    Heroes are being unleashed in Galactic Assault once again. During this weekend event, heroes can be unlocked for 50% off their normal battle point cost.

    Just to be clear, is this actually another HU event? Will all Heroes/Villains be available during all phases?

    The description only mentions the discount.

    Thanks!

    Is it just me, or does the Count look like Steven Segal here?

    Add some sunglasses and the requisite black shoe polish hair coloring and then I’ll render my opinion.

    I’m not near a PC with Photoshop right now, so I’ll wait patiently for someone else to run with this.

  • Should last a week not just weekends....
  • awesome!
  • I'm thinking the same as @Omniscient that it doesn't specify that more heroes than normal will be available, so it won't be a true HU event, just a standard reduced cost event as it is outlined. Can you clarify for us @EA_Tom ?

    Gotta say. I enjoy this for two to three matches then since I can’t play regular GA, I end up playing a different game for the rest of the weekend.

    Really wish they created a separate menu option and dedicated servers for weekend or weekly events. Let us play the normal modes we purchased.

    They do, 99% of the time. When it's not HU event.

  • @EA_Tom

    So is it Heroes Unleashed or is it just 50% off the cost but everything else is normal?

    Can confirm that it isn't Heroes Unleashed although we do hear the communities love for that event, this event is 50% off the cost of heroes with everything else being at normal/default Battle Point pricing.

    Thank you for the clarification and yes, many of us would love to see the REAL Heroes Unleashed return. Thanks!
  • good lord the complaining never ends.
  • Starfighter Assault Heroes Unleashed maybe?

    I would image the screen freezing up completely if that event was even tried.

    Bummer... Will have to tell my friends, “nevemind”.

    Not mad or anything but half priced heroes don’t really help anything. People will still be extra careful with their heroes because they will know that getting killed will mean no more heroes the rest of the game unless you camp on the spawn screen which actually hurts gameplay.

    Only way it works is when lots of heroes are available on the cheap. When that happens, you can be really aggressive knowing that soon enough you can be a hero again if you want. Then there is no camping and heroes go after heroes relentlessly.
  • I would like to see an Event that doesn't decrease BP cost for Heroes but there's no cap for heroes either. Essentially, earn the necessary BP's, reward is a hero. I would at least like to try it out.

    One word. No. The better team will have more kills more BP, 8 heroes, stopping other team getting any kills. No kills no BP no hero. It will bad.

    For future reference, I suggest multiple in-house members review each posting before being made public. The confusion surrounding this event would have never arisen had the following phrase not been uttered in the original post:

    Heroes are being unleashed in Galactic Assault once again...”

    This was a poor choice of wording for something that is turning out not to be HU.

    Has an official dev come out and said whther it is or isnt?
  • I've played 8 heroes vs 8 heroes from phase 1

  • Definitely standard HU. I had a typical HU night.

    Tatooine - neither side got past phase 1 in just a chaotic mess.

    Death star - see above

    Endor - I grabbed finn in phase 1 and me, han and leia stayed together and rolled all the way thru phase 3.

    It's a good weekend to level your lesser used heroes. That's about it.

  • Wooohooo.... again.


    They said it was just gonna be discounted heroes which was actually going to make getting a hero and spawn screen camping worse.

    Good news, should be on tonight.
  • HU was 75 percent off bps as I recall, but there are definitely more heroes available. I only played phase 1 of kamino and it was a hero fest, nobody playing the objective.
  • Looks like ga is unplayable now.
