  • That looks cool, or at least better than the emote wheel😂
  • "One of the key goals for what we outline below is to bring you a lot more variety and choice to your Clone Trooper experience while retaining this authenticity."
    Proceeds to mix both phase 1 and phase 2 armours. WHY!?!?
    Apart from that, this is looking like a really good update, just a shame they decided to mix the phases. (Gave on one side, took from the other)
  • Everything sounds great, except I'm not sure how I feel about having phase 1 and phase 2 clones on the same map, I like them being map specific armours

    Otherwise, looking forward to everything else
  • I forgotten the ARF troopers

  • So I am going to buy all the skins and set each of my troopers as different phases, just to make everyone mad.

    Dice love the update on paper. See when it comes out. Can't wait...
  • Ok now we want Captian Rex as a hero!
    Or dual pistols as a new primary weapon!

    Ps you understand im now only playing 1st gen clones.
    All other game i shall leaveth
  • I am fairly sure I have seen Phase 1 and 2 troopers together in the Clone Wars. Plus how is an enormous army going to phase in brand new armour all at the same time? Can't wait for the update.
  • This is the Battlefront Community in a nutshell. Get new content, still not satisfied. Go play Fortnite then.

  • i still cannot believe that devs worked months on 'cosmetics' like hologram/main menu/skins/emote wheel instead of playable content. honnestly they did a great job but it is really not was i expected . i doesn't add fun to play . i hope that the new mode will be release in march . GA and extraction maps should be next the additions to the game.

    Nope, never. The Phase I clone armour was completely replaced by the Phase II about halfway through the Clone Wars and this was shown in TCW when all clones now wore Phase II in season 4. What some people might be thinking of are the ARC Troopers introduced in season 3 who were specially trained clones that wore prototype Phase II helmets but the number of ARCs was very small and only Echo and Fives were regularly seen on the battlefield. Also, when Phase II was in usage, Rex wore a special Phase 1.5 helmet.

    At least they're not as bad as the Reddit rabble. Those folks are practically worshipping this change and acting like it's the greatest thing ever, so I guess that's why DICE listens to them more than to us.

  • What !? This is outrageous. It's unfair. How can you be Immersed with Phase 1 and Phase 2 alongside each other.
    This has to be changed, it's worse than helmet-less stormtroopers on SWBF1. For the love of continuity and happy fans please please please change this before its too late. I'm not the only one here that is saying this look on youtube comments you'll find the same thing. I'm all for change but not this #NoPhaseMixing

    Well, Charlemagne explained it, or tried since it's related to silent changes to canon:
    -41st Elite Corp: Kashyyyk, default (white-green)
    -181st Armor Division: Naboo, default (white-red)
    -87th Sentinel Corps: Kashyyyk, camouflage, scout helmet

    In words of Charlemange: "Two legions were deployed onto Kashyyyk (new canon). One looks like the current appearance and one looks more like a scout/recon trooper".

    Oh Jesus, if that's true then this is so ridiculous and I cannot understand why Lucasfilm have felt the need to do this.
    The 41st Elite Corps are not the DICE-made Kashyyyk troopers. Their standard non-camo Phase II armour looks like this and when they were deployed to Kashyyyk they primarily wore Scout armour because it was essentially their jungle armour in the same way that real-world militaries have different uniforms for desert, urban, jungle, etc.
    Just because DICE screwed up and had to cobble together some armour markings because people complained about the shinies being the default on every map, they've now forced Lucasfilm to make completely unnecessary changes to well-established canon.

    You're saying that Lucas Film changed its canon base to fit in a game?
    I'll take it as a sarcastic comment.

    Exactly. Making the phases separately selectable is a complete waste of time and effort for something that I doubt anybody ever asked for when they should've been doing something more worthwhile.

    A game that only has these skins because DICE had to add them at the last minute because people complained about shinies being the default, which they're now ironically bringing back. These were only meant to be placeholders but now DICE have gone to the unnecessary effort of having Lucasfilm make them canon so they can make it seem as though there's more legion choice when in reality it's just because DICE messed up the clone appearances during development.

