  • Pandemic did maps and modes way better nearly 15 years ago. Iconic planets from the CW like mustafar, mygeeto, felucia, geonosis and utapau were in the game from the start and then you had other maps like dagobah, tantive IV and polis massa.

    That's just some of the maps, most of which still haven't even been added to this game yet.

    Then you have modes. Galactic conquest, instant action, hunt on multiple planets, CTF ect all in the game from the start.

    Then you could play most of the modes on any planet. Nowadays we have no chance of seeing maps like jabbas palace in conquest/capital supremacy. No chance of seeing hunt on hoth. No chance of seeing CTF on felucia or XL on kashyyk.

    Then you have the ability to land in enemy ships, steal their fighters, destroy their internal systems ect.. sure, they weren't extremely different to eachother but that system was much more enjoyable than the abandoned star fighter mode we have now.

    Then, my personal favourite part, the ability to play any map with any era. Combined with the ability to play various modes per map, this offered great variety. Stormtroopers on kamino? Sure. Clones on the death star? Why the heck not? Go ahead. Nowadays we pick an era and then get a selection of planets that were from that era. In co-op you choose a faction and then it cycles through a few maps that you can play and it gets boring fast.

    Not saying this game isn't good but there are things that a vanilla game from 2005 still does better than a game from 2017, even after two years worth of updates.

    Your right. It may have had some better vehicles but the maps and special units were very unbalanced. There was also way too much grenade spam. It’s a good game but it’s really not as great.
  • anyone know the official rotation? been trying to get an extraction game for way too long

    Last 2 times I got to Jabba's Palace I was playing Takodana previously, so I believe Jabba's Extraction comes just after Strike in Takodana.

    I have no idea about Kessel though, didn't find it a single time since they merged.
    Tired of BUGs?

    Well, they'll still exist.
    But visit the Rogue Bros Channel, there we document many BUGs and possible workarounds for them. There's also gameplay and other videos related to EA's Star Wars Battlefront (I & II)

  • We should add to the title “and add other eras” to get more support.
  • Agreed. Shouldn't be too hard. But we have whole updates with BB heroes, smart moss, and chicken troopers coming... priorities, yes?!

    Just played some Extraction tonight, and I forgot some of the things I like about it so much.
    -No spawn timer
    -No reinforcement count
    Those two things make it such a good and refreshing mode in this game.
    "I felt there was a large amount of human chauvinism... also I felt very bad that at the end the Wookie didn't get a medal also... oh, all the people got medals but the Wookie who had been in there fighting all the time, didn't get any medal, and I thought that was an example of Anti-Wookie discrimination." - Carl Sagan on the subject of Star Wars

  • Hey guys, I got a quick question. As a result of the Strike/Extraction merge, does blast have more support than Extraction? Like have you guys seen more Blast threads than Extraction? Because I feel like it has less support and would be better merged with Strike than Extraction.
  • Blast and strike would be a better fit.
    Plenty of maps to rotate there games .
    Extraction on the other hand needs more maps.
    A good mix of Prequel, Original and Sequel.
  • EA doesn't care that a large group of customers loved a new mode called Extraction 18 Months ago and have been asking Dice ever since to please make more maps for us consumers
    All we can do is wait or move on to another company with more respect to its customers.
  • Best mode in the game still ruined

    Sort it please

    More extraction maps and separate Extraction from Strike.........then get rid of Ewok Hunt or push ewok hunt into battle senarios or co-op or something.

    Extraction deserves Ewok Hunts spot now!

    I still cant believe they wasted time adding a map to ewok hunt. Makes no sense.

    And Pies!

    And even custom messages for when the pies are destroyed. But reviving a Fan Favorite mode? Not in their interest.

    DICE's priorities are worthy to be studied.

    Define support, do you mean DICE support or players playing it supporting the game play?

    This sounds wise to me...Blast merged with Strike.

    Though like I said earlier I still say adding A.I. to all these modes would fill in a lot of holes.

    There are pies hidden across the ewok hunt map that when all have been found/ destroyed it opens up a secret section of the map where you can hear the Star Wars theme playing...

  • Only played 1 round so far on kamino, I literally just camped the objective with the NT disruptor shot and kept any meaningful objective push dead on arrival that thing melts officer and droideka shields I felt bad when they got upset and started trying to snipe back! Fun game mode for sure
  • Dedication. Obsession. Persistence. Tenacity.
  • Unmerge please.
  • I played some for the Daily Challenge. Last round was on Jabba's Palace and it was a tense victory for us at the last checkpoint.
    Not supporting Extraction reminds me of the theme of The Last Jedi, since it's one of DICE's biggest failures to not support it.

    I still haven't got a game yet. I refuse to play strike unless it's a daily challenge.

    Shame, I kinda like Strike too, but it's far from perfect. Not to mention that it's inferior to the last game which had several small game modes that were much better.
    Drop Zone
    Cargo
    Droid Run
    Why DICE didn't put in these but gave us that Frankenstein small objective mode is beyond me. Not to mention there's still not a single reinforcement-free mode in the game.

    Well I played for like an hour of Strike going through ever map I think then the computer finally gave me an Extraction mode map. Played Extraction on Kessel as both Rebels and Imperials. Then we went to Tatooine for Jabba's Palace and would you believe it everybody quit before match start. 🙄

    Well I can understand being a snow day and all in the U.S.A..

    One reason why it was another bad decision. Strike people dont want to play extraction and extraction people dont want to play strike all day to get one extraction map.

  • @EA_Tom Like SA Extraction has a dedicated following as evidenced by this thread.
    Make it 2 for 2 on Tuesday. Recognition and communication on 2 of the largest threads on the forums. 🔥🔥🔥

    "Nothing currently planned" is not adequate communication. Please explain the actions/inaction taken related to the mode since it was referenced as a fan favorite at launch.

  • MEMP2020. More Extraction Maps, and please, for the love of Lando, unmerge the playlists. I can more easily play Extraction on 2015BF than I can in this game. I miss Kessel. <3<3<3

  • Please separate Extraction and Strike. I find it almost impossible to find a game of Extraction whenever I try.
  • Please separate Extraction and Strike. I find it almost impossible to find a game of Extraction whenever I try.

    I have had good luck by going into Extraction/Strike from the menu and then cancelling until the planet is Kessel...good for 3-4 rounds of Extraction

    it's insane that DICE makes us do this WHILE THERE IS AN EMPTY SPACE STILL FOR THE EXTRACTION TILE...you have content that a segment of your players love and you needlessly hide it from them for no conceivable reason other than obsessive-compulsive UI organization
  • MEMP2020

    And Unmerge please

    Extraction is lost in the current arrangement and is slowly being killed off

    Oh, theyre aware of it alright. That's why the merge with strike was never discussed. They knew what the reaction would be, thats why it was never discussed before or after it was randomly dropped into an update.

    Unmerge extraction and add maps please.
