Night Ops Event

Replies

  • Great event, but one suggestion, make Day Ops event, I like day maps more than night.
  • SO LOGICAL!

    They want more maps? Let’s create multiple events that TAKE AWAY maps!

  • Can’t remember, so will it just be 5 of the 13 playable GA maps?

    Kashyyyk
    Endor
    Kamino
    Tatooine
    Naboo

    I remember they considered Kamino as part of this event for Halloween because it’s “spooky” and dark. Was Death Star II included?

    I really don’t see why more maps don’t have a night mode. The “event” should actually be “We’re now showing off new night modes on Hoth, Yavin IV, and Jakku!”... Buuuut no

    That would include actual work for them to do some level design adjustments (just lighting). It seems NOW they're in the business of just shuffling around and taking away (putting back in) the assets they've been riding off of for over a year.
  • How about you all come and play Blast? We could use some fresh meat.
    Find me in Blast, Strike, or sometimes GA, usually playing Officer/Specialist/Aerial... u/n cosworth99. #oldguy

    I will say that it would be pretty cool to have new dark maps just for the event. I have no idea how hard that is to do on the development side but a weekend with dark Crait/Starkiller/Jakku/outside Kamino maps would be pretty cool IMO.

    Feel like I am missing some other maps that have outdoor areas that don’t have a dark option yet. Not sure if the Naboo twilight qualifies. Feel free to add to the list.

    Hey devs, is it just a setting (lighting setting) that can be adjusted for this kind of event or does you have to do a full map add/swap?

    Yeah it's basically Kamino, Naboo, Kashyyyk, Tatooine, Endor and Death Star. Not sure why Death Star is in here but ok.
  • This game needs more content in general but especially maps, please avoid night modes until more maps are added like coruscant, mustafar, utapau, Alderaan, Gungan city/battle (Naboo), Jedha, Scarif, Dantooine, Canto Bight, Corellia and so much more!

    More reinforcements would be nice too, commander Cody, Rex, droidekas, more playable native species such as Ewoks, gungans etc... and more!

    Also more Heroes & Villains and don’t forget about their starfighters too! Also events for HVV and Starfighter!

    Lightsaber wielder Heroes: Qui Gon Jinn, Mace Windu, Ashoka Tano, Shaak Ti, Aayla Secura, PLO Koon, Kit Fisto, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Ben Solo Eeth Koth, Baruss Offee, Luminara Unduli, Kanan Jarrus & more!

    Blaster/range Heroes:
    Padme Amadala, Poe Dameron, Rose, Vice Admiral Holdo, , Jyn Erso, Biggs Darklighter (starfighter) Wedge Antilles (starfighter) & more!

    Lightsaber wielded/ Melee villains:
    Asajj Ventress, Dryden Vos, Maul (skin) Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother, Seventh Sister, Darth Sideous, and more!

    Blaster/ranged Villains:
    Tarkin, Krennic, Snoke, Aurra Sing, Jango Fett, General Hux, Greedo, Jaaba, and More!

    So the feedback saying that taking away maps is bad just got ignored?

    Wouldn't be the first thing to be ignored would it bud?
    The thing that can not be named that swaps you into empty lobby's has been and always will be, along with map glitches where players are still allowed to go, and lag Issues.

    Worked last time, was really great seeing that pinned thread pop up saying all maps will be playable after that pathetic attempt to try to get us to accept 4 map rotations.

    I actually can't play blast, not consistently at least. I can play maybe 3 consecutive games before EoR MM puts me into an empty server that never fills.

    It is legitimately curious how, by now, these people know exactly what they need to do to make the game an actual AAA title, but how they just appear to outright refuse to do so out of.. Lord knows why.

    Spite. They're doing it out of sheer spite.

    Microtransactions didn't quite pan out the way they'd hoped for this one; they had their grubby little paws slapped for it around the world; nobody's bought into their blatant, shoddy and dishonest attempt to sway the gaming world away from single player campaign style gaming and onto monetised-to-hell 'live services'...

    And they've reacted like spoilt, petulant children who didn't get their own way, and have punished the community for it so that we all remember the negative, disappointing experience of this game and just sit quiet while they rob us in plain sight the next time around rather than go through all this again.

    I'm currently playing on mid-afternoon Endor

    There's some fog though so I guess that's extra spooky

    EDIT: Now playing on sunny Endor

    I've removed some derailing comments, carry on.
  • I guess starting a mega thread (unless i missed it) on what the players would like to see as events would be a strange request would it?

    I know there are posts and replies from people but why not an official one. Keep it to whats available rather than daft ideas for whats not.

