  • What makes me laugh is that there were people around here who still had the courage to say he was fine...

    Great comment. It's only after they remove him that people can begin to admit the truth.

    After they sent the Emperor on “Paid Vacation” I happened to be there to record what transpired. He ended up being escorted off the Death Star on a shuttle to who knows where. :neutral: The following is disturbing footage:

  • Literally spent the last few hours talking with "customer support" to fix this glitch where Palpatine disappeared, as they suggested clearing my MAC address and for me to post a question to the forums for someone else to fix it, only to find out after looking at this post that it's not a glitch at all but had been completely planned ahead of time. Good job with knowing nothing whatsoever about the game you're "helping" people with.

  • So idk if anyone else has brought this up in this forum post because I don't have the time to read everyone's posts right now but can we please make sure the Debs know about the glitch with the battle points multiplier not working.
  • I think they removed the 2x from the Battle Point System.

    It will still say 2x on screen but it's only 1x.

    The Battle Point System should never have had a 2x multiplier to begin with, but that's my own opinion. ;)

    I have no idea if this is permanent or they're testing the waters to see what happens.

    Don't lump us in with what's happening here, I genuinely could do a better job a bug fixing than these guys who I quote "don't know where to look and it's to hard to find let alone fix", now since all the original devs are no longer working on this game, any new people won't have a clue

    By 'original' dev do you mean older, wiser, experienced? I bet Rockstars got NO millenniums. For the record it's just a wide known fact it the laziest generation yet, lol. I'll take a generation X'er to make my video games anyday over some kids. Guess what Naughty Dog Uncharted series, NO bugs and NO kids either.


    I feel that you are just wanting to have a rant about millennials more than you want to fix the game :P Your "feeling" might be wrong (a company like DICE will most likely have many people from all different groups), so why are you basing an entire argument on that...? Somehow, ranting about an entire generation (who arent lazy btw) because of a small issue with a game (its just one character...) seems like an overreaction to me ;)

    Still ~2 min heroes, so not sure why they even removed it. Now less competition for heroes its glorious
  • Yep, certain builds will still be able to get a Hero/Villain quickly.

    That will probably never change. It's the way the game is designed.

    [*] Hardlock stutter in Hero Starfighters – Plan to be fixed in the hotfix.

    Thank you but there is something else next to hardlock! Its a really old bug still in game, wrote a few bug reports yet its still in the game so pls take a good look in my recent gameplay video at 1:46 min

    Hardlock Bug 1:17 Can be seen but Since u said u gonna fix it i am really happy with that!

    And the worst bug within SA is:

    Exploding "dragging"bug 1:46 - IF something explodes close to any starcrafts its has a big chance to randomly change your direction. I had luck here but pls take a good look!

    Well, now HvsV mode is TOTALLY BROKEN, as matchmaking has troubles with players and every one or two rounds servers are desconnecting and kicking everyone OUT.

    What a mess.

    Please listen to the community F8RGE and DICE. Please!

    Don't "fix" Palpatine and don't "adjust" the saber user stamina system. This is not what we want. This is not the right move.

    Revert Palpatine to his build at the release of Solo season part 1. This is before you attempted to "fix' the ATAT bug that spiraled into the situation we have now. The ATAT bug is completely fine to live with for now.

    Revert saber users to the build that was prior to to Solo season part 1, in which they could break through a block with an air strike. This was great. The issue you are trying to resolve was not an issue until you made this change.

    Again, don't fix or tinker, just revert.

    ^^ This please and thank you.

    Your well explained and logical arguement just tells me that you don't know much about the game and how severely broken he is right now. Me and the rest of the "enthusiastic" part of the community have spend the last three days gathering feedback, providing solutions and had serious, objective discussion about the mess the last patch caused. Right now, there seem to be players working harder on this game than their "QA" Team.

    But yeah, we are cry babies.

    The fact is that all the whining for "nerfs" or "fixes" over the past couple of months has been a large influence in the devs opening up shop on editing everything and then when they edit things everyone cries out foul even louder. Perhaps before asking for a nerf so quickly and casually think twice about the repercussions of that line of thinking and threadmaking because that is precisely the reason for all these "gamebreaking" updates which seem to break more things with each patch than they resolve. Their is wisdom in realizing beforehand that perhaps things are relatively fine as they are now and it's not worth potentially messing up several things just to nitpick with one small element of the game, which has ended up being the case.

    Palpatine was fine before the patch and frankly after the patch was also fine in HvV as I was getting the same scores after the patch as before the patch so hardly noticed much of a significant difference tbh (I can't speak for GA since I don't play that mode).

