BEST Idea for an event eva

I think this could be a great idea, much better than heroes unleashed and eras. Possibly the best event battlefront has ever had....

Lets have a no officer weekend.
Then all us regular players that work our buts off for heroes can have a fair chance at getting a hero, instead of getting beaten by that officer with just 2 assists to his name, earned through flash grenades. Yesterday i had 10 kills as a assault, 2nd on the leader board to an officer with zero eliminations and 1000 more score. I was on the objective the whole time. Not even joking. So dice, if your not gonna nerf the officer properly and give everyone a fair chance, please at least let us experience what the game could be like if good players got rewarded for being good, instead of bad players for being bad.

Now please note officers that run squad shield and take objectives, you guys are legends, and excluded from judgement.

Reasons to have it:

Good players might get the hero for once. Therefor balance will be better.
We might actually have heros playing the objective instead of camping at the back of the map with their hard earned 'NOT' bossk.
Games will be more close.
Scrubs will be put in there place for once, at the bottom of the leader board.

Now i'm looking forward to all the officer scrubs replies.
Let the officer scrub cries roll in.......

    LOL, the repulsor brings balance to the force.

    I believe the officer bp gain from both battle command and presence is unacceptable, but let's be honest, every class has some properties that may be viewed as op or annoying. Assault's overall decency combined with the best regenerating abilities and pocket oneshot shotgun, CQC heavy 200 health plus 300 health shield combined with spray and pray weapons and ''in your face'' type impact nade and specialist with it's melee, stealth, shield, regeneration and most importantly the best weapon in the game in form of a280cfe with burst mode (why is this weapon not used by 80% of the lobby is beyond me). In battlefront, as in any other game or life, achieving satisfaction is impossible.

    So true, the other things you mention are just annoying. But when you straight up have zero eliminations and outscore an assault on a 10 player kill streak, that is ****, like how much skill does it take to sit in a corner and spam commands. I always laugh when the officer gets a hero before me then kills him in 30 seconds and i've still got at least twice as many kills. One weekend lmao, I bet all the officers would be below 10th place.

    Gotta post this for the lols.

    These Events are cheap theatrics to appease the player base away from the lack of what was promised as a live service.

    Yup trooper play is essential in GA

    Will you then answer why hero abilities that were supposed to have been fixed in last update, still don’t work?

    Or, this idea just isn’t very good? Most of those ‘Officer mains’ will just switch to the next best point gainer and it’ll be a run to the hero races, only slightly different. The problem here isn’t the officer, it’s the heroes(once again).

    Now a ‘trooper only’ event... that I could get behind. No heroes or reinforcements, just troops and vehicles.


    There is no best point gain after officer. I can easily outscore any other class with kills as an assault, but not an officer that knows all the cheap tactics, they don't even need to shoot anyone. Of course it's a hero race, but perhaps if good players that didn't play officer had access to heroes more games I would win. I can't count the number of times we've lost on naboo cause some officer farmed bossk then sat on the stairs second phase just throwing his gas bombs and not pushing the objective while his team were inside trying they're hardest.

    My point is I can outgun the same officer multiple times in a row, then next round they switch to my team, and beat me to the hero by doing nothing much, so the bad player gets rewarded. Yes they're supporting, but they get more points for sitting in a corner as support than playing the game.

    Exactly, let's be honest we would miss the bugs, so cause they're so kind they give us more content (bugs)

    Not disagreeing with any of that, we’ve all seen it/done it/been through it.. just doesn’t sound like a good idea for an event or something they’d even consider.

    I know but just like complaining about bugs is a waste of time cause they don't get fixed, might as well have a laugh at the whole situation.
  • Officer is a great class to play. You feel great buffing everyone's weapons, you can stick a turret down and leg it when people are getting mown down around you knowing you are getting that objective. If they changed the star cards (in the same way they have just adjusted the Heroes cards) so that battle points were equal throughout the classes then there would be no problem.

    This 100 percent they should be a little less kill happy more support but balanced so they don't get more points for support than kills.

    Continues to add 9 heroes to each side in the events.
    Battlefront II has a 45.8% chance of success.

  • I still think a “trooper only” GA would be a fun experiment. See how the balance shifts when there is no heroes or maybe even no enforcers.

    But I know the rest of the community would think that “limiting content” should not be considered an event.

    Not anymore. Trooper play is so essential that we've had the same blasters since launch. One of the best trooper modes, Extraction has 2 maps.
    Devs are more concerned with making sure Annies cartoon cheeks mesh with his movie nose and comic book mouth.

    Hahaha, that was a blatant lie or anakin wouldn't have been released in his current state. Trooper play clearly doesn't matter.
