If Strike is indeed a dead mode... add era locked Heroes to it...

Now wait, wait. Don't scream just yet.

First off all. Its just an idea. Lets not get carried away about how much you hate it. Xd I'm not married to the idea either. Just putting it out there.

I love Strike. Its the game mode that got me to but the game. Ever since beta it was my favorite.

Since there has been no support for it, it seems to be dying.

If it's really impossible to find games for it and it is indeed the least used mode in game then I suggest...

Adding one hero for each team. Era appropriate hero at that. That way the GA/ Hero Unleashed crowd can have their fun and all us people wanting era lock can have some form of middle ground.

I don't think we'd miss much since we can't get games in it anyway.

It could be done for all 3 rounds or for the last round if we don't want to much hero madness.

What say ye. Yey or ney?

  • I say ney. Add maps to the mode and it’ll be revitalized.

    No word from the devs on that tho. Plus Extraction is much more requested for new maps.

    Hell no.
  • Wasn't strike advertised as having heroes?
    I swear in the multiplayer trailer the strike showcase segment has a clip of Boba Fett rocket barraging people on Yavin Kuattro
    Add weapons or bad things are going to happen

  • Strike isn't dead. It's just been abandoned since launch.
  • Strike isn't dead. It's just been abandoned since launch.

    Its true but the way I see it there is nothing being done to add anything to it. What I suggest would dolce a few problems the community has. Era lock vs Crossover era gameplay. It would give players who don't enjoy "Events" an alternative. And since no one plays Strike anyway...
  • I’ve not had problems finding matches (London resident here using Germany or Virginia US server).

    I would loathe it. It’s bad enough with enforcers without turning it into a micro GA where each side races to get a hero instead of pushing the objective.

    Can you imagine Endor? Or how about Boba or Palp grabbing the data file on Kamino and flying unchallenged to the drop off point?

    :wink:

    They would not be available on Kamino. Also Heroes should not be able to Pick up the payloads. Like in Ga. Only supporting the troops.

    Strike is essentially 1 phase of a galactic assault map, so heroes wouldn't be able to interact with "carrying" objectives anyways. Although Bossk and his ultimate defense kit doesnt sound to pleasing to deal with on Endor.

    Blast is better ;)

    Nobody really likes strike, extraction is more popular. So expect it to get new maps first.

    In an ideal scenario players should be able to create custom versions of the smaller game modes, just like you can customise Arcade.

    I’d also very much like some kind of party mix game tile that rotates extraction, strike, Ewok Hunt and blast together. Obviously with the originals still being accessible by their individual tiles.

    The long term BUG where it requires an even no. Players on each side ....then the.next bug is random teleporting on spawn which gets more frequent with lag with is because EORMM is still on ....and so the spiral downwards. ..

    Hahah... title sounds like "since the mode is dead, just drop gimmicky heroes in it to finish it off". And does nothing to make it better...just attract Hero spammers.

    To everyone saying they enjoy strike, what I was saying before was, nobody really likes it enough for it to get special treatment. This game doesn't have a big development team working with it now.

    Adding cheap heroes would definitely make me play.

    This mode doesn’t need a few hero player to come boost the count a little and toss balance even more sideways. Weren’t you saying in another thread you don’t like playing the objective? Yeah, no thanks.



    Remove reinforcements, add a few maps(huge stretch) and this mode will be fun again.

    Naivety in the extreme sorry. Attention is given to the game where there is an easy effort like events, chance to offer $priced Skins and unfortunately not bothering with fixing introduced bugs .

    PS adding cheap Heroes would achieve the opposite. Enforcers are the 'cheap Heroes' why not pick them ?

    One could argue that Strike is the mode in witch you are supposed to learn how to play with reinforcements before jumping to GA. Therefore it would make no sense to remove them.

    if they added a hero for each side, they'd need to pull the enforcers and aerials. The player count is too small

    How mamy reinforcements are allowed in strike? A hero could share a slot with a reinforcement. All reinforcements taken - no heroes available.
  • I love Strike, it is my Cargo / Droid Run fix. Need more maps, the loading bug needs solving. I think out of all the modes (Blast aside) it is the one they got right from the beginning. Good variance in maps / objectives, they have just contrived to mess it up with the load / team balancing bug.

    It now needs some TLC, come on Devs, rebel.....give us something that we want!
  • Piscettios wrote: »
    Nice OP and thanks for explaining it out a little. But heroes have turned into the bane of balance and fun in this game IMO. They ruin GA more than make it a positive experience. Cannot see how having Bossk spawn trapping or Palps bouncing around would help this mode at all.

    If anything for a quick fix, they should ditch the reinforcements and make it a straight up trooper mode. This game could certainly use ONE mode that is balanced and fair.

    Agree 100% here. I'd rather Heroes didn't come into Strike. I can't stand Heroes in GA. They ruin the balance and flow of the match, turning into a frustrating grind to try and get the objective while being spam killed.

    I think the last line of your post is the key to understanding this irrational suggestion.

    I doubt anyone’s going to lose sleep over you not playing.

    Strike is my favourite ground mode. I’d even theorise other Strike players play it because there’s no hero inclusion.

    I’m pretty confident heroes would sound the death knell for Strike.

    No thanks.

    Oh well that is very convincing :-) . Tactics are very mode dependent so there is little connection never mind the Maps. Bottom line is why have drop the skill level ( or give the seal clubbers more power ) on Extraction. I think we all can guess why you want the Heroes....unconvincing .

    Based off your “I don’t play the objective in GA” thread, I think I and everybody else that plays Strike would rather you stayed away from the mode. I’m sure the GA players would feel the same. I guess there’s always Blast for players like you?