  • Honestly, I usually just read through these posts for entertainment, but damn.... a lot of butt hurt people out there. There is nothing wrong with having your own opinion on the matter but no need to bash others because of theirs. If you want others to respect you and your opinions, learn to respect them and their opinions. ESPECIALLY if they are different than yours

    I personally am not too jazzed about the cross phase clones, nor was i fan of multiple legions on a single map. I do wish we could return to having the correct legion on each map with phase appropriate armor. But there is a HUGE demand for customization in games lately and sadly you can't do much customization in Star Wars without breaking authenticity. The Empire, First Order, and CES have literally ZERO options for customization, due the their respective leaders not allowing any. The Rebellion and Resistance, being gorilla fighters, have infinite possibilities. The average Clone wore the standard armor with their standard Legion markings. Very few were able to customize their armor and/or their markings, usually due to rank and/or as a commendation for deeds done. If we want authenticity, then ONLY the Rebellion and Resistance would have customization. You MIGHT be able to get away with an entire legion of clones with different markings but that would be pushing authenticity to its limit.

    We can have customization or we can have authenticity. Can't have both in the same game.
  • I think its fine, I'm just glad they are adding and expounding on the game, it doesn't have to be perfect.
  • Wish they would show or talk about whether they also fixed the 327th skins and removed the red stripes on the armor and made it more accurate to what the 327th should actually look like.

    Agree with another comment on here about what this is going to mean for the jetpack trooper reinforcement? They going to stay the exact same as it is now or will they get any change to the customization of their skins....or are they getting shiny skins?

    Wish they still had the down vote button in the thread. I like all the clone trooper customization options they are now bringing to the game.

    I just want to know if the jetpack clone trooper is going to get some love too.

    im a "clown wars" fan myself and im starting to agree I mean look at these clowns complaining about phase mixing they make clone wars fans look bad.

  • As a clone trooper expert, I'd like to point out that the 501st is a "Legion" and not a "Battalion". Just a nitpick. Phase mixing is something I'm not looking forward to. Everything else sounds pretty cool!
  • Nooooooo!

    Rainbow clone troopers everywhere👎
    Phase 1&2 mixed👎
    My priority list:

    1. Fix Split screen mode bugs
    2. Fix bugs
    3. Bigger play area for Duel mode
    4. More love for Starfighter modes
    5. First Person only mode
  • This seems like a great update, it isn't perfect, I for one thought we would have deeper customization the way they were talking when they said they delayed the game mode, I thought we would be able to do stuff like, for example, wear the specialist visor up like Bly did in the movie but all in all it seems like it will be a good update.
  • I'm looking forward to the updated skins and the addition of the 501st and CG. I still think it's very confusing on these additional legions they added (which I think are the already in-game default ones). My one thing I want to know is if the 41st are getting the Scout Trooper helmet or not. It would seem the 91st are getting the Neyo/BARC helmet (though the typical phase II helmet is acceptable because it was used in TCW show).

    I am hoping that some of the officers depending on legion will also have Pauldrons, as some officers do have and some don't.

    What I also want to know (for the future) is will they add even more legions. If we're getting Ahsoka later on, the 332nd would be another great addition to the collection :).

    I'm okay with letting phase II be playable on Kamino (as they were on Kamino in season 6 of TCW) so I don't fine the phase I/II interchanging as big of an issue per say, though I will say it'll look odd having the mix, but that's the least of my concerns.

    We can have customization or we can have authenticity. Can't have both in the same game.

    Actually, you can easily do both. Take a look at the "Clone Customisation" link in the sig. I made this at a time when we were still waiting for clone customisation to arrive and envisioned there being planet-specific legions. In so doing I thought, "how could there be enough variety to the different legions so as not to make it boring", and as such I made 4 different skins per class as an example of possible options; 1 default and 3 additional choices. This could've been a way to have authenticity and customisation without breaking immersion.
    Obviously we didn't get planet-specific legions, but even in the current setup of rainbow troopers, this could still have worked. There are 8 legions in my Clone Customisation concept with just the 104th and 91st missing so that could've been 10 legions for DICE to use. Add to that the 3 skin choices for each class that I made as examples, and you now have at least 22 possible skins purchases with plenty of variety; each legion being available as a pack and each skin for each class being separately purchaseable.
    The fact is that DICE could've maintained a level of authenticity here, but they haven't. It's most likely caused by their diminished development team, but it still doesn't make it seem any less cheap.

