Another content restricting "event" despite feedback being mostly against it

We have ourselves yet again another "event" makes content inaccessible to its player base, this time significantly more than the previous "Night Ops" event.

So Clone Wars only maps to "celebrate" Anakin being added to the game. Galactic Assault, Strike, and Blast is affected by this. So what does this mean?

Galactic Assault
Galactic Assault has a total of 13, only 4 of which are CW. Only 4 of 13 maps are currently playable. So roughly a 75% reduction in maps for this mode, solely so people can earn Anakin easier. For those of you who don't know Anakin IS considered "in era" for OT maps and cost 4500 BP. Also as stated in one of my threads earning an out of era hero isn't hard.

Strike
Remember Strike? Yeah that mode that hasn't gotten any attention since launch, this is effected by this and the mode that hasn't gotten a single new map is having maps taken away. There are a total of 11 maps for Strike, only 3 of which are Clone Wars, so a 67% reduction in maps for this mode.

Blast
Now blast, the mode with the most maps in the game totaling at 17, only 5 of these will be playable so a 70% reduction in maps for this mode.

You can't even play as Anakin in either Blast or Strike and they are probably also affected so people can use the "new" Clone skins. There is absolutely 100% no reason that content should be reduced over cosmetics.

I think this is the 3rd Time I'm gonna ask this question to @F8RGE and @EA_Charlemange

Why do these events persist when it is clear that people don't like them? Why are these "events" just content reductions?


Here is this community's (the forum) general feedback on these "events" and the idea of not all maps being available

Out of 259 people (not even a fraction of the whole community but still a good general idea) only 9 people total picked events that set specific map rotations. 6 people liked a CW only playlist out of 259...

    I think it's a good idea mainly to show off the clone skins idc about heroes.

    Though it should be a seperate GA list from the main one.

    Just make a separate playlist for the special events, Like it's NOT that hard to do at all.

    You have ewok hunt, 1 MAP. ONE MAP for like 6 months now. what is that trash. Get rid of it or fuse it into Extraction and Cargo. Such a waste. Rather play Cargo than horrible Ewok Hunt.

  • It gets complained about every time but they do it anyway. I think it's a contractual obligation to promote new clone wars series. ... Ironically it has made me want to throw a gundark at the merest hint of clone wars now haha
  • also why did they remove the ability to arm/override and objective while blocking? you know you can just go up to a saber hero and melee them with basically anyone and they will get knocked off the objective right? the devs need to stop changing things that dont need changing and actually do something more useful I swear to god this is the worst bunch of devs I have ever seen in my life.

  • Man, this is a very well organized and undeniable post. Glaring. It demands a response.

    You mean running an event which an official poll clearly showed the community was against? Damn right we need a response.
  • I'd like to know why they keep deleting content as well, but am expecting an answer about as much as special forces.

    I guess this is their idea of a "live service"

    Yeah, I'm well aware, maybe if I posted something about Clone Trooper armor and it was on Reddit they would for sure respond.

    Maybe the poll was on Reddit too and 100% voted for a CW playlist, wouldn't surprise me.

  • If there was a healthy amount of maps and modes for players then these events might not warrant the negative feedback but there isn’t a healthy amount of maps and modes in this game so it is easily understandable why this community vocally resists these events. Unfortunately it is obvious that this game is primarily focused on heroes, which is why this limited event is taking place now. I like playing as the heroes as well but this game really needs new and or ported maps, modes and weapons at this point. There are more heroes than GA maps, we've been playing with the same weapons since launch, 1 new map in over 9 months that was for 3 modes, GA, Blast and HvV, and we still have a limited amount of modes. Couldn't port Twilight Hoth for the Night Ops rotation. EH with 1 map and no Wampa or Rancor Hunt. One of the best modes, Extraction, has just 2 maps. No large infantry only mode or DZ mode which works for all eras. Plenty of speculation that the new no named mode will be limited in maps. Sure SWBF 15 has its faults but a lack of maps and modes were not a problem like they are in this game.

    First of it brings warm feelings to my heart seeing that 16 % of the community chose the era lock.

    Second. I am not a fan of the map rotation events. I know some people could enjoy them and I get the point. You got new skins you want to play them. You got the weekend. Maybe you don't have the credits? Maybe you spend some $. Nice try, sure. I just hope that after Anakin (who I hope is the last hero for a wile) we won't be getting such events.

    BUT IF WE DO.

    They should not include all the modes. Leave Strike out of it so that the rest of us have something to play. I could go for Extraction and Ewok Hunt but 3 maps won't keep me playing over the weekend and I will not play Clown Wars maps.

    Wouldn't mind betting that all feedback they take into account comes from the echo-chamber that is Reddit. It's easy to pat oneself on the back when one purposefully ignores valid criticism.

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

    The reddit reacts to new clone skins as if they are the second coming, these devs do anything clone wars (at this point i'm convinced that they know this and are taking full advantage of it) and the reddit will blindly praise it.

    People can play Anakin in HvV and use still use the clone skins without restricting the other content in the game, it is just overall less content in the game atm.

  • There’s no good reason to have a separate playlist. Except, well... They’re just incapable.
  • And considering the point is so we all get a chance to play our new skins and maybe annakin I had 4 straight rounds playing as a ridiculous droid last night. That was when I got bored and stopped again.
  • Omg kylo wreks stop crying what are you talkin about? Buff frendzy but vader needs a nerf in Ga lol learn how to play wow

    Wrong thread?

    I think the map restrictions are the worst. If you wanted to give everyone a chance to play as Anakin, maybe you could reduce the price of heroes? That's too much to ask I guess. As an assault class, you can get to 2250 points (half of 4500) faster than the officers by playing the objective on a lot of maps. Sprint to the ion launchers, use scan dart for kill assists etc. Leaving it at 4500 is basically asking for only boosting officers who are lucky enough to have competent spawn partners to reach that point total first.

    You see the same people playing him over and over again. Then by the time you get your chance the match is about to end if you even get that chance since Anakin users mostly hide until heroic might is off cool-down. Easy to fix if you want clone skins prevalent too... have a clone Era map every two rounds in GA pop up but keep other maps available. Restrictions on the limited amount of maps is even worse for longevity of this game.

    Yeah, it’s honestly terrible playing the same dang chokepoints that are Kamino and Naboo, and Kashyyyk. Geonosis would be great, but the map is pretty one sided.

    I might be crazy here, but when Geonosis was released, wasn't the front tile the Clone War maps, and the others were normally accessable from the main menu? I definately remember them saying it, because that was the first time that people kicked off about the limited maps.
