    So does this mean Grievous isnt coming until after the Halloween event? Great...

    I don't think so. Grievous should be coming on October as planned, but probably near the end of this month. This Community Calendar is specifying only of October, and also the latest Roadmap officially confirm this as well, so to me he suppose to be coming before November. I really hope things don't go wrong that forces any kind of delays...

    EDIT: Never mind. I now realized I misunderstood to a person I was responding to.

    Just looking at the calendar, the Grievous update is listed below the Halloween double XP and event stuf, which takes place between October 26th-28th. Which makes me think the 30th or 31st October, as patches come on Tuesdays or Wednesdays usually...

    Oops! I now realized I have misunderstood you. I actually thought you were referring after Hallowing day, which also means after October 31st, but I now realized you were referring to the Hallowing Event based directly from the calendar. My bad!
  • Out of all of these updates I would like to see at least 1 blaster added. For me it just gets a bit old after a while of using the same blasters every round, and so I would really like to see an update purely based on a large assortment of blasters. This game has been out for almost a whole year btw.

    No, it means that Halloween Nights is slated to start prior to Grievous. So we will see Grievous anytime between Oct 26th and 31st. My guess is October 30th. Will be paired with Clone Wars era playlist (if I had to guess twice).
  • This is going to be a fun month playing Battlefront!
  • Very excited for heros unleashed.
  • Interested to see the reactions to hero’s assault

  • I wouldn't read into it. I think they put that after everything to not lock it in between events on the timeline. I think we can anticipate it being realized as soon as its been tested and proven to work well.

    I said that though? As the Halloween event is the 26th-28th, so Grievous is likely to appear on the 30th or 31st. Thats what I said in my other comment. They may as well just say ready for the start of November in all honesty

    ...really we couldn't get dates/times for most of these? just a list of in order.... okay then

    It may not give dates, but it does tell you there’s an event every weekend. So since it goes in order, they have given us dates. This weekend is Heroes Unleashed and so on, so forth.
  • Great looking calendar. Hope there will be more in the coming months with new exciting stuff.

  • At least we are getting so see some things to help shake things up a bit to help keep GA fresh. Still no mention of the "hotfix" though?
  • we are playing the game for almost 1 year ... events are cool but what about new content ? blasters, units, maps... i really hope you will add some in the next months. i know that geonosis and new large mode is coming ... but please stop ajusting weapons/cards etc and work on new stuff. we all love this game and you have a talented team.

  • So theres 7 things coming up this month. Thats almost 2 a week. If it were to happen then it would be a huge improvement. We usually got 1 thing a month to look forward to.
  • I didn’t expect this, I thought we were going to have at least just two events but that’s awesome! Thank you so much😃
  • Im a little sad not to be able to try grevious before RDR2 because there is coming so much this month.

    spider man update, star wars, RDR2 :/ im sad
  • Sooo excited😍but where‘s jar jar though? :0 lol

    Why!!???? 8 heroes is gonna be just awful to play as infantry, will just be getting mowed down over and over!!
  • The fast spawn event should be the default state of the game. If a spawn timer isn't a necessary component of the game (like a loading issue), then why keep players waiting on the sidelines? The spawn timers and the 200 meter sprints back into battle are two of the most consistently irritating things with this game.

    Game will be about heroes actually protecting infantry on some maps. Need someone to override and sabotage. No need for assault class this weekend. Officers will be there for BP gain and squad shield. Specialist will be needed to run bubbles to get to override/sabotage points and to use their stinger. Stinger may be more useful than normal as heroes and villains are going to be locked up 1v1 a lot.

    Should be an interesting month for Battlefront. The only thing I am slightly bummed out by is the fact that the double XP weekend comes before Grievous. It would have been nice to level him quickly with a double XP weekend.

    Edit: also lol about night mode on Kamino, and Death Star. Did I miss something? Is there any visible daylight on those maps? Maybe the lights will just be off on the Death Star?
  • Aw what!? Looks like we're not getting Grevious until, at the very least, Saturday 27th :(

    How did you not see that coming since he was announced? Kinda standard.

    Kamino Phase 2 has light. Is there ever light coming in through the hanger bay of the Death Star?

    Make it pitch black and give us flashlights on these modes.

    Can we get dates for each event? And can we have the Clone Wars Era Playlist permanent for GA additional to what we have already?

  • This is fantastic! Great job @F8RGE! This is great communication and work! October 2018 is officially the best month since launch. Thank you all for your continuing efforts!
  • They couldn't deliver on the Double XP weekend last month, so take this with a grain of poo.

    Haha that would actually be kind of fun. Make it like Ewok Hunt but in Galactic Assault. I would play that! Could you imagine having a Rogue 1 moment when you are defending a hallway only to see the glow of Vader's saber moving towards you?
  • This is a great plan - I like it .... cant wait for the crazy hero slaughter in GA!!! This will be nuts :D !!!!
    Also the FAST SPAWN Event will be great. I hate spawn timers ... though they are necessary.
    Looking forward to Grievous so much.
    Thank you!

    When can we play as N1 Fighters in Hero Starfighter?
  • So, I like the idea of this calendar in general. Great communication, and it's a good idea to try to keep the community invested and interested with events.

    But almost everything here is for Galactic Assault, a mode my friends and I haven't played in months due to last-phase hero spam. And a lot of it is hero focused, but we don't really play heroes. So, this doesn't do much for me or anyone I know.

    Extend some of this to Extraction, or Strike, and maybe it will matter to us, but currently it doesn't.

    The Heroes Unleashed event sounds terrible, just more hero-centric fluff for a game that apparently wishes it was Overwatch. Please release a date on that soon so I know what weekend to not even give GA a random checkout (which I sometimes do to see if it's improved any).
  • Listen guys, as annoying as it is to basically wait another month for Greivous (coming out October 30th or 31st) this actually make sense, because they are adding Obi-wan kenobi in the beginning of November, so there'll only be like a 1 day gap in between the two new heroes. Ya'know, so its evenly matched for both sides...

    Yes, but no. Popcorn. He will drop at the end of the next month too judging by track record...

  • This Heroes unleashed is pretty good. It allows players to actually use heroes as they are meant to be. You should do this at least once a month. It will also give lower level players a chance not only to play a hero but also advance them. As we have all seen, it's the same players who get the heroes. This would help to make things a little more even. Just my two cents.