    I still think rotation of Ewok hunt and jet pack cargo wouldn't be too bad if they are set up right (jet pack had timer and cargo marker issues which i believe was sorted). Might encourage some to re play them.
    Before any one bemoans it, it is additional rather than taking away, which is what most of the replies in this thread are about.

    Maybe we just got lucky, but last night we're playing from 8-10pm something and HvV had day maps still

    NIGHT OPS EVENT
    Start Time: Feb 15th - 23:01 UTC
    End Time: Feb 18th - 05:00 UTC

    All modes will feature a “Dark Mode” map rotation during this event. Additionally, Assault modes will have Fast Spawn activated. And to top things off, Double XP will be awarded during the whole event!

    Yay, my favorite event. Thanks!

    I enjoyed the Halloween event a lot. Was it my imagination or was some ground fog added during the Halloween event?
  • Got in a quick look at SA this morning, can confirm that Double XP is live in the mode.
  • Limiting maps again? ... OK I'm going to play other games

    : D
  • Double XP is up, for whatever that is worth. Incidentally, all my matches have been in daytime.
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

  • DEVs: bring in Annakin - so I can see how he handles a blaster to the head? The teaser is incredible... can't wait to see him in action with Kenobi... and if you improve lightsaber stamina / mechanics I'll definitely return to HvV
    BTW - thank you for the extra credit and night maps on Tatooine & Endor (pls update Hoth and Geonosis to at least a sunset).

  • Ooh talk that sass, carry on.

    To be honest there's no reason to be playing this thing until content drops. Dooku was good for about a week until you realise it's the same boring modes and maps... but now we can use night scopes! Despite them being mods for probably the most inappropriate weapons in the game, (scoped Cr-2) like who designed this? :smiley:

    Don't know who designed but odds are he isn't on the game anymore since not a single new weapon has been made.

    Kinda weird none of the long range rifles have night scopes though? Assault or specialist.
    Maybe I've misidentified weapon classes...
    SMG identifies as a sniper rifle?
  • Thermal scopes up, troopers! I'm getting a reading on enemy units headed this way. They can't hit us if they can't see us. Blasters ready!
  • Is Geonosis at night available?
  • Loving no spawn timer in SA.

    It seems so obvious. I love the night time maps, and would love it if every applicable map had a night time mode so events wouldn't restrict content.

  • Gonna be the odd ball out but glad we have this event cuz I know not going to get stuck in a 15 VS 20 Crait or Geo maps.
    At this point I am tired of those two maps the Kylo and Phas event made sure that I will get burned out on those maps and funny thing about that event I was DS cuz you could only pick 2 ppl while LS about choose from 3-7 ppl so ppl drop out of DS and hope they get into a game that was LS and all I did was replaced the ppl who dropped out of those 2 maps.
  • Your events are so boring and unreliable. Not once have I see Kamino. Just like back on Halloween the Kamino map is never in the map rotation. How are any of you even employed? The same fools who don't allow a lightsaber to damage turrets, Crait generators, or ground vehicles. The same hacks who prevent the LIUV from dealing the og lethal collision damage that a multi ton armored vehicle should/would. Funny how a speeder bike barely going 5 mph insta kills any trooper yet an LIUV weighing several tons does not. I'm glad that I won't be purchasing the future copy and paste BF2 game that your now mediocre EA gaming company will one day try passing off as BF3. How much did you pay all of the people who praised Geonosis? The map is bantha poodoo just like all the bugs, glitches, and illogical aspects to Battlefront2.

    Does liking night maps detract from the fact they cut out half the rotation for this **** event?

  • Playing less, that's for sure. Dont care for endor and tatooine to begin with.
  • The event should have been adding night versions to maps that’s didnt have them, not taking them away. It’s the most absurd way of faking a “live service” I’ve ever seen.

    This could be an attempt to get us to accept rotations that don't feature all the maps again...

  • The absence of the spawn timer has made matches more enjoyable for me.

    Hopping right back into a star fighter is great.

    Also running a flanking route in GA and actually having back up spawn in behind me has really upped my surviveability (many thanks to all that have saved my hide tonight).

    It seems matches are a lot closer without the timer as well.

    SA no timer needs to be the standard
    GA I think there are cases for both, but overall no timer has been more enjoyable.

    I don't understand how they are even able to open a thread to present such of absurdity. Should be not easy to work in a company like that...

    - Hey man, open a thread about an event with less map.
    - boss...do you think it's a good idea? There is already not a lot of maps, people are complaining about such bad idea
    - shut ut man, you are paid for executing order, we don't give a **** to our customer
    - OK boss, that's an awesome idea in fact

    Thanks to the dream team

    Night mode is appropriate as this rotation will put you to sleep! Lol the maps are actually awesome but to limit it to such few maps is a disservice to anyone that spends any time on this game.
