    didn't extraction in bf2015 have heroes?

    yes but until a patch came and ruined it only certain heroes were allowed due to balance.

    Yeah and that's what ruined the mode, hence why it's amazing in BFII.

    It was fine when only certain heroes were selectable but that got ruined in a a patch, I'd love for heroes to be in this version but it simply wouldn't be balanced.

    2017 extraction is boring.

    Extraction is about attacking or defending the cargo which is what makes it already fun as it requires teamwork, tactics, and skill in battle using infantry - and it results in amazing battles that stretch across one end of a map to the orher. Heroes were simply spam that spoiled the mode as their powers and ridiculous advantages that require no skill to use made the mode pointless. Fortunately BFII Extraction is superior, being the reason that it's actually so much more fun. Just needs way more maps badly.

    Heroes in Battlefront games are simply a bonus feature that should only belong in large modes and hero-focused modes. Fortunately that's the case for BFII. Couldn't be happier that Extraction has no heroes.

    Totally agree and wonder how much fun a redone Sabotage mode would be without heroes as well. Sabotage stopped being fun when the hero experts camped the hero token spawn locations and then went on killing sprees that brought the match to a halt. Infiltration mode on Scarif was lasting fun and got hero + trooper right because it was one hero (that wasn't ridiculously OP) with more than one objective to protect, and only during one stage of the match.

    Love BF2 Extraction and begging for more maps!

    The fun thing about maps for small game modes is there are tons of options already available from 2015, campaign and other game modes - the options grow quickly. Flapjack face back on Sullust does sound fun though. Hoth through the corridors would be fun as well (but that white gets old) and Naboo from the throne room to the outer stairs? These are while i'm busy staining the new entertainment center...making momma happy.

    Sabotage was cool except for a million heroes in every last stage. Infiltration was really enjoyable, as was Scarif.

  • I’m expecting at least one, maybe two CW era extraction maps in the upcoming season. Droids vs Clones with new customizations and a new map or two. If not... Epic Fail.

  • Haven’t played Extraction in 2 weeks due to same TWO maps over and over. Hopefully they take this into account before making it a temporary mode (due to “lack of popularity”), and then trying to create cheap excitement when it comes back without doing any new work on new maps

    Heroes and their boss abilities would be too ridiculous for Extraction also, hence why they're not in it.

    Give heroes 1000 health like last game. No regen.

    Preselected heroes like han lando and chewie for lightside, which was advertised in the trailer.

    Boom balanced.

    Playing both maps each side is fine but after that, the game empties. This game mode simply needs more maps (and fix the spawn camping).

    Yea it’s pretty easy to get people trapped in the spawns if the team moving the Cargo isn’t proactive in moving forwards right in the beginning

    Ok, true. I’ve only experienced it once, just a few days ago when I joined the match in progress and my team was already corralled into the spawn area on Kessel. I made an impact, a little one at least, but we just couldn’t get out. Total learning experience for all involved. The lesson? Just as you said. Proactive in moving forwards right in the beginning. Lesson learned.

    True to a point. The first objective should be easier and then harder along the path but in both of these maps spawn camping can be routine - one of several methods to remedy this is to get your flank on and clear out the campers and hopefully your team can get the cargo moving. Alternately, playing officer and bubbling up can get some people to get on the cargo among others even that specialist's CA-87 can push quite a few of the enemies out of the death corridor to get things moving. The one positive and/or negative is that on smaller game modes it is hard hide players who do not ptfo and that can destroy an otherwise good team need all 8 rolling to get the W. On GA if you have several campers or players worried about K/D more than winning - it can mostly be disregarded with the greater player count.

    delete the entire August roadmap and replace with added extraction maps and it would be better.

    That'd only create more bugs. It's still so much better and less complicated without heroes.

    It's nice to have heroe free modes. Get your hero fix in GA and HVV is what I says.
  • I like this version much better than the 2015 version. I find myself playing this one more and more. Unfortunately the lack of maps has made it hard to continue to play daily, just like GA. Please stop wasting time on ewok hunt and jet pack cargo and get us more extraction maps.

    Ewok Hunt is not a waste of time! It is almost as good as Extraction.

And BOOM, it’s there :).

    Thank you much - always learning. Lately it's been foundations (as in basements), mater plants, pickles - lot of 'em, girls gymnastics, the book of Revelations, painting my basement (again), Stephen King's The Wind Through the Keyhole book, sorting out LDI and playing way too many games.

    Please. It's nonsense. Look! You can kill ewoks! Run around in the dark and find them. Gets old quick for me. But I really prefer the large modes anyway. So, for extraction to reel me into playing a smaller mode regularly, that's an accomplishment.

    Bump 4 more Extraction maps. Sullust Vardos Pillio DS II Naboo hanger to name a few.

    Pillio huh? I never thought of that one but from what I remember from the campaign it seems like a good one that could transfer over. I seem to remember going through narrow areas with stuff attacking me from the sides

    My preference is for the Vardos maps out of the campaign maps but someone else mentioned Pillio and I revisited that map and it would be a good map for Extraction. I don't play that much HvV but I do think the Naboo hanger map, which is a beauty, would work for Extraction as well. Still have Sullust at the top of the list but as you know, anything new added to Extraction would be welcome.

    I love Ewok Hunt because of the whole horror/infection aspect and because being an ewok is fun. Just because you don’t like modes without explosions and large scale gunfights doesn’t make a mode nonsense. You can still prefer large-scale modes but calling a creative and fun mode trash just because it isn’t action packed is ludicrous.

    If Pillio was added to extraction, I think I'd pick up the mode more often. Basically, killing people, and walking along an objective's pathway, is nothing different to package deliverer defending in Strike. (Well I mean, the path is a bit more random, but same concept. Follow, shoot, Point A, Point B ...) I haven't bothered much with Extraction, but if it came with an exclusive map, like Pillio... Well then, I'd probably never leave that mode.
