No Arcade Appearance Switching

Very disappointed to learn that while the fantastic feature to change appewrances between spawns has been added to the online portion of the game, Arcade did not get the appearance changing feature. This is wholly disappointing and something that needs to be added immediately. I don't usually call for changes, but this has to be rectified immediately.

    IKR? How hard it would it be for them to include this feature in Arcade; it uses the same UI as Galactic Assault!

    They want to introduce this as new content for arcade after 4 months. Same as with maps. (Hoth, endor, kashyyyk, crait, jakku, death star 2)
  • I too was disappointed to see no change in arcade! Hope they add the ability to change appearances in-game for arcade soon!

    How about sabers on/off?
    Is that missing from arcade too?
  • does it matter the appearance system in this game is sub par compared with BF1 anyway.

    How is it sub par? You could only change appearances in the other pre match, in this you can switch whenever you want to.

    That's in Arcade.
    I am the same user as Elimelech401, that account was not tied to the game. I am hoping for more Skirmish with split screen and hero AI.

    This is needed for both players in Arcade split screen.

    How?
    Only certain heroes has them on only certain maps.

    Troopers had to be incredibly high levels to be anything but human.

    Other than online game modes the first game is worse in every way.

    Well BF2015 had lots of Imperial appearance options [Navy Troopers, Pauldron color options, Shadow Scouts, Shocktroopers, etc.] (currently we only have a handful of Officer heads) plus we could choose our gender. We could play as female Stormtrooper or Officer or male Scouttrooper. Right now we have gender locks for all classes. Wish they would finally add more Imperial skins and the option to choose gender.

    But back to the actual topic:

    I agree with OP that they need to add the in-match skin selector to arcade too. I was suprised they didn't add it when they added it for MP. I don't like that you always have to leave arcade menu and return to the game's menu just to switch a simple skin. It's a bit time consuming and difficult right now. Plus you can't change your skin mid match if you feel like wanting to try out a different skin for a change.


    Skin selector in arcade matches would be really welcomed.

    Remember guys, the last game also had no classes and was basically Call of Duty in it's customization of loadout and appearance. When the entire game's mechanics and content are reworked to match something drastically different from the last one, things are certainly not going to be how everyone remembered it.

    They could still add all Imperial customization options and male/female options to most classes nontheless. There's no reason not to add different pauldron colors for the empire heavy for example (currently only orange available, but shoudln't be an issue to add grey or black pauldron options) or add a shadow scout skin for specialist or shocktrooper skin for the heavy. Male & female options for all stormtroopers shouldn't be an issue either, as the model is only slightly different (only big difference would be the voice). The current customization options/system and class system doesn't prevent certain skin options or at least it shouldn't.
  • They need to do this. It's shameful that it hasn't been done.

    You have my vote.
  • Arcade needs a pre match skin selector for both players in split screen.
    I am the same user as Elimelech401, that account was not tied to the game. I am hoping for more Skirmish with split screen and hero AI.
  • Hopefully, next patch will add this for both players in split screen.
