  • So, what "ruined" the game in the first place was the lootboxes. Now you are giving us an awesome lootbox.




    Fun.

    Except this 'lootbox' isn't tied to the progression system or random. You know exactly what you are getting. So, it's nothing like what was released in the first place.

    @F8RGE Will the default Clone skins for Naboo and Kashyyyk be available as appearances for free if we want to use them in any map?

    The Naboo default skins are now called the 181st Armored Division, and the Kashyyyk defaults are now the 41st Ranger Platoon. They are available as free appearances for use on any map.

    Jeevuss Space-Criest. You had ONE JOB on this ship.

    I was ready. I was ready to thoroughly like this part of the update. It was something we'd asked for - two things we'd asked for. Correct legion appearances, and armored officers. It was a softball pitch, low-hanging fruit. I was all ready to throw praise at you, and buy all the skins.

    But you just HAD to put something ridiculous in there. Didn't you.

    Mixing phase 1 and phase 2. No one asked for it. I mean ever. No one. But what the Malachor. Why not. You've already given us games with Grievous on Starkiller Base and Kylo Ren on Geonosis, a rainbow motley patchwork of whatever friggin Legion some random players feel like having. Why not. Why not just mix the phases up, too. It didn't look stuuuuuupid enough yet.

    Why the hell would you allow phase 1 and 2 on the same map. It makes no sense. Mistake
    Clone troopers did mix phases, because some didn't get Phase 2 at the same time others did, and some troopers preferred to keep their Phase 1 armor.
    ... um, what? So your defense of this foolishness is to propose that EVERY single Clone Wars match in this game somehow takes places in the 3-week transition period between phases, and that some troopers in the battle got their improved armor but some had theirs lost by Space Amazon? Pull the other one, it plays taps.
    I'm honestly surprised that people are complaining about a small detail like this, and not the fact that you can mix like 5 or 6 different legions of clone troopers on 1 map.
    We are fully and clearly complaining about both, trust us. They took awful and made it awfuller.

    They had ONE JOB on this ship...

    This is my thoughts precisly! EA/DICE,,, YOU FAILED EPIC! THIS IS CLEAR EVIDENCE THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAD THE STAR WARS LICENSE! INCOMPETENT!!
  • Nothing, They're nothing. They don't exist. Lucasfilm has just given DICE some official sounding names for the Naboo and Kashyyyk skins and have seemingly changed the name of the 41st Elite Corps, but since the multiplayer of this game isn't canon, these legions aren't either.

    So do the movies and the TV show contain all the clone trooper divisions ever created? If you don't like the Dice-created divisions for some fanboyish reasons, don't play them.

    Yes, yes they do. DICE could've just as easily done away with these non-canon legions completely and replaced them with the shinies as default rather than spend time consulting with Lucasfilm to give them official sounding names. I doubt anybody would really have missed them and I also doubt we'll ever see them appear in any canon material, so then what was the point? Seems like a complete waste of time and a totally pointless change to make.
    But it's not just about the fact that they've gone to the pointless effort of naming legions nobody cared about, they're also making the different phases purchaseable and therefore playable on any map. So not only are we still dealing with the scurge of multi-legion rainbow troopers, but now we also have to deal with mutli-phase troopers as well, seeing Phase Is on Kashyyyk and Phase IIs on Geonosis. It's a cheap attempt to get people to spend all their saved up credits by giving them more skins to buy in the cheapest and laziest way possible of giving players more purchaseable skins and I guarantee it's not going to work out for them. People will still hold on to their credits and there's not going to be a sudden rise in MTXs with loads of people buying up all legions in each phase of armour.

    I think it's simply a matter of player-freedom. From the beginning DICE's priority has been having every component be canon, while these components can be mixed-and-matched in non-canon ways, almost like a simulation.

    In the end, even as a die-hard Star Wars fan who wants accuracy and immersion, I feel it's just not smart to limit the options of players for the sake of accuracy.