    Oh trust me at my job I work with them too, and btw everyone under their breath says they are lazy, the only ones that don't seem to see it are other millenniums. They think the world owes them something. But, funny they never seem to last that long... Plus, there have been numerous times that I've read comments on how lazy Dice/EA are. So, I guess my conclusion is 2+2 still = 4? But, you are right this is a different argument... I was just telling my wife about the state of the bugs in the game, and this whole opinion was hers. I have to agree it may be true, how old Dennis?

    why does everyone want palpy to be a wussy? he is supposed to be very powerful only ones who should be able to match his power are yoda and vader and soon to be anakin. heroes should be tiered at their different levels of power anyways. not every hero or villain should be equal this isnt the declaration of independence lol

    Are you out of your mind?

    First, this is a game, so it's mandatory that a certain balance between ALL of the characters exists.

    Second, what you're saying doesn't even make sense canonically speaking. I mean, Palpatine didn't win ONE fight. He lost to Windu, he lost to Vader, he was about to lose to Yoda, he couldn't kill Luke.

    If anything, he should have an ability called "sweet talk", to get people to join his team, because that's what he's good at.

    He didnt lose to windu. That was a ploy to get anakin to goto the darkside.

    This is true. Also, I think the Devs feel differently.

  • I think this was a great decision and my impression from the initial post is that Palpatine will be back eventually, but only after he is fixed.

    However, while playing GA tonight, several participants in one of the matches I was in claimed that developers had stated that they were debating whether or not to PERMANENTLY remove Palpatine from the game... is this true?

    Again, my impression from the initial post was just that this is temporary until he is fixed....

    Emperor Palpatine – We plan to execute our Kill Switch (KS) for him. This means he will be removed from the game. He will be disabled until a hotfix can be deployed. We don’t take this decision lightly, but we feel it is in the best interest for everyone until a fix can be deployed.

    Oh he lost to Mace alright in one-on-one saber combat no denying that. Now did he throw his hands up on purpose after that acting all helpless yes but mace still had the upperhand on him and was blocking his lightning all throughout.

    i dont think they could permanently remove him without some kind of balancing issue (uneven number of villans vs heroes?). also i dont know why they would want to get rid of him permanently unless he is unfixable which seems unlikely. they could always just revert back to how he was when not completely bugged.

    He was buying time for anakin to arrive. He had that second saber up his sleeve. He had it timed perfectly so that anakin would see windu about to strike him down.

    Look at him taking on savage and maul at the same time in the clone wars.

    I'm sorry but there was no proof he had a second saber up his sleeve he just had the one saber based of film canon I don't look at clone wars animated series to judge the episode 3 film I look at it when it was released. Whether or not he was buying time for Anakin to arrive is a separate discussion and is possibly true to a certain extent but to act like he got the saber kicked out of his hands on purpose and that he wasn't trying to kill Windu is laughable to say. He was trying to kill Mace the same as he did the other jedi he just underestimated Mace in saber combat, simple as that.
    Arguing further on this point is moot as I guess it's just a matter of interpretation to a large degree I just know that he got bested by Mace in one-on-one saber combat and was disarmed legitimately.

    I would like to report that your matchmaking has been absolutely atrocious since the patch. I’ve lost count of how many empty lobbies I’ve encountered, but the worst thing is that I’m getting kicked out of my lobby after the completion of a map on both sides. It’s like I pressed the matchmaking button (I didn’t, not sure if it even exists anymore), and I’m always expelled from my lobby into an empty or near empty one. Please fix this as soon as possible, the game is literally unplayable right now.

    To be fair he beat yoda. Vader sucker punched him and he was going to kill Luke.
    Vader even said he wasn't strong enough to kill palps and yoda admitted defeat and went into hiding.
  • But is he still playable in Arcade - please say he is
  • Too bad they didn't use the Kill Switch on him during beta phase.

    Good riddance. He should have a lightsaber. So many bugs involving his abilities.

    Leave all of his abilities as is and give him a lightsaber already. :p

    Yes let's get rid of anyone with a unique ability and just give them a lightsaber? Should bossk get one too?

    I really don't understand where do you want to go with this game, make us all disappointed so we all leave it or you just don't want to work?
    This is a shame for an industry like EA, since the beginning you completely abandoned the development of this game. My last time I personally buy a game from EA.

    I will never another EA game unless it is Star Wars but even then I will not buy blindly and unless they show they can get this game right all bets are off.

    It's still an awesome game I just feel like the fixes it needs are so simple but when they do them they overdo it and make it worse.
