    I played Starfighter Assault 2 days ago, and I got "matchmade" to a laggier server everytime (around 5 times). No other issue from MM that time though. I wasn't in a group, nor did I play for long.
    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)
  • I waited 45 minutes for a GA game. I was "matchmade" into a game that was almost over. After that I was end of round "matchmade" into a lobby that needed 12 players. How is the eor mm supposed to work? It appears to have killed this game. Every load in is an empty lobby and once I get a game I am then removed from it.fsv592r27y00.jpg

  • What is the Algorithm used to decide when this is needed and who goes where? I have to say many times I have been involved in evenly matched games only to get sent to a pretty lopsided affair the next round. To Those of you hitting the matchmaking button, either give it a round or two (it will eventually correct itself) or simply exit the game and start over if you believe you are over matched. I believe a good matchmaking system is needed, but not at the expense of empty lobbies and/or evenly matched teams getting split up because a particular player got killed a couple times more than he/she thought they should
  • I can't even play with my brother now, one of the only reasons I was still playing. We both get sent to different servers constantly. It's not fun anymore.

    Thats some great data! Thank you for your positive feedback.
  • Its working as it should!....results are showing positive data!.....ahh dang it who am I kidding!..its Jacked man!.....totally jacked!!!
  • dont forget to vote in the latest poll to let them know what you think. let your voice be heard!

  • Playing Starfighter Assault on the German Server, finished Kamino with a win in both rounds and with full teams on each side. EOR kicks in, I and 1 other person get sent to a new lobby on our own -_-

  • Just got thrown from a perfectly balanced lobby into a game where we are getting destroyed as I type these words. Please DICE turn off EOR MM!

    Aha! I figured out the problem! Instead of helping your teammates, you were here, typing this post during the match!

    I jest.

    That would be an awesome opening line to a great plot-twisted novel.

    Ha! To someone with no context it would seem so mysterious LOL.

  • Just turn it off, no amount of jury-rigging is gonna fix something that is utter garbage.

    All this shows is that have no plans to turn it off which means they do not listen to everyone here in the forum and dont care that the game is broken. This maintenance will achieve nothing!......I'm purely basing this from past history which to me is a good bet.

    Obviously they are trying to fix the issue in different ways without removing anything from the game. They can't just do what you want, yes they listen you, but remember that final decision will be their. Just keep watching and posting feedback. It's important.

    Well the obvious solution would to be just turning it off, it is a win-win. People who don't like it won't have to deal with it anymore and those who do like it (doubt there is any) can just back out of a server and manually find a new game from the main menu.

    These fixes aren't doing anything, which is why they are making more of them, this mega thread exists and is proof that it is not working. Even then it is still unacceptable that we are being forced out of servers.

    Pfffthahaha. The issue is EoR MM itself. It should have never been implemented. Instead, it should have been custom lobbies/server browser. Like, you know, every Battlefield game had, the Battlefront games had, every normal functioning game has.
  • FYI as if more proof is needed that Dice does not wanna hear our opinions, try and start another thread called "matchmaking" and see what happens, go ahead I Dare ya!! lol

    But is there a reason why they can't remove it? Like @EV02AAA said it was supposed to be a weekend test. They have ran their test. Now it's time to turn it off.

    Can you confirm that the EOR MM testing was only suppose to be that one weekend? Besides it was easily added and can be easily removed especially with alot of complaints. Also can you get us any information on why servers are being shut down?

    Also want your opinion on why do you think things are so hostile now. We never had any big issues back in BF1 did we?

    It appears to be normal-ish, Map rotation back in HVV so all good though usual LAG, Many thanks for that, but please respond when you ask for feedback, it makes people angry when you don't.

    Just found a new flaw.

    A mate and I were playing the D'qar map in Starfighter Assault on the German Server. We were on the same team but not in a group. We finish the map.

    EOR matchmaking happens, I wind up in a lobby starting the Fondor Shipyards match.

    My friend? He winds up being kicked completely out of the game by the EOR matchmaking! No new half empty lobby, no different mode, nope straight out of the game.

    Happened around 21 minutes ago on the German Server (PC) from time of this post.

    My friend's username is 82Rasberries.

    I just don't understand, if you added something to the game, and it is NOT helping the game and causing server lag, empty lobbies, why are you keeping it in the game? Why not remove it, this issue was fixed during the Ping Site issue patch they dropped and stuff was fine but now it's a mess again.

    Are they purposely killing this game? they did remove like 3 or 4 server locations.

    Yes this is on purpose.

    No EoR MM will always be better than EoR MM with any amount of jury-rigging, if people want to find a new server they can just quit and do it at the main menu, forcing it upon us all is terrible.

    It's cause they are stubborn and don't want to look like they failed yet again. I mean if they said look people we tried it but you don't like it, would any one here moan ? No we wouldn't, but I guess they won't change and keep this frustrating thing in the game, so they don't have to say anything and pretend they are doing a good job.

    None of the devs probably play this game anyways so they not bothered and don't really care what we think.

    Btw last night I had 3 challenges, play 3 blast, 3 strike and 3 GA, I thought oh no this is gonna take a while, how wrong I was, every game I played was nearly finished and the matchmaking kicked in. 9 games and not 1 from the start, how on earth am I supposed to level up my specialist lol

    I play on xbox, Ireland, from 7pm to 11pm GMT, when in a group with friends we were repeatedly put into empty lobbies by ourselves after completing an initial match. Really frustrating.

    The Ireland server was deleted. You are probably playing on the German server now.

    I know about the servers, doesn't matter, this is an ongoing glitch in MM where if you are in a group you often get put into an empty lobby, when I play solo, I never do.

  • EOR match making is killing this game for me. Here are my complaints.

    1) EOR is making the squad system pointless since I can never be in same squad as my friends. Finally get on the same squad for a round and then it EOR and places us in different squads on the next map.
    2) It changes the game mode I am in. Switched from GA to Extraction etc. I've also had it switch from Extraction to GA.
    3) It makes it where I can play same map or faction over and over again. Had you released Grevious and Kenobi at the same time this wouldn't be a problem imo.
    4) It happens way too often. Don't EOR me out of a GA that was intense and then transfer me to a server that is waiting for 10 people to join.
    5) Don't have the match make button when it happens automatically. I naively thought the button was for when you wanted to EOR. It happens whether you want it or not.

    All we want is team scramble and auto balance...features FPS have had since the 90's. No reason to reinvent the wheel like you've been trying to do.