    This has got nothing to do with player freedom. It has all the hallmarks of a game that is struggling to stay afloat and simply employing a cheap and lazy tactic to add "new content" by taking what was previously a standard part of the game and making it purchaseable with in-game credits and MTX currency.
    There are plenty of other ways that DICE could've improved choice when it comes to Clone Trooper armour without going down this road and both myself and @JackTHorn have shown this time and time again. But even though we've both accepted that some of our ideas and concepts simply aren't feasible with the way this game is built, the ones that are are still a darn sight better than what DICE is doing here. So clearly what's left of the BFII team are just phoning it in at this point if this is the best they can come up with in terms of improving player choice.
    P.S. People can feel free to come at me all they like for this, but I don't care if they prefer Phase I to Phase II or vice versa, Phase I clones do not belong on Kashyyyk any more than Phase II clones belong on Geonosis. I don't play this type of game to play with digital toys in a sandbox environment, I play it to feel like I'm part of an actual battle from the Star Wars canon and all this inaccurate, immersion-breaking nonsense is ruining that experience.

    I agree EA DICE is incompentent and disrespectful!

    Back when Lucasarts were making STAR WARS games things were great and they actually respected STAR WARS.. But all thanks to Kathleen Kennedy and her sick politics we get this! A corporation who clearly do not respect the brand at all. Shame Shame Shame! EA! Shame!

  • Lootbox fiasco was way overblown. I’ll take lootboxes over this “live service” any day if it means the game gets consistent updates and steady content drops. I don’t personally care if somebody has the ability to buy a few cards or weapons so long as the same is available with in game credits earned through gameplay. But that’s just my opinion.

    Technically, lootboxes and live-services go hand-in-hand. Lootboxes are what fund a live-service.

    INCOMING TRANSMISSION

    The topic of Clone Trooper armour is one that we’ve seen a lot of feedback on across the last few months and back in December last year we mentioned that we were making some changes to the Clone Trooper appearance system.
    We’ve heard a lot about authenticity when it comes to Clone Troopers and how they look, which is why we have been working closely with our friends at Lucasfilm to ensure that each legion is representative of how you would expect them to look.

    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.
    DEFAULT APPEARANCES

    As part of this update, Clone Troopers will have a new default appearance. The frequently requested ‘shinies’ will now become the default look for all Clone Troopers.

    For those wanting to use the previous planet specific default appearance, you will still be able to do so as they will now become free unlocks.

    pytx0fufevjo.jpg
    104th Phase 1

    PHASES

    Another of the changes being implanted for this updated revolves around the different Phases of Clone Troopers.
    We will be separating both the Phase I and Phase II Troopers and allowing you to use them as individual appearances as you desire. What this means is that should you prefer the Phase I version of a specific legion you will be able to use them regardless of the planet you are playing on.
    TROOPER VARIETY

    Under the new system, Troopers will be visually different from one another, but all the time retaining the overall theme of their specific legion.

    What this means is a Heavy will have different markings to a Specialist (and Assault, Officer…), but you will still be able to tell which legion they belong to.

    zsokkermdf35.jpg
    104th Phase 2

    ARMOURED OFFICERS

    One of the more prominent bits of feedback we’ve received revolves around Clone Trooper Officers. Under the current Trooper system, Officers only have the naval uniform appearance as an option. Once the new system rolls out in the February update, Clone Trooper Officers will be able to equip armour the same way as Assault, Specialist, and Heavy Troopers.

    The naval uniform is not going away, though. It will remain as a free unlock for anyone wishing to use it.
    LEGIONS

    The changes being made also means that the number of potential Clone Trooper Legions being available to choose from will increase.
    • New Default "Shinies" (incl. Navy Officer)
    • 501st Battalion
    • 327th Star Corps
    • 91st Recon Corps (w/ new helmet)
    • 104th Wolf Pack
    • 212th Attack Battalion
    • Coruscant Guard
    • 41st Elite Corps
    • 181st Armor Division
    • 41st Ranger Platoon
    EXCHANGE CRATES

    With these changes, we will be implementing a system that will exchange the old Appearances for the Phase II version of the new Appearances. As part of this process, we will be removing the currently existing Appearances from the game.

    What this means is that anyone that currently owns either, or multiple of the 104th, 212th, 41st, 327th or 91st Appearances will receive the updated versions via an in-game crate. Simply head to the crate menu once the update is live and you’ll find your new Appearances waiting for you.

    gapcffenin3b.jpg
    501st Phase 1


    APPEARANCE COSTS
    With the inclusion of Officers getting armoured Appearances, the legion bundles will now cost 60,000 credits or 1,500 crystals. Legion bundles will contain all of the Phase II Appearances for a specific Legion.

