    To recap, they didn't give us real customization. They didn't give us legion defaults. They kept the generic legion defaults we've already had. They only gave us two sets of three skins, each with all the same markings. They didn't even get the markings for those two legions right. They didn't give the Officer ANY skins at all. They didn't release enough to make any decent amount of income for the game. And all we're likely to get in the future in terms of skins is more dribbles of a couple of legions at a time.

    I'm at the point where the only things I care about with the patches is the buff/nerf news. I gave up on new content a long time ago.

  • At least we get something.

    What I most want to see is new maps for Extraction and SA (hope is all we have for this)

    I do like the skins being bundled. Just wish more were released than just two ...

    Most of all anxiously awaiting the list of bug fixes. That should be a nice long list. Not holding my breath though. As long as it has taken just for the ping site issue to be fixed. Many many more actual bugs than that ...

    PS - the hero bp pricing has held up without the x2 multiplier. I don't think lowering the bp price was necessary. From what I see, this may actually make GA worse than it already is...

    Hooray, more immersion breaking... this time with rainbow clones. I love how the OP is littered with lore about the 41st and who fought along side them... then when it comes to playing this game, we’ll have the pleasure of seeing Jedi General REY leading the clones.

    If we're lucky (in the future) they'll block the heroes so they wouldn't be purchased to play on the map.

    I know it is annoying bu maybe with the clone wars Characters they also start making it available to choose only playing prequel with those from that era or sequel and so on, but who knows. and again, inside u like the idea of being able to play as "other" clones, it gives a realism in some way, cause now the troppers has an advantage in Kasyykkhaaaaa… haha … but i really love the idea, and hopefully we get more skins as the progress :D

    Can someone please explain why modders give us better skins and customization than the devs themselves? Like please DICE for once give us an update with a decent amount of skins, only getting TWO clone troopers skins after almost what? A YEAR is just...lazy, there are so MANY different legions to make skins based off of, and if I am getting this correctly you still haven't given the 41st legion its proper armor? I mean it SHOULD look like this ol0bfolk8xsv.jpg I just don't understand.

    This is probably the skin we will see and get for the Specialist class, the Scout Trooper variant.
  • So does this confirm a mixing of clone legions, then?

    Looks like it. No mention of this being a texture swap that changes what individual players see, so it's looking like we're getting the dreaded rainbow trooper scenario that the community said they didn't want. All these months and they can't come up with anything better than that.
    Honestly, @F8RGE, how hard would it be for the devs to do something like my Clone Customisation concept? Also, surely having a wider selection of skins means there's more to spend credits and especially crystals on? Most people will have enough credits to buy the new trooper skins and some, like myself, probably won't buy any if it means we have to be in a rainbow trooper legion.

    As they say in my country: if you want to improve, start with yourself. Therefore, to avoid the rainbow, we must take those legions who fought on their planets as the 41st Legion fought on Kashyyk
    P.S. This is my personal opinion, I do not urge anyone to follow it
  • So the rumoured "Sentinel" class is coming now too, then? Droidekas for the CIS, and what.. Clone Commanders for the Republic?
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

  • I agree with the rainbow effect... I'll personnaly use 41st legion only on Kashyyyk ;)
  • Where's Commander Gree?
  • I agree with the rainbow effect... I'll personnaly use 41st legion only on Kashyyyk ;)

    I agree with Satan.

  • A question @F8RGE : will 41st legion specialist's helmet look like this? Or the legion's colours will be simply applied to the existent armour?

    Thank you!

    Maybe those who don't know anything about clones or clone legions won't care. But those people wouldn't care if the devs did it right, either. So why not just do it right?

    Well let’s think about that. Why didn’t they give all the customization to legions by planet/battle. Perhaps that would take additional programming? Resources are already thin and past changes have resulted in bugs that require fixing. Perhaps they need to focus those limited resources on fixing the many other issues with the game and other items constantly requested? Has that been considered?

    If there are several skins per legion and they all look somewhat similar (one has antenna, other has a different shoulder pad or backpack), then I could also see the potential for fallout as players complain they are greedy and lazy with small variations to each legion’s skin for maximized profit. On the flip side I think they should invest heavily in skins and whose to say that isn’t coming, Fall and Winter still flagged for clone trooper appearances in the road map.

    It has already been said by others but the game has cross era heroes, did anyone really expect them to care if there are different legions in specific battles that weren’t actually present in the canon?

    In the end I am on the side of don’t care. Role play that a couple troopers from different legions were called in to assist. That is one way around it for those so upset by the thought of rainbow troopers.

