    I am not sure what to think... It is as @DarthJ predicted, so no surprises there, but I am not sure on the last phase. I guess we'll have to see once we play it, but it seems like the match could be stuck on a loop of capital ship > planet > capital ship.
    I also don't know how I feel about only clone wars. Does this mean we won't be getting the mode for other eras? Does this mean that the CIS will have a hard time with Anakin defending? Is it me or there was 0 mention about the planets?
    At least, there is AI. This was a nice surprise, to be sure.
    May your heart be your guiding key.

    Well, more content, but honestly not enough and far below some optimistic expectations.

    The mode itself sounds fun and interesting, but it will probably get boring very soon as it's only one map and one era. I love SA & Extraction but both modes have become boring because of the lack of maps. The new mode will not be any different unfortunately. I'm really hoping they are planing to add some more maps to this mode later on.
  • WoW what a Epic Fail
  • I could cry. But I'm not surprised. I've gone from having little interest but an appreciation of clone wars era to literally hating it. It's ruined my interest in need this game.

    Let's see how it plays but I play BF about once a week right now. I can't see this making a huge difference.

    What annoys me is they seem so proud of themselves
  • Idk how I feel either. They’ve been working on this mode for almost a year and they only have a single map.

    So is it a larger Geonosis map with less players than the GA map? No star fighter content.... again? So this is just going to be a smaller version of GA with choke points and hero spam. Just great. Will wait to see how it plays on the 26th, if it is not delayed again, and then decide.

  • Wow it is actually what I expected: "not a surprise to be sure and not a welcome one"
  • Nerf anakin.
    Make Maul great again.
  • I'm hoping it's good. I'll give it a shot, but I think it needs more maps and starfighters. I am excited though, for sure. This game isn't dead yet.

    Not to rain on peoples parade, but I think some expectations are MASSIVELY high. Seamless ground to air, with 20v20? capital ship crashing and becoming a capture point? Really? Maybe I am too pessimistic with what has gone on in the previous 2 games.

    I expect a cutscene style mode, similar to the Death Star DLC mode from BF15. I expect:

    - 1 map - Geonosis
    - Starts off with conquest or supremacy style mode. Capture points up to a 1,000 points like Battlefield, or supremacy-esque with 1 point being fought over by both teams, with push backs etc. I would rather conquest out the 2 - as much as I liked supremacy, it was imbalanced at times and ended with walkovers in a lot of games. With this games team balancing it would probably be worse.
    - Once this part is done, cutscene hits with winning team being shown a scene of them on a troop ship and landing on the opposition capital ship.
    - 2nd phase is in the enemies capital ship, with 3-4 objectives to destroy for the invading team in order to bring the ship down.

    That would suck, but you're probably right.

    It's 2015's Battle Station mode 2.0. It sounds fun enough, but only one map means I won't even be playing it much in a week or two...

    However, I'm just going to say that I find it incredibly sad that DICE can't even properly replicate a game mode they themselves invented in Battlefield 2142 back in 2006 anymore. Why bother trying to make it again when the transition between ground combat and ship boarding is just a cutscene? The whole draw was that it was seamless and players had to transport themselves to the enemy ship. You could have simply used all this time to make the classic conquest mode on multiple maps instead, and added it to arcade mode like myself and many others have literally been begging you to do for over a year.

    The handful of people who are still making content for this game are doing a thankless job, new content is appreciated and I'm sure this will be fun for what it is so I'm sorry for the negativity, but I sincerely hope they don't expect thanks when they just so adamantly don't care to listen to us. I think this pretty much confirms that there won't be much other content added to the game either. It's just so insubstantial for how long they have hyped it up and delayed it. Best guess is they are dropping it in a few months, I wouldn't get my hopes up for any more real major additions going forward. I wish I weren't so disappointed, but I am.

    Great comment, agree completely.

    I think this is the home straight for this game.

    I appreciate the effort in giving us a new game mode. Sincerely.

    However, my thoughts:

    1. One era and one map. I really don't see how we are supposed to enjoy ourselves in the long-term, being confined to the same area (and era) over and over again. It is why Extraction is so frustrating. They need to include variety. I suppose if we remain positive and supportive, they will reward us with another map?

    2. Cutscene. Need I say more? What is the hang-up in having us board multiple unoccupied ships and individually flying into the body of a capital ship? The cut-scenes from Battle Station were really poor, and actually flickered and were inartfully executed.

    3. Heroes. I avoided Supremacy in BF15 because I'm tired of having heroes run around and rack up 8923703 kills. I was hoping this was more akin to Turning Point, where it was a large scale infantry mode.

    I look forward to playing this and having my expectations altered, but I am unfortunately disappointed. I don't want to be. But I am.
  • I'm going in with low expectations, because I have a feeling if I go in with moderate-high expectations I will be disappointed. My expectations:

    -Just 1 map on release, Geonosis
    -Ship interiors are pretty small
    -The troop transports aren't pilotable, will be a cutscene of troopers loading in and out of the troop transport

    Well, I nailed it exactly.

    No it isn't... It isn't.. this is awful.....just awful.. I am spreading my displeasure and anger across as much of this forum as I can with this debacle of an announcement. Clone ******* wars ???.. CLONE ****** WARS??? One map? Restricted content when we have no choice as no other eras are represented. ******* Joke. I am so so so so so so furious with this developer right now.

    We don't know what the ship interiors are like though. They did say it's big enough for a 40v40 in them .
