Heroes are no longer the priority. Add content for troopers.

    Aren’t the faction defaults just skins? The RoF and damage is all the same.

    They serve as a customization element at the bare minimum. Even if the benefit is minimal the cost is virtually ZERO. How hard could it be to open up the availability of assets that are already in the game? I obviously want new weapons but I'm pitching them ideas that seem more suited to this drought of a live service.

    funnily enough there are certain defaults I enjoy using solely based on the appearance. For instance I can't stand the rebel heavy's default but love the resistance and droid variants. For the officers, the only default I like using is the droid one as well. Might be placebo but it's there regardless.

    Making them universally available across all four classes would be good for mixing up the actual gameplay though, I really hope @EA_Charlemagne @F8RGE you guys consider that

    • Bring back Walker Assault and make it like BF1 with beacons. None of that Ion Cannon to leave AT-ATs open to attack crap. Just like in TLJ with the Bombers - you don't need them when there's already Y-Wings to get the job done. Also holding and taking beacon stations is what made WA so much fun.
    • Stormtrooper skins like; TIE Pilot (Assault), Death Star Trooper (Officer), and Imperial Gunner (Heavy). I need my black Stormtroopers!
    • 4 new weapons per trooper class. X-8 Night Sniper for Specialist.
    • Add an alternative L1+R1 weapon per Trooper class. Pulse Cannon for Specialist.
    • Update weapon mod system so all mod types are available for all weapons and add one more slot. I like using the EL-16HFE, but its too slow for close range and can't be used as a sniper rifle because it can't use all three mods it needs to do so. You either don't have; Reduced Recoil, 2x Scope, or Long Range Damage. I have mine with Reduced Recoil and 2x Scope, which can get just barely get the job done.
    • Bring back FX-7 Medical Droid for Officer Class. We need something to counter Bossk's Dioxis and Acid Gas bombs.
    • Bring back BF1 Card Load Outs for troopers and Heroes. When I played BF1 I had indoor and exterior load outs built for those situations when the map changed. Troopers should have 3 per class and Heroes have 2.

    I still want to see a tertiary side track opened up for Heroes, Infiltrators, and Aerials to confront each other in GA. Base-4 players could opt to join in those battles if they so chose; otherwise they'd be going about their own Objectives as always. This way 'balance' is far easier for DICE to achieve in all venues.

    Heroes, Infiltrators, and Aerials would be given the standard 10-second disersion timer if they attempted to cross over in to the normal Base-4 only tracts. Base-4 players going in to the Hero-areas would be given a "I got a bad feeling about this" verbal warning / queue.

    Airspace above GA would be enlarged by 2-4x.

    Allow players to use credits to buy new weapons / star cards for their classes. Like 20,000 credits for a classless E-11, T21/T-21B, standard A280 (as seen in BF2015), and so on. Ditto for star cards. Once purchased, they are loadable by any base-4 class player you care to play.

    Once that is all done (which should be trivial for elite-caliber developers), add in more map space for the separate tracts for the Heroes, Infiltrators, and Aerials --- expanding the GA map sizes to rival those of BF2015 WA maps.. make them larger than those!!

    At some point there on, augment GA to be 32 v 32 or more.

    And give me back my Magma Trooper skin for OT...!!

    This is another hilarious "fix" by the devs, instead of ditching the squad system which really isn't needed in blast they decided to cancel the spawn option on aerials because people were camping Endor shuttles, Bespin domes, and Yavin upper levels (all blast).

    I think it is great they are getting content. In an ideal world they get the perfect hero mode and we get a perfect large scale Trooper only mode. However it always annoys me when we ask for anything and they are like "why does this thread exist" (pretty much telling us to shut up).

    Very well said. I get annoyed by that as well. We finally deserve some content other than skins

    I would be ok with it since the foundations are already there. It should be just adding another tile, although I do get a smile on my face when I remember the hero lords refusing to want separate playlists for events when it came to Hero’s Unleashed.

    Ultimately I couldn’t care less but some love for troopers is way overdue. They could always return to heroes and their modes after giving us at least something.
    We could have had a second tile with reinforcementless blast by now e.g.

