Are maps really gonna be taken away again?

Prev1

It appears that the maps available will be restricted again this month.

I don't think I need to explain how reducing the content in a game that is already kind of stale is bad but Here are some threads but just in case here are some threads that should give a good idea of how the community thinks of removing maps.

Please don't take maps away from the game.

  • So basically, if even playing at all, you're limited to HvV or the smaller gamemodes during that time. Gotcha.

    Because screw putting oneself through the hell that is Kamino or Naboo more than absolutely necessary.

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

  • Guys, honestly some maps that are out of era favor the hero more. I did not want to play Obi on Geonosis because he tends to die faster, I wanted to play him on DS2 because that's where his strength lied. Don't lock maps please.

  • I read the Dark Mode as being night maps for all maps, which I thought would be pretty cool. I’ve now just realised how stupid an assumption that was. Doh! :(

  • And all of them have falls in them so expect long HvV games
  • I can't even enjoy night maps because the HUD is so dang bright I can't see anything. I constantly get killed by players hidden behind icons and crap. Super annoying

    Clear enough?

    You have to consider the other people playing the game as well. They wouldn't be doing these events if they weren't attracting more players. Take Heroes Unleashed for example: lots of threads on here talking about how it's ruining the game and all that other stuff, but that's not what they use to determine whether a playlist like that or events like these get implemented into the game.

    they obviously have access to how many people play a certain playlist at a certain time, so if Heroes Unleashed has over 100,000 players in the span of one or two weeks and there's a few threads on here with a couple hundred people complaining about it, which do you think they're going to consider real feedback?

  • If you must do another “night” event then put the effort in and turn the lights off on a map that doesn’t yet have a night version and ADD it to the rotation. Effort. We like it.

  • We all know that voice of customer is something completely out of their values in this company...
  • They really need to leave the original rotation open too, when they do these things...
  • What? Is the sky getting darker? never mind..
  • I really wish "night time" was available for all maps. Considering it is done for a few of them, it strikes me as a no brained tondonit for all of them.

    Yeah, that's honestly all they have to do, turn the lights off to make the maps darker. Turn the brightness down, but don't put the same old maps on rotation all the time.

    Last time this night event happened they kept in the maps that previously had night time versions and the others got the boot. So awesome. How cool. Much iconic.

  • They're probably just going to put night modes into every map.

    That's best case scenario for the event.

  • Oh look more weekends when I'm gonna be playing other games.

    Now that there's an actual rotation again, there's definitely no reason for the clown wors one in particular.

    The player can search until you find a PT era map, and then quit after Kashyyyk (last in rotation). Why delete other maps?

    The current rotation is how it should always be if there is never gonna be an era selector or server browser.

    Well, I can't imagine why people would like fewer maps being available.

    That's what the first time they did this should have been, the Halloween event but given that they didn't add new night versions last time odds are they aren't doing it now.

    Geonosis every fourth map in HvV

    I just don't understand the point. Immersion isn't a priority right? So why clownbusters maps for Anakin release? Is it because he's discounted price-wise? Just discount him across all eras for the weekend.

    Is it because of the elite 501stthrd and Croissant legions? I suppose they want to let people sport the new outfits more often when they launch, not sure it's worth a weekend of less maps.

    Why don't they include something like 2015 had where you can search for a specific map and essentially enter the rotation wherever you want? Wouldn't that allow for practically the same thing for those that want it?

    That makes 3 of us.
    Twilight Hoth was fun. A twilight Hoth GA would be good, something different. The DSII, one of my favorite maps to play, will be missing for both events. Even the DS II could do with a power outage in some sections, red/emergency lighting, intermittent flashing of the lights, reduced lighting.
    The game needs new maps, not events that subtract from what is available.

  • Seriously I think 99% auf the player base dont want to play only Clone Wars-era maps for one weekend. DICE we need more maps, not less maps!

  • Yeah, those events significantly reduce my playing time.

    Heroes Unleashed event: I'll play 20 hours in 3 days (if I know in advance and can schedule it)

    No Event/random BP Event: I'll play 12 hours in 7 days.

    Limited content Events: I'll play 2 hours or less in 3 days.

    Starkiller Base could've been a much bigger map tbh.. I'd have liked it if it legit started in the woods and 2 phases later you made it up to the base platform.

    It feels really small for some reason. I think the fact that you start in a big open area but end inside causes that feeling for me.

    More is Less.

    Seems like SWBF15, just in reverse.
    Where are the new maps? Could not get ported SWBF15 maps because why, the community wanted DICE to create brand new maps, Mustafar, Jedha, Dagobah, Corellia, Coruscant, Eadu, Mimban, Mygeeto to name a few. Where are they?
    Can't convert campaign maps to mp, which is a waste as they are some beautiful maps. DICE can't port SWBF 15 maps, also some beautiful maps. DICE seems to have difficulty in releasing new content (maps) unless it is clone skins or broken heroes. Even the **** mode appears delayed. Sorry but I don't consider these events as new content. Just start porting SWBF15 maps like Sullust, Scarif and the DS to name a few. This game doesn't need events or emote wheels, the game needs maps if it is to have any replay value.
    Enough with the restrictive map rotations and provide the community new maps.

    Either do this or just update BF2015 and integrate all the DLC playlists in with the base game.

    It makes no sense to have thousands of people pay good money for map packs like the Scarif and Death Star DLC only to have it unplayable a couple years later just because they each have their own playlist.

    I constantly try to find games in them and get messages by ppl in scarce lobbies about how **** they are that they can't play something they paid for when there are clearly still a lot of people who play BF2015.

    Like you said, a waste of a lot of really good maps.