    Phase II Clone Trooper Appearances will be classified as rare and will cost 20,000 credits each, or 500 crystals.. The Phase I variants will be common and are priced at 5,000 credits each, or 150 crystals.

    When this update arrives on February 27th we will be granting everyone the "Legion Crate". This crate is intended to grant new players a ‘starter kit’ of Clone Trooper Appearances, along with some credits.
    • 41st Ranger Platoon (Phase I and II)
    • All 4 Phase I Appearances for the 41st, 91st, 104th, 212th, and 327th Legion.
    • 60,000 credits

    The "Legion Crate" will be available from February 27th and will be available indefinitely.
    CORUSCANT GUARD

    This division of elite troopers was designated to protect the capital of the Galactic Republic and are identified by the red markings across their armour.

    They could often be found patrolling the streets of Coruscant while also had the responsibility of protecting buildings of high importance. As the war progressed, the Coruscant Guard would go on to find themselves serving as bodyguards for members of the Galactic Senate and even the Supreme Chancellor himself.

    While a lot of their duties would see them assigned to Coruscant, they also went off-world, often accompanying the Jedi.

    One such mission saw them accompanying Jedi Master Yoda to the coral moon of Rugosa for a secret meeting with the King of Toydaria. The small force found themselves up against Asajj Ventress, apprentice to Count Dooku and some of her best Battle Droids.

    Through the leadership and guidance of Yoda, the Coruscant Guards were able to make their way towards the negotiation site, successful in their mission but Asajj Ventress did escape.
    501st BATTALION

    “A great Jedi once told me that the best leaders lead by example.”Captain Rex

    Perhaps the most well-renowned Clone trooper legion, the 501st Battalion led by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Captain CT-7567, more commonly known as Rex, fought across many of the biggest and most important battles of the Clone Wars. Though they had the same hearts and the same blood as all their brothers, their minds were sharpened by the diverse battlefronts they fought across.

    mw9xj8eynua0.jpg
    501st Phase 2


    However, their Jedi General, Anakin Skywalker, was also a source of their creativity and skill. Being forced to follow along with the maverick warrior, the 501st learned to adapt, think outside of their training, and to do whatever it took to secure victory, though never at the cost of innocent people. It was with pairing Anakin’s untraditional tactics and Rex’s by-the-book strategies that they were able to grow into one of the greatest Clone legions the Grand Army of the Republic had to offer.

    We can’t wait to see the new look Clone Troopers deploying onto the battlefront alongside the 501st and the Coruscant Guard. All of the above will be available once the Chosen One Update releases later this month on February 27th. We’ll be back shortly with all the details on Anakin Skywalker.

    Edit: Removed 87th Sentinel Corps as these are the 41st Ranger Platoon. Chosen One Crate is called "Legion Crate".



    Hello. What will happen to kamas and pauldrons? Those are very important and the tranmission indicates they will be gone... Thanks.

    Two options, they were hidden to better showcase the markings,or they will be interchangeable gear, still hoping number two but they would have mentioned if it was so.
  • lmao the salt is real

    what does it matter that the map defaults have been given a legion number? Wasn't in the precious cartoon so no good?

    Just so you know, military units with "th" numbers are generally named in sequence. Given that they go as high as 501st there's clearly there's lots of units in the clown army, maybe you just didn't see them featured yet?

    Mixed phases on the same map is also a total non issue. It's just a helmet. Maybe everyone didn't get the new one at the same time.

    Good job on increasing customization options in a visually authentic manner. Can other eras finally get some love now?

    I wonder what will happen to bandoliers, kamas, shoulder pauldrons, and backpacks. I think they look fine on the class that currently uses them.
    I've always thought pauldrons were a mistake for Specialists, from day one. Clone pauldrons signify officer rank, they should be for Officers only. I hope the Heavies retain their backpacks. Kamas would be good either as Specialist gear, or as a high-rank option for all classes, like if you get a class to level 50 then you can buy the kama.

    Awesome idea. I love it. It should have been like that from the start -- or just map-assigned legions, maybe two options per map.

    So, what "ruined" the game in the first place was the lootboxes. Now you are giving us an awesome lootbox.

    Not sure why you have to be so disdainful and snippy in every post you write. Maybe we should start calling you "Snips". :smiley:

    Anyway, I don't care that they created a couple names for those legions. It's cool. (Though I don't see why the green-striped ones weren't just 41st Green Company, since that's what they look like, but that's a minor niggle.)

