No Way to Choose Era or Faction?

Am I just blind, or is there no way to only play a specific faction and a specific era?

I have absolutely zero interest in playing as Rebel scum. Give me droids or Stormtroopers any day.

Is there some hidden alternative queue menu that provides these choices?

Or are you forced to play whatever faction and era it puts you in for Galactic Assault?


  • You can cancel a map before it starts. No choice after that. Except quitting.

    I don't like the rebels either (except Luke and Wookie Warrior), and i don't like the sequel maps, or open maps in general. Give me DS2, Kamino, Tatooine, Naboo, Kessel and Jabba's Palace (best map in the game!)

  • Nope, no map select, no side select, nothing at all. You get "play" and "don't play"... Welcome to games by EA
  • We've been asking for the option to skip the prequel maps since launch. So far... nothing.
  • To be honest the play both sides system is quite strong in this game and good for balancing.
    You need to play each map on both sides, so can't say that rebels are always more powerfull or something like that.
    Because once you play them, next you need to play against them.

    Or for example everyone would choose empire to get the Death trooper on Blast as the Wookie sucks, hairy balls.

    The downside is that you don't see guilds like the 501st or specific era or side groups as you really have to play both sides. And for me that is sad, as I like themed guilds.
  • Oh poor babies, having to play as both the light and dark sides. My heart bleeds....NOT!

    >forgetting that the most successful Battlefront game of all time included OP's requested feature.

    "My heart bleeds."

    Yes, I think all of our hearts have blood.
