If they wanted to make an easy 5 thousand dollars they should make stats sort of a mini DLC and sell it for $5 and the thousandish people still playing this game would buy it

    Ohhh please. No dlc you have to pay for. This could be the next micro transaction thing. I like the free content.

    You like “free” content aka not getting content? Paid DLC is a million times better than this “live service”. They should start releasing DLC packets and they’ll make their money back. This free content is all an illusion. Only the daft don’t see that.

    Come on. A 5 dollar dlc is almost micro transaction worthy. No it’s actually the same.
    And nobody wanted that.

    Oh boo hoo. Go take some empty bottles back to the store and there’s your $5.

    @Phyxsius How does paying for a stats page split the playerbase? Oh, right... it doesn’t.

    If we would get small dlc‘s they would probably also include new (better) Blasters etc.

    Stats no, but EA will not stop at this and we can expect flashbacks of BF4 and BF1. Open the can of worms and they'll be so happy to oblige with a 5 map pack from BF1 for only 12.99 bucks.

    Plus, their new approach is no paid DLCs and it's better this way.

    Skins, alternative body options, pink Vader, I'm 100% for. Anything game mechanic related, or anything not cosmetic is uncalled for.

    Or they could make more and better skins to get the money to give said blasters for free. But they'd have to try a little, like make actual nice skins... and more, not pyjamas. Apex Legends gets it and there's no reason not to "saturate" the game with skin options.

    5 new maps for $12.99? Um, yes please.

    We agree on the price.

    Now, how do we have players with and players without on the same map from this fictional DLC?

    should of never been a mess to begin with I honestly found no problem with loot boxes but people these days are a bunch of whiny babys and need something to cry about.

    I would've paid for quality content than free junk. But so far villains like Gen G, Dooku and Anakin are acrually excellent free content imhk. Hopefully the new mode delivers.

    They went because they thought they could make more money with loot boxes, while delivering less substantial content.

    We had it good with the season pass in 2015.

    Post release content for BF2 has been exceedingly poor compared to it.

    Boom, totally agree, it was utterly pathetic the abuse they got for putting stuff in lootboxes that could be unlocked via playing the damn game as well

    Had lootboxes stayed and even took 20% of what FUT does we'd be drowing in content the now, instead its barely anything because the game makes little money from crystal sales for skins

    That's speculation though isn't it?

    With DLC we roughly knew that we were paying for maps, heroes and maybe new modes.

    With loot boxes the transaction and was just that i.e. a loot box.

    It was never guaranteed that some of that would fund substantial content.
  • Good idea.

    Would save me from trying to get scrubs in my 1v1 when I can simply post their stats to prove they're bad.

    As for paid DLC whines, it's obviously a superior system to a "Live service" where pallete swaps are considered content.

    Look at what level of support the last game got post launch compared to this.

    No way. Do you seriously think this game was released with a good amount of content? Those five extra maps should have been in it to begin with. We shouldn't have to pay yet even more money. I think skins are the way forward; there are hundreds they could bring out, but it seems that's not what they're going for.

    You are assuming they would have put some of the money from loot boxes into the game.

    The only thing buying a loot box got you was a loot box. That was the transaction.

    Buying dlc in 2015 got you dlc.

    You guys really are a different kind of breed. All you do is playing video games. every day & yet 12,99 for a decent DLC would be too much.

    Kids these days...

  • There is already a stats page, found by dataminers a long time ago, it is just disabled. Supposedly DICE decided against it because they didn't want Battlefront 2 to be a competitive game, or so I've heard. It's a shame to, supposedly even though the stats page is disabled, it has been tracking data in the background ever since release, so if it ever were enabled we'd see all of our stats since release.

    Season pass + server rental + browser worked great in Battlefield games. Doesn’t split the base, people pay and play what they choose and it removes the need for forced playlists.

    Why they didn’t capitalize on it for series boggles my mind.

    Really? The 2015 game released with nowhere near enough content. (6 heroes and 6 maps!?) They then just charged us in order to unlock the content that it should have had to begin with. You're being fooled if you fall for that. You would have been paying around £100 if you got it all.

    There are still a lot of games these days that come with plenty of content and then release actual dlc (ie. Not charging for content that should have came with the game.)

    EA are notorious for trying to get as much money from each game and personally I'm glad this is the one game where they are aren't trying to do so.

    Well, as far as I can tell we’re stuck with EA for the remainder of their license. Would rather pay and get actual content than have them advertise “live service” and be blatantly drip fed like we have been. That’s just my opinion on the matter. If loot boxes meant we got significant and consistent content drops then I would have been more than happy with them keeping them around.

    I'm not sure about that. Firstly this game now has a decent amount of content. We have most the major characters. And although we could do with some more maps I much prefer the maps in this game to 2015.

    Also charging extra for the new content just breaks up the player base and not to mention that now you can barely find any lobbies for the 2015 dlc. And considering that it wasn't available offline it means anyone who payed for it can't actually play it anymore.

    Also 2015 only got 4 dlcs. The difference with this game is that they've spread it out rather than release it in one go. It's just so they can prolong the interest and life of this game.

    Not to mention that anyone that is buying the game now will actually have access to everything they've released where as with 2015 they'd still have to pay extra.