    Mixed phases on the same map is also a total non issue. It's just a helmet. Maybe everyone didn't get the new one at the same time.
    Right. They make new and improved armor, transported to the planet, but only issue it to half of the troopers on the battlefield. Sounds legit.

    I agree. Fingers crossed for lots of Imperial customization soon!

    Nah fam I'm not a discount Garfield cosplay. Name's already 1 syllable as is no need to shorten.

    Regarding Phase 1 and 2, I don't know how it works in space wars but generally it takes time for logistics to get new stuff to all the troops in the army. CW is only like 3 years long as is. WW2 for example you had some armies still using WW1 helmets from more than 20 years ago alongside newer pattern ones (e.g. SSh-36, 39 and 40 for USSR, US 1917 "brodie" and M1).

    Pictured, Finnish army troops with both old M17 and newer pattern M38, Winter War era

    Soviet SSh-40 WW2 helmet on right, newer SSh-68 on left. Afghan war era
    nq39vjkcd8az.png

    so yeah, I don't see the issue it all. If anything it adds a small degree of authenticity by making it seem more real.

    Different generations of helmet both used within the same 3 year period are a big deal in a game where can equip your trooper with a First Order blaster from 60 years in the future and have him emote GCW and ST era characters?

    "How it works in space wars" would seem to be the relevant part of all that. The wars of the 20th century finding differently equipped soldiers makes sense, for a civilization that doesn't have light speed travel and armies that number in the billions.

    My main point is, I doubt the Republic would take the trouble to get an entire armored shipment through to a planet halfway across the Galaxy but only send enough armored for half the Clones they know are there.

    And, more importantly, it just never happened in the source material. Ever. so there's no point at all to this change. Everything was fine the way it was, some worlds are Phase 1, some worlds are Phase 2. They could have even added something that alternates between Phase 1 and Phase 2 for each Clone Wars map. So you get a chance for both. but this mix and match stuff is just the typical lazy, easiest route stuff that they've always been doing.

    Different generations of helmet both used within the same 3 year period are a big deal in a game where can equip your trooper with a First Order blaster from 60 years in the future and have him emote GCW and ST era characters?
    Again, as I've said dozens of times, and at least once or twice to you personally, just because someone built a house with flood foundation and faulty wiring doesn't mean that we should just shrug and accept when they paint the walls Dayglo pink. In other words, just because they've screwed up other elements of the game doesn't mean that screwing up a new and smaller element isn't upsetting. It may not be surprising, but it's still upsetting.

    Logically, there had to have been a transitional period where the Galactic Republic was distributing the newer Phase II armor to the various clone battalions spread across the galaxy. Even still, it's already been established in the timeline when The Clone Wars battles included in Battlefront II had taken place, and we know enough that none of them were during such a period. So it doesn't make sense to allow players to select Phase I or Phase II armor types, anyway.

    I really don't like this new option to freely choose Phase I or Phase II armor types, and I hope DICE will remove it, but man, some here are making this sound like such a monumental failure on DICE's part what with the amount vehement toxicity used in their posts. Good grief, you'd think there's no good coming out of this. Overall, this overhaul to the Clone Trooper visual models is a huge step in the right direction. I'm very excited for it.

    You do know that In the Clone Wars show there were Clones that had their Phase One helmets on when the others had Phase 2 right?

    I believe it is Canon that Rex wore a mix match of phases 1/1.5/2 armor pieces throughout the war and into the galactic civil war.

    You are pretending people care about some switched helmet, I don't need an excuse to justify cross era heroes or mixed phases, i simply don't care, what use is finding explanations to obvious choices made because this is a game not a movie? Games are supposed to be fun, and as long as I can have it I won't bother with canon or justifying design choices.

    As far as I love the idea to be able to play a phase 1 or phase 2 clone trooper as I want, I also enjoy immersion and authenticity. As Adricmb suggested in the topic below, a simple way to reunite both the will to add more customization and the need for authenticty would be adding a toggle that lets you decide how Clone players except you (even if you play as Droids) will look in your game. If you want to be shiny clone among shiny clones, so be it. If you want to be a 212th clone among 501st, so be it. There are a few ideas in this topic and I feel you should add your suggestions. Or if you enjoy the idea, help us give it visibilty.