    Hi Forge,

    can you please make the bots in arcade use skins? I suggest 3 options:

    -Default: stays as it is now
    -Random: bots use random skins
    -Mirror: bots of each side use skins you have equipped for them

    I think this is a very good immersive feature, especially the mirror option, you can create your own battles

    This would be awesome. Will player 2 be able to use skins in Arcade split screen?

    In my view yes, he will get randoms skins with "random" option (limited to purchased ones by p1) and p1 skins with "Mirror" options.

    Sorry about the confusion, I was asking @F8RGE if player 2 could select their own skin in Arcade. I should have done two separate comments. Thanks for the reply.
    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.

    That's a simple answer they just care more about the game you're thinking too hard about that question
  • @F8RGE So let's try to straighten this situation out. Did you make the Clone Skin art when you decided to actually try to add in Droideka's? Secondly did reinforcement cost reduction picture be made when you were planning on more Reinforcements? Lastly do you have a leak? This sort of stuff doesn't happen with any games that I know of yet you have allowed the community to be completely confused by this news. Look I don't know but I imagine it's hard to handle such a large game with 100 developers but stuff like this going wrong. What is going on inside Dice? I have no clue if you are trying to hide the fact that you are adding in the stuff that has been accidentally leaked onto this update Droideka etc. Just sort this out though. We/what's left of the Battlefront 2 community have help upmost faith in you but you have fallen short on our expectations.

    Please just explain what is going on.

    Sorry, your statement doesn't even make sense. I somehow gave a "simple" answer, while thinking TOO "hard"... lol, huh? If you look close enough this is a 41st Scout Trooper/Specialist Class, not the same as the Assault or Heavy... which were used in the Community Transmission artwork. That's ALL I'm saying, Ok, Okay :)
  • "In terms of balancing, we have addressed multiple issues in this update."
    What does this mean? Are there finally going to be changes with regard to steamrolling, spawn camping, etc.? Or is this merely a heading for what came after for glitch fixes?
  • Battlefront 2 has so much life left to live... Seriously though everybody needs to calm down. It took GTA 5 years to get where it is now. It was so bare bones at release. People still played and as time went on Rockstar kept dropping more and more precious content and boom game came back to life. Battlefront 2 is following closely behind that. Multiplayer is only going to get bigger and badder with more heroes, maps, skins, etc to come. Continue to give suggestions and ask for specific content to be added and help ensure the future of this game only improves.

    On another note the people who follow Clone Wars deeply are asking for Commander/Captain Rex either as a Hero. Excellent option i think, he has very appealing abilities and he would probably be very strong in GA since hes a Clone Trooper Leader and could feature some sweet Akimbo Pistols and some group buffs.
  • Are we having fixed simple bugs such as

    - Vader bug where he gets stuck on choke position
    - Kylo Ren freeze ability allows frozen players to continue shooting
    - Force pulling or pushing an enemy allows them to continue shooting
    - Luke being able to force push an AT-ST and insta-kill it
    - Fix the “hideout” on Yavin where players can hide inside a wall

    These are not game breaking but highlight how buggy the game is right now.

    Incoming Transmission

    We’re back for another Community Transmission and this time around, we’re going to be talking about the Elite Corps Update, which is due to arrive on August 29th.

    Let’s dive straight into what’s coming.

    mevdpi7cm2xe.jpg
    The 41st Elite Corps, or Elite Corps as they came to be known, were a division of the Republic Army that were involved in many iconic battles during the Clone Wars.

    Toward the end of the Clone Wars, Elite Corps were present at the Battle of Kashyyyk. Alongside Jedi Master Yoda, they came to the aid of the Wookiees on their home world. Other notable appearances were on Geonosis, where the Elite Corps were sent to assist Anakin Skywalker in retaking the planet.

    The 327th Star Corps were known for their distinctive yellow markings on their armor. Led by Jedi General Aayla Secura, they would take part in multiple battles across the Clone Wars. Notably, they were part of the Republic force that were defeated on Quell, despite the arrival of Anakin Skywalker.

    The new Clone Trooper Appearances will be priced at 20,000 credits or 500 Crystals each and available for Assault, Heavy and Specialist classes for the Galactic Republic. If you’re looking to pick up all three appearances for each corp, then you’ll be able to take advantage of a bundle that costs 40,000 credits.

    obi6w2md8c2z.png

    75nlzhkoyc6m.jpg

    In the next update, you’ll be able to purchase Emotes and Victory Poses for both Heroes and Troopers alike. This has been an often requested feature, so we’re really pleased to see it’s release into the game and look forward to seeing what you get up to with your new Emotes.