    So yeah I'd much rather they spread out the content updates rather than over charge us for what should have been included to begin with. I don't understand how anyone would rather they overcharged us for 4 dlcs rather than wait for them to update the game each month or so, like most other game developers do.

    Come on. A 5 dollar dlc is almost micro transaction worthy. No it’s actually the same.
    And nobody wanted that.

    Oh boo hoo. Go take some empty bottles back to the store and there’s your $5.

    @Phyxsius How does paying for a stats page split the playerbase? Oh, right... it doesn’t.

    Stats no, but EA will not stop at this and we can expect flashbacks of BF4 and BF1. Open the can of worms and they'll be so happy to oblige with a 5 map pack from BF1 for only 12.99 bucks.

    Plus, their new approach is no paid DLCs and it's better this way.

    Skins, alternative body options, pink Vader, I'm 100% for. Anything game mechanic related, or anything not cosmetic is uncalled for.

    5 new maps for $12.99? Um, yes please.


    Really? The 2015 game released with nowhere near enough content. (6 heroes and 6 maps!?) They then just charged us in order to unlock the content that it should have had to begin with. You're being fooled if you fall for that. You would have been paying around £100 if you got it all.

    There are still a lot of games these days that come with plenty of content and then release actual dlc (ie. Not charging for content that should have came with the game.)

    EA are notorious for trying to get as much money from each game and personally I'm glad this is the one game where they are aren't trying to do so.

    Hilarious irony is that game got as much if not more free content than this one in addition to the mass of paid content.

    -Graveyard of Giants (Large and starfighter maps)
    -Goazon Badlands (Small)
    -Twilight on Hoth (Large, small and starfighters)
    -Survivors of Endor (Large)
    -Singleplayer (survival) maps ported to Multiplayer for small modes
    -Same number of free DLC weapons and cards (zero)
    -Trooper skins (used the ingame credit economy not tied to Season Pass)
    -Modes like Turning Point,

    only advantage this game has is free heroes but when you've got gamebreaking dreck like Anacancer I don't know that it's much of an "advantage (at least infinite power shot Lando was limited to those who paid for him rather than showing up in every Walker Assault lobby).

    Well, as far as I can tell we’re stuck with EA for the remainder of their license. Would rather pay and get actual content than have them advertise “live service” and be blatantly drip fed like we have been. That’s just my opinion on the matter. If loot boxes meant we got significant and consistent content drops then I would have been more than happy with them keeping them around.

    Combine the DLC’s and compare it to what we’ve gotten for BF2 in the span of over a year and it speaks for itself. Also, BF15 DLC lobbies are dead because it’s sequel has been out for 16 months. I personally feel that this “live service” is a sham and the people that buy into it are lacking something.

    I disagree with all of your points. I think BF15 is far superior in both game play, content and game management. So, not much to talk to about here. I’m glad you’re enjoying and are satisfied with the content drops.

    I agree that a live service is a bad thing for a game. I guess it works for some games like fortnite and fifa. I'd much rather they just released the full game at launch. I'm just glad this time round they didn't decide to charge us extra for them releasing the game half finished.

    Well each to their own. Personally I think 2017 to be so much better. The maps look so much more beautiful and the choice of heroes are so much better particularly now we have obi and Anakin. I never really understood why they added the likes of nien numb, greedo and dengar but left out so many others.

  • @F8RGE, I'm sitting at 350k+ credits with near nothing to spend them on. Is their a licensing or copyright issue concerning skins like The old versions of characters in the ST and Ben Kenobi? Hooded Maul, Bespin Luke? Shadow, Shock, and shore troopers? And other really No brainer legendary releases?

    You need to release like 15 a time at this rate, not 1.

    I would spend an extra $5 to be able to download the full arcade versions of the GAs AND a decent set of AI bot options to play against (more than the base set given now, e.g., enemy team has 0 ~ 3 enforcers, 0 ~ 2 vehicles, etc.). Has to be both, though.

    you are still far from my fortune ^^ but it is true that it is sad to be so rich and not to be able to profit from this money

    5h77k9hfnsaq.jpg

    to return to the first post, lootbox do not pose any problems if it meets any conditions.

    1 the lootbox should not have appeared immediately after the game, a period of 3 months could have allowed players who bought the game on the day J. to progress normally without being in competition with the buyers of lootbox.

    1Bis, DICE promised that people who would buy lootboxes would be grouped together, this was not respected

    2 the DLCs must be ADDITTIONAL CONTENT, fed up with its developers and their employers who splits the basic DLC game that the player must pay to have a complete basic game. Instead of having a 100% complete game and additional content to make 130%. The basic game is 70% removed and you get paid the remaining 30% as DLC, its deceptive technology is increasingly unportable.

    For my part it would not bother me if DICE charged for access to new planet ONLY RESERVED that we also have free planets AND that the planets payanye can be unlocked with the game money.

    This system will not affect former players, they will be able to make money with the generation of young players arriving

    They should sell cheap map packs like maybe 5maps from 2015 for a tenner but for big seasons like clone wars do it for free like they have been. That way people still get free content and also dice make more money by selling a few map packs for a cheap price. I would defo buy something like that
  • I gave them 5k already tho.
