  • They started the surveys after the two maps were burned out if I'm not mistaken. Upon release he called extraction a fan favorite. So not quite true there dude.
  • Wow F8rge just took a shotgun and blasted yall in the face. Lmao F8rge just comfirmed that SFA and Extraction content has always placed the lowest in community surveys.

    Do we believe him?

    Well Im not surprised by this result. This thread is like the 10 same people posting over and over. Most people have given up too. So what ever strong numbers this group had once has been reduced to ashes

    True. This isn't a lot of people on this thread. Just a lot of posts from the same.

    Thats why I think its a true statement that it does infact rate the lowest. Its sad too becuase I would like more SFA content but every always wants more skins more heros. I hope after Ahsoka were done with heros. (If she comes)

    We need conquest mode with starfighters and ground troopers... That takes priority over any other content for me right now.

    This is in my Q/A post
  • The majority of the playerbase: extraction maps!

    Devs: here is Ewok hunt
  • The reason for those results is obvious. It says nothing about what the popularity would have been if they didnt completely abandon the mode. That said, they added a map for ewok hunt. That was at the top of the list, right?


    I would also query the percentage of the player base that actually completed the survey. Until surveys are conducted actually in the game I do not think their results can be regarded in the least bit valid

    I don't think community surveys mean much. Most players of the game never take one. I don't bother anymore because it's clear DICE is only looking for an excuse to do what it wants to do. Aside from EA_Tom making a bunch of posts recently the community engagement is poor to bad.

    The only thing I'm looking for from the next updates is fixes to some of the obvious bugs they recently put in the game. These guys write code with their fists.
    Order of Strike maps leading up to Extraction:
    Kamino -> Mos Eisley -> Death Star II -> Kessel -> Jabba's

  • Maybe I just have poor recollection, but it seems the last 3 or 4 surveys have only been asking about rating the newest content, developer interaction, and whether or not you come across in-game chat bullies. There hasn’t been a place to “vote” for new content, only the box on what more Dice could do to make you recommend the game to a friend. And like it was said before, you only know about the surveys if you’re on a forum or follow those guys on Twitter. I’m sure there are a lot of players who don’t care about that sort of stuff and just want to play games. If Dice wants feedback from ALL players, put it on the main menu.

  • I dont believe it... so Ewok Hunt is more popular???
  • Maybe they should look at the numbers of BF15 and see where people are playing... it'll obviously be the modes they have neglected in BF17
  • Yeah, well:
    - Firstly, it's hard to get support for modes that are buried for more then a year;
    - Secondly, there's a natural mentality in the community that we should voice our most wanted request, or the request we believe may get the most chance of being added, of which Starfighter and Extraction content are never good options;
    - Thirdly, like @Moojammin_10 said, if Surveys are done outside of the game most of the community will never voice their opinion;
    - Fourthly, people are getting tired of these surveys which are long and ask many things that are boring to answer (I haven't taken one in many months);
    - Fifthly, are these surveys restricted to players only? Are they not prone to allow multiple surveys being done from one person only?

    I'd probably have more issues with them, but I think these suffice. One thing is certain: If they introduced like 2 ST maps to Extraction now (as ST seems to be the era they're focusing now), made it regain its tile in the Operation's Tab, had a spotlight in the main menu page of the game, and got promoted in some channels (here, reddit, a trailer maybe), then Extraction would EXPLODE in popularity, like F8RGE said: Whatever gets promoted in the main menu in the game seems to be what attracts most players.

  • Wow F8rge just took a shotgun and blasted yall in the face. Lmao F8rge just comfirmed that SFA and Extraction content has always placed the lowest in community surveys.

    Absolutely despicable. It's almost like the modes that have gotten NO SUPPORT are the ones people don't play as much. How ridiculous. If Extraction had as many maps as GA, do you think it'd be the lowest? I sure don't.

    You're falling prey to the same fallacy thinking that put Extraction into exile. For every person posting here, there are 10 others who were posting in threads like this a year ago, but gave up on the game. And another 10 who gave up on the game entirely.

    They said the mode was back-burnered because the playerbase was low, but the playerbase was low because the mode was back-burnered.