    Hero Emotes and Victory Poses will cost 2,000 Credits or 50 Crystals each. Trooper Emotes and Victory Poses will cost 1,000 credits or 25 Crystals each.

    u3ppsxhfydd4.jpg

    The Theed Hangar on Naboo is a bit of a favorite amongst the community, so we’re pleased to confirm that we’ll be making it available to both Blast and Custom Arcade.

    c1p38t5dtmc9.jpg

    Ewok Hunt has been a favorite amongst the community since its inclusion with the Night on Endor update, and there’s been a lot of talk surrounding its temporary nature.

    As part of the next update, Ewok Hunt will be here to stay as a permanent game mode within the operations menu.

    y2gv8v6yuex0.png

    You’ll now be given a breakdown of your score, eliminations, assists, deaths, your longest kills streak as well as overall placement on scoreboard, your combat placement and your objective score placement and whether or not you’re on the winning team. Remember, always play the objective.

    bt6gqles26ud.jpg

    hy3l3c62psjr.jpg

    A new tile in the Home menu will allow for quicker matchmaking into Clone Wars related maps on Galactic Assault. By selecting that tile, you can prioritize matchmaking for Clone Wars - era maps. However, if a match is not currently running on any of those maps, you will get to play into any other Galactic Assault map. This is our first steps to help improve matchmaking in the game. We are constantly working on improving our systems, and strive to achieve progressively better matchmaking going forward.

    f632amlt7z98.jpg

    Back at EA Play when we announced that Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Anakin Skywalker and Count Dooku were set to arrive in Star Wars Battlefront II, one of the common questions we received revolved around their pricing.

    Today, we can confirm that we are targeting a price of 35,000 Credits for each of the new heroes.

    We came to this price by using our in-game telemetry data to determine the speed in which players are earning credits, as well as the average amount of credits that each player has saved up. What this tells us is that for newcomers, or players with a credit balance of 0, it shouldn’t take too long to earn the credits needed and for veteran players, you most likely have enough credits already or are very close to reaching that amount.

    gzen7wzozi8m.jpg

    You will notice in the release notes that a fix for the x2 Bonus Multiplier is not listed. This is because the x2 multiplier will be removed in an upcoming update as part of the Squad System.

    Because of this, we will be lowering the Battlepoint costs for all Heroes and Units across Galactic Assault. Below you’ll find the old costs and the new costs.

    ltsnrnvxxdm9.png


    These new costs will be active once the Elite Corps update releases on August 29th.

    oa28twgclw19.jpg

    In terms of balancing, we have addressed multiple issues in this update.

    Extraction in Jabba’s Palace will have some changes. While playing as a Rebel, you will now notice that the spawn positions have been adjusted.

    On Death Star II, we have fixed an issue that allowed players to reach an area behind the armor racks.

    On Bespin, players were able to jump onto one of the buildings while playing as a force hero or Boba Fett. A change has been implemented to stop this. A similar issue was present on Kashyyyk, with players able to use Boba Fett’s jetpack to reach places other players could not. This will no longer be possible once the update arrives on August 29th.

    There was also an issue at Jabba’s Palace where Boba Fett could stand on one of the ledges and was not easily accessible to other players. This has also been fixed. Sorry, Boba! There’s nowhere to hide now.

    We'll be releasing the full release notes in the coming days, stay tuned for those.

    aybs2d9sma5a.jpg

    The next Roadmap update will arrive next week. In this update, we’ll break down the seasons (Fall, Winter) and provide details on future content to expect month by month.

    Battlefront Captures is a community over on Reddit that pride themselves in the creation of some of the best Star Wars Battlefront related content that you will find.

    A great place to visit if you’re searching for a new desktop wallpaper, and why not take part in one of their capture contests. Check out their recent Clone Capture Contest to see what they are all about.

    Punch it

    My God, there's so much epic news in this Community Transmission! Can't wait to get the full patch notes and updated Roadmap next week!

    Here's hoping the ability to equip Emotes and Victory Poses at the pre-round screen in Multiplayer will finally be implemented. Same goes for Arcade (along with Appearances and a "top players" post-match screen).

    Keep up the great work!

  • Will somebody get this thread a box of tissues please? With all the crying going on it's gonna short out the servers :p
  • Forge, will the update fix Phasma? She's really been camping a lot lately.
  • Great update! really excited about the clone skins!