  • Why do you ruin the changes by allowing the choice of phase 1 or 2 independent of the planet?
    Nobody asked for this

    Phase 1 and Phase 2 in the same battle, fatal error

    We already have cross-era heroes and rainbow clones, so it's not that big a deal. I appreciate the added freedom to customize my Clone Troopers however I want.

  • I have a question. Would the armored officer be the skin on the arcade officers also, or no.
  • CWs is clearly the era with the most content since the disney retconn, just fully commit then and get us some more maps like Umbra, Krystophis, Felucia, ect. to play more often with these cosmetics.

  • We should just be glad the developers are still adding more content, and we can almost all agree more content=better. I kind of think phase mixing would be better because it makes it more releastic. Just think, is a Galactic military going to be a type of armor one day, and everyone is going to have a completely different set of armor the next day?

    No mention of kamas and pauldrons in the patch notes. This pretty much confirms they will remain the same and are not in these screenshot to showcase the markings
  • Anyway found a video with what i was talking about:


    You can clearly see different gear on the officer. This was likely only a concept not implemented in the final update, but would have been cool

    Phase I clones do not belong on Kashyyyk

    Well, actually during the first year of the Clone Wars there was a battle on Alaris Prime, one of Kashyyyk's moons, and few months later (towards the end of the first year) Republic forces were called in to repel the CIS off Kashyyyk resulting in a relatively small skirmish. So technically Phase 1 clones do belong on Kashyyyk if you take "Legends" into consideration.

    This said, you're right in that Phase 1 clones do not belong on the Kashyyyk Galactic Assault map we have. The're fine on the Kashyyyk Strike map though.

    Minor technicality, on the whole I completely agree with everything you've said.
    Alone against all these droids....? Hmph... they don't stand a chance.
  • Honestly, whoever you spoke to gave you really bad advice because the 104th STILL have the helmet of Sinker instead of the standard Wolfpack helmet, and then there's this:

    Hey, looks like the final version doesn't have Sinker's helmet.

  • Who else thinks the heavy trooper should get their kama/kilt back? They just look weird and naked without it.
  • So there was an update for the game today where they released free armored skins for the officer class in the Galactic Republic Group. They would give you the armored version of the skins in both Phase 1 & 2 if you already purchased the skin. I’ve purchased the 104th Battalion skins with my credits and it only has the Phase 2 Armored Officer class locked, but the Phase 1 Armored Officer class is unlocked. I’ve tried restarting my game to see if that works, but I shouldn’t have to pay for the skin I already paid for.
  • I for one am loving all the new variants and new dlc content. I love how I can interchange the variants as I see fit. I mean I could go on forever on everything I like about it. Now not to get to far ahead but I do have one question that is gnawing at me. Is the rotj variant armor (ST) on the horizon for battlefront II as well, including the shock trooper variant as seen in battlefront I?

    I bought a new crate while I already contained clones that were in it. When I opened it it said I was refunded $60,000 credits but it just took $60,000 can this be fixed so I can try to buy more that this update has to offer

    They should get their backpacks again, for sure. Not sure why they removed backpacks, was there done big anti-backpack campaign I never heard about? Heavy shouldn't have had the kama in the first place, IMO. It should have been a Specialist thing. Exception being the 327th, who should have kamas on all their troopers.

    While we're on the topic, pauldrons should pretty much be only for officers. have the starting skin use a small pauldron in most cases, then give the ability to upgrade to a medium pauldron and then the full pauldron. the exception again being the 327th, who should have pauldrons on not only their officer but also their Heavy and their specialist. that said, I wouldn't mind the ability to buy a small pauldron for the right shoulder when you reach the highest level of any class.

    Of course, I'm not going to hold my breath for any of that. It's a minor miracle that they fixed the legion patterns at all. Though they apparently had to simultaneously foul it up by allowing mixed phases.

    2 things: Does anyone know how to get shiny phase 1 skins on maps like Kashyyyk or Naboo? Also Dice, I like how the phase 1 heavy finally somewhat lost the backpack and upgraded visor, because now they look more like the movies and shows. Would it be possible for you to make an option to take the gear off of phase 2 troopers as well like the 501st? I just don’t remember them wearing stuff like that in the movies or shows, or comics, or even the OG battlefronts, or even the clone wars game, and even all of the non canon and canon material. I just want an option.
