Can we do a Weekend Event for Cargo without Jetpack Troopers?

In the spirit of these fun and unique weekend events, me and the discord boys had some thoughts on this. Weekend events SHOULD be the system we need to Vote in New Modes we want permanently added IMO, after trying them out/experiencing them. So who's to say we can't do this for other things/modes too? Who's to say we can't have a "Drop Zone" weekend one day also. The sky is the limit. I'm in a good mood, and vibing with things as of late.

So what do you guys think? Should Weekend events be a nursery for voting in new modes we want after trying them out? Thoughts?

    I also agree with this. What seems like fun at first can sometimes change after more playtime and play styles adapt.

    Of course

    The quicker DICE moves away from gimmicks to creating actual serious and compeitive modes the better

    I love silliness, but when the vast majority of the content since launch has been gimmick filled modes like HS, Ewok Hunt, Jump-Pack Cargo, Enforcer Weekend

    Yeah

    It gets a little tiring

  • Great idea, @Dash !!

    They need to add another cargo with proper bases, ultimately, but that would be a cool start.

    Brilliant list, exactly what the game needs
  • Full credit to @BoothStick for putting this genius DropZone game mode together using assets that already exist in BF2. It should make it a lot easier for the dev's to put together and test out on the community.

    "So for those of you that haven't played Supply Drop it's very similar to Drop Zone. However, instead of an activation button, and then guarding it until timer goes down to claim it... this mode has a small AOE point capture bleed for teams to obtain the score. More players in it, the faster the bleed. Multiple drops as game continues so you have to decide to contest a supply drop, or abandon it and go for another one. First team to 500 points wins. So landslide is 5 or 6 Supply drops, but I believe it can go up to 10 drops at 100 points per drop.
    So here is where I look at the current existing assets in SWBF2 that can be used for this game mode. If they can port over the Escape Pods, and the drop animations from SWBF1... awesome. However, I'm going to assume porting those over would take some time, and it would be easier to just use SWBF2's assets only.
    #1 The Supply Sled from Extraction:
    Use the the exact same sled, and have 10 of them scattered stationary randomly across the map. Their random activation to pull points from would determine where the teams should go to obtain points. It would be an open sandbox on smaller maps. So just because you see one doesn't mean it's the next one to be activated to obtain score.
    #2 The AOE to make the Sled move in Extraction:
    Unlike SWBF1 where the sled moved based on an On/Off switch, in SWBF2 it has an AOE that makes the sled move or stop on contention. It's pretty small, and roughly the same point bleed/capture area in Battlefield 1's Supply Drop. So instead of making that AOE move something, have that AOE reward players points from a pool that supply drop holds.
    #3 The 10 Maps:
    So I can't really think of areas that would be perfect for this game mode from certain Galactic Assault maps. Especially the size and trying to think of parts of those maps not really used that often. So I'm omitting Death Star II, Kamino, and Crait. However, these parts of Galactic Assault maps I think would be perfect. Leaving out Jabba's Palace and Kessel too because I think they're too close quarters for this.
    A) NABOO - Stage 1 of Phase 1 from Droid spawn to the plazas where the 1st Disruptors are staged.
    B ) KASHYYYK - Stage 1 of Phase 1 from Droid Spawn to just past where 1st Disruptors are. Just want to fight on the beaches
    C) MOS EISLEY - Phase 3 area around the U-Wing Hanger and maybe bleed into parts of Phase 2.
    D) HOTH - Stage 2 of Phase 1 where there is still some elevation and caves. Not too open or OP high ground.
    E) ENDOR - Stage 2 of Phase 2 just where the Ewok Villages end, the caves, and before you get to base.
    F) BESPIN - Basically just the Blast Map.
    G) YAVIN IV - Phase 2 but bleeds into Phase 3. Use the Outside of Temple, but cant go into base.
    H) STARKILLER BASE - Phase 1, aka the Heroes vs Villains Map. Not original I know, but good map for it.
    I) TAKODANNA - Basically just the Blast Map.
    J) JAKKU - Phase 2 to Phase 3... Basically a larger version of Heroes vs Villains Map"

    I’d honestly love to hear what everyone has to say about this. Weekend events aren’t gonna go away, and we should most definitely have a discussion about this proposal.

  • I always enjoyed sabotage. Would be nice to play that again for a weekend. I desperately miss cargo. And I am holding out hope that Extraction returns too. You know, the real Extraction. A limited number of heroes and most importantly more maps.
  • Just make sure the mode gets more than 2 maps.

    YES! I was hoping this would become a more regular event, but I love this idea! We could get a Hero Blast, and I could see awesome modes like Droid Run, Drop Zone, and- of course- Cargo return in all their glory! Here here!

  • I think cargo would be the best bet, I think it would work well and and satisfy a ton of people, it’s long overdue. I really hope this gets a little traction and gets the devs attention.

    As much as I love dropzone it wouldn’t be dropzone without the speed and jepltpacks from the 1st game. I would love it as long as it’s a copy and paste from 15, otherwise I just can’t see it working well with this games mechanics and lack of jetpacks imo:

    So what do you guys think? Should Weekend events be a nursery for voting in new modes we want after trying them out? Thoughts?
    This did happen with Ewok Hunt, but it had no formal poll. We need a formal poll. But cargo would be nice. Just adjust available units and we already have 2 maps...

    Three, actually... if you're referring to JPC, they made a variant for Mos Eisley, Bespin, and Yavin 4. To be fair, I'd much rather it function like the old "Collect more cargo from the ememy shipment to win" version, but it's something to work with.

    +1. I like the two cargos rather than 1 in the middle. Adds a spice of decision making whether you should defend or try to steal.