    For the ones complaining about rainbow troopers, I respect your opinion as a clone wars fan, but take it easy, the game is great even despite the bugs. Maybe next star wars game will have full immersion, but this one clearly was't intended to be that way. To be honest, if sometimes people want to go with Kylo leading the droid army, I thing they should, I have done it myself a few times. So if rainbow troopers bother you, you can pick a skin most of your teammates are using on a given match, or as someone said in this forum, go for the skin that best relates to the map (i.e. 41st for Kashyyyk).

    Well, this looks like a pile of FAIL.

    All this time, and all we get is the 41st and the 327th? And they couldn't even get those right?

    This was their chance to wow us, to reassure us, to show us that they still cared about the game and they could do things well. Instead they just did the opposite.

    I defended DICE when people said they were going to go the cheap lazy way and just slap Legion skins on what they already had. There are more than 130 canon accurate skins that even I could have made in a week just by recoloring the skins that already exist, and this is their long-awaited Clone Trooper skin drop? Two Legions that aren't even done right? They may as well just make clone armor that says "hahaha" written all over it.

    And the rest of it. The community loves Extraction, so Ewok Hunt is made permanent. Hero spam is making large chunks of this game unplayable, so they reduce the BP requirements for getting Heroes. The community is begging for more maps for Extraction and Strike, so they give us Naboo Hangar for Blast and Arcade.

    I almost got a little bit excited for the CW-era playlist, but it's just the same selector we had last game that lets you choose your starting map, and it doesn't even do that all the time.

    I tried to hold out. I tried to keep the faith. Really, I did. I wanted to give them my money, wanted a reason to keep supporting them. But now... I may just be done with this game. I'm down to mostly just playing Extraction anyway. If they don't care, why should I?

    Punch it

    My God, there's so much epic news in this Community Transmission! Can't wait to get the full patch notes and updated Roadmap next week!

    Here's hoping the ability to equip Emotes and Victory Poses at the pre-round screen in Multiplayer will finally be implemented. Same goes for Arcade (along with Appearances and a "top players" post-match screen).

    Keep up the great work!

    I'd like to see skins, and emotes able to be equipped in between rounds in Arcade so player 2 in split screen can choose their own.
    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.
  • what about in the near future adding clone skins from the most notable and well known 501st legion?..... perhaps stylings of Captin Rex or Heavy or Fives or even the ARC Troopers of the 501st? That would better diversify the players just as the clones themselves tried to be diversified.
  • So am I Right, the bundle for 40k includes 3 Skins for 41th and 3 Skins for 327th?
  • So am I Right, the bundle for 40k includes 3 Skins for 41th and 3 Skins for 327th?

    one bundle includes only one legion so 3 skins and 80k for two bundles which u get both battalions.

    I do hope that buying the Clone skins also alters the appearance of Phase 1 Clones and not just Phase 2. I haven't seen anything regarding that.

    Oh dear God. Please tell me that Phase 501st is a bad mod because the helmet is all wrong.

    side show didn't do it right. the phase 1 501 dones't have marking like the phase 2. check this out from the clone wars

    Um, isn't the SideShow right according to movie Revenge of the Sith, and not just some Clone Wars cartoon?

    Only the phase two is accurate, not the phase 1, the older figures wasn't based on the clone wars but the new ones are. And if u really think clone wars canon is not important why are u here ??

    @F8RGE

    Salutations exalted One, you can send my cheers to the dev teams who worked on this patch, the new maps are great couldn't wait any longer for more Naboo Theed royal hangar.

    BUT! sadly yes, other people spotted that before me too, but the more hammering the better fit heh?

    As there are other simple issues too that could have been fixed, the one that dearly caught my eyes is to see Commander Bly's armor paint job and 41st still not fixed since they have been leaked, which is a super duper long time.

    They still didn't fix the skin for a standard 327th trooper, you guys here are missing a shot at an expansive Commander Bly legendary(?) skin that people might have bought with crystals to support the game!

    Heck of it Just make a Clone Commander Hero/reinforcement class or something and gives them legendary skins on top of it with famous quotes from the RotS and The Clone Wars, that 327th star corps skin being part of them.

    Did you saw that they didn't even update the 41st skin, just slapped the camo pattern all over the armor, Call'o'doody style?
    The Commander Cody visor addon should be another color or something, they should use the standard 41st elite corps scheme (seen in the Yoda's departure for Kashyyyk scene) and Commander Gree's own camo scheme as references.

