Hero Banter Not Working

Not sure if anyone else has noticed or mentioned this but hero banter doesn't work properly. Heroes and villians taunt each other, but heroes do not speak with other heroes anymore, and vice versa. Anyone else seeing this?

  • Yes, wasn't sure if I was imagining it but seems not.
  • Yeah I noticed this too, I thought I was the only one
  • They have been quiet lately. Even Han and Lando's dialogue about owing money that happened every time they saw each other doesn't happen anymore. Not game breaking or anything, but I miss it. But yet they still don't fail to announce their presence to the enemy. I want to strangle Rey when I'm sneaking up and she yells something.

  • I haven't payed attention to it but now that you mentioned it I believe the banter is less frequent.

  • I used to hear Finn talking about Maul or other heroes all the time, but none of the heroes do it anymore. Neither do the villains.

    Its working for me.
    Just heard lando and han talking about scamming.

  • Yeah, perhaps the incidence rate of it happening has slightly come down, but when I'm playing as Lando, he and Luke are always chatting. So it's definitely still working.
  • To reiterate... PS4 for me

    I have heard banter working on Xbox in the last 24 hours. But I have never, ever once heard Leia speak in a match in a modified voice as Boushh. Never. And I bought that skin on day one.

    Did they fix this already? I could swear it wasn’t working right after the patch launched.

    It couldn't have been fixed, I assume it'd be something that needs patching. I think people just got it in their heads that the hero banter wasn't working, because I can 100% confirm that I've been experiencing the banter all night tonight.

    They fixed the MIA stormtrooper bonus overnight in Ewok Hunt. On launch day, MIA’s got the same point values as survivors, and now their bonus is minimal enough that they come way behind the Surviving stormtroopers in BP, but still ahead of the leading ewoks.

  • Still happening for me on PS4.

    Again the issue is heroes not interacting with other heroes (vis a vie Villains as well).
    Heroes will talk trash to Villains. That works.
    Villains will talk trash to Heroes. That works.
    But no longer do I hear the conversations between Han and Luke, Vader and Palpatine, Han and Lando, etc.

    These were such fun to hear and added such an incredible dimension to the game.
    Early on in the games life when on the Death Star in GA, I played as Lando and another player was Han. Somehow we both managed to duck for cover in adjacent elevator shafts at the same time. What transpired was a wonderful stsr wars moment where to two old friends in the middle of chaos were talking about what Han did to the Falcon and how Lando still felt it was his ship. When the convo was over we went back into the battle.

    It was glorious.

    This no longer happens. I don't care about any other audio bug. This one needs to be fixed.

    SAVE THE BANTER, SAVE THE DREAM!
  • Speaking of... Has anyone EVER heard any banter between Rey and Finn? Those two have such great chemistry onscreen (and in real life, apparently). It would be great to hear them conversing on the battlefront.

  • ^^ never heard it either. Find it strange
  • IM lucky if I can get the hero emotes to work half the time. I'm on Xbox.

    Sucks because I waited a long time to buy some of them.

    Generally, two emotes won’t sound off at the same time. And same for me, sometimes they don’t regardless. If you wait a second they’ll work.
  • I've noticed that too. If on player is emoting the other players emote won't work properly. The movements happen, but the sound doesn't. Makes it very difficult to have a playful "conversation"
  • Any chance of getting back the hero voice lines as they enter GA, rather than “some hotshot deploying, not sure who!”
  • Ps4 no hero banter last night played for hours.

    It's because another person is talking or emoting. Happens in bf15 as well.

    Only fix is to restart game if so.

    Yea it’s pretty common. Restarting always seems to fix it
