    Thread: The lag source needs to be dealt with.

    Thank you for fixing matchmaking. That's 1 of 2 fixed. Let's get it so that the game stops using the wrong IP address and make it 2 of 2.

    Did someone beat you in the game fairly and you're upset? Was it not bugged or due to lag or a hack and it made you cry? Then please fill out this form and follow it's instructions for sending to the appropriate people.

    Um, so does this mean what it says? Only lightsaber tweaks and balancing changes were made for the Galactic Assault mode? Is HvV lightsaber users remaining the way it already is, without any changes?

    I think it means the changes were to make certain characters viable again in GA but I would assume the changes go across the board - there just wasn’t an issue with the stamina change in HvV on GA really

  • Anything on matchmaking?
  • That's good to hear Ben, hey my feed back to you would be to prioritize the clone skins and the clone wars season. Major issues seem to be out of the way so you can focus on that now.25z2qintxcdi.jpg

    Accidently quoted someone, oops.


  • Good stuff! Looking forward to this patch! Keep 'em coming!
    "All wings report in."
  • Did this patch already go through? It doesn't appear that anything in my game client changed when I opened the game. Palpatine is still missing and I don't see the stamina changes. I even attempted to updat the game before I booted it up, though nothing happened.

    They should announce the list of game-breaking bugs this patch will introduce instead since you know it's about 100x longer than the list of fixes. The fact that they released the last patch with the rewards message spamming the dashboard only proves they don't QA anything.
  • Jesus this place is awful.
    The patch was delayed but thankfully it's here and all we can do is whine about what isn't fixed yet even though they've said the next update will fix those issues
  • A last concern: what about Palpatine’s stamina? It doesn’t have any regeneration delay, he will still be a bit overpowered

    The emperor has been away on a secret training camp. "If you flick the kill switch, I will become stronger than you can ever imagine." Of course he will come back stronger than ever.
  • i am just update it hotfix
  • There are still server and matchmaking problem, can't enter any multiplayer mode. I don't need events, I want game to be playable... I can spend all day long waiting in lobby myb one player pops in. Please fix it ASAP and let it be no.1 priority!!!

    I feel bad for your son since this game is most likely not going to survive another year....thanks to EA.

    FYI: Even SWBF2015 is not dead yet. Played it last week on PS4. Lots of good matches. SWBFII will survive for years to come. It may not get as many updates after next spring, but the game will surely survive. I really hope for more, though.

    Which game are you playing? Its still massively bugged, with Ping and LAG etc as well as other known issues, so NO, clone skins should not be a priority, sorting out the remaining issues should be.
    Rebellions are built on hope.

    I, too, am worried that content will take so long to develop, test, rollout, allow us to test it, reproduce issues, patch, and repeat, that it's going to cost more to pay everyone over a long period than to hire more people over a shorter period. Obviously extremely talented people are working on this gorgeous game! Companies are hiring like crazy right now, so I wonder if they are really growing this team like they could be. People need good jobs where they get the entire month of July to vacation. I don't know if the rest of the time they put in 80-110 hours a week, so if that's what's up then there are people who'll work that hard if they'll get paid OT for it. Maybe OT would destroy EA lol lol lol. BTW thanks for the update... Not sure why the changes seem disproportionate to the time needed to develop them, but ok, it takes a while to do a couple things.
  • What about the this route map showing Clone Wars stuff that was suppose to come?
  • Am I the only one who's villains are all level 40, yet who's heroes are 10 levels lower across the board? Immobilized to death every match? Not enough Lando disablers for everyone. Freezing, pulling, choking, throwing, stunning to the 10 to 0 win for villains.
  • @F8RGE What about the Kashyyyk map problem not loading correctly?
  • Still overpowered... GA was better without him