    Please pretty please, give us a deeper customization menu for all factions, in which we can choose Headgear (no helmet for all factions really should be a thing by the way, why couldn't they just have lost their helmet or fully geared up??), torso gear, legs gear, and accessories.

    I don't know how it really is but Battlefield V's character customization could be a good foundation to build upon for Battlefront II right? RIGHT?? 8D

    There are tons of combinations possible that even if we didn't saw them on screen could still be considered Canon friendly for all factions even CIS...well not really but we can have other separatist races joining their ranks?

    I find your lack of Vision disturbingly saddening, it is time for you to Rebel against the oppression of the Mickey Mouse and EA's tyrants!

    @F8RGE he has a point....

    I have that point since the original battlefront by Pandemic Studios, I was hoping this for their bf2! xD Even sent it by mail to Lucasfilm when I was a kid, it was 10 pages worth for all factions, vehicles, and maps.

    And all of you asking for more clone armors for specific legions, remember that all the armors were available for all the Grand Army of the Republic forces, which means regulars corps too as they all started at the first battle of Geonosis ( yes these marking ranks are still going on in the regs with phase 2 armors) and the legions which are large-scale special forces, even if the bad batch consider them as regs too.

    So yeah to get to the point that the all the 41st troopers on Kashyyyk should be wearing the scout trooper armor I say no, the one they made is sure incomplete and needs to be fixed to be like this instead

    but is not that far of the ones seen in the movie the background, if the toy makers had this design it is for a good reason, unseen/unused in the movie but canon.

    At least we get something.

    What I most want to see is new maps for Extraction and SA (hope is all we have for this)

    I do like the skins being bundled. Just wish more were released than just two ...

    Most of all anxiously awaiting the list of bug fixes. That should be a nice long list. Not holding my breath though. As long as it has taken just for the ping site issue to be fixed. Many many more actual bugs than that ...

    PS - the hero bp pricing has held up without the x2 multiplier. I don't think lowering the bp price was necessary. From what I see, this may actually make GA worse than it already is...

    6 skins, actually.

  • I hope a fix for the screen flicker when switching star cards and dying is in there. Getting annoying and tired of it.
  • Does this patch fix the random bug that completely mutes the game? Really annoying.
  • Can we get some kind of matchmaking too? That'd be great.
  • Can we get a fix for the unending black loading screen when leaving a match?
  • this is strictly to ben. you need to get off your high horse and really see what we are wanting in this game. there is people not even playing this game anymore until we get more content on a regular basis. i play this game every single day since i bought it in January. please improve on game developments..this game would be so fun to play with more people..and bringing us gamers more updates more often will bring so many people wanting to have game nights with this particular game. this game has so much potential..bring it to life Ben..please!!!
  • Shouldn't it be the Kashyyyk skin that was a Scout Trooper but with camo like in Revenge of the Sith?

  • @F8RGE So right now I am extremely demotivated to play Battlefront 2. Want to know why? It's because ever since November I have basically been losing time and time again. I have been playing it since November rarely ever stopping for long with the exception of 1 time where I took like 2 months off. So tell me can we see a matchmaking improvement because right now if 1 team loses unbelievably to the other team and no one leaves the match that's easy credits for the winning side and it never changing who holds the winning trophy no team shuffler or anything. My friend just started to play the game and on the second day we played like 14 Galactic Assault Matches won like 2 or 3 and he was triggered and we have had to put up with that ever since launch.

    I am sure what remains of the Battlefront 2 team are working hard but hardly anything you promised at launch has hardly come to life. Please just request lots of Developers because this could be a game sent from Heaven instead Dice has dragged it through the mud no hot fixes so far 1 about to become 2 DLC's. I want to believe in this game but you are dragging the name Star Wars through the dirt like Disney has done with Star Wars Resistance and The Last Jedi.

    The problem isn't the ingame team balance shuffler, the problem is the people in your team if all them do random **** instead of PTFO sure you gonna lose every time, too much play it as a casu-arcade game that isn't serious because labeled Star Wars...

    It is a military shooter game with a star wars twist and requires to be played as a true team with tactics.

  • i find it amazing and quite disturbing that the biggest issue in the game at the moment (ping fix) actually didn't get mentioned in the release notes.

    there are a few options here, all equally as bad.
    1) Is this a case of pretend it never happened?
    2) does it mean that this wasn't seen as a priority? not even worth mentioning?
    3) does it mean that they're now frantically running around behind the scenes to add it in?

    i have no confidence this will be fixed.
