option, users could break another light saber defence but at the risk of taking down their own defence from force powers and the like. I feel like this change has just further simplified lightsaber fights at a crucial time when the 2v2 mode is about to released. I have to admit that I don't understand this change, it may be a unintentional feature but a good one.

    I will have to try the rolling change until I can give proper judgment however I will voice my initial opinion/concern. In most cases I feel that the current roll is fine the only time I had issue with it is when multiple lightsaber users were ganging on one person. This is where the lightsaber stun had it's problems in my opinion. I worry with it being unstagerable at the beginning of the roll it will be far to easy to escape a lightsaber attack.

    My own proposal would be to keep it as currently (pre patch) with one exception under the lines of; after taking three consecutive lightsaber hits you become immune to saber stun for a short duration. Note that these saber hits can be from multiple users. By doing this you are not changing the gameplay against one saber user but when fighting multiple users it gives the player the chance to get away and make some plays.

    Just my thoughts however, I appreciate people may have differing opinions on the matter.

    Thank you Dice, for looking at ways of improving the game.

    I got so excited with the announcement of Geonosis. Thanks for telling us there will be a CW season, F8RGE. I am happy that they took some of my ideas for Luke, and I am glad the Leia got slightly nerfed. I was hoping that emote issues could be addressed in this patch, but hey, what can you do except continue to mention it. I am ready for this patch to go live tomorrow.

    Great start with the Hero tweaks, we'll have to see how Luke feels after these. Without playing as him, I'd say modify his Star Cards to make him more useful. The Increased Knockback for his Push could be changed to give extra damage to Heroes & Infantry (maybe up to + 50 damage?), his stamina reduction could be increased saber damage (up to +15-16?), that sort of thing. Also, I'd love to see Maul and Kylo get some Healing cards, as I'd easily take Maul's Frantic Strikes and turn it into a Heal-on-Kill/Use for his Saber/Spin/Choke. Kylo could also really use a minor buff to his Frenzy, it should do at least 100 damage per swing to infantry. Other than that, I'm pumped to use Phasma now, I've been waiting for a Staff change for a long time...
    ...A long time ; )
    Thank you guys, here's hoping!

  • I will be the first to admit the patch and update looks pretty decent. Interested to play the new Hero mode. But I have to ask, Did we not get the emotes bug fixed yet?? And will we finally be able to somehow get the other emotes we didnt get yet from crates?? Not much of a skins guy, I like the emotes more. Can you at least open them up for purchase with credits. I got tons of those. Thanks

    Nice update, but I really want to see new spawn screens and collection menu without holographic effect. Hope it will be better than "No holograms" mod (it's nice, but EOR screens are messed up)

    • Reduced the Defender Alt-fire damage from 175 to 145
    • Reduced Leia's Defender Alt-fire explosion radius from 2 to 1 meters
    • Reduced Leia's Defender Alt-fire targeting angle from 3.5 to 2 degrees

    For the Leia nerf complainers lol


    Looks like a good overall update, is this coming tomorrow?
    fi25cdmw1fwm.png
  • Glad Luke got buffed. It's typical Phasma's strikes got fixed and improved long after I put myself through the torture of that milestone :s

    Leia's Alt-fire needed nerfing badly so i'm keen to see what this change does. Aerial lighsaber attacks felt like a cheap glitch and was in need of fixing. Good work on that.

    There is still an issue with Kylo's frenzy not working properly. It locks on to thin air instead of your foe leaving you stood there motionless for a second and easy meat.

    No news on fixes and content for SFA? This is what i'm really waiting for DICE. Come on!

  • Looks good, but will see when I play it tomorrow.
    Like the buff to Luke, and the dodge stuff.
    Bit worried about SA in Arcade - could be just flying around in circles shooting robots and no objectives, which could get boring very quickly. but we'll see.
    Like Jabba's palace being added, was great in the last game.
    Would just love to see a new full GA map, hopefully that 'all come in the next one after the new Solo movies out.
    Overall, yeah cool - but eye's are already on the next one.
  • Good changes but seems strange there’s no boba improvements, guess they’re coming in June?
  • Are there more appearances coming with tomorrow's patch? Or only Leia and Lando appearances?

    Good question. I would also like it to be answered.

    Good to see the patch notes dropping before the patch and these look entirely sensible.

    Also VERY happy to see small changes being made and their impact monitored. Frequent small changes will be way more effective than swinging the pendulum to and fro.

    Kudos DICE - this looks good.

    Looks fantastic. Keep up the great work!

    Personally they only bug/fix that I'm interested in is the Hero emote glitch (can't use Iden's etc) but I assume you guys already know about this from discussions on these forums and are working on it.

    btw, think these notes forgot to mention the menu revamp (unless I overlooked this info)

    First I'd like to say that the level of details on the patch notes are great and help us understand the magnitudes of the changes.

    I'm excited to try out the changes. Looks very promising.
    Hopefully next part of season two will bring more content.

    No, he just accidentally let slip a Geonosis map. I was just taking it for confirmation that there would be a new season for it.

    Like having 2 separate damages is awesome! I hope to see that added:

    -In atmosphere starfighters do less damage to each other
    -NT-242 does less damage to specialist