    Is it just me or was palpatine extremely underpowered before he was removed? I mean this is the sith emperor, all heroes should have the skills and power that they would have in the movies. Unfair? Yeah. But immmmeerrsssiooonnn. Seriously, Han Solo definitely should not be able to easily take down the emperor the way I’ve seen. At least make him cost more points in maps like galactic assault, and buff the other heroes so it feels like we’re actually playing as heroes ty.
  • can the battlefront team also add hero hunt and supremacy thanks and also add hero erza bridger and kanan jurras as rebels dlc
  • Please
  • Good to hear but what about the other bugs and any news on the sentinel class(driodekas,arc troopers,honor guards,shock troopers, baton staff trooper ect...)
  • How come Jet Pack Cargo was removed from the game?Ewok hunt sucks ****.Boooo!
  • Luke and vader
  • Heros and Villians is working pretty well so far..... only gripe currently is that Yoda can block all of emperor's lightning attacks with his block.

    Yoda blocks:
    • Standard lightning attack(this is fine)
    • Chain lightning(i'm alright with this)
    • Ground lightning attack(I don't think that this should be blockable by any lightsaber wielding character especially yoda)
    • Dark Aura gets through block, but it does minimal damage to yoda( Yoda can just heal)

    Great fix EA but I still have a problem when I go to options controls and set my stick dead zone to zero.My troopers, heros,or villans will do a taunt and they move without me moving my controler.They only taunt again at level 8 and up please help me EA?
  • But what about the sound bug? Will we have Crossplay? Very difficult to find players, Crossplay among other platforms would solve this problem.

    ;)
  • Thank you for fixing your own mess!..... great hotfix, so much new content to explore

    Hi everyone,

    Emperor Palpatine and Ewok Hunt are back! The issues that required us to temporarily disable both have been fixed in this patch. In addition to that we’ve deployed balancing updates to lightsaber heroes in Galactic Assault that should make them viable again. Give them a try and let us know what you think. We also addressed the stuttering upon hard-lock issue in Hero tw
    Starfighters.

    Finally we want to thank you for your patience while we were working on addressing these key problems! Your feedback is valuable to us so please keep sending it along as we continue to improve the game.

    The Star Wars Battlefront II Team

    CHANGES
    • Palpatine has been added back to the game
    • Fixed an issue with Palpatine being very overpowered by restricting the angle from which the player could lock on with his lighting ability
    • Fixed an issue with Palpatine being able to lock onto targets through walls
    • Ewok Hunt has been added back to the game
    • Fixed an issue in Ewok Hunt where Stormtroopers were unable to board the shuttle
    • Rebalanced stamina for lightsaber heroes
    • Fixed an issue in Hero Starfighters on PC where players experienced a short stuttering before being locked on

    Wow ! This will get me to play again!!!


    Just kidding.
  • What about the following severe bugs that make the game momentarily unplayable:

    - All sound suddenly disappearing. Every single player in the game has this issue.
    - Specialist Infiltration suddenly not showing enemies on the minimap. It breaks randomly, making the specialist class unplayable.
    - Melee attack no longer working after using abilities like thermal binoculars.

    In particular, I cannot grasp why the sound bug is not given highest priority. Come on, when was this game released, 2017? This is the most embarrassing bug I have seen in a computer game in many years.
  • Hey Ben, considering you guys are busy on Multiplayer right now but considering you want to add to the longevity of the game, will you in the future potentially be adding a new Campaign DLC? and is there any hope of Jyn, Krennic and the other cast from Rogue One as well as the Scarif map or a map in Jedha City to make return or initial entry to the game in the future cause I noticed we haven't gotten much dlc in the way of Classic Era for obvious reasons but after Clone Wars Season is over is that possible?
  • Is this for real???? We have waited ages for this months roadmap update and all we get is this "hotfix" which is 3 weeks overdue!!! Really poor
  • So when do Xbox players get to unlock victory poses and emotes. They're only available in Loot Crates but there's no way to get crates aside from daily ones that exclusively give 500 credits a day. So I just can't get them... well why not?

    Next update, probably around August 15th or 20th
  • Scoring is broken. Now shows 0 points per match

    I’m on PS4