    They just did the clones. But what should happen is a few additions to appearances for the OT on both sides and more weapons. I miss my T-21 and EE-3. How could they drop these when they were so popular?

    T-21 was tons of fun. I think I miss the DT-12 the most myself.
    I’d rather see more weapons before customization. Skins are cool, I’ve advocated for them many times, but they ultimately don’t give the game longevity like maps, modes and weapons/gadgets do.

    Can't be oversaturating the content now can we?

    The fact there’s a thread about them possibly working on giving all heroes a 4th ability yet still no talk of new weapons, private matches, or anything close to a competitive skilled small mode is incredible.

    You can thank the person who designed Ani for allowing players to believe that giving a character a 4th ability is acceptable. I was not expecting that as a design option, but I guess anything goes with this design team

    Adding weapons that are unique like that electric rifle from 2015 is seriously going to be a big change. It will affects all eras, all factions, and mostly every gamemode. It’s amazing that dice lied about this since the Solo trailer. The 4 weapons per class has been stale already. Also there are enough heroes added to the game. Adding new heroes and hero skins instead of weapons is a waste because most people won’t experience playing as a hero rather than playing as an infantry.

    Iden Versio's TieFighter has a 4th ability!

    ....It just wasn't nearly as cheap as Retri is, so everyone tends to forget that one.

    Ok, I almost posted and hijacked some of the lame never satisfied hero junkie threads. It’s like a hero university housing a hero fleet. It seems like the hero guys will never be satisfied, it’s never enough, an existing hero mode isn’t good enough so change it. Then comes the buff/nerf threads. They use limited resources on an already in game hero modes, only to change it to something else, almost the same btw, and its still not good enough. Again it’s never enough, it’s all short lived, like a junkie on drugs.

    Reason I’m saying this is what could we have by now, how about cargo and dropzone. These are modes if done right will never get old imo, again if some right. We could have new weapons, an all infantry blast with kd, detailed stats, freakin private matches, things that actually improve the game. Instead all we get is more of the same, heroes and more spam. I guess CS was their answer to the infantry crowd. It’s a hero mess imo.

    Yep. Dice is going to spend this games lifecycle chasing the elusive happy balance for Hero’s. Now they’re going to spend another couple months balancing the new HvVs. God forbid creating a new map for Extraction or something.

    I said my peace about removing the Target system but if it means a couple less herolords playing now then....

    There might be holes in there like an Ant-Man popping out of the quantum realm in the Star Wars universe with maybe return of Ezra & Thrawn post-ROTJ by Ahsoka and Sabine and they'll steal the Gauntlet and probably use the World Between Worlds back to Rebels, Rogue One, and the OT to steal the stones like what happened in Endgame. From 1 BBY to 4 ABY, that's about 5 years like the time skip earlier in the game. Then, after that, the Battle of Jakku will probably end up like the Battle of Earth at the end of Endgame. Oh, and maybe the Purrgils will probably be the Wakandan army.

    "Well deserved" credit? What?!? How often does someone write that the praise they receive is well deserved? Their self-admiration is off the charts. You'd think this game was as successful as Modern Warfare 3 with all this boasting.

    They're in a bubble. The only way forward is to smash the bubble by invading their Twitter and Reddit safe spaces. Unfortunately, that would result in being being swarmed on, blocked, etc. For some mysterious reason, a decent portion of the playerbase is drinking the CW content Kool-Aid. Remove the Clone Wars skins, and subpar content is beneath the surface. Without the Star Wars skin, most people wouldn't touch this game. It's a subpar tiered-unit shooter masquerading as an AAA FPS.

    The appeasement of CW fans is the main reason this game has been bad and will continue to be bad.

    I'm tempted to say they purposely made that "praise" comment to see if they could get away with it.