    That comment lacks creativity my friend, I wonder if you've seen JackThorns posts which show the hundreds of ways we could have creative, FUN customization without just dumping everything together and rinsing it around (which is what some players think is the ONLY way a SW game can have "fun playability").

  • I'll be clear, the rest of this update looks AMAZEBALLS. So good. I've been super excited about the customization, and most of it looks even better than I had expected. In some ways it's astounding how much they've listened to us.

    But then they had to add in phase-mixing. Sell us something we'd already had. It's like having an amazing multi-course meal laid out in front of you, only to find that every dish is slathered in black licorice gravy. Looks great, could have done without the terrible gravy.
  • At this rate I want Vader helmets for stormtrooper skin customization....a true RAINBOW Clone skin that has every color slapped all over it....Palpatine in Snoke golden robes....blue saber choices for all Sith characters....

    Oh Dice....do you want an ugly stew of a game or NOT? By the end of development this game is only going to be reminiscent of having Star Wars detail.

    Retitled the game to Star Wars: CLUSTERFRONT........and it'll all make sense! That title only tells you the game is just meant to be GOOFY fun and spamming and you'll never hear arguments about your strange choices ever again.

    I would not have thought to mix phase 1 and 2 troopers. I think that mixing them is a bad idea. At this point though, more content is better, and this is really good content.

    I think accuracy is important and while I do agree with all of you who keep mentioning that the mixing of phase 1 and 2 is a bad decision, this update will not end the world.

    Good job with the new content, and thank you for fixing old skins. Keep up the good work, but consider unmixing the phases.

    I, personally, like very much this stuff (Im saying this because all of those who are saying that their personal opinion is 'the real fan/authentic/authorized community voice', speaking like 'WE dont want this, WE didnt ask for that, WE are dealing with..., and so on).

    This game IS NOT a reacreation of the films. This game is where you can enjoy some scenarios and parts seen on the films playing any character you want in those. The more characters and options for the players, the best.

    Im a die hard Star Wars fan, and I understand that some fans want to see an exact simulation of everything on max detail. But sorry, this is not a simulation or a recreation. And there are A LOT of players that simply are not die hard fans, and many others that even dont care about the 'iiiimmmeeersioooon' or detail; the game is for everyone, not just for us THE TRUE FANS.

    Try to enjoy the game, and support it to get BETTER MECHANICS and BUGS FIXED, and let the ppl enjoy it their own way...

    OR QUIT (and quit quiet please).

  • For people worrying about Phase1/Phase2 mixing: relax

    Phase 1 and Phase 2 didn't happen overnight! It wasn't like the republic decided to recall every single trooper to refit them. It took MONTHS

    I am actually looking forward to this option. Now i just wish storm troopers and FO troopers got armored officers :neutral:

    Where were all these pro phase-mixing people before? I never saw threads requesting it.
    It also seems to be all the noobs and lurkers who've had accounts for a few years but never actually post anything in main discussion page.
    Makes me wonder if these are troll accounts or EA shills.
    Don't forget all the guys trying to shut down criticism by saying things like, "It's just a game, nobody cares about it, it's not important."

    When the only way to defend the change you've made it is by name-calling and arguing that video games don't matter, You might want to think about what you've done.

    bruh, you guys are shutting down criticism of liking mixing phases in a sandbox game by calling anyone who likes it shills and ea paid posters, Get the kark out of here. I used to run as a scarif trooper because honestly i loved the way the armor looked, i didnt care if it wasnt canon, and i sure as hell didnt care because some random dude in a match cried about muh immersion. If they allowed us to use snow trooper armor on tatooine id use it too, because i honestly think its a better looking armor, and i wouldnt give a hutts sack if some dude cried about it.

    Imagine being this mad about immersion in a game where the average trooper bunny hops across the battlefield not worrying about ammo, and pulling thermal detonators out of his butt and being able to beat a jedi into the ground like a schoolyard bully

    Exactly. For some i guess Dice just cant do no wrong.

    As someone whose been around since BF2015, its funny to imagine what BF2 would be like had these praisers been around and there had not been critics. So much of this game from the campaign to the classes, to the 3 eras to the droping of the microtransactions were a response from.... CRITICISM!