    You're saying the topic isn't getting attention because the number of posters are low, but the number of posters are low because the topic isn't getting any attention.

    I studied political science in college, specialized in elections/voting/polling. These polls and surveys here are extremely unreliable and a massive tilted data set reaching a small population.

    The only people that are gonna vote are the people that participate on this forum or reddit, which is an extremely low population number, particularly of total pop, and also a very biased population number. people that left the game for various reasons are not gonna be voting. So you have massive confirmation bias going on.

    It is a blatantly bad system of self fulfilling prophecy. You ask clone wars fans if they want more clone wars and the answer is yes. Then they say Hey we're giving you what you want. It's missing the other 95% of people that have purchased this title.

    It's also not conducted through a 3rd party neutral service. The surveys and polls are absolutely horrifically bad data, massively biased and sided.

    If you're referring specifically to the surveys DICE releases on the forum, they don't base their updates specifically on the data they receive from them. I think it was F8RGE who said basically exactly what you just said as the reason.

  • Might as well close this down. @F8RGE says in another thread they don't even plan on unmerging it, so updating will never happen.

    At this point, I'd given up all hope on new maps. I had a shred of hope that they would unmerge extraction from strike.

    Basically, I went from being able to get 8 on 8 Extraction almost every time I played to it being weeks to months since I've seen an Extraction Map much less get a full 8 v. 8.

    Good point lol.

    I'm sure nobody played Drop Zone, Droid Run, Cargo or Turning Point....

    They constantly try to fix what's not broken and removed stuff that people were playing or not complaining about. I mean, you can't tell me people didn't play Drop Zone yet they killed it.

    Another perfect example here. I don't remember anybody saying Extraction was terrible and it should be merged with strike and removed as it's own game mode but that's what they go and do.

    It was just the easy way out after they probably decided they were not going to address the mode by making more maps.

    Instead we're left with Ewok Hunt as it's own mode....Sorry, but it's just horrible.

    it's a pretty bitter pill to swallow but there it is...DICE would rather keep this mode buried (maybe because they're embarrassed it has only two maps) than put the tile back, something that would take about five minutes to do

    going to keep quitting out of Strike games until I get Extraction, and each time I'll pretend I'm escorting new Extraction maps through DICE HQ, or alternately stopping DICE from rolling out another bug-filled update

    LOL. Amazing, you mean a mode that was only given to maps and then was ignored for almost 2 years, somehow didn't have one of the highest player base is in the game? Astounding. :lol:

    As I've said countless times, along with many others, if they treated GA or CS or HvV the way they treated Extraction, then those modes would have suffered the same fate. They would have had the smallest playerbases, and they would have eventually gotten tossed in the corner, just like Extraction.

    That is actually a valid point.

    Both modes died: "Assault" due to the glitch not allowing you to arm or disarm a bomb and "Extraction" for getting no knew maps for two years. Thus when they inevitably died the devs sought to fix it by merging the two, yet did not address the major issues unfortunately. This was because all their focus was on other modes and I gather also due to lower staff numbers.

  • They have created new maps like Geonosis, Felucia and Ajan Kloss... why on earth when designing it they didnt take into account making areas of the maps that could be used for other game modes! They section off the maps for HvV so why not for other modes?? That way they get more value out of each map cos multiple playerbases are able to use it!

    Frostbite was created by DICE, and then EA adopted it as their major (and exclusive) Game Engine to make most of their games. Which leads us to:

    So it's their responsibility indeed. I get it that whichever team created the engine may not be working at DICE anymore, but that doesn't make them not responsible for its development and functionality. All in all, if Frostbite is the reason for so many issues, it's definetly EA/DICE's fault: one for not making it good enough (DICE), and the other for not encouraging the engine to be better or substituted.

    We can't remove the blame on devs if the engine they created is the source of all issues. Its not like now the engine is an entity on its own and can be blamed for anything without consequences. OTOH maybe DICE would have preferred to use Unreal Engine or Unity, or would love to spend more time and effort fixing their engine, but EA could have other priorities for them and also force them to use what they have. Either way, EA/DICE is to blame for Frostbite's malfunctioning.