    Idc about the comment he made and I’m more of a trooper guy than hero, but you can’t base your own preferences off the whole game. CW was LEAST represented UNTIL they added everything, would you like to go over all the non CW and the CW material? Becuaee it’s in favor of non CW STILL. They are focusing on CW becuaee it’s just more popular. You had a WHOLE game that was non CW 😂😂😂😂 we get it you like the older movies, let us play with the clones and jedis in peace

    I’m sure you were complaining in the last game for clones right?? 😂😂😂😂 no

    I mean, this game's continuation has to be monitored by Lucasfilm to make sure it fits within the canon and as long it doesn't mess with it, it does have what it takes to be the ultimate Star Wars game fully integrating the entire canon. I think a lot of content from Lucasfilm since post-support of Battlefront 2015 has overridden some of the game standards itself. The blasters brought in this game from TCW and Rebels so far have been accurate as possible to their original sources (different from Battlefront 2015's poorly made CJ-9 Bo-Rifle). The acknowledgment that not just things from the films could be brought in but everything else also, allows for us to get as much content as we want. This game will eventually be a buffet of content to play with from the shows, comics, novels, theme parks, VR from ILMxLab, etc. Those that want Rogue One content so bad will probably be happy when that drops as a season when the Cassian/K-2SO show shows up on Disney+.

    They're in a bubble. The only way forward is to smash the bubble by invading their Twitter and Reddit safe spaces. Unfortunately, that would result in being being swarmed on, blocked, etc. For some mysterious reason, a decent portion of the playerbase is drinking the CW content Kool-Aid. Remove the Clone Wars skins, and subpar content is beneath the surface. Without the Star Wars skin, most people wouldn't touch this game. It's a subpar tiered-unit shooter masquerading as an AAA FPS.

    The appeasement of CW fans is the main reason this game has been bad and will continue to be bad.

    I'm tempted to say they purposely made that "praise" comment to see if they could get away with it.

    Such a personal preference type of thing to say. Would you like to compare the amount of CW content and non content? Even after alllllllll these CW updates there’s still more non CW content in this game so idk what you mean. CW is just more popular whether y’all like CW or not. Please don’t get your personal preference confused with facts.

    I’m sure you were the first one complaining in the last game about no CW content right? Nah 😂😂😂😂😂 CW SAVED this game

    Reason I’m saying this is what could we have by now, how about cargo and dropzone. These are modes if done right will never get old imo, again if some right. We could have new weapons, an all infantry blast with kd, detailed stats, freakin private matches, things that actually improve the game. Instead all we get is more of the same, heroes and more spam. I guess CS was their answer to the infantry crowd. It’s a hero mess imo.

    This is what pains me the most. The things we could have had but don’t-because priorities.
    This could have been THE Star Wars game, but it seems they won’t even try.

    I mean, this game's continuation has to be monitored by Lucasfilm to make sure it fits within the canon and as long it doesn't mess with it, it does have what it takes to be the ultimate Star Wars game fully integrating the entire canon. I think a lot of content from Lucasfilm since post-support of Battlefront 2015 has overridden some of the game standards itself. The blasters brought in this game from TCW and Rebels so far have been accurate as possible to their original sources (different from Battlefront 2015's poorly made CJ-9 Bo-Rifle). The acknowledgment that not just things from the films could be brought in but everything else also, allows for us to get as much content as we want. This game will eventually be a buffet of content to play with from the shows, comics, novels, theme parks, VR from ILMxLab, etc. Those that want Rogue One content so bad will probably be happy when that drops as a season when the Cassian/K-2SO show shows up on Disney+.

    I really hope your optimism will not be misplaced and we will have ongoing updates for this game, but why wait for stuff to be released on tv or movies when we could have so much varied content by now if the attention had not been focused on mainly heroes until now

    People that subscribe to Disney+ and binge the show and Rogue One after and have this game will probably want to play as Cassian or even K-2SO after. I mean, in this scenario, we'll probably get the entire Rogue One crew, Scarif, Jedha (maybe the map from the Marvel Comics arc), some weapons, and elements from the show. Also, since it probably takes place around the time of Rebels, there's probably a chance Fulcrum meets Fulcrum, Cassian meets Ahsoka. It makes the amount of content we can get to be bigger by then, if the developers get more support especially through new hires at the Stockholm site and if EA agrees to bring in DICE LA to join the game. The way I thought of this probably means the Rebels season could be based around the release of that sequel series, after all, and since they survived over the Rogue One crew, there's more stuff to pull from the Marvel Comics and novels especially since Hera's a general during the OT films now.
